There Are Too Many Programs Released This Week
Posted by Nick on 2 April 2000, 23:25 GMT

Bigdyna v2.1 BetaYou guys need to get some kind of schedule going or something, where one person uploads a program one day, and another person does it the next day, or something! You're killing me here!
Maybe it's the weekends that do it...

Most outdated goes first: Don Barnes - or someone - uploaded his copy of Super Mario Quest v1.1.0, but forgot to claim it, so this one got overlooked. Badly.
Two (three?) days later, this is getting posted. New features include a barrel-load of bugfixes and improved physics. The 89 and 92 Plus versions are available for DoorsOS II only. The 92 version is for Fargo II users.

One of my personal favorites, BigDyna v2.1 Beta (see screenshot), has been updated for the 89. Bomberman is honestly, in my opinion, the greatest game of all time. Human society reached its apex in achievement with the creation of Bomberman. It now works on AMS v2.03, and HW2 support is existent, but limited. Download it here. The author, Jean Canazzi, can be reached here.

I'd put this in its own news item, but I like these big hulking oversized news items, so there. Quentin Preuvot of Ti-Fr claimed and notified me of this wonderful, nifty, amazingly fantastic program, that has this, oh, how shall we put it, je ne sais quoi - a program that defeats the problems people had with their memory on Hardware 1.00 on AMS v2.03 - a problem that didn't allow users to get the extra half of the memory they so desired.
This fixes that.
MaxMem v1.00 can be downloaded from our archives for the 89 and the 92 Plus. This (obviously) only works for HW1 calculators using AMS v2.03.

I've spent an hour writing and preparing this news item and I'm still not done! Niklas Brunlid has updated SomeGame v0.65 again. Download it for the 89 and the 92 Plus...again!

A bug has been fixed in HW2Patch that now enables one to patch their calculator indefinitely. Patch your calc 89-style and/or 92 Plus-style.

AS92, the famous on-calc ASM compiler, has been updated by Deep Brain Activity. It's now ported to AMS v2.03 and macros have been added. Grab yourself some of that sweet lovin' for the 89 and the 92 Plus.

It's 4:12. Do you know where Ontic v0.99 is? I do! A 68K-based on-calc C compiler, Ontic v0.99 features complete stability and some bugfixes. Download the developer version for the 89 and the 92 Plus. You a user? We have the goods for you: the user version is available for the 89 and the 92 Plus.

This had better be it, because I need to eat dinner! The delectable Kouri Rosenberg has released TxtView v1.52 for the 83 and the 83 Plus for Ion. Sam Heald did the porting to the 83 Plus. Features include a bugfix related to the APD feature. You want source code for this? Well, we've got that too! Source code is available for the 83 and the 83 Plus.

I'm going to sleep.

Whoa...wish I owned a TI-89.

And yes, I know this is the first, you know...

You don't own a TI-89?!! Well get one. What would the world be if nobody owned a TI-89...? Don't answer that.

Oh yeah, hats off to Nick for his great work! =)I hope you're not losing any sleep just for us.

Just for Nick - I'll have the revised HTML of the TI-83 Plus Asm tutorials to you by Tuesday. I'm going to include 7 tutorials in the first release because tutorials 1-3 really don't make sense without tutorials 4-7 and vice versa.

Now I'm going to get some sleep. Snore... Snore... zzz.

I thought Jean Canazzi had resolved to stop working on BigDyna (it was on TI-FR a few days ago)... ???

Hi, this is Jean Canazzi, alias Blue-Z, I am the only Bigdyna author from the beginning :-)
I decided to stop Bigdyna because I was getting tired with this project, however I though it did worth to fix the few remaining bugs I knew before leaving.

it not working on hw2 ams 2.03 is a pretty big bug... are you planning on fixing that? just wondering...

wait, on ti89ers.tripod.com it says that one of their staff members made bigdyna... someone could ask them... this is getting confusing.

Concerning the ti89ers.tripod.com website, I am not really a member of it, the guys only wanted to display my name in their about page to make it look better, so I obviously answered yes :-)
I did this for fun because this site really made me laugh...

Hence the "limited support." Well, Jean COULD use the grayscale libraries, which would cover both HW1 and HW2 support, but I think he uses his own code. Make sure that you're running the HW2 version of graphlib and gray4lib, and if that still doesn't work then you'll have to wait for Jean to try to decipher and implement my code.

He said he had a HW1 calc, so there's no good reason why grayscale wouldn't be working...

What does "existent but limited HW2 support" mean? It runs but the arrow keys don't work? ;-P

Seriously, what does it mean?

It means that the game will run and display something, but the graphics will be horrible.

Neat! Lots of good stuff coming in =) I remember thinking "when's AMS2.03 EVER gonna be usefully compatible with anything I like?"

Oh yeah, does anyone know if "basiclib" might come out sometime for AMS 2.03? I miss it ^_^

Re: Re: There Are Too Many Programs Released This Week

Well, there is fLib 2.0, but all of its functions don't work... and there's GLib 1.01 which gives me address errors... so I don't know, someone should either fix flib/glib (or come out with hlib? ;-) ) or port basiclib...

GLib works fine on my HW2/AMS 2.03 89.

Well it's nice to be able to use ASM in Basic programming but it has limited functions and is right now the same thing as BasicLib.

gLib giving you Address errors? Could you describe what happened, please (you don't give your email address, so I can't email you)? Well, anyway basiclib had big bugs that happened to you not at the time you launched it, but later; these are fixed and it will be released soon. Check out the last updates! They will always be on my site.

Too many programs indeed, and, might I add, where is any mention of an 85 or an 86 in the article? It must be the spring fever, or something. Myself, my spring break is over, as today is April 2, Sunday, and tomorrow I have to get back to school, so to celebrate this week of freedom, I also released a program, TI90, so it must be the weather. I imagine the same will be true for the first part of summer, and after that, everyone's brains will get really slow, and no updates for a month. By the way, with all of these programs, I started thinking. Guys, ticalc.org staff, do you have a table where it says like number of uploads, so that we can at least get the idea about why the boom? See ya, and keep smiling. Wolf
