are you going to put this on lexaloffle?

The short answer is maybe. :)

The long answer is it depends on whether I want to subject myself to a bunch more comments either telling me that the gameplay is confusing or that it crashes and then giving me a lovely context-free screenshot of a crash. I spent the ratings week for the game desperately trying and failing to patch up the many show-stopping bugs present in the game. The prospect of returning to the code after six months and trying once again to bang it into shape is not one I look forward to. There would also be the temptation to change the game and keep adding to it, which would probably be a trap.

Out of interest, why would you like it on the BBS?

not sure tbh

honestly, I kinda enjoy studying source code, and playing around to see what I can do

Runtime Error line 299 tab 1

Pretty engaging fun game!
But I got this unexpected error out of nowhere. Patch this up. Other than that, love this <3

Thanks for catching that. It should be fixed in v1.01. :)

Got this error again on the v1.01 :(

Haha the bug that will not be squashed. It *should* be fixed in 1.03, fingers crossed. :)

Hope the experience will be better this time. I am always up for seeing this small yet fun Quake 3 fangame get better <3

Yet another bug on the v1.04 :(((
