It says that you can use an ASM utility ... which utilities are allowed?

yes all ASM ultilities are allowed only for graphics rendering because the actual routine has to be in BASIC

Netham45 sorry if I misunderstood your comment but it seemed to me that you were saying there are no rain routines in assembly and the reason I posted what I did above is because someone like tr1p1ea could very well program a rain routine in Assembly and have the person pass some variables through to the ASM program. Once again sorry if I misunderstood your comment but that is what I got from it.
