Because all the buttons look pretty much like generated in Photoshop bevel and embos default settings...

i agree it looks "photoshopped" but i can assure you as someone who played it, that it was real.
let me see if i can maybe find a copy that i downloaded and post it if so.

Well that was easier than i thought -- Ruffnekk had attached it to his assignment submission. Including the source code!
Before posting it I'll message Ruffnekk and see what he wants to do.

I should note that you have to have a text file with some words in it -- each word on a separate line. You can load this file in the game and it will use these words, keeping track of the words used before.

Also, you can change the "font" by editing Matrices.txt. Each character is a 5x5 matrix with an "X" indicating a filled point and a "_" (underscore) indicating an empty point.

A thing that kinda sucks, though, is that you can't drag the window around - having it forced to be centered is a bit annoying. It does look pretty nice, though :)

Yeah I know.. I was just playing it just now and it annoyed me too! *lol* Back then I think I primarily focused on the 'dot-matrix' GUI then anything else ;)

where's a good place to get some word lists? including some default ones would be nice. :)

Basically, if you download any book from places like the Gutenberg Project, and you load that into the game, you will have more than plenty of words to play with. The game will filter out any duplicates.

I never intended this to be made public, otherwise I would have paid some more attention to details like this ;)
