More Games for the SPB

Post by mackletus » Tue Sep 11, 2012 4:01 am

Hey there.

As I wait for my transistor, can't stop thinking about how cool this game is.

Any chance we can port any of the games like "Car Race", "Pong", etc., from your other projects to the SPB?

I haven't coded anything this complex in a long time but I'm certainly willing to help and learn.

Anybody?

Lets have fun....

Mackletus.

Well, as long as I can use the free version, can't afford to get a license right now.

I'll install it and start tinkering with your code

Thanks

It would nice too see if the SBP code will actually compile/work with the SE Version of SF? :)

I think Brad said you can't, I think there is a limit on how much memory you can use with the SE version.

BTW. I'm downloading it now :o , Wish me luck.... LOL

Unfortunately it can't be compiled with the free version.

But you can still do alot with 256bytes!


I know it's still too much, but RetroBall uses only 347 variable bytes!

Hey, Just starting to play with the code, but I can't seem to find RandGen.bas

I see bitfogav uses RandGen2.bas in the Dice program.

Where is it?

These Random Generators are some Modules that Swordfish users have put together..

Heres the Randgen.bas that Brad used in the SPB
RandGen.rar
(910 Bytes) Downloaded 263 times
More Modules can be found here:
http://digital-diy.com/index.php?option ... Itemid=183
Or
http://www.sfcompiler.co.uk/wiki/pmwiki ... er.Modules

If swordfish SE is the same as the full version then you can make your own Modules and store them in the "User Library" folder. Thats usually found in the same directory where Swordfish was installed, you can put the RandGen.bas file in the User Folder or the other option is to put the RandGen.bas file in the same folder has the Super Pixel Bros game files.

Got it, but of course got a memory error when compiling.

At least I'll be able to study the code.

Thanks
