Re: Darkblasters: A new graphical 84+/SE RPG written in TI-BASIC

That looks great! Very nice work and it's always impressive to see the creative ways you're able to make the most of the calculator's capabilities. :)

Source code release and "Demo 8".

I've dug around the dustier corners of my hard disk drive and uploaded the source code for this project to https://github.com/benryves/Nostromo After transferring to GitHub I cloned the project locally and tried building it; I was able to compile "Demo 8" which is a minor bugfix from the g...

Re: COVID-19 - Check-in

Long time no see, currahee, hope you've been well! My girlfriend's an optometrist and so also had her first jab last week (Pfizer) but only had a sore arm for a day or so afterwards. It's the people I know who've had the AstraZeneca one that seem to be more prone to feeling unwell afterwards, but fo...

Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

That's looking great, tr1p1ea, can't wait to see how it turns out! :) Would it be revealing your secrets too much to describe the algorithm you're using? I'm interested in how the resolution drops as you get further down the screen - is that a limitation of the algorithm or a concession to performan...

Re: The void of space ...

Nice to see that you've compiled what you had into an interesting repository, Timendus. :) Thank you for sharing that! I do like BBC BASIC (generally, not so much my calculator version) but in retrospect it was a poor fit for the TI calculator. It feels too much like a "computer" BASIC and...

Re: The void of space ...

Love the screenshot, DJ_O! :lol: Good to hear you're still around Timendus! :) Unfortunately I can't help with Vera and the only files I can find on my hard disk are a few test XML files output by veradoc and a screenshot of the SVN repository, sorry. I'm glad tr1p1ea was able to recover something m...

Re: Hi all

Ben, I'm unconvinced by your excuse as calculators are cheap on ebay! :-) (Still amazed that the ancient ti-83, which costs almost nothing to produce still goes for $100+... Talk about a cash cow for TI!) Oh, all right then, you convinced me. :) I hope you got your commission from the seller! 20200...

Re: Hi all

Glad to hear you're doing well and keeping yourself busy with interesting projects, Duck! My day job is still PHP web development, it keeps me busy but isn't particularly aligned with my interests in the more tangible or interactive side of computing. I still tinker with electronics and older comput...

Re: DStar for the TI-84+CE

Looks good, tr1p1ea! Are the tiles/character designs based on another version or are they original for this version?

Re: Other places to discuss TI calcs

Ah I see. Strange. But again, CodeWalrus also has a plugin that prevents anyone with zero post from posting external links. [...] If you had such plugin in addition to Stop Forum Spam, maybe it could help? We manually approve all registrations, and those are still clearly from spammers. The problem...

Re: Other places to discuss TI calcs

Yeah I remember that registrations were disabled due to spambots and lack of a proper anti-spam. I integrated Stop Forum Spam into the board registration system myself, but a few spammers still slip through and it was at the point where we had received no genuine registrations for months but lots o...

That does seem impressively speedy, considering the hardware it's running on! Great work :)

Re: Over Seven Years Ago

Good to hear from you Toaster, and glad to hear you've turned a hobby and interest into a successful career. What sort of development work are you doing? Are you still in contact with Calvin?

That looks really neat, tr1p1ea - did you get the opportunity to try it on hardware to see how well it performs?

Re: Brass - 1.0.5.2 update [Tuesday 24/09/2013]

It's been a while since I posted here, but there have been some updates to Brass: 1.0.5.2 - .branch directive no longer aligns to 3-byte boundaries. 1.0.5.1 - defined() function allows you to check whether macros are defined without needing to nest/duplicate .ifdef directives. 1.0.5.0 - .appheaderpa...
