Side-Scroll Demo, megaman animation, full screen Direct Draw 1.0 cpp source | EXE Seems to work fine on all the Win machines I've tested, so I'm making a full game with this. Tiles are 50 x 50 pixels each, display 800 x 600 with clipping. VazGames.com Phil P [edited by - PhilVaz on March 27, 2004 1:27:48 AM]

Pretty impressive!

The animation is a little jerky at times, but very well done nevertheless. You might want to consider making jumps shorter and faster though.

Smoothed the scrolling a little bit. Same link as above.

Thanks for the comments. Need to figure out collision detect with platform tiles next.

Looks good, runs smooth.

Found two issues, one major and one minor.

When you run right, then left at the start, the camera ''snaps'' suddenly when it realizes its leaving the borders. Doesn''t seem to do this on the far-right.

Also when you''re jumping and land, you need some sort of pause or animation or something. If you just keep jumping, your legs never come back in to land, looks pretty funny =P

You are correct. Need to fix that for the left side. Thanks. Its called the "polish" in that article by Geoff Howland. I''ll try to fix these when I make a side-scroller game out of it. A month or two depending how much time per day I spend.

Yeah, looks weird. Also I need to figure out how to check for how long you hold the CTRL (jump) key, for three different jump heights, very short time for very short jump, medium time for med jump, and long for highest jump. More polish.

Works fine for me. Are you using time based motion? It doesnt really feel right to me, but that may be just me.

Yeah, maybe too slow motion. I''m trying to make it feel like the original Super Mario Bros, maybe need to speed it up a bit. Was using a delay between frames.
