26194: 'O' pressed - left
The address of this routine is found in the table of keypress handling routines at 26624. It is called from the main loop at 26471 when 'O' or '5' is pressed, and is also used by the routines at 25983 and 26084.
Input
B ERIC's animatory state
DE ERIC's coordinates
26194 CALL 25956 Is ERIC sitting or lying down?
26197 RET NZ Return if so
26198 CALL 26184 Check whether ERIC is on a staircase
26201 LD A,E A=ERIC's x-coordinate
26202 JR Z,26212 Jump if ERIC's not on a staircase
26204 CP 48 Is ERIC on a staircase at the right of the skool?
26206 JP NC,25983 Move ERIC down a step if so
26209 JP 26084 Otherwise move ERIC up a step
26212 BIT 7,B Is ERIC facing right?
26214 JP NZ,25962 Turn ERIC round if so
ERIC is facing left, and is not on a staircase.
26217 AND A Is ERIC standing at the far left side of the skool?
26218 RET Z Return if so
26219 LD A,D A=ERIC's y-coordinate
26220 CP 169 Is ERIC on the bottom floor?
26222 JR Z,26234 Jump if so
26224 CP 155 Set the zero flag if ERIC is on the top floor
26226 LD A,58 This is the x-coordinate of the wall between the Map and Reading Rooms
26228 JR Z,26232 Jump if ERIC's on the top floor
26230 LD A,39 This is the x-coordinate of the wall between the Exam and White Rooms
26232 CP E Is ERIC facing this wall (from the right side)?
26233 RET Z Return if so (ERIC cannot walk through walls)
There is no wall obstructing ERIC, so it's time to put him midstride.
26234 LD A,1 A=1 (ERIC midstride, facing left)
26236 LD L,E L=ERIC's current x-coordinate
26237 DEC E E=ERIC's post-midstride x-coordinate
This entry point is used by the routine at 26282 with A=129 (ERIC facing right, midstride).
26238 LD C,A C=1/129 (ERIC midstride)
26239 LD A,(32764) 32764 holds the ASCII code of the last keypress
26242 BIT 5,A Was the last keypress upper case (fast)?
26244 JR Z,26250 Jump if so
26246 LD A,C Clearly these instructions have no effect, but one wonders what they might once have been and done
26249 LD C,A
26250 LD A,(32763) Collect ERIC's status flags from 32763
26253 BIT 6,A Bit 6 is always reset, so this jump is always made
26255 JR Z,26261
26257 LD A,C Clearly these instructions have no effect, but one wonders what they might once have been and done
