[Calc Wars] Status Update [22 Feb 2006]

Post by Patori »

:D Just letting you know that I'm actually still working on this.

Occasionally.

I have a lot of other things on my plate... but I definatly wanna get a screenshot together.

After all, how many times have i promised one?

I hope to show off the scrolling of the tile map, and the cursor...

I also hope to show off the basics of movement ^^

Yeah, It would help if I didn't have 50 hr weeks + a 1.5 hour long bus ride between my house and my work...

I think we all can agree on that one :P. So if you don't plan on working on this one day, will you be releasing the code and what not?

Yeah whenever i get a day off, sometimes i dont really feel like coding. Most of the time i just want to relax and be lazy :).

Will you have tile-scrolling or smooth scrolling? I think tile-scrolling would suit the game better imo.

I was also thinking about doing a strategy game. Do you still use advance wars sprites?

Kozak: I am using the sprites that the author of CalcWars 89 made, and I think tr1p converted them quickly into Z80 data for me...

Tr1p: I'm using tile scrolling... why would i waste my time making smooth scrolling when this game doesnt need it?

kalan_vod: I won't be deciding to quit this project any time soon.

Great to hear Patori! I am happy you want to finish this game, and tile scrolling is fine and dandy!
