Awesome, yeah for this purpose it will do just fine. Won't need a zero case, and won't need a number larger than 64. This is quick and clean - thanks! :-) ** And btw - shouldn't that read BNE loop rather than BEQ loop ? Keep adding the one number and decreasing the other until the other is zero, the...

So, I'm restructuring a method here of how I'm doing something, and I'm realizing that the simplest way to achieve this would be a simple multiplication...but I know that's not such a simple thing if not by a power of two in ASM. What's the best method you guys have for multiplying arbitrary, variab...

Sounds reasonable. Again, though, having a rough time translating the concept from high level into ASM. It's definitely my higher level thinking getting in the way, but I haven't found any references for doing something like this specifically for nes development. Might benefit folks like me to see a...

You guys are awesome. I really do need some help with this routine. Again, I'm understanding the concept alright, and I successfully prepped my object drawing routine to draw based on moveable indexed values, but still having a hard time with the actual sorting. I've got an array drawOrder. It holds...

Great example. That would suit the purposes just fine. I'm curious how to code an insertion sort in asm. Completely get the concept of shifting array values after a compare, but am trying to do it as efficiently as possible, and never really thought it out in ASM... Anyone offer any tips before I di...

Doug - yes. And it was done plenty in NES titles (think of beat em ups, for an example, even though my game is not a Beat em up). Functionally, with a little tweaking, I think it actually works pretty good. But the graphic issue definitely will be a problem. Yeah, I've got to figure out a system of ...

I've seen this suggested while perusing the forums, perhaps by you even. I foresee a slight problem with that with the way I handle actual object-to-object collision currently. Imagine a '1 unit tall' object behind the top of a '4 unit' tall object. They don't and shouldn't collide. Collision would ...

I've seen a few folks discuss here how they've handled ordering their objects, mostly in terms of how flickering is handled and whatnot. I'm looking conceptually for a processor-efficient way to order objects based on their y value to suggest 2.5d depth. I feel like mechanically, I've developed a pr...

That could be why the problem just manifested, actually. I think my subroutine to load CHR ram might turn rendering back on at the end...aha....

That might be it. Gonna check!

This is not the first time I've seen this problem...hopefully I can explain it alright. I have a screen transition - everything fades out, the screen turns off, a bunch of updates occur, and then the screen turns back on and fades back. Works flawlessly. Just added a routine to load different tilese...

Hey dougeff - I actually rewrote the code...where that comment is defines a whole bunch of variables that determine the recoil behavior for the respective direction. I didn't include it because without a WHOLE lot of explanation it wouldn't likely make much sense and would've just made it complicate...

Thanks for the heads up - actually the original code used BCC and BCS rather than BMI and BPL...this iteration I think I was just grasping at straws. After an eye-bleeding scan of any and all related code, I found the culprit in one subroutine...a single letter missing was changing the wrong velocit...

So I have this routine that determines the player's 'recoil' direction in four direction based on the 'centerpoint' of the monster versus the 'centerpoint' of the player's hit box. It works fine for three directions, but I never seem to have a 'right' recoil. When it should recoil right, it always r...

Right, lidnariq - it seems the quickest method would be to just do the sin/cos math computation externally and populate a data table with the values...but that makes it complete static. That was one of my approaches. The other one is similar to what Rainwarrior is describing with accerleating around...

Yeah, the target point method is essentially what I'm working with. I can get oscillation in either axis just fine, I just can't get a dependable circular motion that way...or even close, no matter how i populate the starting values or starting velocities (LOTS of trial and error, too). I mean, it's...
