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.

On a side note, I dont post that much but i visit almost every day. I think its time TICALC.ORG got a face lift. The colors and scheme are getting a little old.

Try doing the 3 things listed on my reply, the 3rd top-level comment above yours. If none of that helps, and you're still interested in getting it to work, email me.

First, I noticed a 'problem' yesterday in the 'bin' folders. The files a3dgfx, a3dmodel, and a3dspr are unneeded. You can delete these, and then the game should easily fit on the calculator.

If you're a bit short on RAM, you can also send about half of the files at one time, then archive them (2nd - for VAR-LINK, select the files using F4, and archive them by pressing F1 and 8).

And you can delete full folders by selecting the folder, pressing F4 so that the folder and all its contents are checked, and then delete it.

Thanks mates but i still have some doubts!
-How much memory can be archived, what's the difference of a file to be archived or not?
-Is there any program to put password to texts?

Hey PolarDPres, what happened to your tank? Us _normal_ people are in need of it...

First its *intro music*, then *funky music*, then *baroque music*, and now Star Wars?!?!? What's next, Monsters, Inc.?

What's wrong with Monsters, Inc.?
First, even I didn't know how my intro music went. So, it became funky.
Well, funky music got boring after a while, then I changed to baroque. Hey, the Grand Masters!
Then I picked up Star Wars. Who knows what's next?
Monsters, Inc. isn't that bad! See link.

Sigh, the reply before this one is totally inappropriate.

Archive memory is "Flash ROM", which can only be read. This means archived files are read-only. By pressing 2nd 6, you can see how much archive memory (Flash ROM) is free.

I don't really understand the second question. There are ways to password protect the calc, but I don't know about specific files. Plus, this (second question) is getting offtopic, so I will not elaborate more.

Is it just me, or have there been a LOT of bugs in the appearance of the news boards lately? Like, lines connecting the posts are missing, or bits of code show up at the end?

Sobre todos los Sábados, pongo un gato en mis pantalones. El gato... no le gusta mis pantalones. Me rasguña y me lastima. Estúpidos gatos. Yo pienso que voy a matarlos.

On all Saturdays, I put a cat in my trousers. The cat... it does not like my trousers. It scratches me and it hurts me. Stupid cats. I think that I am going to kill them.
