Matt Teiken Releases The Next Dimension v1.5
Posted by Nick on 12 December 1999, 20:22 GMT

The Next Dimension v1.5Matt Teiken has released The Next Dimension v1.5. This TI-89 game is an interesting side-scroller featuring grayscale, a great plot, and oxygen tanks you have to pick up to stay alive. It's very challenging!

Also note that TND v1.5 almost certainly won't work on AMS v2.03. The game itself is about 32KB and it also features grayscale.

If anyone can make this game work with AMS 2.03 by 12:00 PM tomorrow afternoon (Monday, December 13) I will personally eat several small rodents. That is all.

Im just glad to know that with the 2.03 buzz going around here, ticalc isn't ignoring great games.

I was wondering with all this v2.03 stuff going on, is anybody attempting to make grayscale work on HW v2.00. IMO that should be the first step instead of games on v2.03, there aren't even calcs in the US with v2.03 in them yet. Once grayscale is implemented, then all of the really cool games (really large ones) like The Next Dimension can be ported to v2.03:P hehe, now I'm basically saying that this TI-89 game could be ported to the TI-89?!?!?! Kinda messed

Just wondering if there is any developments on grayscale on HW 2.00 calcs

half of what you said I do not understand, but I'll try to answer anyways :P

From what I've read on these boards, people are trying to get grayscale on the hw2 calcs.

People who've installed 2.03 on their calcs have it, so yes, 2.03 IS on many US calculators, just not being sold WITH them.

Large games like TND cannot be ported to 2.03, at least without source code editing as I've read on these boards, due to the 8k limit imposed by the new rom. They have to be made to work with the patch I believe.

TND is already on the ti89, so it doesn't have to be ported, unless you mean port it to the 2.03 rom :P

I installed AMS 2.03 yesterday and there is No Way im going back to 1.0, because:

1) Grayscale is working!!
2) Two of my favorite games - Tetris and Phoenix - are working!
3) I write a grayscale game - its already 20kb long - and its working without changing the source (I just used the new versuin of gray4lib, and "launch" prog)

Do you mean that if I upgrade my HW 2.00 calc to AMS v2.03, grayscale will work? Or is that only HW v1.00 calcs being upgraded to ams v2.03?

There are *NO* (current) grayscale routines that work on HW 2 calcs, AMS 1.05 or 2.03. It will be some time before this happens, as the programmer will have to write their own screen drawing routines to refresh the screen. This is very slow and will cause some major flickering. TI's routines (in the tios.h file) are no good for HW 2 calcs and that is what causes most of the problems.

Good work Matt.

TND Bug

Does anyone have the problem I have w/ TND, in which after running TND the cursor on the HOME screen slows down excessivly--making it hard to type in problems fast when I'm taking a math test?

Well....I've found if you just turn the calculator off after you run TND, the cursor is at normal speed. No need to reply.
