Version 1.5 is out!

I have updated the game again, with some new great features.

  • Timer Before you start the game, you have an option of using a timer. Just type /timer, then the number of seconds for the timer to begin, and then the timer will start as soon as you select a difficulty level. This is supposed to mimic the speed drills that elementary kids do in school.
  • Colors It is now easy to change the background color of the text boxes. Just type /setcolor and you'll be shown a color palette where you can choose a color.
  • History You can now quickly enter previously entered commands by hitting the up arrow button. This is supposed to mimic command lines.

Bug fixes:
- More flexibility in the arguments for the custom difficulty level.
- The character for multiplication turned from * to x, because the original character had been getting confused with a period or the plus symbol (+).
- Window opens in center of screen instead of just the top left corner opening in center of screen.
- Typing anything with /say in it used to cause the command to do what the command does (print to the screen), but with the first five characters cut off. Now that is fixed, and /say has to be at the beginning of the text for the command to be valid.
