Does anyone recall a cowboy game type in on the Amstrad?

What I am remembering is the classic blue background, with blocky cowboys and cactus, it was a 2 player game and when you fired your gun it would shoot off and if it hit the cactus it would change*snip*

Time taken = 486

I've expanded the test so it uses different drivers:

Global width:Int = DesktopWidth()
Global height:Int = DesktopHeight()
Global depth:Int = 32
Global hertz:Int = 60

Hmmm, I'm using a not so shitty Nvidia GTX 1080...

Dan's results are even worse, must be because of a multi monitor setup(?).

Creating ''Graphics'' Slow

26th July 2019

I know you guys have moved on from BlitzMax, but I've been noticing that creating graphics on vanilla BlitzMax is pretty slow these days, maybe it's a Windows 10 thing or a driver thing but on my PC it now takes over 3 seconds to create 1920x1080: *snip*

Jay, give it a go. You grew up in the 80s (I'm pretty sure you're a similar age as me 38) and you like SciFi. I'm sure you will like it.

I haven't watched S3, it'll be a few months before I do as I've got lots of catching up on o*snip*
