I've been playing one of my favorite games in the NES library, North & South, which is a Civil War simulation game (done VERY well, actually), and I thought, wouldn't it be cool if it had a TI-84+ port? So I made a mockup, and it actually looks decent.



So, this thread will consist of me planning on how to implement this beast of a game in Axe. :P I will also take any suggestions for how certain parts can be programmed to work.

As of right now, I'm looking for a good way to render the map. Any ideas, anyone? I'm not gonna allocate >6KB for the full picture variables :P

I think that would be feasible. Is the game mostly real-time or turn based? And if it's real-time, then can there be hordes of enemies on the screen? In any case, good luck! That looks good, by the way, and I'm glad you are still coding new stuff :)

Turn based for the map screen, real time for everything else. And it'll get chaotic during the battle minigame :P

Ah I see. If it's in real time during the battle mini-game, then it will definitively be pretty entertaining. :)

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