Alright some news for you,

First, I found what was making everything bug. Guess what ? It's the TI-OS's _vputS, that is used by Axe's Text(. Believe it or not, it's so unsafe it's amazing.

/!\ Funny story /!\

So what happened is that I was testing the game to see what was causing that bug, and when I quitted, I launched it again. On one of the game's bitmaps was "-10" written. So what happened is that the program tried to display text at impossible coordinates, so instead it wrote the text ... in RAM. Right in one of my variables. The b*tch.

So yeah, I'll be replacing all of my Text( calls by a custom routine (I mean only the ones that display numbers, the others are fine), resulting in both the suppression of every bug (I hope) and a speed improvement. So yeah ;D

Second, I've put a title screen and a small menu. For now, every option does the same thing, bring you to the map selection menu.



Third, in the map selection menu I planned to add a small preview of the map, so that justifies the fact that only one map name appears on the screen at a time (actually it's because I'm too lazy to do a listing ;D ).

And last, I planned to add save/load, so you can take a game back where you left it.

Yeah i'm pretty sure _vPutS doesn't do boundary checking or clipping, at least not vertically. Anyway, it's not going to cause problems unless it goes off the screen vertically since horizontally it'll just wrap around to the other side of the gbuf. But i wouldn't call expecting you to draw everything on the screen "unsafe" ;) If you tried to draw a sprite off the screen without proper clipping the same thing would happen. However, if all you're doing is displaying numbers, making your own routine and drawing 10 sprites (0-9) will speed things up a ton. Whenever i want to display numbers while the game isn't just paused, i use my own sprite routine.

It's looking nice, though. This game is really impressive :D

I draw nothing on-screen, everything goes in plotSScreen - including text (or at least supposed to) - and yeah, text isn't clipped vertically. Also, I already have digit drawing since I do display how many weapons of each type you have (in the weapons popup). Anyway, it's nice that this bug is solved because it kept corrupting my programs.

Also thanks everyone :)

Oh well I use direct screen text for debugging purposes so I guess it's OK. I have a custom text routine for the rest of the game.

So I was wondering, would it be that bad if each team only had 2 worms ? I know that's pretty poor, but given the size of the map, 3 worms per team is too much if you want 4 teams. Now that I think of it, 12 worms just won't fit in a 192*128 map, but 8 would.

So here you go : bug-free version, with a nice title screen and menu, improved map selection and all ;D
Although the main menu proposes a "load game" option, this isn't implemented yet, and will just send you to the map selection screen.

Readme included :)

Awesome to hear, but I really need to try the last version as soon as possible lol. I remember playing some similar game for the computer (with tanks) years ago with another Omni user, but I forgot the name. I also liked Obliterate but this Worm games has more complex map and stuff. :)
