Suggestions for new version of bg
Hum, this is an interresting question Carlos.
I think that support for wav files is a really usefull. I think it will allow devellopers to do awesome game, like i've never dreamt before. So, do it, and do it well
To answer to the question you asked about the decimal or hexadecimal notation, I think you should consider backward compatibility. I explain, i think that there is a kind of confidence-based relation between the software user and the software programmer. Indeed, when you create a software, you aim to provide to user the ability to do one thing, for example, but the user of the software also hopes that the way to do this thing will be the same for years (or even for ever) so that the user would not have to program the same thing twice. But, if the software programmer decides to changes se syntax of his software, despite the "agreement" that exist between user and programmer, the user's life become very anoying, because nothing works well anymore and the user must change every piece of code.
So I think that changing the way a software works is not worth as long as you do not provide support for the way the software worked. Obsviously if the change in the software does not affect widely the codes working with elder versions, you can change it. As an example, I decided to delete the '/s' option BatBox, that provided way to play "songs", because it was neither simple to use nor used by the community, so that does not affect anyone. And instead, i will add an option to allow user to make kind of sprites !
To end, i think it would be worth to make a little soft that make it possible to create sprites more easily
Also, do you use skype or similar, so that we could maybe talk more easily ?
Finally, I'd like to distribute your softs, especially BG and BHX, maybe modified versions (for BHX), along with my project 'Dos9'. I think i will also rewrite the documentation of the BG and BHX, first, in French and maybe Further in english, so does it raises a problem ? This rewritting would be for a kind of man page viewer for both windows and GNU/Linux.
