I buffalo’ed my game and it’s pretty frustrating, thankfully, I keep backups on my cloud drive. I’ll be doing a restoration pretty soon and hopefully be back in business shortly.
A sorting method is required for almost every high score routine. Once we determine that player’s score.
For my game, I chose the Insertion sort. While not the quickest type of sort, it’s still pretty efficient, does not take up additional memory and it’s fairly small and short making it memory friendly. It is also non-recursive which also makes it memory friendly, as it won’t fill up the stack. I personally love the simplicity of the insertion sort routine.

First, I want to thank Allen Albright and Antonio Villena for helping me understand the logic for the high score list.
Every arcade game needs a high score display, you just want to see how high you can go and beat the other players that play your game. It’s been a standard in all arcade machines since Space Invaders. The idea is rather simple. You have a list of scores and initials, you keep track of your players current score when the game is over you see if your last games score is larger than the lowest score on the table. If it is, give the player the ability to enter in their initials, store the initials and score in the table and display the results.

As with everything, the code can and should be improved for speed and size. As challenging it is sometimes for me to write the code, there s always room for improvement.
I was prompted to make the code more efficient by a reader to the blog to do this.

This is a pretty simple task, but I do want to do a quick write-up on it.
We do have occasions where we want to clear our screen, this task will come in handy for a few upcoming features that we will be using.

The FASE engine is particular on the color scheme it must use for tile design. It must be exact colors.
To help out with this here is an uncompressed PNG of the colors that must be used with tile design. I hope you find this useful.
Take care and happy coding.
First of all, I want to thank Antonio Villena (https://antoniovillena.es/ ) for his help, knowledge, and patience with me for the information in this article.
I struggled with the next part, for some reason I was not able to resolve in my head on keyboard usage. I had to employ the knowledge of Antonio Villena in order to get this sorted out.
