[2014] Back to Color (AntonioND)

-Description:
Here it is my first GBC demo. I started it like four years ago, but stopped after doing 3 scenes (not great, that's why I stopped). I’ve coded the rest in just a few weeks, in fact I started doing new effects a few days before the GBDev compo announcement. So... that's it! I hope you like it!

I've coded it, and made the music, the only thing I haven't done is the train screen graphics and the credits graphics. Oh, and it shows a little credits screen in non-color gameboys! If you want to skip some parts, hold up/right/down/left when the demo is loading if you want to skip 1/2/3/4 songs.

I've attached the binary and some screenshots. It works on most emulators (the pentagon thing has a problem with priorities in old versions of VBA, but BGB, Gambatte and VBA-M emulate it correctly) and, of course, real hardware.

And here's a little video for the lazy ones smile

Download is in the blog, or here:

The demo binary should be the same as here.

Re: [2014] Back to Color (AntonioND)

This one is definitely my favorite.  I especially like the train scene and the city.  The only thing I wish is that the user could actually do something in the game instead of the game being practically a movie, but maybe its just me.


Working in Gameboy BASIC.

That's because it's a demo, not a game. It's meant to be like a movie. -_-U

Re: [2014] Back to Color (AntonioND)

Well, unless you say what problem you are having I can do nothing. You need RGBDS and 'make', and it's as simple as going to the folder, changing the paths to the RGBDS binaries in the Makefile, and typing 'make' in a terminal.

Re: [2014] Back to Color (AntonioND)

This doesn't use GBDK, it uses RGBDS https://github.com/bentley/rgbds And it doesn't use bat files, you need to install MinGW, Cygwin or something like that so that you can use the 'make' command. I use Linux so I can't really help a lot regarding this if you use Windows.

Use Google translate to read this, maybe it can help: http://wiki.ladecadence.net/doku.php?id … nsamblador There was an English translation but I think it's offline now.

Use GBDK if you want to code in C, RGBDS is for assembly.
