BASIC variants for A500 OS 3.1?

I'm trying to find something to program and play with BASIC in OS 3.1 on my 500 but I'm not having any luck. I tried AmiBlitz2/3 but I get a crash complaining about ramlib. I only tested this in winuae.

I also tried acebasic but when I run the compiler on the simple examples that come with the system, it gives me an overflow error. If I try to compile with the original_42 compiler it actually crashes the system completely. I tried this in both winuae and a real 500 with the same result.

TrueBasic and PureBasic should work fine. The former may be hard to find (I used to have a working set 20 years ago), the latter is a download from the company. I think it is inexpensive or free.

I believe I tried purebasic also, a free download from their site, but it wouldn't work either.

I'll go for AMOS and see. I was really curious about if someone had one up and running on their system with 3.1 and could verify it worked.

I have AMOS Professional 2.0 and it runs fine on A500 with 3.1 as long as you have 1M of RAM or more.

As for Blitz Basic, you can't run AmiBlitz on an A500, but the original Blitz Basic 2 works fine.
