doesn't anyone else agree? pretty much every example has some sort of missed-spelled--or missed--variable, or other parts messed up also...

kinda reminds me of the text books...lol

has anyone else noticed the same probleM?

With every new version on WOOT I try to run their Sprite example. With every version I shake my head in frustration.

i don't miss the sprites that much anymore, it's actually kinda easier without them... i just want fullscreen back! well, there's other stuff too but mostly fullscreen.




hehe... my teacher said 'WOOT' (it's still funny even if it wasn't meant as w00t)

ya, for some reson it seems to get wores as it gets upgraded. at least they put compiling back in Razz

very annoying when the code examples have typos, i could live with spelling mistakes and stuch in the discription but having code in there that they did not even test? come on it only takes like 2 seconds to copy and past it in to turing Evil or Very Mad

First post here. Hey everyone, what is WOOT?
Is that the same as OOT?

WOOT is just Windows Object Oriented Turing. I guess my terminology is redundant, the last DOS version was not OO. Sorry for the confusion. Oh Mazer, I had to go to Urban Dictionary to figure out what that heck you were talking about.

seriously? you call yourself a compsci teacher, and you aren't even familiar with 'w00t'?

Doesn't "w00t" originally mean "we own the other team"?

w00t can also mean, like YESS!! or Huray... in tah kinda sense...or at least i heard it used that way a lot.... in games like Starcraft.. anyways.... Turings help files are crap.... try using the joystick... none of the stuff in there helps.... im glad they fixed in new version i hear..... have to upgrade... lots of their examples dont work.. and use the palette command which dont work no more... kinda sad and pathetic realy... for a profession company...well they'll fix it eventually in there upgrades i hope..

It's not that bad actually, the help files actually do help when you have no one around. Yeh some codes dont work, but they are fixed easily
