31768: Move a character looking for ERIC to the midstride position
Continues from 31648. Moves the character looking for ERIC to the midstride position in the appropriate direction.
Input
A 1 if the character's going upstairs, 2 if going down
BC 0
DE 0
H Number of the character looking for ERIC (161, 163-166)
L 96
The main entry point is used when the character is on a staircase.
31768 INC B B=1
31769 DEC A Is the chaser going downstairs?
31770 JR NZ,31774 Jump if so
31772 DEC B B=0
31773 DEC D D=-1
31774 INC C C=1
31775 BIT 7,(HL) Is the chaser facing right?
31777 JR NZ,31781 Jump if so
31779 DEC C C=-1
31780 DEC C
This entry point is used by the routine at 31648 when the character looking for ERIC is not on a staircase; in this case B=D=E=0, and C=-1 if the chaser is to ERIC's left, or 1 if he is to ERIC's right.
31781 LD L,107 C=-1 if the chaser is to ERIC's left, or 1 if to his right; B=1 if the chaser is going downstairs, 0 otherwise; place these values into bytes 107 and 108 of the chaser's buffer
31783 LD (HL),C
31784 INC L
31785 LD (HL),B
31786 LD L,105 Change the interruptible subcommand routine address in bytes 105 and 106 of the chaser's buffer from 31648 to 31739
31788 LD (HL),251
31790 PUSH DE Save the x- and y-coordinate increments for the chaser's next move
31791 CALL 25108 Update the SRB for the chaser's current location
31794 INC A A=chaser's next animatory state (midstride)
31795 LD L,A Store this in L briefly
31796 POP BC Get the appropriate y- and x-coordinate increments for the chaser's move to the midstride position in BC
31797 LD A,B Get the chaser's new y-coordinate in D (which is the same as his current y-coordinate unless he's going up a staircase)
