Peer, tried another Black Hole – dunno if its any better though… It sort of gets “chaotic” after a while…
I honestly tried to do some Vectorblade stuff – and actually I really did! But not what I wanted… I wanted the “gaming” stuff finished, so I set out to program achievements. That lasted about 5 minutes, till I saw I had no way to display the collected achievements (or secrets for that matter) to the user!
So next thing I remembered – I started programming a new start screen, which will give me some “navigation possibilites”.
- UP HighScore
- LEFT Achievements
- RIGHT Options
- DOWN “READY PLAYER ONE”
Characters last name is: Rex
Characters first name is: Vec
Characters middle name is: Tiberius
Vec T. Rex! (- what a coincidence!)
But the good thing is – I started programming again – hope the current programming “rush” will last a few weeks – than I can someday actually finish this.
(technically this programming is “advanced” – since I do everything above in bank 0 – which means the interrupt must at all time be enabled, which means either I am not allowed to use VIA-SHIFT-REG, or I am not allowed to use Timer 1 of VIA. But somehow this is always manageable.)
Also programming now is a more laborous task than before – since I actually can not use my VecFever anymore. The usage of my special memory management (192k – 4 bank format) is by now so intermingled with the code, that I can not easily seperate the game parts anymore.
This means I use Vide to its fullest extend, and now and than (more now and now again, than than) my trusty self made PCB:
Which means I flash a lot…
