Thanks for the kind words! Jo22 - that's cool, I've used all the versions of Delphi up to 2005, but never Turbo Pascal—will give it a try!
You're welcome. ^^
I noticed you used Delphi 2 for the 32-Bit version, also.
That's really cool! I bought a copy from the UK years ago, because it can create binaries that are very compatible (early Win NT etc).
Before this, I learned programming with Delphi 3 Pro.
It was bundled with some of the books of my childhood/teenagehood (Delphi for Kids).
Other versions I used were Delphi 7 and Turbo Delphi 10 (free) a few years ago.
When tinkering with Delphi 7, I noticed how to make older versions of Delphi use the native elements of Win XP (I searched the web, but Delphi 7 made me aware of it) .
A very simples example program can be found here: Re: Programs for building software (dos, windows 9x)
That being said, I don't mean to hijack your thread. I'm not very good at programming in Delphi, either. And of course, there's no need to make use of that code. The game looks more nostalgic with the classic GUI dialogs, likely.
I'm just happy to meet someone who's also doing some (retro) development in Delphi. 😃
Because it's really an interesting RAD environment, besides VB Classic.
But unlike VB Classic, it's more platform independent. And can compile DLLs, even. There used to be Kylix on Linux, for example. Or Lazarus on Mac OS.
