had to move the dim to the top of the file, that fixed it. weird.

Anyway, that's far too slow, maybe I'll do a wipe or something.

Is b3d the one with "lockbuffer" and "writepixelfast"? .. and don't forget to unlock buffer..

That "might" be quicker, though if you're redrawing too many.. maybe not..!

it helps with reading, but because my pixels are huge, rect is faster fro drawing.

Yeah, I figured that'd probably be the case.

I think it works well.

Good job Blitz only detects single screen resolution, I set this manually just to see...

Not sure if I'm spending too much time on the details when the rest of the game isn't finished...

Got the title screen and intro screen sorted, adding the HUD info now.

Probably have to play about 30 levels to get your daily target in.

I'm really getting to like what you're doing with this game.

A long time ago on the Blitz Forums. I got this tip from someone about a level I drew. It was that Is should add something to break the repetitive pattern in the tiles. This by adding some tile variations. I added a bump on a tile and some other variations.

No idea how I would start to modify the tile set today. Shadows seem to be my favorite lately. A redraw and variation on a tile set I did on 'Galactic warrior rats" from the Amiga turned out nice for me.
That screenshot got close to 30.000 views in 2 years for me. Eye candy seems to get clicks.

Looking at the intro screen though. That looks real nice already.

Good idea!



Now has 4 random floor tiles, 3 random wall tiles and 4 hazard tape tiles.
I think the worn out hazard tape is a nice addition.

A quick google search shows that the average level select screen for puzzle games has your basic grid layout of icons, and a notification of how man objectives have been completed, usually stars out of 3. I'm not sure I can think of 3 clear objectives for this type of game.

1. Time
2. Moves
3. ???

Multiply the time by an arbitrary *Rnd(1.3,1.7) or something. Then you can award a Normal Time and a Developer's Best Time star

Have you tried adding a shadow layer on the right/right bottom and bottom? This on anything which has height?

Not sure if you got the gpu for real time alpha blending shadows, or memory for shadowed tiles. Shadows always seem to add another upgrade to the gfx if done correctly.

IIRC, blitz3d using 2d draws didn't do alphas, etc.
If you write a "2d in 3d" engine, it can, but that's a right PITA.

Ah blitz..

It could be done with pre rendering. But editing and darkening certain areas in a tool might be quicker.

God dammit!

"File not open" or something would be more useful though.

Objectives ?

1. Number of moves, lowest is best
2. Number of undo's, 0 is best
3. Time taken ? Lowest is best

I'm not sure I'd punish specifically for undos. Maybe have undos count as moves. Or, if you undo, don't "uncount" the move.

If you say "RAWR, undo!!!" then people will be less willing to use the undo. But if you have it subtly act against their score, it's a risk/reward thing, you're more willing to use it, but know it'll reduce your overall score.

Slowly chipping away at this. 20 years ago I would have finished this in a couple of days.

Yeah, but 20 years ago it wouldn't have looked anywhere near as polished!
