WARNING: If you upgrade your TI-83 Premium CE or TI-84 Plus CE to OS 5.5.1 and higher, it removes all compatibility with most games and removes ASM/C programming. You will need a jailbreak tool called ArTIfiCE in order to add ASM/C support back and some games such as First Fantasy and 1000 Bornes also requires ASMHOOK. Downgrading new hardware revisions is impossible and older ones requires a special tool. Likewise, do NOT update your TI-Nspire CX past OS 4.5.0, else using Ndless and ASM/C programs will be impossible.

YEah that's what I meant. When the screen turns white before stuff gets redrawn, that is. Basically you gotta redraw the stuff on the other side of the screen, then once you are ready to display it, the last square to be drawn also updates the LCD. Disregard this if on the real calc there's no flicker, though.

Ybmitted a playable version, now working on the extra points and deflickering.

DJ Omnimaga

Glad to hear. I'll give it a try later to ensure it works.

Unicorn

Great! Hopefully I can get the extra points and subtracting poits done tonight. Oh yeah, and highscores. O.O Almost forgot about that.



??? ??? ??? ??? ???

DJ Omnimaga

By the way, when substracting points, you died if they reached zero, right? Also, how are they represented?

Unicorn

You die when your lifes hit zero. The points, or scores are displayed on the sidebar and on the end screen. The highscore will be the first color you see when you start the game.

DJ Omnimaga

Ok thanks for clarifying. Also nice touch to display the highscore that way :)

Unicorn

Thanks, I'm thinking on the right,a black color to signify quitting, and on the left, the highscore color, with an inverted rectangle that switches between each colro using the arrow keys.



??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Unicorn

Welp, High-scores pretty much done, as soon as I get  the comparison display done when the game ends. Here's a screenie showing that my highscore is less than or equal to five, but greater than zero.



So, flickering, end screen, and maybe score adding and subtracting coming tomorrow.



??? ??? ??? ??? ???

DJ Omnimaga

Nice to see an update. Good luck getting rid of the flickering. :)

Unicorn

Thanks!I actually only got highscores and the end screen working, due to time constantes, but I might be able to get flickering done if I wake up early. Anywyas, submitted most recent version.

Just so you know @Unicorn , the last version you submitted doesn't work properly. Some code was corrupted and replaced with spaces, while in-game you either die instantly after the screen flashed through many colors, or you get an ERR:Syntax. The 1st version worked fine, but I didn't try the 2nd. The issues I ran into were in the 3rd.

Tested on Doors CSE 8.2. Should I downgrade to DCSE 8.1?

Maybe, I'll check it out soon, I just threw that together really quickly. I know the second has problems with highscores.

EDIT: I fixed it, the file didn't send to jstified correctly, so I thought it worked fine. Anyways, I'm sending a fixed version now.

Unicorn

This deserves a double post. I decided not to worry about extra scoring options, and just fixed one square not registering and sent it in. Sorry for all the clogging of your inbox. :P I think I sent in about 6 emails with the game. *.*


So yeah, I'm done.
