CalcRogue for the 89
Posted by Michael on 10 April 2004, 18:34 GMT

[CalcRogue] Our illustrious file archiver Joey brought to my attention a program that's been overlooked in our archives for about three weeks: CalcRogue. In the style of NetHack, CalcRogue is a character-based game for the 89. It has quests, dungeons, skills, spells, and all of the other expected elements of such a game. It also has a high rating, thanks to the sixteen people who have rated it (hint hint, review files!).

what ever happened to that grammar police guy... :)

Yeah, the DOS version is cool; hasn't this game been around longer than three weeks? I seem to have seen it somewhere quite a while ago.

The game's been around for a long time. I know friends have had it on their calculators for at least a year or two. I think it got updated about three weeks ago. I guess sometimes the ticalc.org staffers aren't on top of things as much as the community is. I want to be able to play it on my V200 and my computer.

Y'know, if you ever see a neat program like this in the archives, you could send an e-mail to news@ticalc.org. :-D

Are you talking about lord_nightrose, the spelling nazi?

I've never seen or heard of this game before. So, it's a text-based RPG-type game? And the review and ratings are kinda nice for it... 8.69, currently. I guess people must like it.

It is actually a Win32 console version, not a DOS version.

So THAT'S where people are getting the DOS version. I was about to search around on the internet to find it. LOL, I'm really slow.

... It's my BIRTHDAY! :)

Wait, so there's a new version of this now? I played an earlier versions and it was awesome, but there were a few bugs.

I honestly don't know if it is a new version, the file hasn't been updated since March 16 of this year.

My only problem with this game is that is absolutely will not run on a Voyage 200! It simply won't run! I've played (and loved) it on my friend's TI-92+, but I can't play it on my own calculator! Arrgh, will the author recompile it so it will run on a V200? Or at the least, someone could tell me how to compile it so it would run on a V200...

V200exepatch? I hadn't heard of that. Thanks for the help. I really like this game. Yay!

V200ExePatch? Ugh. Isn't there a better way? I don't like how patched programs aren't PPG compressed. '-_-

Write a routine:

patches executable
detects data type
if type=ppg
ttstart(program)
elseif type=asm or type=prgm or type=komp
flib("komp:"&program)

Erm, using ttstart doesn't work on it. It gives a "Wrong Calculator Model" error.

actually, the name of the genre of games is 'roguelike', (eg: nethack is in the style of rogue) see URL for more details

Oh. My. God. I can't tell if that's funny or sad.

[Off-topic; forgive me, MV] Is anyone here involved with the FIRST robotics competition? Our team is headed to the nationals in Atlanta next week, and I'm curious if I'll be seeing any fellow ticalcers.

I wish. It sounds like DI (Destination Imagination) (see link), but better.

I hadn't heard of NetHack, so I downloaded it. Gotta love opensource: they are more likely to have a MacOS binary.

I'll be in Atlanta next week, just not for programming! I'm going there for a fencing tournament. (see link for details) I hope to see a programming friend there (he's also in calcware). I'll be there from the 22nd to about the 28th.

What team are you in the FIRST Competition? I can't go this year, but my team, Team Lightning #862, is going. Our robot was doing really bad at Regionals, and the only way we got to nationals was that they picked our team randomly :P

Huh. Well then...

The game looks pretty cool, though I really don't use my calculator much for gaming anymore. I actually use it for math. (Amazing, I know.) I saw someone in my physics class playing it though.

Pie day could be fun too. (Pi*e=8.53973422267356706546355086...) Then we could actually eat PIES! :)

Does 'S' have any significant number associated with it? We should come up with a Mathematical dictionary:
pi, e, i, c (speed of light in a vacuum), au, g, and many others could be used because they are all constants (with the possiple arguable exception of the speed of light)...hey! you could spell "piece" with that...pi*e*c*e = 6959203550.8417e9 meters/second
