just a thought. Anyone know if theres a platform engine out there that's ready to be downloaded and modified that includes horizontal scrolling? If so please let me know if not guess i'll be making my own, which isn't a bad idea but would save me some time :]
almost all the menus for my game is done. sprites and animations are half done. after menu is done im going to make a new file and make/modify a platformer engine and then add to the main file, wish me luck ;] [log] 500+ lines of code and counting :)
I found a way to actually encrypt stuff. This method is fool-proof. Unless you have the key, you cannot correctly generate the message, and unless you have the message, you cannot get the key! The key isn't stored anywhere either, so someone cannot, say, get rid of the password check for the file.
Wrote a ROT(n) codec. Needed to take a break from dungeon gen :) Back in the day, people used to use ROT13 encoding in newsgroups to prevent each other from accidentally reading tv/movie/book spoilers, or punchlines to jokes...pretty handy!
