Drawing tiles, map format & HELP NEEDED

Twilighte: I nearly forgot you asked me about how to draw the tiles... I will illustrate how I am doing in NOISE, or more specifically, how I am rendering in the WHITE room editor: As I told you I am using the "draw stacked" method, which is just one of the methods I tried. This is the main loop: xx...

Another progress report

Greetings, More progress. After some tests with doors (I still have not decided how they will work...) I decided to move onto another topic that needs attention. As I got no feedback :( and noone volunteered to do it, I started to code a room editor for WHITE. http://www.defence-force.org/ftp/forum/...

Hey Chema, apologies for not replying. As you have possibly guessed, i am now heavily into trying to get my own isometric engine working. Don't worry, I have already noticed that! If you want to discuss any problem you might encounter..., I might have dealt with it. When you are desparate for the m...

Re: Object Overlap question

I have two objects, each with X,Y,Width and Height properties, and i'm trying to find out if they overlap and where they overlap. I need to plot only the area they overlap with each other. Here is the code i currently have... You are using the same method I use for checking intersections, so I supp...

Progresses..

Greetings, Thought it would be a good thing to post a kind of progress report, just to make sure nobody thinks I have not been doing anything.. :) Stairs are working now. I changed the way they were handled, so everything is easier. When a character tries to go up/down stairs, WHITE takes control an...

Some news...

Greetings, Even if it seems WHITE+NOISE developement is stalled, it is not... at least not totally. I have been very busy lately, and will probably be for a few more days, so don't expect any spectacular advances for now :) I have been working on some internals of the engines and planned a few enhan...

I have to say one thing that has always confounded me is how to plot the objects. I can develop greatly compact gfx and easily display with full mask, but what rules do you use to govern which objects are plotted first. I know it is basically the ones on the current level and furthest back moving t...

Greetings, Just a quick note, so you know I'm still alive. I have been really busy these days (today one student I am tutoring is presenting her PhD...) so no advances :( Damn, forgot about that rule. I can see the benefit in the code of keeping objects same size. However, having the flexibility of ...

Dbug emphasised how cool it would be when the eagle ship is mapped so i spent last night doing it. Here is the result... [\quote] That is impressive! I like that design a lot! We should use it, of course... Please note only the main body of the ship has been sectioned off into "Walls". Perhaps we s...

I was thinking about this last night (actually about 4 oclock this morning :) ). If the position of each sprite is calculated using some sort of X/Y/V table, would it be possible to "bend" this table to accomodate a slope instead of a staircase? Maybe a little too ambitious, but me thinks a worthy ...

Hi Chema, apologies for long delay, but both needed time to get my new system up and running (Dual TFT and new pc) and to absorb the format. Long delay? LOL You will see what *long* delay is by the time it will take me doing anything, for example stair climbing :) One big thing occurred to me. In S...

Sorry for the delay in the response... Did I mention I had very little spare time? :) Ok. To answer some questions, let me try to summarize the important things. What I would like is to recreate moonbase Alpha (at least part of it) from the old series Space:1999. I don't know if you are used to it, ...

I could probably add privates chanels, but do we really need that ? The forum is not very "high traffic", and I guess it can be of interest for everybody to follow the development of the whole thing ? I let people decide, I just wonder if it's possible to not display private chanels at all for peop...

Perhaps you would like me to do some graphics for the Space99 thing? I can provide all that you require so long as i know what size each object/wall should be, the number of objects that may exist, the size of graphic partition in the game, the type of graphics required, etc. That would be indeed w...
