cool to hear. I hope to be able to integrate celtic II to Metroid II: Evolution, because the insane amount of subroutine is what make the entire game run very slow, especially on the 83+. If it's the total memory usage that cause problem then I can't do much though sad.gif. Still, taking down the 300 8x12 maps in Metroid II from about 30-40 subroutines to 5 would pwn, same if i manage to have the programs copied to XTEMPxxx all merged together and just recall the part of code i need for my routine

I would stick with dual layer ASCII, it looked pretty neat to me. Else, then I would move to xLIB

Well so far, here's what I'm planning:
  • Dual-layer ASCII graphics, with more graphics manipulation
  • Extensive use of Basic's subprograms and my new relatively fast dynamic subroutine system.
  • Plenty more powerups--missiles, energy tanks, Space jump, hi jump, beam stacking
  • A couple of wavering powerups; morph ball and suits.
  • 3 worlds, with X number of rooms each (although my limit per world is 18*18, that should tell you something).
  • Obviously, a way longer gameplay time.
  • Speed! I did some major testing, Metroid Pi runs much faster when the parser doesn't have to go through all the hard-coded stuff. Therefore, combining subroutines with the ability to change themselves to suit, say, a new beam, or missiles, will be very beneficial. And, not quite so dependent on variables, but rather on constants biggrin.gif.

Maybe part of your engine could be incorporated into the secret project, or vise versa. The tile routine works pretty fast tongue.gif

I'll tell you that it involves Celtic2 and prgmZASSEMB1. (That's one of the subprograms of the OTBP assembler).

That program takes the program whose name is in Ans as a string, and returns that entire program as a string. Complete with newline tokens that appear as spaces.

Combined with the program manipulation abilities of Celtic2, it works well and pretty fast. smile.gif
