Nice and retro!

I haven't played it ever, but I think Activision released a (highly praised) sequal/remake back in the day. I think it had too high system requirements for me :')

Calling it an engine is a bit too kind. But you're welcome to it as soon as it's not a mess.
Star Wars might be a bit of a challenge unless you can tweak DIV to allow more than 256 draw objects on the screen at once.


If you did I'd be able to finish this little beauty to the standard it deserves.

Well, increasing the draw limit is trivial

Also, you could do something similar in a dll...

How many draw objects do you want? 2000?

2000 seems to be a reasonable amount based on tests i've run locally. 16k is approx 5fps - not really usable in its current form.

Well a dll sounds nice but I've no experience with them. I could look into it I suppose but not until I've actually finished something.
Am I right in thinking that you're saying that you can easily up the draw limit? If so, I would say that around 2000 is a good number, at least as far as Star Wars goes.
Out of curiosity, does the power of 2 factor in? Would it then be 2048?

Its just a number. I'll set it to 16384 and push the new setting so you can test it after midnight :)

The extra drawing is working really well. I'll put the latest version of the engine in the wips in case you want to have a play with it. Be warned this engine is something that The A team might have come up with while locked in a cupboard with a roll of duck tape. But it's getting better.
