Shiar Releases Nemesis, Tim Buckingham Releases BlitZ Kernel
Posted by Nick on 15 October 1999, 00:26 GMT

More program stuff worth mentioning:

Shiar has released an update to his great game for the 86 called Nemesis v0.94 Beta. It's a side-scrolling space shooter game, not unlike XC-1701 for the TI-85. It features powerups and rather fast gameplay, and I'm already addicted ;)

Also, Tim Buckingham has released a port of his successful Blitz 2 application for the 86 to the 89 called (surprise surprise) the BlitZ K* Operating System. This set of kernels, written in TI-BASIC, has many customizable features and many interesting perks such as powering down the calculator. Anyone interested in TI-BASIC should check this out.

BlitZ is awsome. Great Job Fuzed! I personally have been waiting a long time for this, :P
I'll look forward to the new scriptable BlitZ shell when it comes out

PS-Write it for the 86!(i know you don't have one)
PSS-Hey first comment

Does anyone know how to protect basic source code and text from other's eyes under a password? My old CASIO 9850-C had this feature which I need now.

There is no way to prevent a user from seeing TI-BASIC source "code".

You really can't password protect a code, and I'm unaware of any method of encryption. However, some calcs, such as the 82 and 83, do not have the ability to lock and unlock BASIC programs, so if you send a locked file (locked from the computer's graph link program) to any of these calculators, other users will be able to send the program to each other without the ability to see the code, unless they happen to upload it back to their computer. This will only work on a select few calculators and only on those who don't know how to unlock files.

Unless you have a program that lets you change that attribute -- ASM (See Attrib)

I have had a bad day. I have got a Virus on my comp called HAPPY99 DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT IT IS AND HOW TO REMOVE IT??????????

Yes, this is very off-topic, but I can understand why you'd trust the TI community to understand viruses. In any case, you can find detailed instructions (without requiring special software) on how to remove the ska virus/Happy99 worm at http://www.esafe.nl/html/ska.html
You should be more careful not to open random emails. You know that fireworks thing you got in your mail? That's it... and you sent it to other people as well. Don't you feel smart?

wow - i don't understand why anyone would run a file that was just given to them over the internet. (excluding the possibility that it was from a friend or relative...)

My friend recently sent some kid a file through one of these on-line chat rooms. He told the kid that it would run some porn movie or something (I know this may be offensive, but it did the trick) - the executable file was actually a virus that allows my friend to mess with the kid's computer when he's online. poor kid. oh well... :)

I sent my friend a copy of netbus and told him it was a chat prog. When he got it I opened Notepad and started typing. He thought it was, too, 'till I disabled all of the vowels on the keyboard.

I had the same problem with Nemesis. I beat the first level, and it displayed my score or something, and then gave me an undefined error and froze.

Please note that the software is beta, and hence may not work entirely properly.

Yep I got the error too. Fix it soon or its score will go from 6 to 0. Good improvements though.

hey man, he's not charging for this is he? so why are you making demands of him. all that's necessary is to point out a bug, and let the programmer fix it.

I agree completely, everyone keeps demanding programmers to fix bugs, port games to other calculators, and add options to games. What they don't seem to understand is that these programmers are doing this for free. Everyone should use more courtesy towards the programmers. They don't have to program anything, and they certainly don't have to distribute their programs for free. Everyone should be careful to ASK programmers politely to make changes. NOT demand it.

I am a programmer and I know that if I released a buggy program I would want people to jump on me so I could fix it. If you want some things done you have to bitch. If a programmer is going to release a game and get as much publicity as this has it had better be bug free. You all need to strive to be better. Stop whining about the poor programmer, this comes with the territory...
