Re: Batch Games

@misol101

Thanks. I had a hard time adding stuff to make gameplay better, since the performance would drop really low, or it would be unwieldy in batch. But yeah, I tried to compensate with some extra effort into story.

Problem with my Perlin Noise implementation?

I was interested in procedural generation and tried to implement the perlin noise algorithm in Batch. It seems to work fine in some cases, however there are some really weird spots that just pop out of nowhere. Here is the code that generates a texture. After reading the article, I assumed that ther...

Re: Performance & Optimization of Batch Files

Wouldn't the first one perform the same, or even slower? In delayed expansion I don't think CMD "reads your code into memory" but expands all the !! variables each code block line, instead of expanding them before the code block.

Re: How to expand variable in another variable with string substitution?

Thanks Eureka and dbenham. I ended reworking all the code I was doing, since it was getting unwieldy down the line. Turns out I was over complicating a lot of stuff. But thanks for taking the time help :D

How to expand variable in another variable with string substitution?

Sorry about the confusing title, but I couldn't think about any other way to word it. Basically, I have some variables, for example: SET var[1]=12 SET var[2]=23 And another one, which contains the "var" prefix, but not that specific number, like: SET displayvar=%var[#]% I'm trying to use it like: SE...

Soul Lapse : Strategy JRPG with campaign, relics, and evolutions

About 2 weeks ago, I started coding for a Batch RPG with elements common to those in Japanese games, which I would later find out is a sub-genre of it's own : a "JRPG". This includes the usual cast of anime stereotypes, wholly unfair gacha systems, and vast worlds of fantastical wonder. At any rate,...

Re: Play a sound (.wav) file, without opening an application

If you're looking for anything other than a standard beep, you can embed VBScript inside your batch file. It uses an embedding method from dbenham over here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9074476/is-it-possible-to-embed-and-execute-vbscript-within-a-batch-file-without-using-a. At the top of the...

Re: Isometric Bullet Dodging Game

Ahhhh yes that makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the suggestions! I ended up not using that bit and instead just made Q for when you die. I guess if you press Q when playing you can't move, but I don't really see a way around that. Here's a final version with a proper menu and different map sizes. ...

Re: Isometric Bullet Dodging Game

Ya, SNAKE.bat is pretty inspirational. I like your modifications, but could I ask why you set errorlevel in the EXIT to a negative number? Does it have something to do with having a score of 1 or 0?

Isometric Bullet Dodging Game

I've always been fascinated by isometric designs, and so I decided one day to make an isometric grid generator. Naturally, I thought that it would be a really unique perspective to try to make a game in. It is just showcase of an isometric movement system using purely ASCII characters. I really trie...

HTA+Batch hybrid; sheet.cssRules.length fails when file is too large

After reading about HTA input forms on https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6581, I immediately tried to work it into a script I was creating. However, after the script grew larger and larger, it suddenly started failing. In one part of the Javascript in the HTML section, I have this functi...
