Saving coordinates would force me to create 5 more appvars which I would need to archive them all when the player exits to prevent accidental ram clears and losing data. I think I might reset the player at the beginning of the new level. Level 1 and you exit then you will return at the beginning at level 1, but if you are in Level 2 then you will return at the beginning of Level 2.

Why 5 appvars ? ???
You know you can store several bytes in one appvar, even several times the size of a variable, right ?
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Yes but I don't know how to do that yet so for now I have to store them in several appvars.

Well if you ask someone can help you out :) I imagine Axe just uses the OS's routines so saving more than one variable shouldn't be any more difficult than just saving one variable.

EDIT: This is looking really great, by the way. Movement is a little slow but i love the bars and the action and everything!

Well I don't know how to access the different (slots) of an appvar to store multiple data into one data, so can anyone can teach/tell me how to do it?

Well it's always RAM that you manipulate.
You can do 1→{L3} and 1→{L3}r but also 1→{L3+1} or 1→{L3+2}r.
Well the exact same way, after a GetCalc("appvNAME",X)→P, you can do 1→{P} and 1→{P}r (if X>1) but also 1→{P+1} or 1→{P+2}r.

Will it get stored back into the appvar after you close the program?

If you are storing it to a pointer, yes. So basically if you want to create a new appvar if one does not exist, and archive it at the end of the program, it would go something like this:
Code: [Select]
1->{L1}:1->{L1+1}     //some initialization, if appvar doesn't exist these will not change
If GetCalc("appvDATA",Y0)    //checks to see if appvar exists and is in archive
{Y0}->{L1}                             //store data from the appvar into some free RAM
{Y0+1}->{Y0+1}
End

...Program that manipulates data in {L1} and {L1+1}...

Unarchive "appvDATA"      //unarchives it, if it doesn't exist (still) it does nothing
GetCalc("appvDATA",2)->S    //overwrites the previous appvar that may or may not have existed
{L1}->{S}                             //store data into appvar
{L1+1}->{S+1}
Archive "appvDATA"           //archives it
Return                               //ends the program

If you run this code every time the program runs, it will store the initial values (1 and 1) to the data you need if the appvar did not previously exist (running for the first time) and gets the data from the appvar if returning to a saved game. And at the end it stores the values back into the appvar and archives it.

Just a question but why are you using Y0 and what is it?

As far as I know it's the only way in Axe to read data from the archive, if you wanted to unarchive the appvar first, you could store it to some pointer and access it from that. But otherwise if the data is only accessible from the archive with the Y tokens. (Y0-Y9)

That is correct, the y-vars are the archive pointers. You can't do a lot with them, like only read data via like {Y0+2} or via Copy(

This is a mini update but I'm working on a skill tree which is dependent on your level. You will be able to unlock new moves and abilities by using the skill tree. Also there is a new enemy :D .

Right now when I try to compile the program into the app I get a not enough rom error and after I garbage collect, it does nothing at all ???  (by nothing at all I mean it still says not enough rom space). Anyone have suggestions?
