Drawstat Mario sprite moving at 1.5 FPS (pure-BASIC)
« on: October 24, 2011, 04:12:10 pm »
It would be nice if eventually someone made a tutorial on making sprites and pics using Drawstat commands. I just found this on PC website: http://www.planet-casio.com/Fr/programmes/programme1781-1-mario-purobaz-jeu-action-sport.html

The mario sprite manages to move at 1.5 FPS. This is not very fast, but it's a big step foward considering with pixel-on we can only draw 3 pixels per second. O.O

I clocked it at 1.75 FPS, but maybe that's just me :P  But wow! I had no idea that the prizm had that kind of potential for sprites  :o  Hopefully this means a bright future for Casio prizm programming!

The bad part, though, is the 0.3 seconds delay between sprites. As a result filling the entire screen with a tilemap might almost take a minute depending of the sprite size. X.x
