I don't do games, so my choices were kind of limited. :S

I don't own a 68k calc, so mine were even more limited :)

Me too, but I just chose Mario because I know that it would've been my favorite if I had a 68k calc.

And what will happen with it once the author stops maintaining it? Either it will get broken by a TIGCC ABI change, or by a TI hardware and/or software change, and without the source code to recompile it, it will be useless. And so will all the programs which have come to rely on it. Lack of source code is enough of a problem for programs (and the reason why stuff like GhostBuster exists), it's even worse for libraries! Xlib and GraphX are already essentially useless these days.

My guess is because companies, such as Microsoft, will want to sell it or the compiled vesion for profit. As with calculators, it could be because authors want to keep the source, so people won't release a modified version of their source without appropriate credits. In my personal view, everything should be open-source, like Linux.

Download Linux now.

I agree that code should be open source. Then again, I also agree that people should certainly have the freedom to choose whether to release the source. I think that software should be released into the public domain. That way, if some company or individual can make a wonderfully good extension of it & does not want to relase the source, they can. If you say that gives the open-source people a disadvantage, then they should make better stuff in the first place. After all, open source is supposed to result in better software, last I checked. Finally, any code in the public domain remains there permanently - a company could only hide their extensions. Granted, they could copyright the most obvious extension (& thereby hamper easy open-source development), so this path would only be completely viable in the complete absence of software copyrights.

I was thinking in terms of achievement. Developing a semi-port of OpenGL is a huge achievement that pushes the design envelope of the 68K line. My second choice would have been gb68k, for the same reasons. However, ClosedGL has more potential, I think.

Yeah, no good, for the end user, can come out of closedsource software.

Yeah, so, exactly what impact does any of that have on whether or not it's the most impressive program of 2005?

I must agree. M4R10 is like seriously one of the best games ever developed for the 68k platform...

Out of these, I would have to say Kirby. A bomberman clone won last year, and the only game worth playing on the gameboy emulator did not work (despite numerous reports of it working): Pokemon.

If anyone made it work, please tell me.

I made it work. I had to reset all memory first, and then send the files. I have a TI-89 Titanium. Oh, and make sure you're using a valid rom.

I reset all memory, and then sent the DAMN BIG rom to the calculator.
