Video: NES Programming #21 – I’m the map, I’m the map… (NES misc)

Michael Chiaramonte shows us once again how to do some NES Programming.

NES Programming #21 – I'm the map, I'm the map…

Watch this video on YouTube.

Quote:

After being off for a week we did some small optimizations, messed with how levels are loaded, and then played around with sprite 0 hit detection. It was a pretty fun stream because I was mostly messing around with the NES code and not the asset tool. I need to get map building working properly in the NES asset tool so we can get more serious about building backgrounds. I also need to figure out the sprite 0 hit detection better (or, you know, just figure it out)

Release notes:

New level clear animation! I’m pretty proud of how nicely that spiral effect turned out. Had to use some creative math to get it to work with the scrolling, but definitely worth it. #nesdev #nes #indiedev #gamedev
