Not sure what's your spin on the original concept The original Lights Out was just black and white. I love the fact there is more solutions to the puzzles It's in the nature of the game. At first, moves in several places are interchangeable (at least, with 1 color/ 1 pattern). personally I would ch...

It's a nice maze program. The generator is similar to one I did for a procedural dungeon crawler back in the QBasic days called "Bad Day". Edit: I'm glad you fixed the speed issues. The game moves much slower now. It's a lot like Anteater in a way, except your trail is the anteater's tongue from tha...

Back in 1998 I wrote a great prime number program in QBasic which went up to 2 billion (the signed integer limit at the time). But I was stymied by the lack of understanding about printer drivers (old Apple II users could just send data to the printer, and it printed! What was all this about having ...

A great issue! I'm always glad to see some game I hadn't heard about before. Will look forward to Dungeoneer (It looks like my unfinished Roguelike would if it had the graphics of Hyperspace Delivery Boy, but that somehow works!) and Stunts.

Wait, so they're saying Win 7 is no good? But it had such promise! How is this foreknowledge of OS foredoom going to make Win 8 look good?

Not sure I like the sounds. Any any particularly reason you didn't use FMOD and some free more pleasant background music track? PlayMIDI was the only thing I was able to get to work on my old install of FB. I didn't have the chance to change that. Perhaps for 1.2. After playing the game it didn't c...

Whenever the block strikes me, I say "OW!" and move on. I usually start another project and decide to come back to the old one when the mood strikes. By keeping several irons in the fire, I can switch back and forth until one of them finally gets completed. On the other hand, keeping track of severa...

The use of Dim is so ubiquitous, it may as well come from anywhere or mean anything:

The largest text font is 8x16, because text screen technology never advanced beyond 1981. :) However, graphics fonts are the way to go, provided you use DRAW STRING() instead of PRINT, and of course the graphics screen. There should be plenty of examples of its use in the manual. The only drawback i...
