CaDanITE
« on: September 04, 2010, 01:36:27 am »
Calculator Danmaku Integrated Test Environment.

An idea for a rather hefty level editor for whenever CaDan will support external levels. With this utility you should be able to:
  • Create, modify, or import stage backgrounds
  • Adjust scroll and graphic loop settings
  • Draw new boss graphics, edit boss properties, and set special attacks
  • Place enemies and assign scripts to them, be it ones you made or those that come with CaDan
  • Write text for character/boss interactions. Great for storybuilding!

A few problems need to be worked out with CaDan before I can write CaDanITE, but it's a serious thought I'm thinking of. I mean, it would be pretty awesome to build your own levels for CaDan right on your calc, then test out those levels from the editor if you have a compatible version of CaDan on-calc.

Still. Just a thought at this stage. With a few sheets of paper serving as notes.
A Cherry-Flavored Iambian draws near... what do you do? ...

I remember you brought this up on IRC one night. Indeed this would rule, providing it's not too hard to use. :D

well i think the whole goal is to make it easy to use because atm making levels and scripts is a real PITA its easier than java to me though so

Yeah I remember you discussed about it on IRC and it seemed rather hectic x.x

well its very heavy on the math as all the bullets movements are caculated via math using 1 or more of 4 registers thus its hard to manipulate them all and have multiple patters at once

X.x

yeah my hope for the editor is that it will have some ways to generate some patterns using some equations or filling a form. But coding such thing may be kinda hard. Good luck Iambian!

i think that may be the plan or at least have pre-entered patterns that you can slightly modify speed(i think) angle rotation ect.

atm to make a bullet move around in circle motion like in this pattern



is
Boss0EvE0:
 cd.shoot(r1)
 cd.add(r1,60)
 cd.shoot(r1)
 cd.add(r1,60)
 cd.shoot(r1)
 cd.pause
 cd.goto(Boss0EvE0)

and atm i don't even remember how that works X.x

yeah funny thing is its not even what i wanted to happen its just how it came out X.x

and its looks confusing but it gets easy once you learn the scriptin engine :/

the hard part is that you only have r1-r4 to work with

thats it X.x

here is a script iambian made



this one is in proper format though it calls teh end of the boss and every thing not just the script bullet pattern it self

Edit: actually i think this one has all the levels of the boss in it i mean liek easy medium hard lunatic i forget X.x

Code: [Select]
Boss0EvE:
 cd.startup(300,30)
 cd.call(0,Boss0Flyin)
 cd.ld(r3,32)
 cd.jid(Boss0EvE1)
Boss0EvE0:
 cd.track(r2)
 cd.add(r2,24)
 cd.ld(r1,(256-(24+28))/2)
Boss0EvE0L0:
 cd.shoot(r2)
 cd.add(r2,2)
 cd.djnz(r1,Boss0EvE0L0)
 cd.ld(r1,10)
 cd.track(r2)
 cd.add(r2,50)
Boss0EvE0L1:
 cd.shoot(r2)
 cd.add(r2,24)
 cd.shoot(r2)
 cd.add(r2,-28)
 cd.pause
 cd.pause
 cd.djnz(r1,Boss0EvE0L1)
 cd.ld(r1,10)
Boss0EvE0L2:
 cd.shoot(r2)
 cd.add(r2,28)
 cd.shoot(r2)
 cd.add(r2,-24)
 cd.pause
 cd.pause
 cd.ld(r3,32)
 cd.djnz(r1,Boss0EvE0L2)
Boss0EvE0L3:
 cd.shoot(r1)
 cd.add(r1,60)
 cd.shoot(r1)
 cd.add(r1,60)
 cd.shoot(r1)
 cd.pause
 cd.add(r3,-1)
 cd.djnz(r3,Boss0EvE0L3)
 cd.goto(Boss0EvE0)
Boss0EvE1:
 cd.call(0,NormalExplosion)
 cd.callspell(Boss0EvESp1)

I see. Well at least it's smaller than I thought, though. I was certain it would be like 100-200 lines of code or something per level, since it's in ASM x.x

no thats the nice thing all the bullet scripts are written in a scripting system iambian wrote for it i mean i can make patterns in pure asm if i so choose but its not really worth it ^_^

the system isn't that hard actually its just gets tricky with the small amount of variables :/

Some code has been laid down but it still needs some work. Don't expect this thing to be a fancy-pantsy editor. It wont' be graphically impressive, but I intend on having it just do its job. When I get something that *can* be edited down, I'll start working on something to allow CaDan to accept these levels.
