i've been wanting to get the full version of blitz basic for a while now, and now i am finally able to. but i can't find where to buy it for like $20. i know codersworkshop.com had it, but now it's shut down. does anyone know where else to buy it?

I saw it once somewhere, on an unofficial site for $40-60. Its no longer supported, and I don't think you'd get the Blitz membership. My advice, if you don't want something better like BlitzMax, or Blitz3d. Save your $20 (over the 40) and get BlitzPlus a supported Blitz with membership I believe.

BlitzPlus (or 2D BlitzBasic) is sold on the main site for $60. But I would suggest getting Blitz3D, it may be $100, but it includes everything Basic\Plus has but more, and if you change your mind and want to make 3D games you have the choice and don't have pay an extra $100 for a new version.

BTW, Lava, I'm sure you know this, but BlitzPlus is a later language than BlitzBasic. I also agree with what you said, save your $40/20 so it doesn't cost you $100/60 later.

hmmm... maybe i'm not able to get it. i only have like $22, so i guess i'll blow it all on something else, or save it for later. thank you though, both of you.

Well, it would be a doubly beneficial experience to save up your money for it. First you would get it. Second it would be a good lesson in persistance, and patience. So far I've been saving more many months for a Bow. I won't list the price, but I assure you it is more than Blitz3d.
