Benoit Scherrer and Brian Tribondeau Release SolarStriker v0.11 Alpha
Posted by Nick on 16 October 1999, 18:47 GMT

Benoit Scherrer and Brian Tribondeau have released an alpha version of a vertical scrolling space shooter called SolarStriker. It is available for download from our archives for the 89, 92 and 92 Plus. Its graphics are astounding and the gameplay is excellent. It's an alpha release right now, but so far, Benoit and Brian have done a great job.

I tried the Ti-89 version of this and I couldnt see the ship or shoot. Just wonderin if its a bug or if I have to have the ROM patch or somethin.

Yes, i know this problem...
Just ONE solution, reset your calculator, install doorsos (but it seems than plusshell is more stable). And after install solar and solib. So you can play ! And if you don't see the ship when you start the game, just quit, reset and retry. I tested it with rom 1.05 and doorsos beta2, it can run so it's not a problem with the rom

Why does the ss for the 92+ on your page(Benoit & Brian's) look better than the 89? What I mean is the clouds and ground look better on the 92+ ss, thanks for your help.

Yes ! but it could be true if I had use this picture for the scrolling. That's not very important, because the next scrolling will be differential (i don't know if it is the same expression in english...).

Maybe Nick came to his senses and stopped putting 65k byte screenshots on the front page of ticalc.org :) That or he was just too lazy to make his own screenshot.. one of those :)

Actually, to be more accurate, the frame refreshed so often that a ten second screenshot would be over 120KB.
That's a Bad Thing(TM).

You know, there should be a seperate icon for file information with both animated screenshots and screenshots. The reason for this is games like Sqrxz, Mario, and others already have a screenshot and so, I think the screenshot makers don't think they should make any more or something. I wouldn't mind waiting for screenshots. Good work. Make multible screenshots, It would be nice.

And the first person to say something, i could have been first(i hit reload, reload for long time and i say the page change, it had no comments for awhile.
y arent there any new 86 games? Does anyone know Asm good? were is a good place to learn? i know BASIC alot of C++ Javascript HTML and more and i really need to learn ASM so i can make one program that runs On86 and Ashell auto come up and so i can have BGPic built in to, and i wanna try to make it where u can add a comment to each game in the shell so u remember what it is, and i want to make View Text program have a way to type it all in easier. and more. i am good programer, someone email me the best site(the address) to learn Asm. And can someone email me how to get this stupid RomDump to work! when i run it on comp it just says its finished and doesnt work, iu cant get bmp2asm to work either, same prob--do i have to run em a specail way--if so how? email and post it plz.

To learn asm for the 86, go to 86 Central (ti86.acz.org). ACZ has a message board where you can ask specific questions about asm. As for bmp2asm, try Matt Johnson's Image Studio. It does conversions and will make adjustments to make the picture look better, along with using RLE compression to save space

I had the same problem with rom dumping but if you use the newest version of VTI the rom dumper works great with my $4 serial link

I don't know if it was mentioned, but Solar Striker was one of the first shooters for the Gameboy, so if you're really desperate to get a preview, take a trip to Best Buy :). The screenshot looks great, by the way.
