I am on a laptop, so I customize my Macros for movement. You should disable .northwest and .northeast (or any other possible movement), it does not call any gravity procs so I can travel in midair doing without falling until I start moving again.

The worst problem about this is that if you use it enough, it WILL screw up the camera movement horrendously. This sounds like a Byond bug but I'm not sure.

Ah, the diagonal movement was a silly mistake on my end.

It's a problem on the game's end. As you move diagonally, the camera will not adjust, pixel-wise. Thus, when you start moving left and right, the camera will become 'screwy'.


Thanks for the report. This demonstration uses the pixel movement library I created back in 2008. There are a plethora of problems with the macro movement along with the collision. If I get a chance, I'll implement the '2010 version' of my library.
Ah, ok. Just glad it's not a Byond issue.

Btw, I found another issue (very minor), you can still move to the right (but without a movement state) if you hold down .east and then start holding down .west at the same time. It looks a bit awkward. ;)

The demonstration is severely broken and this is yet another problem that makes this project embarrassing to look at. I will have some free time tomorrow, if I can remember, I will update this demonstration.
Great game but its soo hard to play

Thanks!

On a decent server, the game is moderately fast. If you have an average computer, such as myself, the game becomes more difficult due to the mouse procedures and near pixel-by-pixel movement being called.
man i loved this game!

Thanks.

I was working on a sequel (basically a remake that was faster), but I lost it when my laptop died.
