Re: NörmalTyping lib

i tested and unicode gives the unicode number not character. ie 97 for a, 98 for b and 13 for the return key. I find if (key >= 'a' and key <= 'z') more readable than if (unicode>= 97 and unicode <= 122) So, shift is in there, special characters, etc. Yup, thats the problem ;) filtering what numbers...

The long list of keys at the top does not seem like good style. misspelling "currentstring" repeatedly Oh yes, i hate names like that :? I cooke...

Re: Tilt - physics puzzler (r9)

this is great. Never seen this kind of gameplay before. Is there no "Level Finished!" message yet or did I miss something? I transported the white ball into the green rectangle.
