Doom for the Nspire
Posted by Michael on 10 March 2011, 01:53 GMT

Prepare to be amazed: Mrakoplaz of the Omnimaga community has released a beta version of nDoom for the Nspire. nDoom is a port of the original id Software classic and makes full use of the Nspire's 90 MHz processor to give you all the first-person shooter action you crave. nDoom is built for Ndless 2.0 and runs on nSpire OS versions 1.7 - 2.1.

Wow it has been ages since you last posted news MV O.o

I tried the game on my Clickpad and it was really amazing. Some freezes occurs late in game but for the time it last it was just epic. Granted, the TI-Nspire is more than enough to support such software, but there still remains the fact it's the original Doom on a calculator and not a clone. (Although Gemini, Wolfeinstein 83+ and ZDoom were impressive)

I hope he releases a finished version here eventually.

I have to say it works much better on the Touchpad, I never found an error, 0 errors! No freezing, no bugs, no problems at all! The lighting is good enough, no problems with it either.

NDless 2.0 works fantastically on the Touchpad too, hence I say the NSpire has now no problems dealing with awesome games.

I've known about this for a while, but still, it's amazing what nDOOM is like.

This. Is. Amazing.

I've only just started checking in on the TI community again recently, and then I see this. Impressive! :)

Wow I haven't seen you in a while indeed! I remember last seeing you near the end of my first ventures in #TCPA, late 2005, then you released Banchor The Hellspawn. I still need to try that game because it looked really great and I got a TI-86 now.

Ah the TI-86, good times programming on that thing :) If you do play Banchor, let me know if you think it's too hard or too easy.. I think it might need some tweaking regarding damage, etc.

Yeah I wish the 86 was still popular. Today the TI-89/92/92+/v200 calcs seems to be slowly heading the same way as the TI-86 did.

I'll let you know if your game might need balancing or not. I love RPGs, although I tend to lose interest quick when I have to spend 2 hours gaining 1 level, especially when we can barely beat the first monsters in the game. :P

Yeah I assume he didn't update his ticalc.org profile in years. His site used to be jamesv.calc.org (yes, for new people here, there used to be a calc.org) then later jvti.org. He probably abandonned the site long ago.

Yeah it's meant to be www.jvti.org, but the domain expired last year cos I was lazy... I just repurchased it last night and I'm in the middle of getting the hosting fixed, so it should be back up in the next few days :)
