Re: Please test my game! :)

Cool :) I still die of course ;) For some reason, if you restart the game multiple times from the title screen, the performance drops dramatically making the game unplayable... Somethings' off, time for some debugging ;) You might need a load level / unload level procedure, especially if you want to...

Re: Please test my game! :)

You finish it first run with ease? Damn I suck :lol:. Good thing I can cheat :D Thanks for the auto fire. I also noticed something is off with the sprite drawing: the black around the exhaust flames of the player's ship for example is not blended with the background. It is not visible that much beca...

Re: Please test my game! :)

Took me some time to get it running (wrong branch, the more I use Github, the more furiously I hate it. F****** confusing mess). The game is really cool, some things I like less: - the only difficulty level is impossible, at least for me - loading time (do you convert the mp3's to wave files or some...

Re: The Mandelbrot Set using the Chili Framework

Cool! I remembered that, on my 486, on a resolution of 160*100, it still took some seconds to render :) It's faster now but still not real time. For a fast zoom see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLMUfBikxTY at 3:15 if you don't want to watch the whole video :)

Re: Noob learns to code in 3 months

Dude, you're a machine. To make that in a few weeks from scratch, just wow. You're an inspiration for everybody here, if you can do it, others might just as well. About the music: it is great music, sounds a bit like oldskool chip tunes. Now these have very small samples, so if you could just replay...

Re: A oldschooler trying to learn to code.

So you made .mod / .xm s3m modules? Funny, my hobby consisted of writing mod / xm players ;) I love these old skool tunes still.

Re: I heard you plan on doing a Minesweeper...

Aaah, minesweeper, the defacto exercise for a recursive function. When I first tried to make it some 20 years ago in Watcom C it blew up the stack, had to increase it :lol: I believe the algorithm works fine. Why not make a graphical version? Some minor remarks: - since I use azerty, I had to change...

Re: Kling Klong - aka Fart-Annoyed

A cool game with a cool name :) I especially like the voice of your daughter at the end of the level that's so cute. Would you consider adding mouse support? Also, it took me a while to understand that hitting a monster will take a live (the original Arkanoid was not like that I believe), this makes...

Re: Snake Game - finished game

Hi Zedtho, if there is anything in particular that puzzles you, you can always ask questions about it on the forum. I did some non-windows programming (DOS) before so not everything is taken from the tuts. This game was made a year ago and uses the first Framework Chili made. I did *not* make it aft...

Re: Pong(after episode 6)

Hi Zedtho Welcome to the forums. Your game is cool, is the ball supposed to keep coming from the center if you missed it? I don't really know the original pong. What I would suggest is to make a class for the player, one for the ball etc. so you can regroup values that belong to the same object (lik...
