Obliterate Bonds of Oppression With Online Gaming
Posted by Nikky on 23 March 2011, 01:22 GMT

Kerm Martian, author of the globalCALCnet system capable of linking up calculators in the TI-83+/84+ family over the internet, has released a companion game to accompany this new technology. Obliterate: Scorched Earth for Calculators allows you to play this classic game on your beloved calculator with your friends. Utilizing an Arduino-based bridge, users can take advantage of this great system called the "internet" and shell each other to Oblivion while being thousands of miles away.

No word yet on IPv6 compatibility.

Thanks nikky! I should note that:

> It also works as a single-player game with AIs!
> It also works as a local multiplayer game, including two-player link play via CALCnet
> Direct USB gCn is under development at Cemetech, and indeed a beta version was released today. This removes the need to use an Arduino to connect your calculator to the internet.

Thanks David! Have you given it a try yet? I don't think I've seen you on Oblithub.

I haven't, I have an arduino, a 84+ Keypad for the NSpires, but haven't tried it yet, sorry.

What about IPv6 compatibility?

I don't know about worms, but given the trust-based networking of obliterate it wouldn't be hard to cheat.

It would indeed be very easy to cheat. I don't know how effective a Cn2.2 worm would be, though. :)

This is great, I'm also glad an USB bridge is currently under testing.

Thanks Souvik! I'm excited that people are starting to write more CALCnet2.2 programs now.

Couldn't you have done this with an implementation of USBDRV8X ?
