Hi All,

I wrote a small function to scale 8x8 sprites using a sprite number instead of using sspr() itself and having to pick out the x and y position each time.

I'm using it for the Toy Box Jam 2 where you have a spritesheet already made and you want to quickly resize things.

Updated function with feedback from @freds72 and @MBoffin:

function xspr(sprt,x,y,w,h)
    --sprt: sprite number
    --x: x position
    --y: y position
    --w: new sprite width
    --h: new sprite height
    local sx=(sprt%16)*8
    local sy=sprt\16*8

Original function:

function xspr(sprt,x,y,w,h)
    --sprt: sprite number
    --x: x position
    --y: y position
    --w: new sprite width
    --h: new sprite height

    local sx=0
    local sy=0
    for i=0,255,16 do
        if(sprt>=i) then

Probably already exists someplace but thought I'd share my own solution to the problem.

To motivate me to continue working on the project I'm uploading a WIP version of a platformer I've been making.

Feel free to offer feedback but I know it's rough around the edges!

This is my remake of a long forgotten 68k Mac shareware game of the same name, originally created by Robert Chancellor. I've updated the rules from AD&D to D&D5e and added some extra items.

Survive 10 waves of enemies to win the game!
Darkwood will fall if Derek falls in combat or the advancing hordes destroy the castle!

How to Play

Arrows move

Z/C shoot

X switches ship mode.

The Robot mode's weapon reflects enemy shots. If a reflected shot takes out an enemy ship, you gain a charge.

Decided to have a crack at making a shmup after rolling the name Striking Thunder in the #RNDGAME2020 jam. Kudos to Dan for creating the title screen.
