In this stream, I added the ability to turn on a grid in the asset tool and toggle collision in metatiles by clicking on the individual 8×8 subtiles in the metatile. This information is saved in a 2-byte bit mask and on Monday we’ll be exporting the information for the NES and implementing the collision detection. As always, thanks to all those who watched the stream live! See you Monday – have a great weekend!

I finally got the tile loading and attributes loading properly in this stream. We have one more minor task to take care of on Thursday, but even with reloading the entire attribute memory in the NMI, we’re getting smooth scrolling (unlike before). We will start working on background collision next stream (FINALLY!). Thanks for those who watched. See you next time!

In this episode I worked on trying to squeeze in my calculations for row updates and attribute updates into the NMI and after trying to chisel away at it, determined that I’d have to do that calculation in the game loop and only do the PPU updates in the NMI. That’s where we’ll pick up on Monday.
