TextEdit v0.4 and Game Genie v1.0
Posted by Nick on 30 October 1999, 21:17 GMT

I think this is the first time in a while that I've seen a lot of great 86 programs come out at once; so I figured I would give two especially good ones their just mention.

TextEditTextEdit v0.4: This program, similar to TxtRider for the 89/92+, lets you create text files for the 86, complete with bold, italic, underline, etc.

Game Genie v1.0 is quite unusual - it lets you edit assembly programs to get extra lives or points. Currently, it comes with ways to modify both Sqrxz and Mario 86 to get ten lives in each, but further support can be created through the development of add-ons.

I would like to cheat, its great to have that feeling in school. One problem, anyone that can help me, the porgram for the game genie sent fine to my calc, but when i tried to send the 2 strings included in the zip, The TI program that sends it says that it is an invalid format, So therefore I cannot cheat. Please fix this, I want to cheat.

This is sooooo Awesome. Whoever made it, add to it. Make it so Mario is invincible and so anything that touches him doesn't hurt him. Except if he falls. Also, in Sqrxz, if you get stuck, you can forfit a life and restart the level. In Mario you have to exit the WHOLE thing and restart it. I wish you would make something that lets you forfit a life and stuff. I have a TON of suggestions. Anybody, if you want my ideas, E-mail me then.

Um...just to clarify, TxtRider isn't an editor. :-)

Wasn't there a program for TI82 called "Game Wizard" for ASH that did something similar?

I can tell you've been away :P They're not deleting any posts, due to some "anarchy trial" stuff they're doing--this will last until Nov. 7.

actually it would be preferable if you keep your mouth shut beacuse if they find this method does not work they will just not let us post at all and now none of us want that do we

also they just might delete your reply anyway you said some things they may find offensive

Hm... small question... just exactly what is it that is necessary about posting? Just wondering. Everybody is saying "it'll be so terrible if they take away the message boards" but... why? Just because you don't like having things taken away?

To many people ( myself included ) these message boards are a form of past time where you can come, chat, and realx and see the stupid remarks made by some poeple. :)

"Some" is much too light a word to be used in this situation.

I personaly enjoy the message boards beacuse they give me a place to talk about and view opinoins on a certain game or subject. And you are correct i wouldnt enjoy them being taken away beacuse i havent done anything to get them taken away. Only some of the posters do stupid things and i am not one of them. Perhaps the trouble makers should be banned from the message boards. It wouldnt be fair to punish everyone.

I know that the ticalc.org people are in between a rock and a hard place in this matter. If they stop us from posting then they would loose many of their hits. If they dont find some way to regulate the boards without punishing everyone some of us may get pissed and go to one of the other ti sites for our news and programs. I myself dont care about you regulating the boards like you used to i saw no real probs like that but i wasnt really paying attention to it. There may have been some problems that i didnt see or wasnt aware of but if your post got deleted im willing to bet that their was a good reason for the ticalc people to do it. Im not saying that method was perfect but i cant name one perfect thing in this world if you can email me and tell me about it i would like to know about it.

well theres my ranting and raving longest post from me ever i think but im not sure

ohh i do believe this whole thread is off the topic of a 86 text editor and a 86 game genie under the old system it would have been deleted by now and you wouldnt have to see my bitching..

Oops - my bad! That post was in the TI-83+ SDK thread. I thought it had been in here, and when I didn't see it, I assumed ticalc staff deleted it. Sorry ticalc!

Re: Te** So what, the 86 can do it. Now try doing it on the 85**

Now try to do some of this on the 85, for if ASM wasn't discovered, we'd still be doing BASIC.
Besides, doesn't the 86 have that annoying 10k
program size limit?

I think the 10k limit thing has been bypassed by programmers who split their programs into different files, although I'd not know exactly, since I don't even understand how the asm algorithm works compared to something like the ti-basic or c++ :P

To be exact, the limit on the 86 is $FA70-$D748 = 9000 bytes (I hope some 86 programmers are reading this). The general method to get around it is to have one program that goes into that space, up to 9000 bytes, and another that goes onto RAM page 1, which can be an additional ~15kb. This is the method quest III uses, for example (and nearly uses all available space...)
