Hi Graham,

Sorry for butting in here (and I still haven't had much chance to really get started on following your progress yet), but I can answer this one for you.

I assume that \y is an integer variable, right?

Well, the MOD function is a bit like divide, but the result is the remainder.

So, \y MOD 2=0 when \y is even, but =1 when \y is odd.

8 MOD 3=2, 11 MOD 4=3, etc.

EDIT: Hey, dazzleman was offline when I started posting!

Better use "AND 1" to determine if a number is odd or even, it'll probably be faster.

It was cut from the aleady drawn game title screen, I hope you will like it as Graham will finally implement it to the game.

First post on this thread. Hoping that my sound fx are what Graham is after.

Just to add to the diary of the game, I used Animoog synth on the iPad to design the sounds. Very typical collectable sounds, something you'd find on anything from Rainbow Islands to Uridium 2. Animoog is a fantastic synth, up there with my hardware synths in fact far more accessible due to the touch screen of the iPad. Overall leant itself to this type of sound.

Having looked at the Jag version on Youtube I see that the sound fx are a bit Minter-esque with their offkey nature. Weird vocals. Like the music however.

Yes, if you make the music it has to be hard and or fast bit of techno. Nothing airy fairy!!

I haven't tried the game and I don't know Blitz Basic, but had a look at the code the other day and I thought the same thing about loading levels from txt files. I know how to load text from text files into AmigaBASIC and it might be similar for Blitz Basic and could give you code I use in AmigaBASIC if you want it, it might be easy to modify for use in Blitz BASIC.

Could anyone try to test this file?

link removed

I tried to create ADF of Downfall, but I have not WinUAE installed, so please try anybody and tell me if it works.

In the meantime I think you ought to remove the link as we are, of course, not allowed to distribute such material

To save a bit of time here's my ADF that I put together for the current version (WIP5). It self-boots and should run on any config. It only contains the essential files (so no .iff files and no source code) due to the fact I only quickly cobbled it together.

If you already have the .lha archive working then don't bother with this, there's nothing new here at all, it's literally just a floppy version of the last WIP I uploaded. But if you can't get it to work this might do the trick.

I don't know if you want to load your levels from text files and allow users to modify them but this is my example of AmigaBASIC code for reading in text from file, I use a slight variation on this for reading in highscores in my next game. You might be able to modify it to use in Blitz Basic if you want to load your levels from text files and allow users to modify them.

Example of file TOH

100,90,80,70,60,50,40,30,20,10


' CODE FOR IN PROGRAM

Code:
' ARRAY TO STORE SCORES
DIM SCOREZ (10)

' OPEN FILE "TOH" FOR READING
OPEN "TOH" FOR INPUT AS 1

' LOOP TO READ IN AMOUNT OF SCORES
FOR COUNT = 1 TO 10

  ' READ INPUT FROM OPEN FILE 1 INTO ARRAY
  INPUT# 1, SCOREZ (COUNT)

NEXT

' CLOSE FILE 1
CLOSE 1

I will link your video to the Downfall site. Funny how the rhythm of the tune influenced your movement

I have a problem, maybe it is only my feeling: the copperlist is in overscan, but the main game area is only 320 pixels wide. So if the platworm is next to left or right area border, player is not able to jump to the side, although copper creates an illusion that there is still enough space.

The overscan copper effect is nice and I like it, but I am not sure if it doesnt confuse player much. Maybe 1px wide black vertical lines where I drawn those red ones would solve it? Or it is not necessary? What do you think?

Aga version is planned, I think it could have landscapes easily. This one is 16 cols only, it would be probably ugly.
