Project»Gorilla.bas Screen Burns

 



Screen burning a couple vintage IBM PS/2 Model 60 computers and a Dell Win95 tower using the Gorilla.bas file found therein. This QBasic program code file was modified to make a static white image which maximizes the burning functionality. The Gorillas video game file was included for free on billions of Microsoft DOS and Windows installs between roughly 1990 and 2000, making it one of the most widely distributed video games of all time. However, the file was buried obscurely inside the operating system folders, such that hardly anyone knew of its existence.
