Lbl/goto arent reliable, sure you can get fast speed with them with no mem leak sometimes, but when the goto instruction is encountered there is always a delay before it find the lbl. When they are at the bottom of prgm you can get 0.5 secs loading per goto, which isnt reliable. I recommend for(, while, repeat

well, I guess I understand what you mean...but I think that It'd realy depend on how many 'events' you had. I don't understand why a collison isn't an event but a dialouge opportunity is, but it doesn't realy matter.

to be neat, you COULD make animated vector characters which actualy move as there "joints" move in your battle engine. Or not, I just think that'd be the shiz.

well I meant ROL3, sry I didnt specified it :P

and #tcpa isnt Maxcoderz channel, its a general TI calc channel, altough there are some trolls who hang here. I would recommend #unitedti channel on irc://unitedti.org or #omnimaga on the efnet server

It seems JavaMan is somewhat right. He figured out if you Return from a program, the RAM used for block tracing is flushed out, thus I can defy proper syntax without having a crash. At least, that's what I'm hoping. I modified my Number testing program and it exceeded 8000 without any slowdown at all, so I threw this logic into TILEDATA, and what do you know? It runs almost 3x faster.

So if you'd like this enhancement, download the updated TILEDATA program and enjoy! The character even moves faster since his data is in there.

Download!

DarkAuron, you should make an update link in your first post too, so that new guys don't get your old one. :)

New concept shots, not necessarily the items/equipment/exact stats that will be used though:

They're concept shots right now and I'll be working on magic concept screens next. I just need something to work with that I can easily transfer without killing off my calc batteries.

I've never noticed too great a drain on my calc's batteries, and I send images to it all the time- I constantly re-arrange my sprite sheets to save space, and update the images on calc, and my batteries still ususally last 4-6 months.
