Now back to...whatever I was doing a week ago

Sign in to follow this  


You got a high score!!!11!!1 (that doesn't sound like correct grammer):

The high score table:

On the top of the high scores is my best score for the first four levels. Since Joe was already all over the table, I used my initials JMC.

When I have designed all of the levels, I will ask a few people here to get a high score. I will compile the default high score table of the ten best scores I recieve. Now hopefully anyone who helps me out with this will have a three letter name[lol]

Now I can finally get back to working on Level 5. However, I'm very glad that I went back and worked on these two things. Now the game is less buggy due to the checkpoints, and there is actually a reason to play it more than once due to the high scores. More than that, there is a reason not to just run past every enemy in the level.

Good job making sure the initials match the necessary format. For me the main concern is people not entering anything and having an empty string; that can really mess up a file parsing method. :)

I didn't think about a 'dark font' not appearing in a level with a dark background, that's a good point. One option would be to keep the yellow (which by itself is fine) and draw a small black rectangle behind it or something. As long as it didn't get in the way of seeing the enemies, that might work nicely.

You got it exactly right. My concern was that people wouldn't enter anything, and the saving and loading routines would get screwed up. However, I also wanted to give people the choice not to put all three letters. So, if you don't put anything, it will write your name as "___".

Putting a black box around the score counter might be a good idea. I was thinking maybe I should use a dark red font, because that would show up on every level. Now if it will look good remains to be seen.
