Yeah, I was modeling after my own Air Hockey table but you are right the actual field should be white.

Also there are rings that appear on all four corners but for some reason they don't show up on the emulated version :(

DJ Omnimaga

Aah that is strange. I wonder if it could be an issue with the program code? Sometimes, when the code has errors, the emulator behaves differently than the calc and has much higher chances to crash. By the way, backup often when developing HP Prime games. Sometimes, the emulator resets itself.

alexgt

Well since I am at school all the time I code on my IRL calc and record my emulator so that is not a big deal.

And the few time it has crashed I haven't lost anything so but I use the versions I upload here as a buffer :)

DJ Omnimaga

In my case the issue was that in some rare cases, usually when it started crashing more often than usual, a new folder would be created on my computer and in even rarer cases, the crash would actually trigger the reset option.

DJ Omnimaga

Yes. I never had a data wipe on the real calc. Even on the emulator it's pretty rare, though. Usually it's just the folder location being suddenly changed so I can easily copy/paste the files. But yeah I did have data loss before.

Snektron

A crash triggering the reset option... that must have been one heavy crash o.o

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah, the emu was really unstable when your code had errors. Unlike the calc, this is what you sometimes got instead of error check.

alexgt

Yeah the most minor IRL calc crash I have had is when a I stopped a program and it turned off all I had to do was turn it  on again, the most major one reset the calc but there were no data losses only a line in a program that I was working on was missing.

Also watch out HP Prime users be careful with the notes section it is very unstable I use it with school and that crashes the most so what I do is use features like font color and font size sparingly other wise it goes :blah:

DJ Omnimaga

Ouch! Sounds like you should report the bug to Tim Wessman.

alexgt

Where could I contact him? And it is mostly I found when you go to the font color menu, change color, then go to the back round color and it doesn't like it very much :-(

DJ Omnimaga

He has an account on Omnimaga, CodeWalrus and HP Museum, but due to spambot protection he probably cannot reply to private messages on CodeWalrus, since it requires 5 posts to do it.

alexgt

I am going to remake the Air hockey game with no flickering and stuff then post it on the downloads section :)

DJ Omnimaga

Cool. You should make graphics like ice hockey

CKH4

I look forward to playing this if I get a prime.
