My program won't work with my FlashBoy+. To make sure my FlashBoy+ worked okay, I put another game on it and it works. But this one doesn't. And there's this super long pause before it even starts in Mednafen. What am I doing wrong? I attached the entire project. Why why why?!

I figured it out. An error in the .vbh file. The game title was 21 characters long instead of 20.

Here is the title screen. I think I resolved the issues I had with the flickering on a real Virtual Boy.

I'm back and working on this again. Right now this is just a title screen, but I plan to make a full-fledged game out of this.

Tomorrow I'll work on jumping. And then it's on past the title screen.

I guess I should have checked to see if it worked first. This works great on a real VB. I used a FlashBoy to test it. You can now press A to jump.

Is that some original music you composed in the background? Sounds pretty nice!

There is a huge discrepancy between the title screen and in-game. The in-game seems a lot slower than the title screen. But it was a huge ordeal to just not make it flicker like crazy on a real VB. I do not remember it being this hard to program for. I'm using the Soviet sound engine and the tempo of the title screen music is 20. Well, for the in-game music to sound the same, I had to set it to 10. That's how big of a difference there is. And if I try to program it any other way than what I have now, it flickers like crazy on a real VB so I have to do it this way. To start the game, press Start.

Well, apparently the discrepancy fixed itself. I don't know how. This is my final build for today. It's almost 10 p.m. and I'm sick of this. I'll be back at work on it tomorrow. Download this and play it and let me know if you see any weirdness, especially related to jumping. I spent 5 minutes with it on VB and I think I may have fixed the floating and rising in air problems I had earlier. But if not let me know.
