Re: "A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Oct 2018 – Feb 2019), 1000 $ 1st prize

I completely agree - it looks like my car accident has decimated any hope of putting together anything recognizable as a game in time... I hope you are recovering well dude! i am the luckiest man alive... doing well, walking, talking.... was 1 mm from actual death... scary https://i.postimg.cc/FF2W...

Re: The Birth of BASIC.

it is a continual annoyance to me that FB does not directly handle sprites(and animation)/PNGs/sound, though I think I understand the reasoning....

I think the graphics also had a sprite system built-in... not sure if this was the c-64 or the vic-20 though...maybe both. I remember I was always jealous of sprites with my poor apple II...

I like the use of the H...

Behavior trees are often used in more advanced games: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behavior_tree_%28artificial_intelligence,_robotics_and_control%29 yes, behavior trees, FSMs, and HFSMs, as well as scripting... usually a mix of all of them in some capacity.
