xLIB xLIB Revolution v1.0 Released
Posted by Michael on 16 October 2005, 13:48 GMT

[Action shot of xLIB xLIB Revolution] Master of BASIC programming Kevin Ouellet has done the impossible again. This time he has created xLIB xLIB Revolution, a clone of Dance Dance Revolution for the 83+. In extremely impressive style, the game allows for background images and animations in addition to running at a decent speed. There is a level editor for creating your own songs. xLIB xLIB Revolution does, as its name indicates, require the flash application xLIB (which is included in the zip file), so you must have at least 16 KB of free archive space.

Once again ti is behind by a few days of other sites in posting news about a new program.

I recall something about a ticalc cd being distributed by ti, or something like that...

Then somebody's mom found one word of objectionable material, fussed, and they recalled the whole disc.

Somebody who had a hand in that or was around at the time should enlighen all us n00bs. (MV, Magnus, Joey, i'm looking at you.)

I actually have one of those disks. They were supposed to be included with Ti-GraphLink cables and Ti-calculators, but I got mine in the mail when I contributed to the disk.

I dont know what the questionable content was, but yeah that pretty much killed off the disk project. The way it worked was you had to approve any program you wanted on the disk, and it had strict rules as to what was allowed. (no Porn or questionable Content, no Copyright violations, ETC) Some people just basicially approved everything they made, and ticalc.org apparently missed something that violated the rules and ticked off some mom. From there Ti basicially pulled all the disks and never reissued it or a clean copy. Ticalc.org also added the "Report Innapropriate Files" section to there site around the same time.

I have an idea - make an image and post it to ticalc.org in one of the computer sections. That way, we could all check it out.

Yes, could you make an .iso file and put it up here? I would really like to check out what the disc is like? What exactly does it have?

I'm not too sure ticalc.org would like that idea too much, and since it's their call to release it, you're probably not going to see me giving it out anytime soon.

Also, as it stands, with 7z compression at maximum it's over 90mb. I don't have the webspace or bandwidth to host the file anyway.

Then use BitTorrent and host the torrent at www.thepiratebay.org or www.torrenttracker.com or www.torrentspy.com or www.mininova.org - BitTorrent is an excellent way to host files, close to zero bandwidth is used. :-)

Why is it necessary to bring up the BASIC/ASM language argument? It is not relevant here.

On the other hand, give the author some credit. This is a pretty amazing game for BASIC -- utilizing the xLIB ASM library.

To all TI-83/84 BASIC coders out there... This is a great proof of concept of what BASIC combined with xLIB is capable of.

Way to go Kevin!

Yeah, this is the best BASIC game I've seen so far, and one of the best games (BASIC and asm) I've played.

"Assembly shall defeat basic"?? As future future tense not past.*rolls eyes*

If you actually played the game it's quite good for any standard. Though I thought xlib was only in beta.

see link...you were saying?. Most of the <b>ASM</b> games here have worse graphic than these.....and run at the same speed.....in case you haven't noticed, pure Basic produces some incredible games....and after the UTI contest, i think the skill of basic programming will reach new heights. The problem with Asm, is no one ever finishes projects. In the future dont start pointless debates, or post flame bait.

On the other hand, not requiring huge amounts of memory is nice (16k+program?). And you all forget to note that all the nice pretty graphics are done by ASM. That having been said, congrats Kevin!

Please please please don't argue and flame me etc etc?

Argue, argue, flame, flame.

But seriously, my current project uses ASM libraries.

I mentioned that Kevin used the xLIB ASM library.

However, you are correct, I did not specifically state he used xLIB for drawing graphics. Good catch!

Excuse my noobness, I have only recently been introduced to the Ti community. What is XLib?

I am probably not the best person to ask... But, it is a library coded in ASM that adds alot of graphics funtionality to the TI-83/84 BASIC language.

Check it out at the link provided.

Don't forget to thank Patrick Prendergast for his efforts.

I take it you didn't read the page very closely or look at the links. See how many of the games on the page say they require Asm libs....
