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!

If you lived in Canada or in the UK in the 90s with a cable TV subscription, you might have fond memories of the Videoway, a powerful cable TV box that could overlay many useful informations on screen
, be it the TV guide, the weather, lottery numbers, a calculator and even interactive games. One of these games, Temporel Inc., was one of the most popular of the service. It was about a time traveler trying to find his way out of a pyramid in ancient Egypt to get back to his time machine and the playing mechanics were similar to Maniac Mansion.
Unfortunately, Vidéotron closed down the service in Québec in 2006 in favor of Illico, a more powerful cable TV service, with all the Videoway games vanishing with it. However, an user recorded a walkthrough of Temporel Inc. just before the service shut down, allowing him to make a complete remake of the game on PC.
Fast forward a few years later, Collectorvision, which you might know for making good Intellivision homebrew
and having bought the rights to Acclaim's and LJN's brands and logos, has announced a remake of the game, but this time on the NES console with all new, beautiful graphics
Jean-François Dupuis, the founder and project lead of Collectorvision Games, has said Dead Tomb should be done by December, with only a few typos and fixes left and music to add for a release sometime in early 2018.

Although we had a Discord server for a while, it was only linked to our IRC and WalrusIRC chats recently and our Telegram group is no longer in operation. So we invite those who were in the latter group to join us on IRC, WalrusIRC or Discord instead. The IRC info topic was also updated to reflect the changes:
UPDATED on September 18th 2017
#CodeWalrus IRC channel is available on the EFnet IRC network. EFnet is where most TI-related IRC channels (most notably, #Cemetech, #Omnimaga and Ticalc.org's channel #TI) are located, and a list of available servers is available at http://www.efnet.org/?module=servers . The IRC channel is +s (secret) right now, so it won't show up when regular IRC users type /list in their client, but you should be able to join with no problem using your favorite IRC client, IRCCloud or Mibbit. If a server doesn't work for you, try another from the list.
You can also chat from WalrusIRC directly above the forums if you have 5 posts and higher, or from our Discord server at https://discord.gg/0PDECJFM043A0FdD . Regardless of where you chat from, your messages will be automatically relayed between the IRC channel and the site shoutbox.
#CodeWalrus shall be a place to hang out for CodeWalrus forum members. We recommend that people who need calculator, programming or other kind of technical help use the forum, though, in case their query gets missed. More people will benefit that way, since it won't get lost in the logs.
In addition to #CodeWalrus, there are other CW IRC channels, also on EFnet and Discord:
#cw-anime: While our main channel allows anime discussion, it's recommended to use this smaller channel instead when #CodeWalrus is busy with programming discussion.
#cw-craft: CW Minecraft server IRC channel. You can chat with people in-game there or vice-versa.
#cw-spam: Bot-testing channel. This is *not* a flooding channel.
#texttospeech-discord-only: Moonbase alpha style trolling. Use /tts command for text to speech. This channel is only on Discord.
#safe-haven: Discord-only channel for real-time private matters discussion
#staff: Discord-only channel that is only available to CodeWalrus staff.
A voice chat is also available on Discord.

This contest's topic is animation/animating, especially of the 8-bit variety. To be eligible for a prize, you must make a program or create an IRL creation that involves animation/animating, and topic showing your progress, with the "[UCC2]" tag in the title
The contest will end on October 14 at 11:59:59 EDT (hopefully on-time). No late entries will be accepted.
If you choose to make an IRL creation, you might want to create a video describing your project and its features.
If you choose to make a program, for any platform/language, you cannot
release source until after the contest, to avoid plagiarism.
*keep your entry SFW, please*
Note: due to the laws of the universe, it is not possible to contribute an entry if you are dead. Sorry.
You will be judged on these criteria, although your entry can be penalized at the discretion of the judges, to some extent:
- overall project detail and completeness, including functionality and design.
- interaction with other users, including the reception and distribution of feedback.
- overall ingenuity.
- number of walruses involved (just kidding, this will not affect your score)
Contest judges (i.e. me, but you can request to be one if you have over 100 posts, just ask in this thread. Only 2 more judges will be accepted.) are not allowed to participate, and cannot win prizes.
As for prizes, printable walrus "diplomas" will be issued to the top three winners, signed by the contest judges under their usernames. (If you are accepted as a judge, PM me a pic of your signature, signing as your username)
Neither myself; the contest judges; the CodeWalrus site, admins and users; or contest participants are liable for any damage or legal s*** you come up with
The opinions expressed by the judges in the choosing of a winner may not represent the entire views of the CodeWalrus community or admins.
All decisions are final
If you have any questions about this do not be afraid to ask in this thread!

Just a little reminder that your favourite website (I mean, this one right?) exist thanks to donations from our members, and so far it works quite well. We have a bunch of ways you can contribute, namely the ads below the site logo (click on the "your ad here" to, well, put your ad there) or directly on PayPal by clicking on this link
. Or if you're from Québec City, Canada, our record label is also working into releasing DJ Omnimaga's discography to the four Sunrise Records stores of the region! How cool is that?
Goal for this month is about $35 USD, since we have domain name renewals this month too, but if we get more money in an usual month, we might give out fancier contest prizes and also other goodies we might not give you with the usual $15/month operating budget.
So, the more you give out, the more you get back! I hope we'll be a lot to help the

With that lame-duck year at my old work place being almost over, I am announcing that I am returning to staff at 4:45 PM. I will be part of the moderator and forum maintenance group.
We will also have two new staff in the near future.
Since we will have at least one moderator again, we would also like to remind members to not use the forums and chatroom while under the influence of alcohol and drugs or without receiving proper treatment for any disability unless they are 100% guaranteed to remain in full control of themselves . Each user is responsible for what happens with their user account.
