I turned on the FPS counter and yeah it was dropping well below 60. 39 was the lowest I saw. I changed some settings and now it seems to run mostly at 60 fps! Its late now, so ill play it some more tomorrow :)

didn't realise DS emulation was so system-intensive !

Many newer console could only be emulated with code translation from their native binaries to the host processor. Just like Java's just-in-time technology. Afaik, desmume don't do that (at least not by default) and has to emulate 100MHz. Each and every little instruction. Plus GPU and sound mixing.

Way to go, Pype.
You've been working on this for a few years. Must feel great.

Indeed. I counted 1 year for the pixel art, 1 year to get the engine ready to animate all the characters, 1 year game design, and finally 1 year to tune the gameplay. Plus 6 months so far for UI, powerup feedback, difficulty selection and things like that. Of course, these are "hobby years", not "indie years"...

But yeah, I feel relieve that I fixed everything that was really needed to be able to show the progress. I can't wait to get the final things done so that I can proudly show the game to people who made the games I played when I was a teenager.

Oh, btw, for those who haven't played it yet, but wanted to, there's an updated version with better sound effects.

updated again. HUD and menu fixes, gameplay polish. I promise there will be a final level if there is ever a future update.
