Diagonal shooting

Post by szemigi » Sat Nov 02, 2019 1:18 am

Firstly, I thank you the 36-level patch, I'll check it out soon.

On the other hand, I want the following patch for Keen 6: Keen can shoot diagonally (similar to Dangerous Dave).

Up-left shooting sprite: 6SPR0182.BMP
Up-right shooting sprite: 6SPR0183.BMP

Since I won't use the grappling hook and the sandwich at all. Moreover, you must press button A for up-left shooting, B for up-right.


(These 2 diagonal shootings can be done only in the air, remember!) I hope you can make it.

'Button A' is A on the keyboard? And the same with B?

I am not sure if this is possible, it will be interesting to see...

Keyboard buttons, yes.

Try it. If it's not possible, leave it. I'm just curious whether it's really possible.

I am really not sure. I'm pretty sure I can get diagonal shots, but getting Keen to use unique diagonal shooting animations is more tricky. I am going through a lot of code to see what can be done.

Some, but not enough for a patch yet. I think I might have something in the next few days.
