Seems I had a bit of luck and found myself free for a few days.
The weather not so good so I cracked on with the coding of Galaxy AD2370.
Happy to release my present version.
Probably best run on am emulator QL2K or SMSQmulator!

You should make all those manuals into a QL Programming/Gaming book!

It seems there are lines missing near the end of the program. Here are a few lines:

Code: Select all

668 END DEFine
5650   IF astro(n,3)=0
5660      ch=16:INK#ch,2:PRINT#ch,astro$(n);' Falls'
5670      IF side(Gp1,3)<30:side(Gp1,3)=side(Gp1,3)+10
5680      IF side(Gp1,3)<60:side(Gp1,3)=side(Gp1,3)+5
5690      astro(n,5)=Gp1:GO TO 5470
5700   END IF
5710   SSInfo:GO TO 5630
5720 END IF

There are no lines between 668 and 5650 and the 'Efine' gives a 'bad name' or 'unkown procedure' error when LOADed.
It would be nice though to test this on QPC2 with SBASIC (maybe it runs too fast? :D ).

Thanks janbredenbeek for pointing that out.

No extra code after line 668. The rest is a left over a bit of quirk from saving with QL2K or to do with QLay not sure myself,
It happens. Any way I hop I’ve cleaned it up with the latest upload.
