Re: Cursor Sprites

Hi Dilwyn, I tried your Caps programme on the Q68 and SMSQ/E v3.34, worked really well.

Thanks Derek. Goo...

Re: Warlock of Firetop Mountain

I had a quick look - at least LOC_078 is missing as a procedure in both copies. and LOC_999 is missing in both copies - this should be the ending procedure, when you die. Would be nice if someone with an interest in and knowledge of adventures tried to complete the game by adding suitable routines ...
