This is looking fantastic! Are you redrawing the screen every frame?

Horizontal and Vertical make for a great way to avoid doing so, leafy. Then you just redraw one side's tiles to fill in the missing pixel

@leafy, yeah, there's a DispGraphClrDraw before every frame is drawn.

This could get you negative votes! O.O

J/k it's ok lol. I just remember when Ashbad literally begged for a post rating once and he got negatives :P

Anyway that looks nice. Graphics-wise did you inspire yourself from Hero of Hyrule in the RPG downloads section by the way? Because I notice some graphics are kinda similar, but again I think there was another Zelda clone and some graphics by Necro on the forums that had similar graphics too, so I think it's pretty much the standard, thanks to the resizing of Link's Awakening sprites from 16x16 to 8x8.

Good luck though, because a Zelda project is a huge undertaking, even if you have 3 dungeons and 9 kind of enemies or so.

The only problem is when you move at variable speeds, though. Otherwise in a game like this where there's no physic involved, this is fine.

No, they're from Oracle of Ages, the actual.

Cupcake looking things? I think you mean the trees? lol

And as for the smooth-scrolling, it's really not much different from the engine I gave you. In fact, I/we based this engine off of that one.

Trees in older Zelda games always looked that way actually. I think they look nice that way.
