The total cost of the projects at that point will be show at the bottom of the screen, together with the total project cost when all projects have been completed.</p> <p>A spend profile (the rate at which money is spent) is overlaid on the project timelines, and moves in real time as the individual projects are moved.</p> <p>For now, individual projects have a fixed duration (hard coded), and it is assumed that the total cost of each project is spend linearly. I want to add flexible cost rates so for example, a project spend rate can be set to relatively low at the beginning and end of a project, with a higher spend rate in the middle of a project, when the work is really in full swing.</p> <p>Lots more to do including autoscaling of the project spend profile, individual project spend profiles (rather than assume linear spend), on-the-fly changes to individual project parameters e.g. total value, duration etc...</p> <p>Anyway, this cart will likely have very limited appeal to most, but I thought I'd post it anyway!!</p> <p>Thanks for looking,<br /> Paul.</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32307 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32307 Wed, 21 Nov 2018 15:03:30 UTC Radiation Sources <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=50557#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico50556.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=50557#p"> Radiation Sources 1.0</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=14711"> Paul Knight</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=50557#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>This is my first posted cartridge.</p> <p>Its just a concept at the moment, to see if a fun game could even be made from it.</p> <p>Basically, you need to collect the sample vials (much better collision detection needed) before you are irradiated by too much radiation.</p> <p>As you move around, you build up a radiation map to help you avoid radiation &quot;hot spots&quot;. </p> <p>There are 3 radiation sources, and you can also mark them up by clicking on them using the mouse when you think you know where they are.</p> <p>Pressing Z actually shows where they are (this would not be enabled if I made a game from it) and X hide the sources again.</p> <p>Anyway, all comments much appreciated :-)</p> <p>Thanks for looking!</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=30968 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=30968 Sun, 18 Mar 2018 05:49:57 UTC Placed sprites <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=42683#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico42682.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=42683#p"> Placed sprites 1.0</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=14711"> Paul Knight</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=42683#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Hi,</p> <p>I was hoping someone might be able to help me with a 'newbie' question please.</p> <p>I want to be able to move a mouse pointer around, and then when the mouse is clicked, record the x and y position and place a sprite in that position. The next time the mouse button is pressed, a second sprite is displayed at the new mouse position, and then finally, a third upon another mouse button click. Further mouse button clicks will then re-position the first sprite and so on......</p> <p>This should leave 3 sprites on the screen, and record their positions.</p> <p>The current code does this, and displays the x/y position of each sprite. The problem I have is that a single &quot;mouse click&quot; event is hard to make and the code loops round very quickly making discrete sprite positioning difficult.</p> <p>Can anyone please suggest a way to remedy this?</p> <p>Any help would be much appreciated.</p> <p>Kind regards,<br /> Paul :-)</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29692 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29692 Fri, 21 Jul 2017 15:57:56 UTC Strange PGET results! <p>Hi all.</p> <p>A newbie question!</p> <p>I am using the PGET command to read the value of a pixel as you move a point around the screen.</p> <p>The code I have written seems to work fine in the X axis, but the y-axis is offset for some reason.</p> <p>If you move the point over the yellow square from left to right, the PGET command successfully reads the pixel colour value.</p> <p>If you move the point over the yellow square from top to bottom, the PGET command is offset by approx 6 pixels.</p> <p>Strange.</p> <img style="" border=0 src="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/files/14711/pixelread.png" width=160 height=205 alt="" /> <p>Am I missing something?</p> <p>Any advice would be very much appreciated.</p> <p>Many thanks</p> <p>Paul :-)</p> <p>PS:</p> <p>Code pasted below.</p> <p>x={}<br /> y={}<br /> x=50<br /> y=50<br /> cls()</p> <p>function _update()<br /> if btn(1) then x=x+1 end<br /> if btn(0) then x=x-1 end<br /> if btn(3) then y=y+1 end<br /> if btn(2) then y=y-1 end<br /> a=pget(x,y)<br /> end</p> <p>function _draw()<br /> rectfill (0,0,124,124,0)<br /> rectfill (50,50,70,70,10)<br /> pset(x,y,7)<br /> print(a)<br /> end </p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29354 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29354 Sat, 20 May 2017 10:46:41 UTC Frustrated by coding problem! <p>Hi,</p> <p>I've been dabbling in Pico-8 since yesterday and am loving it so far!
