Okay help me troubleshoot through this, I'm new to running QB on DOSBOX

    There doesn't seem to be a really good way to make the latest easiest to find unless I keep editing the first post or create a new thread... Anyway. Here's the latest demo. Still the same three levels but a bunch of collision detection bugs have been fixed between enemies, items, and the player. Controls... more

      • If you "cd" into the extracted folder and then open "qb xmas2021" it should use the ".MAK" file to open the dependencies. If that didn't work, you can use File->Load File to add "helpers.bas" and xmascom.bi". To see the .BI file, you'll need to enter "*.BI" in the file name and hit enter. Then it... more
    • The game engine is done. Wow. - Puckdropper, Sat Jan 08 2022 2:59pm
      Yes, there's a few spots where the 16x16 block touch detection got me, but what can you do? I really like how blend doesn't burn energy when standing, it adds to the strategy. It's also kinda neat how Blend hides Santa when a Snooper passes him, making him MORE invisible. Document it and it's a feature,... more

Yeah, the "trick"iness of falling in that spot has sort of become a problem I'll need to fix now that I'm creating more levels. It makes falling through a one tile hole hit or miss depending if the player was running... more
        • Have you tried playing level 3 by going down first? - Puckdropper, Wed Jan 12 2022 12:00pm
          Is that even possible, within the limits of Christmas Spirit? At least if the fall doesn't work, the level is still winable. Exactly my thoughts on the high score table. Maybe #10 should be past level 1 and one gift delivered and the top should be about halfway through level 3. A different enemy... more
          • No, haven't tried that yet. - Erik_, Thu Jan 13 2022 2:36pm
            I can see that way with blending taking most/all of your spirit. I think I might have the fall issue fixed... or better than it was. I'll need more testing. So far, this definitely works fitting from a to z (and the opposite dir) "x"s are the floor sprites. xxxxxxxxx ....x..A. ....x.xxx .Z....xxx... more
