The Quest III Chapter 1 Released
Posted on 15 August 1998, 05:32 GMT

[The Quest III Chapter 1 Screenshot]
Mikel Blanchard of Macross Software has released The Quest III Chapter 1 for Usgard. This game is geared to be a mix between Diablo and Final Fantasy VII, and is only the first in a series of chapters to be released. This game also takes up all the memory on the TI-85, but for RPG fans, it is probably worth it. One feature is the lack of repetitiveness, present in other similar games. One thing to note: If your TI-85 is not ROM 10.0, you will need to send patchrom.85s to your calculator to patch Usgard for your ROM version.

I had planned to port it at some point, but the 82/83 ports will be the most challenging. I do not have a 82 or a 83, so the porting will have to be done by someone else. If you, or someone you know, wants to port this to a 82 or a 83 please let me know ASAP. Thanks

You have to get into the Mansion. I am not going to tell you how (that would take the fun out of it). You have everything you need to get in, you just have to solve the puzzle...good luck :)

I've been everywhere too, I just can't figure out that damn puzzle, I've spent days. I know it's going to take some fun out of it, but anybody have any hints for me?

No, it crashed under ASE and Rascall said it was too big.

Man, this game looks really kool, but I have an 86 also, so it sux that it cant be used. I was excited about the idea of non repetativness, and Im a huge RPG fan, so wish I could have played it. I hope it gets ported soon...

86 - 85 Emulation

Unfortunately, due to the way shells emulate the 85 now, programs can only be 16k. (i think, maybe 9k?) I don't think it's hard to port from the 85 to the 86 though.

I think it is 12k, but I am not sure. This is becuase the RAM used for ASM programs on the 86 is onlt 12k. So something that is 27k can not be copied there :( If someone wants to port it to the 86, let me know. I can help, but don't have time to do it right now.

Well, this game is something else, I wonder how people ever got the vision to make games like this. I have an 85 and an 86, and I encountered the same problems as the others when I tried to run it on the 86... oh well, I sure hope someone ports it soon.
