Last update before I go to Texas for a long weekend. I felt like I needed to get something done so I picked a small item to do. Food. You can now eat in the game by using command T. it reduces hunger by 25. If you are full you can't eat so no food wasting, although it you are at 1 and eat you only get a reduction of 1 so some waste. When you eat you have a stat change and it prints your stat bar.

 

The stat bar is changed a bit and this is what it all means

Heart  - hit points
S      - speed, might have a boot here since I do mean walking speed
F      - Find chance%, not sure what final pic will be.
H      - Hunger, is there a picture to describe hunger?
Shield - defense chance%
sword  - attack chance%
DM     - attack damage max
Leg    - amount of food on hand.

Everything has max and min values

 

Here is my potential key list not all active yet and more may come.

 

A-(A)TTACK
B-(B)REAK TRAP
C-(C)LIMB LADDER
D-MOVE LEFT OR ACTION LEFT
E-MOVE UP OR ACTION UP
F-(F)IND TRAP OR SECRECT DOOR
G-(G)ET ITEM
H-
I-CHECK (I)NVENTORY
J-
K-
L-(L)OOK
M-DISAR(M) TRAP
N-
O-(O)PEN DOOR OR CHEST
P-
Q-
R-
S-MOVE LEFT OR ACTION LEFT
T-EA(T)
U-(U)SE FROM LIST, ITEM,SCROLL,POTION
V-
W-
X-MOVE DOWN OR ACTION DOWN
Y-
Z-SHOW CHARACTER STATS

 

 

So that's the game for atleast the next 5 days How long is this comp? I got alot more to get done, lol.

Just played the new installment. Awesome stuff, man... awesome....

 

Couldn't get my stats to pop up using "Z" though.....

 

Still, fantastic game, man... well done

 

Well that's odd let me dl it and check.

Hm... based on my own experiences while programming in BASIC, I think you're a little over-ambitious with what you can accomplish... Just tracking 26 letter commands alone is a LOT of code space.

 

A small example of how I'd implement it:

 

50 CALL KEY(3,K,S)
51 IF (K<65)+(K>90)THEN 50
52 ON K-64 GOTO 100,200,300,400,500,600,700,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

 

Keep in mind you have line limits as well, ON GOTO and ON GOSUB have physical limits to the number of options. You can get a little extra line space by EDIT'ing the line, which gives you an extension of about a line at the cost of efficiency.

Maybe use "M" for menu and then have all those keyboard shortcuts show up on screen--- it would eliminate some delay in your main game loop--- might give you a bit if extra speed. :)

 

Of course, menu screens can be limiting in themselves. :) Whatever you do, I'm sure it'll be slick! Game looks great man!!
