I'm sorry the halloween game didn't work out, but hopefully we'll have
something good to play from usa games before the end of the year.
Just as to the situation with the Supernova Api used for access (Hal has
been renamed supernova screen reader for some reason).
dolphin actually have it (it's been used in Quitter and supported libraries
which is why blockparty outputs to Supernova), however they haven't made a
general public release. Why? ---- because they haven't had time to document
I did explain to them that this is absolutely ridiculous! I've had people
say quite legitimately that they don't choose to use supernova becuase of
the lack of support from certain programs, and it is true that when a game
or other application is reliant on sending text directly to a screen reader
rather than printing it on the screen, it's not really useable with
Dolphin stated they were! going to fix this when they'd finished supernova
12.5, with it's rewrite of internet support, and sinse that's now done, I'm
hopeful the Api should be showing up soon, ---- indeed were I not busy guide
dog training currently I'd phone them and see where it currently is.
Hopefully when it is actually fixed supporting Supernova with directly sent
text will be no more difficult than with Window eyes, Jaws or any other
As regards the review curser though, that really is one of the strengths of
Supernova. It for instance automatically reviews columns logically which is
why games liek Smugglers are easier, and also has great ways of moving
around the screen, my favourite of which is the find feature which can go to
This is why I generally myself don't find games that require it such as if
titles or old dos games like piledriver or fallthru difficult to play,
indeed while the direct output method is fine too (I can always use sapi as
I usually do), I wasn't unhappy with usa blackjack for this reason myself.
Beware the grue!
