I'm almost done with my rpg,background-scrolling engine. There's only one more thing I need to figure out. How do I make the background stop moving when I collide with the other sprite?? I've tried to look at other people's code, but I cannot find my answer. I'm so close!! help would be appreciated :) (Btw, I am not using Discostew's background-scrolling).

@zeldafourswords: The reason for your graphics problem can be one of many things.

1) You think you got all the requiered QRs, but diden't realise that there are more on the web page which controls CHAR, COL, ect, seprate from the other QRs. It is easy to miss them when there are multiple programs on the web page AND the page is in a language you do not speek.

2) The programer/publisher forgot to include them on the web page.

3) The programer/publisher uses files published by other, and (in the best case senerio) linked to the site thoes files came from. Smilebloom's japanies site has a few CHAR files, like tanks, punks, ect which may be of use.

Which reminds me, anyone have the http for Smilebloom's japanies web site, so he could scan theas files?

@Zeldafoursword would you like me to make some tutorial games on Petit Computer? I would be able to teach enough BASIC to make a text adventure game.:)

Maybe if I get some free time I can start helping with tutorials. If petitprofessor left youtube maybe I can do some quick videos but I don't have alot of time right now I have a long term guest staying over at my place and I'm gonna have to deal with more tooth pain from having teeth removed soon BLECK.. only three more to go? hopefully that'll be it. Darn wisdom teeth! . I'd love to get more involved in the community here though.. Maybe someone could suggest the most frequently asked questions by newbies, and we create a resource where all those questions or posts, and the common answers are archived for people to see (and posted clearly somewhere either on a seperate site or somewhere in this thread we can link to. )

Also a good resource people keep forgetting to suggest is the Petit Computer function guide, it's not so much useful to newbies I don't think though. But still a good thing to have listed.
Any tutorial should introduce the vast number of different pages/tutorials and other resources available on the internet.
:D Good news. I've began to learn 6502 assembly language (the same language the nes uses) and I'm starting to get the hang of it.
I'm not implying I can port nes games to petit computer. That would take alot of effort.

Petit Legend of zelda is taking alot out of me. I have a few other projects going as well including a full blown space shooter game for pc who's design is not near complete but alot of the core gameplay mechanics are.

Should we make a petit computer official community youtube group where people can post their videos?
Maybe we should have a more elaborate art/sprites tutorial section somewhere on whatever site people are making. That'd be great.
I'm sorry for the disorganization in my post. haha. Just getting it all out there.

I'm going to take what I know from developing for other systems/consoles and try to write up some basic tutorial stuff.
Most tutorials should include extensive information on data types before even getting into sprites. I've noticed a common trend with newbies.
"how do I move this sprite"
"how do I draw this graphic"
"how do I use my own graphics"
and "how do I set the background"
"how do I play music"
most newbies seem to want to jump right into creating their first graphical game.
I'll say this much, I'm a decent programmer when it comes to pc stuff but still even with my experience on pc I haven't been able to make a full game in petit computer yet (The sprite system is hard to get used to when you want custom stuff)

Wow. Long post right? I think I'll leave it at that for now.
Post, comment, share. Etc.

Got a project? PM ME on here!

I myself would love to see it. Have you thought of making a PTC version of... drat... I'm forgeting the name of the game... the paddle game where you defend your castle and destroy the castles of others? Or of the original Gauntlet? I seen a semi-asteroid-ish game, but we need the real thing more than a demo.

Anyways, any games from Atari you want to (what would be the corect lingo...I got it) pay homage to? (sounds better than 'rip off' anyways)

Heh, I can relate to that. I'm coming from a GBA/DS homebrew background with direct access to the memory-mapped registers, and just looking at how PTC handles sprites, I've seriously found myself asking "why?" a number of times. I'm even wondering why many of of capabilities of the DS's 2D hardware aren't being used, such as Mosaic and Color Blending.
