POTY contest 2016 begins: TI-84+CSE voting opens
Posted by Travis on 5 December 2016, 23:34 GMT

With December having begun and our technical issues (hopefully) sorted for now, it's time for our annual Program of the Year contest, where you the visitors vote on your favorite featured programs of the year. This year the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus CE, and Nspire are the active voting categories. (This is the Only Level was the only featured TI-83/84 Plus program.)

We'll start with the TI-84+CSE. The poll is on the right side of the main page of the site and will be open until approximately Monday, December 12. The candidates are:

Two other simple TI-eZ80 games
Posted by Xavier on 31 October 2016, 22:13 GMT

Catylizm CE Our feature series continues with two games for the TI-eZ80 series, written in C by Spencer "Spenceboy98" Beaumont, who has been part of the community for several years: Catylizm CE and Zombie Chase CE. Both games use the community SDK and on-calc libraries by Matt "MateoConLechuga" Waltz and contributors; Spencer ported these games from other calculator platforms, e.g. the TI-Nspire. Catylizm CE leverages compressed data to reduce the size of the program.

The first game, with fancy yet fast graphics, is featuring Carl the cat, who was sent in space and has to collect coins and mice to raise scores, as well as fuel for the jetpack to propel up, while avoiding hurtful collisions with asteroids.

Catylizm CE On the contrary, the second game has minimalist graphics. Unfortunately for you, you're trapped in a place you can't exit from, and have to escape green dots (the zombies, if you will) eager to bite you. Of course, the zombies are slower than you, but their number is increasing over time. Try to rise up to the challenge of staying human as long as possible ;-)

Keep going on with new games, and maybe improvements to existing ones (like configurable difficulty?), Spencer!


With ChessCE, will you beat your CE at chess?
Posted by Xavier on 9 October 2016, 19:36 GMT


Just a few days ago, Matt "MateoConLechuga" Waltz, very active community member, especially on the TI-eZ80 series, recently uploaded a beautiful chess game for your TI-84 Plus CE / 83 Premium CE, aptly named ChessCE.

Now, chess games on TI calculators aren't as common as your typical quadratic solvers, but they certainly are popular - the most famous of all probably being the TI-68k/AMS TI-Chess, by Thomas Nussbaumer and Marcos Lopez, with more than a quarter million downloads so far! Will ChessCE be that successful?
Well, like TI-Chess, in addition to being able to play with two people on the calculator, you can play against ChessCE's built-in AI, which makes it quite an interesting game duringbetween class or whenever else. In fact, you can even let it play against itself and just watch.
Oh, and of course, games can be saved and loaded back :)

As usual with Mateo's programs, the C source code is available so that everyone can learn from it!
Enjoy, and may the best player win!

A special pong and a splash screen maker for your color 84 calculators
Posted by Xavier on 9 September 2016, 14:01 GMT

Pong, with sound!

Recently, Amelia "amihart" Hartman uploaded not one, but two, interesting programs: a pong game for the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, and a splash screen maker/displayer for the TI-84 Plus CE.

Now, PongWS is your "standard" pong game, featuring both single-player (against the calculator) and two-player (different sets of keys on the same calculator) modes. But there's a twist: the "WS" in its name stands for "with sound" - yes, Amelia is now among the few who created a calculator game with sound output as you play.
Just plug some appropriate headphones, usually through an adapter, into the I/O port of the 84+CSE, and you're all set :)

SpashCE in all its glory

Next, SplashCE: as mentioned above, it's a launch/splash screen displaying program for the CE, with an open-source converter tool on the computer. Each generated appvar contains a 320x240 image, displayed on screen using the full 65536-color palette, so that users of your programs can be amazed as soon as the reader starts ;) Some free RAM is required at launch time, but the images themselves can be stored in archive, which is a relief for some of you that were probably starting to wonder about that.

So, if you have an 84+CSE, plug in your headphones and enjoy a good old pong battle, and if you're the proud owner of an 84+CE/83PCE and happen to create games, be sure to take a look at SplashCE!
