Latest version

In which I try more custom options for turning off memory-intensive(?) operations.

In which there is pretty much all the tutorial I have planned.

In which you get to play hotseat against another player. (Labeled "Human 1" and "CPU1" currently, they're both human players.)

In which I maintain score, but do not report it at the end of the levels.

okay, so the font of the writing is impossible to read.

This is the same image, at the default screen resolution. More legible?

Yay! I got a couple of the smaller versions to work. :)

Wow - that's good news. If you examine the bat files, you can see the arguments I'm passing in. You might want to experiment to find the largest resolution that actually runs on your machine, because I make no effort to ensure that the text is legible if the screen's tiny.

Or, you can just click through the dialogs - most of what they tell you is explained more clearly in the README file.

You can also run the executable from the command line like so:

wtipd_dos.exe -h

which will give you a list of most of the recognized arguments and a (probably not very helpful) description of what they do.

I'm glad we found something that worked.

It just now occurs to me that one piece of information that you might find handy to be able to read is the player stats display at the bottom of the screen. The (current) format is


PLAYER: "HUMAN 1" or "CPU 1"
PLANET: unimportant flavor text, but several real astronomical bodies appear in the game
SHOT #: this is your score - only displayed for the current level, but I'll soon tally them up for an overall score.

Even if you can't read the text, you should be able to tell the difference between HUMAN and CPU by length, so you can play hotseat with another person if you like. Or play yourself, I have no problem with that.

Hm, it occurs to me that I only set the -z (don't antialias the lines) flag on the smaller BAT files, so it's completely possible that something like this might work for you:

wtipd_dos.exe -z

Good luck!

er, I used angle brackets in that previous post, so the format doesn't read correctly:
