Hi RL, I hate being a pest, but are you still firm on your decision not to make it a pick 6 version? As for QP's I have used them only when I have not had time to go over my numbers.
For now I have to say yes, I would like to add all the state P-5 and P-6 games but it takes quite a lot of work to do.
First I have to build all the databases then provide links then keep all the databases updated. It also means a bunch
of work when a upgrade is made to the program in that I have to do it for each game. I have to pay for bandwith and
that would also be another out of pocket expense. If I ever decide to do this I would have to charge some fee and
that is not something I don't want to do. When you sell something you also have to support it and that would take even
more of my time. LP is the perfect place to share ideas and custom programs but when if comes to selling a product it's
not the place. Before I could shell out the cash to do all this I would need to know how many would be willing to pay
for a copy. Only around 650 people have downloaded the free BG full version which does not show enough support to
make it worth my time and effort. This software was not intended as a commerical product and before I would release
it I would most likely rewrite in in a more modern language. When I wrote this I wanted to show some of the capabilities
of the QB64 project. The entire program is written in QB64 except for the DMP quick view which is coded in VB8 or VB10,
I don't remember which I used but I could of coded it in QB64. I would also need a website for download and support
and a number of other things which all cost money. I think I have provided a good peice of software here and included the
games that I though would reach the most people with miminum resources and time. LP is a great place for people who
love to play the lottery and share ideas.
Thanks very much for your interest and hope you understand.
