Awesome! I can't wait for screenies :D

Will map layout be similar to Starcraft/Diablo games or will it be more like other calc RPGs?

Kind of both.  It's like S.A.D.--there are some flat tiles and some 3d-ish tiles

Yeah I saw last night. Pretty nice. I wondered about layout since Starcraft is more isometric in general, but since correlation uses fonts based on TI ASCII characters, with isometric tiles you would run out of tile slots extremly fast and fonts would be large.

Exactly.  Isometric can be done, but it does take more space.

By request of graphmastur, I've released an on-calc pixel art font editor for Correlation.  Unfortunately, it's gotten so big that it's an application.  However, I've tested it, and it should contain no bugs.

Sweet :D Isometric with this would be interesting, but tricky because of all the offset methinks o.O

Sweet, thanks! This will make it easier to make fonts and edit them on calc.

I made a replacement for the function sub( to help with long strings.  Just replace sub( with abs(.

For a small string, the speed difference between abs( and sub( is almost unnoticeable.  However, if you have the following code for a 2000 char string:

For(A,1,1000
sub(Str0,1000,1
End

1 Minute, 25 seconds

With Correlation:

For(A,1,1000
abs(Str0,1000,1
End

15 seconds

It works for 2 byte tokens too right?  This is becoming even more awesome! :D Out of curiosity, why did you not simply override the Sub() command?

No it doesn't, sorry.  It's meant for strings that are used for displaying custom fonts, and those strings only use 1-byte tokens.  That's why the routine is so fast

But wouldn't correlation not be allowed since its a pure Basic contest?  And Hot_Dog ah i see, that makes sense :)
