There is still a “glitch” in Release that I seem not to be able to track down.
In the video you can see it at 1:22 minutes or score of 1028 in the game – the bomber “glitches” for one frame. The glitch seems always to coincide with the removal of an object (score or explosion). This seems to be easy to find – the code for removing an object is 30 something lines… But there is nothing wrong with the code! Otherwise the game wouldn’t function at all.
In the video (over 6 minutes) that was the only occurrance I could find. It is SELDOM. On the emulator I have not been able to see it at all.
I came home from my holidays and did stuff that is not really game related but “beautifying”.
- a scrolltext (see image to the right – question, what is (vectrex-) special about that?)
- short intro to the enemies (well – names)
- animated title “RELEASE”
- added a demo mode (after the scrolltext finishes)
- added a highscore table
- and the ability do actually EDIT your name (3 letters)
And stuff like that…
A video of that – and one game up to 25,000 points (about)…
