    8bit Graphics Editor

    Hey, Long time no nothing. Anyway, I'm gonna have computer access soon, and was redownloading everything I need for Fenix, but I can't for the life of me remember what the program I was using to make graphics. Anyone got any recommendations for 8bit graphics editors, free ones that is? LA...

    Howdy, Yesterday I tried to add a brightness setting to my game, strangely enough, the background stopped working as well as maybe a couple of other things. The first obvious thing to do when new code breaks something is to take it out, which I did, the background still didn't work. Since then...

    "straight To Hell"

    Heyo, I wasn't going to release any more betas before the competition, but since there's still a lot of crafting to be done before the game's finished, I wanted input from people on what they think would make the game better and if anything needs changing. This is a gameplay test, not a level...

Every single time I try to...

    Beta 4 Of My Non-shooting Game!

    Heyo, I finally figured out the cod damned problem in my code, it was all cuz of SWITCH not accepting strings on GP32 but it working fine on PC. Anyway, the combo system is in, the enemies can be slashed and the bullets can be reflected. This is a Fenix game, you will need the Fenix runtime...

    Serious Trouble

    Heyo, This is a plead of sorts, I've coded the combo system into my game and it works really well in Flamebird, but it crashes my GP32 whenever I try to slash. I don't know why this could be, the FPG should already be loaded, and I've been through the code loads of times and I'm sure there...

    Too Much!?

    Ok, So I'm trying to complete the game that is being demoed in the beta section, but when I try to load my main FPG, the GP32 resets. Uncompressed the FPG is about 300kilobytes, I know it's a lot, but 8MB of RAM shouldn't be killed by this, surely? I even tried reducing the graphics size, so...

    Palette Troubles

    Hey, So far I've been using 16bit graphics since I don't have to think about anything, just make graphics, import into .fpg, make game. Now I want to use 8bit graphics and I'm getting stuck no matter what I try. Basically, I need to know how to go about making and or/editing palette files and...

    God Damned Angles!

    Howdy, I'm having trouble getting things to move in directions other than the four main ones. I know that you need to use "angle" and "advance". The problem with that is that because the resolution is quite low, it calculates things wrong when it's rounding for the low resolution. This just...

    What Are Your Favourite "gimmicks"

    Animation And Limitations?

    Heyo, I've been reading up and practising with Fenix, but I was wondering a few things. How should I go about character animation? I was thinking of programming the animation myself with an array for each action with a frame defined in each variable in the array and then using states (eg...
