cool ^^

(also if you ever moved to PC programming, especially games, or even ROM hacking, the site here is kinda game-oriented and there are non-calc dev section, so people might be interested. I hardly ever did PC programming, though. The last thing I did was 3 Visual BASIC 6.0 games around 2002-03 and a RPG Maker 2003 game in 2007)

Ha ha, I remember RPG Maker.  ;D  I still have like 3 unfinished RPGs in VX.

I've played around with rom hacking a bit, but I never really got involved in it. I think the only things I've done successfully was hack some the text in Legend of Zelda for the NES and make a level in Super Mario World.

I've already taken a couple classes, mostly in VB.NET and C, but they don't exactly teach you how to make games on those. I do have a few applications from VB.NET like a calculator and text editor, but no games yet. I do remember coding a primitive RPG using the command prompt in C though.
I do sprites and stuff, so yeah.

In my case, the first VB game I made was a game similar to Myst style, where you didn't see your char, just a map where you picked items with drag and drop, but even simpler. Sadly, unless you're a lucky person who managed to find a serial of ANIGIF.OCX online (which is impossible today), you wouldn't be able to play it. That was a school project. Once I was done I made a plane shooting (very simple) in about 20 minutes. The next year I made a game similar to the first one but with tilemapping and top down view with character. It doesn,t work under Windows 7, though, it seems (missing ocx file even if present on the computer). Had I got a computer at home back then to work on the game, it would have featured RPG battles too.

That was back in 2002-03 btw x.x

The 2007 RM2k3 game I finished is available in downloads section but it's a bit simple in terms of features, but it wasn't helped much due to the story it's based on (sequel to it). I worked on another game in 2008 in it but I never finished it. That one had a real time battle system, which was rather buggy x.x

One awesome thing is if someone ported Axe Parser final version to the computer so we can easily port calc games to the computer ;D

All of those were in VB6? Nice. Nowadays with .NET, we get so many fancy features to work with that most of the code will write itself. Not saying that is a bad thing though.

I remember when I was working with VX, I found this forum where they had these 'addons' of sorts that added various functions to enhance the game, and I gt so overwhelmed by integrating all these features into my RPGs that I never got around to working on the story.  :P

Yeah, that would be awesome. Maybe even make color and sound support as well, similar to those color hacks for old gameboy games.

Speaking of sound support, I know that Axe can make sounds, but is it possible to implement it into games yet? I don't think that Axe is as touchy as Omnicalc when it comes to playing sounds or having headphones plugged in, but I've never gotten around to trying it out. I'd love to see it integrated into later versions of Axe so that we can have sounds or even music  :D in Axe games.

We can have sound in Axe games, except only one sound channel at a time and execution is stopped during the entire duration of the sound. Basically games can run much slower (altough much faster than in BASIC)

Yeah, people have made some hacks which color some gameboy games. I don't know which ones were hacked, you might have to look around for them. I remember it best with Metroid II, which actually looks pretty good with it. Basically, Some people create an ips, which is than patched into gameboy rom. After it is patched, it can be run on any emulator just like the normal game.

Here's a screenshot of the game with the color hack.


EDIT: Replaced the link.

Yea, I remember seeing one for Super Mario Land somewhere, but that was quite a while ago. Metroid II actually runs with some color if played on a gameboy color or a super gameboy. Many gameboy games did this with limited pallets when gameboy color first came out in order to maintain backwards compatibility.

Welcome here Magic Banana!  I hope you figure out Axe, but I'm pretty sure it'll be easy for you. :)
