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.

I've played alot of Kevins games over the years, and he gets better every time he comes out with a new one. This game is by far the most advanced BASIC game there ever will be, and beats alot of asm games outta the water. I cant wait to see his next project, and suspect it to be even more advanced.

Way to go, Kevin. The only problem, is that there is no highscoring system, but on a basic game, the scores could easily be deleted or changed. But i'm sure you could figure a way to protect a highscore chart... you always figure that stuff out eventually...

There's no way to protect it from a smart enough person, Basic games can always be unlocked and the source discovered. Using random numbers works well enough for most people.

Yeah, but there could still be a High Score system. I mean, why not just have fun with your friends.

Talk about self-negation.

I just noticed that some guy put up a DDR recreation (i believe his call sign is Xero Xcape), and in his game discription, you could TOTALLY tell that he was bashing Kevin for using asm libraries in his basic game, saying that it isnt really basic. Well, contrary to popular belief, an ASM library is still within the paramiters to defining a BASIC game. If it was an asm prog just for that ONE AND SINGLE GAME,and no other game ever could use it, then no, it would be a hybrid. But listen closly: this xlib is a library that furthurs the capibilities of a calc. Think of it as a patch, that you can turn off and on when ever you want. You can think of the normal things you use every day as a libray that is built into the calc, like 'if-then', cos, sin, ln, e, and everything else, really. They are essentionally 'librarys' that cant be tamperd with. So anyone who thinks of Kevin as a devil for this 'abomination', think otherwise. This is pure basic.

Heya! wazzap? you wanna know something, I am a VERY good friend with Kevin, hell he even thinks FFR is sweet, he's even making an XXR<->FFR song converter! as for bashing, nope. PURE BASIC (as agreed by a whole lotta people on #tcpa) is using no ASM libs and only what the calc provides, even tho Kevin's uses xLIB is isn't PURE... but it is thousands of times better than mine, I couldn't even compare really... but as I said, we chat, and are on some of the best terms with each other (if it wasn't for my scedule I'd still be staff at Omnimaga) so think hard and long about what you said... I only bash those that bash BASIC... and I belive if anyone here could do what Kevin does with BASIC they should be given godlike status...

I read through his file info and reradme and he wasnt bashing me or XXR, he just said his game was pure basic and that FFR had more options, which is true. He even said XXR was better

I would see bashign as "Forget about XXR and download my game, it doesnt use crappy ASM libs" or that classic ASM vs BASIC war. Also the game wouldnt even have made it to ticalc.org archives if he was bashing my game or somethign similar

Oh, I don't know about that. A program called Sundial bashes Timerize 68k pretty heavily in the readme and in the description, and it made it through. The author even emailed me to tell me it exists, and I replied with some counter-arguments and agreements (He says Timerize is a 40KB program. I'm not going to disagree, that is bad.) He never even acknowledged that he recieved my email, or continued the dialogue. But that's just my POed-ness coming out.
