PixelBytes [Lexaloffle Blog Feed]https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=25079 HDMA + Mode 7 Like perspective effect. <p>Back in August I sent some gifs of this program I made alongside my dad so I could talk about old GFX. It occurred to me that I didn't post this snippet for others to use (unless you trudged through my discord message about it). I know many people have done effects like this since TLINE was released but as far as I know, my algorithm is unique, or at least uninfluenced by anything other than <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FVN_Ze7bzw&amp;amp;t=25s">RGME's video</a> on Mode 7 transformations. I wrote this before I knew anything about symbolab, calculus, or matrix multiplication, so it was all done with fuzzy mind logic. </p> <p>*Quick note: the rotation control is accelerated so it'll be easier on the eyes when showing the program to others, variable t is the rotation, tsp is it's velocity. To change that Replace tsp&plusmn;=0.0025 with t+=0.0125 and toss out the two math expressions below it. </p> <p>Feel free to use this code how you want</p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=99533#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_monipnuti-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=99533#p"> monipnuti</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=25079"> PixelBytes</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=99533#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Controls</p> <p>ZX, angle controls</p> <p>^v, Forwards and back</p> <p>&lt;&gt;, change distance to image (its an asympote value so it'll glitch at p=0, -p moves you 180&ordm; (0.5t) relative to p)</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=45231 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=45231 Wed, 03 Nov 2021 01:31:15 UTC Lily The Spider Barber!!

Of course this all applies to Kanji.</p> <p>So I�ve been itching to make a game with chinese characters and I know many of you want Japan Kanji for your Japanese styled games. Kanji and Chinese aren�t new to pico-8. But almost every use of chinese characters are put into the sprite sheet. I think it�s obvious that won�t work for most people since you can�t use any other sprites or the map. </p> <p>So I�ve been working on a horrible compression system to get vectors of radicals and work on combining radicals into hodgepodged characters. If you didn�t know, chinese characters are often made of smaller radicals (which usually function as their own characters too)<br /> For example: &#22909; meaning �good�, �nice�, etc.. . The character is made of two smaller characters: &#22899; �woman� and &#23376; �child�. My goal is to make the radicals as vector shapes and combine them into various characters. I�ve gotten the radicals down to strings, with 0-9 letters representing cordinates which will need to be changed to base 64 by using the letters, glyphs, numbers, and two other symbols which I haven�t figured out but should be fine. Then I need to get a function to read some variable of where to put and size each radical. I think that when someone would want to use this system they shouldn�t have a respiratory of 2,000 to 8,000 characters and instead pick and grab some for their use. </p> <p>So if you read my worthless plan I want to know what am I missing or what am I doing that is horrible? I will post a demo soon once I got the placement function down. If you ask me I got about half way with it all in about a day excluding adding the many characters and radicals which might just take forever. I should probably wait to post but I know something in my plan must be bad.</p> <p>Edit: Here�s the Wikipedia article on radicals: <a href="https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radical_(Chinese_characters">https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radical_(Chinese_characters</a>)</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32014 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32014 Fri, 05 Oct 2018 22:55:08 UTC Quadrangle Fill Function? <p>Anyone know of a quadrangle function?</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31564 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31564 Sat, 28 Jul 2018 14:54:41 UTC Ignore this <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53151#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico53279.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53151#p"> Ignore this</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=25079"> PixelBytes</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53151#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53151#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico53150.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53151#p"> Ignore this</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=25079"> PixelBytes</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=53151#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31355 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31355 Thu, 31 May 2018 19:56:24 UTC No Tangent Function? <p>There is a sine and cosine function but no tangent function.
