Retro World Series hosted a Tetris Attack tournament at LVL UP Expo in Vegas again this year, and I was defending champ...

It was a hard-fought battle, but I won the tournament a second year in a row, after a rematch of last year's finals against Fuum (@xeshirefm0@twitter.com) ^w^

... well, that was a silly mistake. ^.^; It turns out "load value" has a slightly different meaning than "load from address", but the instructions differ by only one character...

In any case, text drawing works again. ^w^

Still not quite working...

The corrupted tiles look different every time, so I guess that's a clue? But why would it be reading from RAM somewhere...?

Still working, very slowly, on rewriting everything so it works in this new format.

I feel like I'm back where I started 3 years ago...

okay, after FINALLY getting this code to work, after several hours' worth of debugging, and finding out that the original game's code makes an assumption that doesn't hold anymore with how my code works...

I can finally, finally insert new venture card text.

random glitch graphics 

Everything is fine, nothing is wrong...

Why yes, I've been having lots of fun with this project, why do you ask? >.>;;;

"Hmm, why is the vowel extender mark so short in this dialog box? Is there some bug with my text drawing code...?"

flashing glitches 

... how do things like this even happen???

It's so weird having code I write mostly from scratch work first try. ^w^

Show thread

Okay, fixed that. (It was a string I had explicitly skipped before, because I didn't know where it was being used.)

Still lots of work to do before I can move on to something else...

Show thread

Awesome, rewriting everything that touched SearchDialogDefinitionForA fixed the corruption bug that was crashing games when AI characters said anything! ^w^

... aaaand I immediately found another corruption bug in a dialog window I didn't touch yet. >.<;;;

I don't even know how Konomi's face got corrupted...
