@6ch6ris6: in the program, on the main screen there's an option for 'File Management'. Tap that option and you'll see an option to 'Read QR Codes"... most programs will have more than one QR code, and the program will walk you through scanning them all, then save the program on your system. it seems to save to the system automatically, because there's also an option 'Save to SD Memory Card' that allows you to copy your programs to the SD card.

edit: or what iphys just said, haha :3

edit the second: arrays are effin' killing me; i've been beating my head against a 'duplicate definition' error for quite a while now with no progress made whatsoever. it's the only DIM in the entire program, and the variable being used isn't used again except when referring to the array; ffs idk wtf i'm doing wrong. i'd kill for some sort of SmileBASIC tutorial that went over everything, because just looking at other peoples' code isn't really cutting it anymore.

hey, anyone (like me) who's interested in creating a text-based adventure game or something, check this out: Creating Adventure Games on Your Computer, by Tim Hartnell. It's a really great book in terms of walking you through the planning and stuff that goes into this kind of thing — i'm not all the way through it yet but it seems like a truly solid reference for this sort of project.

it depends on what kind of game it is... if it's a F2P MMO of some sort, i'm not a fan mainly because usually the good items are available immediately to whoever has the funds, e.g. you're not working for what you have. When I play a game and i'm up against someone who's better than me, I want the reason for that to be because the other guy worked harder and put in more time, not because he had more money in his bank account and was able to purchase a +50 Mallet of Hammering and +75 Shield of Awesome immediately upon signup. F2P MMOs tend to balance in favor of people who are able to spend more money on them — otherwise you're left grinding forever to pick up super rare drops, and at that point you're also fighting against god-knows-how-many other people to get those same drops. there's a point where it stops being fun, y'know?

F2P solo experiences I don't really mind as much, and some of them can be pretty neat. however, the game you're describing in the OP probably wouldn't interest me. idk off top of my head what would interest me, but i'm just not feeling a F2P Mario platforming title atm, lol.

@theblackdragon, why would you want to see the pre-installed source codes? Were you going to try and manipulate the codes, or were you just going to try and mirror them in your own fashion?

I was attempting to figure out how to ask for user input and have it respond (ask a question? [y/n], user inputs y and gets answer A, user inputs n and gets answer B, user inputs else and gets something dumb) but after quite a bit of trial and error, i still didn't understand what i was doing wrong. i wanted to see how it was done in a different program, perhaps, but i couldn't figure out how to see their code because i was viewing them through Gallery Mode — in order to see their code you need to go in like you're creating a new program and then manually load them from there. :3

Guys, I'm only going to say this once (and I wouldn't be saying it at all if I hadn't already had to delete something from this thread, so this message isn't solely preventative, mind you): if perversion is what interests you, please do your own research or find another forum to discuss your curiosities in detail.

Considering the image was edited out by me, I'm assuming the comments deleted were by me or someone else acting in a moderatorial stance as well. It couldn't have been anything too awful since you weren't given an official warning about whatever happened (nor did i bother taking a screengrab before editing your comment), but chances are you should take a closer look at the Community Rules before you leave your next comment at Nintendo Life.

edit: wait, i remember what the image was — it was a facepalm macro. those have long-since been no bueno here at Nintendo Life, and I was in too much of a hurry to replace it with a cute dog image. :3

As for users deleting their own comments, we know this is a problem and Ant is working on it. If you're in an article, game, or review page on the main site, post a comment, and then try to delete it from said page it will briefly delete itself and then pop back up again. Some users have reported successful comment deletion via their user profiles (remember that your comments show up there too now), but if you can't delete your own comment(s) that way either, please let us know via Contact Form.
