How do you compose a new .vb file?

Hello world! I am so lost. How to I make a new file? I opened up notepad ++, typed in a simple pong game, then proceeded to open up make. It did not work and I have no idea how to turn that c file into a visual basic source file. Look at this picture to explain my attempt, then my reaction. Another question, can any c file be turned into a rom?

OK... first of all: the .vb has nothing to do with visual basic. It is simply your compiled c file which then can be run in an emulator or on a Flashboy (.vb meaning VirtualBoy).

If you want to compile a c file you need, besides your source files, a Makefile that tells the compiler how to compile and link your sources. I attached an empty project which already includes everything you need. If you copy this to your cygwin/home/yourname directory and then execute 'make' in that directory it should compile the empty project. You can then include your existing code into this empty project.

I would be way easier for you to simply use vbde (The empty project is included there) though. Just extract it to C:/vbde and start the notepad++ which is included. You can compile the project from within notepad++ then.
