Sweet Valentine

It's almost Valentine's Day!..... And so a great opportunity to offer a Gamebuino META to your beloved: -)

And just before offering it to him or her, install and launch this little game to increase the surprise effect with the pretty little animation that will appear on the splash screen!

Press button A to start the game....

It is a small inverted breakout... the bricks are small hearts aligned at the bottom of the screen, and the paddle is located on the upper part of the screen. The controls are also reversed:

- button LEFT to slide the paddle to the right

- button RIGHT to slide the paddle to the left

You'll see that it's not that easy... Will you be able to destroy the whole wall?... Not so sure ;-)

A very simple little game, which gives me the opportunity to propose you an example of a rendering engine for the High Definition of the META screen. By taking a look at the code, you will discover how to manage the display of a wallpaper and a collection of sprites, animated by a motion calculated using simple kinematic equations implementing the notions of acceleration and deceleration. I hope it will inspire you to create fun little games by taking advantage of all the capabilities of the META with High Definition.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to use Andy's emulator to test it... because it doesn't support High Definition correctly :-(

UPDATE OF 02/10/2019

A small bug could occur when launching a new game. Indeed, by pressing the A button too early (when the paddle had not yet finished its course when it appeared on the game screen), the ball not yet being instantiated, a Hard Fault (error 2) could occur... This is now fixed, and you can see the corrections I made directly in the code by looking at this commit.

Je ne suis pas encore parvenu à réussir le casse brique ! La balle va trop vite...

J'irai tout de même jeter un oeil au code à l'occasion ;)

haaaaaaaa Ce jeu me rend fou , excellent en tout cas ! bien pensé le gameplay, partir d'un simple casse brique mais avec une petite touche de personnalisation l'on va dire ^^

Sympa, et belle réalisation :-) Un nouveau jeu full-res full color, ça change un peu en plus (même si les pixels palettisés ont aussi leur charme)

Thank you Alban! The game itself is really simplistic (although I added a certain difficulty by reversing the controls and spatial configuration compared to the traditional breakout. There is only one level, but I think it is already difficult enough ;-) On the other hand, the main interest of this contribution is to give a complete insight into the making of a game in HD, with a rather generic rendering engine, although it can be extended or completed to further optimize things on certain types of sprites (in the case where they do not include transparent pixels for example). I tried to make sure that the code was well cut out, and clear enough on reading. I still have to comment on it more precisely... what I will do in the next few days: -)

Merci Alban ! Le jeu en soi est vraiment simpliste (quoique j'ai ajouté une difficulté certaine en inversant les commandes et la configuration spatiale par-rapport au casse-briques traditionnel. Il n'y a qu'un niveau, mais je pense qu'il est déjà suffisamment ardu ;-) Par contre, le principal intérêt de cette contribution est de donner un éclairage complet sur la réalisation d'un jeu en HD, avec un moteur de rendu assez générique, quoiqu'il peut être étendu ou complété pour optimiser encore davantage les choses sur certains types de sprites (dans le cas où ils ne comporteraient pas de pixels transparents par exemple). J'ai essayé de faire en sorte que le code soit bien découpé, et suffisamment clair à la lecture. Il me reste à le commenter plus précisément... ce que je vais m'attacher à faire dans les prochains jours :-)

Cool, allez au boulot Steph, on attend tes explications. Merci pour ce logiciel et surtout pour ton moteur HD.

Excellent boulot ! Parfait, j'ai pas prévu de cadeau, j'ai le droit de dire à ma copine que c'est moi qui l'ai fait ? :D

J'ai fait quelques parties et j'ai eu quelques crashes (Hard fault 2), j'ai l'impression que ça arrive au moment de perdre ou au moment de recommencer une partie après avoir perdu. Si j'arrive à le reproduire, j'essaierai d'être plus précis.

Okay, thank you Alban!..... You are the second (with @chris-scientist) to bring up the same observation. I will try to fix it quickly:-)

Ok, merci Alban !... Tu es le 2e (avec @chris-scientist) à me faire remonter le même constat. Je vais tâcher d'y remédier rapidement :-)

Ça y est ! j'ai pu isoler le bug :-)

Un léger petit bug pouvait se produire lors du lancement d'une nouvelle partie. En effet, en appuyant trop tôt sur le bouton A (alors que le paddle n'avait pas encore fini sa course lors de son apparition sur l'écran de jeu), la balle n'étant pas encore instanciée, un Hard Fault (error 2) pouvait se produire... C'est désormais corrigé, et tu peux visualiser les corrections que j'ai apportées directement dans le code en examinant ce commit.

Thread Autor starts in English and only get France responses... Just france things

Steph

You're right to point that out.

When we rush to answer on the forum, we sometimes forget that we have to make the effort to speak English so that everyone can read us... Sorry about that.

So I translated all my comments: -)

Nevertheless, your "Just france things" was too much....

The thread is translated in French too, so French users see French version of the thread. In a beautiful world, everyone would speak English, but we can't force our members to it!

Yes, exchange was just about a bug and the bug is corrected now. The creation is French / English but chat after is only in le langage of the user. Now, the exchanges have no more interest except you want know what was the error and how it had been solved (For solution, you can have a look on this commit). But you're right, the english user make you more active, the one able to translate from french to english and want to do it, don't hesitate to say it to let Sylvain coordinate and give good rights to do it.

Soru just tried this and it is incredibly smooth, the details in fullres mode are amazing!

Thank you very much Soru for your opinion.  And coming from you that's extremely flattering ;)  Not that I underestimate that of others, far from it, but coming from a development expert it takes on a whole new dimension:)

maybe in hindsight the translation was a bad idea, for the forums part, as it kinda splits  the userbase thinking
