This has probably been already discussed (forgive my bad memory and lazyness of re-reading th whole thread ), but two ideas:Chema wrote: ↑Sat Jul 01, 2017 12:08 pmIt would be much better to have a proper mouse on the Oric, but that is not a reality yet and probably will never be for most users. Besides that hardware did not exist back then, and I like to stick to supporting only the hardware that was available. Using a joystick does not benefit the gameplay too much, as it is the acceleration thing of the mouse, which makes it convenient to move the cursor comfortably.
- could be cool, as in Sierra games, to move the character on screen with keys. Sierra used the arrow keys, which are used here for the cursor, so why not for instance IJKL keys? Assuming it could be done in 43 bytes
- about Joysticks, the PASE interface had two ports. One joystick for the cursor, the other for the character ?
