Found this game on a now vanished website

It's a clone of Traderwars but can be played for 1 or 4 players. You go around buying stock for 200 moves or so it says on the information window. I didn't write this and figured why not post it here.

So, why didn't you post it here?

You didn't post it here. Did you send it to the \nul\bin

So the history of this game and how I found it. Is that my uncle was a huge Tradewars fan. He had a BBS on his ibm and would do a lot. So with that being said he gave me a bunch of old notebooks and floppies and write this in ibm basic. Here's a photo of one of his old rigs with his game running on it. He told me he had it posted on other BBSes and whatnot. Like I said before, I didn't write this and felt like sharing it with you guys. So I hope you enjoy it. Now the source code is all over the place and I'm going to try and post it as well. I'm not educated with ibm basic but I'll give her a try and work for an update. Now, I'm not going to release the code as it's not mine but will be attempting and I do mean attempting. Be patient and please notfight or cause drama or I'll be outta here. I'm just trying to share my uncles work. So with that said. Enjoy.

Taking a few hours to relax and then getting back into it. I've been studying the ibm basic manual i was sent and am now drinking my coffee. Expect an updated version near the end of the week. I'll keep you all posted. Thanks for the love and support.
