That looks cool to show off :D, and nice prank.

Now that you have chosen to do it with Fortnite, though, does it mean that you're playing too?
I played t for a while, but I haven't for about 5 months. Probably won't go back.

That victorious head bob at the end cracked me up so hard, Alex. Awesome work bro! Epic should hire you on the spot.
Thanks xD HP actually sent me an email in response to that video. Not much came of it though.

A 2D Fortnite for calcs would have been cool ^^
I need to look into it but my friend said that the Prime can now connect via IP addresses, if so they might have added ad function to send messages via programs; effectively making the first wireless calculator games possible.

I'm sure someone could pull it off, see surviv.io - it's actually quite fun! Imagine if you could play it on b&w calcs on Calcnet...
The multiplayer part would be the hardest, the Prime would have enough power to run the game for sure.

This is really cool. I'm not really a HP person and I'm really not a Fortnite person, but I do support putting popular games on graphing calculators :)

Thanks, took my about 12 hours to do the whole thing, pheew... that was a long time. (of course not a straight shot)

Great job!

Hey, not bad.
Thanks :)

It took a while to get it within the memory limits of the prime, my reward is when I trick ignorant people at school with it ;)

I play BR, the IGN is Logan Paul (I'm not a fan, I just like people seeing "you were eliminated by Logan Paul")

The 'o' is a special character though :/

I have the same alarm clock as that guy in the article.
Lol, same here

No, I wish I finished that editor. It is possible but really time consuming

Yep, but you should see my code for a project I am working on, literally over 95% of the lines have comments, all of it hand typed on the prime (I even made a program to edit sprites on the calculator so I wouldn't use a PC) as a little challenge xD.

Hmmmmm, this makes me think back to good old JarvAXE, anyone remember him? Or the even the older J.A.R.V.I.S. in Ti-BASIC xD
10
Yeah, if I were ever to release a world engine I would just write a new one because the ones I made for MinePrime would just be to specialized for it's use case it wouldn't work to well with any other implementation I don't think :/

Awww  :-\
In fact I am sad about this... even tho I didn't have the necessary hardware I still followed this project and really liked it <3

I can't say I support ur decision but I understand it...  not having worked in a project for a longer time, having forgot how the code works, that's one of the worst things to happen :'(

I really hope someone is willing to continue it for you <3
Thanks, I am sad to. I had tried to work on it the past few weeks but I just made the programs hat I was having worse xD. If I ever come back to it I will do a lot better because I have had tons of experience working with HP Apps now (I am currently working on a project with them) and I would be able to make it pretty well, I just don't have time and if I did I would spend it on other things.

Well, I am sad to say but this project is officially dead for the foreseeable future :/ if anyone wants to continue it I will be glad to PM them the source but it has been so long since I have worked on it I have no idea what everything does (I do have lots of comments though).

On a side note it looks like the aforementioned competition is dead as well :(.

All in all I recoded the entire game 4 times, the reason I am not continuing this is because I would have to recode it a 5th time xD. So obviously I don't want to do that...

sorry for any disappointment (if any :P)

well, if I remember right, I used two matrices and had the first be the base (1st generation), and I iterated through the first matrix, checking every index with the 8 adjacent squares and determining if it should live or die and then storing that to the same index on the 2nd matrix, alive or dead (1 or 0), and then finally setting the 1st matrix equal to the 2nd, clearing the second and repeat. I haven't come up with anything as simple that works faster (I haven't given it much though tbh tho) so I think you would have to make a pretty complicated algorithm to accomplish it faster, I will give it some thought though ;). Good luck!

Nice work! I made a Conway game for the prime but it was slow due to a bad algorithm xD
