Thanks,

I tried both of your suggestions; neither worked. Inside QB, I went to FILE, OPEN, to see if the game is loaded into it. Nothing. I don't know how to load the game into QB.

I just double-click the game on my desktop and QB opens, but there is no game file inside of it.

commands in dosbox aren't working either.

Load "Gamename.bas" could work too, inside Qbasic itself, but I don't know exact syntax of it, so first way is preferred.

I typed "/run kingdom.bas" into the blue screen of QB. Nothing happened.
I typed "qbasic /run kingdom.bas" into the blue screen ob QB. Nothing happened.
I typed both of those commands into the BLACK screen of dosbox. Nothing happened.

Double clicking the game file immediately sends me to the QB blue screen. But nothing is loaded into QB. When I go to FILE and OPEN, there are no files to load.

I typed the recommended commands into the blue scrreen, but nothing happened.

Is there anyone out there who actually runs .bas programs??

The /run switch should work: http://www.computerhope.com/qbasichl.htm

/RUN Runs the specified Basic program before displaying it.

First at all, in the DOSBox it's emulated disk, not real one. Most probably that you mount current dir as disc C (it's default behavior when you are opening .exe right in the DosBox). In that case you'll see your files _only_ if they resides in the same dir as qbasic itself.

And for second, I would recommend to get "real", DOS QB (linked on the previous post is wrong - it is embedded in the DOSBox). Here is normal v.1.1.
