someone on the wiki helped me with the lag problem in aottg, and now there's another option to control lag. it changes the frames before updating the bg so you can have virtually no lag now, although you have to sacrifice a bit of smooth scrolling

get in loser we're going titan hunting

Smooth.... Scrolling? How would I incorporate that in Terraria DS?

@JLMan Yes. Trigonometry is an incredible tool; it can do so much. You should also learn tangent and arctangent (TAN and ATAN). If you want, I can give you the formulas to find cotangent (COT), secant (SEC), and cosecant (CSC) in trig, but those aren't as widely used as sine (SIN) and cosine(COS).

Thanks for telling me that! However, I don't need the formulas but I will google those values to find their use and formulas. Thanks anyway. And thanks for placing my name is the Minecraft DS credits! (even though I didn't do anything.)
@Leviceljir Where can I find Terraria DS? If your game uses BG tiles then use BGOFS.
BGOFS layer,x,y,time

It's not out yet. And it won't be for a while. And what do I use BGOFS for? And what is BGOFS? What does it do?

idk aottg uses variables like BGX and BGY and draws the bg with graphic commands
BGOFS changes the offset of the bg tiles [BG-background OFS-offset] so it could be used for scrolling

How would I make it do scrolling? I have never used BGOFS before

BGOFS layer,x,y,time
Layer - The BG layer.
X - The X offset.
Y - The Y offset.
Time - The time it takes to offset the BG tiles.
You could do
BGOFS 0,(X-15)*8,(Y-11)*8,0 assuming that your character is in the middle of the screen, that BG tiles are 8*8 and that you want to offset the foreground layer.

I'll post my completed BGMaker on my blogspot tomorrow. You'll see BGOFS in action then. Also, in order to get scrolling, you want BG larger than 32x24, so my program will take in up to 6 GRPs and build a background out of those.

Yeah When I use BGOFS It basically goes in a circle instead of scrolling through the 256x192 world

I have a question.
How do I make a randomly generated dungeon with an up stair and down stair, and a chance to have one of 5 special rooms with locked doors? (15% chance each)

In other news, every day I will reveal a new feature. Today is the dungeon names!
1. Yendar"s Fall 2. Moldy Grotto 3. Stone Prison 4. Mirror Cave 5. Slum District (Unlock Caos!)6. Lavafall Keep
7. Glittering Chasm 8. Floodgate Ravine 9. Lost Crucible (Unlock Synod!)10.Ruined Cavern 11.Great Dam 12. Breakout Vault
13. Waterfall Cave (Unlock Daos!)
Look back at the classes. I added new info about them!

Tell me what you think!

You're probably going to need to give us some more information about how you want the dungeons designed. Will it be room-based like Zelda games, or will it be more like one big room with blockades like Gauntlet or even Diablo? You need to be more specific in your question by giving us details on how you would like the resulting generated dungeons to look.

Hey guys, I finally posted my completed BGMaker. It's not really fleshed out. No mirroring, for example, but since the source code is there and documented, you should have no trouble making it fit your purpose.

@ramstrong actually I'm not working on PTC community right now. I'm helping out with making a site for an organization for schools. I'm making graphics and things. Oh and then I have a powerpoint (that is so last year ) tp make for a school project and another group project in which we make a game together. Along with that, I'm starting to learn to use the ATtiny85 microcontroller (kinda like arduino). I don't even have time to update my own site or work on other personal projects (such as PTC). Heck, I'm not on here much anymore either. I will when they're all done though . Also I think he meant a miiverse community.

Everybody do a chirp. CHIRP.

I will post a design later, but if you have an android product, try downloading "Pixel Dungeon" They should look like that.Sorry apple users, but you will need to look it up instead...
Also, there should be a key randomly generated for each special room.

I'm going to work on the new weapons that I'll put in Apocalypse Rising. For the next update I'll have the Shotgun, and maybe I'll throw in an SMG. Starting small.

I have nothing really to say about myself.

THIS IS A PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT

You may have been scared when I said that this was an operating system for PTC. But I mean no fear. This is not your normal OS for PTC, This is a desktop based opertaing system with an intuative touch control, advanced search function, PC/Smartphone balanced Operating system. There currently is:

'SEARCH- 'Serach for functions, applications, Text files (.PTCT Extension) and much more.

Home menu- Below the search bar there are 6 icons for applications such as (Calculator, PTCT Pad (Notepad equivelent), Game center, settings, Drawpad, Add an application.

Locking function- Similar to the iPhone/iPad Locking Press the R button screen is locked (Goes Black) Press it again to unlock and back to the "Press A to unlock" screen

Add Applications to the home menu-From in the program. There is no way without editing code to create a custom icon, but will have your app on the main menu with the file icon (Looks like a blank sheet of paper)

Connect to a (Fake) network- This is pretty much you select the file you want to receive/send to another user and you can.

In the settings menu there is...

Delete applications

Connect to a network

Add security settings (Prevent people from unlocking and or executing files without a selected 4 digit passcode)
Here have a screenshot

Check the wiki XD I can't explain any answers to that question.
So I'll get started on sprites, which I'll have to ponder due to the fact that the possibilities are endless when it comes to sprite design.

I have nothing really to say about myself.

A glitch in PTC. Please read the warning I posted before running. PLEASE!

If Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat were all destroyed, 90% of teens would go insane. If you're one of the 10% that would be laughing at them, copy & paste this into your signature and hope it happens.

Similar to this, but on a larger scale. #=Wall S=Sign D=Door G=Gold, ^=Upstairs, '=Downstairs, C=Chest.
Special areas are always the same. For example, a Vault is a 6x5 area, 3x4 walking space, 3x3 trap floor, 1 door, and 1 chest with an enchanted something.
