THis sounds promising. As you said on IRC and the other topic, you had a big part of the gameplay done already, right? As safety tip, make sure to backup often in case a crash occurs. I'm glad you're back into calc programming. :D
In case you are wondering where I went, I am still regularly active in the TI community and am even making new TI-84 Plus CE games. However, I left Omnimaga back in March 2015 for various reasons explained here and there. I might come back one day, depending of certain circumstances, but my new TI community home (despite me being Omnimaga founder in 2001) is now CodeWalrus ( https://codewalr.us ). Sorry for the inconveniences.

Yep, the basic is done, only have support for more than one level and level complete detection left to do, maybe some powerups too, and, of course, bugs to solve.

And I love how Axe backups your code in archive everytime you compile it. I had lots of RAM clears during development. (Like when the game refuses to quit and I have to pull a battery.)

Cool, will you post screenies soon? :D And I see. Don't only rely on Axe backups, though, because I heard about stories of corruption before. Also perform backups on a computer from time to time.

Thanks :)

I'll post some screenies soon, when I'll finish installing Windows on my mom's laptop.

I'm glad to hear. I was a bit worried when there were no updates ;.;

Well yeah, half done. I didn't had any school this week, so my calc was kinda uninteresting...

And a wild screenshot appears, showing some bugs left.

are you just switching really quickly between which sprite/buffer to display for your grayscale? if so you should still use a dithering pattern to clean it up a little.

i rather like how this is looking. congrats.

This looks nice, but yeah I think you should use DispGraphr for grayscale dithering, to minimize the flickering effect. It would make your grayscale look like Reuben Quest.

Yeah, right now I use a boolean variable that changes values each frame for grayscale. I'll try to figure out DispGraphr soon. In fact, next time I'll mess with the code.

Right now, grayscale is pretty much like this. But a little more optimized.
Code: [Select]
.Do stuff
If G
 Pt-On(r1, r2, Pic1BK
Else
 Pt-On(r1, r2, Pic2BK
End
.Do more stuff
not(G)->G
DispGraphClrDraw

I kind of like that the ball travels under the paddle. It'd make for some insane gameplay if you had a second paddle immediately underneath and you could bounce the ball off of it when the ball catches like that.
