Spacegame now has a mouse-based targetting system, and user configurable controls (though right now, that would involve looking up sdl keysyms and manually editing ~/.spacegame). The closest target to the mouse has brackets around it, and you click the right mouse button to target it. Seeker missiles can now be given a target.

One thing I really need to take note of soon is all the places I refer to ships by index number, and make sure that my ship/weapon removal code fixes all those indices.

But it sure is cool to make sweeping changes to gameplay in a couple hours :)

I think I remember Abuse.

Was it that game where you kinda look like an alien.

and you ran pretty fast, side scroller.

and was all dark and gloomy?
