Sorry - just thought I'd beat the senseless Palm critics to that one! Although, they invariably know the name of the Palm exec/employee responsible for every little Palm fault/missing feature!
Sadly I don't know the names of many Palm employees - perhaps because, like many other happy Palm OS users, I HAVE A LIFE!
It is nice to see something like this come out on Palm OS first - then be ported to other handheld platforms. I am first to admit an overall cooling down within the Palm software world, in terms of new releases, so this title is excellent news at an important time.
But now that you've done the damage, has it occured to you that the main reason this software is coming out now, at the sunset of POS, is because it had been worked on for 3+ years already?
The real question is, will some-one start writing such software today?
It's happening all the time. We're just starting a new Palm OS project for a client this week.David BeersPikesoft Mobile ComputingSoftware Everywhere blogwww.pikesoft.com/blog
If a product never actually makes any money for years, and only exists becuase constant injections of cash, lingering on like an accident victim on life-support, can it really be considered to be a safe environment for investment? I don't think so. :)
Look for a wince replacement within the next 12-18 months. It will be an XP Mobile derivative and break all binary compatability with wince. You heard it hear first. :)------"People who like M$ products tend to be insecure crowd-following newbies lacking in experience and imagination."
Less risk for my company, true. My point was that when it comes to custom vertical apps in the business world there are plenty of companies who look at the great user acceptance and rich, intuitive UI of the Treo 650 versus the WM or RIM competition rather than worrying about stuff like Cobalt being MIA or Sony exiting the PDA market. If they're planning to deploy a fleet of Treos, which are the biggest selling smartphone in the US market, what do they care how many other Palm OS licensees or devices there are out there?
I expect that there is a growing sense of risk in investing in Palm OS, thanks in large part to the announcement of the WM Treo, but I'm hardly seeing a stampede. At most what we see are customers who want their software to be written cross-platform (using something like SuperWaba) so that if they need to switch to WM at some time in the future they won't incur the cost of a difficult port.David BeersPikesoft Mobile ComputingSoftware Everywhere blogwww.pikesoft.com/blog
Accepted. Palm, especially the Treo, is obviously still large in the USA.
BTW: D.O., you know what.

I'll have mine without graphics.
But, this looks pretty cool, and I just may get one for my Zodiac...
Scrollback, auto-mapping (to some extent), save/load etc are present. Tap on screen to pick words or get context menus etc etc.
But buy Zane's game; its clearly one of the best on the platform, especially if you're a fan of Diablo or Dark Alliance (Baldurs Gate) type games. :)

the secret to enjoying your job is to have a hobby that's even worse
My PDAs: Visor --> Visor Neo (blue) --> Zire 71 --> Tungsten T3 (with 4 of 6 screws still remaining) ~?~> zodiac 2?
Anyway, great game! It's more prettier than Ancient Evil!
In RPGs its the gameplay that matters, not the graphics..So for all the moaners posting here I go to say one thing: go play tomb raider on a CE device, cause this was cleary NOT made for you...---========---IIIxe -> TT
