Choice of the type of games

Post by LAZARUS » Tue Aug 14, 2018 8:31 am

Yo! ;)
After some research, I see that they could not create games with scrolling.
Why not allow you to initially choose the type of scrolling, for example:
-without
-horizontal
-vertical
-multi directional (like mario)
And depending on the choice, change the creation method.

There was actually a bit of a discussion before fairly similar to this (www.nesmakers.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=249) where I suggested having a toggle for choosing the type of scrolling you wanted be it horizontal lock ala SMB1, horizontal free ala zelda II towns, vertical lock/vertical free, or horizontal vertical switch ala SMB2us/Metroid. However seeing the 'plugin'/code selection style nature of NESmaker where blocks of code can be swapped in and out savvy users could just drop in what scrolling handler they want and make the proper adjustments.

To see how the banks are arranged, you can checkout my analysis of the banks. This applies only to the beta versions but I imagine most of the info is still very relevant. www.nesmakers.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=248

Yes I saw this topic too late.
This story of banks interests me but first I must understand how nesmaker works because for now I'm swimming in sauerkraut. :lol:
