Amazing work, I actually came across Go!Go! Madi! quite awhile ago and it looks professionally made, something you would see in a classic sidescroller, I absolutely love the design
Also I remember procrastinator mentioning something similar about a feature in CC that C2 does not have yet about displacement being possible in CC but not in C2. That would probably be vectors that aren't possible in C2 yet, I wonder if we can request it to Ashley or Tom.
One more thing, its a bit off-topic, but JESUS do you know animate all your sprites? Because there well made.. It reminds me of the classic super nintendo graphics we all know and love
The way CC and C2 handle this stuff is different.
CC actually has a Z plane so there is no extra crap required to do what I did for fake 3d. Like I said in an earlier post, it's nothing but converting the Y axis into Z and that's it. The Z plane is handled by CC. I posted the code in an older post above for CC. There is more to it than that like everything that needs to be on the Z plane is in a family and I believe the Z variable is part of the family as well. Then you add a number to Z like z=z+5 and that zooms the bits. Y converted to Z becomes the distance from the "Camera".
None of this is technically "mode 7" except i use the mode7 plug in for the ground and sky in the C2 - it doesn't look nearly as good as the CC version though.
My engine isn't finished. The CC one in theory can rotate 360 degrees but I have no need of doing that.
The C2 one is only a few days old and completely unfinished. The way I'm handling the sprites angles of movement is an illusion. Everything is on a sprite that is 2000px wide and 224 high. The image point is set dead centre so when you zoom in on it, depending on where the actual image is placed within that 2000px sprite will depend on what angle it appears to be coming from.
I'll post the C2 engine when I have it working to a level I'm happy with, as it is, it isn't handling the z plane for sprite properly and any attempt to correct it so far has cut the framerate down to 1/10th of the speed.
I miss the CC sprite feature of for the z plane of placing an object in front of another etc. Most of the Z actions for sprites are gone. So this is a lot harder than it needs to be.
Here's a vid of the CC version of my engine.Go!Go!Maddi! Welcome to the Fantasy Zone!!
