Interesting error I've been having lately. The code was crashing while I was running the game but then that stopped happing. Now its crashing after I leave the ide... ?! I don't really understand why. Its RTM.EXE thats crashing, the loader that comes with Borland Pascal. I probably need to search around and see if there's a patch I need to download. I also might try moving over to the Windows based ide that came with BP7.0, but I just don't like the windows editor..
Then again, I might just make this my excuse to move to C++ or something. I've installed the DirectX 5 SDK on my system and looked at some of the included executables. I'm obviously going to have to find better documentation on DirectX somewhere else. Hell, maybe I should start building a vitual engine for Linux, we're all going to be running it in 8 months you know.
Not much else going on. I'm might make some good money this month, we'll have to see what happens. Should have a check for a grand before the end of next week and as much as 2k more by the end of the month. That will set me up for this and next month. I've still got to keep after it though, got lots to do.
Great news for Tempest! We've found someone who not only has some pretty good art skills, but he's got that energy and desire that's so hard to find. He really wants to get into this. On top of that, he's seriously interested in game development. This could potentially lead to good things in the future. I'm a happy guy.
I'll keep posting here atleast once a month. Honestly one of the reasons for not updating in a while was the fact that I had to go through the entire weekly update archive and add 1999 to the menus on each and every page. Now that I've done that, I might update more frequently again. God I hope I never have to add 2000 to the menus.
Take care everyone and thanks for the support I've gotten on this game project.
