Then I'll publish the source code *after* your project is released, to avoid giving others an early advantage.Currently we can have 10 stages (Goro Lair, Pit MK1, Armory, Dead Pool) without much trouble; Wasteland (11) requires re-coding which I am looking into, plus I'm reserving extra space for possibly 4 more maps (either future hack or other game).Funny enough, I noticed that Living Forest + Goro's Lair have a duplicate palette - meaning only 2/3 palettes are fully used. I did have to remove a color from Armory + Dead Pool + Wasteland to make them fit within MK2 engine. I'll show this difference later.Next I need to expand the IRQ engine, which will take time as the original is a template copy-paste mess. Then I have some of my own ideas to look at, see what more can be squished out of this game.EDIT: It can handle 12 stages without majorly breaking anything.

Quote from: tacoschip on May 04, 2023, 09:35:58 AMSadly I think no. Having 2 fighters on-screen will force removal of blinking box cursors.EDIT: Reset. Splitting upper - lower sprite chr banks could work (25% possible). I want to work on other projects for awhile; that will take a lot of thinking.
Quote from: tacoschip on May 05, 2023, 10:48:04 AMHard to say yes because I'm 25% sure it can be done - more big unknowns than fighters on select screen; greatly depends on the mockup. :rofl:
