I'm glad you are recovering well ranman :)
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

So here is a screenie of a Jumpman level. Unfortunately if I want to exactly replicate the original Jumpman levels while maintaining the physics of the game, I would need to pan the screen by 30 pixels. I really don't like scrolling the screen with this type of platform arcade game. So, I will create slightly modified versions of the original levels (or completely new levels) compensating for the absence of the 30 vertical pixels.

Looks great Ranman...I wouldnt like scrolling either, takes away from the arcade feel.

Here is a slightly modified version of the above level... faithfully redesigned to support the shorter height of the TI-89 screen.

Been working on Jumpman's interaction with the girders, ladders, ropes, and chains as well as the falling, bouncing, and death sequence.

Here is a screenie...



What do y'all think? Still needs a bit of perfecting... but it's getting close. :)


Edit: tifreak asked about the flickering... I'm being a lazy coder right now. I am clearing and redrawing the screen every frame -- which slows everything down quite a bit. I'll be working on correcting that soon.

Edit #2: In fact... I think i'll go ahead and fix that tonight before I go any further.

Wow I love when the character falls. Nice job!

Btw the flickering seems to happen in almost every 68K screenshots I see on ticalc.org.

Thanks for all of the responses to Jumpman. :)

Here is some more eye candy...



Note: This level will eventually have magically appearing girders and ladders upon the collection of specific bombs.

Awesome! I wonder if like the Donkey Kong Jr game (well, I think it was that game) if the platforms will get tilted by themselves during certain levels?
