Shooting at monsters! Monsters shooting at you! Boss barriers! Screen triggers! A swath of fixed bugs in the engine, and a handful of fixed features of the tool!

This is a super quick run down of new things. It is meant to by synthesized with your knowledge of the first run of beta tutorials, with a quick refresher of necessary steps, if creating from scratch.

In this episode we took a page from The Guardian Legend and got a proper status bar working (although there’s no actual data there right now). From there, we started working on how to load rows from the map data as the level scrolled and ran into an issue when I incorrectly thought we had to divide by 8 instead of 32. Oops! Makes a big difference as it turned out. We also covered how some basic 16-bit operations work on an 8-bit processor like the 6502. Thanks for watching! See you next time.

In this episode I got the MMC3 IRQ working once I realized the I had to re-enable interrupts on the CPU. After that, we saw what happened as you mess with the nametables while scrolling and experimented with one solution to vertical scrolling and scanline counting. I need to some more research to see how other games do this. Thanks for watching and see you next stream!
