Re: Knight Hero

Completed, good game. Even though it's 'just' a platform game the chess theme makes it feel more than that.

Needs the pokes though, yet another example of a game that no-one except the author will play all the way through without snapshots or cheats.

Re: Bug in 'Additional files downloads'?

Indeed, in fact thinking about it Peter - you could drop the loop all together as we only need one iteration of 'PRINT Beachheadinlay'.

Hope that helps :D

Re: Knight Hero

Infy lives pokes.

Black version: POKE 31006,0
White version:POKE 31014,0

Better collision (both versions):
POKE 36093,40

The collision poke is not perfect as it's still strict enforcement for things coming down onto the sprite's head, but it's much better for the player sprite falling onto baddies.

Re: Bug in 'Additional files downloads'?

Whoa! That's new. The guys were working on the site the last couple of evenings, must be a side effect of that.

Thanks for pointing it out.

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, I never saw it again.

Looking forward to the tape.

Re: ZAD Adventure System - Progress

This looks fantastic.

I'm not clear - is this a utility that runs on a spectrum or a PC?

Re: Knight Hero

It actually looks like the problem is the Y* collision, which can't be changed in the AGD designer, the X has been set to be more forgiving.

*vertical to some, horizontal to others! In this case I mean vertical.
