Hi!

I thought we could prepare some discussion about collision detection for a wiki article. How to implement it, when to use it, different kinds, examples from old games, difference between classic and vampire, etc.

So, anyone know how it was implemented in old games like Giana Sisters?

One resource suggested by Gunnar, the Amiga hardware reference manual (PDF): EXTERNAL LINK

Thanks for the link! Article is about "The guide to implementing 2D platformers", which contains detailed explanation but no code examples (probably not needed for any seasoned developer). What would be absolutely awesome is to implement examples in Amiga for these different kinds of systems. Also which kind of hardware support is possible.

The article deals with collision detection between sprite and background, but not between sprites.

The good link on my site is Part 1 of my article on sprites and BOBs, and not Part 2:

The article contains code to download (spritesCollision.s). Hope this helps. Have fun.
