Porters Needed for The Quest III
Posted on 25 August 1998, 22:38 GMT

[The Quest III - Chapter 1 Screenshot]
Mikel Blanchard of Macross Software has released The Quest III - Chapter 1; "Contact" v1.1 for Usgard. For those who missed the first release, this is an RPG game geared to be a mix between Diablo and Final Fantasy VII. CLEM was porting the game to the TI-86, but was forced to stop when his link cable broke (again). Mikel is looking for people to port his game to the TI-82 and TI-83, as well as continue the TI-86 version.

For god sake! Somebody needs to make a Long Lasting Durable Super Cable for CLEM!!! I'm really looking forward to this game being ported to an 86.

I think everyone is looking forward to this. But why don't you give him one yourself? I mean, don't ask if it's not offered.

Maybe I can't fork out another 35 bucks just to get a link cable for 'em because I don't have the money (no job)

Sorry, I didn't mean for it to sound like a flame, I was just saying that it sounded a bit rude.. ahh nevermind.

This guy is a nut. I mean, whenever someone has a little suggestion, this guy's all over him...
I don't mean disin' but, if you ain't rich, (like people who suggests this kinda thing), just wait and see if any rich dudes can send Clem a link.
As for you, you better have a little respect for people's comments and suggestions. And if you talk back to me, that means you don't have any respect whatsoever.

P.S. can someone rich out there, send Clem a tough link, so we can all enjoy the game before the school starts?

What does this guy do with his cable(s)? Jump rope, tow cars? Or is the Graph-Link just cruddy? (I don't have one, wouldn't know)

I haven't had _any_ problems with my link (an official, TI, "Link-Only" package). Actually, I'm kinda surprised it hasn't died yet. It been dropped, tied, wadded, squashed, smashed (the casing is badly cracked...), dissasembled and even bungeed (I dropped my calc while it was plugged in ;). My 86 has taken an unreasonable amount of abuse, too.

Tell me about it, my 86 has taken a lot of abuse too. I dropped it quite a few times but it still is holding together. Just a scratch or two on the display which isn't that bad. My link has taken a bit of abuse itself too :o)

I've been very careful with my 86, but there's an unexplained scar on the F2 key. Otherwise, it's probably the most pampered calc out there.

I got it because my 82 died. For no reason whatsoever. Except maybe that I dropped it in the driveway and it was subsequently run over by a Jeep. But it lasted for 2 yrs after that.

Durable little sonofagun.

The port for the 86 is almost complete. I am looking for someone to continue Clems work on it. If I find no one to complete the work, he should be able to resume his work in a month or so. I hope :)

A MONTH??? I can't wait that long!! School starts next Monday for me and I need something new to do during Geometry class! (No wise cracks about actually doing work and paying attention since that would be "new")

That happend to mine a while back and they fixed it for free (it took 14 days). Just call 1-800-TI-CARES and they will tell you everything you need to know. Their hours run on Texas time, so you have to call when they are open :P

Same thing happened to me except the metal piece got stuck in my ti82, and took quite a bit of work to bet out

I prefer the homemade link, I have never seen a real ti link, but I guess it must be worse than mine. I don't imagine mine ever falling apart.

Actually, the TI ones are quite nice. If you sat on the end of yours with a chair it would brake too. Oh well :) They replaced it for free, you would have to make a new one :P

Speaking of Clem, I wonder what happened to his Maze-3D? Can somebody please tell me? I'd appreciate it.
And..I think Clem's hp got shut down.
