nQuakeLast November, a certain Ralf Willenbacher came out of the blue and wowed everyone with what ultimately became the ticalc.org TI-89 POTY. Delsgolf was an impressive feat that grabbed the attention of the community far and wide. Presumably causing the Great AAA Battery Shortage of 2013 that our children's children will still be talking about, Ralf went back to the drawing board to create yet another smashing project.

I'll be blunt: if you have a TI-Nspire, you should also have nQuake. Of course, we've already seen the standard hardware litmus test question answered, but Ralf has clearly decided to take it one step further with nQuake. While you shouldn't need anything else to offer a giant "great job!" congratulation to the author, he has also released the source code and a lot of additional details for compiling should you get the build bug yourself. Awesome work, Ralf, and keep it up!

Cemetech Contest #12 / Doors CSE 8.1
Posted by Ryan on 17 July 2014, 03:02 GMT

As you might expect, our incredible calcs are an integral part (get it? integral? eh?) of STEM fields and, more broadly, learning and education. Given this, we're thrilled to see Cemetech's most recent contest that deals with "educational shenanigans". There's still no word if skullduggery, hijinks, or tomfoolery qualify. There's still over 10 days 5 weeks left for the contest, so there's still plenty of time to create new ways to drop knowledge on students! More details can be found within the official announcement. This is a great opportunity to polish up on your own skills and to help others learn as well!

In related news, we've recently seen the official release of Doors CSE 8.1 after some thorough release candidate tests in the past month. Naturally, this calls for an 84+ CSE celebration dance in honor of calc superhero Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell!

KnightOS Kernel 0.6.1 Released
Posted by Ryan on 18 May 2014, 21:38 GMT

A couple of weeks ago, Drew "SirCmpwn" DeVault released a very impressive, long-dreamt-of package. That release? Why, it was KnightOS, of course! It doesn't take a lot of digging to be able to tell that KnightOS is serious business and marks a major milestone in the places that calcs can go. As such, we caught up with Drew to find out some more about the project in addition to getting to know him better. Click through to the discussion for the full interview!

Reuben Quest: Ev Awakening - Axe Remake
Posted by Ryan on 16 May 2014, 04:25 GMT

RQ:EAAround 10 years ago or so, the world of BASIC games was rocked by Kevin "DJ Omnimaga" Ouellet's outstanding Reuben Quest: Ev Awakening. The stunning adventure-RPG graced many-a-calcs, and rightfully so.

Back then, the big "What if?" question that often appeared revolved around porting BASIC games to ASM. As you may well know, there are many tools that have helped to bridge this gap, with the infamous Axe Parser being noteworthy, to say the least. Many years later, Sorunome has breathed some new life into this classic by doing a full remake of RQ:EA via the Axe Parser! Are you excited yet? You should be! A quick glance at the animated screens and a video of the game in action should be more than proof enough of the fine work done here. Of course, the game looks as gorgeous as it ever did, which is a high praise in and of itself. Beyond that, the recreated experience is as smooth and enjoyable as one could hope for -- a true high-fidelity romp through forests, caverns, and castles. All of this was created with a relatively short turn-around (not including the project's ~9 month hiatus), especially considering the great progress made since the public beta that hit the web just a few weeks ago. Now that's some dedication to the classics!

A big tip of the hat to Sorunome for the outstanding work! This is Sorunome's second feature in less than a year's time, and we can't wait to see what's next. Really, there's not much more to say than "Go play this now!"
