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!

Due to some issues with OneAll Social Login that resulted into people being able to circumvent the admin approval mode when registering (and thus, getting forum access instantly), we have currently disabled registrations until we have confirmed that admin approval can still be used without any way it can be circumvented. That said, closed-beta is pretty much closed to registrations by now anyway so it probably doesn't matter at this point.
Whoever created an account that can be identified will not be put back into validating mode, though, and to make it fair to everyone, the person that signed up normally and awaits approval will be approved. So everyone except the unidentified account can still login and post as they see fit.
Domain name ownership was also transfered to Scipi, because of pimath's hiatus and potential issues with his parents.

UPDATED on January 8th 2016
#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 Telegram Messenger. 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:
#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.
#CodeWalrus IRC chatroom now available on three networks!
I am pleased to announce that #CodeWalrus IRC channel is now available on three different IRC networks: EFnet, Freenode and now Omninet! All of them are +s (secret) right now, though, so they won't show up when regular IRC users type /list in their client. Only EFnet and Freenode used to be supported, but since Black Sunday is approaching, OmniNet was finally added.
OmniNet is home of #Omnimaga and various sub-channels, which is also reachable via EFnet. EFnet also hosts #Cemetech and Ticalc.org's channel #ti. Freenode, on the other hand, hosts #KnightOS.
You can also use OmnomIRC, available via the link in the box above, but keep in mind it's not properly configured yet and it lags *a lot* (up to 30 seconds to send text and load the page), which is why it is not available yet on every forum page. Regardless of where you chat from, your messages will be automatically relayed to other networks and OmnomIRC!
A post notifier bot is also being setup as I write this, but it will be disabled until January 1st 2015. The Twitter and Facebook pages will go public a bit earlier, though.
#CodeWalrus shall be a place to hang out for CodeWalrus forum members. We recommend that people who need calculator help use the forum, though, in case their query gets missed. More people will benefit that way (at least when this site goes live).

, this is when, in the calculator community, you will start seeing signs that CodeWalrus exists. Since this week began, some of our staff members have started using the tagline "Remember the day the walrus started to fly..." in their forum signatures on other forums and my Bandcamp music store
was redesigned to fit the site theme. On December 1st 2014
, as forum avatars, it's Walrii that you will start seeing appear:
On December 7th
, it's this signature that will start appearing publicly (on that day, we could almost talk of "Black Sunday
" because of the story behind CodeWalr.us and by then, it will probably become clear to some people that something's up):
Remember, the 24th of October...
Then on December 13th
, the following avatar and signature, where the banner will start leading to the actual splash screen URL, http://codewalr.us/
, will replace the above:
Remember the 24th of October, the day the walrus started to fly...
By December 19th
, people will probably have already figured out, but this is around when we will blatantly start saying that a new calculator forum has been running since October, but that it's invite-only until New Year 2015. The splash screen
will be gone and the site domain name will lead to the forums directly (although still not open to public).
Coming soon: January 1st 2015
Around December 24th
, the following signature will start being used instead, fully unveiling what the site is about:
Coming soon: January 1st 2015
Then on January 1st 2015
, in the form of a programming group (for now), a new era will begin...

EDIT (by DJ):
If you can see this message, this means that you are one of the few members who have been granted access to this website, or you are reading this late and the site already opened before you did so.
), which was founded on October 25th 2014 under the TI-Walrus project name, is a group of game programmers for mobile devices such as TI calculators, hosting a discussion forum dedicated to game programming for mobile platforms ranging from TI/Casio/HP calculators to smartphones, but we also cover computer programming, as well as the art topics related to it (drawing, pixel art, music, animation, etc). Once the website will be finished setting up, we will start inviting our TI, Casio and HP community friends who were interested in joining, one by one, then slowly give indication about the existence of this website. While, for the time being, it is meant to remain a programming team, it might attempt to fill empty gaps in the calculator community if the need arises. If things goes well, the official opening shall be on New Year 2015.
The site is ran on a shoestring budget, though, so while we are open to new features additions, server resources are limited compared to other calculator websites, meaning that we try to keep usage of them to a minimum. The only form of donations we currently accept is by purchasing DJ Omnimaga's music at http://djomnimaga.bandcamp.com
(which will be come the official site store in December). New Year, new beginning, new adventure, where walruses will fly...
If you find any bugs and issues on the website, feel free to report them in the site feedback section of the forums!
