Project M Reboot
« on: May 11, 2009, 04:19:27 pm »
I decided that Project M's code was getting way too messy and was heading in a direction I didn't want. So, I am starting again from scratch. Well, I actually have the old code on hand in case I want to borrow some stuff from it, plus I still have all of the graphics data.

And starting fresh isn't all bad... it can allow for things like nSpire support, or making it an APP. And yes, I think it should be an APP.

It can also let me do graphics upgrades which I rejected before, like so:


That would be the new tilemapper. Shiny, eh? :D
Just for the record, the screenshot is running at 15MHz.
It goes at about 26 FPS in 6MHz, and 65 FPS in 15MHz. I don't think frame rate will be too much of an issue in this game, anyway.

More updates aren't very likely this week because of finals and junk like that.

Yeah, grayscale is pretty important so the background doesn't intrude on the main tilemap. I've tried it with just black-and-white and it really gets in the way.

Now that you mention it, I didnt even paid attention to the animated tiles, that makes it even more epic :D

Hell. That s*** is amazing.

Almost makes me want to hand over the source for CaDan just to see what you'd do with it.
A Cherry-Flavored Iambian draws near... what do you do? ...

Haha, I think you've got that project covered, Iambian. ;) I probably couldn't do it as well as you, or at least not as incredibly quickly.

By the way, one thing I failed to mention about the new tilemapper is that it now supports heights that aren't powers of 2. :D It'll be much more flexible for people's levels.

Is a level editor still planned when the entire game will be finished? Also, do you plan to add a feathre item? Are warp pipes still gonna be in the game?

Oh, I'm hoping there will be enough room in the APP to incorporate a level editor, possibly with instant testing of levels. ;D Warp pipes are still planned. I don't think I'll have the feather, but I'll have the leaf instead. (Raccoon Mario is win.)

Oh, leaf or feather or cape I don't mind, as long as I can fly :D but it's ok if you don't add it. ^^

Couldn't a level editor be made separately from the app, though? Kinda like MEDIT with Sam Heald/Bill Nagel Super Mario?
