Posted by Eric on 10 April 2001, 05:03 GMT

Find more information about the contest, including a list of the winners and their programs, here. Congratulations to all the winners!

Deal. I mean, seriously, you can submit, but like any contest, the decision of the judges is final. No need to complain now, it won't change anything.

sma is my favorite ti-calc game every made. In a close second is Street Fighter, those 2 89 games are amazing.

I can't seem to get sf2turbo to work on my calc.I have HW 2 and have tried 3 ams's 1.05,2.00,2.05 and I still can't get it to work.I think sf2 is the baddest game ever but I cannot get it work on my calc.HELP!!!!!!!

SF2 is one of the oldest quality games for the calculator. There could be two different problems here because of it's age.
First, it is compatible with AMS 1.00 as far as I have found.
Second, it might not be able to support HW2 since that was released after the game was. I may be wrong, but this is my experience.

First of all, you need Doorsos installed, second of all, you need the absolute newest libraries, some of which you cannot obtain on ticalc.org, and third, you need nothing but the SMA files and the libraries. Personally, I just don't think it is worth it.

I really had no problem finding all the special required libraries considering they are all on the SMA team's site. Also, I have very easily made SMA run with other things on, and using UniOS and TEOS, so I'm not quite sure where your declarations came from. I may be wrong, but this is my experience.

Apps in Detached Solutions Contest

Are any of the applications actual .8XK files? No. Why not?

Most of these authors didn't have the SDK or any tools to create an application file. That's what this contest was for, to promote (future) create of applications. Entrants could submit programs, not necessarily in application format, as as a prize, they can win SDK's and application signings so that they can convert their programs to applications. Additionally, most of the programs submitted aren't done yet, so it wouldn't make too much sense to sign them just yet.

Actually, the Astro entry (which won first prize for Educational) is already in application format. It's not a .8xk file, because it's not done and hasn't been signed yet, but you can try it on the simulator.

Well, the reason my entry, The Shadow of Nárkemen, was not in Flash App form is because it is over 16K and I don't know how to make multi-page apps yet.

Funny... None of the downloadable programs work in MirageOS... Only in Ion or some other excentric shell.

In my experience, MirageOS has done a fine job running Ion programs. In theory they should work.

BTW, the RPG is not meant for 83+ just yet, as indicated by the author's web site.

Actually, only one out of all of the downloadable programs even work in Ion, let alone MirageOS. 0 (zero; none) work in MirageOS. The BasicTutor works in Ion great though.

That's interesting...
Being one of the judges, I had to run all of these programs, and I tested all (except for two in different formats, plus one that needed Ion) in MirageOS.

Yeah. Weird. Nothing there wirjs in MirageOS for me. DO you have any solutions? The basic tutor that does work, only works in Ion and the others aren't seen in 'any' shell at all.

Well, being the author of Nifty, I can assure you: it wan't programmed for MirageOs. It can be executed with Asm(prgmNIFTY).

There were two reasons for this:
1) I do rarely prograqm for shells, because I know plenty of people wh fow a while ago couldn't even pronounce the word, let alone use it, I want to reach those people too with my program.
2) Rememer, the "ultimate goal" of the contest was (among others) to be able to make your program a flash app. I think programming a program fo a shell makes it only harder to convert it to a flash app, because you get tempted to use shell-specific routines.

Ofcourse, this only counts for Nifty, since Dan E. stated previously that most of the programs could be run from MirageOs. (Perhaps you use an outdated version, or had a bad download.

Actually it will be quite a while since I am still working on Part II for the 83. I need to be completely finished with all three parts before I can release the 83+ application.
