Re: Add loading screen to .tap file

Re: Submissions wanted: Woot! 2018

Hmm, how about a short assembly tutorial? Something simple Personally speaking I'd like that, I still struggle with assembly and would like to know more.

Hello, deadline is the 8th? Earlier up it says the 9th! I'm used to software deadlines being extended but not reduced! I have been making a game, should be ready next weekend & I'll send you a private message if it's ready then. It's more of a Christmas cracker novelty than an epic new masterpiece, ...
