Mr. Bob's Bad Day (Out?) A Text RPG
« on: March 08, 2016, 02:46:43 am »
So, I've started another project with my overnight self-taught knowledge of TI-BASIC. This time, I've started my first game, inspired by Jeremy Burke's Mr. Bill's Bad Day Out. This story is about his equally unlucky brother, Bob, but with some differences. There will be at least 2 clear ways to win, not just one way to not die, and this is also made "Adventur style."

Screenshots from TI Connect CE:



So far, I've done little, but here's a small demo! I'm sure it's bug free, apart from the missing Lbl instructions, and could use optimization.
It is my second from-scratch TI-BASIC program ever, after all.
Here it is!

So will this be kinda like those Myst games where you search stuff but in text form, or will it be like JRPGs where you battle monsters and gain experience? It seems like a good start to get into calculator game development, and I'm glad you finally did it. :3=

I don't know what you mean on that first reference, but it's no JRPG. It's more like the ez80 CE game on Cemetech called "Adventur." Or like the original.

I'm glad I did this too! It feels exhilarating to create something from nothing like that. Have you seen my other creation, GraphSet CE?

Great job getting something going! It does feel great :)

Also, shouldn't this be in the showcase subforum?

So....anyone going to look for issues/optimizations?
I don't know these myself, but I guess I could do what I did yesterday:
Use Celsium to unlock all the basic programs on my calculator and stare at them in the editor....

I'd appreciate that.  Thank you. :)
I might also put this up on Cemetech and Omnimaga.

If you post the code, it will help people to optimize more often, as they don't have to load the program into their calc or TokenIDE. And some people may he ontir phones.

Do you mean a sprite? You can't currently do that, as xLIBC is not yet ported, but I wouldn't suggest trying to do that right away.

No, just a basic  :P, but with XX eyes. Can you do that without xLIB?

I'll take a look later. Also for now you can use CE Textlib to draw rectangles and color text. ASCII art could be used for graphics. Technically you can also use actual sprites on the CE with CE Textlib but the game will have a resolution of 26*10 instead of 160*120 O.O

I think I'd want to finish the actual game first.
That reminds me:
UPDATE:
I added a bunch of stuff.
Please point out optimizations and other stuff I could add!

Re: Mr. Bob's Bad Day (Out?) A Text RPG

Yeah it might be better to wait a bit before optimizing, unless there are things you don't plan to change at all later.

There is something, however, that you could do, to save a few extra bytes: If, for example, the game text has the word Pause, or the word Then and they start with a capital letter, then you could use the Pause or Then command instead of writing them letter by letter. However, if the user has a language localization app installed, your game text might look funny since the commands would be translated (for example, if you use Ans followed by w, e and r, then if someone has his calc in French, then it would say Repwer instead of Answer in the game. But you are making a menu-based game with only text so it shouldn't cause any other problems.


Also I find it weird that almost every single menu-based calculator game use Bob as the main character game. :P
