Hi I am new to blitz3D, I am have problems runing the games that come with the software I updated the program to v198 and the Docs to v188 why are they giveing to so many error. Just to say that all of them. What can I do to fix this?

You could post error messages for better understanding what is going on.. One issue I found when running some samples was that textures were non power of 2 and it made blitz not to load texture and therefore giving some error in debug mode.
Fix for that is to resize textures to power of 2 ie. 256*256, 512*512 etc.

Where are you getting these programs from? I've been through every sample and I just can't find one called "Wing Ring". All I can find is one called Wing Pilot and it works fine.

it's there in "media" folder.

Nope, it's not. Must be something they only distribute with new versions.

It looks like a small bug in the program.

There are some loops in the style For x = 0 to ImageWidth(logo).
This is one pixel too many. The upper limit should be ImageWidth(logo) - 1.

Likewise for ImageHeight().

The graphics card may 'pad' images, using a slightly larger block of memory, to suit the hardware. Depending on how this is done the 'off by one' error may be harmless, or it may crash with a Memory Access Violation.
