FAT-Engine v1.0 Released
Posted by Eric on 24 April 2002, 09:47 GMT

After fourteen months of development, TICT has released FAT-Engine v1.0 for the TI-89 and TI-92+, a raycasting engine useful for multidirectional sprites, HUD support, and more. A bunch of FAT-Engine games will be released in the very near future, so be sure to look for those. Find out more on the TICT website.

Update (Niklas): Modified the links above to point to the ticalc.org archives. You can also find the technology demos for the FAT for both the TI-89 and the TI-92+.

Some of the games mentioned above have also been added to the archives:

  • Corridor 92 is only for the TI-92+ at the moment, but according to the author the 89 version is coming. More information can be found on the author's site.
  • Shoot Out is for both the TI-89 and the TI-92+ and contains both AI opponents as well as the ability to play one-on-one over the link cable.

Update (Niklas): As of demo version 2.1, Corridor 92 now also supports the TI-89. Happy gaming!

Yeah! I don't know if anyone bothered to try it out, but I played Shoot Out and it was really cool. I think that could turn out to be a really neat game. I like the quick 3d graphics.

If you have an 89, what reason is there not to try it out? (Other than the fact that the library stuff takes approx. 100k)

I really liked the game!

OBTW, can you post the asm file of prgmBAD on ticalc? I want to <em>try</em> (I know you can't use HTML, but oh well) to port it to the 82. I doubt I'll be able to. Look at my assembly game for the 82 and the code for it. It's really bad, so I don't think it will be possible for me, but I'll at least try. :)

There once was a man who went to a computer trade show. Each day as
he entered, the man told the guard at the door:
"I am a great thief, renowned for my feats of shoplifting. Be
forewarned, for this trade show shall not escape unplundered."
This speech disturbed the guard greatly, because there were millions
of dollars of computer equipment inside, so he watched the man carefully.
But the man merely wandered from booth to booth, humming quietly to himself.
When the man left, the guard took him aside and searched his clothes,
but nothing was to be found.
On the next day of the trade show, the man returned and chided the
guard saying: "I escaped with a vast booty yesterday, but today will be even
better." So the guard watched him ever more closely, but to no avail.
On the final day of the trade show, the guard could restrain his
curiosity no longer. "Sir Thief," he said, "I am so perplexed, I cannot live
in peace. Please enlighten me. What is it that you are stealing?"
The man smiled. "I am stealing ideas," he said.

You are most likely lying...Check http://www.google.com/search? hl=en&safe=off&q=%22This+speech+ disturbed+the+guard+greatly %2C+because+there+were+ millions%22

(close up the spaces, that's to bypass the character limit). Funny how all those sites have the exact same story...

Stealing Ideas?

Stealing Ideas--that doesn't make sence.

What I think he could have been doing, is distracting the guard while his accomplice steals a bunch of stuff.

He still claimed it was his, which is plagarism. Anyone who steals others works should be dragged into the street and trampled by slow moving cars in my opinion.

No, it's in .ezi format (EZasm). I'll convert it to regular 83+ asm sometime and send that to TiCalc.org...

tsr mean terminate and stay resident.

You run the program once and it terminates, but it has installed code into ram that stays resident. By manipulating system pointers Code execution is redirected to the code in ram.

In this way it is possible to add functionality to the calc that is not already built in.

Above url is my homepage That has many tsrs available for download. I strongly recomend the one called "complete"

Sorry for the plug ;)
