### Re: The perfect fall/jump

If we were to use the laws of physics, we would probably eschew a jump table. Instead, we would give the sprite an initial vertical velocity (henceforth known as u ).

Wow! Grats mate! Is everything (sans the logic) inside that 512?

This is going to break the forums when it's done, released and gone viral.

You may be interested in the 3D Construction Kit website which covers the initial 8-bit version of the software and the later 16-bit release. http://www.3dconstructionkit.co.uk/ Lots of interest there. Especially Mandy's fanzines which were the official user group publications. Thanks for the link!

I tried R-Tape's speed mod and it feels spot on to me. Also it would be nice being able to cancel using the joystick...
