i havent had any trouble with string tilemaps(especially when dealing with a single, static tilemap). if you need a lot of free ram, though, i can see how that would be an issue.

Well the string tilemapper deals with tokenized binary, and until recently, I had no idea what was going on with that.
Perhaps I'll take another look at that function...

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Celtic tilemapping used hex, right?

i rather like the mega boss. his sprite seems a bit on the dark side, but i suppose that is appropriate.

Thanks. I'm thinking of maybe adding an aura or something to give him a more god-like feel, though.

Edit: How's this look?

Wow I wonder how hard it is to edit tilemaps then... I guess if I return to BASIC I'll stick to matrices X.x

Btw nice images, same for the one in the post after that quoted one. :)

Thanks. I actually ripped all of them (except Discord) from the same game I ripped all Nostalgia's enemies from. I actually ripped the tiles I'm using for this from that game too.

This is looking great!  Are you going to just have two regular enemies though, because that seems too few if you have four bosses. ;)

Yeah I think it might be a good idea to maybe have some more, unless the RPG is really short. Unless he's planning to have enemies become stronger as you progress but remain the same type?

^This.
The enemies will grow stronger, but remain the same type.
This is because:
1) I have to crank this out fast.
2) Much simpler to code and much less data.

Ah ok, so basically enemies will kinda be like Final Fantasy VIII and a bit like Illusiat 1 and 2 originals. In the original two Illusiat games, enemies strength increased as you progressed. (although it was poorly balanced in my case)

In Illusiat 12, there are only 10 enemy types,  but you encouter the same type later in the game at a different level most of the time and you don't encounter every kind of enemy in all areas.

Illusiat 11 did this too, right?

Sounds good, Finale.  How's it progressing?  I believe your time is halfway up. ^-^
