Gold Award Winner


Pappa Lapub How to add background music to a Small Basic game RZ: "Very cool. It's always fun to add some music to the games."
Michiel Van Hoorn: "Depending the music choose this will be very annoying ? Great insight into the use of events"
Ed Price: "Great scenario and set of instructions! Good job on the code commenting. Could be improved with a See Also section and breaking up the code with more explanations (the full block of code could be hosted on the MSDN Code Gallery and linked to from the article). Great article! A lot of people will want to do this!"
