Oops, There is some serious trouble with the program flow -what was I thinking?-, with as result Menu.exe eating memory. No problem, just don't let it run for hours. I will try to fix that.

I am aware of my shortcomings Terry, that's why I chose this name. I also prefer improvised music, LOL.

I haven't started playing with it yet, but I can already tell it's great.   Better than sliced cheese.
Reminds me of PLATO's 0airfight.   Carry on, Master of the Green Screen.


It works better if you plug it in.

Thank you. I checked out Airfight, looks familiar indeed. It has the correct math, Helicopter Rescue doesn't, I'm afraid...
My programs are always WIP: I'll try to improve the gameplay too, for example: more then one airfield to create somewhat of a storyline.
Also planning on different routes for the enemy vehicles instead of having them all heading for the base.

This is a VERY cool game. I think I have seen this before. I don't think I survived for very long then either... I must see if I can get the joystick out of storage and try again tomorrow after I have had a good night's sleep and a morning coffee.

Well done!

Thanks T&T for bringing this program over here from Walt's site, which I think is down and out for an indefinite span of time.

Gotta admit, I played this like 20 times in the past week. I keep getting better, but the enemy (maybe the 5th one or something) that shoots back tends to get the best of me. The sounds make this very compelling, especially the gunfire.

If you suppose the program is due for more edits, do be as public about that effort as you would like. We all love seeing the sausage around here... sausage being made, that is. Once that period is over, it's got a permanent home in Samples.
You're not done when it works, you're done when it's right.

Thank you!

Mentioning the joystick: I connected mine after a year or so and I noticed the throttle doesn't function properly. Could be in the software or in the hardware. I will look into it. (Or maybe buy a controller)
Note that it is intended to be a mouse game, joystick support is an extra and you cannot replay your flight when using a joystick.

Hi. Latest version. It's still eating stack, must be the GOTO and GOSUB spaghetti. I give up. :(
A few changes though, ver2.23.
