I'm WAITING to see if I like the game. BTW I'm not advertising, I'm ranting, mildly. I feel your pain. I can only recommend SkipScreen or some other addon at present to make the waiting easier. Thanks everyone for the nice words about the game (so far). BTW, nobody asked, but the reason I haven't r...

.NET let me down. I had downloaded and printed lots of nice articles about VB6, then when I went to order VB6 I was told they had stopped selling it and I would get VB7 instead. I assumed the articles would still hold up. Instead I received VB .NET, which was nothing like it whatsoever, AND there we...

Open the program and type this:

Code: Select all

/'

'/

Then copy and paste some text information into the space between. Base that information on the content of the powerpoint.

Alternates to BLOAD/BSAVE could be made quite easily, which would load/save the image data in an entirely different order, rendering the picture unreadable by any other program. Generally, switching or reversing X and Y would be part of it, but my take on such a project would include switching/rever...

Hmmm. Quite some interesting and innovative alternates to my methods. Of course 1000 is a lot of switches, but such things are to be expected if you're keeping track of which events were triggered or which treasure chests were opened. I had 5000 switches in my last RPG Maker XP project. I don't mind...

Switches!

I was frustrated at not having a "Bit" variable type, and didn't want byte switches, so I set up some switch routines. Anyone with games that use a lot of switches (RPGs especially) might find this useful. On the other hand, it won't save all that many bytes. :) /'TestSwitches2 Destructosoft v1.000 ...

Love the size 24 tiles on this. Would like to see the developer try his hand at size 32, but it looks plenty good. Can't wait to try this out.

Thanks for all the work you did on this great series of articles! It has shown me a lot of things in improving my own Roguelike which I've been making for years now.

Sadly, some of these things are along the lines of "What NOT to do", but overall these are very informative and helpful.

Sometimes not backupping* data can get you into trouble, sure, but it isn't always the kind of trouble away from which you can get merely by recoding the project. I once coded a dungeon crawler on my Apple II. It had PERFECT gameplay and balance. Then I accidentally saved the demo mode program with ...

I only code FB on my old retired comps, mostly P4s from the first half of the last decade. I used to use an old P3 laptop, but I got sick of its many problems and junked it last year.
