Thread: maybe illigal software

    maybe illigal software

    I was wondering how others felt if they thought they might have illegal software on their computer. Would you delete it?

    What I'm talking about is the desktop sheep that seems to be everywhere on the internet.
    Check out this web site to see what I mean.

    It seems that all the desktop sheep programs on the net are illegal hacked copies.

    I'm interested in everyone's opinion about this.

    Thanks
    Sandy

    My opinion? I'm strictly against illegal usage/copying of software/movies/music. I would delete it right away!

    It was painful, so painful that I almost cried :'( but I deleted the program. It was my favorite but I haven't figured out how to get a legal copy.

    Hi,

    you did the right thing uninstalling it :-\

    But you still have thinBASIC and at least MS Paint, so what is preventing you from creating own sheep simulation or minigame ?

    Thanks! I still feel bad about having to delete it though.

    I can't figure out how they made it move. I've gotten a single bitmap to move across the screen but every time I try to switch bitmaps to make it seem animated I fail! In fact I can't even get my hangman program to switch bitmaps when there is a bad guess.

    I've been looking for something on the net that would explain how to make a desktop pet but so far..... nothing!

    Thanks for letting me know that I did the right thing.

    I'm afraid I haven't gotten to the point where I have a script yet. I'll probably have something this weekend.

    Thank you for your kind offer.
