No, haven't made any of those. I'm not really a graphics guy, but I help when I can.

Er, hi, I was at Boy Scout camp for the week, earned Swimming, Archery, Wilderness Survival, Space Exploration, and didn't even think about how to do the menu, but I'll be back on task for a week, before leaving for another week. Nice sprite. I'll look at the Ion libs tomorrow, and work on coding monday.

Well, here are a few updates: I finished rewriting a tilemapping routine, so writing a scrolling one shouldn't be too much harder, plus I made some sprites and tiles to work with.


The first one shows to sprites that could be used in sonic's running animation (with circulating legs), and the other one shows some tiles I created to test my tile map routine.

What do you guys think?

Unfortunately not, since grayscale would slow down the game way too much.

KEWL,
Send the engine that smooth scolls when u are done with it john and any graphics as well.I think we are going to stay with black and white graphics for now,but if there is some way that we can get a decent amount of speed with greyscale than,we might do it on the sequal(if there is one?).

Sweet Very Happy

the sequel? the expansion Smile new experience in grayscale... IF we can get enuf speed... if we use a HUGE delay in b/w, then we switch to grayscale, and lower the delay a little!

I'll be working a lot on the engine these next few days, I don't know when I'll be done, though.

If you didn't notice, those tiles were inspired by Green Hill Zone Act 1 Very Happy
I plan to draw some trees and other stuff too.

I have a suggestion for this game. Since the majority of the time sonic will be moving faster horizontally than he would vertically, I would flip the virtual screen by 90 degrees. IIRC, you send a certain byte out port 10h to "rotate" the screen. The reason for this is that when doing smooth scrolling, it is much easier and faster to move all the data in one ldir or lddr as the case may be (rather than a long series of rr (hl) \ inc hl or rl (hl) \ dec hl). This way you could scroll horizontally in jumps of 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 (etc) pixels at a time with almost no decrease in speed (except for the extra time it takes to populate the new lines). Post over at maxcoderz if you have questions.
