Hi Griz, I really didnt mean its crap I just meant as in saying same old 
"stuff" :-)

Ports of the old programs to take advantage of the better coco hardware 
today would be excellent.
I'm in the same boat, above my capability. (for now)

Tonight I started laying out a map for a graphical adventure, and will hand 
draw the art in a drawing program I made myself a long time ago. You can see 
examples of it in my game Dragon Castles, on my web page. All I can do is 
basic, so thats what I'll do! :-)
