I'm just glad I found it now as opposed to way too later!

Triston did a playtest today and we found some odd bugs which need fixing , oh gosh, i thought i'd fixed these!!!!

Mega Cat? IIRC, that was the one up in Pennsylvania, not too far from where I lived in Maryland.

Gotta carve out a demo mode tomorrow, along with a few bug fixes and ideally some sorta security patches to prevent access to areas I don't really want in anything but the demo build.

Whuhhh, today was an fairly intense day of coding at home.

Re-did the ending so It wasn't the same as the main version. Fixed up some bugs with the audio engine, found and fixed other bugs with regards to the ending not recording scores nicely, added a timer whic is shown upon game completion, reduced the demo mode to just easy mode and hard mode. Eughhhh, I'm tired, 12 hours of coding (okay, on and off coding) sure takes a lot! NN

Good grief. That definitely sounds intense!

If it were any other language it'd be fairly straight forward, but,as I'm sure Kuron can attest to, 6502 ASM takes longer programming time wise than most

Could be worse -- it could be C. As Ethan Winer said "C has all of the difficulty of dealing with assembly language, but none of the benefits."

Still haven't been able to get into the headspace I was in 9 years ago dealing with ASM. I vaguely understand the gist of what I was doing. Anyway, not the thread for that!

Will have to bend your ear to try and get my feet wet with GBC & NES coding.

Flap Happy!

Oh no, C is lovely, so much faster to make a game in.

I'll never touch X86 ASM that's for sure though!

Eagerly awaiting a repsonse from Megacat now, both excited and nervous in differeing amounts although this glass of Merlot has helped out

Got some handy feedback on Friday including updating the 1987 to 2023 for the demo, requests for more info and another "how to play" option on the main menu.

I'm at just under 5kb left though and need to have space for Kickstarter backers to have their own credits page, eep!

Found a couple spaces where there's some contiguous memory to write to but it's only 256 bytes here and there, it's kinda scary, the whole idea of re-organising code at this point.


Triston noticed a bug with the Hard Demo mode that I only noticed from the audio as it began with an underwater track, not the dungeon one, oh gosh!


Tonight should be interesting!

I'm honestly more excited than stressed currently

There's some preview bits on the twitter:

4,436 bytes remain, but that's with an uncompressed how to play screen. I reckon I might be able to bring that down somewhat.

No compressed screen data but I've compressed a lot of code, optimized some loops and back up to 4,630 bytes!

re-organised some code up, I now have #$DD71 - $DFFF free in one nice big block of 654 bytes

Todo:

add different bird types
add how to play screen
add intro screen (probably)
add ks backers screen

Gotta do at least one of these 4 bits tonight.

It's getting a little scary how little conitiguous space there is left available.

More code optimisation tonight, found another 300 bytes, up to ~ 4,900bytes again

That's the fear that comes with it, I have to play through easy mode at least each time I make changes, to ensure that the shortcuts aren't affecting anything, so far, so good though. Goona have a cuppa tea, then hoodwink this how to play screen in there.

Even the tiles are pretty much full now!

Half are sprites, half are for background, I know, I could optimise these down but there's not much I'd be able to do with them now

Got most of the screen done last night, thankfully my meeting got postponed to Monday so I have Sunday free to sort other bits out!
