I'm pretty lazy, so I like when you only have to press a couple buttons instead of type something out :P

You probably should have just created a new topic for the new poll.  Now there's no record of the previous results :(

lol
it's actually a bit harder to make it a 'type-your-command-game' too
and the options are most of the time (on calcs ) limited

I prefer number two. It tends to nbe more user-friendly. For some reasons, command input is what kinda took me away from Ultima V to be fair. I just can't remember the commands x.x

Of course, I made a command input type game before, altough all you typed were digits. I had no choice, though, because the calc on which I made this game (a TI-81) had no Menu(/Getkey commands

I know, on those lder games, I could barely remember them myself too
but thats beceause those commands are pretty large and difficult

the disadvantage with menu's is, you can't place hidden secrets or stuff, beceause it just all appears on yr screen :S

shit
that's a result that I'd like to have seen just the other way

(btw: I think the previous line sucked, but my grammar ain't 100% ^^ ( at least it's better than a Russian with Google translator 0.0))

yeah i agree with the secret part. Secret commands can be fun sometimes. Just make sure to not make text commands too long and complicated to remember, tho

uhu
anyways, I'd make it just "action subject"
and that's it

but is there a way to make a text parser in pure basic so if you something it evaluates the words separatly?

I think something like
Code: [Select]
:"DOTHIS TOTHIS"→Str1
:inString(" ",Str1→A
:sub(Str1,1,A→Str2
:sub(Str1,A+1,len(Str1)-A→Str3
should work.  It puts "DOTHIS" in Str2 and "TOTHIS" in Str3.
