good news! I found a recent backup on computer. There were hardly any changes from the backup, so I would resume on working on it.

Somehow, it seems like on the new forums, a lot of lost projects gets retrieved fine (or almost), while on the old board, everyone would lose their stuff (90% of the time, due to a laptop dying... don't wonder why I hate laptops so much) and never retrieve it again

When I had a calc crash and before I found my backup on computer, I was like, okay. This will be a fresh beginning and let's move on. So I started making the title screen, and it came out pretty good. So when I found my backup, I decided to just use that title screen for the game, because it looks way more better. There will be only one save file. The second program is showing the starting map for the character. It looks more town-like(?) than the other one.

Edit: The decompressing doesn't do anything yet. I just used For( for it right now, because there is nothing to decompress yet and the version number isn't right. It's probably more like v 0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1 but oh well

Wow!  That looks incredible!  Awesome job!   I love the new title screen!  That's amazing!  Excellent work!  This makes me want TLM even more.

I like how your maps look.  They look really good!  I like the clouds especially!

wow nice title screen, and I like how it looks complex like if it was a pic, yet still displays pretty fast. Nice job on it

Also I like the village layout, the houses fits well now it seems.

Keep up the good work

thanks guys. I used method from contra to make the map and stuff.  I used fast circle draw (putting {i  as the last argument) for the compass

Now i'm going over the movement code again for speed optimization and such, and writing out the code for the battle system

That sounds great!  I love the title screen.   It's excellent!  I just noticed the finance N is made by Text.

Awesome job!

Nice, so the title screen is a map? I wonder how much memory does it take? Sometimes we can save a lot of RAM hardcoding pictures instead of storing images in actual picture files.

Yeah, and sometimes it even looks cool (especially in this case).

I think it was like ~600 byte with just the map. What I did was this method:

Code: [Select]
:{15231561,42133313,62186251,48604839:For(X,1,dim(Ans:Line(iPart(Ans(X)/E6),iPart(E2fPart(Ans(X)/E6)),iPart(E2fPart(Ans(X)/E4)),E2fPart(Ans(X)/E2:End
Source: http://tibasicdev.wikidot.com/compression

I compared it to the hard-coded lines, and it got around 150~200 bytes smaller, but then the speed was tiny bit slower.
