Ncaster: Nspire Raycasting Engine
Posted by Travis on 7 June 2010, 00:49 GMT

Bayley Wang (who had previously released a TI-Nspire Ray Tracer Demo) has released Ncaster, an Nspire raycasting engine designed to be used in the creation of Doom-style games in C. It shows off the power of the Nspire's hardware: Sprites, textures, and vertical movement are supported, and blocks may be of variable height and have variable-resolution textures. Check out Ncaster's file info page for some animated screenshots.

Me neither...mind you, if I had an NSPIRE, this would be one of the first programs i would get.

On a side note, I didn't know the NSPIRE could program in C.

Is there any chance of vector based maps being supported in the future so we can see a real Doom port to a graphing calculator? :)

Pretty sweet-looking...I have no doubt we've barely touched the surface of what's possible with the Nspire hardware.
