How do you have it on the computer’s display for the player (like the computer do)? How do you have it displayed on the computer’s screen on the other person’s screen? How do you have the player know about your trick on the other person’s screen? How do you have the trick’s information printed in its most readable manner on another player’s screen? How does your trick work?
Asking the players to look at the same trick on the computer’s screen is a common trick. It is also a trick that does not give a player that information on a screen. That is, a player can see only the trick and not the information on the screen.
If the goal of this trick is to have the same information being shown on the screen as the game is playing on the computer’s screen, then it does not work with a computer that is not connected to the internet. In fact, it simply creates an inconvenience for the players. A lot of the time it causes the game to slow down.
The trick is often done, not accidentally, and sometimes it takes a player a very long while to spot the trick on the computer screen. They think they get the info before they actually get the info. However, there are multiple players. If the trick is done with all players looking at the same trick on the computer, they could possibly have missed the trick on the other player’s screen by the time they noticed it. Since you can’t really go “off line” and be off the internet with your tricks while on a game, you cannot use this trick if you are connected to the internet.
When done off-line, you have to go back to the main game to get more time and the computer can only do it so many times before the game’s “mainframe” fails. That means you still have to do all your trick and info displays before the game is over.
If you have a video game console (such as the NES or Nintendo 64, and you are connected to the internet), you can still do this trick because you can change the color settings of the screen.
You are able to make the trick on an NES or Genesis by playing a “game” with the TV tuned to the same color settings. To do so is simple. In order to make the trick, you first have to make your screen a different color to use as the computer’s display. You then play a computer game that makes your screen look more like those of the computer
