But what I mean is that blue effect you get on 83+SE/84+ calcs when changing contrast back and forth from low to high value at rapid rate
Doesn't that overload the LCD and break it?

No, not that blue effect. Test mode, which is even more blue, does, though. The contrast blue thing is less blue than test mode and you won't see the LCD pixels looking like they leak on others or stuff like that.

well scrolling effect was a bit slow to be honest x.x, it was cool, but it didn,t even show up between every map so I guess it's better to have it everywhere or not at all

I have been doing some light work on the game, but I sped up the loading process, and then slowed it down a little bit... D:
I also made the loading screen look better, and I am planning to rewrite the engine (to make it faster) I have already come up with a few ways to speed it up...but I haven't acted upon them yet...but yeah

yay! rewriting an engine can take a lot of time and high amount of motivation.  But we know you can do it! Sounds like you already have some ideas, so thats great!

yeah! I kind of took a page from your coding style :P
having more then one main loop, you just leave one if there is an event and such :P
so yeah...I'll have to write this down sometime so you can look at my idea, just after teh contest though

well I'm almost done the new engine :P
I actually wrote it already!
it is about twice as fast, and it's doesn't get too slow with enemies :P
I am rewriting the events so that they are hard coded into the map...to speed it up, and I have to work out one or two bugs, as well as make ladders/water work

nice to hear! I knew it could be faster too (judging by Metroid II speed, despite still being a bit slow at times). ^^
