About This File

This is a minesweeper clone for the Commander X16. It allows custom minefield sizes up to 38x24, with almost any amount of mines.

To start, load and run MINEX16.PRG.


  • Main Game
    • Left click to reveal a tile
    • Right click to flag a tile
    • Click on the face to reset
    • Press space to open the configuration screen (will reset the minefield)
    • To exit, reset the machine (Ctrl-R on the emulator)
  • Configuration
    • Space to open and close
    • Use the + and - buttons next to each digit to change the width, height, and number of mines
    • Numbers are capped to a specific range; attempting to select an invalid value will set the number to its maximum or minimum value
    • Click any of the presets to set all of the numbers at once

Note: The game uses kernal functions to handle the mouse, so any weirdness is most likely caused by the emulator.

It's good but i put the file where the commander x16 emulator is and i load it and it says file not found error. How to fix? I tried it because once it worked.

Response from the author:

The program only requires MINEX16.PRG in order to run, so the issue is likely that the emulator cannot find this file. Keep in mind that the emulator searches for files in the current working directory. If the files you want to load are in the same directory as the emulator, try cd-ing to that directory before starting the emulator (this requires starting the emulator from the command line, if you are not doing that already). To see the files that the emulator is able to access, use LOAD"$" followed by LIST. I hope this fixes the issue!

Very much reminded me of games from my teen years. I enjoyed this and realised very quickly I could play this for hours without thinking about it. I didn't hear any sounds and think that might be an improvement. THANKS!

Very Nice! However the left+right click don't seem to be flagging or revealing the correct squares.

Response from the author:

Thanks for the review! When I tested this feature, its behavior appeared to be consistent with Windows 3.1 Minesweeper, in that it does not mark squares and only reveals all unflagged squares around a tile with the correct number of squares flagged around it (another useful description of this feature is located at http://www.minesweeper.info/archive/MinesweeperStrategy/mine_general.html). However, I may have missed a bug. If you have an example of incorrect behavior, please post it using the "Get Support" button.

Fantastic clone. Though, left+right click on the original flips the blocks if you marked the correct boxes as mines. If you add that feature, I would certainly pay a few bucks for the game.

Response from the author:

Thanks for the feature suggestion! I have added left+right click to the latest version.
