Imagine the possibilities if we could get farb rausch or some similar group to work on the ti-83+.. that'd be insanely awesome :twisted:

The game has a nice story, good gameplay and impressive graphics. But I didn't like the interface!
Here are some suggestions how it might be implemented in Desolate 2:

1. Entering door codes is very complicated in Desolate 1. You have to press left and right to move a virtual finger over a virtual keypad. Didn't you notice, that there's a REAL number pad on your TI83? :wink:
Serious, it would be a lot more comfortable if you could enter the codes on a real key pad.

2. In Desolate 1 you have 4 functions: search, close pop-ups, shoot and open inventory. But they don't have one button each. Instead XTOn changes the function of 2nd. Why not using 2nd for search and XTOn for shoot?
If you want to keep the nice feature that pressing a direction moves the character in search mode, while it only turns it in shoot mode: You could change it so that as long as enemies are alive in the current room the character turns and when the room is save, pressing a direction directly moves the character.

3.
My suggestion concerning the inventory might be a little strange: If you arranged the inventory items in a matrix of 5*6 you could access them by pressing a button in the key reagion of MATH to CLEAR to + to STO->.
Example:
Your inventory looks like this:
Code:
[Cardreader][1][2]   [3][4]
[5]         [6][Drill]

Pressing MATH uses the Cardreader.
Pressing COS uses the Drill.
Pressing X^-1 uses Datacadridge 5....

4.
It took some contrast adjustments until Desolate looked good on my calc. Could you implement ingame contrast change? Like + for brighter and - for darker?[/code]

Hey,

welcome to the board. I am responding to your suggestions, but might be wrong. here we go

your suggestions for the keys were not possible in the engine of tr1p, because checking more buttons would be a) taking up more space and b) be slower. I guess Desolate 2 will use a new written engine, since tr1p made a lot of exp. in this project.

contrast adjustment is not really neccesary imho. What would be cool is an in-game change of the interupt frequency.

Thank you for the welcome!

(Before you read this: Keep in mind that I have nearly no clue about asm coding. What I say about it might be completely wrong):
I understand the problem that it takes up more space to check more buttons, but I am not sure about the speed. I think that a slow responding real number pad is faster to use than a fast responding virtual number pad. And those extra keys can not be checked when they are not needed.w

I agree, i totally freaked out because i had to enter the codes 'manually' all the time. Because the game reacted a bit slow, i always pushed a button twice, or filled in the wrong number... I wouldn't mind if it'd be slow, i just want to use the numpad...

OMG I know! That irritated me greatly. I always had to enter the codes at least twice before I got the right one. >_<

Suggestions noted :).

Although i never really had a problem with the door codes, lots of people did. I dont think there will even be door codes in the sequel ... o_o.

Although a sequel is in fact planned, it wont happen for a long time. I guess this can be a brainstorming thread :).

My coding has been kind of slow recently, and now that my machine is kind of out of action ... its ever worse. Ill get back to coding asap, i have another project im working on that i have decided to start over with (well for the most part).

And welcome to the boards RedNifre :).

Since this is a brain storm thread:
-dark areas where you can only see with a flash light that lights only part of the screen
-Intelligent but slower enemies that can follow you into other screens
-more guns with consumable clips and a melee weapon (maybe with weapon upgrades like RE4 had...that would be cool)
-block puzles
-make the text appear all at once
-specific save points

Well i originally had plans for block puzzles and other puzzlkes where you needed to shoot things in certain combinations to get past ... as well as covering up holes in the floor etc.

I also wanted to implement a feature which allowed to go skip the text scrolling letter by letter ... but i never got around to it.

Hopefully if the sequel eventuates, such things can be included :).

Hmm...I know you have been busy with xlib, but I do hope we see a desolate 2 in the future. Some more suggestions
-have scrolling maps
-have npcs
-have terain like rocks and dirt and such
-make it a flash app
-give it a level editor
