Dinosaur! (the title screen)

Sign in to follow this  


About 17 hours ago, I put on the internet the beginnings of a game I began working on called "Dinosaur!". This is for the Atari 2600 using assembly. And it's my most ambitious assembly game I have to date. What I want in the end is a game like "Jurassic Park" (for the NES). I bought Jurassic Park for the NES. (I also have a Game Gear version.) I haven't played it yet, but I know what the objectives are: To clear levels and shoot dinosaurs. I woke up at 6 p.m. after going to bed (finally) at 4 a.m. So when I woke up a few hours ago, I improved upon what I had. I made the tires roll along instead of having the same tire sprite. I made the grass different colors. It now looks like this.


I tested it on a real 2600. There's a black border that goes all the way around it, which is fine, but why doesn't it show up in Stella? All it shows is the bottom and the top black border, but it doesn't show the side part. The purple mountains scroll to the left. The front of the Jeep is there to hide some ugly black lines that showed up when I used HMOVE to make the purple mountains (missile0). I was thinking about removing the Jeep and making the purple mountains player0, but then I thought, "I could make PLAYER1 a trio of trees that scroll along with the mountains." So I'll see if I can do that.
