Kasumi - Yeah, I have a column worth of RAM space for leading offscreen buffering (my intention) and will likely reserve one for *trailing* to for things like monsters moving to edges and whatever. But this is what you'd suggest knowing my current set up? Effectively shifting the thing column by col...

Right, but you had to move column 1 values to column 0, then 2 to 1, then 3 to 2...and so on...filling the new column to the right...correct?

Hey all - trying out a handful of things that rock the current boat least. I have lateral scrolling working visually, and I have no problem getting collision data scroll offsets. But...just wondering peoples' methods of updating tile collision data when scrolling (I know there are a few schools of t...

Ah - fixed it. Something stupid. Trying to read the sprite 0 check with drawing $2000 still set to 0 (at least, pretty sure that was it). Seems fixed now other than NOPing to get the timing so I don't get the flicker pixels. Thanks for the help - I think I just need to look at it with a cup of coffe...

Yeah - that was my instinct. That rogue 2006 writes without 2005 writes were the problem. But...simply disabling the zero sprite hit wait dismissed the problem. Curious.

I'll try that, though!

Obviously, attempting to cram in some potential scrolling functionality into an engine not set up for it has proved to be a bit of a trial. But so far so good. I went to add a sprite 0 hit to maintain the hud at the top of the screen. It's an easy enough concept, I get it. I had to add in a few cave...

I know some of you are at least passively curious as to the development of this tool, and what the front end will look like, and how it works with the underlying ASM, etc. Here's a link to the current feature video for the first draft of our HUD designer. It allows users to create custom sized boxes...

Tepples - yeah, that's sort of where our minds started going, just wondering if it was possible using what we were already using in a creative way. Thanks!

Tokumaru - haha thanks. Yeah, just trying to be close enough with the nomenclature for ASM to have people understand me. I would've likely called it an assembler operation if I'd really thought it through. haha. And drat. Curses. Was hoping. And Dougeff - yeah, you're getting close to what I'm looki...

I'm trying to have it merge the EQU strings of two constants. So...it's replacing CONSTANT_0 with Whatever_ and CONSTANT_1 with 0, so then a new value becomes Whatever_0, and then reading the value of Whatever_0 Is this not possible? (the addition is not meant to ADD a value of CONSTANT_1 to what is...

Alright, let me try to explain better. Let's say I have a constant that represents a variable image. VARIABLE_IMAGE_0 = #$00 VARIABLE_IMAGE_1 = #$19 And I want to create some sort of procedural string to call the VARIABLE_IMAGE, based on a variable, without taking up the ROM space... So my thought w...

Hey all - I know some of the answers will be "use this other assembler"...so we'll skip those for a moment. :-) Recently I was inquiring about getting specific strings, and was shown the EQU opcode. It works like a charm for the purpose I needed. To extend the question, though, does anyone...

Okay - I think my brain needs a bourbon break for a few days........ ME: Man! No matter what I do I can't seem to curb the slowdown problem. I didn't even have this much of an issue with Mystic Origins, and was a much more dense mess of spaghetti code! I've tried bit masking and lists and every othe...

Yeah - I see the logic in what you're saying. But I guess what I'm thinking is...rather than checking every object against every object (16*15, 15*14, 14*13...etc), instead I'd be doing a quick run through a single time to see where to put the objects, and then running them against each other (monOb...

Good notes. I meant effectively creating tables every frame. Rather than cycling through, seeing "yes, this should hurt monsters", and then evaluating every object to see if it's a monster, start by creating a table of weapons and a table of monsters, and then just comparing them against e...
