I don't think your image host allows hotlinking, but you can attach files to your posts. :)

I like the change, I think it looks a bit more natural and gives a better feeling of 3D - this is especially noticeable with the doors to the right of the lower screenshot, I find.

Oops! Thanks for that Ben :).

Yeah although the perspective is still way off, it does make it look a little more 3D. I think i might run with it ... now to hack up the tilemap!

EDIT - OK so the tilemap has been updated, have a look at the attached to see what it looks like in game:

(And yes he can shoot squares from his face :P).

EDIT - also made a very basic tool for object placement over lunch at work :)

That looks gorgeous, tr1p1ea :-) And who doesn't wish they had the ability to shoot squares from their face?

ooh, i like that the door codes can be entered with the keypad now instead of scrolling from one to the next. that was the most annoying thing in the last version.

as for the graphics... :insane:

Yeah the codes are much better with the keypad :).

The squares are just a test for bullets and such, there will be more than 1 weapon in this version!

Hey, it's been a bit since I posted here. I think the new perspective looks fine. It does indeed make it look a bit more 3di-sh. Man I've gotta say Tr1p, you are killing me with those screen shots. It really looks beautiful. =)

Thanks! Trying to find time to work on it but i am determined to finish!

On another point you know its bad when you have to go through the [messy] source for custom grayscale tools to figure out what the command-line arguments are meant to mean! :).

Impressive that you're still working on this. Looks good, keep up the good work. Might have to install an emulator to play through the game once more, when it's released 8)

Hmm... ive been thinking about dropping it to 7-lvl as ive been working on improving the quality and 7lvl seems to be working very nicely.

well, it looks brilliant as it is. i heard some of the talk about that on irc, and it does sound like it would come out nicely, but would it take a lot of work to switch (i.e. is it just a matter of cutting out one colour in the data and changing the display routine, or would you have to go through and re-pallet every sprite)?
