Development Diary : Mutant Monty: Amstrad CPC to Windows conversion
I've been working on a conversion project over the past few weeks, I neglected this project a couple of times before and am now begining to understand why there doesn't seem to be any current clones or remakes of Mutant Monty, converting this from the Amstrad CPC to BlitzBasic is a proper pain in the arse.

I so far have the level-loader and sprite loader working, the level maps are done and I have now painstakingly ripped all the tiles and sprites into PNG files, and I bloomin' well made sure that I backed it up on GoogleDrive too.

Next step... Well I see what needs doing when I wake up next, I've been up all night ripping sprites and I am really fucking knackered!, time for a few hours sleep now me thinks.

Watch this space!.

Got the animation tables working and Monty now does the full Monty in response to the arrow keys.

Got the pickups loader working, Monty can now go around collecting gold like a greedy little bugger.

Colectathons is what will be running in my head tonight, that gold only applies to the first level, I still need to place the loot in the other 39 levels. All the levels are done in Notepad, no level editors on this one. *Looks in mirror to see if any more hair has fallen out*

The baffling world of Monty!

Spectaculator on the AppStore has recently been given a bunch of Monty games, if you're willing to put up with the shitty onscreen controls.

As mentioned somewhere further up, I opted out of making a level editor and used Notepad instead, here is what the first level data looks like, I had plenty of nighmares from making a loader for that.

Been up most of the night, doing the baddie movement bits. I'm gonna go get some sleep now, but in the meantime, here's some more video footage.

Steve, check out Tiled Map Editor

Might try that editor at a later date, this one really needs to be text editor based due to the way I'm parsing the directives etc...

Been busy bashing out more code, got 9 of the levels working. No sound yet but at least it's playable now.

Steve, you should really apply a bloom filter to your code. I'm not really a fan of retro graphics, but the way your camera makes it look now is AWESOME!

It turns out that bloom was due to the lens needing a cleaning.

I figured as much - you should add the effect to your code though!!

I agree Mats, it would be a good thing to add the bloom but this games is using the 2D command set in Blitz3D and I can't be arsed to convert it to 3D-Sprites.

All levels done now, just need to add sounds and a title screen, it goes straight into game mode as soon as it's loaded at the moment.
