2,200 Files Get Screenshots!
Posted by Morgan on 27 October 2003, 10:25 GMT

Earlier this summer, an article was posted requesting help with a very large task of screenshotting the archives. Summer has come and gone and with everyone back in school there is very little time to continue with this project. The response I got was overwhelming. It came to the point where I was having trouble organizing it all by myself. I had e-mails from everyone willing to learn, help, and teach me about screenshotting.

I would like to thank everyone that helped, especially Rob van Wijk who contributed 500+ screenshots, and made a severe dent in the TI-83 Assembly directory.

Over 3,500 screenshots were created and added to the site. As of this date the entire 86, 89, 92, and V200 assembly directories are complete. As well, a huge dent has been made in the 82, 83 and 83+ assembly directories. The V200 basic directory and most of the 73, 80, and 81 directories have also been completed.

While this project is far from complete, it won't be worked on for some time, at least not by me. I know how you all will miss the shots :-) Everyone is still welcome to send me pics if they have the time. Instead I am starting something that will benefit y'all even more! I'm in the progress of updating the hardware, basics, and programming pages. I have already fixed many broken links on the hardware pages. Please e-mail me any updates, broken links, and additions that can be added to these pages. Mostly I need help with concepts that would fit on the hardware page. For example, Xpand has recently been added to the expanders page. I know there are many more out there, just need help finding them all.

I know how everyone loves stats, so I kept track of who did what during the screenshot project. If you sent me screenshots, no matter the number, you ended up in this table.

Great work!!!
it makes knowing the files worth downloading a lot easier.
But, how do I go about reporting a screen shot which isn't the program's? I've come across 1, but I don't think that I could find it again.

40 char word?

Sounds cool, and even though I try to include ss's with my progs I bet this will be helpful...
However...
when are the author stats gonna get updated ;_; I'm tired of staying stuck at 96, I wanna know how bad I'm doing now! >_<
and how is a URL in the URL field concidered a 40 character word in the subject, name, or message field?

Well, I just noticed that the news article for the new server no longer has that in the list of things that need to be fixed. guess we'll see at 0:00 GMT today.

Also, we said that the stats had been frozen, thus over the last few weeks nothing has been added to them, with exception to the number of files you might have, pending if you uploaded any new ones. So there should not be any huge difference AFAIK.

Nope, no luck. I've been too busy with other things lately. But I'll get there :-)

I'd like to thank all of the screenshot contributors, and indeed especially Rob van Wijk: goed gedaan! (Sorry for this 'language you wouldn't hear on U.S. network television' :D)
I'd also give applaus to Morgan who seems to put ALL his time on ticalc. While I can't even finish my paratrooper game for the ti83 in a month or so :) Again: GREAT JOB and THANX!

Graag gedaan!
(For the non-Dutch, that's "You're welcome!")
BTW, Sigma, do all Canadians speak Dutch? :)

There's still a lot of files without screenshots,
so if there are more volunteers out there.......

Greg Meena sent me some pics yesterday...I aded his stats to the table.

Yes, if you are willing to make some pics or me, please do. There is no kind of contract or anything.

If the best two languages gave us was internal terrorism, think of the turmoil a third would cause :). Actually, I decided on a whim I would try to learn it.

I don't know...The cool thing about his screenshot was that it was in essence a trailer to his game, and didn't show you exactly what the program was. More like a teaser actually. Like a movie trailer, plus when you add the sound to it in the flash version and that just secures the deal!! :-)

Oh yeah, I happened to see that yesterday when I was browsing through the files, and I thought the screenshot was pretty cool, also.

Nice program, there! :) Is it complete?

It's "complete" in the sense that I released it three years ago and have no intention of working on it again (or any other calculator assembly projects).

The engine is basically complete and there are a lot of very nice graphics included. There are also some docs explaining how maps and such work. Anyone who has some game design skills is welcome to make it into a finished game.

Well, it does look nice. The bad thing about huge projects like that is that their usually never finished, but it looks like you got all the main things for the game, so if somebody else did want to finish it, it wouldn't be as hard.
