Well, Project M kinda died a while ago when my calc got completely cleared. But recently I've been working on an animated tilemapper for a new game. Enter screenshot:

That 45 at the end was the average frames per second. :D

As you may have guessed, this is not Mario Bros. Classic. Updates will come when they come.

No, he is saying that Project M was going to be a port of the original Mario Brothers. This new project is a port of Super Mario Brothers.

I was chatting to calc84maniac about his mapper on irc, i was very impressed by his work Smile.

The *new* Project M is set to be pretty sweet Very Happy.

Nice tilemapper.

Just wondering, you're using images in a way that it looks unalligned in a sense? (the wall thing)

In curiousity, which method are you using: the one where you copy the matrix to the screen every time, or the scroll direction then fill in the end pixels (if so then you're probably also using clipped sprites)?




(Haha, i'm also working on a tile mapper, except mine uses the most inefficient routines possible *cough* my special code writing skills *cough* Very Happy)

Yeah this looks awesome I have always wanted to modify mario but herer you go and make a new one yourself I would love to see tubes added in a new version. they managed to pull that off in Mario86 which is also grayscale though some of the sprites are a little off. I also like the fact that you made virticle scrolling that will make alot of games posible to make.

You mean the brick sprite looks interesting?

I'm copying the matrix each time, it would be hard to do animations otherwise. ;)

Maybe, but I'm not going to try.

Yeah, the pipes have been in the plan all along. Smile

This might not be a specific port of Super Mario Bros 1, though. I'm thinking about including features from the other ones as well, like the P block that changes bricks to coins and coins to bricks, and also powerups besides mushrooms and flowers, etc.

Erm, is that "slower" then the other method or similar?... I've never actually known which method was better. Surprised

looks sweet. Is it in basic or asm? (hopefully the latter, but if it's basic, that's amazing!)

Why do you hope it's in assembly code? The important thing is how well the program works, and from the screenshot it looks like it works very well so far. Given that assumption, the language is irrelevant. And remember that neither language is superior - they're just different.

One of the benefits to it being assembly is that it would be a much smaller program, and would not need to use libraries like xLib. I do think that calcmaniac said that it was in asm though...

I don't know why, but I tend to prefer ASM games (at least partly, if not all). I don't know why, because both languages has well written and poorly written games. ASM games just generally strike me as having superior quality when written properly (whether true or not).
