I'm Already Slightly Intimidated

Recommended Posts

It's not that I don't like writing games and stuff for the X16.  It's that I haven't used sprites in my games yet.

So what I have are BASIC programs that are *almost* compatible with other Commodore computers.  Okay I've started using the RAM banks, so that's relatively irreconcilable.  But I still feel the "pressure" to use more of the unique benefits of the X16.  Plus, a plain-jane BASIC program just isn't that sexy.  Gotta have graphics.  There just aren't enough hours in the day...

Don't be intimidated. Embrace what's at your disposal and make it work for you. Some people do amazing things with PETSCII graphics alone. Every contribution is "good enough". This isn't a competition. The important thing is to enjoy the journey.

PS: Personally, I think BASIC is sexy.

I completely agree with what Matt said. You can do amazing things with basic. You don't have to worry about learning the more complex stuff, with a little ingenuity and thought you can come up with some amazing solutions so simple people will wonder why they never thought of them. Just have fun and follow your instincts.
