Arena 3D released
Posted by Niklas on 7 October 2002, 15:00 GMT

More 3D goodness: Malcolm Smith just released Arena 3D, a First Person Shooter built using Thomas Nussbaumers FAT Engine for the TI-89, TI-92 Plus and Voyage 200 calculators. The game has a Rocket Arena theme, you can strafe, and special features include a double-speed mode and a "hit find" maneuver (automatically turn to whoever/whetever shot you). More features, options and levels are planned; take a look at Malcolms web page for more information.

One small point: being a pre-release, there are still bugs. Malcolm notes one in particular in the readme.txt file, so make sure to backup any important files before you try this out.

Update (Niklas): Malcolm has released an Arena 3D SDK (sort of) with everything you need to create your own levels.

Very slick. I just played it on my 92+. Simply amazing for a calculator game.

Keep up the good work.

When it will be ou for TI-83 Plus?

Never. The 83 (+(SE)) is a z80 calculator, and this game is only for 68k. A port would require re-writing the whole game, proctically from scratch. If you want to play it, buy an 89!

or find a ROM somewhere and use VTI. either way, it'll never come out for TI-83+.

I'm gonna steal the Popemobile and cover it with pictures of nude women; see if I can set off the old guy's ticker.

in case you didn't notice, I'm not Catholic, and the Pope scares me.

Yeah, you *could* just go out and buy one, but I think a purchase of about $180 (WalMart price) should be just a little bit justified, instead of ust saying "I want it!".

dr00l!, w00t!, and, of course, p00p!

Parade all day long, Baby!

Serial port? Please... get one with USB ports and I'll be impressed.

Well, it's better than the TI protocol...
Raise one line for a 1, the other line for a 0.
Acknowledge by raising the other line.

Ever try to decode that with a PLC? Try it with TI-PLC!

For "god sake", stop talking about HP we are on a TI forum...
HP is more an PDA than a calculator, you can add ram and rom, etc...
In your bio you say you want a TI-92 plus, well you decide, first you want a TI92, them you want a HP, them a PDA and then a Pentium 4...

I really think HP has a shitty CPU, and his screen is small, when compared to 89 or TI92/voyage 200.

Re: Jealousy begins now

I'm not going to buy my 89 now, they must be launching a 89 Silver, with tons of memory and a faster cpu...
And,uhhh...a color screen, and infrared, and usb ports, and stereo sound, that would be great to...

Re: Re: Jealousy begins now

>> tons of memory
go to sami.ticalc.org and look for the pixpander (i think it's there)

>> color screen
search on google. You can buy these (with serial input) for $25.

>> stereo sound
the link port has 2 wires. stereo has been demonstrated.

>> infrared
sami.ticalc.org

>> faster cpu
Richfiles

Everything but the clear case, I asked TI-cares for that, and they said 'Later, buddy. Or never.' jk

Youcould also add a qwerty keyb, and hook them all up to a bus (like ADB (good idea--use ADB mouse)) via PLCs. and address them. Write an OS and you're on!
