Who is reading Intellivision Programming right now?

Recommended Posts

What the title says ;)

 

Please answer or reveal yourself, I invoke you.

At this exact microsecond, me.

 

I can't guarantee much beyond that, though. I've been like a crack-addled squirrel lately.

Tell me your idea for a small game :) you've already did it :grin:

Was gonna say... "Crack Addled Squirrel" at least sounds like a starting point...

 

:-D

Well, this squirrel is really on a trip.

 

It runs as fast as it can and you should jump to avoid rocks.

 

If you endure enough, you'll see his girlfriend :)

 

P.S: No sound... yet... ;)

Quick question on the code - why don't you need "debounce" for the control?

 

Thanks.

Debouncing isn't needed for joystick control or keypad control (if you are using it in game)

 

It's a word used to describe the effect of pushing a key and getting multiple repeats on screen, so typically debouncing is only used in static screens.

 

This is commonly handled in IntyBASIC games using this:

 

WHILE cont.key = 12:WAIT:WEND ' Wait till key is pressed

key = cont.key ' take note

WHILE cont.key <> 12:WAIT:WEND ' Wait till key is depressed

Don't wait! The Intellivision has the best looking developers. You want to be here.

 

 

 

Right here! I'm trying to decide which system to jump into for my first project: Atari 2600, Intellivision or Colecovision.

I am reading it right now. Earlier today I wanted to test something in IntyBASIC and ended up with 100+ rows of code... but the test was successful!

I recently moved to a new country so have bee absent, but am now back to reading this on a daily basis to see what new is up.

 

Welcome back!

 

I also was away for several months due to having lost my computer to an electrical storm. I just recently got a replacement, so I am now back and active.

 

However, I typically provide ideas, suggestions, feedback, and some general technical advice; but cannot help directly on IntyBASIC matters, since I do not use it myself. Now, if anybody have a programming question related to Assembly Language, I may be of assistance. :)
