Re: We need a better name for "Adventure Games."

I for one hate genre categories. It makes the industry stale. Don't we miss the good old days when games were more experimental?

Seems like the emulator devs have their bases covered by publicly saying they would never touch the leaked files. :) wink wink

Yeah, by lower resolution I meant the option that uses the least amount of screen space.

Lower resolution, but use the borders for HUD or to display artwork.

Banshaku and Macbee are working on such a project. Why not join efforts instead?

Re: Alternatives to warp pipes

Doors. Just hit UP, and you're somewhere else. It may or may not be geometrically consistent . That's what I immediately thought. It's a door. Super Pitfall has Condors and blind spots. But it's so obvious I think what the OP meant was that the player character moves in a direction as he is transpo...

Re: Aren't you afraid that NES Maker would just bring lazy noobs

If only there were a tool that offered point and click game creating / editing with the flexibility of modifying the engine under the hood. Nothing like that exists currently to my knowledge. ...Well, that "thing" may soon exist. That is all i can say about it, for now =) :D :beer: Sounds like a dr...

Re: First color in background palette is always 0F

IIRC the bg palette is taken from the first color from the sprites palettes, so make that one $0C and the others whatever value. .db $0C,$2D,$00,$10, $0C,$15,$38,$20, $0C,$27,$07,$30, $0C,$05,$15,$35 ;;background palette .db $0C,$0C,$2C,$38, $0F,$15,$0D,$10, $0F,$10,$21,$30, $0F,$00,$06,$26 ;;sprite...

Re: Forgot the name of the game

Can't remember anything like that for the 2600 either. The only rope I've seen on the atari is on Fishing Derby. I'm trying to remember the name of a game I played circa 1999-2002. It's a windows card game, in anime style (probably hentai, I think). The card game's name is Daifugō (大富豪, Grand Millio...

Re: Background sprites cutoff too soon

Yep, that works perfectly and may be best.
The other approach, which is what I meant, is a nested loop. 2 counters, one you count up to #ff. When it reaches that point you inc the second counter and compare it to 4.
