TI-GCC Library v2.1, AUTOmatix 3D v0.01, Wormy v1.0
Posted by Nick on 27 June 2000, 22:33 GMT

Yesterday found me with innumerable updates and minor tweakings at some other site.
Because of this, here's some belated news!

Sebastian Reichelt, frequently known for correcting the poor German skills of the ticalc.org staff (despite the fact that Chris majors in German), has released a Lotus Turbo Challenge-esque program for the 89 called AUTOmatix 3D v0.01. For those who are concerned, source is also available. This program is in demo form right now, but it should be completed soon. It looks very good, even for being in an early stage.

TI-GCC Library v2.1 by Zeljko Juric is now out. Once again, I got the customary 10 page email from him (hint hint, programmers *g*) outlining, in detail, all the new features. Some of the more notable ones include nine major bugfixes, enhancements to the documentation, and a few minor tweaks to the compiler.

Sam Heald ported Wormy v1.0 to the 82. This is a port of Matt Shepcar's incredibly 31337 game. Aside from the *ahem* cryptic readme, this game is really good. Check it, yo!

Your best is 562? I got 560 on my third game!

Jeah, I got 560, too (20th game, maybe). I wonder if you can go faster than that. I always suck at games, even my own ones. :-) Don't think you can beat me at Lotus III for the PC, though. BTW: That game came out 10 years ago, and I still consider it one of the best games out there. Amazing, isn't it?

Oops, I can't even spell "Yeah" right. It's hard to type right now, because I had to move my monitor right next to the keyboard. I can't even see what I'm typing.

Well, think of it this way - in Spanish and many other languages I'm sure you're familiar with, the 'j' is pronounced 'y', so technically you didn't do anything wrong... :-)

Yeah, but it's close enough, right?

Or at least it's better than 'jeah'... ;-)

I specially love F-zero(super nintendo), I think it's one of the best games, released 10 years ago too. I think it's more easy/probable to make an F-zero-like game for TI than lotus. What do you think ?

What?!? Punchout was the best game ever made! It game out as an arcade game in the early 80's and it was a smash hit! It has you all beat! But it, Punchout for Nintendo, and SUper Punchout for SNES, are the best games I have ever played.

You are, especially as of late, extremely wrong.
Bubble Bobble was the best game to ever be created.
It's a known scientific fact.

I agree, Chronotrigger is such a good game considering its on an SNES, yet still tops all the competition. If any of you disagree, you probably havent played it.

Go CHRONOTRIGGER!

You totally neglected to mention Final Fantasy III. Not only is it the best RPG there ever was, or ever will be, but it is the best game total. The soundtrack was incredible, particularly during the Opera House, and the characters were very detailed. Tell me you didn't feel for Celes when she lept off the cliff. Setzer and Daryl were also very interesting characters. The story, the music, the characters, even the graphics. All of these lead to final fantasy III being the best game ever created.

The soundtrack, you mean the SPC files, that are the dumps of the actual SPC700 music processer of the SNES.

They are the EXTREME fidelety music that is EXACTLY the music of the SNES. Goto www.zophar.net, look for SPC and SPC players. There is a plugin for Winamp(notebly the best MP3 player in the US) that allows it to play SPC's. SPC is WAY BETTER than MIDI, which sometimes dosen't sound a bit like the orig.

BTW, i'm trying to make a SPC player for the 89, the SPC files are only 64k always, so It might be possible to make a player. If it is at all possible with the hardware of a calc.

I cur( you know concur, well this is the opposite)

Total Annihilation is the best game ever created. It is way better than Starcraft, Red Aleart, the old CC, Tiberiean Sun, and Warcraft, Warhammer 5000, I could go on. Just give it a try, it is THE BEST game ever created.

No no no no no no no! SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 for Sega Genesis!!!!!!!!!! Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles were also pretty kewl. And they almost matched Sonic 2 on NEOGEO Pocket Color with their own copy of Sonic.

Well you could use kgen (windows, right?) as the emulator and I do happen to have sonic crackers (sonic 4 beta), sonic 1, sonic 2 beta, sonic 2, sonic 3, sonic and knuckles, sonic spinball, and sonic 3D, all in zip files zipped into a tidy 14.6 meg file that contains all my roms from my rom collecting and emulating days, of which the sonic games are pretty small. =-) If you wanted I could email, aim, or irc any of the files to you. Some people think that you should delete them within 24 hours but since sega doesn't produce genesis (and it's for an educational purpose, right?), I'd say it's fair use.

I don't know, because I don't know F-Zero. I searched in the internet and found a demo, but I couldn't play it. Looked pretty professional, though, unlike Lotus. And I think the simplicity of Lotus is what makes it so addictive. Or maybe it's the two player mode with split screen. I should definitely have that in AUTOmatix, with two people on one calc, or through link play.

F-zero demo? you will never find a demo of that. The easiest way to play F-zero is to download the Super Nintendo emulator(Zsnes), and the F-zero Rom. I think F-zero is as simple as lotus, but the best thing is the "3D effect" of the track(a kind of a special feature made by nintendo).

I woudent' say THE super nintendo emulator, ZSNES. Although it is THE BEst, it is not the only. There is also Snes9x, which some people debate to be the best, although it is slower than Zsnes.

There are many more SNES emulaters, such as
Esnes
NLksnes
SNES96
SNES97
just to name a few

Emulaters can be found throught the web, a good ROM site is www.oneminuteleft.com

Those emulators listed are DEAD!

ESNES and NlkSnes got mixed into NlkE (or something like that)
SNES96 and SNES97 are merely older versions of Snes9X
You forgot SNEMul, the Nesticle of SNES emulators.

ZSnes is the fastest and best, unless you don't have a PC.

I only recomended Zsnes. It's obvious is not the only one!!! but it works, very well. Last versions are better than snes9x.

I know of some french site called lambda technology, and they claim to be making something called Formula 0,
a mixture of F-Zero and Formula 1. It looks cool, much better than automatrix, i do understand that automatrix is still a demo. Anyways, it's cool. TI-FR constantly mentions it.

F-ZeroX is the Best! sure, I like the classic too, but nothing can compete with the sense of speed that X makes WHILE having 29 other racers to compete against!

Still, I'm a racing-game addict at heart.

ok...4 words: Out-Run, Rad-Racer...some might say thats 2 words but sitll, those are both much better than F-Zero, and I have F-Zero and i think its one of the best games out there, but Rad-Racer's 3d effects (push select and put on some glasses) and OutRun's classic arcade feel are MUCH much better than F-Zero's nice jumps and powerup areas....

I dont know about him, but I am using unios. I have rom 2.04. Every one of my progs and games work, except for AUTOmatix 3D. It shows the road and then freezes. By the way, I didn't upgrade to 2.04 by accident. It is much better than the others, especially 1.0x.

If all else fails, read the doc. :-) 2nd+Esc exits. I might change that back to just Esc in the next version, now that I know why the program always quit unexpectedly.
