PALZ (Work in Progress)

It's supposed to be a virtual console assistant but the only finished apps are settings, notes,debug and calculator.

Calculator has been added to apps
"Filler" is playable in games as number 3 but cannot be exited.

Calculator is to receive new functions "powered, rooted,etc."
"Filler" should be fully operational later on.
"Backgrounds" in settings should be removed.

Thanks a lot! I've been thinking of scrapping the text adventure aspect. I will re add it but, it'll take a lot of functions and I'm trying to arrange my code for better navigation.

The best thing about this community and lowres is that this is for fun in coding, exploring ideas, and sharing things :)

I am often inspired by what others post here, even little things :)

And its OK to try something, get stuck or sidetracked, and maybe try working on it later... its also OK to get busy with real life and then come back later when you can :)

My biggest problem is thinking too big too quick and get overwhelmed... its hard for me, but its best to start smaller and get something that works... and then add or expand on it later .....

I've done smaller projects. That's where I learned basic commands and the likes. I just wanted to morph everything I've learned into something that works

Very cool, best of luck... its fun getting something that works as planned... i rarely get something to work precisely as originally planned... maybe 2 or 3 times, usually i have to go a few different directions to get things to work... about half the time i just kinda let a project go unfinisihed for one reason or another... and a few times i get VERY lucky with my code ;)

Thanks a lot. I've filled in the filler game. Not perfect yet (if at all) but I'm getting there. I'd also have to relocate some Sprite data to allow for more apps. And also, nice work on your programs. And thanks a lot for the advice.

Dont hesitate to update your above program, so we can see your progress... also, it allows others new to lowres how you work on and upgrade code, and may help encourage them to try their own code ...

And thanks for the compliment :) i am mostly half asleep when i code, and also am bad at graphics and music, so my stuff never get that polished work... i mainly focus on new ideas, or ideas that seem challenging, or games made like i like them... there are many others here that have fantastic graphics and music, and a polished look... that doesnt discourage me having fun here ;)

And i am always glad to be helpful as i can :)
