Re: Starting a Prince of Persia port...

Looking great Kieran. Well done. Always bowled over by your work! I've been reading the thread with interest and remember you showing your sprite plotting routine at Cambridge. As you progress, it'd be great to see a dev diary of sorts - I guess you're doing that now. I'd love to read about how you ...

Hi there, this is a very late thankyou note for the ABUG/Acorn World Cambridge weekend in May. Apologies for it's lateness.
