Nice stuff.

I really want to see someone use this method on MSX2 in combination with the scroll & adjust register to get smooth parallax scroll Smile.

Very cool!!! The water effect looks really cool!!! very nice use of fast tile-level scroll to make it look like waving, I'm impressed!

That is a great effect, I just wonder : Are those waves full blown characters or are they fiddling with the color tables during run-time? That might be a litle slower but could be more flexible if other bg titles could be used

Since you like water waves and just to blow my own horn... Tongue
Here is a water/wave effect I once created but never released: https://youtu.be/8z-MUJTk10Y

If you want to run this on your won HW you can download the rom here

All this is pretty clever stuff. Looks really good. It deserves to be put into a real game.

Fun to see some remnants of vscreen again too, he he :)

So the wave effect is inspired by Hero/Pitfall 2. It is done with 2 sets of 64 pre-defined tiles (one set for the top wave, one set for the bottom wave).

The 64 tiles are based on 8 steps of scrolling (with a different TGP) x 8 steps of wave height (with a different TC). This allows to achieve the effect with only 2 x 32 outs in total per VBlank.

The "green" area is experimenting with sprites which are a combinations of tile based sprites (the colored background, one color per line, pre-shifted) & Hardware sprites (the outline). This allows having multicolored sprites for enemies while still having 2 colors for the main sprite, without flickering. The only constraint is that those enemies can only move over a "uniform" background which would work with something that looks like SMB and the right level design.

Pretty cool effects. The parallax and the enemies mixing tiles and sprites I'm using (or planning to use) on my current project, Go Penguin.

Very cool Maggoo! Are you still working on this? or was that just a test?

That looks really nice!

Can anyone update the wiki on how tiles, hw and sw sprites work? As that information is missing in the wiki :)

It's just a test put together in a matter of hours, nothing close to a full game.
