Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

I am still working on this, occasionally. . . Wrote a MIDI file to assembly converter that spits out a tune in time, note, volume, on|off format which I can use to add a bit of music to the game; there's loads of free MIDI files of copyright-free music out there. Just started on the playback routine...

Re: I built an arcade joystick

Heh, nice, just needs a proper case though, I don't think that'd survive a full round of Daley Thompson's Decathlon!

You can get something laser cut out of plywood or other for not very much these days.
(That reminds me, I really should finish the nixie clock I've been building forever)

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Minor update as I'm back at work today and have had other things to sort out like putting Ikea furniture together... also it's been too hot to do anything really. But I have sprites! Well, a sprite. He's just sitting there, statically, at a fixed screen position right now. At least I have almost all...

Re: No Man's Sky!!!11111

I've got it on PS4 so probably won't be multiplayering with anyone on Steam soon, knowing Sony...
I'm also not bothered by multiplayer, and it doesn't look that different to me as far as I can remember it. If it's still as monotonous as before then I'm not interested...

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

I got joystick reading in so I can now scroll around the map... sprites next! And some sort of audio, presumably. The PC Engine has IMHO a very nice chiptune sound with its six "wavetable" channels but I'm not exactly a sound expert so I'll see what I can get out of it. Sound effects should be easie...

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Looks like you're getting somewhere! What does MAS stand for? I've been on holiday so not got much done for obvious reasons. But I came home early. Just got it scrolling through the map left-to-right then back again. Joypad reading doesn't work yet. I must be missing something here. There are no rea...

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Looking pretty good there!
I'm not going to do anything over the next two weeks as I am AFK in Spain., without a computer. What a nightmare!

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

Looking pretty sweet there! As for my own efforts, OK, tileset knocked together in GIMP, check.... Python script to convert tileset and palette to assembly source, check... Map knocked together in tiled using the above tileset, check... Python script to convert the map into tile values, check.... PC...
