Hello. If You have a very fast pc an You can not see the names of "the team", Try this: after pressing keys, appears to You the Welcome's message, press the "ESC" key to clear Welcome's screen and soon press "F4" to see output screen. There are 13 names, each one has a diferen color. I have a faster pc and it works well for me.(I'm a Qbasicoholic too)... Have fun.

It does work! It works best on a slow computer, such as a 386, or 486 (slow 486, pref.). Anything faster, and you can't be quick enough. get all your fingers on the 6 keys ready to press them. After having "qbasic" already typed at the prompt, press enter, then straight away press down all those 6 keys you had your fingers poised on. Works great! Neat trick: it even works on Edit (the versions that rely on Qbasic)!!

I had no luck. Probably because I'm running a 900MHz system. Is there a place to see a screenshot or something?

Try downloading bochs or another pc emulator. If its still too fast, try running a slow-down program. You can find them at download.com .

I've tried this in DOSBox (version 0.72), and even with the command "cycles 500" (to have it emulate a very slow PC indeed) before starting QBASIC, I got nothing but the standard start-up. Does it depend on a version of QBASIC other than the one I have? (Mine came from the Windows 95 installation CD)
