Re: SCREEN1 = SYSVAR @ JSROM

It seems, ACT came (unfortunately) too late. I do not know a game, which was produced with it (but there seem to be a few). Steve had done it (as usual) all in machine code and also the finished games were EXd. A bit like a compiler. Would be very good, if this program would be freeware, unfortuntel...

The Quill Adventure Writing System do not offer any graphics on the QL.

Re: Manual of Pointer's and Writer's Toolkit

Hi Derek,

thank you. Unfortunetely, this is the version 1 of the manual, but it matches with the standard keywords of version 2.

Re: ICL OPD

I wish, I had known the modifications to generate a standard composite output, when I once bought my OPD from TF. The monitor, he sent with it was broken, so I modified my CUB to run with the OPD.

Re: Warlock of Firetop Mountain

Thank you :) . It is not so badly written as QL.Gardener :D . And a GOTO in a DefProc just makes sense if compiled, as intended to run as SB it is badly behaved.
