Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

I haven't done too much load testing - however this demo has lots happening on the screen with all the items so I should be able to get things to a point where frame rates are good in most scenarios.

Re: COVID-19 - Check-in

Any progress? Hope everyone is going ok.

In Australia we are mostly over it with a few cases emerging from returning international travelers ... but as we know it doesn't take long for it to get out of control.

Re: COVID-19 - Check-in

Dang that sucks - hopefully in the last month things have gotten better DJ? Also that's a low act by grocery stores, raising prices in a crisis. Some governments instituted price freezes for staple items, which was a good move. Here in Aus things are getting better, my state hasn't had a new case fo...

COVID-19 - Check-in

I hope everyone is going OK regarding COVID-19? Particularly those who reside in countries that are affected more than others.

Let me know if you need anything.

Re: First Fantasy: Mana Force

If xLIB was released for the CE then it would work *hides*.

TI killed any hope of that however.

Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

Yes he did indeed - I wonder if he will ever release it? I did a bit on the B&W calcs also: https://tr1p1ea.net/files/downloads/screenshots/m7bw_0.gif Very old and inaccurate but I still have the code somewhere. Also latest screenshot with all the items :): https://tr1p1ea.net/files/downloads/sc...

The End has finally come - TI removes ASM support

It is a sad day for the community as officially TI has removed support for ASM in its TI-83/4 CE line of calculators. In other words - DO NOT UPGRADE TO 5.5! It has been a fantastic couple of decades however with TI now looking to shut down our communities some will move to greener pastures and othe...

Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

The answer is technically yes, but my engine doesn't support it because it would be slow things down too much. Though you can do tricks with my engine to achieve a similar outcome since coordinates wrap around (if you drive off one side of the map you appear on the other side, so you can be tricky w...

Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

There are issues like wait-states that affect the CE's performance - CPU is 48MHz but it is somewhat comparable to a 15MHz SE because of this when factoring in screen resolution - but with a better instruction set.

Also thanks for the heads up, I attempted to fix the guest issue.

Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

That looks really cool Ben! Granted this is for the CE, which although hampered in it's own way, is much than the monochrome calcs (well comparble to an SE but with a better instruction set). I have been making mode7 style demos for years, originally based on this webpage: https://www.helixsoft.nl/a...

Re: The void of space ...

Great that there is something of Vera that can still be looked at. I guess there are also the docs so one could rewrite the documented routines based on what they are described as doing ... if someone could find that kind of time. I still dabble in z80 - most recently for the newer colour calcs. Cur...

Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

OK So a fair bit of work has gone into this project of late! I ended up reorganising the engine to make it possible for more rapid development - I'll keep it to myself exactly what I did since it would be met with looks of disapproval from some I'm sure! :D. Anyway some screenshots from development ...

Re: The void of space ...

Hi Timendus! Great to hear from you. I sadly lost a lot of calc stuff in a HDD crash a few years back :(. Hopefully you can find vera somewhere. I remember making the 4lvl grayscale logo for it back in the day :). EDIT - I had a very early backup of Vera: https://tr1p1ea.net/files/downloads/Vera.0.0...
