Programming Ideas
« on: November 04, 2014, 07:13:01 pm »
OK, many people, including myself, are at a loss of what to program. It's quite a common thing after all.
I think we should dedicate this topic to ideas of what to program, and a difficulty level, if you have one in mind.

Start listing ideas please!  :w00t:

Ok here:

A 8x8 map (or 16x16).
Each object is indexed by 2 bytes. byte 1: Object identifier. Byte 2 x/y coordinate.
Whenever you walk into a wall (not stairs) (use pixel checking not object for reason of stairs) rotate the map 90* in that direction.  Your goal is to make it out of the maze.

Heya and welcome here. By the way, if you need more ideas, there is already another topic about project ideas located here. ;)

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

Ok! Thanks! I will eventually try the maze, but as of now, I'm working on a sprite editor on calc. It's kinda cool, and I think it will be useful.  :thumbsup:

Heya and welcome to the forums. It would be better for everyone if you used normal text though. ;)

Cool! Are you planning on only 8x8 sprites or bigger sizes too? Grayscale?

First, notice I am using the advice and using normal text  :angel:
Also, I don't know how to do grayscale, so it will be only in solid pixels right now. I'm hoping I'll get back to making it soon, because I don't know where to go from where I am, so I just recently made an American flag, in honor of Veterans Day,  with "REMEMBER" on it in mock grayscale.  :hyper:

Oops, sorry, I forgot to say... I'm only doing 8x8 sprites. I'm not a great Axe programmer yet.  :(

Edit(Eeems): Merged double post, formatting fix.

A couple of things:
  • Instead of "double posting" (posting twice in a row in a single topic), use the "modify" button to edit your previous post
  • When replying to quotes, don't put your reply in quotes:
ex:

  • Try to avoid repeated use of  :hyper: and  *.* as they are capable of burning your eyes out

That sounds cool  :)  let us know if you need help with anything. I tried making a sprite editor a while ago and struggled at first with grayscale too.

Ok, thanks! Is there some programming idea y'all have that will test my programming skills, but isn't too hard?
For example: I can do sprites, but not grayscale. I can do getkey, but not trajectory.
Stuff like that.

Thanks in advance!  :D And I won't use the hyper and * . * face.  ;)

Try and make map where the character can move left right and  jump?

Alright, thanks. I will try this. This is about my level.  ;D



Ok, y'all, so I'm gonna try to program a super smash bros brawl type game. I think this would be a good program that will stretch my programming capabilities, and be a fun, map type game to make.  :thumbsup:

uhhhhhh.... slow down a bit. You aren't ready for that yet. One of our most competent coders, Hayleia, is currently writing smash for 84+ and he's already busy tackling certain things. If you really want, go try it, but I'd say try to make a simple platformer first.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

Ok, thank you for the advice, but I think I will still try to do it. I have a friend who also is very skilled in programming, so I can ask him, and y'all, questions about it.

I'm not trying to do all the graphics involved in it, in fact, it will be quite basic. Maybe even linked calculator play if I can. :)

Thank you however for informing me.

If you really want a map game that's still easy enough to make, you should consider a simple Tunnel game and work up from there. If not, best of luck with Smash.
