No point doing this list to be honest, as it’s clearly going to won by the monumental William Wobbler :lol:
No chance—Weetabix versus the Titchies all the way.*

I'm probably with redballoon, but I still think Willow Pattern is worth a mention.

Re: Site Updates

One note: this Bandersnatch barcode program better would be classified as "demo", not "simulation" I deliberated between the two genres, and opted for simulation because it was a pretend representation (like the teletext simulator). But since you mention Ralf, demo does feel more correct today. Dem...

Remove FLASH because it's horrific,
Do you mean the command only, or the property as well?
add in a FILL for flood filling regions of the screen.
Good call, as long as it's not painfully slow.

There is a small mistake in this update.
This is weird, I can't find any trace of you in the SC search, and I thought I didn't add you properly yet! Can you link to where you found this information?

Re: GLUF

Haha, poor Denis,

There's only one thing worse than being given post-release bug reports, and that's being given post-release bonus feature requests :mrgreen:

Re: Plus one, minus one

Add a Plot Graphic style command that would place a character at pixel position. This could be used with the OVER command so that it would merge with whatever was on the screen at the time. Good call. You're thinking sprites in BASIC? Even better would be PLOTSPRITE, that does it with a 16x16 graph...

Aye, dropping GO TO may be too radical, so I'll lose INVERSE. Having said that—without GO TO, SQIJ would never have been possible.

Re: Plus one, minus one

Hehe, good thread. I'd remove GO TO * because I consider it harmful, and I'd replace it with a command that allows you to LDIR data. I guess it'd have to be called SPUNKDAT . So SPUNKDAT 32768 SCREEN$ would LDIR 6912 bytes from 32768 to the display file. *or INVERSE, because not once has it been use...
