Reminder - still getting requests to join the verified members group without any indication of who you are or what you have shared that we can use to verify you own Fuze. Remember, we (the people running the forum) don't have access to Fuze4 license information and even if we did, it is not compulsory for you to use the same personal details to join the Arena as you have on your Nintendo account.
I don't know if this has been discussed before. But I was able to simulate a switch feature by using a loop and making sure I break on each condition.
if x < 1 then
if x < 5 then
// put the default options here since they don't match any conditions
break // don't forget to break here
The coolness of doing this is that if you have a large number of exclusive possibilities that you are testing for you can exit the checking as soon as you find the right one. Or if you're dealing with a deeply nested if .. then .. else this can cut down the depth.
Hi I'm Ben. I am a middle school student who likes to play sports and make games for fun. I like running at home with my parents or biking with my brother. My friend group and I are all a bunch of nerds who laugh with each other a lot. I have had FUZE 4 for about a year and enjoy trying to participate in some gamejams to show off my armature coding skills.
My contribution to the discussion is a bit out of the way but I think if makes the point:
I was looking through the comments of a YouTube video from the channel 8-Bit Show and Tell 2 about a recently released game for the Commodore 64.
There were, by and large, two types of commenters. Those that remember playing games on the C64 who were simply saying the game looks like a nice chill out game to play.
The other group of commenters were those who spent time programming their C64 either in BASIC, Machine Language or both who were discussing how the game was coded in regards to the use of Sprites and parallax scrolling - they were understanding the game at a deeper level.
I think this is true of how people will receive the Fuze Player. Predominantly, people use the Switch to play games and without any programming knowledge, tend to have unrealistically high expectations.
As a musician pointed out to me about someone who criticised my guitar playing - the harshest critics are those with the least talent.
I thought all the entries are superb and way better than anything I could come up with. Being an entry level programmer means I am going to be one of those who can appreciate the entries reviewed in those videos at a deeper level than those who merely play games.
Hey just a quick tip if you need to replace a lot of " characters with " + chr(34) + " and you get recursion limit exceeded. Split up your string over multiple variables and concat them when calling the encode function. I just had todo that and did not know initially where the error was comming from
Also another tip, copy your program to new file first (ctrl-c ctrl-v) and then do ctrl-h so you can easily replace " with " + chr(34) + " the only place it can cause troubles is with empty strings "" there you need todo manual intervention most probably
@Willpowered would that be both problems ? meaning the weird array index (for loop value) you can get after a while if you reuse the same name for a for loop variable in global and local scope and the stackoverflow with exhausted variable space when using c=controls(0) in local scope, or only the last one ? The test kat did, used a workaround for the 1st problem by not using for loops at global scope and placing them in an init function so i'm not sure that issue is also addressed (see very first post for example code that triggered this after about 5000 iterations)
A great place to start is to learn how to draw text to the screen.
If you head into the code editor and hit the help button and search for
the docs will guide you and you can even highlight the code and copy it
then paste the example code to run it.
Once you got the hang of printing text to screen, positioning scale ect
you'l want to start looking into controls.
There are some great video tutorials to help guide you also these should give you
the first building blocks towards your goal.
