Hi all,

I'm mostly done with my pet project named "Anchors Aweigh!". It will be submitted to the MSX-DEV contest, and is available at:
http://github.com/MartinezTorres/anchors_aweigh

Code is, of course, horrible. But it was an interesting learning experience.

There is, however, something I'd like to ask to a native Dutch speaker. The game supports 4 languages, but I did the Dutch versions of the text mainly through Google Translate, so they might not look very natural. Also, I could not find a compact enough way to translate one of the passages, so I am still missing that one translation. If a native Dutch speaker can help me translate the following passage, I'd be really appreciate it!
"GAMEPLAY:\n"
"You can mark cells as water, ship\n"
"part, or leave them empty.\n"
"For a ship to take form, you need to\n"
"mark the cells and also the water \n"
"around it.\n"
"Once all row and column numbers are\n"
"green, and the ship left count at\n"
"the bottom row is all zeros, the armada\n"
"will be automatically destroyed.\n"
"You can undo, reset the board, or if\n"
"you find no solution, surrender.\n"

Thanks!

Speelwijze:

Je kunt cellen markeren als water of als onderdeel van een schip, of leeg laten.

Om een schip te maken moet je cellen als zodanig markeren, en ook het water er omheen.

Zodra de nummers van de rijen en kolommen allemaal groen zijn en de teller op de onderste rij die het aantal overgebleven schepen aangeeft op nul staat, zal de invasievloot automatisch vernietigd worden.

Het is mogelijk om een zet terug te nemen, het bord te resetten en ook, als je geen oplossing kunt vinden, je over te geven.

Thanks a lot Manuel for the translation! I'm writing it into the game as of now.

I realized that I still don't have joystick support, so you can't play on mobile phones. I'll try to add joystick support today, but I may not reach it in time Tongue
