he said no grayscale :P

Since Worms are too small to have different graphics and bitmapping is too slow to have greyscale, I guess we'll display R, G, B or Y above each worm to tell its color.

Then, as another differentiator, there could be two shapes - rounded like you currently have, and boxy sprites.

I have no idea how to quickly differentiate between allies enemies and which worm is currently selected. Maybe assign a 4x4 or 8x8 symbol over each worm to know which team it belongs to. And if this symbol can switch color if it overlaps an obstacle like a rock that would be ideal.

No, I think I'll stick with what I said earlier. That will be more practical and light code-wise than duplicating every sprite.

--' why does no one read what I post ... I wrote the exact same thing just two posts above yours, in the message pimathbrainiac quoted !

And you know what worm you control since the camera is on it.

I think this works pretty well, though since there are technically no colors I might do the teams by number (if it were me).

Mh yeah, I'll display 1 to 4 above each worm depending on the team, this actually makes more sense than colors.

Yeah, numbers is a good idea.
Or maybe pattern on the worm?

... Seriously, why don't you read what I write for once.

Since Worms are too small to have different graphics

Did you see a screenshot of the program ? I can't even fit stripes on Worms, they are too small (8*6) !

yes i did see it.
So maybe white, black, checkerboard, and like a thingy like this:
X0X0X
00000
X0X0X
00000

etc.
Because i think that could fit in such a small worm....

I'll just go with numbers. This way I won't have to have 4 copies of the same sprite for animations.

Too much work for not much use :P the way I handle worms, I just have to add one line of code to make worms recognizable by team with numbers above them.

Alright, I finally got around the game subsystem ;D I must admit it was a real pain to synchronize all variables to make certain actions possible in a particular phase. Also, worms can be damaged and die ! But no explosion yet. That'll come :P



Next I'll take care of worms repartition into teams, because the engine doesn't actually use the team information each worm has.
