Lately, I have gotten the bug to finally Jaws script the
Abandon ware Stock Car Racing game.
After many years of scripting Strat sport games, I finally felt confident
to attack this project.
Although the Indy Auto Racing game is similar in design the on field track part
of the game is different. So, in a way I am scripting 2 games at once.
But, running into a run block with the Stock Car racing game.
Whie the INdy car game the .exe files all work on Vista, the older Stock Car
game has a file that uses a 16 bit system.
It may work on XP, where I am able to get the window to come up with out the
full screen error.
Jaws is not able to see what is in this window.
The program that is giving me fits is only a input form.
This allows the gamer to input Driver's info like name car number number of
starts, wins finishes and so on.
The output is stored in a text file, a flat database.
Now I have looked at disassembling and other things to void the most likely
Program it. AS I speak I am downing load VS 2008 with ASP.net and plan on
getting the Jaws scripts for it.
Also, picked some docs on how to and teaching docs about the subject.
What I am looking for is some hint on starting and usng Visual Studio with Jaws
to help me out.
Being an old programmer like myself do need hints.
So, any hint also on making a form to create a flat text file database would
mean a lot to me and others for the 2 games.
