That said, the code is an incredible mess. It's no wonder bugs happened with code that was so messy. I think the original author (hofmeier, much respect) was/is a brilliant designer but very inexperienced in quality coding and software construction. If the code is cleaned up to be more according to modern standards and "clean code" in general, I think there would be a much better possibility of fixing the bugs and making it playable.
If you are interested, there are notes in the source code and readme with some of the direction I was trying to take with it.
right at the start i am told to pick up newspapers, did that. then i am told to raise price, did that, and raised to 50 cent. get the dialogue again, ok, raised again to 55 cent, get the dialogue again, but when i go to menu, newspapers are gone and i cannot raise them. error ? i cannot pickup new newspapers on tuesday because he wants to sleep, but i cannot sleep anywhere, no option in the menu, cannot enter the newspaper stand to sleep there, and cannot enter any other buldings. game keeps telling me i should raise the price, but there is no object in the menu to raise the price, because i need the newspapers from tuesday, but can't pick them up because he wants to sleep. really getting on my nerves.. no way to play on. tried for 20 minutes now. BUGGY!
