Default BHE Surprise

After all my talk about my BHE being broken it's finally... Sort of fixed...
Anyway, I recently decided to teach myself to use DarkBASICpro. So far so good I'd say, I started this making THIS game on the 27th, though I did use numerous bits of code from my previous test-run programs that I made when I was trying to figure out what stuff did.
(I've been slowly figuring it out over the past 2 months or so)

Anyway, this is what I've got so far. We'll call it a Beta:
http://wombat.platymuus.com/dl/bhe2011_bluedwarf.zip

Notes:
Instructions at the bottom of the play window for now(not much there currently)
Only one level, no way to win (you can get 1500 score though)
No replay. If you hit y at the end if you died then you'll just go back to the game over screen.
If you want, you can edit the map file. It's located in the images. Just open up paint and go. The pumpkins are always at ground level, they are the orange dots on the map(pipette up that exact color, it's the red value that makes it work) The wall bits need any color with the red value being 0, and the green value is elevation.

Haha, thanks for the support. Though I'll probably finish and rerelease this before next year, and do something new then(Not necessarily a game either, whatever is currently interesting to me at that point ).

Right now I'm working on jumping pumpkins so they can follow you up stairs and such. Terrifying! (and a better map making system)

Oh man, that's no good!
Any further description on that issue might help so I can know what's wrong. Also if you tried editing the map, it might mess up.

What should happen is:
Title Screen
Pointless Screen
Level # Screen
---From this point until the game actually starts it could take a bit, lots of stuff being done in making the map---
'loading map' screen for a bit, then a blue screen with the map in the top right tends to flash on for a fraction of a second.
And then the game starts. A bit sluggish on my computer(not sure about others), and the starting position just begs to point out the fact that the camera can pop right through walls.

It dies around Loading map

It may just be taking a while though, and dying because I switch to something else

That's SpaceManiac's issue.

As I recall it's a pretty low-end and unoptimised game. It ran like garbage on my laptop (which I used to create it) and still, later that year when I got a decent PC it didn't run great (though it was much faster).

If you'd like, maybe SpaceManiac still has it somewhere and can put it on Wombat or I can see if I still have a copy and toss it up on Mediafire, or send it by email. Whatever's easiest.

I'd taken it down since I didn't think anyone would need it. I did keep a copy though and it's now up at the same link (for a while anyways).

Well, some of the few active members do quite like digging around in the depths of the forums to find old stuff. This wasn't that deep, but it happens.
