Basically,

c1-->
CODE
ec1If sub(Str1,T-1,1)n="X"c2
ec2

I dont want to have to use that a bunch, for each character, as it will bloat the code...

is it for collision detection in map engine?
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

Well, to provide variety, I have to have different characters... And I am sure as hell not using matrices...

I am just gonna have to play around with it, see what I come up with...

It is always fun trying different things to see what works the best -- size or speed or a compromise.

Yeah, I have a couple ideas to play around with, though I have no idea when I will get to try them...

ok, i just thought of another solution. Ur maps will be in blocks right? u can have each block is a region, for instnace, veridian forest is a forest region, and only 2 or three chars represent walls in it. Thus, each region will have its own nonwalkable tiles :)smile.gif u can use maybe resource to copy the required collusion detecter into a temp prgm, then run that prgm from the walking prgm. hope this helps :Dbiggrin.gif

I might do something to that effect... Just without Resource for now...

As some of you know, resource was added; found a good, fast way for hit detection; and added a text displaying routine.

Right now, I am working on adding text to the intro. I have decided that the intro will not be the exact same, because I always thought the way you had to decide your name was kinda... bad. :Dbiggrin.gif And I think I will leave out the whole special name thing, since that will add additional files, etc, and I am trying to make this game like the original, only as small as possible on calc.

If anyone thinks that I should still have it select from a list, or have it typed in, I will consider it.

I got the box clearing routine done fairly quickly, and  the total size of my Text displayer program is 181 bytes. Not bad, eh?

Once I get the intro complete, add an in-game menu, and make it to where some of the buildings are accesible, I will upload a new version, this time with a readme that makes some sense. :)smile.gif (I think I will keep the humur in there though:

:Dbiggrin.gif

I also need to add credits to the readme, so I don't forget people who helped with this game. :)smile.gif

And as it stands, I am unsure what I will do about a 16x16 sprite routine. Not knocking Kerm, but I very seriously doubt he will be able to make the routine for me. :(sad.gif I might ask around maxcoderz to see if someone would be willing to make such a program... (It couldn't be very hard...)

More on progress as I accomplish it... :)smile.gif

@tifreak8x - hehe, in my tutorial I gave you it has the best method of Hit Detection ever  put all non-solids in a string! (or better yet, have a 2nd string of numbers (single digit) that decide wether to show your character or not, and wether it's solid or not (-54125+3)

ahh, well anyways the better one is having 2 strings (say... "XXOOOXX" in Str1 and "1101011" in Str2 and looking at Str2 not Str1 to see of the wall is solid or not

Yeah, I understand the concept. :)smile.gif It is like using a matrix, but you are using a string. In this case, you can allow for hidden wall tiles, that don't look any different from the other ones. :)smile.gif

As far as I know, Pokemon didn't have that kind of system...
