This is something I've been playing with during lunch breaks at work..
type in world1.1 as the level to load
closed apple = JUMP (right ALT in applewin)
Gravity, and the entire world is out of phase by 90 degrees, because
I used the built in text screen scroller. The goal is to make a %100
BASIC Super Mario Bros. game.
not planned on being supported are: background sprites
What works: walking, jumping, collision detection (KIND OF), level
editor, level scrolling.
you can only jump from a standstill. I know how to make it work,
haven't done it yet.
To do: fix physics. Add enemies. Detect collisions with :
enemies, power ups, coins, presence of pipes below mario
when he pushes LEFT, changing marios coordinates when
he is on a moving platform.
I prototyped Super Mario Brothers in BASIC. I figured out the game logic is very simple. So now I need to work on getting the Hires tile-engine running ..... Update, Antoine had a good idea to scroll the screen 1 byte at a time. Saves me alot of coding to get this prototype running.
MMphosis posted a cool bit of code to draw mario on the hi-res screen in color:
0 H = 2:V = 2:M = 130:N = 70
1 HGR : HCOLOR= 6: HPLOT 0,0
2 CALL 62454: FOR Y = 0 TO 191
3 READ A$:L = LEN (A$):X = 0
4 IF L = 0 THEN 80
5 B = Y * V + N: FOR I = 1 TO L
6 C$ = MID$ (A$,I,1)
7 P = X * H + M:E = P + H - 1
10 IF C$ = "." THEN 70
20 IF C$ = "O" THEN HCOLOR= 5
30 IF C$ = ";" THEN HCOLOR= 4
40 IF C$ = "@" THEN HCOLOR= 7
50 FOR Z = B TO B + V - 1
60 HPLOT P,Z TO E,Z: NEXT Z
70 X = X + 1: NEXT I,Y
A screenshot of the drawing and scrolling code working with the BASIC MARIO level format!
I didn't change anything... I just wrote a parser in BASIC to cycle through the level tiles, and
display them on screen. So I have world1.1 to world1.4 entered, and have 4 levels to play once
I get it all working...
In the upper right is the same screenshot of SuperMario Bros. running
I've been stuck in Mario Land!
