I got bored.

Playing Donkey Kong Land last night got me fueled back up for Game Boy stuff: playing, collecting, programming. Nothing on eBay that I wanted (well, that I could afford, anyway). So when I got real bored, I decided to play with Game Boy programming a little.

Now before you think "There's going to be a Frank the Fruit Fly sequel coming out next year," please bear in mind that this is just me goofing off with Game Boy programming. I'd need to think up of more stuff for Frank to do if I were to make a sequel. Since there's not anything I wanted to do when making the first game, it would be a bit tough to do.

 

When I'm goofing off with Game Boy programming I learn stuff. Well, I didn't really "learn" it, more like "realized" it. I realized that when I define sprites they aren't in the background data set, they're in their own. So this can mean more different sprites with better backgrounds because they aren't fighting themselves for space. My experiment had worked.

 

All you can do right now is choose between new and continue. There's music going, and Frank is flying around and Andy (the ant) keeps walking across the screen, but that's it.

 

I managed to stay awake to get my groceries. It helped when they came a little after 7 a.m. so I could get the groceries, put them away and then sleep before 8 a.m. when they said they'd come anywhere between 7-9 a.m. I woke up at around 9 p.m. and got sleepy a few hours later so I tried to go to sleep, but the trouble with that is my mind is almost constantly thinking up of stuff to do that I want to do but can't because I'm laying on my bed being bored. I had a nightmare where I was punching someone in the face and I woke up to realize I had punched the fan onto the floor! Luckily, the fan still works. That fan and I have been through so many nights (days?) together. At least 15 years. This because I remember taking it to the beach with me and the last time I went there was about 10 years ago and I had it before that.
