And the Winners are...
Posted by Morgan on 31 December 2003, 23:57 GMT

The results to the first annual Program of the Year (POTY) contest are in! Congratulations to the four winning programs and their authors! As before with the POTM winning programs, the programs have been given specialized screen shots and the authors do have ticalc.org's consent to display special graphics on their home page if they do so wish.

We look forward to next year's competition. Hopefully your program will be competing. POTY's are based on the featured program list and if you believe that we missed a program e-mail us at either filearchive@ticalc.org or news@ticalc.org. We will always take a look at your suggestions.

And of course...Happy New Year to all!

There is also an featprog@ticalc.org address to report files that may be worthy but I am not aware of who answers that address so it would be best to use the addresses I listed.

Also...I openly accept all criticism about my abilities to make screenshots of Gran Tourismo with VTI :-)

They look fine to me! What is there to criticize?

The only thing that I noticed was that the dithering and colors seemed a hair off, but otherwise it was good.

I must say that I agree with the POTY choices the community made. Now if POTM would only return...

A little bit of practice would make you a better driver, but then we wouldn't be able to tell which one is you. Good job

I'm actually not that bad on with a real calc, but it's a little harder with VTI for some reason. Oh well, if there's no criticism I'm happy :-)

Hey, I have nothing to criticize. I know how hard it is to control games on VTI... especially when you want it to be perfect for a screenshot. Plus, GT is hard enough as it is.

Are those the e-mail addresses to use to nominate programs for the next POTY award?

I've started on a fresh interface/emulation redo with the time I have after that horrible delayed disaster I mentioned. I've picked the new 3.0 z80 core and 83+SE to start with and get hardware emulation current before working on templating and expanding.

This looks to also turn into cross-platform finally after the new code is ironed out. Trust me this is needed for both code cleaning and adding stuff easily. That code hasnt' been gone through ALL the way in a long time, even with the 3.0 reduction and restructure.

I have nowhere else to announce this so...

You're talking about VTI, right? In that case, Yay!, another update!

More like a redo based around the old core code.

Working on re-fitting the core now, it compiles at least!

Hey, do you have a website anywhere that is devoted to this project? I would like to follow it as closely as I can!

Not yet, just a cvs site which is for my use :) Will have one soon though after I finish ironing out some things.

The concept of a skinned calculator will be interesting to achieve in linux.

Will the development be done in Linux?

I'm getting the redo working in the original format again(borland/windows) with z80/SE and then it'll be split up into wxWindows and linux development will begin.

Check out the URL above -- it's an attempt to make a cross-platform port of 2.5B5 with GTK.

BTW: VTI runs fairly well under wine, even with skins.

Intersting, checked it out. GTK+ is one choice but I'm going with wxWindows and a redo as well. You could always use wine anyway until then.

That's about 1 or 5 or so linux conversions projects I've known about, but this one has no results yet either.

Yes, congratulations to all the winners, and also to all the people who had their programs nominated for the voting for POTY 2003! Too bad the TI-82 wasn't involved ;-)
The TI-89 voting was VERY close between Gran Tourismo and Ice Hockey. 27 and 24. I thought they would be close.

Yeah, I cannot believe GT won. I was realy rooting for ID. Oh well, I guess I sould not be too torn, seeing as it is not my program. It is just such an awesome program.

I voted for GT... it has been on my calculator since the day it came out, and it's probably my second-favorite game of all-time. (Love that Phoenix!) :-)

Any. LOL Though, you could assume the 68k platform, since it's being compared to GT, which is for the 68k.

I asked because I -- personally -- think that the z80 version is superior.

I have never seen the 68k version. Why do you think that the z80 version is better?

I think that the 68k version is way too easy.

And the Z80 version has cool powerups like "Up-grade" and "Helper" and a ton of variations like Super Phoenix and Dark Phoenix!

I've never played the z80 version. Do they also have it for the TI-82? If so, I could check it out. Rarely to people make games for the TI-82 anymore. :'( And in my opinion, the ASM language for it is more... language-like. Maybe because I learned it first.
