Znood v0.9 Released
Posted by Eric on 25 May 2001, 06:29 GMT

Znood v0.9 Kirk Meyer, author of a host of popular TI-86 programs, has come out of his relative state of hibernation with his newest creation: Znood v0.9. This is a Snood/Puzzle Bobble/Bust-a-Move type game for the TI-86 that, according to Kirk, has been somewhat of a craze among college campuses lately. Or maybe just his weirdo college campus. In any case, go see what all that boisterousness is about and check out the game. We haven't had many notable programs released for the TI-86 lately, so it's always nice to know that there are indeed calculators out there other than the TI-83+, TI-89, and TI-92+ (*gasp*!).

Great job on Znood! I was introduced to Snood by a friend from UNM, so it was probably popular there too.

This game looks really cool. It is nice to have you back, Kirk. Keep up the good programs.

Will you give Rusty the source to Tisshot to incorporate into the upcomming version of VTI? You said that you might in the read-me?

I sent Rusty the source code quite some time ago, but the hardest part of TISShot was the part that makes it find the emulator and grab the bitmap (which still doesn't seem to work well for everyone unfortunately). If Rusty wants to add animated screenshot support I'm sure he's more than qualified, since he would just have to use an animated GIF library.

Great to have you working again on programs. On the 86, we don't get much attention anymore, and I always liked Snood. Do you do much of the stuff on a Mac? As far as I know, Snood is Mac only, although there are PC clones of it also. Keep up the GREAT work!

I personally don't use Macs. I don't know if the Mac version was made first or not, but Snood is available for PC in Windows and DOS at www.snood.com. The DOS one doesn't come with Gator so if you're going to get it for your PC I recommend the DOS one.

It's just a stupid little program that saves all your passwords for you so you don't have to remember.

It also crashes at irregular intervals.

No, only the TI-83 and TI-92 Plus exist. Bad things hear, bad things hear!

Port to 83
Barnacle Bill  Account Info

The game ZSnood looks pretty cool, and I wish I had it. The only problem is, I have a Ti-83, not a ti-86. I wondering if anyone would port this game to ti-83 (not ti-83 plus) so I can play it. Send me an email or respond if you think that can be done. Thanks alot.
