Yeah a video (or another idea is a calcapture of the emulator (Calcapture can be found in Omni archives in the RPG section) then apply motion blur effect in VirtualDub then compress video with Movie Maker or something)

Also for your sprites you should use the pixel art sub-forum, as more people might be able to help you.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Here's a little screenie using turiqwalrus's level he made me.
Sorry the video is so messed up, but the capturing program I use doesn't work to well for this game, so a lot of times things are black or darker than they look on the actual NXT.

You used VirtualDub, right? For some reasons there are gray parts that sometimes turn black or ends up missing or maybe it's my browser's fault ???

i seem to get a rough idea of how it looks like, though. I like the ground tiles and platforms so far. By the way I see you got slopes. Were they hard to code? I heard they were for many people. Also the jumping seems nice so far.

Could you send me the video file before you added motion blur by the way (Mediafire) so I can see if I can attempt at converting it again without the glitches?

No, that is not your browser's fault. :P
It's because the capture program doesn't respond to when the display refreshing on the actual NXT. So the capture program shows stuff that is not seen on the actual NXT.
Can I post the gif here?

EDIT: And also I don't think moving platforms are shown in that video. I need a good level for moving platforms, because I stink at making levels. :P

EDIT2: And DJ_O, all I had to do for slopes was check pixel to the left and up 1 pixel was on/off (and if the pixel to the direct left was on). If it was off, then the player could move up.

Oh right, it captures directly from the device. This reminds me an issue the Casio screen receiver got, where it doesn't capture while most programs are running. The 83+ doesn't even have a capture program to capture from the device. <_<

You may post the gif, but if it's larger than 1 MB you should maybe put it on http://img.removedfromgame.com and post a link to it without img tags, so the page doesn't take too long to load.

Anyway I like how the game looks like so far. There were some parts that reminded me of Metroid, for some reasons.

Aaah ok thanks for the file, so I guess it's definitively because on some frames some parts are not captured at all. I wonder why the gray checkerboards sometimes turn black, though? ???


The cool thing though is that we have a good idea of how it looks like, plus grayscale always look better on-calc/devices than screenshots other than WabbitEmu, anyway.

Yeah, it turns black because a picture with black is displayed, but on the NXT it is not seen, which is good, but it shows up on the capture program. :(

So, any ideas, now that you see a screenie?
Also, any ideas for levels?
