Super Hexagon
« on: April 13, 2013, 08:57:15 pm »
Your favorite game, coming to TI-84s everywhere. Someday.




To be fair, I'm not sure this is going to work out for a few reasons -
1) No clipped lines (although I'm sure runer's working on it :) )
2) Lines are inherently slow.

I've worked out all the logic needed to run the game engine, but I can foresee major problems with speed in the future. I'll probably be reaching out to a few people to help out with optimizing the code, but I want to make sure I have everything down first. If anyone can see straight off the bat anything I can do to make it faster, be sure to tell me!

Things I've already built into the engine:
1) Global rotation, distortion, and skewing (including altering the number of sides between 4, 5, and 6)
2) Player movement
3) Loading of chunks
4) Player collision

Things to do:
1) Create mappings of levels based on random chunks
2) Music???

Now I can make myself dizzy all over again x.x

This is great though :D

Will you have the other patterns implemented as well?

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Well, this is going to be interesting to say the least. :) Best of luck, I can't wait to see how this turns out!

If you run into speed problems you might want to look into some sort of asm filled polygon routines.

I've certainly thought about that, but I'm not sure if there'd be much of a benefit. I'd need to generate trapezoids at arbitrary angles (currently, each trapezoid is 6 lines or so). In the worst-case scenario, I'd be drawing probably upwards of 88 Rects() (think largest polygon at 45 degree angle). Of course, I might be able to optimize that by combining touching layers, but there aren't many of those in the randomized chunks.

EDIT: I didn't see the asm, but I have no idea how to do that :)

This is so awesome, I thought of starting Axe up again just to port this game, but it seems it's not needed anymore by now :)
Thanks man, it's a frustrating, but so awesome and addictive game, really thanks!
