Thanks for the tips guys! I actually tried connecting a external keyborad to it. The problem is that the laptop still reads the internal keyboard first, so the CTRL key that's glitching still makes the system mostly unusable, because the comp "Thinks" the key sometimes is pressed down, ev...

The turtle pace speed was pretty good, but I had cheating in mind. The X and O could move at normal speed while the text was slowed down so that I could target and hit it. :P Are the movements were tied together? It seemed that each object moved at the same speed and is updated as one. Is it possibl...

That's another cool one though in my olden years, my reflexes are a bit too slow to keep up with the pace... maybe add a "game speed" option for the next demo?

I wasn't sure if floppys in general expired after a long period of time or whether other factors came into play The answer is both; the media will...

Re: developing new retro games

Thinking about making a retro game and was wondering... If you're interested in making games, then you should take a stab at them whenever you get the chance... the medium isn't important, but the experience is. I like to try the old school games at any stage... it's fun to see how others tackle ch...

At first, the demos were awesome even with genres that I didn't normally play. I got a kic...
