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.

Hey Adrien Follin, a word of advice: Don't curse repeatedly in your readme files. It tends to make us not want your programs.

What ever happened to Thomas Williamson, he made a bunch of great 86 games in a short span, such as dragon warrior and dragon quest and king of the fighters. I have enjoyed all of his games, and wished he would release some more b/c I am sure they would be of good quality and very fun too!

Here's a new post: TI launches the "useless" app, it makes you go mad, with nothing to do with your calc...
Useless app folows the line of TI previous apps and OS, completly useless...
TI says it is a must have because, it makes your calc slower, and has bugs, also when you don't wanna do nothing, well you really can't do anything, then you can blame your calc...
it was realeased for all flash TI calculators, enjoy...

I just realized that the word 'shit' no longer breaks forum rules... it is now allowed for any US network TV show, as long as it is in prime time... in fact, I've seen a couple shows already that used it - South Park included, of course, they used it something like 126 times in one episode.

I'd like to take the opportunity to respond to this, because I know it will be deleted (if any moderators bother to read down this far), and I'd like to be a part of a deleted thread. If this is deleted, though, none of you will know that. Except me. And then that will be boring because I can't share it with anyone. They wouldn't believe me. I don't know, maybe they would. This post was a waste of time. I'm sorry.

Technically a word can only be considered 'bad' if you allow it to have power over you. Words themselves are, by nature, simply either a combination of sounds or a grouping of symbols. They cannot have any intrinsic moral or ethical value. The words which have been deemed 'obscene' in American society are only seen as such because our society has issues with people who publicly discuss what those words represent: usually bodily functions, body parts, or sex. Yes, there are other 'curse' words which do not fit these categories, but these also have completely different meanings than what people seem to think they mean. For example, the word 'bitch' was originally simply another name for a mature female dog. Even some of the words that *do* fit these categories didn't originally mean what they do today. The dreaded 'F' word was originally an acronym for what prostitutes were licensed to commit in medieval days: 'F'ornication 'u'nder a 'C'onsenting 'K'ing. In most Western societies, these words have been flung around so often that they have begun to *lose* their shock value, which may or may not be a good thing. One the one hand, they are beginning to be seen as less obscene, but on the other hand, people are using them more and more as 'filler' words, replacing a more worthy adverb or adjective with something that has almost no meaning anymore.

So, you see, a word can only be obscene if you allow it to be. The words themselves are not bad; however, as long as people believe that they mean 'bad' things, they will continue to be taboo.

ok, no it isn't, it was just that stupid JavaScript error you never got rid of.

yeah, ok fine. you put a piece of hardware together. congratulations. I randomly wired a bunch of stuff together once and called it a TI memory expander; it ended up causing a fire in my friend's TI-89 link port. ha. so just because you have a schematic doesn't mean that it DOES anything. in fact, it STILL won't do JACK until - as you've promised - you make drivers for multiple devices, like mice, keyboards, etc. for EVERY LINKABLE TI CALC in existence (as you claimed). AND MAKE THEM WORK. good luck... LIIIEEEEEESSS!!!

and like I said, your device won't work. obviously. for an IMPS/2 mouse to work (or at least send a signal) ALL 6 WIRES must be used. You're only using 4. Once again, you're trying to BS your way into fame. Shut up and go away.

Ooh, looks like someone doesn't know their PS/2 mice:

1 - Data
2 - Not Implemented
3 - Ground
4 - +5v
5 - Clock
6 - Not Implemented

Clock(5) goes to one of the TI data lines
Data(1) goes to the other data line
+5v and Gnd go to the 4.5v source, and Gnd goes to the base of the 2.5mm jack.

Why would you need a mouse on something with a screen smaller than a palmpilots screen? Thats pretty fucking stupid. O, and by the way, I belive that you do have to have all 6 plugs if you plan to have anything else besides a mouse work. You should also redesign your website, as it is so crappy, why have help and trouble shooting, arent they the same damn thing?!?!?!?!

OH YEAH, GIVE US SOME DOORSXP SCREEN SHOTS!!!!!!!!!!

How stupid can he be, I dont know how to moderate my forums, c001 I figured it out! What an idiot. (Please no comments on how my forums don't even work, thats because, I still don't have server that supports PHP(if you would like to host it on your computer, email me! And I don't want to send it to some other website like B2Go or bravenet. I want it my way!)

If you really, really want a board, I could host it on my computer... it's PHPBB... which is a really nice, easy-to-moderate board system. and since I'm on a triple T1 connection and I leave my computer on almost constantly, you could be sure of good uptimes and quick access.

I might just take you up on that, and if you could host the whole site (It is only like 6Megs right now) that would be better! If you look at my website (hit link above) you can see that I am looking for a real webmaster, and a server right now. I hate the 0catch hosting, they give you like 100MB, but no automation languages(PHP,CGI,MySLQ). I'll email you soon (As soon as spymac mail works again!)

most people with split personalities don't even realize they HAVE split personalities, and the personalities usually don't know what the others have done. therefore, you're trying to convince me that you WOULD know. like I said, how do you know it really ISN'T you posting all that? it could just be your second self doing that...
