I agree. Fewer good titles of fewer games. It's kinda sad. ticlac.org needs to set up their file thing on the front page again.

So which games were released two years ago? I can't really remember. And I don't think anybody else will, but i think that a lot of people will automatically vote that they are not better because of the 'feeling' going about that the calc comunity is 'dying' when it is not.

Two Years Ago:
That was when Doors was cool, we had Super Mario Quest, Street Fighter, BigDyna, Early versions of Phoenix, etc. I'd say that they had about the same quality games back then as now, but I think that we haven't produced as cool games as back then in the "good ol' times".
<sigh>oh well.

Aye, but don't forget, ION was still the primary shell for the 83+. MirageOS had just made its debut. And that was when the TCPA's site was last updated:)

What preferences/ settings? Save the whales? Mirage O' shit should simply not error. I have given my trust to that operating system one to many times. Every one says " oh, it opens my gamess" , or "oh, im safe with password protection" which I can break into in 30 sec. I will some day replace it.

You delete the appvar right? That's why there is a block memory menu option. Sure, there are other ways, but not without at least clearing the ram. And I believe I said before that MirageOS has never caused a problem on my calc. The only things that did that were the programs I was running out of it. Those programs did the same thing when run out of ION. So, don't blame Mirage or DS, blame yourself for downloading (or making) buggy programs. With your attitude and arrogance, you shouldn't even own a TI calc. Sell it and go buy some crap Casio you jackass.

Listen cocksucker, I had plaeny o ram, 3 real poular games, and no weird programs. The only reason I had the OS was to enable lowercase, and attempt to trust it onece more after it froze in the middle of absofuckenlutlky nothin. It is the worst felling to all of a sudden, see wird chars, then two sec later, bet a blank screen. THe peice o shit is not self explanitory to use. According to the SDK (software devel;opment kit), there are certian keys that naturally get pressed by the ordinary person. Mirage has the most fucked over key system I have ever used. I had to see how the other faggoits who had it used it for dumb funtions like save the whales.
And yes I program Flash

<sarcasm> yeah, taking batteries out is some really great hacking skills </sarcasm>. save the whales doesnt have anything to do with it, i just learned from what i did that made it crash. btw, enough swearing...... and theres plenty of programs out there for lowercase and such, why would you waste 32000 bytes of archive just for lowercase? and if you know how to program flash, why cant you make a program yourself? its not like its hard, all you have to do is set system flags and whatnot. mirageos is the best shell ive had for my calc. so ha

I agree. If you (Pascal) are *sooo* good at writing your own FLASH apps, a lowercase-on/lowercase-off program should not be challenging for you at all.

OKAY LISTEN!

1) MirageOS has some issues, but overall it is much better than Ion
2) If you just want lowercase get CalcSys-It has never crashed as far as I know
3) 'Months of programming!'-so your computer crashed too? didn't you back it up? If you're going to fool around with hex on your calc you should back it up often, and don't be too upset if you lose it

or, if you meant basic...

you guys take this way too seriously! I'm sure old Pascal could do just fine with his knowledge. I think it is funny how everyone on these boards is a hypocrite. I'm not siting specific people, because I too am guilty of it at times. Anyway I say if people want to swear let em swear, doesn't hurt me a bit. What's in a word? A conglomeration of syllables meaningless to the untrained ear. Sometimes a cuss word is the only word that carries the connotation that one is looking for to express themselves. So don't tell people not to swear, it might make you look ignoratnt and judgemental.

I myself believe (I've only just joined today but I've read this entire message string) that MirageOS is a great tool for anybody with a TI-83 Graphing Calculator; and it isn't just its allowing lowercase letters, but also its ability to run ION games... and the "icons" used arn't bad either.

Who gives a damn if the coding was all done by one guy. That has *what* to do with how well the program runs? Anyway, the coding was done by TWO people: Dan Englender and Jason Kovacs.

Detached Solutions, in case you didn't know are probably the only Programming group devoted to developing FLASH applications.

I would be very interested in seeing your FLASH OS/Shell for the 83+. Please remember to submit it to TICalc.org's archives when you are finished making it.

The "save the whales" thing in MirageOS is probably a little humor the two programmers threw in there. There is nothing wrong with that. That does not make MirageOS "gay".

As for you problem with MirageOS, I'm sure the programmers would appriciate it if you could email them giving a full description of your problem.

Do you know how much work goes into even the simplest Asm program? Let me tell you something Mr. Basic-you can go off and make your fancy text RPGs and slow Pong, but the real coding is in assembly

Yes, you are right. ASM is hard to code. I program it. I should have given DS more respect. But It still had no reason to crash. It was configured properly, I had 3 poular games. And the OS crashed when I was programind an ordinary basic game. Weird characters appeared on the screen, then the calc shut of. I have no proof, but I dont know what else would do that except for Mirage. I had no other asm progs on my calc except for Physics, a professional flash application. Mirage is actually pretty cool thinking about it. Except for the fact that this has unfortunatly happen twice. I owe everyone an apology.

ACTUALLY, I HAD A GOOD IDEA! EVERYONE WHO I HAVE PISSED OFF, I WILL GIVE A FREE NETWORK HUB. AS A TOKEN OF MY GRATITUDE!

I wouldn't want one for free. I'm not saying it's a bad product, I just think that you shouldn't give us one because we got into an arguement.

Sucker, I've *never* had it crash mine, *just the PROGRAMS I was running*. And um... weren't you smart enough to keep your programs backed up on your computer? Maybe you don't have a Graph-Link cable. In that case, are you on this site to find schematics on how to build one? Cause I can't think of another reason for you to be on this site.

Sorry, but MirageOS is the best thing to ever hit the TI-83 Plus.

Listen anus lips, anyone has a right to go to this site. I go here to see news, download programs, and argue with shit heads like yourself. Mirage crashed when I was programing a basic game. Weird chars appeared, then all of a sudden, MEM cleared. That has happened twice, deleting my stuff. If I had mirrage on my calculator, It would probably crash more often than I could back up my files. And I had 3 popular error free games. So it should not of crashed. You are like the fuckers at my school. You probably dont even program. So fuck you, fuck you good. And never question my right to this site.

Don't program eh? I got some news for you, I won the TI dev. contest for under 16 z80.

Hmm... why would you need a full size APP to enable lowercase? If you're so good at programming, why couldn't you make a program that was very tiny to do it? It seriously would take less than two minutes for a beginner. And why would you need to run a basic program from Mirage? Can't you do it from the TI-OS? Really, it's just common sense to test programs on an emulator under realistic conditions.

And I wasn't questioning your right to this site, just your reasons for coming here and owning a TI calc. Your current attitude reflects arrogance and stupidity.

Your use of swear words is amusing, it shows lack of the vocabulary needed to convey your message in appropriate, but just as powerful language. I think very little of anyone who happens to use swearing at others as a method to make themselves feel big. I will no longer waste my time arguing with a person of inferior intellect such as yourself.

Oh, and I highly doubt you could compare to Dan Englender.

Maybe you should shut up. All you do is come on to the site and make stupid comments about other people that have absolutely othing to do with you. You obviously know nothing about calculator programming and need to shut up. By the way, this isnt a website review page. So one quick thought, go play in traffic.

No, the way we speak is not a measure of knowledge. When I am angry, my mind kicks into overdrive. When I want to chew someone out, my language gets fancy for some reason. Not an intended act, it just happens.

But Pascal, I appreciate your new kindness and accept all of your apologies, whether or not they were directed to me. Your offer of friendship is also accepted. Hopefully, we can put this crap behind us.

*I found a way this could happen*
If you run an archived basic program with "allow write back in archived programs" disabled, it *could* crash, and delete the program that was run.

THe main problem is that there is nothing more to program! There are at least 5 versions of every type of program. I think networking would be a new demension to the ti 8x sieres. Think about it, a little hub, you plug 3 calcs together and load Counterstrike or GT3, and you can play togerther. or you could do multitasking, multiprocessing, or multifile transfer.

And there are usually 50 or more of each kind of program on PCs, yet most people don't consider programming for them to be 'dead'. Just because something has been done before is no reason not to try to do it again in a different/better way. There are plenty of possiblities to do that left for just about every category of calculator program.

And there are certainly fewer than five complete 3D first-person shooters for the calculators.

What about the external PS/2 keyboard driver deally (way to go Radicalsoft!)? Isn't that outside the calc? And TI already released a networking thing, I believe it's called TI Navigator. Go sell your calc and go away.

Listen, The Ti navigator costs about 2000 dollars or more. It is uncapible of mulit tasking or multiprocessing. It can only give programs to a bunch of calcs at once. My hub, which has been made, costa 5 bucks, can do do more than the navigator, and you can have lotos of people having them. Do yo think you would everown ur own navigator? no, but with my hub, everyone can. Im mass prducing them. Ill send a pic to u through email.
Lets make a deal. Never tell me to sell my calc, and Ill be a hell of lot nicer.

BTW... Mass production? You must have a lot of electronics laying around b/c there are a lot of active electronics in a hub. You have to have one of the following... Hardware to do routing and identification of packets, or you can use software. Either way it will be a long grueling process to work out any bug in bad software or hardware, but the best of wishes for you,a nd that a hub my be produced. <thought> What about wireless multicalc communication like a radio that could join 3 calcs with the capabilities of a hub? </thought>

Actually, it is much simpler than you would think. There is a whole nifty system of calculators not knowing certian pats of information, and knowing other peices. using this bizzar I know this, you know that, and I cannot get info from this calculator because it knows it not, so I will get it from this one... That stuff actally works. Its not that easy but it actally workis. I have yet to improve. My hub will cost about 5 bucks and I have materials

> That is just my point, you see

So you really did mean to say that the unoriginality on calculators is 1/10 as bad as on computers, and that there is no point trying to come up with any improvement to an existing idea? So the TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-86, TI-89, TI-92 Plus, etc. shouldn't have been made since they were no longer new innovative ideas because there was already a calculator (the TI-81) out there?

If so, that would be the first time I really got the point of someone else's post here.

My friend, notice that most games that are masses produced do not do good. For instane Diablo II , it didnot do as good as Diablo I, and half life, did better than unreal tournament (before unreal tournament, there was simple unreal )
Im just saying we have almost done the max with 8mhz and a few K o ram.

The TI-83 Plus has an 8mHz processor, but it runs at 6mHz. And who needs more ram on that calc? That's what MirageOS or ION is for.

I don't use an 83 and have very limited knowledge of it... but don't the programs (regular assembly anyway) have to be sent to the ram first, and then sent to the rom?
Then wouldn't more ram be needed to send larger programs?

With the old graph-link and TI-Connect, there is a way to send files directly to ROM, bypassing the RAM. Also, if you archive each file as you load it, you never have the RAM exhausted, unless the file is *very* large, in which case the first option is the best, and really always is.

I don't think the problem is that we have run out of ideas for games. I think we just need to be more inventive and imaginative. Some games are the same old types(Nibbles, SMB, etc) but some are really cool games. I appalude the people who have creative ideas too, or people who show talent in basic coding.(my language of choice) I personally didn't want to make the same old game either so my next game (shameless plug alert) will be of a new type of RPG, much like Shadowgate of NES fame, called Detention on the 89. I have faith in the TI community to be original.

For the second time there is a big difference betweeen the TI navigator, and my hub.

1.My hub costs 5 dollars, Navigator costs 2000
2.My hub can do multiprocessing, multitasking, and multi file transfer, ti hub can only send programs. The calculators can not comunicate together.
3. Everyone can afford and carry arond one of my hubs, for cool multiplayer games or a big program. No one can afford a TI navigator, and carry it to scool every day.

GET REALISTIC. Those games arent going to happen. These devices feature 96x64 B/W displays.

However, there are plenty of games screaming to get made. There is still alot of creativity in the air, although you might not notice it from this website, that only shows new releases of compilers or new versions of already established games. There are many good programmers who are at work right now.

There are many, many games that have never been made in calculator-form. You just have to look past all the currently popular commercial games, which are mostly clones of two or three really _good_ games (e.g. Doom, Dune 2, etc). But I digress...

No one that I'm aware of has ever tried to do an adventure-type game in the style of Monkey Island. Or hell, someone could try and port the original Zork :) The 86 /still/ doesn't have a decent version of Asteroids... I could go on and on.

Also, no one has made any real programs with the TICT's raycasting engine. I guess the real problem is that it is only a calculator. There is only so much time that can be spent programming it. Like it or not, we live in a money driven society. Even if you wanted to, no one could afford to put enough time into a calc game.

Also, people are talking about computer game. Remember those games are made by large teams that work on them full time, and still may take years to finish.

If you want to create something really special you have four options:
1- Use what is already availibe, and build on it.
2- Have a great new idea, not one thats alredy done
3- Team up! And I mean big teams, not just one or two people (while I agree that one or two people can do great things 6 or 7 can do greater things!) Also, real teams help. Try to have teams of people that can meet with each other and explain what they are doing.(especially you highschool and college types)
4- go into seclusion and spent the next 5 years of your life without food or money.

I think 4 is obviusly the option most of you will choose, so, I'll see you in 5 years!

Two Years Ago: I have a Ti-89 and have had it for two years this Christmas and always used Doors and it worked really well Super Mario Quest was Great now I can't even find it. Early versions of Phoenix were even more fun. I'd say that the the games have gotten more basic the only good games now are Monster and Rodent's Revenge. The games aren't as cool they were in the "good ol' days".
