Jnr Platform Example #1

Previous topic - Next topic


"JNR" (http://jnrdev.72dpiarmy.com/) has got an excellent tutorial on how to do platform games.  As the original is in C, I decided it needed converting to GLBasic, and included with this post is the result of the first example.

I wont post the source code just yet as I need to put the original comments back in (and add some of my own).

In this example : Movement and Jumping
In the next example : Slopes!

Good stuff. Fast routine.

The next tutorial involving slopes uses an equation to calculate the 45 degree angle. I wonder if that's faster than pixel by pixel collision detection.


Very nice, It will be nice to see how GLB fares against the mighty C in this tutorial!  :good:
