This is the LunaLua code I'm currently using.

Code: Select all

local map = Graphics.loadImage("map.png")
local Obtain = false

function onTick()
	--Map Display
	if (mapdraw == true and Obtain == true) then
		Graphics.drawImageWP(map, 24, 24, 4)
	end
end

function onInputUpdate()
	if (player.dropItemKeyPressing == true) then
		mapdraw = true
	end
	if (player.dropItemKeyPressing == false) then
		mapdraw = false
	end
end
It's probably not the best way of doing it, given that this requires SELECT to be pressed and held.

They're basically Toads with Koopa shells in place of mushroom caps.
Tort (as in tortoise)

I mean if Toads are called Toads (as in toadstool)
Tort's a good name.

It doesn't really look too bad for what I assume is someone's early code, heck, I'm kind of in the same boat regarding every language.
If it isn't, that's fine too, learning is a continuous process.

The lack of "else"s is kinda weird but I don't know Lua, so I can't comment.

If I was making this in Assembly I'd make something like...

Code: Select all

Has the player pressed Select?
If so, set the flag that tells the game to display the map; if it is already set, then clear it. Else, ignore.
Is said flag set?
If so, Display map. Else end.
Or something.

You should probably ask around for help on like Codehaus or something, try to study the documentation if you haven't already. Make notes for you to reference later as you do your thang, instead of trying to memorize Everything. I'd try to give you a hand but I don't know the ins and outs of SMBX, myself.

Cute Wolf avatar btw. I don't know if I ever told you that in the past, but I might as well. Wolf looks like he'd feel nice to cuddle, so would the rest of Star Fox and Star Wolf (except pigma and andrew tho, nothing against pigs or monkeys, these two are just ugly).

Best of luck in making your game a reality \o/

This is where I got with the documentation. Where's Codehaus?

El Gurdyioza Update

Postby ztarwuff » 6 months ago

Just a little update on progress.

I've hit a slight snag in the number of leeks I need, which necessitated me restructuring the levels and normalising the number of leeks per level. In Wohlstand's PGE, this isn't so bad, as its copy and paste function is fantastic (as is its clone section ability) but moving the warp points is proving tedious. For stages where there's a large number of warp points, this is proving the biggest slow down.

Progress report!

I've actually overcome my problem from 4 weeks ago. Everything's good. I'm currently working on some bosses, creating my own air meter (or rather: cold water meter) and trying to solve the Bridges of Königsberg puzzle. The latter I'm trying to put into the ice stage; to win a leek, the player needs to pass through a set number of points only once. raocow inspired me to create this puzzle during his La Mulana playthrough, when he was trying to solve the door puzzle in the Endless Corridor.

I'd like to at this point, thank Sambo for his lineguide lua. Man, it's so much easier attaching a Mother Brain to a platform on the new curly line guides than trying to program in complicated attack patterns in lua.
