I am having trouble wrapping my head around SPCOLVEC, but I think it is what I need to determine if sprite collision happened because one sprite "landed" on another (ie. killing an enemy by jumping on it), it seems like the command only allows you to check a single diagonal quadrant around the sprite.

Edit: I also notices sprite groups and was hoping those could be explained a bit to me. (or a link shown to an explanation)
Edit 2: so I played around with sprite groups by making 7 different sprites I can control individually, and can give some insight for others who need it. there are 8 different groups for sprites numbered as follows: 1, 2, 4 ,8, 16, 32, 64, 128. when you set a sprite's collision box you can also set it to one or more groups (to set it to multiple groups just add the group numbers together and use that number, ie group "5" would be both 4 and 1) When using SPHIT() it will only register collision with sprites that share a group with the sprite you are checking, so if you put the hero and his ranged attack in different groups they won't trigger SPHIT() from each other, but if they are both also in the same group as the enemy sprite then they can both trigger hits with the enemy.

I hope I explained that well enough, and anyone else knows of another thing that groups can be used for please let me know.

SPCOLVEC, AFAIK, is used as a "look-ahead". In determining collision, say against a wall, you don't want the sprite to overlap. You want the collision to trigger before they overlap, and SPCOLVEC is used as the velocity of the sprite as a look ahead so you can take care of the collision before it occurs.

Your discussion about sprite group is correct. It is a way to manage sprite collision trigger so it does not overwhelm the program. You can also use it to spring hidden traps against player's hero but not wandering monsters, for example.

Wow based off mine? That's awesome! Anyways, could somebody help me with a breakout game I'm making? It won't have the bricks to break at the top, it's just to help me learn to make games. I need help with the sprites. I don't know how to move them with the d-pad, and don't know how to make he sprites different sizes (like the ball and the paddle). I ALSO don't know how to do sprite collisions or make the ball act like, well, a ball. :/

Hey, Linput14,
Please delete your questions from Petit Computer Tutorial thread. If you have questions, please ask them in this thread. Tutorial thread is only for completed tutorials. See Post#10. Also, your sprite question has already been answered. See Post#7.

Just because you don't like QR on YouTube, doesn't mean nobody does. People have been posting QR codes on YT for a long time. It's okay to ask for alternative distribution channel, but to ban something based on your personal preference isn't a nice thing to do. Please be considerate to other's feeling.

Based on his previous videos of QR codes, It's not just his personal preference, it's just that uploading a video of your computer screen filmed with an external camera is not the best way to share QR codes (which require a good image quality).

On a side note, I just updated my website to include all the Petit Computer programs I have finished, everyone is invited to visit it!

Exactly what Morphtroid said. YouTube is great if you can 1) Get a clear image streight on, without wobble and in focus, and 2) When you don't have lots of QRs to show. For other uses, a web site is better, mostly because 1) Your not forceing a deadline for your scaners. 2) If you got clear QRs in .pic format, thay are easy to post and show.

In related news, since I can't change the .zip format on my own program, I can't post it. Which is not realy a waist...it is simply another simple number guess text program anyways.

Tried Sound Tester 2 on your site, it's awesome. Some things I didn't care for, though, such as having to keep clicking NEXT to get to the BG you want (or to turn off BGM).

And thanks for adding PTCP to your links page!

That doesn't mean no YT. It just means he needs better images. How do you like it if he posted the snapshot of his blurry video on website? :p
You said it yourself: It's okay if the images are clear. Therefore, it's not YT related. Banning YT posting is irrelevant in this case.

To Morphtroid:
Thanks for mentioning my blog, and your kind words about it. I guess this means I need to add something more to it. :)

@bigdog00 didnt steriaca and I say Pm was a bad idea? There is a sharing thread and a wiki. What more could you ask??!!

I did? Well, I do agree with you...use the Petit Computer Wikia and/or the Petit Computer QR Sharing Thread. I realy hate people who think thay must film the QRs with YouTube, ect. But thay are not the only options. There is setting up your own web page, and put the pics of your QR programs on that. There is putting pics of your QRs on a pic sharing site (like Flicker or Twitpics). There is leaving the pics as .zip files, and posting them on a free file storing site (like I have to do). There is asking people to e-mail you, and you send them the QRs in your reply.

Just, Please, No, More, YouTube, Videos, Of, Your, Program, QRs.

goes it really matter. i mean really, so its not a picture, big deal

edit: This was a post asking for help with something, but I found something different that I hadn't tried yet and it worked so the problem wasn't where I thought it was. So instead I will turn this into a thank you for whoever made the Petit BASIC Platformer Engine at:
elecdil.blogspot.com/2012/08/petit-basic-platformer-engine.html
I have added enemies and the ability to fire projectiles to it, now I just need to make a better map.

for now, i'm working on a Text only adventure game, drawing inspiration from the one from 'Big'. i'll try using some mechanic for images to be displayed on the screen, but that's a stretch for my current BASIC knowledge.
