That sounds less like development hell and more like a forced hiatus! It's nice that you're still keeping busy by thinking of new ideas, however. Can't wait to see what you'll show us once you're able to continue developing the game. :)

I have acquired an older PC to continue development of ZeC. Unfortunately, it is quite a few years old and can not handle miniSphere. I would really like to continue the development within miniSphere but for the time being this is what I have to program with. Perhaps in time, I will be able to acquire a somewhat newer machine that will be able to handle the installation of miniSphere. Until then, I must continue with Sphere 1.5.

Quick Edit:

While I would prefer to once again be programming with miniSphere, I don't want to sound overly negative about the age of the dev machine (WinXP circa 2006-2007). I am glad to be able to be continuing programming ZeC. It has been on hiatus for quite a while now.  However, now I get to go back to programming that pesky bomb function...

The minimum requirement to run ChakraCore (the JavaScript engine miniSphere uses since 5.0) is Windows 7 SP1 so there's probably no hope of getting miniSphere to run on that machine, unfortunately. :(

Could this older machine perhaps run miniSphere 4.x? that should run on somewhat older machines and whilst no longer supported should be a bit better to work with than Sphere 1.5 I'd think.

@Rhuan I'm not really sure. I haven't tried to install a version of miniSphere on this machine yet. I can attempt an install and see what happens.

Update:

Attempted to install miniSphere 4.5.11 - It would seem that this machine can not handle the installation.

Tried to install miniSphere back to 4.2. Still couldn't get it to run. Sphere 1.5 it is until I can acquire a dev machine that can actually handle newer tech.
