Notices for 8th August 2006 to 6th August 2006

Tuesday, 8th August 2006

Betbest1 has furnished me with another screenshot for my collection, Son of Crtl. And there’s a second picture making it a double bill.

Also posted is Fetch Silly Cursors, a patch for Fetch 3.0.3 to replace the doggy activity cursors with easier-to-use animated arrow cursors.

OK, here we go: part two of the blast from the past into buggy DOS games.

Oh, talking about DOS games: I have just posted version 1.0 final of QBasic Gorillas: Fixed Edition. The only change I made was to incorporate an old fix from Gorillas Deluxe, of correcting the value of the global variable SunHt. This should fix the issue of bananas occasionally blowing holes in the sun. Fixed Edition has been beta for over a year and no-one has reported any bugs, so I am declaring it final. Come to think of it, no-one’s ever mentioned it at all…

I have also inducted my first entry into the Telcontar.net Hall of Shame for not only thieving my bandwidth but then going on to make a horrendous mess with it.

A classic bug of the moment, from one of my favourite DOS games. Tomorrow I will post some more funny pics from another DOS game.

Now I have to go In Search Of why the above entry is listed as “Posted 5th August 2006”. D’oh.
