Very nice calc84! Project M is somehow getting even better :)  I especially love the animated tiles.

I fixed a bunch of collision detection bugs, added support for collision callbacks, and also added a couple new types of (sprite) objects :D


Edit:
Browsers that support playing GIFs with high framerate recommended (such as Firefox)

darn, really nice stuff! Glad to see some new progress ^^

Suggestion, though: When scrolling either horizontally or vertically, would it be possible to have the grayscale animation stop? Otherwise, it seems pretty flickery when scrolling

Also, what does "collision callback" means?

It means that I have a table of routine, one for each tile. When Mario collides with the tile, the routine is called and it can do stuff :D

And I might try to get the grayscale working properly as well. :P

Edit:
Also, you may have noticed that the bouncing blocks are smoothly animated now, rather than jumping a few pixels. :D This is one of the strengths of my sprite routine.

That looks incredible!  I'm glad progress is being made with this!  ;D

I was wondering: How do you just display the parts of the tiles you want when it scrolls?  I was trying to figure out how to do this in Axe, but I couldn't figure out the right method to use.  How does the great calc84 do it? :D  Thanks!

I don't think I understand your question. You mean how do I do smooth-scrolling?

Kind of.  How do you do the smooth scrolling and then draw the new pixels on one side?  I can't decide how to fill in the new pixels right after the screen is shifted.  (I assume you are using 8*8 tiles, right)  This is what I am trying to figure out.  Does this make better sense?

I redraw the whole thing every frame with a dedicated routine (along with the scrolling background). In Axe, you could probably draw some sprites after you scroll, since they are clipped to the edge of the screen now

Oh, I see!  I don't know what I'll end up doing, but I'm glad to know your method.  Thanks!

Project M looks great! ;D

aaah ok so basically on one certain tile, you could have it rickroll you?

j/k but I really like how fast it runs in overall :)
