From http://nslog.com/2005/12/20/deal_or_no_deal_algorithm/ , there is one comment that should be useful, although it is not authoritative: The banker's algorithm takes the average winning value at any given point in the game (which is the sum of the unexposed cases), multiplied by a sliding scale f...

Hey everyone...yeah, I haven't been here for quite a while. I've started college - majoring in electrical engineering - and got a job programming last summer, and I just really haven't been motivated to make another game. I actually don't even use my 83+ anymore; I have an 89T now, but I have no clu...

Dwedit sounds right. Try doing something like this: .db tC, t2ByteTok, tLo, t2ByteTok, tLd, t2ByteTok, tLe, tSpace . . . ; continue for "here" (for mixed case) or just for all caps: .db tC, tO, tD, tE, tSpace, tH, tE, tR, tE, tEnter I'm not sure if it will work, but you should try it. I go...

If you want to try out C#, Borland C#Builder is a good free IDE. C# is one of my favorite languages because you can write programs quickly and not feel guilty as I find I do using VB (because it seems a little childish for some reason -- well, at least with VB6, not sure about VB.net). And while I'm...

I was just wanting to know what the level codes are.


Haha...nah, you can find them out on your own. Either try to beat the levels or use VTI and disassemble to search for them, whichever you think will be less work. :D

I'm sure that on the right platform such an idea could work, but as assembly programmers most of us are fine with writing low-level algorithms, so I don't think that using low-level algorithms would make the AI very dumb, necessarily. You could incorporate the genetic algorithm idea, though, by havi...

so you mean I would have to provide each separate letter for the typing effect? Basically, you print out the string one character at a time, but it doesn't need to make your code much longer. You would have the text in a string somewhere, and you would make a loop to print out a character and advan...

My sister has a pair of wooden shoes, and both of us have "Dutch costumes," which I assume are 1700's or 1800's style since I imagine you must wear pretty normal clothes over there.

WOW! :shock: It looks really awesome, and not just because of the amazingly smooth and detailed graphics. I see you already have a bunch of items, switches, etc. worked in there. I can't wait to see what's next. Keep 'em coming!

I think it's because of the lines in the Clearspace routine where you "add a,7
\ ld (Menucurpos),a". You don't want to change the cursor value here.

Hope it helps!

Sure. I'll try not to give it away, though.

You only need 2 bombs from the above area, and you need to save the rest. Remember that bombs can blow up everything except for metal walls (and doors, of course).

I did most of the coding and debugging in August and September, but then I sort of got sidetracked by life for a few months, so I didn't finish making and incorporating all of the levels until January.
