Well i feel proud that it was made just for our school , it wasnt meant to be out fora another 4 months apparantly, i think its a great update , the joystick update really helped me out and the tell funcion ( reason why it was released) just made turing worth while for me

its nice to know that updates are comming out Confused even though its like once a year... this is like a way of saying

but really its just same shit, different numbers... The update was mostly just a bunch of additional functions, most of which we already wrote ourselves at one point or other. Size and speed are still horrible and GUI is still difficult to implement. The only noticable update (other then some bug shorthair was apparently having) is View.UpdateArea which could be used for animation of only a part of the screen, and is likely to result in a tiny improvement of performance in animation heavy applications (such as games)... which is nice to know.

I WANT MY DEBUGGER BACK until the put the debugger back to tell me what I did wrong I dont want to use it. My school has kept using 3.1.1. for that simple reason ITS EASIER TO USE!

BTW How do you skip over to a specific line of code in the program. I cant make my game work if you cant get back to the main menu. I just wish Turing loaded all the procedures before it did error testing that way I could run my stuff in a simple manner

use a procedure to fix that.

let me explain this MY PROBLEM LIES IN THAT PROCEDURES CANT OPEN ANYTHING CHRONOLOGICALLY AFTER THEM! So my games can never go back to the main menu. I want to know if there is a friggin command to go down in a program to a specific line in the code

there's no such line Rolling Eyes well it's known as goto (VB has it, I know that much)

but turing will not allow you to do some potentially "not safe" operations.

<< is suddenly pissed off. I guess my program will have no way shape or form of getting back to the main menu. 1 problem the money from 1 game is carried over to the next (meaning you lose your money) I had it working SOMEHOW before but it kinda got deleted (that was a months worth of work BTW and I'm trying to recreate it b4 wedensday)

If only turing read through the WHOLE program first it would make programming in it SOOOO much easier
