Lovely game, but FYI I also get the same error mentioned when I try to start by clicking on the mouse. A brilliant effort though and a lot of fun to see BASIC games on a ZX Spectrum that are actually playable and engaging :)
I wonder if the mouse issue is a firmware/os thing. I did run into mouse issues and crashes with NextDAW using previous 2.07 versions. (I think it was 2.07g)
What version are you running? Be good to be able to pinpoint the reason as I am sure there will be others run into it...
Hi, thanks for responding! I'm using the latest release (22.09) which uses 2.07k. Feel free to ping me over email at ptsochantaris at gmail and I'll be happy to try and debug, I'm just not very familiar with Next basic or I would have given it a go myself. I'm using an N-Go board for what it's worth, and the mouse is connected to the port via USB -> PS2 converter -> Mouse/keyboard splitter -> N-Go. Hope this helps!
Ah, like l-o-l, the main thing I see here is that you're both running N-Go boards. Wonder if the mouse driver is not talking with the N-Go port in the same way.
For starting the game, I read the actual port directly so obviously that works. The mouse driver just was a faster and more efficient way to work with the mouse.
Thanks for the feedback. I will go pester some Next nerds and see if anybody else has run into this... 😁
