I kinda want to make a series of it, but again, this and Nostalgia have first priority.


Spoiler For Projects:

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...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
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.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

man, I have like almost no story for A:P.....I should get on that. Yours is very well thought out, I like it ;) And a series would be epic. I think that once you get the first one done, the others become easier (like DJ said with Illusiat and stuff) since you can just reuse a lot of code.

I like the battle layout so far as well as the game concept. :)

And yeah pxl-test collision is pretty fast. To open doors or talk to NPCs, you should have an action key, no checking if there's a NPC or something while walking. Hopefully you should be able to get as much speed as possible that way, especially that you're using 4 level grayscale. :)
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

Yep, I planned on 2nd being the action key. I had planned on checking for NPCs after pressing it, but checking for doors or other objects sounds like a great idea.
I've been working on setting up the battle engine, but I think I'm gonna try and finish up the map engine today.
I'm gonna leave the current map onscreen at 8x7 because it's already flickery enough.

Actually, although you can't tell from the screen shot, I used two different ways of getting 4-level grey.
The map uses Nitacku's method, and Sky uses an overwrite method I found on ticalc that works great for smaller sprites, plus it made masking a heck of a lot easier.

This is your signature. I recommend finishing map and battle engine first, but I'm sure you already know that. Good Luck!

I would say get the battle engine done, then the walking engine, but make sure to make the menu as soon as possible too.

Also I see about the grayscale. It seems to work pretty well me thinks. Also I think it's fine if the map isn't full screen, it seems pretty easy to view and you can see your stats. :)

Another thing about the char going out of the map: I think that if when exiting the map you clear that area completly, just clearing the area earlier would prevent you from having to check if the char is drawn outside. It's gonna be cleared so fast that it will hardly be noticeable.

I've fixed that issue by not updating the LCD if he's gonna overwrite the GUI, then I real(0 the screen.
I'm gonna eventually make the GUI a pic or something, so I don't have to constantly re-render it every time I switch screens.

Currently it's rectangles and text.
It wouldn't be smart to make it a tilemap, because xLib tile-mapping uses matrices, which are necessarily large. Celtic does have a string tile-mapping feature, but I could never get it to work.
