It would be amazing if someone could port Elite to the ti-8*Plus systems,
but I can't imagine it running faster than a few frames per second.
Elite? what's that? Can you give a link?
I *may* be interested

What's my calc's name? Convert $37 to decimal. Look up that element in the periodic table. Then take the abbreviation of that element and you have it!

Oh boy, it's just about the greatest space game ever!

The bulk of the game is shooting other ships, arcade-style.
There's docking into space stations.
And space trading.

Haha, "a few" frames per seconds is pretty good for TI84s xD

I would love to try and recreate Robot Odyssey (DOS) for the TI-8*Plus calculators,
but you'll have to wait until I gain more experience in assembly  ;^)

Summary of game: You control robots by soldering components together. There's a whole ton of logic gates at your disposal, and maze-like areas that you'll have to traverse.

By the way, if you are morecomfortable with Basic style, you should check out Axe Parser and Grammer languages as well. They can achieve good speed too.

I downloaded the axe parser and I'm reading the documentation, and it seems pretty neato.
Speedy programs with the syntax of a high level language?! Sounds near perfect.

I'm a little scared about the files sizes, but I doubt that that will be a major issue.

I will also continue to use ASM as I like to learn :^)
I love programming more than playing video games.

Yeah, file size can be an issue so it's better that you start practicing with small projects.
