TI-Chess Team and a Slew of Releases
Posted by Nick on 15 July 2000, 02:22 GMT

TI-Minesweeper v1.00Choice. Absolutely choice. Thomas Nussbaumer sent me a letter via carrier pigeon recently to inform me of not one, not three, not seventeen, but TWO simultaneous game releases by the TI-Chess Team.

TI-Minesweeper v1.00, for the 89 and the 92 Plus (see the delicious screenshot up there), features absolutely mad grayscale and incredibly straightforward gameplay. It seems to be almost exactly like the version on Windows. Now, you can take the greatness of Minesweeper with you. :)

Furthermore, TI-Con45 v1.01 also exists for the 89 and the 92 Plus. This is an (equally high-quality) clone of Connect Four. Not that connect4, I'm talking about the game! (har har har) At any rate, it's very good. I'm not one to judge, because I really do stink at Connect Four, but it looks like someone who would be skilled at Connect 4 would enjoy... okay, I'm rambling again.

Keep your eyes and ears (and other sensory organs) open for a new version of TI-Chess in the coming weeks from these people as well. Fantastically amazing!

The new Minesweeper and Connect 4/5 by TICT (TI Chess Team) are great games!! Great grayscale and AI. I love their chess game, never found a good chess game till now TIChess, I just wish that the progs would run under DoorsOS II as well as being a nostub prog but I don't know if that is possible since I know very little ASM and even less 68k ASM. But either way keep up the GREAT WORK!!

hmm my last comment got deleted... oh well, anyways it bugged me that i couldent run these from doors, but with doors i didn't need the launcher for ams 2.03. I also thought the controlls were less then intuitive (we all hate instructions), but i was able to figure them out. Keep up the good work ti-chess team!

Yes. They are great. I always think how to pay programmers for their great work. Maybe the congratulations is enough. Minesweeper rocks !

these games are written in c not asm

Hexalon, I know the games are in C but the calc doesn't read straight C it is a modifed 68k ASM that acts like C but is really ASM just better, and besides I know C/C++, but i wish that the games would be nostub and be able to run from DoorsII that would be good cause some games are nostub only and I forget and am like this game doesn't work when I remeber it is nostub so DoorsII won't run it. Oh well.

Back to learning ASM and making skins for mp3 players,

The author has the source code in with the zip file. Just re-compile it under TI-GCC without the no stub line. Add the doors.h one instead. I hope that helps.

later.

It's graphics like that that make me wish I had a TI-89

Only because the graphics? there are a lot of things inside a TI89 that can make you kill somebody to have one ! However, graphics like that proves the quality and power of the calc, much better than see it doing derivatives or integrals...

/me opens up drawer, takes out ti-89, blows off dust.

This is the first news item or any of the like in months that I have actually been interested in downloading :) Hey, that's summer.

This news item and the previous one were so interesting that I clicked on the 89 downloads before I finished reading the headline!

While your calc is sitting in your drawer, my four didn't get any time off thanks to summer school:|(its to jump ahead) and a ga tech engineering program:](for fun).

You messed up the mailto link. Instead of mailto:mailto:fred@ticalc.org, it should be mailto:fred@ticalc.org.

Although I don't understand what that has to do with connect4 anyway... :-)

Still, what is the significance of that link?

Anyways, we all make mistakes, particularly two certain BASIC programming groups full of hyperactive 12-year-olds, to paraphrase you.

Not just hyperactive 12-year-olds, but "power-hungry, pre-pubescent, twelve-year-old control freaks." ;-)

Most hyperactive 12-year-olds are arrogant narcissistic control freaks.

Nah, one of my favorite people in the world is an 11yo with ADHD. He's not particularly that hyper, and is very sweet and quite thoughtful and intelligent. I don't see him turning into a arrogant, narcissistic control freak when he's 12. (13, OTOH, is a different story. Most pubescents become hell to be around at that age--I was the same way--and it's amazing to think I wasn't killed by my own parents.)

Neither age nor things like ADHD (which I have myself) is an excuse for poor behavior. Someone who has poor behavioral skills simply needs to work on some character development.

For the record, when I *do* see such people screaming all over the Net and on Web pages, I just chuckle and find something productive and useful to do. Those who don't grow out of it will be beat up as adults. :)

I dunno - I don't think the two BASIC groups with hyperactive 12-year-olds actually /did/ paraphrase Nick much... ;)

Obviously none of you have been on any of the TI related IRC channels where Fred uses the nick connect4... thus the association.

You're probably right.

I'd probably also be right in saying that half of us wouldn't know who Fred is. :-)
