I've added an in-game level editor to Gold Runner, to make design a bit easier:

It's quite useful now- you can jump into a level you're making, then try it out, if it doesn't work go back and make more changes. The interface works really nicely and encourages iterative development.

A few bugs have appeared I'm in the process of ironing out.

This has been a lot of fun, and though it's yet to receive much comment I've especially enjoyed playing around with the AI and pushing the limits of their particular method, so I put up a video on my channel demonstrating that stuff. I've enjoyed making this game and I hope you guys have enjoyed playing it :)

Edit: The video just went live, so you can check it out here if yuo like:

That made my day :D

I've made one last change to the executable. I found this website this afternoon and quickly made a converter to change those files into ones compatible with my own rendition. Unfortunately most of the links are broken, but I was able to get the first 17 levels of both the original and championship edition of Lode Runner, and will add the rest if/when I can track them down. In total now, the game has about 45 levels, which is pretty good.

The size for those levels was actually 28x16, compared to my 49x18 so I've had to scale them to fit the screen, but nevertheless they look good and play very well:

That's it I think. I've had a lot of fun making this but I've added all the features I think it needs and a lot of levels. If you guys want to make more send them to me and I'll post them but I think I'm done with this one.

It was a lot of fun to make, and I think the end product is really good :) Thanks for reading!

Wow, really cool nitro! Amazing fun - even if I do suck at it :P

I love the idea behind finding an old game for a (compared to today's standards) simple old console/system, and turning it into something for ComputerCraft - it works really well. I love how you've emulated the original levels from the game. :)

I logged in for the first time in almost a year to say:

I found a CC floppy in a mine shaft chest cart with this on it, Googled it, and now I'm logging in to say this is awesome. :D

I don't think you'll get any help from NF anytime soon, seems he's not been browsing the forums in a while :P
But when viewing that line in the code it seems to error when you're browsing the levels or something right?

I don't think this is a code error. The line you quoted in my copy of the source doesn't have the string goldrunner anywhere. Is this being run from a script or are you just typing GoldRunner into the shell and getting this problem?

I still pop by from time to time, just don't have much to contribute to the community these days.
