    Any pathfinding? Or does the enemy just take the shortest route to the player, ignoring any obstacles? Because you can totally steal code from aVoid if it's the latter.
    Well, i think i'll need the one with pathfinding, but the real problem is that i used Picy3's enemy AI and when i'm bumping into a wall, the enemy thinks i'm moving away from it, so it goes away from me, even through i'm not actually moving... So i guess i need the first one

    There are plenty of pathfinding algorithms out there, but they might use up too much of your remaining time translating them to smileBasic. A faster option would be to change the enemies behavior when it gets stuck. Maybe it teleports to another spot on the map? Or maybe it can break walls. Maybe it can crawl through walls, but doing so slows it down considerably.

I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself Yeah... But even through that i need a key or at least a code that will tell me at least the basic enemy AI (chasing), because i can't find any tutorial on SBS and i tried watching Petit Professor's videos but my game's code is based on something a little bit else and i don't really want to rebuild my code.

    I suppose it depends on how movement works in your game. In aVoid, I calculated the Angle between the predator and prey, then moved the predator a fixed Distance in that direction. Repeat every frame, and you have basic AI that beelines for the player. (I hope you like trigonometry!)

    Yeah, i'll try it somehow. Thanks

    Found my formulae if you need them: DISTANCE = SQR(POW(Y2 - Y1, 2) - POW(X2 - X1, 2)) ANGLE = ATAN(Y2 - Y1, X2 - X1)

    I'm digging it. Are you using the Graphic or Console layer for your dialogue?

    the text is just text (using the texttalk function) but the boxes are gboxes

    If you started before the contest started, no, I'm sorry. We're more than happy to take it as a regular submission though!

    That's true but no contest means no prize. Well I guess I can take my time developing it again, instead of being in a time crunch.

    For the record, all the contests here have this "must be a new project" stipulation to encourage design within constraint. Much like the theme. You have this much time, here's your theme....and... GO!
    I understand. It would have matched the theme perfect too! Maybe I'll make a new project real quick before the contest is over.
