Well, partial success!! It now searches the string and goes to the next line when it sees a "/". Now to make it pause and clear with the "+"...

huh?? I already have one that does that, remember? What I am doing now is having it start were it left off in the string and search for the next "/", and display that line, then go to the next line, until it hits a "+", this way, it will make the display time a hundred times faster, if the person does not wish to wait for the text post itself on the screen. :)smile.gif So if you forget to change the text speed, you can simply hit a button and it will automatically display the lines, instead of the letters one at a time. :)smile.gif

I will endeavor to have that part of the program done sometime today.

 pwnage! :thumbup:google.gif
I'd like to see that at decent speed. :)smile.gif
I tried it with TDCoder, but it always turned out too slow for my taste. Well, I only have a 83+... on an SE or 84 it'd be a lot faster.

Well, the only slowness will be the InString command, and by what I can tell, that is a fairly fast command anyways. :)smile.gif

But yea, it is pretty quick for what I am doing. :)smile.gif

I've been here xlibman, lurking in the online list but not posting.

tifreak, did you do it by making the length argument of the sub() with length-instring(/)? See I no what the formula includes, but I can't tell what it exactly is without 2 or 3 hours guessing oncalc. :lol:bounce2.gif

If you need to get rid of something to fit the actual game, the first thing to X are the text speeds Slow and Medium. Anyone not on Fast is crazy. They can wait to continue and read anyway...
One of these days I'll get a sig I'm really proud of.

Well, the text speeds were set up like that to stay as true to the originals as possible, to prove basic can provide many of the same options that asm games can.

I have an idea on the rest of it, integrating it into the original program, and making things work, I just have to take the time to implement it tonight.

Porn?


No but seriously I wonder if you have a small idea on how many % are done now on Pokepurple? Like, 5%-6%?

Oh, I think it is at 7% completed now.

Last night, I was stuck in the tow trucks, so I didn't get to program... :'(

On the plus side, I believe I have a better system to integrate for detection of next line/pause for the text display system when pressing a key. :)smile.gif

I will try to put this in sometime today.

Ok, I managed to get it to register "+" as a pause, and now I just have to figure out how to make it stop when it reaches the "*". And yes, I know how to do it, I just have to make it do so :Ptongue.gif

It wasn't about speed, it was about size :)smile.gif

Anyways, I got the program to display everything... Now I need to change the while loop to be W=1 or whatever, so I can make sure I can get it to stop without the assistance of the loop that is already in place. Should be cake. ;)wink.gif

K here you go:

Please note 2 things:

There are no errors when being used on-calc.

The speed is fairly smooth on the 83+SE, which is what this game is being built on.
