"Curvy text takes advantage of the 8x's series' ability to do a limited amount of calculus using the nDeriv( function. By plotting the points of a vertical line along the opposite reciprocal of the function's derivative at a given point, text is distorted such that it appears to conform to the function in question. This strategy can be applied in a number of ways, such as drawing curved interfaces and distorting shapes for a cool effect in games or graphics programs. -- Jon Pezzino"
Rivereye, the RPG started out as a need for a new programming project and the the thought on interesting I could make something like this. I declared the possibility of the project in mid December on Omnimaga, for I figured that would be the best place to start. People lent me ideas and support and I started coding. Not long after, I had the first walking engine. The rendering was really slow, but character moved really fast. I continued working on that until everything was as fast as I could make it. Then I started on the battle engine. When I finished the first beta, my calculator had crashed and for a while, the project had died. Then time started to free up for me and I rebuilt the battle engine, many times faster. Currently right now, the working of integrating spells is being worked on, soon followed by shops, talking, and other triggers. Then I will move into actually interesting the story line.
As with anything, one should learn as he moves, and I have learned much. I have worked on many optimizations and rewriting of code to get the perfect balance of speed and size. Also, more advanced programming has been enlightened unto me, which will be a benefit in the future.
For those interested in tracking the progress of this project, you can visit either the Rivereye Studios at http://www.rivereye.net/projects.php and http://www.rivereye.net/forums or the Omnimaga forum at http://omnimaga.dyndns.org/index.php?showforum=138. The latest version can be found at http://www.rivereye.net/battle.zip. Any help anyone can give will be very much appreciated.
