Horses was inspired by a horse racing program that Robert "Bobby" Zoller, a friend in high school, wrote on a TI-81 graphing calculator. That game used dots to represent the horses as they moved across the screen. Horses for Windows applied that same concept with graphics and added the shared store to make it a strategy game.
- Download Horses for Windows
- Download Horses for Windows, Prom Edition, which is a variant that I wrote for the prom while in high school
- Download CatSetup's required DLL files, if needed. Older versions of CatSetup required bwcc.dll, and the latest version requires ctl3dv2.dll. These go into the windows\system folder, not windows\system32. Windows computers typically already have ctl3dv2.dll installed, which is a Microsoft library, and Wine has a built-in implementation
To facilitate easy cheating, I wrote a saved game editor that enables users to adjust the attributes of their horse as well as the computer's horse, the supply levels at the shared shop, and the odds of winning the next race.
