Ohh, i really like the flames. They actually fit quite nice in your char-vased game :)

Hmmm the banner looks cool. Maybe it can go on the title screen ?

DJ Omnimaga

I don't think it will be used sadly. I kinda like my animation now :P

Streetwalrus

Oh too bad. Well it's true that the animation looks cool too. :P

DJ Omnimaga

Hehe thanks. Part of the reason why I made that image at first was that I originally considered keeping the entire game intact including all text. I only got the HUD idea later. Also IIRC I wanted to use a 32 color pic for it but to do that you need to waste an entire 160x120 picture, which would have taken unnecessary amounts of space, and using inline sprites would have been tedious because I would need to separate the graphics in 8x8 chunks and I had many. >.<

Streetwalrus

Oh I see. Keeping the game as is would have been kinda stupid since you're porting it to a much nicer screen. I like the direction it's taking. :)

Snektron

Too bad, i liked the fire bit :/

Not necessarily. It would at least have remained true to the original. But I felt like improving some stuff in the end because the game is so ancient and some stuff was just not adapted for the color screen. For example, the magic animation that was basically For(Z,0,50:DispGraph:Disp:End ended up lasting over 1 minute. O.O

Oh. That's quite heavy. What was the animation?

DJ Omnimaga

It flashes between the home screen and graph screen very fast. But on the CSE doing so is very slow.

Duke "Tape" Eiyeron

Yeeewah you prolly don't want that.

Snektron

Is it some kind of test for the device of somthing? :P

Nah DispGraph shows the graphing screen and Disp shows the home screen. But on monochrome models that's quite fast so it almost looks like grayscale.

Duke "Tape" Eiyeron

But with CSE's already legendary speed, you won't get gray like that! :p

What did you do instead?
