#5002780 Remaking an old game - Ethical?

Posted by Bentm's Games on 20 November 2012 - 04:26 PM

no, i think this is fine as long as the game is old enough. As an example, look up to the moon on steam. Its a remake of horizons from the 80s

To demonstrate what Washu is talking about, a correct example of what I was trying to demonstrate earlier would be more like this::

[source lang="cpp"]void _writeText( const char* str ) { int index = 0x00; char* pstr = (char *)str; unsigned short *vidMem = (unsigned short *)0xB8000; for( ; *pstr; ++pstr, ++index ) { unsigned char c = *pstr; vidMem[index] = (unsigned short) c | 0x0700; }}[/source]

Sorry for screwing this up multiple times trying to make a simple point lol... Like I said, it's been years and I can't copy code from any of my projects verbatim because there's a lot of code, headers, macros and functions used in numerous files and it wouldn't make sense without posting it all (overkill for such a small, contrived example). So I just have to either try to strike up examples from memory or write a new, simplified version; as it so happened I did that wrong, lol... Posted Image

Hopefully this time I did the demonstration correctly haha

Guys, guys, guys. Calm down. I dont need this info (but thanks and you are some smart peeps) all i need to know is how to make a program that i could add buttons animations and interactive objects into so it will give the illusion of being an os. I need this to test usability, and help my ability in coding and other software. So far REAL studio seems like my best bet, any suggestions

Herro. Im not sure if this fits in programming, but i have a question. I had a mind-blowing dream for an operating system last month, and i need to make a prototype. How would I go about doing that. Would i use flash or vbs or what? I would make a prototype like this guy:
