Tonight I attempted to get a JMTrackr style music engine to work in Petit-switch.

The "Text Layer" seems to be rather limited.
I can print at any position, I can change the colour, I can change the font size..
.. But any changes made will affect the entire screen's worth of text.

I need to stop playing with Petit-Switch, and instead get back to regular AGameAWeek stuff!

So, today I wrote a basic minimal Framework in PetItC4 with simple enough functionality, but hopefully enough to allow for lots of variety in future projects.

I've added a basic DrawImg thing, along with my usual set of SetCol, SetAlpha, SetSize and SetRot commands.
I've created a sprite loop to draw sprites when required, and blank out any unused sprites at the end of the loop.
I DID originally try adding a SPCLR (clear all sprites) at the top of the loop, but that flickered horribly. You're not meant to do it like that
A little optimisation and things now seem to be running smoothly.

I spent most of last night reading (and/or attempting to read, with Google Translate's camera function glitching and popping all the text, all over the place) through what I could find in Petit Computer's Help files.

The game can be downloaded using the Public Code 424JQK3NJ



Head into the top right projects thing, then hit R twice to access the Online games, then hit X (iirc!) and enter the PublicCode.

Job done!

WAAARRRNIIIIIIING

If you set up a Japanese account to download Petit Switch, be absolutely sure that you continue to use the Japanese account when coding your game.

DON'T do what I did, and go "Well, it works in my Jayenkai account.. I'll carry on with that"

Because, when you go to upload your finished game, you hit a great big wall..
The account you bought it with gets (I think) 10 "Upload" slots.
You can "purchase Slots" for other users.. .. Except my default account can't do that, because it can't access the Japanese eShop, so can't upload ANYTHING!!!

*screenshots the entire code, and prepares to 1980's style "Type-in" type it all back in again, using the other account.

I spent hours, yesterday, playing with Petit Computer on Switch.
I think I'm almost done with SpikeDislike, and the second session went much smoother.

Today marks the initial Japanese release of Petit Computer for Switch (PetC4) and .. well, I'm a coding addict, so you know I HAVE to at least get SpikeDislike up and running.

There's a few stumbling blocks.. well, one, really, and that is that I don't know any Japanese whatsoever.

After a LOT of edit/undo, copy/paste, delete/delete work, I think I've found a style of graphics that works for the furniture of the game.

Today will be about redrawing furniture to suit the slightly new style of The Quest, or rather so all the furniture doesn't look oddly out of place!

2005 was a long long time ago, so the Quest-Qrew have been given a slight makeover.

As I plough ahead without too much of a plan, I'm having to make a lot of quick decisions along the way.

Heavy decade-old Sprite Reuse, ahoy!

Those doors look dumb.. I really need to rethink how I'm going to draw the doors.
Hmmm.
However, it doesn't look "awful", and I think that's ok!

I'll probably spend the next few days trying to get "just" the right style for the doors. Big enough that it looks like a nice big door, but small enough that it doesn't overlap the players when they're on the square "behind" the door.
Tricky to get these things just right, and I might yet wimp out in the perspective, and go fully top-down.
We'll see.

v0.986 - Added Laps to Mancala
I've added "Laps" to Mancala in the ShoeBox, but ... crikey, is it hard to keep track of!

AL is utterly baffled by this new style of play, so don't expect him to be a great challenge. If I can find a good method of play, I'll work that into AL's brain, but for the minute, he's a bit dumb in this mode.

.. To be fair, so am I, and the Laps mode ends up being a game of Pot Luck!

You can Play Mancala in the Shoebox, in the "One on One" section. The Laps setting is in the Rules.

I should really finish off Mancala's "Laps" stuff. I think that's probably going to be today's task.

But after that, what game comes next?

A smallish, but needed improvement to ALs Mancala abilities.
Players of v0.9858 should find that ALs a little bit smarter, targeting your possible captures, as well as aiming for his Mancala pot a little better.
It's not "much" of a change, but he is a bit harder.

I've not yet added Laps into the mix!
Maybe tomorrow?
