Just spotted this while having a look through your GitHub, very cool, can't wait to play it and see how you've coded it!

Very fun. Thanks!

and I like that I can use it for examples with movement speed.. terrain effecting speed and map making!

Oh, Nice! (Now the first song from F-zero is stuck in my head, and I haven't even tried loading this game up yet)

My record is 608 ;)

If Crabator is on your Gamebuino and you upload UFO-Game via USB, the loader don't know that the game changed, and the EEPROM isn't erased (so it still contains Crabator's high scores). You should always get back to the loader by pressing 'C' in the main menu to backup you EEPROM and avoiding messing up you saved games.

What didn't you understand in making your own map? You only have to change the values in the array "world". Each "0x" is followed by 2 characters each representing one tile. For example 0xDC represents a "block_up" and a "block_left". If you change the size of the world don't forget to change WORLD_W and WORLD_H accordingly.

Code: Select all
#define WORLD_W 32
#define WORLD_H 32
const byte world[WORLD_W*WORLD_H/2] PROGMEM = {
  0xDC,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xAD,
  0xF0,0x01,0x71,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0xD0,0x00,0x00,0x0D,0xD0,0x00,0x00,0x05,0x5F,
  0xF0,0x0C,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEA,0x00,0xF0,0x0D,0x00,0x0F,0xF0,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x5F,
  0xF0,0x00,0xD5,0x55,0x00,0x5D,0x00,0xF0,0x0F,0xD0,0x0F,0xF0,0x0D,0x50,0x00,0x0F,
  0xF0,0x80,0xF5,0x00,0x00,0x0F,0x00,0xF0,0x0F,0xF0,0x0F,0xF0,0x0F,0xCA,0x80,0x0F,
  0xF0,0x00,0xF0,0x00,0xD0,0x0B,0x00,0xF0,0x4F,0xF0,0x0F,0xF0,0x0F,0x55,0x00,0x0F,
  0xF0,0x80,0xF0,0xD0,0xF5,0x00,0x05,0xF4,0x4F,0xF0,0x0B,0xB0,0x0F,0x50,0x00,0x5F,
  0xF0,0x00,0xF0,0xB0,0xF5,0x55,0x55,0xF4,0x6F,0xF0,0x00,0x00,0x0F,0x00,0x00,0x5F,
  0xF0,0x80,0xF0,0x00,0xBC,0xEE,0xEA,0xB6,0x6F,0xF0,0x00,0x00,0x0F,0x00,0x8C,0xAF,
  0xF0,0x00,0xF5,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x66,0x66,0x6F,0xBC,0xEE,0xEE,0xAF,0x50,0x00,0x5F,
  0xF0,0x40,0xB5,0x55,0x00,0x06,0x66,0x66,0x6F,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x0B,0x55,0x00,0x0F,
  0xF5,0x00,0x0C,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xAB,0x00,0x00,0x00,0xCE,0xEA,0x00,0x0F,
  0xF5,0x50,0x00,0xCE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEA,0x00,0x5F,
  0xF5,0x55,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x55,0xCE,0xEA,0x55,0x08,0x88,0x88,0x00,0x00,0x5F,
  0xF5,0x55,0x50,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x03,0x30,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00,0x05,0x5F,
  0xBC,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xEE,0xA8,0x88,0x88,0xCE,0xEE,0xAB,
};


To know which value correspond to which tile you can see it just above the variable "world" :

Code: Select all
// array containing the different sprites
#define NUM_SPRITES 16
const byte* sprites[NUM_SPRITES] = {
  road,              //0
  power_right,       //1
  power_down,        //2
  power_left,        //3
  power_up,          //4
  sand,              //5
  ice,               //6
  start,             //7
  block_bouncer,     //8
  block_single,      //9
  block_right,       //A
  block_down,        //B
  block_left,        //C
  block_up,          //D
  block_horizontal,  //E
  block_vertical     //F
};

I was wondering how the level was encoded, that's pretty neat. Is the ability to save the highscore list a part of the stock library I'm assuming so.

Nope, the highscore saving to EEPROM is not part of the library. It's all in the file highscore.ino so you can copy/past it to your own game. Although mind that here the highest score is the lowest value here, so you might have to reverse it for your game.
The fact the the EEPROM (containing the high scores) is saved and backed up from the micro SD card when you switch between games is part of the loader.
