First off, thank you very much for creating INTYBASIC, it is a great tool for making programming Intellivision not so daunting. It is quite an impressive tool.
I am very new to the language, and I am mainly trying to implement some pieces of things to learn how to do certain game elements. I encountered one that I haven't been able to crack. I was working with the 'landscape' Example program, and I thought it would be an interesting exercise to have a statically placed string at the top that would change with a collision of the sprite with the background. While I have the collision part working, I cannot figure out how to keep a character statically placed. This would be a useful procedure when wanting to display a score at the top or bottom while the game would have a scrolling background. I am sure that I am missing something quite simple, but if someone could point me in the right direction. I would greatly appreciate it.
Obviously (at least to me) putting the character in a BACKTAB card doesn't work. I doubt this needs a MOB to complete, as that would be wasteful. Should I be writing something on the BORDER, I can't figure out how to do that.
Thanks in advance and sorry if this is a stupid question.
