Nokaromi,

You have the enthusiasm of a young boy!

Maybe like me 15 years ago!

Are you a teen that knew MSX in about one or two years and saw the possibility of develop a game by yourself shining?

Go all the way man, I will post soon one text to help you. Now, I have some problems with timing and interrupts, some corrected , others still in my (K)nightmares...

Ah, and my project is a shot'em'up too.

Yeah Marison, that's me !!!
Pretty cool you're making a shoot em up too !!
Hopefully I can learn some from you.....
Could you tell me what you are using (musix, SFX, which screen mode, type of scrolling etc....)

Yeah, so far the timing and the interrupts are most difficult for me....
and I still have problems using SEE for my sound effects.......

But everytime I work on my project I see a change for the better....
Ill keep working, never to give up my dreams !!!

Sync-ing the mainlus is done for the same reason you call your game and putsprite routine in the interrupt routine.
You want to have a fixed frame rate and smooth movement!.
OFFCOURSE !!!
Thanx, that's so logical !!!

Yeah Marison, that's me !!!
I could guess! Good time that's 80's and yearly 90's for me, much by my MSX programming. I was in that age a fanatical MSX guy!

Pretty cool you're making a shoot em up too !!
Hopefully I can learn some from you.....

Inevitably, we will learn both from each other.

I use PT3Player for music, I will use SEE for SFX, Screen mode 2 and maybe 4, only for 8 sprites in a line, scrolling by tile only, 8x8 pixels.

My game is for MSXdev and I have to use MSX1 capabilities. I could use some MSX2 code if it is detected, but only the game running totally with MSX1 in mind will be judged.

Yeah, so far the timing and the interrupts are most difficult for me....
and I still have problems using SEE for my sound effects.......]

For me it is hard, too, but I could go on more encouraged after each successfull step.


But everytime I work on my project I see a change for the better....
Ill keep working, never to give up my dreams !!!

You could give me a treatment to stop playing chess on-line Wink

Now, I need only a bit of devotion to get more concentration and bypass some bugs.

It's difficult to someone outside the project team (the project team is me;-) help in this time.

Thanks,

Marison

I could not post the chess site here. It could be considered a advertise. So, if you and others want, send me a mail in marison @t gmail d.t com (simple to understand, I suppose) and I will give the url.

The service is free and is much fuctional. Do not is neccessary give much time in front of the computer. If your adversary play, you will receive a mail. I'm playing 59 games now!
