Revisiting an old idea...

Recommended Posts

I'm away for a couple weeks and this pops up! Maybe I need to take breaks more often if it results in great news! This sounds like a really interesting project and definitely unique in a lot of ways. I look forward to seeing how it develops.

Thanks guys! :)

 

I had an idea; being that each player gets processed on separate frames, I'm going to try and create a routine that draws each player's map (if inside a castle) on the opposite frame (I.e. while on the frame where it processes player one, draw player two's map). I want to try and create a 'drawmap' routine that takes an upper left row, upper left column, hscroll, vscroll, and has the ability to draw the map from any point within. If I can do that, I won't need the extra memory.

 

Again, though, I believe I'm very close to a closing date on my new house (supposed to be the beginning of next week) so this all may be put off a while.

Figures. I finally get back into programming for this and BPM, right before I have to pack everything up. :(

Maybe Propane13 is right; there isn't enough chaos from the move itself... :P

I don't have an update on this project yet, but I just wanted to make sure I came in here and said thank you again for the above posts. :)

I like the two-player scrolling idea of this one... but I need to add more 'Adventure-like' ideas to it. I'd like to make it more of a balance of that and Cloudy-Mountain.

 

I'm trying to decide on this or ReZolve or Defender (hence the three posts).

Humble two cents...This may be best to return to first. For a couple of reasons.

 

An Arcade(/Pinball) port - first of its kind no less - was just performed. Defender, although great, would be passing along a similar vein of another Arcade port.

 

In conjunction with that, for both ReZolve and Defender, they were stopped in part due to already existing problems with them. Adventure III would be a fresh start to get you started on a 'good foot'.

 

Absolutely would love to see Defender and ReZolve brought to complete fruition, but a fresh start with no preexisting baggage/frustration may be just what is needed at this time.

 

Regardless, you do what is best for you and makes you happiest. :)

Follow your muse of course, but I'd say that a native 7800 Adventure title is a big hole waiting to be filled right now. :-)

Just like what everyone else is saying. Follow what you want. However, since you asked. I would say....

 

Adventure

Resolve

Defender

 

In that order.

I agree with beefy. Do what U want as baby pac seemed like a snuggle with a struggle at times. Now it is time to let the game come to you. Kinda 4th dimension type of stuff.
