I have opted out of the "Nerdy Nights" tutorial series for the time being, as they have taken on a rather steep learning curve near the last few lessons. I noticed that the last lesson I covered observed how sprites are loaded into the PPU and onto the screen, so I will try to summarize everything from that point to where the project sits now.
Controller inputs are read through register $4016 for Player 1 and $4017 for Player 2.Each button value is read in a particular order:
As I am looking to create a very basic 2 player game, I will be using only
two of the characters she drew up for me.
It appears that the code is acting as it should, but only when the character scrolls off screen and appears on the opposite end (I have left scrolling on as I thought it might add some fun to the game).
Once I fix this issue, here is my potential "TO DO" list:
- Higher Priority
- "Jump" code
- Adding 2nd player
- If I Have Time
- Attacking projectiles
- Registering hits
I will probably be ignoring the idea of start screens or even sounds, as I am running low on time for this project.
Wish me luck.
