Holy freaking rhinocerous on a coke binge, batman, we have a KnP ROGUELIKE

...well, more a proof of concept.

But seriously, I present the first version of Krawl! At this stage, it's just a random maze generator. It takes a little while, but it's kinda mesmerising. Linear searching of a matrix has never been so much fun!

This took me some hours. Though I've gotta say, it is one of my proudest achievements in Klik & Play to date.

Next step is making it look like a mad proppa dunjin with rooms and naturalism and all that bebop, but I'm a little spent.

Edit: For those interested, the algorithm is a slightly modified version of part I of this page . That page, in turn, came from the pretty interesting (for the mechanics-minded of you) 300 mechanics page.

Fucking Christ cabinets you

Fucking Christ cabinets you are one rhinoceros bastard.

That's some Komplex Klik

That's some Komplex Klik right there. I think I've discerned the algorithm from watching the movement of the ball. I would suggest trying to reduce the amount of unproductive scanning by directly inspecting adjacent tiles, but I really don't want to sort through your 66 events. That thing's a beast.

Okay, now I get to look like

Okay, now I get to look like a huge jerk. This is your fault, cabinets! After watching your krawlbuilder for far too long yesterday, I couldn't stop thinking about that algorithm! So I had to give it a go today. It should work fine, but I've dialed down all the waits as low as I could without it missing collisions. If it starts to hiccup, the "every X ms" can be increased.

You jerk! I haven't yet had

You jerk! I haven't yet had a look at the source, but by gum the implementation is so much more intelligent.

Hmm, I copied the KnP DLLs

Hmm, I copied the KnP DLLs into the zip from Krawl (I copy everything from you!), but I think they're different from the ones that come with the educational version. I tried running it here (at work) straight from the zip, and it's erroring all over the place. Might your (probably commercial) version of KnP have a different set of libraries?

edit: tested it with randomly downloaded versions of the dlls from the internet, with no difference. I think it's actually the speed difference between the two computers. I guess I should slow it down more, because on a modern machine it runs so fast that a lot of collision detections get mixed up.

cabinets this is all well

cabinets this is all well and good but i can't smoke a cigarette :(

I actually worked the phrase

I actually worked the phrase "press C to smoke" into a conversation today about designing requirements for an online classroom system. It was for a class.
