@MrPixel, please find enclosed an example from the ZX Spectrum+ User Guide. Note the use of the RND command to add some interest, the BEEP command to add a bit of sound, and some For / Next Loops. Flash adds a bit of fun too.

Also note the inclusion of the code within the CODE Tags, rather than a screenshot of your listing.

Code: Select all

  10 BORDER 0: PAPER 0: CLS
  20 CIRCLE INK RND*6; FLASH RND;120+RND*8,80+RND*6,RND*80
  30 BEEP 0.1,RND*60
  40 IF RND>0.9 THEN GO TO 60
  50 GO TO 20
  60 FOR y=-2 TO 4
  70 FOR x=0 TO 6
  80 BORDER x
  90 BEEP .05,x*y
 100 NEXT x
 110 NEXT y

I can't remember who told me, but thanks to the user who showed me how to create animated GIFs with Spin.

I'm still baffled at what purpose the program is meant to be serving.

That would be a cracking CGC entry.

Bit unfair of you Peter to use the extended capabilities of the 128k machine. :)

Looks like a good starting point for an archery/darts game.

@MrPixel , On the toolbar when you create or edit a post is an icon with '<\>' on it. Select your text then press this button, and when you click preview or post it gets displayed as formatted code. You will see CODE tags either side of the selected text. Much nicer than a fuzzy screenshot.
