Up and coming updates

No this project isnt dead. The next version of NextBuild is near completion, some of the highlights:

Added Shiru's AYFX engine, can be manually called or initiate an IM routine

Added Layer2 Plot : PlotL2(x,y,colour[0-255])

Added PlotLine(x1,y1,x2,y2) - Bresenham Line for Layer2

Added Box(x1,y1,x2,y2) - Draws a box on layer2

Added ReadMouse() - Reads mouse x/y left/right/middle/scroll wheel inputs

 

The line method has taken much longer than I had hoped but its at a stage now where it is quick enough, but there is still room for improvement. Its probably best I release soon otherwise I will continue to tinker with the code forever. Thanks to Uwe Geiken who offered some optimisations on the layer2 plot.

 

I am also still no 100% happy with the new method of initialising the SFX / Music IM routine. I've tried to keep it as simple as possible but the nature of IM stuff means there will always be a little bit of work required should you want to do anything advanced such as store sfx/music in alternative banks. Allowing for this complicates the initialisation but we shall see what the feedback it like.

Release imminent
