Hmm... when you finished this, once August 1st hits you should release the source in public so someone can make a basket ball game or something using the object manipulation stuff O.O

Also it looks awesome, as always :)

I have the object physics separate actually, as a OBJPHYS.8xp...

Tho it's kind of specialized atm regarding detection and such, but I can edit a few things and release it ;)

EDIT: there's an idea..."Axketball" or something

That's a very good use for this routine, nice job with it :D

I've since added the ability to choose where the object originates in the level.  I'm thinking of developing a better UI for the editor, atm it's kind of messed up (you have to memorize the something like 8 buttons atm :P

Atm I'm implementing options to the editor:  whether the player is allowed to shift and/or switch.

While I'm doing that, feel free to throw out anything you'd like to see in this (keep it realistic, tho :P)

Planned/thought about (mostly tiles) :
tile solid to player, air to object
vice-versa of above
tiles that create force on object (ie if it goes in a down tile it's vert velocity is set to the max downward, 32 (all 4 directions))
one-way tiles, might have trouble spriting (tile animations are pretty much out of the question with 4 level grayscale unless i went to 15 mhz)
switches, doors
multiple objects?
8*8 graphics with either
    smoothscrolling or roughscrolling

EDIT: also it looks as if "go boom" is going better in the poll.  what should happen afterwards?

EDIT2: also I'm trying to wring out this completely random bug...I think i know what's causing it but the easy way to fix it would also be a good way to slow the engine down: recompute a few coordinates for detection x.x

If the item is in the solid object, it should explode and destroy blocks in the immediate vicinity, then regenerate at its original location. This could be used as a puzzle element (the only way to get through a certain block complex is to destroy it, for instance).
But if you are in the solid object, you should die, and the level should restart.

Sounds good, editing the map might be tricky, but possible.

Also btw I'm not sure how possible it will be to have an explosion per se while the game is going, unless I redrew the level every frame.  I'm still working in 6mhz, so that would cause major slowdown x.x

Darl couldn't you just, when all the objects are not yet drawn, delete pixels or RectI( from whichever buffer you're working with? I agree, that would be an awesome gameplay element ^^

What i meant was a real explosion effect would probably be impossible in 6mhz without the game going at about 3/4 of the fps it's going now (unless runer was involved :P).
Not to mention how larger it would make it x.x

Simply making the box disappear is easily doable.
So, make box disappear and respawn at set point it is. (unless there's another good idea out there)

This means I'll have to make some indestructible blocks or something, b/c otherwise it would be possible to beat pretty much any level just by blasting your way through it if the object exists :/
(yes, planned option is whether object exists or not)


Designing a simple GUI for the editor atm.  So many options... 0.o

Notice that Builderboy's explosions are simply concentric circles with lines sticking out that only appear for 1 frame, along with a little screen shake using z-indexing (LCDKit).

True.  But idk if there's a way to XOR circles and/or lines, else I would have to redraw a buffer (or both) and that would be quite the pause x.x
* Darl181 wonders how builder did it..

I believe Builderboy stores the tilemap image in a buffer other than L₆, probably L₃. He can then use RecallPic every frame to recall the tilemap image to L₆, overwriting any sprites/circles that may have been drawn last frame.

:headdesk:
Hm since I'm using both buffers and the program is getting rather large as it is (~11k) I'll use an appvar or something rather than Zeros() .  w00t.
Actually I already have two extra buffers for the flipping thing...imma use that and save a few bytes ;D

Ok, this is doable now.  I'll probably just use vertical +/- since I'm using RecallPic when needed anyway.

I was wondering...
If I re-used the Tio tile selector (my own code) for the level editor, would that have a negative effect on the originality score?
Specifically a really modified version of this: (code from pre-050 or whenever closing parenthesis were suddenly needed more than before or whatever)
