Re: Poll: Android One vs Android Two

Android 2 for me - I love it. I've played through it several times ... and if you think it'd hard then just wait until you come to "the plains" - then it's hard :mrgreen: It's the first game I tried to remake. The first game I actually finished coding was a remake of Sir Lancelot - and that was in 2...

The JSW rope has a kink in it, so the movement isn't completely right.
I wasn't suggesting you should copy the code - just look at how it was done and perhaps come up with a new similar way.

Re: Spectrum musicians - how do you do it?

Does that mean you didn't have the AY as part of an interrupt or that you had to DI when drawing the screen? Yes and no (don't you just love a clear answer, lol). The game - as it is now - doesn't use interrupts. I did implement interrupts when trying to add music in-game, but this in itself caused...

Re: Spectrum musicians - how do you do it?

I was a bit dissapointed Vallation 128 didn't have AY music, but the AY effects are among the best I've heard. Well, there was AY music on the main menu, but I know what you mean ;) I did try to have music in-game, but there was too much slowdown and an annoying pause everytime you changed screen. ...

It may not be a pretty solution, but it's better to improve everything gradually instead of putting an entire site on hold for years while working on a fancy solution.

Re: Tir Na Nog and... Legend of Amazon Women :)

They do look similar, but It's not the same authors.
LotAW is pretty repetitive btw ... but at least you're feeling like you're getting somewhere - unlike in Tir Na Nog :D

Oh, I loved Deviants. A very cool game.
Pretty good game - it's so fun running around, but the map is perhaps a tad too big.
... oh, and I hate those damn puzzle sections.

Re: Games with notable maps

Having said that the map for SQIJ 2018 is hard to navigate, but it's small enough to enjoy mapping it. Neat. I hadn't seen it had been mapped. One of the deciding things that made me remake the game is that I realized there was only 64 screens. It seemed very doable :D Today I'm sending off Sqij v1...

Re: New Game: SQIJ 2018 - the worst Spectrum game remade.

Glad you sorted that bug, sounds like it had the potential to be more damaging than the occasional errant pixel. The strange thing is it only ever did if on my first play It’s very easy to replicate though. When you start a game to go the right, then up the first time. On that screen let yourself f...
