Grayscale on TI-83 Plus
Posted by Michael on 19 January 2003, 22:58 GMT

A stunning new programming kit has been released by Diederik Kingma of Maxcoderz. Grayscale Programming Package v1.0 is available for the 83 and 83+. It provides tools for programmers to develop grayscale programs on the 83-series calculators. The demos cast aside any flickers of doubt regarding the viability of grayscale on the 83+; this technology is worth checking out.

Lol, I love the way you actually post news Michael unlike all the past news managers. I hope you dont overdue it after a while, unless it doesnt take much time to post new news. I have some news worthy of a post, and i sent an email a couple days ago so ill just post it here. http://www.radicalsoft.org/ a site your a member of, has released Chasm an oncalc asm compiler for the 83+.

I like all the news items. It makes me visit TiCalc.org several times a week, instead of once a month. I like to be informed of stuff going on in the TI community and if any new cool stuff is avaliable for the calc. I don't want something going by and not knowing about it because the news person "Didn't want to clutter up the news page", y'know what I mean? You don't? Oh well...I do. :)

Ditto. Among many other sites (Yahoo! mail, for one), TICalc.org is one that I visit numerous times each day.

I visit ticalc.org, yahoo.com (mail), itsyourturn.com (games), and ccoderz.org multiple times a day... ticalc.org probably gets the most hits. I think I view it about 4-10 times a day. And now, since there's more and more articles, I think my viewing frequency might increase.

Now all we need are the archives... are you allowed to work on the archives, MV? Of course, that's not your job, so we can't expect you to do that ;)

Now this is what i have been waiting for. Many months have passed since something truly interesting, like the release of "Gemini" on 83 plus, has happened. The concept of havening The Legend of Zelda : Links Awakening on Ti-83 plus is AWESOME. Hopefully the game will be finalized and completed, and a new chain of grayscale games will emerge. kick ass.

Nobody said anything about FINISHING it, it's just a demo for his greyscale engine...

Maybe, but there is a plan.txt file which says:

plan for FULL game:
- code 8000 bytes
- sprites 5000 bytes
- text 1000 bytes
- map 6000 bytes
- overworld 6x6: 2880 bytes
1st dungeon 4x4: 1280 bytes
2nd dungeon 4x4: 1280 bytes
rest 7 screens: 560 bytes

Sounds sorta planned out to me; maybe when he finishes perfecting his engine, he will make the full game since a certain other person *cough* SAM *cough* is taking forever to get his done. Although I do have to say that sam's is an all new original game, not a remake.

Just how would one go about asking a question in the mailing lists? Do you have to subscribe to them first? (I know virtually nothing about them...)
