PCPOOL.COM -
Very glitchy, not the same as under Windows - but no
warnings. Doesn't let me play - no controls?
Doesn't show text. Please check out. It's a 44K game, it
shouldn't be doing this.

Colors are usually yellowish - but it's showing up in CGA
colors? WTF?

    game actually works when you press enter a few times
    and f1 for playing the game (the text is just missing for some weird
    reason.

    With the current cvs you get some warnings. (like that is uses set
    pallete/background/border colors)

    Cool. I'll try it again. When the remaining issues are all
    squared away, please feel free to close this. :)

    Please see to fixing that at some point. It makes the game
    unplayable.

    Dear Stilleto,

    Fixed the problem with the text not showing.
    The only "problem" left is the color that is off.
    This feature will never be added as it is not critical.

    the text is fixed. the program was being tricky with it memory
    pages in the vga card.

    Grtz Peter
