Good idea.

In the readme I put the following to be a way around that issue. Didn't realize the trim issue not working outside of dosbox until tonight though.

"Extract files to your Qbasic directory. Make sure that the the "levels" folder is off the
that main folder otherwise the game will be unable to find the levels."

Changing the directory automatically is a good idea.

Tomorrow I'll post an updated version with some of the more annoying fixes fixed. (Even though it looks like you've found your way around them already :) )

Thanks for giving it a go!

                If you add a _FULLSCREEN directive, the output will be full screen. I don't think you can leave it in non QB64 code, unfortunately.

                  Actually, I was surprised that qb 4.5 didn't even show the line with _FULLSCREEN on it. I had to open it up in Notepad to make sure it was actually there. I wonder if there's something in the old... more
