Re: Metroid NES in Uzebox

Start more small and simple. Try making a Pong clone. For fun, make the ball a smiley-face which looks in whichever direction the ball is going.

Make one screen on Zelda 1 with enemies. That would teach you SO much. You can figure out scrolling and other stuff later.

Re: Metroid NES in Uzebox

Well, you'll need to know C. Learn about structs and memory management. My first Uzebox experiments was just moving Luigi on the screen (I decided to be different.) Move him and make sure the correct tilemap is drawn for each frame of movement. I use simple counters. Something like every gameloop in...

Re: Metroid NES in Uzebox

The map for Metroid is huge. You'll need to stream from SD or SPIRAM if you want to store it all. You won't likely get the same resolution as the NES but if you can adapt the maps you could make it work. https://nicksen782.net/UAM/APP_gconvert is a web app I built for graphics conversions.

Re: inc2png - encoding include graphics data to an image file

I did have a web-based version of inc2png. However, I didn't use it very often and didn't put it in the current online gconvert. I could though. Would you find use in that? The inc2png on Github probably works but it is an ancient precursor to what I currently have with the Online Gconvert. I'll upd...

Re: All Uzebox Games Online! (Cuzebox and Emscripten)

Hi everyone! It has been a while since I last updated the online games list. I just added "Circuit Puzzle" from artcfox. (https://nicksen782.net/UAM/APP_emu/emu.php?gameid=275) If any other entries are missing or need to be updated then please let me know either in this thread or in a private message.

Re: New Game: Circuit Puzzle

Awesome! A new Uzebox game!

I added a link to the online play into your wiki entry. (https://nicksen782.net/UAM/APP_emu/emu.php?gameid=275)

I look forward to playing this game some more! I would be interesting in you describing the technical portions of your game.

Re: WIP: U-Type (working title)

Yes, that link is incorrect.

But, good news! I found Cosam's Github! https://github.com/SteveMaddison . And, it has the source for both Uze-A-Move and U-Type. Perhaps I should compile them and update the online emulator and the wiki posts?

Re: Defender

The Uzebox Space Invaders clone had the aliens as normal tiles (not sprites.) A trick, but maybe something like that would work for you. If you have SPIRAM and can move things back and forth maybe you can have the enemies as tiles and any animations as ramtiles.

Re: WIP: U-Type (working title)

Are you talking about the game library online for the Uzebox Online Emulator? If it is missing something or a game points to the wrong thing please send me a private message about it and I'll take care of it for ya!
