Now you can spray paint the walls.
Spray painting one wall gives you +1 juice. (Juice is the equivalent to exp.)
It's the lowest amount of juice you can obtain, and the most tedious.

Next up:
-Inventory management.
-Guns and ammo
-Implementing encounters.
-Base of operations and safe havens.

Is anyone planning to buy the new SNES Classic? Personally I am reluctant, especially that the Sega Genesis re-release will have a cartridge slot and not the SNES Classic, but it comes with 30 games and even Star Fox 2 is included. I wonder if they'll make more than 300 copies this time around...

Anyone else have ideas for disappearing tricks?
Browsing codewalus/cemetech. All your time magically disappears ;)

Put a hat on it, as people are smart, and also attach a fishing line to the top of the facade and through a hole in the gravestone so you can "magically" raise it up and re-appear
I don't wear a hat, but if I do it right, I could see a way to take my jacket off and throw it over to make the thing fall. That effect could be interesting.

About the fishing line, I could do that, but I'd also have to not do that thing with the jacket.


Not a hat you wear, a hat as in a top to the container!
The container that has me? Where would this top go?

I would say make the dark gray area a little wider than the light gray area in that picture, so when the "gravestone" falls down, people aren't able to clearly see the divide in the cardboard.

Calc Projects, Programming & Tutorials / Re: Using OS Pic Variables
« Last post by ben_g on Today at 12:26:42 pm »
...[Pic1r] ->Pointer...
...Copy(Pointer,L6)...
[Pic1r] -> pointer will store the OS pic variable in 8x8 chunks that can then be drawn using the Pt-on( command (or at least that's how I understand it from the command list). It has to move some bytes around for that since OS Pic variables aren't stored in 8x8 chunks. Copying that directly to the screen will then show what's basically a scrambled version of your image.

If you just write it as [Pic1] -> pointer then it should add the OS Pic variable in the program memory as-is, and using it with Copy(Pointer,L6) should show it on the screen. The bottom row may still look weird though, Pic variables store only 63 rows while the screen is 64 pixels tall. Copying it to the screen will also copy the 12 bytes of data after that to the screen. A simple workaround is to add that last row manually, like this:

Code: [Select]
:[Pic1]->Pointer
:[000000000000000000000000]
Which will store an extra white row at the bottom. Use F instead of 0 if you want a black row instead.

I want to do a disappearing act at the end of a performance I'm doing on July 4th. The desired effect of the trick is that I somehow disappear from the stage. What are the easiest/least expensive methods that I could feasibly do, without anything like trapdoors in the stage?

The stage is elevated off the ground a few feet, and it 's closed off from the sides. There are no curtains, or ways that I can escape the stage save for some obvious staircases on the sides.

Here is the most practical idea I've come up with: a cardboard gravestone, with a trick to it. The red ball represents me. Pardon my use of MS Paint.
