yep :) it's because it doesn't test everything, only until it comes to a true statement

well, sorry for the double post, but I thought that this deserved a post of it's own:
I am over halfway done the first world and then I will work on events for it. I haven't really been doing anything with the engine lately, because I think I am pretty much done it. I actually was thinking about dual layer text sprites with smaller text, how would that work? anybody played around with that yet?

except a larger area for stuff ;D (but i suppose it would take longer to fill up the area)
Then again, maybe not...

I was thinking of how much bigger your maps could be with it

with smaller text it might not look as good, though. also small text seems to display slower than big text
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

ok, another update...
I have almost finished the first world, and I think there will be enough RAM for the map data, but if not I'll think of something. I will then add in the events, which I already planned out

if you run out of RAM, are you planning to have some maps stored in archive and an asm lib to unarchive them when needed? Or will the user manually unarchive/archive levels/worlds?

I want to keep it completely BASIC so the user will have to manually do it...I already know that you will have only enough room for one world at a time, maybe

yep, unless I could somehow stay in the BASIC category in the contest but use an ASM lib for the archiving/unarchiving

Would using something like Mirage make your platform game not in the BASIC category?

using MirageOs header would still allow the game in the BASIC category. If DoorCS 6 headers won't cause the game to not run from the PRGM menu, then yes too.
