Ooh that looks even better now. I wonder if you could make the enemy flash like in the original (black layer xored) before he attacks so we know it's attacking?

Also I like the battle transition. I wonder if it would be possible in Axe to achieve the same as in the original? I have been wondering that too for xLIBC on the CSE because there seems to be no way it could be piossible on that calc lol if someone or myself did it. :P

Not sure. But why don't you use new attack animations? I can design them for you :)

I already suck at animations as it is :P
And getting the enemy to blink is no problem - i already programmed me a blinking function to let a certain area on the screen blink a certain amount of times :P

I read somewhere in the topic that you used to have an 8*9 Reuben sprite for the map. I can hack Axe's sprite routine in two seconds if you want so that you can use it because it looked better IMO. ;)

Ah ok cool to hear. As for the screen blinking, if it isn't dependent on DispGraph then maybe it could be handy if you ever change the battle intro to look like the original. From what I remember, the screen grayscale basically turns black, then the screen content scrolls up, being XOR'ed every frame. Of course the bottom is erased faster than the rest of the content scrolls out.

The issue with the 8*9 sprites is the masking of the additional pixel layer, it'd slow down my moving engine too much :/

That's why I offered to mod the Axe routine. It will make it fast enough because that will make it display an actuall 8*9 sprite instead of two 8*8's. ;)

Well, lines are slow. :P Unless you use HLine but that didn't exist back then.

Do it anyways. I want to see this.

Yeah I'm gonna do it. It won't be slower than the 8*8 routine. Also, why do you even use masks if Reuben only walks on white ? And I need to know which command you use to draw him.

Would the extra routine require more code though? I think Sorunome is pretty limited in code space now.

Dropping more data in appvars will help a lot.
