Quick update of my colecovision game.

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision, My brawler game 31 December 2018 · 80 views

I managed to make a title screen without messing up with the rest of the game.
 
Press Fire 1 to play.

 
You'll need a Colecovision emulator or a real console to play this rom.
 


Flickering sprites on ColecoVision

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 29 December 2018 · 100 views

I never noted until now in Donkey Kong on Colecovision, Mario is flickering, best noted in level 2.
 

 
Mario seems to be drawn with three sprites. When two mods come out, Mario started flickering.
 
I'm not sure what Mario looks like if he was drawn with only two sprites instead. The game would improve a little, less flickering but Mario...


My brawler ColecoVision game

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision, My brawler game 26 December 2018 · 94 views

I worked on my unname brawler game today.
 

 
What's new:
 
  Press Button 1 to attack
 
  Press either 1 or 2 to select a weapon: fist, crowbar or whip.
 
 
You can't defeat an enemy in this demo. The player just has attack animation, nothing else.
 
I can't figure how to use FIRE3. Either the emulator doesn...


Another day, another work

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision, My brawler game 18 December 2018 · 69 views

I worked on my brawler game on ColecoVision again.
 

 
Aaaaaaaaaah geez!
 
I found a technique of flickering sprites.
 
Here my game in progress: 
 
You need a Colecovision emulator or the real console to play it with the flash cartridge.
 
The player can move but not fight yet.
 
I should limit to two ennemies o...


My colecovision thing again

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision, My brawler game 16 December 2018 · 93 views

I was planning to take a break today.
 
But I decided to work on my brawler game again.
 

 
The background looks better.
 
I also reworked on sprites and added more.
Now the fighters don't look naked anymore.
 
Now the sprites can move forth and back.
Another big step for me.
 
I still can't managed to control them with joy...

Here my brawler colecovision game I made so far.
 

 
 
This is the first time I animate sprites on this system.
 
Feel free to try my game:
 
The backgrounds need to be changed.
 
 
Make sprites to move

Colecovision stuff again

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 15 December 2018 · 89 views

I played Popeye on Colecovision.
 
The first thing I noted is the witch/woman throwing bottles always displays in the square.
 

 
I think she drawn in tiles instead sprites because Colecovision's limits.
 
Popeye is still fun playing it. 
 
 
Good thing to know.


A brawl/fight game on Colecovision

Posted by Serguei2, in My brawler game, Programming Colecovision 14 December 2018 · 89 views

I played Lethal Weapon on gameboy and I wonder if there is a fight/brawl game for colecovision.
 
After messing with codes, I managed to get something.
 

 
Yeah!!!! It's my brawl/fight game.
 
Colecovision has limited colour to choose from. Even if it has 15 colors, most of them are different of reds, greens and blues.
 
In the...


A room editor for my colecovision game

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 30 August 2016 · 506 views

I made a room editor for my colecovision game.
 
It would be easier to design rooms.
 

 
With this editor, you can export codes to make the game like this.
 

 
Just copy and past these codes to your programs.
 
I noted CCI supports only strings with 256 characters. But this is still fine.
 
Instead writing 24 lines...


Exploring Colecovision screen modes part 2

Posted by Serguei2, in Download, Programming Colecovision 20 August 2016 · 463 views

With the help of Kiwi, I can now go all colecovision screen modes.
 
This new rom will go all screen modes.
 

 
 
Just wait for a moment, the program will switch to another screen mode.


Exploring Colecovision screen modes

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 19 August 2016 · 490 views

I spent all the day if I can use all screen modes on Colecovision
 
Modes 1 and 2 are easy.
 
 
But I can't get screen o and 3.
 
 
Mode 0:
 
Reg/Bit 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0
0        -        -       -         -        -    ...


Improved room

Now my room is more enjoyable.
 

 
The colecovision palette is limited and hard to make a nice picture.
 
Feel free to try this new rom.
 

 
If you wait a little, a new room will show up.


Still learning Colecovision

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 16 August 2016 · 487 views

It's a long way to learn how to make Colecovision games.
 
At least, I made few progress.
 

 
This level layout is boring for the moment but I will improve it.
 
I first want to make Atari 2600 games but the 2600 is not my taste because,  the joystick only has one button.
 
The play field on 2600 is just blank...


ColecoVision Programming

ColecoVision Programming I started learning programming on  Colecovision.
 
Here my Hello World program.
 

 
Of course, you need a Colecovision emulator to run it.
 
Next step: making a Colecovision game.
