Welcome to CodeWalrus: A software development community with a focus on retro-gaming, music and pixel art on various mobile platforms, including graphing calculators, as well as game consoles and PC.

Since October 2014, our active members and staff have released several new games for the Sega Dreamcast, Panasonic 3DO, Atari 2600, TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus CE, TI-Nspire CX, HP Prime, Casio fx-9860G, Android phones and computers. This includes First Fantasy: Mana Force, Sorcery of Uvutu, Reuben Quest: Lost Between Times, Oiram CE (a Super Mario clone), SQRXZ CE, KillMinds, VVSSV, Line++, Lazer 2, GalagACE and Wal-Rush! Various existing games, such as This is the Only Level, Androides, Billybox, Mandragore, Bejeweled, Flappy Bird, Pac-Man and Pac-Attack, were also ported to TI calculators by our users and various retro gaming console emulators (SNES, Turbografx-16, Sega Genesis, Master System, etc) were released for the TI-Nspire CX.

Aside from game development, our participating forum users have released notable tools such as ICE Compiler, Houstontracker 2, CEmu, the C SDK and Libraries for the CE. We also have our share of musicians and pixel artists as well, along with a massive database of MTV Music Generator series songs from the remains of TIMGUL. A lot of new projects are also active in the development section, ranging from new games to programming utilities and 3D engines, so expect new releases at any moment. Make sure to visit the authors' topics to voice your suggestions and encouragements!



We intend to provide a friendly place to discuss your favorite topics, to hang out and to showcase your projects and releases, so hopefully you feel at home here. Registration is free and only takes a few seconds!

Notable Game and Software Releases
OMG! Starcraft is now Free to play! The game came out in 1998 and used to be paid, but just like Starcraft II, they have now made it free (although unlike SCII where the Free version has limited features, this seems to be the full game). So in other words, if you liked SC go download the original game now and maybe we could play some games together at some point like back in the days

In addition to that, the patch (version 1.18) improves Windows 8.1 and 10 compatibility, although I dunno by how much. It also adds a windowed mode and improves various other things.

You need to use "Run as Administrator" to apply the patch.

A 4K remaster is supposed to come out later this year.

Calculators in General
In the near future, Casio will release the Casio fx-CG50, the fx-CG10/20 successor. In France, the calculator will be named the Graph 90+E.

To our surprise, those two new calculators still have backdoors that allow third-party ASM and C add-ins to run on the platform, a big contrast with the locked-down Casio ClassPad II (fx-CP400), soon to be replaced with the fx-CP500. However, just like with the differences between the Casio fx-9860g/II SH3 vs SH4, TI-83 vs TI-83 Plus, TI-84 Plus vs TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition and TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition vs TI-84 Plus CE, it appears that most PRIZM add-ins cannot run properly on the new model. Until now, only three of the original add-ins ran properly (see compatibility list), with the others being riddled with glitches or crashing outright. Parts of the problem is that there was no official SDK for the Casio PRIZM series, so the risk of add-ins using undocumented code or working directly with certain memory addresses was higher, and doing so resulted into said add-ins to be dependent on the hardware they were designed for, not for its successors.

However, thanks to Critor, two games that had smaller issues on the fx-CG50 have been ported and now work properly: Gravity Duck and Cubefield!





As you will notice, there's also a noticeable speed increase. Hopefully other add-ins still have their source code available and can be ported without too much hassle.

Site-related
Hey guys, here on CodeWalrus we always strive to give you the best experience we can on the forums. We heard your complains and suggestions, so the staff team decided to transfer the site to a completely new forum software we wrote. We were working on it a bit in secret since a while now, there's still a few issues we should figure out, but things should work. It's a completely novel way to use the forum, I guess you'll have to get used to it a bit, but I'm pretty sure you'll like it. The change will occur sometime today as most of the server admins will be on, if you don't see it right away there will be a prompt to try the new site out, and the best thing, if you don't like it you can always go back to the previous interface as we know it as both sites will run in parallel.

Just warning you before we put it online, if you have issues with the new thing, you can always complain as usual in the usual section. Otherwise, have fun!

And yeah, I see the date, I assure you it's completely unrelated. You know me, my "april fools" changes always tend to stick, eh MLP Québec, who completely changed URLs and names on a 1st of April? :P

EDIT: Happy April's Fools, of course the site ain't gonna change, but if you liked it, you still can access it from https://codewalr.us/os

Notable Game and Software Releases
WaterMelon has been working on a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive beat-em-up game dubbed Project Y for a while and now it's coming to fruition. There's a countdown timer on the game website in hexadecimal: http://paprium.com/

There isn't much info about the game yet, but the screenshots look amazing as well as the soundtrack so far O.O.



Here is an official video of the release:



Also they say it's the largest Sega Genesis cartridge ever created, in terms of ROM size. I might try to pre-order a copy if my budget allows it. You can pre-order a real Sega Genesis cartridge complete with the box and manual for $70 at https://www.magicalgamefactory.com/en/factory/projecty_2/
