Saw Jason's mining hold on the forum, and brought back fond memories of the game Gold Mine on the ZX spectrum.

As with my tribute antics, I think I've made a good clone of this version into DROD using a lot of scripting techniques.

The result is a bit of a mixed bunch. It plays great, as long as your PC is quite fast. I'm hoping the 3.1 pach might improve matters, so we will just have to sit tight and see.

I wasn't able to copy the "flood" hazzard from the original game thouogh, but I have improved the "rockfall" hazzard.

The game is fully playable. Please post any questions or bugs you may find, if it runs at all of course :)

Cheers,
g

I'm on it for about five minutes, then bed. The power of a geomatrx hold compels me! :D

Very nice work, I hope you get into realeasing this hold, but it took me 3 minutes to do this, You Should make more complicated, such as Rockfalls taking away your energy, or even make this deeper.
Good luck on this hold anyway!

Thanks Ez. I too was tired last night. Thought I'd try to get something out for you all to try though, and in my haste, I forgot to reset some test values - level number being one of them.

I've fixed this now, and should hopefully take longer than 3 minutes :)

Ok, it seems to be working now, but I can't imagine going through 96 levels of this. :( I got through level 7, but I can't do much more without getting bored.

Yeah, I got bored myself after 20-odd levels.

from version 0.03 upwards, I've limited it to just 20 levels and 24 items to pick up.

I anticipate v0.05 is the definitive version, but please post anything that doesn't seem to make sense (values, text, etc.)

I think this may be worth bumping. Geomatrx, if you still visit, do you have intentions of releasing this hold?

Did anyone tried this out? If it's complete and there are no bugs maybe it could be released, geomatrx wrote that this version was the definitive one.
