Hey, OLRmy and friends. I've begun work on the post-jam version on Skeleton Hunter! I won't be updating this everyday, but when I put out new test builds, you'll find them right here.
Play v1.01: http://hitstun.bakamostudios.com/vogjam ... ter101.htm
v1.01 is a huge performance increase for low-end systems. In previous versions, I was drawing the entire screen tile-by-tile every frame, wasting a lot of resources. I now use a map buffer to store one screen's worth of pre-drawn map which is only updated when the screen scrolls or the room changes. I quickly redraw from that buffer each frame just like a real NES. It's about a 50% performance boost, though the refresh rate is still capped at 60Hz.
I've also added gamepad support for Firefox 29+. In Firefox, the Xbox 360 controller's Start button maps to button 7 and the D-pad maps to axes 6 and 7, so I've added them in addition to the button 9 Start and the axes 0 and 1 and buttons 12-15 for D-pads. Please try this out in Firefox and let me know if it plays nice with your gamepad. I want to add re-mappable controls, so this is the first step.
