Video: NES Programming #7 – Finishing Up Ship Physics And Added Game State Transitions (NES misc)

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

NES Programming #7 - Finishing up ship physics, and added game state transitions
Watch this video on YouTube.

Quote:

In this action-packed episode, I cleaned up most of our ship’s physics and capped the maximum velocity in the positive direction. I have to revisit the negative direction. I then added the ability to deal with game state transitions, but found that that introduced some undesired behavior. After getting it working, it’s still unclear why jumping directly to the beginning of the game loop is causing it to process the game states incorrectly and I’ll revisit that in the next episode, along with assets for the title screen.

Video: NES Programming #6 – Data Driven Collision Detection and Physics (NES misc)

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

NES programming #6 - Data driven collision detection and physics (sort of)
Watch this video on YouTube.

Quote:

In this episode, I change the collision detection code to be data driven instead of using hard-coded checks. I also fix the collision detection comparisons to actually be comparisons instead of using the SBC operation (thanks again to Sig Hewett for pointing that out in the comments of the previous episode). Finally we implement some bad physics on the ship to make it move a little more fluidly (or something like that) and then talk briefly about source control using git. (Sorry for the audio levels, BTW, I’m still working out a good way to get that leveled out)
