Old Temper (source)
Unfortunately, when I switched to Windows XP, I was unable to continue my work on this game because the Future.Lib, the QBasic and the XP itself are not completely compatibile. You can check out the progres of the New Temper on the other page (made using pure QBasic).
You can download the whole old temper project here. Freeware.
Comments and suggestions are most welcomed.
