The forum seems increasingly quiet; and changes increasingly infrequent. However I'm still using my BASIC Engine boards.
I've been transposing code samples from INPUT magazine (I actually still have original paper copies of this) to BASIC Engine and my kids have enjoyed typing them out and learning.
We've made an adventure game, a maze runner game, and started on a racing game.
I've been messing around building an interpreter that runs on my Mac capable of running BASIC Engine programs (for fun/learning).
Here's hoping for some more updates!
