Then, the end of the level stream is marked by LVLSTR_END. When this point is reached, the game waits for every enemies to be killed, then quits - although for now you can't kill enemies so we'll see if that works when I'll implement collisions :P

^That was the part I forgot when I was seaching how to dsign a SHMUP. THanks!
* Eiyeron is gonna write some things for that. Someday...

Yay, collisions ! They're still nice even without actual HP ;D



Also, the level stream does work correctly :D

Idea: If you use a function that takes an index as a wrapper instead of directly accessing the array, then you could use both the current level stream idea and use a streamy stream, such as something infinite or random or better than what I can think of right now.

I don't really understand what you mean ... could you be more precise please ? :/

Anyway, as some people on TI-Planet told me that the sprites were too big for the screen, I tried to use sprites of half their original size (until then, I was using sprites 3/4 of their size). Which one do you prefer ? I personally think the smaller sprites will permit more things to happen on-screen.

Three-quartered size :



Halved size :



Which one do you prefer ?
Also, these patterns are the exact first ten seconds of the original Ikaruga game ;D

I do indeed prefer the half sized sprites. You might then just ask the creator to make new sprites that are that size, though, as they look a bit messed up by the scaling right now.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

Example code:
So you have this:
Code: [Select]
int levelStream[] = {
enemy(110, 0, image_LUT_enemy_ship_0_light, image_LUT_enemy_bullet_1_light, callback_LUT_0, LIGHT, 1),
enemy(220, 0, image_LUT_enemy_ship_0_shadow, image_LUT_enemy_bullet_1_light, callback_LUT_0, SHADOW, 1),
cmd_killed,
LVLSTR_END
};
and you (probably) access it like this:
Code: [Select]
levelStream[n]
If you did this:
Code: [Select]
int levelStreamAArray = {enemy(...),enemy(...),cmd_killed,LVLSTR_END};
int levelStreamA(int n) = levelStreamArray[n];
int (*levelStream)(int);
levelStream = &levelStreamA
and accessed like this:
Code: [Select]
levelStream(n)
then you could also do this with just a change to your levelStream pointer:
Code: [Select]
int levelStreamB(n) = switch (n%3)
    case 0:
        return enemy(110, 0, image_LUT_enemy_ship_0_light, image_LUT_enemy_bullet_1_light, callback_LUT_0, LIGHT, 1);
        break;
    case 1:
        return enemy(220, 0, image_LUT_enemy_ship_0_shadow, image_LUT_enemy_bullet_1_light, callback_LUT_0, SHADOW, 1),
        break;
    case 2:
        return cmd_killed;
        break;
    default: // Stops the compiler from yelling at you and is probably good in case of lobsters
        return LVLSTR_END;
levelStream = &levelStreamB
You access it the same:
Code: [Select]
levelStream(n)
Make sure your functions don't grab the whole array/function at once, and you're great! (New idea: survive for X amount of time; you could just put a case at top that gives LVLSTR_END if the time is done)

I don't really see the point as the stream is intended to be read sequentially anyway (though the level script will include some conditional jumps).

About surviving, in Ikaruga you beat the last boss by surviving 60 seconds while being unable to fire any bullet :P

Bump,

So while waiting for better sprites, I started implementing the first level of the original Ikaruga. Well, I really didn't think I would have to use parametric functions and second/third degree polynomials for trajectories x.x

The result is pretty nice anyway :

So I made a Github repository here : https://github.com/matrefeytontias/nKaruga . Feel free to fork it and contribute if you want :)

Any help, valuable commit or feature request is of course greatly appreciated :)

Playing with the patterns engine. That's why "danmaku" means "bullet hell".
