Texan Dealer is an old game by now and so I thought along with the recent remake I would do an 80-column version. The game it's based on, "DrugWars" written by Richard E.Dell in 1984, actually used something like 60 or 80 columns so I adapted my format to suit.
In this zipped attachment is all you need to play, there's the T80XB file from Senior Falcon, needed to play the TEXAN80 game file.
Runs in Extended Basic. In the emulators make sure you're emulating F18A / 80 column hack they are what mine are set to and all is fine.
This is a hard game but it's made easier with the Guide option, use this to check the lowest prices and buy at a low price ,sell at a higher price when you Travel to the next day. You have 31 days to make the most profit.
You travel around the bottom coast of Texas visiting six different areas, buying and selling six different items.
To the left of the screen is the market for buying and to the right hand side of the screen is your stash, or inventory, of items and the amount you paid.
There's a View Stats option to see how well you're doing profit wise and the game keeps a high score.
This is my "beta" release, there will be updates at some other time, maybe put in a gambling game to add more to it so you can bet your money for a big win.
If you come across any errors or bugs please let me know!
Edit: Fixed an error when police arrive,apologies to person who already downloaded broken version!
