    Why on earth would anyone like to make a language containing all languages? First it would be x^n times more work to put it all together, not only incorporating one language but many.
    Second: Incompatibility. Most languages have different bases (structures) so they wouldn't work well together.
    Third: All languages have their ups and downs, so the final product wouldn't be stronger than its weakest links. Since all languages have their downsides, the result would be one big slow weakling.

    It would be easier to make a new language from the ground up containing all the nice stuff you want in it.

    Magos:
    You understood a poor lonely teen.

    Thats what i meant. Redeclare everything from the ground up. And in doing so, i master every language ever made. Time for binary coding.

    0011001
    0100001
    1000000
    0111010
    0001110
    0000011

    HEHE, Metroid one for the nes. Well, part of it. I thijk thats the ice beam. But im not sure.

    The OS's problem:

    I SAID CURRENTLY. We are working on taking it from OW (Over windows), to SA(Stand alone). Even if we have to recode it into a DOS APP. C++. Im sure (COM)Buster could learn C++.

    That's cool, BD, but set your sights somewhere a little more realistic. Coding an OS is not the way to learn programming. If you finish it, it'll be a big, unoptimized, POS...

    Im not the programmer of MOS at all. I coded 0% of it. I just tested it. Even the testing was poor, mainly because everything's in dutch, and i can't read dutch. I can speak and read some german, but thats not dutch.Maybe our new C++ programmer can help make it in C++.I can create a text OS in DOS, once i learn EXE running within a program(HINT HINT).
    I would use that to run (OW) my text games. MAn, you guys GOTTA test this thing out. See, i put in this cammand to draw your mech in ASCII art. If you lose your limbs, they will not appear on the drawing. It is SO cool!

    Anyway, i can program binary for samus's jumping:

    001101
    110001
    000111
    101011
    110010
    000100
    010010
    000000
    000010
    111100

    I think thats binary coding. Im not sure whatcha call it.
    How about a new word:

    zerosnones

    LOL.

    Not to burst your bubble or anything, but an OS is sooo much more than a program selector, which you're describing.

    And what's that about Metroid? Is that an attempt for a bitmap?

    Yea, yea, i know. But hey, it can be a OS Emulator, kinda.

    Okay, okay, i can use it for a PART of an OS. That better?

    Metroid:

    That coding is the area in the game used for the gravity. Jump up, fall. Its the fall part, i believe.

    They used to have it on a site called www.retrogamingcode.com
    but i don't think it exists anymore.

    perhaps you should look up what binary means before thinking that a few binary numbers represent a physics engine....
