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!

Calculators in General
According to a post on the HP Prime blog, it appears that this is the end of the line for the HP 50g calculator. Should the post reveal to be true, then HP will cease production of the HP 50g this year, to focus on the HP Prime. So after 15 years, the reign of the HP 49/50g series seems to be over.

This could probably have explained why there have been quite a few hot deals on the HP 50g lately, sometimes being offered for as low as $50. In any case, there will most likely be much more. It's a shame that the calculator has not taken off more than it did among developers, though, although it was very popular among engineers. Hopefully HP adds more engineering tool to the HP Prime firmware in the near future as a compromise to this loss.

Well, that was quick. As we said, we had some staff departures today:

- aeTIos lacks the time to do any admining, he therefore resigns;
- Streetwalrus don't have any time either, he takes a hiatus and may come back to the position at a later date.

So we're now in severe understaffing, as a result, we decided to close the site and made a closing post. However, as we decided the fate of the website, we concluded the best course of action would actually to leave it open for as long as I can afford hosting it... So it is my pleasure to welcome you back to CodeWalrus, but it's not without some changes:

- Juju is appointed Supreme Overlord of CodeWalrus (er, wait, that sound's a little scary... Let's just say I'm the head honcho here). I takeover the website and I'll pay for it with my economies and the free credits I have left in my account. If you feel generous enough to help, I take Paypal and credit over here :P

On the goal of the site, CodeWalrus gives programmers, artists, hardware and software hackers and the like a fun hangout to discuss together between geeks of projects in progress or just whatever, not just about TI, but yeah pretty much everything. The same rules applies under what's left of the administration, so nothing illegal, although I advise crossposting your projects on our friends at Omnimaga and Cemetech.

So, welcome back on CodeWalrus!

Notable Game and Software Releases
17 years after Texas Instruments released it, the TI-89 finally got a fully complete Zelda clone, playable from the beginning to the end!  :w00t:


You can download it here: http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/463/46319.html

Only two finished Zelda games exist for the TI-83 Plus series, which are Zelda: The Hero of Hyrule and Dark Link Quest, and they came out in 2004, after many people failed to complete a Zelda project for the TI-83 Plus series. The former uses the ARPGCS engine, is written in French and lacks many elements from Zelda (such as hearts, items, etc), but has very great graphics, Ys-like gameplay and fast speed. The latter was written by me and uses hybrid BASIC language with very old ASM libraries resulting in slowdowns and lower quality graphics, but has most features from older games. This new TI-89 Zelda game is also one of very few 68K game to get released in many years.

We were supposed to announce this last week, but the TI-Connect and Ndless news delayed it, but we are pleased to introduce a new forum feature: Topic tags!

Basically, in your topic title, if you put some text inside brackets ([TI-BASIC], for example), it will now be converted into a color tag that can be clicked. Clicking the tag will allow you to quickly search the forums for similar topics! It also draws attention more so if, for example, your project is for the TI-84 Plus, then putting [TI-84 Plus] in the topic title will attract people seeking for TI-84 Plus projects.

It has some limitations, however: Currently this feature doesn't work in the Recent Posts page and blocks since the mod doesn't take SimplePortal into account. Hopefully one of our tech-savy staff member can help modifying the Recent Post blocks to fix that. It is also currently impossible to sort topics by tag, which is something we would like to implement in the future. But it should make it easier to find certain topics. Thanks to WadaNon for this mod!

In addition to this new feature, the board rules were slightly modified tonight, now including "disruptive behavior" as a disallowed thing in Rule #4. As always, we encourage our users to make CodeWalrus a friendly place to hang out and showcase your creations. :)

Also, the last update is about our staff. Streetwalrus lacks the necessary computer access to fullfill his CodeWalrus duties and to remain active on a regular basis. As a result, his activity will remain sporadic until school vacations.

An extra sub-forum called Safe-haven was also added several days ago, after the off-topic ones. It is restricted to only certain group of users or regular members above a certain post count, though, and is restricted to only certain type of discussions (real-life-related, for example). You can request an invitate by going to Profile->Group Membership then clicking "Request membership" next to the "Safe-haven access" usergroup.

As always, if you have any suggestions, concerns or questions then don't hesitate to post them in the CodeWalrus discussion section! We want to make sure that our members are happy about the website, the team and what we do so let your voice be heard. :)
