This is my *first* post to stellalist after about 4 years of lurking. After gauging interest for an updated hockey game for the 2600, I decided to start my first game (working title is RealSports Hockey).
For the rink, I've decided to make the width such that PF0 is not used (it starts 16 pixels in) and only PF1 and PF2 need to be updated every 4 scanlines.
I'm also updating COLUBK every 4 scanlines to simulate the end, blue and center lines, but I'm not sure if I'll have time to do this once everything else is implemented.
Line1: Playfield / Puck Line2: Player1 Line3: Background / Puck Line4: Player2
Line1: Playfield/Background Line2: Players/Puck Line3: Repositioning Line4: Players/Puck
Anyway, here's the kernel as of today. If anybody can give me some insight as to what to do next I'd appreciate it!! Since this is my first game I'll a little intimidated by how I should proceed.
Thanks for letting me present my idea and hopefully I made some sense.
I addmittedly didn't look a the code so far, still I hope *I* made some sense ;-)
