Newo Fox v2018.04.03 (WIP) (Wii Game)

Owen still works on Newo Fox for Nintendo’s Wii.

Quote:

I added a combo meter that goes from 0 to 10. each enemy shoot adds 0.2 to the meter. Each bomb you use subtracts -1. each enemy is 10 + (10 * the meter). this should allow players who like to use bombs to keep using them and allow people who like to shoot to gain a higher fire rate and more points by not using bombs. does this sound like a fun system?

SCUMM-8 v1.0.1 (PICO-8 misc)

SCUMM-8 is a PICO-8 “demake” of the SCUMM engine that powered most of the classic LucasArts adventure games, such as Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion. However, it is only (heavily) “inspired” by the SCUMM engine, not a true replica!

Current features:

* Multiple Rooms (32+, technically)
* Pathfinding for walking
* Dialogs between Actors
* Cut-scenes
* Camera system (pan-to, follow, static)
* Room transitions (“iris”, cut)
* Customisable Verbs
* Z-plane ordering of objects/actors
* Global-level (background) & Room-level scripts
* Game start-up script
* Object dependencies
* Replace Color (to allow re-use of room/object gfx)
* Adjustable Room Brightness Levels
* Screen “shake” effect
* Proximity (between Actors/Objects)

Video: NES Programming #18 – We Unbreak The Broken Things (NES misc)

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

NES Programming #18 – We unbreak the broken things

Watch this video on YouTube.

In this episode, we test a few more ideas out to see if I can make my asset loading code work efficiently enough on the NES. After reaching my conclusion, I modified the asset tool to support swapping colors in the palette for the transparent color and saving the sprite changes back to disk. Next time, we’ll start working on tile mapping and loading the game backgrounds into the nametable. This will mean we have to start looking at palettes more seriously, too.
