Boulderdash also has that annoying wait before you can play the game, Jamie has copied it quite accurately!

yes, unfortunately there really isn't any way to reduce the time it takes to do that. There were two choices:
1. Wait that long (I tried to make it seem less time by moving the view over the level while it loads.),
or
2. No game.

there were no other options. If the game is made, it needs that long to load everything in the level. The only way for it not to take so long in loading is simply not to make the game at all.

Sorry, but I thought people would rather have the game than no game!

Don't mind the loading times (remember tape loading on the speccy?, 15 mins and then it failed?)
Jamie's version takes 20 seconds on my pc. maybe I've installed it differently, (admin privileges and all that.) first install was slow but since then it's been OK. :vhappy:
But to me the main point is that Jamie has shown us all what Dizzyage can do (and it's a great game :v2_dizzy_thumbsup: I remember Boulderdash on the spectrum)
(So there are some good things to come out of Glossop...:dizzy_biggrin :)

it should only take a few seconds to actually load the game. What she's talking about is the individual caves loading, and the time that takes.

It's not that big of a deal really. i think we're so used ti having everyone instantly now. It allows you time to stuff a biscuit on your gob and have a gulp of scolding hot tea. :v2_dizzy_cool:

I'm curious how people are getting on with this? Have people got far with it, or just given up?
