Cheers buddy - music is being sorted.

Only a short update just to say I've plugged in the scoring system. Most of the collisions are mapped with the exception of the special and extra coins. There's a couple of bugs here and there but nothing to worry about.

Over the weekend I'll add the sprite link so after you collect something it will show the points being added to the score.

Here's the video update. Enjoy.

Ok i did start to draft the in-game songs; want to use a similar approach to rygar using fixed song pattern positions: main loop, P running around, bonus time, level complete, bomb bonus, S bonus, game over; are you able to handle it? In case you can ask some help to sandruzzo.

I want to leave high score tunes separated if possible; if instead you want to have it in the in-game music files let me know.

Am also using microinstruments to keep files light in size.

Why not make an original tune for the beginning in stile Sales Curve? (i did the same for Rygar, hoping one day will be published)

Yep - Seems like a good approach, technically I don't know yet but I can't see it being much of an issue to work out.

I might have a stab at a few of the tunes anyway as it looks like an interesting exercise...

Great update this one - only a few bug fixes done, still plenty more to do though.

This update though is all about the music, and a massive thanks to Saimon69 for building the Bombjack tunes. This video update shows only a few of the tunes implemented with more to come - an outstanding job.

Also a huge thanks to WayneK, StingRay and PHX with helping me track down a stupid code/typo error I had in the mod player.

The Protracker player is adding a bit of CPU time in places so I need to have another optimsation session, also for some reason the dev environment crashes after a little while after I use the player routine, quite hard to track down that one as it isn't obvious what is going on.

Enjoy!

Are you shutting down the replayer properly? I will bet money the interrupt for the music replayer is still active and hasnt been restored back to the system address.

Indeed I was shutting down the player in the wrong order, seems to have stabalised things massively.

Small update this one I'm afraid, been busy with family stuff - wife, kid and all are priority.

Well after spending about 2 hours trying to understand why the hardware sprites were not appearing on the display I eventually figured out it was due to play field display priority - school boy error and me not reading the HRM properly. The other bits were the oddities of using the lower and upper bits of sprite VSTART, VSTOP and HSTART - I guess if you code you'll know what I mean.

Anyway for this update I've added the little sequence that happens when Jack collects the E(xtra) token and he gets an extra life. Part of the sprite is broken but all the code is there to make it work... just a small bug.

Was having a think today and I probably need to swap around the bitplanes of the scene and the sprites. Why you might ask? It's because it dawned on me that by doing so I'd get 4 free extra sprites, but to do so I need to ensure the colours are in the right place. Amiga sprites use the last 16 colours in the colour registers for sprites, currently mine is using those for the display. Probably looking at a good 6 hours work to do it. It's one of those things I can hold off on though as part of a mammoth optimisation session.

Hope you enjoy this small update, enjoy the video.
