KC Munchkin

Recommended Posts

Right now I've got KC and three ghosts. Only problem is that the three ghosts move in unison, but I want them to move independently from each other randomly across the maze (randomly for now, at least.) My questions are these: Why are they moving in unison, and how do i get them to move independently?

I don't know if it does the same for you, but when I run the program, the ghosts are outside of the maze and aren't even on the screen most of the time. Looks like you have more than one problem going on at once.

 

By the way, if you use collision detection in a maze game to keep the characters from going through walls, depending on how you do it, you'll either get characters that stick to the walls or bounce off the walls in an odd way. If you use pfread, you can keep them from sticking or bouncing.

The only way they could be outside of the maze is if they use the exit to the left and right. They start at the middle and are probably heading straight for the exit.

 

I've read about using pfread, but am unsure of how to do it using the Superchip, since the pfrow is set to 32 and not 8 like without it.

For me, they're hopping directly to the upper left side of the maze (outside of the maze).

I bet SeaGtGruff could come up with the proper conversion code.

Can you post the .bin file?

OK, but i'm not working on this anymore in favor of Toobin'.

 

That's too bad. :( KC is one of my all time favorites. I'd love to see several games

ported to the 2600 from the O^2.

I have played that game on and off for the past week or so and I like it EXCEPT for the electric walls! Otherwise it is a good game.
