Turbo Breakout 68K, Flib v1.7
Posted by Nick on 1 June 2000, 23:35 GMT

Turbo Breakout 68KFlib, the assembly library used in BASIC coding for the 68K calculators, has been updated to version 1.7. Made by Francois Leiber, Flib contains many updates and optimizations. It also adds a folder function and others to maintain a high score list. Grab yourself this juicy bit for the 89 and the 92 Plus.

Flavien Racine of BAPG has written a wonderful piece of grayscality, Turbo Breakout 68K, for the 89 and the 92 Plus. In four-color grayscale, this program features customizable levels and it looks really really really good (see screenshot), but it's prone to crashing on just about everything. You have been warned.

As many of you may have guessed, I just had a little thing called "the end of the school year" and, as a result, another less-little thing called "graduation" is coming up. Updates this weekend on my end will be sparse. Sorry. :(

yup Turbo Breakout 68k is really awsome, but it seems that the author posted this file on ticalc.org pretty late, since it has been on ti-fr like weeks ago... Flavien Racine is such a good programmer, making all those games like Pacman, which are my favorites =)

yup yup yup! Turbo Breakout is a really good game. It runs fast even with 4 level grayscale. It dosn't matter that the game was posted late(maybe coverting French>English?), its out now and we can all play it now! =)

I do have to agree. This is a great game. (The first asm breakout clone for the 89 which doesn't crash every time I try to play.) I'd have to call it amazing, did it not have the crazy physics.

you should try that breakout game by joe w.(the guy that made dimonda, and the ion shell for the ti83+)
it is not as good as tbo, but i just had to tell you that tbo was not the only working breakout....

Wait a minute....I tried that one before. It is the one that kept getting all weird with the contrast and not working correctly. So Tbo is still the best.

I think it should be given an award for putting up with being confused with Switzerland. Or maybe vice versa.
But they should NOT be given an award for singing. Eugh.

Hey, dude...Flavien Racine didn't even upload it. I did it for him. Nick and I were on AIM one day when I asked him if he's ever played this game, and when he said no and that I should upload it, I did! The game's been out for a VERY long time now...its been on TI-News, TI-Fr, and the Flash Z homepage for a while. Its not much of a new program if you've been checking those sites. THis version of the game is not very crash-prone on my calculator...but when the ball starts gaining speed, the paddle always slows down to a crawl for me, ultimately making me lose the game. Otherwise, this is a magnificent game that deserves much merit.

The author makes good games despite the fact that he's french, not because of it!

He means that if you were to, you shouldn't, but if you were to have a company have a little advertisement at the top of this website, you'd be supported as long as the school system continues to use TI graphing calculators. It's a bad idea for the users of the website though, so don't do it. I mean, ticalc could probably recieve more hits in an hour than zilog.com in a day. Ticalc is that great! =)

probably because there's no mistaking metric units for standard units when programing :-)

Im going to have to go with Mars Patrol. You'd think with all the billions spent on the Mars Lander, it'd have some kind of laser to fight back against the Mars Patrol ship...
