...Did I mention this is the best thing I've ever seen come out of NESmaker?

coming from mr. IMADECUTSCENES that means more than you'd think :p

it's slightly more complicated than your workaround but totally doable within sane limits of "not touching the assembly"
i wrote more asm for this than i needed to, simply to preserve objects/states of objects/ai scripts. but at the end of the day, your cutscene idea could be (although overlycomplicatedly) applied to this just fine.

im trying my best here :p

here's a slime that walks on the ceiling! (he will drop slime drops every now and then once i get to draw the "projectile" and attack frames)

not yet, i think it will have issues going vertically. but i have to admit that i didnt try yet. (i only wanted ceiling walking when i made this.)

stage selection screen with cursor control and unlimited multi-warp, fully working :)
(i totally have to fix the sprite parenting on the character sprite's hair lol.)

I would be curious how you set your warpOut screen number? You 're using using 5 different variables / constants and a custom warp script?

I store it in a variable and call it out with GoToScreen.
it only has one variable which is being set by other factors.

I will do a write up and attempt to explain how this was made on a later date, though i propably wont post much code, as it's pretty specifically tailored to this game, this screen, and these graphics, so it will have to be rewritten in most parts
to function in other games anyway.

Ok, great work. Yep, no need to post all your code, just the technic you used/choose to achieve that result was interesting to know :)

- companion (possibly permanent) - not started
- scrolling stages - well.... sort of (bi-directional scrolling in progress)
- animated background tiles - working (cpu hog)
- stage selection, with possibility to revisit stages - complete

- health platforms - working (buggy tile animation, keeps resetting on room re-entry)
- wall-grab tile - not started

graphics:

player - complete
enemy graphics - 1/??? done (lol)

intro stage - not started
cavern stage - not started
temple stage - complete
??? stage - not started
??? stage - not started
??? stage - not started

final stage - not started



yeah.... still a lot to do. :p
just finished redoing the player sprite, much cleaner now, much better idle sprite
