I posted a new MML tutorial on the tutorial thread, if anybody's interested. It's harder stuff that's only useful you actually want to make full sounding songs. Hope it helps!

Well, I'm a HUGE retro gaming fan. but I' m more of an Atari fan. I made a very simple Mini version of Centipede. It's only on it's beta test, it's on beta test 1.4.5.

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)

I bet you are thinking of Rampark.

Nope. I know Rampark. This was a black and white game played with up to four players on a cocktail cabnet. Controls were a spinner knob, and a "launch/grab" button. The game starts with a dragon sprite tossing a 'fierball' at one of the four towers on the screen, then continues till only one tower is left standing. (Note, game uses overlays to produce color). Game was released for home as a 2600 game (with color).

Making a real asteroid game isn't that far off from the demo. Removing internal debugging data. Put out some waves. That's about it, right?

OK K'm back and ready for duty! I went camping with a bunch of friends and on the way, I started making a game that simulates the career of a lumberjack. (Its actually my first real use of BGOFS). And do I dream of Petit Computer 3D. Do I dream...

The site is going along fine. Most of the work is done off the actual site and a new logo is in progress. I will still use the original to show off ideas and such. So far, only me and @ramstrong (←improper grammar) Have access to the site.

@ramstrong Do something awesome with it :).

Everybody do a chirp. CHIRP.

@ramstrong Do something awesome with it :).

I've been working on an outline for lessons. So far, I've divided it into 3 phases: (1) Basic Commands - what the Help function on the program tells you. (2) Sprites, BG, CHR - Hardware wise (3) Projects - Program Based Construction Kit. Think of Lego pieces, but with subroutines.

I'm still working on the Algorithm section. Pathfinding, AI, and UI will need to be featured as well.

PS: Incorrect grammar? How would the correct one look like? Anyway, I don't mind. There's ARM-strong, and there's RAM-strong. :p

@twinArmageddons You're welcome! There're actually many ways of accomplishing that. I actually prefer doing it a different way, even though it's just the slightest bit slower to process. Instead of:

SPSET 0,0,0,0,0,1
@GAMELOOP
B=BUTTON()
IF B AND 1 THEN Y=Y-1
IF B AND 2 THEN Y=Y+1
IF B AND 4 THEN X=X-1
IF B AND 8 THEN X=X+1
SPOFS 0, X, Y
VSYNC 1
GOTO @GAMELOOP

I do this:

SPSET 0,0,0,0,0,1
@GAMELOOP
B=BUTTON()
Y=Y+((B AND 2)==2)-((B AND 1)==1)
X=X+((B AND 8)==8)-((B AND 4)==4)
SPOFS 0, X, Y
VSYNC 1
GOTO @GAMELOOP

Why do I like that better? I don't know, I like equations more than if statements in BASIC (because the formatting for IF statements is just plain dumb). Also, this saves a few lines, which is important when I'm doing it 80 billion times in Village. Shoot, there I go promoting my programs again.

I like the simple version that is ramstrong.blogspot.com. I have another, fancier blogspot, but I kind of regret having it. I'm thinking of reverting the style to the simpler version. That, and some pages that acts like an outline would be best.

As far as graphic design is concerned, I'll leave it up to you. You'll be doing the lion's share of it. I'm going to start yet another blogspot. I have some wicked ideas that I've been thinking about all week, and I will start doing it tomorrow.

Hey guys! This finally released in Europe, so I'm going to get back into PTC! I'll try to release some games before September, including Dungeon Adventure version 1.0. If we make great games, Europeans will buy it and make great games! Let's get programming!

I just came up with a great idea for a game! GAME & WATCH Punch Out!! I'll begin working on it soon. It should be easy to program.
