Hi Dark,
Probably. Though someone would have to want to port the code to a language
that will compile an executable. Interestingly enough, the .bas extension
files are used for standard code modules in VB, though methinks it probably
wouldn't be compilable in that format.

Best Regards,
Hayden

Well, if it takes that sort of trouble, ---- would it be possible to have 
them converted to something more playable the way The great escape already 
has been?

That would be welcome indeed.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
