After changing the scroll code to make the status bar work on my real NES, I realized that it was scrolling the Y value and I didn’t want it to do that because the background should be in a fixed Y location. So, we modified the scrolling to make it split the screen properly so that we could wrap the stream with writing some text to the status bar. Also, we worked on the movement of the ship so that it was confined to the area between outside the status bar and is no longer allowed to wrap around the edges. Thanks for those who watched it live and see you Monday! Have a great weekend.

The Legend of Dracenstein v2018.06.07 (PICO-8 Game)

Get High Scores by collecting Blood Goblets, Completing Levels Fast or Destroying the hated enemies! 18 Levels (though you’ll likely see around half a dozen on a play through as each screen has two possible exits). Evade Captain Nemo in the Nautilus! Sacrifice The Artilleryman to his own washing machine and collect his blood! Beware the Ossuary!

Today I fixed some odd bugs in the way mirroring worked on real hardware, the way that the status bar flickered on real hardware, and then took on the task of getting the map export to properly export metatiles in the correct order so that we had a consistent way of loading palettes into the PPU. I discussed how we will handle loading the palettes directly from generated on the next stream as well as how we will likely handle multiple levels. Hope to see you Thursday! Thanks for those who watched!
