    15:5?  Seems there’s a code blip about zero-fills.

    In other news, aaaaaaaaaaaaaa!  That was a good game.  I think I managed to swear four or five times, which is good in my book.

    I see that part of the masochistic allure is that you must be running Windows in some capacity to even play.

    Clever, clever.

    violet, and others sans Windows:

    Go ye forth and check out DOSBox.  (I assume, I know, that MJO runs in DOS proper; haven’t checked.)

    In fact, that’s a fab link for those with Windows, as well – oftentimes DOSBox has things (drivers? stuff?) for running older games that the newer versions of Windows don’t.

    Interesting game, really, but it gets a bit repetitive.

    And by “repetitive” I mean “JESUS CHRIST STOP WITH THE GODDAMN SWITCHBACKS”. I fully realize that it’s the only way to make some of the traps work, but come on. I mean, it’s frustration through tedium. It’s almost sadis- heeeey…

    Anyways, time: 21:25.

    Holly: Been a while since I been to the Yoyo Games site but I recall them saying they’re developing a Mac version of Game Maker and possibly for other platforms in the future. Whether it’ll be easy enough for one version of GM to create an executable of a game for another (for example the PC GM to make a version of the game to run on a Mac) I’m not yet sure about.

    Cr, it looks like the game code itself is interpreted, and the runtime just wraps the game in the same fashion as an InstallShield-type installer (well, that’s how I’d do it, and that’s how Garry Kitchen’s GameMaker from back in the day did it).
