Just played Battlesphere Gold again for the first time in some month and remembered that I wanted to ask something since I got it actually. Is there any reason the "cursor" colour flashes from orange to blue and back again every ten seconds? I always thought it is a good idea to highlight the selected option because the dark blue is sometimes hard to read against black, but why does it flash back to blue. Was there some intention. Doug, Scott?
Fiddling around with some codes I found an interesting behaviour of my energy. First the laser count starts garbled and then counts down then my energy drains completly and the first ship that fires at me kills me. That was weird. Oh and I found the little pilot again who controls the flashing starbase hehe, forgot about that...fun memories...
I'm lost regarding what "cursor" you mean. Depending on what you mean it could be any of several different screens.
Also, we never said the codes were foolproof. They're just debugging tools we left in for you guys to have fun with. It is possible to set things to illegal values and make it behave oddly. That should be considered part of the "fun". :-)
It is in different screens.I meant the screens with the dark background and stars where for example in free for all you can select the difficulty, number of ships, respawn time and so on. Or in gauntlet number of bases and difficulty etc.
If I go up and down on the options the cursor is highlighted. That's what I was referring to. Let's say the number of ships. So there is a 15. This number changes from the blue in which everything else is written on to some organge and back to blue. I just thought that it was odd it woud flash back to blue and not stay different since that makes you know where you actually are. It is nothing important just saw it again and asked myself if there was some purpose.
Yes it is interesting to see the game behave in strange ways using the codes. I just forgot about some stuff that can happen.
By the way talking about codes...when do we get to know what's up with that codes no one knows what they do? And what about that other shiptype I once read you talked about which is still undiscovered? I guess after the big raid for codes has come to some halt for the last few years we could use a hint or two ;-)
