I was also able to replicate the diagonal cheat that Walter mentioned :lol: I'm not sure if this is useful for you, but I developed VideoPoker and FishTank in gtBASIC in case you were looking for any additional exam...

Re: Video Poker

First of all, thank you for fixing these issues (_spriteStripeChunks_ and byte arrays) with the new compiler version! This probably would have taken me forever to figure out :-P The real follicle twirling dilemma is how did it compile and run on your system without errors and crashing? As I said I c...
