This time around, I got bullet tracking working. Couple with the fact that the angle values are interpolated to give a better shot AND that I've increased the number of angles in a circle to 256, these things are deadly-accurate. Long gone are the days where you can find a safe spot by taking advantage of the system's inaccuracies.

Even the non-interpolated version (which will appear in bullet engine as a bullet script) is fairly accurate. You don't want to be messing with this stuff!

O.O Wow... this screenie makes me afraid. Be afraid... very afraid. >:D

Smallish update: I got enemies to put out an explosion animation. I haven't gotten it to clip yet, but that's not going to be much of a problem since killing enemies while they're still outside the screen's edge is unlikely. Speaking of killing enemies while they're still clipping, I haven't exactly tested out the collision detection scheme to see if it'll handle negative coordinates. I must investigate this.

Also, someone has suggested that I should make the explosion 16x16 instead of 8x8 to make it more dramatic. Others have commented that it should be like this, so I may go ahead and write some general purpose 8x*y big sprite routine that supports clipping and use that routine instead. I was originally going to put that routine in so I can have more flexible stage introduction graphics but I can see its use elsewhere. Maybe an actual bigger boss sprite? I wouldn't count on it but the possibilities are still there.

Next on the task list is to enable some form of background rendering and perhaps put in a tilemapper for additional advanced stage backgrounds and the like. It would be awesome, that's for sure. But what really needs to be done is getting the resource table structure fully defined and ready to go. That part will pretty much allow me to dynamically load script and stage data to extend the stage beyond what is immediately loaded into memory. Very important.

Anyway, here's a screenshot demonstrating what I have of the explosion effect. Coding it was easy. Debugging it was not.

So in hcwp last night iambian taught me how to use the sin cosine tables

well i think they work but i messed up my logic for shooting bullets so we got this instead




(NOTE this is not a real script :P though it would kill everything pretty nicely >.> <.<)

All those bullets that you see were coming from just the player. Enemies have their own bullet table.

But that's not the point of this post. The point is that I've got dragon fire going down. Since Geekboy had so many problems, I decided to take a crack at it, and lemmie tell you. It wasn't easy (and it still isn't perfect since it doesn't clip on the left/right sides).

Here's a screenshot of the preliminary version of it.
