Title: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: tr1p1ea on February 08, 2015, 06:49:05 am
I thought that I might start a mock-up thread since they are always interesting :).

Here is the one I posted in DJ's other thread. This is a simple xLIBC demo of a concept DJ posted a few months ago:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Ftr1p1ea.net%2Ffiles%2Fdownloads%2Fscreenshots%2Fxprizm1.gif&hash=a9991e30a0fa62146d373670575ea7d3)

I wonder how speed compare with 8x8 sprites? Also those tiles came up very well in 16x16. Did you have to edit them manually?
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: tr1p1ea on February 08, 2015, 11:23:55 pm
The sprite speed should be a lot faster if the main character was 8x8 as opposed to 16x16. I do have another test that has the sprite change direction + walking animation as well.

I resized the tiles manually just in an image editor and did some *minor* cleanup, For an actual project more care would be taken with the sprites etc. I should note that the tiles are still 8x8 but the map just lays them out in 16x16 ... there is a benefit that some parts of different tiles are the same, so those redundant tiles are removed.

I might see what an 8x8 hero looks like :).

Aah ok. Honestly this character really looks cool at that resolution. Maybe I should re-use more graphics from RPG Maker XP and VX in the future :P


For xLIBCE, what would be cool is if graphics were stored inside a picture instead of sprite sheet and if it was possible to draw them like this:

With scaling support: real(666,ScreenXOffset, ScreenYOffset, WidthOfDisplay, HeightOfDisplay, PicVarName, SpriteXOffset, SpriteYOffset, Width, Height, TransparentColor, UpdateLCD)

Without scaling support: real(667,ScreenXOffset, ScreenYOffset, PicVarName, SpriteXOffset, SpriteYOffset, Width, Height, TransparentColor, UpdateLCD)


In comparison, here is the syntax on the HP Prime:

BLIT_P(SpriteDestination, ScreenXStart, ScreenYStart, ScreenXEnd, ScreenYEnd, SpriteSource, SpriteXStart, SpriteYStart, SpriteXEnd, SpriteYEnd, TransparentColor)

Of course you could use ScreenEnd instead of width/height so it's closer to HP PPL too. Note that HP PPL allows you to display graphics in 10 different buffers including the LCD itself and those buffers (except the LCD) can be any size. Scaling on the CE would be slow, though.

Yeah sprite scaling on the CSE is probably going to be too slow - It *might* be a possibility on the new ez80 CE calcs however.

I very quickly resized some other sprites to use to show the character moving in different directions (note some of the pixels are borked).

I also had these graphics lying around - I got the tiles from somewhere, and the character I was looking at some rougelike 8x8 sprites and animated my own :). I literally made this this afternoon with very minimal coding required - xLIBC Zelda walking demo!!!

Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 09, 2015, 08:52:44 pm
I love that Zelda mockup :D


Also the larger CE RAM will give us much more freedom for map size. I absolutely wanted Reuben CSE to be scrolling because the original maps were made to fit in 12x8 and cannot be adapted for 20x15. However, I had to split maps in small chunks (sometimes 4 chunks per area) because I couldn't fit them in the RAM when unloaded. Unless the future DCS for CE limits the size of programs that the copy file to RAM command can handle (I know there's a limit for single line of code copy), then maps of any size will probably be useable.

EDIT: Here are mockups of what could be Illusiat PRIZM maps:

They are entirely based on Illusiat TI-81 remake.

This one is a style test, the characters will pretty much look like this.

Well, the game takes place in a magic school, and people gifted with magic have a horn just like unicorns (instead of having a wand just like Harry Potter or something). Also Twilight Sparkle may or may not appear in that game that is by the way not officially related to MLP, she's just there for reference. Actually, some concepts are inspired from MLP, such as magic and some characters being related to the sun and the moon, but otherwise it's your average mahou shoujo anime.

Is it a game that you are making or do you mean another game? Looks nice by the way, although since I am used to the pony skin color it kinda feels a little weird with the natural human skin colors :P
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas

Yeah, it's the game/visual novel I'm making, although I'm not doing the art.
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 05, 2015, 08:22:08 pm
Aah ok. Is it for a school project? I forgot. I know a visual novel recently came out for the Sega Genesis (see the Pier Solar topic) and quite a lot comes out for the PS3 and PSVita. I am definitively curious if visual novels would be popular on calcs? The issue with calcs is that menu-based games had a very bad reputation in the past because they flooded ticalc archives, but that was before visual novels became really popular. Maybe with actual graphics it could work.
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: Duke "Tape" Eiyeron on March 05, 2015, 09:04:13 pm
There seemed to were a good visual novel for CSE IIRC. With goods graphics and all the thing.

They should so take some shades in creepiness to belong to a Castlevania. This would be something like "My First Castlevania" with Dracula having safety caps on his fangs.

The backwards facing sprites are intended as a wall climbing animation. First frame of it also could be used for entering doors.

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 09, 2015, 04:25:15 am
@Cumred Changeable colors would probably be doable on the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition using xLIBC, but you can only rotate through the color palette, not change individual colors. On the HP Prime it could be possible, although pre-rendering the differently colored tiles might take a while at the start of the program.

@LD ah I see. I thought that one of the frame sets was actually facing south.

Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: Duke "Tape" Eiyeron on March 09, 2015, 06:02:48 pm
Tilmappers are easy to do once you get the principe behind them. YOu're just blitting images in a grid and the hardest part in a tilemapper is only to find the region to draw (to avoid drawing the whole level for a small screen)
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: Snektron on March 09, 2015, 06:07:05 pm
i don't have a color calc either, but maybe i'll do some android app.

When doing physics class a few days back i got an idea for a game.
Something where you build a particle accelerator: you can place blocks like emitters,
detectors and accelerators, connecting them with some kind of wire. When particles collide at a high enough speed they fuse it to
a higher tier particle, and when they go in some kind of other block (or maybe collide with the same particles which are
flying in the opposite direction), they generate some kind tokens with which you can buy better blocks (for example emitting a higher
tier particle).

On a side note, those tiles could very well be used in a Mario game too. :P You would need to add some extra tiles like question blocks, a dark background and enemies, but it would definitively be doable.

Also the floor in the square mockup reminds me a little bit of Super Walrii Land floors :P

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 24, 2015, 03:52:54 am
Ok thanks for the info. :) I wonder how fast parallax scrolling would be with Ndless. With the HP Prime in order to get speed you must pre-render parallax frames, else with that many layers it would get as slow as Nspire OS 3.1 Lua. But with everything pre-rendered it's blazing fast.


EDIT: I just had a weird idea: What about a Flappy Bird clone with many parallax layers, but where the layers scrolls the wrong way with the farthest layer scrolling faster? That would probably add to the difficulty XD (one SNES game called Jim Power did that)

Actually I had such idea in mind a while ago, although more as a level in Super Walrii Land. You could move in all directions while flying but the stage would scroll constantly and the layout would be similar to Flappy Bird and all obstacles replaced with spikes.

Quote from: Cumred_Snektron on March 24, 2015, 03:22:09 pm

Yes, although I noticed on an actual CRT TV it's not that bad. I played the SNES game that did that and it actually looks cool. On a computer, though, it seems worse.

That game came with special 3D glasses too.

Yeah it was very simple though, with barely anything moving. I need to check how we do such thing. I know the HP Prime supports polygons with transparency so maybe I could attempt something with that one day...

Otherwise I can always create sprites or tilemaps that take advantage of such glasses. I think the glasses that came with the Jim Power game were not cyan red, though.

This is an old mockup of what could Hexatron's hybrid BASIC color remake of Illusiat 11 could have looked like with some extra color enhancements:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmockup2.png&hash=d0e5c3e67a697d2db6a610fede49b229) (https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmockup3.png&hash=ef3f329a1e7087d7138eacd993318ff8)

Unfortunately, like all three previous Illusiat 11 remake projects, this one never came to fruition either.

The game tried to stick to the original map grid as much as possible, hence why it's not full screen. An Illusiat 6-7-style HUD was added on the side.

I assume that somebody could just do like some Dragon Slayer games or Shining in the Darkness and put the HUD around the screen or both at the bottom and right. The top could have the dungeon name, the right would have HP/MP/Exp/LV and the bottom some items/equipment, but it would depend of the game.

Wow I really love the tree background. If you ever do the spells in a menu like that I'd suggest that you lower the size of them if its turn based. Otherwise I'd suggest an overlay when you press a button ( basically like alpha as b on ti 84 ).

Sorry if that's confusing. On a ti 84 2nd is usually attack and alpha is usually 2nd attack.

I would use flame sprites for it. For the title screen logo I would probably use three different flames at least. The characters that would be replaced would most likely be the ones in VARS->Statistics . Of course this idea would not work if the font must remain in RAM, though.

Shouts (or "words of power")  are words in the dovah language one can master with very long training, though the dragonborn van learn them very easily, because he is a mortal with the soul of a dragon. In skyrim you play as a dragonborn, and thus you can learn various shouts. You can learn shouts to push things, burn things, view ebemys through walls and much more.

Ooh ok I see now lol. This reminds me Final Fantasy II for the NES/Famicom where you could learn certain key words then ask NPCs about them. It was much more primitive, but when I first played the game I was shocked that this feature was in it, since most FF games afterward didn't have it.

On a side note, I should really do mockups of what FF:MF could look like on the HP Prime. I am tempted to just re-use the same tiles as my mockups above, but with extra colors and some slight changes such as the bottom of the doors. Or I could also add an ASCII art mode. In any case, the menu borders would be different.

Thanks guys. Some of them did turn out Zelda-like. They are actually loosely based on stripped down versions of houses from Crystalis. They started off from another project that was using 16x16 tiles, but they got shrunk down to this and modified to account for the smaller space (8x8). Here's are the 16x16 ones i was originally using: Also, funny enough, both styles of houses are from Crystalis (see second attachment for the original nes game).

Post by: c4ooo on August 13, 2015, 12:33:19 am
My idea was to take many screen shots of the game and then animate them. They would be scrolled around, or replaced with others, all to simulate a 3D feel. So for example you could have a big "grass" shot . As the character walked forward it would be scrolled forward, and as the user panned it would pan in that direction. In infinity blade the moment is very limited. In fact, you can only control your characters movement when in battle (and when deciding which way to go, but with the click of a button). Screen panning is also limited to like 5 degrees, so IMO no real 3D is needed for most parts.

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on August 13, 2015, 05:38:15 am
This sounds like Time Commando for the Playstation 1 and PC, if anyone remembers that. The game graphics looked so advanced for the time because the landscape was basically a video that played as you walked across the map. Everything was pre-rendered that way. But I bet that took a lot of space on the disc. I am curious about how they did the masking, though (maybe some secondary alpha layer?).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdvjO33uN6M

If you can use compression that would be good because grayscale images can be quite large. But decompressing certain images might be slow. You could still allow the player to move left and right depending of how the decor allows it, but only within the screen range, as the game would only scroll in the direction of the animation or its opposite.


Something you could do to save space is make the HUD larger and do like Gemini 3D: Only use a small area of the screen for the gameplay area. Or if you use the HP Prime you could just use a lower resolution and scale the images up.


Those grayscale pics look nice by the way! :)

I was curious about what my 2006 TI-84+ xLIB game would look like in color so I decided to do a mockup of the first and second areas (based on the 2007 expansion) with new tiles:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmetroid2stariamapscrn2.png&hash=049c779d2e6cae36109d28cf641e23f3)

And a quick edit with a colored HUD slapped on it:
(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmetroid2evocolormockup.png&hash=8e31ab31a97fc8809df23831e0f5b5fe)

This is how it could look like if ported to the HP Prime. Scaled up graphics, but since the original maps were supposed to be 12x8, I decided to make the game 12x9 instead of hiding the top row of tiles like in the original game. The HUD pretty much uses the same color scheme as in Super Metroid (the shield represents energy tanks, hence why it's pink)

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on August 29, 2015, 08:17:07 pm
Thanks. I don't know if it will happen, but an HP Prime remake would definitively be cool. Gameplay would most likely remain similar in style, but with smoother movement. I'm still curious about how I would do camera movement, though, to ensure that the screen stops scrolling when you reach an hatch or centers itself between two hatches (while making sure Samus remains in the screen).

Here is another mockup by the way, this time from Inferna:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmetroid2evocolormockup2.png&hash=17f2792aa45f23125ad9a1fe484cda23)

If this game ever gets ported, it will probably be renamed back to Diortem, its original name from 2005, which is basically Metroid spelled backwards. I wonder if @Keoni29 would be interested in making a computer game based on this :P (although there is already one called Minitroid IIRC)
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: CKH4 on August 29, 2015, 08:25:57 pm
Ah that one is cool too. For the camera you could do blank padding but in my opinion that isn't as good as having the character move to the edge of the screen with the camera stopping. It requires a lot more code though.
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on August 29, 2015, 09:06:28 pm
The issue with this game is that certain portions of maps can stop scrolling earlier than others, for example the middle hatch in the first area where the spaceship is is placed 12 pixels to the left compared to the two other entrances. Basically, I have to make sure that in the middle of the map, the camera will stop scrolling earlier than other portions of the area.

Anyway, I have finished converting the entire game map into colors:

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on August 29, 2015, 09:46:12 pm
Yeah I wish that xLIB had compression back then. Metroid II is like 120 KB including xLIB >.<. It should not be a problem on the HP Prime, but it would still take a bit of space.
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas

Ouch thats a lot. Of course the prime continues to show up other calcs in terms of specs (but the coding userbase is still small :(). I don't think that game would fin on the 84+ CSE because of size though. XLIBC sprites are huge (compared to their tiny monochrome friends).

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on August 29, 2015, 10:09:39 pm
It would probably fit on the CSE, but it would run even slower than the original. Also, since xLIB uses 160x120 resolution, the game would only take a small portion of the screen unless I adapted maps for a larger screen, which would be a considerable amount of work. The HP Prime allows any resolution so that would not be a major issue.

Yep. I'm not sure if I'll get an HP Prime until college though (maybe HP fixes stuff before then) so hopefully more content. If you do "port" (or whatever) that to the prime that might get lots more people interested in it. Especially if it works as well as the mockups look.

THe HP Prime got much better since the last two versions, but I agree that there are still some quirks to be fixed. And I doubt Metroid would attract as many people as Zelda/Mario since it seems much less popular. But we never know. What I like is that the game graphics would still have the feel from older calc models, but with colors.

Post by: CKH4 on August 30, 2015, 01:10:58 am
Well maybe we can find a c clone of one of those games and port it to the prime. What I'd really want to see though is smash. It could definitely handle it.
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on August 30, 2015, 01:28:27 am
Yeah it would, by far. You could probably even add pseudo 3D or parallax scrolling and it would still run fast, plus you get the benefits from sprite scaling/zooming

Maybe a Super Smash :walrii: game?
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: CKH4 on August 30, 2015, 02:12:48 am
Not sure what the attacks would be but yeah that would be cool. Would pc c code be compatible with the HP prime without any changes?
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on August 30, 2015, 02:24:18 am
Nope, because the HP Prime doesn't support C yet (although if someone wanted to he could write a third-party OS that does since there's isn't much protection against third-party OSes). However, the HP PPL language (which looks a bit like Pascal and TI-BASIC) would do the job perfectly and you can use the emulator with WAIT(.016); commands at the end of every loop to test your programs.

here is a mockup for a mirage os like shell:

The weird lighting effect are caused because the camera and my lamp are not 100% synced 60 hertz. (its called the rolling shutter effect). The effect would bot be so noticeable if there was a second light source like the sun, or if the lamp was not a foot from the calculator.

I know it maybe hard, but i plan to take the best of all three shells. The file system will be compatible with doorsCS, so if my shell does not provide a feture that doors does, you can just hop between the shell and all your folder and files will be there. The ui, as you see, will be similar to mirageOS, although some ui stuff will be unique. I dont realy know what unique fetures i will add yet, as i dont know wether this will be aimed at programers or regular users. (probably the first due to the fact that i did not go with a doors like ui.)
But then again, this is after all a mockup, and not a solid project like lazer.

Well, not rely. The vat, as you may know, serves tios as a look up table for files. A few bytes in a vat entry tell the location of the file, some the file type, and others spell the file's name. There is one byte in each vat entry that does seemingly nothing. Doors uses this byte to store the file's location in the folder structure. For every folder created, doors also creates a hidden file called "%FLDn" where "n" is the folder's id. The file contains the name of the folder. Because the folder file has a vat header, it can be easily placed within other folders. Hope this makes sense :D

Edit: It was hard for me to do this, but i decided not to make a shell. In the end, i will have to try very hard just to get a shell that can be compared to mirage or doorscs, and latter's ui seems to be preferred anyway. :(

Oh I was sure that the folders were stored inside the appvar. I hope that RAM clears can't erase our folders like with Mirage.

Yeah, aqu-wars was color. But I liked 123outerme's concept and tried to do something similar. I've made like 30 different 8x8 sprites and tiles and put them into my C code by hand (in hexadecimal). One shouldn't hardcode :P (I don't hardcode sprites anymore).

As well, here is a gif of a Scratch project (unshared, and unplanned to be in the contest, don't worry) I am working on to plan out my game. I've added random obstacles in the form of mines, the same kinds from the animation in the CW promo video. This minus the background is also how far I've come along on-calc (except I've implemented collisions on-calc).

Shoot, I made that sleigh sloppily. You really had to do that to your walrii? :P

And thanks. My entire point of doing that was to envision it for the calc platform. It would look awesome! Plus, some Santa-believers (or people who want to humor the people who DO believe in Santa) could show this off to others, and they'd be pretty freaking stunned.

Indeed I had to do it, thanks to our modified Rule 34 :P

As for Santa believing I feel it's more to entertain kids and make them behave during holidays. Over here we were sometimes told that if we misbehaved during holidays, then Santa would not bring us gifts. Also there was always one family member wearing a Santa Claus costume during CHristmas eve and he was in charge of giving presents. It would definitively be a cool Christmas game, though :)

Of course. However, there are still some adults (and even high-schoolers) that still believe in Santa. I know I did until I lost a tooth but didn't have it by night time to put under my pillow. I was wondering how those $20s got under my pillow without me noticing :P So it'd be a nice "utility" for them, like NORAD's or Google's Santa trackers. Even though it's not real unable to be scientifically explained :P

This is a mockup of what could a CE Textlib RPG could probably look like if it had actual sprites:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2F3x9mockups.png&hash=b170486851a46dd87e9bd5978a495dd7) (https://img.ourl.ca/3x9mockups.png)

I bet it would be slow-ish, though. The floor would be a plain color and some sprites would be re-used with different color palettes (for example, sprite 10 and 11 are sprite 1, while sprite 8 is sprite 7), palette that would be defined when entering the dungeon, for both wall tiles. The character would be shorter and its bottom not chopped off, hence why the legs are so long, but its surrounding color would basically be the floor color and its legs would be blue when underwater.

I wonder if such graphics (aside from the colors) would be feasible on the Atari 2600, or even using bAtari Basic? Or what about the Intellivision?

Contrast? I literally just took the first colors I thought looked good for all those assets. I have no idea what all the colors are for the CE color palette.

Also, 6789 was just to continue the pattern. I usually make numbers sequential in my mockups.

Oh I meant to make the orange and blue darker, since they looked pretty light in color. But maybe on the real calc it looks better. Also in C you can use any color you want within what 16 bits allow.

Maybe ile be able to make a 2D minecraft clone. @DJ Omnimaga  i am using 8bpp btw ;) Also the palette will be custom to allow for the colours i need at any given moment.

I like it JWinslow23, but I think the contrast should be a bit darker or maybe the background black. :)

Also lol, 6789 deaths? O.O

Contrast? I literally just took the first colors I thought looked good for all those assets. I have no idea what all the colors are for the CE color palette.

Also, 6789 was just to continue the pattern. I usually make numbers sequential in my mockups.

Oh I meant to make the orange and blue darker, since they looked pretty light in color. But maybe on the real calc it looks better. Also in C you can use any color you want within what 16 bits allow.

And lol I liked those games and mockups :D


Well, the orange would actually be a randomized color, like the original (the spikes would also be a randomized color), but I'll make the blue darker.

Also, I almost forgot I made a Sudoku game before I looked back on ticalc.org. :P

Textlib Invaders mockup:

I think this could be possible if kept this simple, since I did it on the homescreen back in 2002, after all. Basically the boss would just be an extra rectangle plastered on top of an horde of ships and two ships would be yellow like if they were eyes. To defeat a boss you would have to destroy both eyes (or maybe only one?). As for enemy lasers I think they would come in patterns for the boss such as 4 at once.

That is so cool looking! Would there still be bunkers? And how might the performance be, speed-wise?
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 22, 2016, 06:33:25 am
I doubt it, since the game idea is not Space Invaders but more based on Galaxian. I don't know what the performance would be either, but judging by how long it takes to draw sprites of 27 rectangles, I would say don't expect anything better than 3 FPS for this (unless I showed 12 ships at a time instead of 16 like in my 2002 BASIC game). Each ship in this mockup are 2 rectangles, which means 32 rectangles plus your ship and the two laser blocks, meaning 34 rectangles total and 35 during boss fights. That would mean 27 rectangles if 12 ships show up.

Showing 12 ships at a time seems like a good compromise, though, given that you could only shoot 1 laser at a time (although they would move fast).

EDIT: Here's another boss idea, where only 2 ships would be alive (dead ships are black) and the enemy grid is 12 ships large:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Ftextlibinvadersboss2idea12ships.png&hash=3c13ed8a00c7dba99342404e04e51570)

The boss rectangle is basically drawn behind the army in a way that makes it look like a giant alien ship. Killing both eyes would destroy the boss. The boss that appears during the yellow enemy wave would be very hard in the way that you wouldn't be able to see the eyes you need to shoot, but some people might find this kinda cheap <_<

TO be honest, I was never a big fan of Zombie Gun CE. It is fun for a while, especially when there is a shop, but as a side-scrolling platformer fan, I get bored of those games easily because all you do is shoot zombies on a flat plains map with absolutely no obstacle, pits, etc. I prefer when we can jump on platforms, over pits, avoid spikes and solve mazes like in NES games.

Yeah, I always thought the original Zombie Gun was lacking something, but that was before I found out about the "Back From the Dead" beta on Omnimaga that was extremely challenging and gave you no time for boredom, and required you to be on your toes or die in an instant.

I am definitively curious about how this could be done. My main concern is flood-filling that gray area. The only way I can think of is to designate one point in the gray area and then fill each pixel one by one from left to right and top to bottom. But that might be quite slow to render for large patches of sea.

THe lines would probably not be too hard. After all, I once drew the Zelda logo in pure BASIC (although I used an ASM lib to setup 160x240 mode beforehand using Stat Plot:

I would not do anything like flood filling (unless I could get away with each area being entirely rectangular :P ). I'd love to have it in one form that I could just draw on command without having to go through a "rendering" process every time I wanted to draw it. Perhaps I could turn the graphics all into tiles, but the state boundaries could be vector graphics?
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on April 15, 2016, 06:12:43 am
Yeah but with vector graphics, how would you draw a large pool of gray water? I am a bit confused. I guess you could always have vector graphics for state boundaries, though.


The other idea could be to use a massive image but with RLE compression. A tile-map would definitively work too, but what you would need to do is make a large picture mockup, convert it into a tilemap using Mappy, for example, then export the tileset (and if you can convert the map data into calc format, then export that too)

Here is a mockup of what Metroid could look like with CE Textlib with tiles made of 3 rectangles each (to avoid the slanted effect I would just have to change the X offset to be high enough to move down so I can move the Y offset back up by a multiple of 4:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmetroidtriplerectanglemockup2.png&hash=8341670b9a763bc2ce0143381c3ca770)

This would use 6x6 tiles to preserve the 12x8 map size from the TI-84+ xLIB game (another reason why it would use CE Textlib).

The idea there is that since it takes 0.3 seconds to draw a sprite made of 27 rectangles, then I could display 8 sprites made of 3 recangles each in that amount of time. The drawback is that by doing so I wouldn't be able to skip drawing empty sprites (where you can walk) like I do with First Fantasy II. On the other hand, I could always just use some boolean logic with CE Textlib (so that I execute a dummy command instead of DrawRectangle) but that in turn could cause the list to take longer to be stored and the game to be larger. As for the name, it could be Diortem, Metextlibroid, Textlibroid or Textlibtroid. :P

EDIT: I updated the mockup. The Samus sprite would be made of 7 rectangles.

Here is another set of mockups for what Metroid CE Textlib could look like:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmetroid2mockupa.png&hash=35d8ef3d90ab4aff7502924d65a4f164) (https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmetroid2mockupb.png&hash=65b32a96d8fdd779f7da6ad43ab5a937)

The second one would require making a custom font routine (digits would be made of 3 rectangles each, including a big white square followed by erasing parts of it with 2 black rectangles.) Drawing digits would probably use the same sprite routine as other triple-rectangle sprites.

The power-ups uses more rectangles, because they don't need to be drawn in real-time. The gun uses 4, the morph ball too, the bomb uses 3, the varia suit uses 5, the armor uses 4 and the plasma beam uses 7.

I forgot to include the long beam in there, but this one would most likely use 2.

It'll be more like Fire Emblem in that you will be able to have troops on top of those tiles, but they'll have a strategical advantage or disadvantage (like how keeping your troops in Forts heals at the beginning of every turn). Of course, if I'm able to implement that, that's what it'll be.

This is what Zelda would look like in CE Textlib if it used sprites made of 4 rectangles each (or 5 for Link). The problem though is that it would use a lot more different tiles than FFII, so sprite data would be much larger for tiles (FFII CE tiles are 27 list elements each, but the game only has 5 tiles. Zelda would have 16 elements per tile, 4 per rectangles, but over 30 tiles due to how Zelda map perspective is laid out, so about three times more sprite data.

With this map system, DLQ would be impossible. It would be a different Zelda game.

Also I think I would use smaller tiles, because 9x9 is too big for CE Textlib. I would need something that doesn't take so much space on the screen. In order to be easy enough to display, sprites would need to be 6 pixels in width I think.

This resulted into 9x9 sprites, sort-of, but of course some details were lost.

Nice! that looks really good DJ.
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 11, 2016, 03:53:03 pm
Thanks. I was worried about having to reduce details way too much and make the game look as bad as some of the generic TI-Basic games that only uses line commands on ticalc.org, but via some tricks I managed to find solutions. Also the tradeoff is that the resolution is higher. :)

The annoying part, though, was the top of the screen limitations (which is what the Danger Zone in the spritesheet I posted in the other topic is all about). I can't make rectangles start up from pink pixels, else they won't show up. I could just have made graphics draw 2 rows lower but I wanted to keep the HUD at the bottom of the screen (for now at least)


The next annoying part will be to convert all sprites to data. >.<
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: alexgt on May 11, 2016, 04:41:53 pm
Yeah, I do find that HUD's work better if they are on the bottom of the screen :/
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 11, 2016, 08:14:09 pm
Well, in my case it's not that I prefer them at the bottom of the screen, but rather that Output() cannot display text at the top of the screen. With the faster map loading potentials I could always just display the HP/MP in a menu that is full screen, but I thought it was cool to see it displayed at any moment.

Else, the other idea I had in mind was just to use CE Textlib fonts but they can be akward to display on an aligned grid that isn't multiples of 12 pixels horizontally :/
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: alexgt on May 12, 2016, 01:03:11 am
Oh, I forgot there is a toolbar at the top of the CE xD. And yeah, I have no experience with Textlib so I can't relate :P
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 12, 2016, 03:22:56 am
Yeah I removed the toolbar. :P

Also I made an H letter that is 5*7 once O.O (but it's small so perhaps not practical)
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: alexgt on May 12, 2016, 03:05:38 pm
wow that is small O.O
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 12, 2016, 07:04:54 pm
Indeed. Sadly, displaying the letters at 8 pixels intervals seems impossible without heavy work, so if I ever used such small font they would be spaced out every 12 pixel horizontally, which might look weird. I also had another font idea (11x19) but they're kinda big.

This could actually become a thing, one day. (using Sprites v3)

Note that the title would be drawn three times with different offsets. I already have all text/sprites but I still need to convert them to base-36 data. The game would probably be similar to the Ghouls 'N' Goblins mockups I posted a while back, but with better sprites. And the main character would be a :walrii:

@JWinslow23 's discussion about an Axe Pac-Man on IRC made me remember my old mockups of Pac-Man for the 84+:

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.ourl.ca%2Fpacmanmockups.png&hash=f5f468b385d08b12d728cd63f2691ab0)

The goal there is to not annoy the hell out of players with scrolling or a map flipped sideways. (Some people don't mind scrolling in Pac-Man, though)

The layout is the same as @AssemblyBandit's Pac-Man color clone.

Dont really know where to post this, but since @DJ Omnimaga was wondering, here is the OS in 8,4,2, and 16 bit modes respectively: 

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimgur.com%2FGcVW7LM.png&hash=ac103cd88d1224b255c1776c3ef70ba2)

In the second image (4 bit mode) , the contents of the homescreen aren't the same as all the other though.

Alternating between your current mode and the mode lower could be used as some sort of magic spell effect in RPGs :)
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 05, 2016, 11:22:11 pm
Oooh thanks. I did see the 8 bits mode on a real calc at last when grosged made Sprites v3.x use 8 bpp, and it kinda looks cool, although I bet it must be hard to use the calc in that mode. XD


But thanks for sharing those pictures. It looks kinda cool actually :D (too bad in 2,4 bits mode it's apparently slower to display stuff, because people could have saved a lot of memory on sprite data)


EDIT: Also TI-Smartview doesn't support anything other than 16 bpp. If you try playing Pacman on it you'll see 4 green screens.

Ah sorry then D:. That said I think their artwork could be of good use if someone else was to finish them, although it seems like people prefer coding for color calcs nowadays.

I am fairly sure that it could be doable using some tricks, but perhaps at 3 level grayscale instead of 4. Supersonic Ball did parallax scrolling by abusing the Copy() command but for collision detection Builderboy had to pretty much do it for me then explain the changes afterwards >.<

This is an idea of what Pintendre 3002 could look like in colors, but probably not doable with Lines due to the filled squares:

(https://img.ourl.ca/pintendre3002.png)

It could use frame by frame sprites, though, like the original game.

You would probably be able to fill those quads fast enough in asm. You could also "cheat" and fill it very fast without trig/geometry.

For that game I would prefer to stick to basic or with libs, though. That said, on the HP Prime there is a FILLPOLY command that I could use to draw the road.

Well as i said, you could "cheat" and render the road much faster then you would with FILLPOLY ;) You would need a counter for the width of the road, and increment it each time you went down a line.

I have the sprite sheet done but no motivation to remap every Walrii one by one in a list with the dimensions and all <_<

On non-HP calcs it would be even worse, as I would need to convert each Walrii separately, one by one. And yeah I agree about the road. I need to give this a try someday...

Also here's a small version that would fit on-calc:

Yeah, I agree. I'm having mostly fun making it so far, even though all I've done is the menus. I plan to add every character from my past games, sort of a mash-up (or rather, a Smash-up) fighter. So far I have my Sorcery protagonist and the protagonist of an unreleased platformer (which I'll hopefully release something of sometime). I also plan to include an ASCII fighter (resembling my first year or so as a programmer, where I only worked with ASCII sprites). The 4th fighter I could make, I'm not sure who it should be yet.

I hope this one comes to fruition :P. My suggestion would be to make the tanks so they are transparent. You might have to change the color from light blue if they are too hard to see, though. Maybe you could put a light outline around them?

Also I made this mockup in 2010 but I thought I would post it again. It's a mockup of what Ancient Ys Vanished final battle would look like on a TI-84+ if someone made an Axe port:

Making it less blocky will be hard unless you want your program to take a lot more space for sprite data. I personally don't mind how it looks like now, plus it makes it more old school. Great improvements so far :)

So i've basically finished the tilemap editor for walriimon. Still needs saving and proper loading though X.X (Right now you can only do "new game")
Controlls:
W/A/S/D- move around.
[NUMBER PAD] 6-Increase the width of the map by 1 and shift all the tiles to the right of the mouse pointer by 1.
[NUMBER PAD] 2-Increase the height of the map by 1 and shift all the tiles below the mouse pointer by 1.
[NUMBER PAD] 4-Delete the column pointed to by the cursor.
[NUMBER PAD] 8-Delete the row pointed to by the cursor.
Single mouse click (left button) - place current tile at the cursor
Drag mouse (left button) - select multiple tiles.
CTRL + C - Copy current selection;
CTRL + V - Paste current selection at mouse pointer.
Mouse scroll wheel (up / down) - change current selected tile. (Right now there are two tiles - a grey one and a flashing one.

Download: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4B_lqaVH02oZnc5SGtvV0hhWGc (You have to click download button in the top right corner)

But I failed at making it 16x16 since I wanted a little sanddune above it and the door inside it, nut just a single door out of nowhere :/ If 32x16 or even 32x32 would be fine, too, I could try redraw such a thing (in grey of cause) ^^ :)

I assume the dropship needs to be in the similar style as the rest of the units, but larger?

No, they are going to be photographic (as opposed to symbolic)

As for grey bot shop entrance do you mean just the door or signage?

By the way, why so many copies of the same house sprite? ??? They look good, though

I admit you can't see it very good :/ but the houses on the right side have fences (so you can directly put a fence near a house ^^ else there would for example be a stupid 1px space when putting a fence on teh right side of a house. ^^
Ah I see it now :D.

Also darn I hope it's not too much of an hassle to draw sprites this large O.O

So i've basically finished the tilemap editor for walriimon. Still needs saving and proper loading though X.X (Right now you can only do "new game")
Controlls:
W/A/S/D- move around.
[NUMBER PAD] 6-Increase the width of the map by 1 and shift all the tiles to the right of the mouse pointer by 1.
[NUMBER PAD] 2-Increase the height of the map by 1 and shift all the tiles below the mouse pointer by 1.
[NUMBER PAD] 4-Delete the column pointed to by the cursor.
[NUMBER PAD] 8-Delete the row pointed to by the cursor.
Single mouse click (left button) - place current tile at the cursor
Drag mouse (left button) - select multiple tiles.
CTRL + C - Copy current selection;
CTRL + V - Paste current selection at mouse pointer.
Mouse scroll wheel (up / down) - change current selected tile. (Right now there are two tiles - a grey one and a flashing one.

Download: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4B_lqaVH02oZnc5SGtvV0hhWGc (You have to click download button in the top right corner)

Edit: in the main menu use the up/down arrow keys as well as 'enter'.
I love the animated title screen. What would be funny is if you made the walruses so that they are animated and running or flying :D. Dat rickroll, though <_<

Also I noticed @c4ooo that the title text (for the menu) is a bit distorted. You might want to fix that. Some pixels are smaller.

actually I did all the fences and houses and stuff within like 6 or 7 hours (but made no breaks) ^^ But I noticed I'm getting faster every time ^^
Also it's much easier once you can just copy parts of sprites you already drew (like 80% of the fences is copied stuff) ^^

Some new sprites, yaay

Instead of having a picture of Anupam Kher on the shop, I might use the following... it looks funny, and hints to the clandestine nature of what is going on.... you attack everyone (friends and foe) in this game. What does anyone think? Too rubbish?

You can use custom fonts if you make a fontsheet and make a little code. I don't think it's built-in to Mateo's lib

Yes, you can easily create custom fonts. Use the functions:

gfx_SetFontData();
gfx_SetFontSpacing();

Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: c4ooo on October 09, 2016, 04:45:48 pm
Ime guessing it does the 90 degree rotation and then picks a depth at which depth to drop the block. (Depth being the distance from the camera)
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on October 09, 2016, 04:49:15 pm
I think that maybe a better idea would be to have the game rotate, but be tilted by a 10° angle or so, and allow the player to rotate vertically at will, so he can see the top or front. Or at least, have the top be displayed a bit with shadows from the falling block or a guide that is easily visible to know where your block will land.

May I present the most boring game of the year:
We shall call it PokeMonk:

It's a game about collecting laughing monks.
You see a monk, just  sitting there peacefully.
And by pressing a key you poke him just a little bit.
You have to tickle him so much he starts laughing.
If you poke too much, he gets angry instead. You lose.
If you dont poke fast enough it's inaffective. You lose.
If  you make him laugh, you get a MonkBall as reward.
In it is another Monk. You have to make him laugh.

I should really get some more sleep...
*look at that perfect textblock above <3 Isn't it beautiful?  :love:

it seems to be easier if you rotate vertical axis by -45° while not rotating the horizontal axis ^^ (as it's sometimes used in technologic stuff and architecture) ^^
but that also means much more brain-work hen creating the tiles xD
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 08, 2016, 10:48:24 pm
You might want to look at RPG Maker tiles for examples/inspiration for fences. I like how yours look like, though, but looking at examples might make it easier for you if you're trying to tile them correctly.

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 15, 2016, 10:22:54 pm
Yeah speed was not a big problem for me since I tend to know my way around it, but I found xLIBC collision stuff way too difficult back then x.x (if you remember you had to make the entire tilemapper for me and Reuben CSE basically died as soon as you no longer had the time to help >.<, since it would have required me to act like Zera with Escheron RPG project). I don't know how difficult it will be with ICE, though, or how hard it would be with Sprites v3.3.
Title: Re: Game mock-up graphics and ideas
Post by: p2 on November 22, 2016, 10:13:37 pm
I got a new game idea, and that's actually the first one I think might be successful if someone did that.

You al know those stupid games where you can move around parts of a picture like on a chess board in order to restore the original picture?
Imagine that with pixelart stuff but with independant little pictures and a rendering engine that would adapt the edges and borders depending on the neighboting tiles....
What I'm trying to say is the following:
you got a 2D runnign game (gun run style) like running right all the time automatically and shootind down enemies. the more enemies you kill the more points you get. if you dont kill them, they injure you until you die.
from those points oyu can buy pictures in an ingame shop: pixelarts of boosters, guns, lasers, legs, wheels, ...
and then you should have an editor (that chessboard-thing) where you can freely add and remove parts (like when building your car in that stupid angry birds game with the pigs OR also like in BubbleTank..).
But the graphics should adapt to your choices so edges are roundet and stuff like that if you move around the parts. Also it should be those parts defigning your characters stats (speed, fiepower, ...).

I hope that the people would like the game and also stick to it as they themselves create their own avatar and chose for themselves what they want (speed, firepower, different ways of movement, walk, roll, fly, fast gun, big gun, ...) so they cna be really proud of the character they created and probably form some kind of bondage to it like you do to your character in online games after a couple of weeks.

What do you thing? does it suck and sound boring? or would it be a nice little mobile game to try out? :)
(I totally dont have the time to do it myself so in case you like the idea, go STEAL IT!!)
but if you make >100$ then don't be a d*** and buy me cookies!! ;) <3

I like it @JWinslow23 :D

Talking about Mario games, this is an idea of what Super Mario 82 Advanced could look like

(https://codewalr.us/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.codewalr.us%2Fmario82advanced.png&hash=60dd52a06f8179516f292654d1a90f4d)

It would run on the TI-82 Advanced, 82 Plus, 83 Plus, 84 Plus and Silver Edition models, but the main target would be the TI-82 Advanced and TI-84 Plus T, which both lacks Z80 assembly, Axe and Grammer support (only pure TI-BASIC is available). I bet it would be feasible under certain conditions, such as having only two enemy per screen always spawning from the same location and power-ups coming out of question blocks counting as enemies (meaning on screens with power-ups there would only be 1 enemy). Or power ups could be used instantly when hitting a question block, like in the Atari 2600 demake of SMB1. The main engine would have to be kept as small as possible and enemies/power ups might have to not use dual-layer ASCII. The game would come with 8 string (8xs) files containing one world each (with 4 levels).

Title ideas: Super Mario 82 Advanced. Basically, the game would run on a 84+ but since there's not much reason to make a BASIC Mario when an established ASM one already exists, the game would have to be named in reference to how the TI-82 Advanced and TI-84 Plus T lacks ASM, BBC Basic, Axe and Grammer support. But 82 Advanced/84+T users would have a semi-decent dual-layer ASCII Mario clone, if done properly. :P

(semi)-Isometric idea

(https://img.codewalr.us/isometricmockup.png)

I say semi because the walls in there are a tiled background (this is a flat map and could probably be redesigned so that no tile in the background are hidden by front ones, like in Kirby's Dream Course, meaning that only the checkerboard tiles would have to be provided in multiple, split iterations depending of which side of the walls you want to shade)
