Should I make the framerate constant or should I leave it as it is, sometimes 50 fps and sometimes 62?

I just noticed it would be much more difficult than I thought, so I'll leave it as it is.

I wonder if you will add variable platform heights, with hills and stuff, along with holes?

I think I'll first add animations, since I would have to rewrite almost everything to implement your suggestions.

No need for two separate posts so close together, so I combined them. :) For future reference, you can use the "modify" button if you just have a quick thought to add.

Sorry, I didn't notice I doubleposted.

I read that just moving the screen for scrolling and only drawing the new pixels would be faster than redrawing everything, but would I have to memcpy every line or is there a faster way?

It's the good way, but use memov instead of memcpy.

Am I right that I need two buffers for this, one for everything that I want to display and one for the parts of the screen that get shifted.

I implemented the memmove scrolling and it's a bit slower, I think because it needs two buffers and has to copy both every frame :(
The old method got 1800 fps and the new one only 1450 in the emulator.

Edit: by only copying the needed parts of the buffer I get 1600 fps

After some months without calc programming I finally returned and continued this project  ;D

It now has an animated stick figure, but for now only when running (because I'm not very talented and slow in drawing). It probably rather looks like a walking figure than like a running one :-\

And I created a moving screenshot with Jonius7's tutorial ;)

This will probably be the last update on this project because it's more or less complete and I'm more interested in new ideas.
I don't remember everything I've changed, but the most important thing is that it now generates a different level every time you run it.
