Seeking text-only demo programs

Post by RichardRussell »

I'm on the lookout for interesting demo / test / example programs that use only text features, i.e. no graphics, no sound, no mouse etc (and not MODE 7). The only such program in the current set of example programs supplied with BB4W and BBCSDL is hanoi.bbc, which makes good use of changing foreground and background colours.

If you have any programs of this kind I would be most interested to see them.

Richard,

Have a look at my BB4W entry in this Rosetta page:
BB4W 15 Puzzle Game

I would hardly label it as a graphics program, but maybe it helps. Please let me know.

Regards,

Mike

Very nice. It needs a line added at the beginning to set the colours initially, for situations when the default colours are white-on-black, e.g. when running in Matrix Brandy:

Code: Select all

      COLOUR 0 : COLOUR 143

I'm sure I've seen a text-only version of the 'Snake' program, but I can't find it. Does anybody know where it can be found?
