I think a .bin file is a compressed file. At least,thats what it always is when I have one. Try to expand it.

but what fun is that? i mean with 12x12, u have MORE detail, but not quite perfect! if someone makes a good 12x12 sprite of sonic THAT U CAN TELL WHAT IT IS(!) then i might be persuaded...

I really think we should 8x8 tiles for the background (please agree with me on this!). It's way easier to create a tilemap routine for it, plus it will allow for a little more variety in scenery. (I believe 12x8 is perfect for maps)

As for using 12x12 sprites for the characters, I just looked into making a sprite routine for it. Now, it isn't IMPOSSIBLE but it would take a LOT of working (bit shifting across 3 bytes when there isn't a 3 byte register combo doesn't appeal to me that much). Maybe we should explore our options with 8x8 and 16x16 character sprites. Neutral Hey, if this is the same Cyan that's doing Metroid, I'm not worried about what he can do Smile

Anyway, thanks for the routine James. I'll look over it and see what we could do.

O,it doesnt matter to me,what size it is,as long as its detailed,and easily reconized,prob 16x16 now that i think about it,but its up to u guys,so far i think we are leaning to 16x16
and 8x8 on the backround,is good with me,il trust ya Razz

ok, 8x8 sprites for the bg would be awesome, cause u combine them into 16x16! Many different combos, say u have 8 8x8 sprs, that is 32 combos i think... sounds good! anything is possible that way!

16x16 is still my choice for the char...

I'm just getting a feel for how tile-scrolling works. It's still new to me. James, do you have any ideas on how to modify it to make it smooth-scrolling? I think I might look at the source for Mario and see how they did it. Just let me know when you want to start working on the engine.

Well, we really need to meet at an IRC room sometime.
BTW, does Cyan visit the board often? Maybe he forgot he was doing this, Smile

Well, there's lots of things that need to be done, but a couple things are based on the completion of other things. We need to get an 8-way smooth scrolling engine down before we do much anything else.

Perhaps you could work on the the GUI for menus and such. I guess you could come up with your own design and present it.

Sure. I'll take that assignment. Any specific things you want in the menus, or ideas, or ideas of what might be in them? A menu with a picture of each item might have to be different than a menu with only text.

Jeff- I was thinking that we'd have a splash screen at the beginning (I don't know if James is still working on that or not). Then it'd cut to a menu:
Play
Difficulty - (I don't know if we'll do different difficulty levels)
About (Credits)
Exit

Are you proficient in asm? Maybe we can have an animated selector to spice things up.
