There are now new games for the CE! :D
They appeared in Cemetech's archive section, and are all non-basic.

Ultimate Pong 2.5- an in-dev awesome and challenging pong game by PT_.

The GIF's a bit glitchy.
Download here: https://www.cemetech.net/programs/index.php?mode=file&id=1425

1010! CE- a pretty cool game ported from iOS. It is similar to Tetris, but with a twist. Made by KingInfinity.


Download here: https://www.cemetech.net/programs/index.php?mode=file&id=1427

CircleIT- a simple yet fun and challenging game. Try to stop the blue circle when it is on the rim of the pink one! Also by KingInfinity.

UPDATE: This version fixes an highscore bug that caused crashes on exit after playing the game.
Download here: https://tiplanet.org/forum/archives_voir.php?id=436568

CE-Flow- in dev. and unreleased. Looks good so far though! The reason there's a different name in each screen is because the title is still being worked on. It's by jonbush.

Does this qualify as a signature? 
The answer is "Sure."

These games look nice! A little tip for the future: make sure to include the program authors' names as well, since it's nice to see your name in an article.

EDIT: oops, I missed that you put them in already :P
Well, I'm bach here too!

Dudeman313

Well, I forgot to put the author's name in for CircleIT, even though it's by the same author as 1010! CE, so thanks anyway. :)

Maybe it could be useful to test the games a little before featuring them with a download link.

CircleIT for example is freezing my calculators 100% of the times when exiting the game after playing.
Happens on both my TI-83 Premium CE and TI-84 Plus CE-T running OS 5.1.5.

So you have to reset, and are loosing all you unarchived data.


That's why I still haven't newsed about it.

Hm that sucks. I recall seeing something about a bug, but I forgot if it was the author who mentioned it and fixed it or if it was you who planned to report the issue to the author. Or could it be that it is missing some dependencies? Since we didn't write the news (Dudeman313 did) should we remove the program or add a warning for the time being @critor ?


EDIT: After reading this post, it looks like this only happens when the calculator is plugged in. Can you reproduce the issue while USB is disconnected?

I've reported the issue. The author replied that he knew about the problem, but that it was rare on his calculator, and that he couldn't reproduce it unfortunately.
But apparently on my two very different CE calculators (83PCE and 84+CE-T)  it's the opposite : it happens every time.

I don't think it's a dependencies problem, as the game is running perfectly fine.
The calcultor just freezes when attempting to return to the OS.


I just wanted people not to loose their important data, like the TI-Boy CE which is currently being developped for example. ;)

Are your calculators commercial ones or prototypes?

Also does it only happen when the USB is connected? Because https://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=245179#245179 mentions that sometimes the game will do that when it is.

Or perhaps it might be a calc model-specific issue that is less frequent on the American model, but that would be strange.

The 83PCE is a DVT level prototype, but unlike EVT level, DVT level hardware is usually almost identical to the commercial one. All other asm programs, apps and OS are running perfectly fine.
The 84+CE-T is a commercial one.

Both... with and without USB. :'(

DJ Omnimaga

Ah ok. I remember that someone once had a TI-84 Plus CSE prototype missing the OS version and it apparently ran much slower than its commercial counterpart. Thanks for the info, though.


And I see. I'll see if I can report the issue to the author, since I don't see it in the topic.

critor

I've reported the issue with a PM last week. :)

DJ Omnimaga

That reminds me, though (on the topic of running ASM games while USB is still connected): I always had the habit to not disconnect/reconnect USB on my calc while ASM games or programs were running since about 8 years or so. I don't know why I got that reflex right from the start, but for some reasons I didn't want to take any chance of bricking my calc or something. When I was making Axe games, I disconnected the calc everytime I wanted to test, in case. Perhaps it's because I am so used to cartridge-based games or console memory cards, which can have issues when removed during saving and stuff. :P

I'd quote all these posts, but I'm now on Opera Mini Mobile, which is on my Nokia E63 :P .

TI-Boy CE is in-dev? Hooray! You have no clue how happy I am to here that. I'll beta test if you need it...

I also realized that sometimes CircleIT crashes on my Walmart-sold 84+ CE, OS 5.0.
I'll just put a warning in, if that's okay. The times this happened to me, my calc was unplugged. I'd try to make a GIF of this with CEmu, but for some reason, @pimath 's compiled builds I found from a link within the Cemetech topic don't work on my W10 Pro x86 Acer laptop. Once I do the ROM dumping  process, I get a message telling me that CEmu has stopped working. :(

The games look fun, but I have no reason to play them in school because I've already taken my math class  :(

Then play them outside of math class :P
