Trust me, you are not the only one who did not initially notice that all-important sidebar at CPC-Power.  :)

Cool, more games like Space Froggy or just anything using Sprites Alive would be good!  :)  I've only checked out the early Sprites Alive which uses RSXes to brighten up BASIC programs, though the Sprites Alive Compiler completely rewrites programs in another language doesn't it (like Space Froggy I think is written in something else). Good to see more available manuals for the different versions if that's the case!  :)

:/ Ok I read the manual sunday: it need a complete rewritting of the program, for example, you must remove all line number to goto gosub etc.. and insead add labels (like .swamp  .bridge) before any part f your program, more frustating the number of variable: 26 of two bytes.... Maybe I need ti refresh my english, I think I made a confusion, when the manual say bytes, is it for the name or the lengh?
