Cemetech Doors CS Programming Contest Announced
Posted by Travis on 24 June 2010, 06:03 GMT

Cemetech is holding a Doors-CS-themed programming contest for BASIC and ASM programs. The deadline is September 5th (at 23:59:59 U.S. Eastern time). The grand prize will be a TI-73 converted into a TI-83 Plus with Chameleon; there will also be other prizes which have not been revealed.

Update: A TI-83 Plus SE has been announced as a runner-up prize.

This might be incentive to finish up one of my DCS projects from a few years ago.

You have at least three options! ADrive is now feasible, since the Runprog vector is implemented, and you still have iPaint and Strategic Command (?).

Well, it's not a TI-73 anymore. :D BrandonW himself converted it to a TI-83+ with Chameleon and installed it in a TI-83+ case. It's unique among 83+s in that it can run code at and about $c000, and can therefore run assembly programs that are as large as user RAM. :)

oh wow... thats why...
thats crazy!!!
but then where are you going to find assembly programs that huge lol!

no one makes them XD

p.s. i personally would prefer a TI-83 software in a TI-73 :) (but i suck at programming lol)

If you were to win the contest, no doubt you could write yourself a big program. :)

Just to let you all know (including Travis), Merthsoft, ne Shaun McFall, another longstanding community member, has generously offered to donate a TI-83+SE as the runner-up prize for the contest!

BTW the contest also allows Axe Parser entries, but despite the Sept 5th deadline, entries downloads are not published until Sept 16th 12 AM GMT-5, which means that you are allowed to enter both the Omnimaga and Cemetech contest at once with the same, modified entry (for the Cemetech contest, you would just need to add something related to Doors CS to your program)

Well, technically, all you have to do is set Axe to compile for Doors and you solve the problem ;) It just won't take advantage of many cool DCS features, thus making it less likely to win.

Actually, within a couple weeks, Axioms will be implemented in Axe allowing for external assembly libraries to add new commands. This can take advantage of the DoorsCS libraries already available to ASM programmers but in a more intuitive way for Axe programmers.

Nifty! As long as it provides a way to pass registers and pointers to RAM, and receive back registers and pointers to RAM, you'll be all set to use the Doors CS libraries within Axe. Of course, you can already do so with some inline ASM, but it sounds like that's not something most Axe programmers do.
