greetings from the east coast

Post by red moon » Mon Aug 12, 2019 1:43 am

Hello everyone, just wanted to introduce myself to everyone here. This is an amazing tool and I cannot wait to get something running to share with you all!
It should be a great deal of fun. I am going to work over the maze module as a test and will need some help along the way for sure. Well, I expect to anyhow!

I have a couple screens of some screen mockups with all my early sprite work and have begun to bring it in this weekend and set the palettes per object. I can get the exact look here, but I am going to try to get close at least.
i will return with video in a couple of days and of course share the file once its all done. So far its only 12 rooms and a end room (4 per zone so the dungeon, cemetery and dark dungeon being the zones. I wanted to keep this first one small and realistic. Its a pleasure meeting you all.

Thank you Woogz! I appreciate. I wanted a ghosts and goblins kind of vibe that worked with a maze crawler...I think I wanted more castlevania but its hard to imagine how that would look top down.
I will post a couple updates this week for the screen construction and object placement!

Thank you both, I really appreciate it! And I will ask for sure. You guys have all been really helpful.

So far, I been able to get all my sounds functioning, the title screen in and all 4 screen tile sets in. I then constructed a test level per type to make sure the assets were setup properly.

Next up is getting my player art functioning and enemies with 4 way animated movement in place. That will take a couple nights to animate and get them all setup. Then I will create the 13 levels for the demo and iterate on that for bit.

I may look around for how to give the player 3 lives as well, having a single life and making it through all 13 may be a bit much!

If you are using the Maze module, you will have to add Checkpoint type tiles to your project (with Lives):
