Oh, I should mention that storing any number to rand will work.  It's called seeding the random number generator. ;)

Oh, so all I had to do was seed the rand?
I love doing that.  I always tell my friends that I can predict the next random number. lol

The game is a great speed for basic, and the controls are very responsive.  :)

Thanks, ralphdspam!

@ztrumpet: I don't think the pxl-Test( thing will work. I tried it, and the speed dropped from about 4 frames/second to under 3, and the graphics don't end up well. I attached the file in case you want to look at it.

Yeah, I also don't like that as well.  I guess it's fine with the flicker. ;)

One thing I noticed when I glanced at the code:
You have some code like "formula->Str0:expr(Str0 which is pretty cool, but it could be optimized if you wrote it like this: "formula->u:u (the 'u' is [2nd] [7])  I hope this helps. :D

That code was just the one that attempted to deal with the flicker, so it won't be included.  ;)

Okay, sounds good.  For the record, I've used this a lot in my Homescreen Game Pack, with "42=abs(getKey-63->u .  I also use Ans or K instead of the getKey for maximum space savings (I use u, v, and w).  If you want, you can do that with any of the Y= vars, in any of the four modes.  There are even more if you use XtraVar (by Calc84), but I've never used more than 4 at the same time. ;D

Okay, thanks.  ;D

So, should I make the "hard" mode available to those who didn't beat the normal mode yet? I'm leaning towards a yes, since I never beat the game on "normal" mode. (My high score is 1231 out of 1426, I believe).

Well, as long as no one has any suggestions or bugs, this might be the final.
