I went to OpenEmu looking around for more efficient assembler routines just to find QFTGC sitting there.

I went to the directory, low and behold it was just the rom.

A couple of questions come to mind.

 

1) was the source in C or Assembly

2) is it available for review and learning

and

3) is it available for review and learning....

 

All my snags in developing spawns, of course, from lack of knowledge and as a reminder I have no desire to steal code and once I release my first PD game all help will be mentioned in the credits.

Things I can learn from this particular source is collision between background tiles and sprites.
My current routine has a bug in it that if I if I hit a corner I can go through some walls.
Other things are animation and memory management and all kinds of things.

Hey, if they are trade secrets then so be it but at least write a Coleco Assembly guide with examples that I can purchase if you don't want to release any source code.

 

Many thanks to everyone who has helped me so far.

My game is 80% done as of last month, just been busy with other things.

 

TIA

Quest for the Golden Chalice was developed by Mystery Man (according to my specifications) and just like every other homebrew author who worked for Team Pixelboy, he only sent me the ROM and he kept the source code to himself, which was always fine by me.

Team Pixelboy and Pixelboy confused me like The Father, The Son and The Holey Ghost are 3 but 1...

It's an awesome game.  The dude knows his &&it

If you're planing to sell your game, you can make a deal with Mystery Man and share the revenue with him.

That is a great idea.  I should contact him sometime but what I am making now is 100% free to the community.

I sent a pm to someone names MysteryMan2000 so I can only suspect that's him.
If you have an alternate can someone send that to me that would be cool too.
