Hello!
This Forum is very active, and if you need help: just ask. But it is recommended to try on your own first, and search the forum for solutions. The peoples around here will not do all the work for you, but will help you if you get stuck. act like a grown up, help others and state clearly what you need.

@duncanshin there are a lot of old time geezers around here full of knowledge & tales of how it was better in the old days, if you butter them up the right way and put some effort into your posts when asking for help then help with appear as if by magic. Post code when even possible pseudo or real and used lots of emoji's are my top tips.

Nononono, kids these days have it much better. When I was a wee lad, we had to code in assembler if wanting to do anything more complex than 'Hello World'. We had no IDEs or fancy debuggers. Memory was measured in kilobytes, and you'd be lucky to have double-digits of them. Think spinning hard-disks are slow? Try loading and saving using audio-casette tape!!! Also, we walked to school. Uphill. Both ways!

Yea, I wrote my first program on a ZX Spectrum with code from a geek magazine at the age of 9, a blue square that was chased by a red square, it was no comprehensible language just a series of numbers and symbols it took ages, with tools like AppGameKit I can write a full on physics game in the same time, what I'd give to be 9 again!
