Web application security (helped me with an earlier question posted in this forum)

Country names and ISO standard codes for the world (HTML, XML, TEXT)

Useful when handling registration forms etc.

PHP coding links - decent tutorials on OOP, databases etc

Will add more later, this could be a decent resource if we get links together

First of all thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread because its very informative to say the least! With that said I'm a newbie when it comes to programing of any language even though I recenlty passed my "Intro To Programming" class in college (programming in "C"), unfortunately programing using the "C" language isn't very helpful for what I'm trying to do!

Basically I'm a huge fan of an old computer game called "Tony Hawk Underground 2", its a crappy older skateboard game but I love playing it! The only problem is that you can't run any resolution above 1280 x 1024 (and there are no available widescreen resolutions available either). I've spent lots of time viewing every folder and file within the games directory looking for a "Config" file or anything relating to it with no luck.

What I have found is hundreds of files with .VB suffixes which leads me to beleive the game is programmed using something called "Visual Basic" which I think is designed by Microsoft? In anycase does anyone know of any programs that will allow me to view and edit these xxxx.VB files (again keep in mind I'm a newbie when it comes to this stuff so I might have this all wrong)?

It was very easy to find free compilers for "C" programing but this has not been the case for Visual Basic. The only thing I have found is Microsofts Visual Basic which is not a cheap program to buy (and I can't find any free downloads). Of course if I'm able to find something that works it doesn't mean I'll have any idea what to do but at least its a start and it will be fun to learn more about it.

I have a feeling that nobody here at Guru3D reads the "Programming" threads since there is only 2 threads in this section but I thought it was worth a shot. Thanks for all your help in advance guys, even if you can't help specifically wiht my questions!
