UPDATE TIME

So, I'm rewriting this from scratch for the PC. When I started working on this game, I was SUPER out of practice with code, so I was doing all sorts of weird things. (like with Greed, instead of doing bound checking, I checked whether or not I got an error when I tried to access part of the board :P)

Anyways, this time, I created a proper color palette! And the code is more sane! etc, etc. Don't worry, though, once the contest is over, I'll be sure to port it to the Nspire.

Well, shoot.

I spilled water on my laptop.

And I didn't make backups of my game.

Woops.

Unicorn

Oh, man that sucks. Is the hard drive retrievable? If your parents have a laptop you could recover your files by switching the hard drives out.

DJ Omnimaga

Ugh that sucks. At least it wasn't yet another laptop failure like many people have, else I would have said use a desktop instead since they break less fast. But yeah next time don't forget to backup >.<

Or maybe you could instead continue the calc version instead of computer, since you probably had a calc copy?

Snektron

It was a PC Game, wasn't it? But maybe you can still save your hdd, try drying it somewhere. Maybe even take it apart and let the pieces individually dry. Watch out you don't kill it though

Don't worry, I am going to get a SATA to USB cable and rescue my data.

Welp, I spilled once orange juice on my first laptop. I think it ran faster after getting spilled with it but I think it was only my mind.

It used to be a TI-Nspire game, but then he moved the project to PC platform instead.

Good luck. I hope it works out. If it doesn't, then do you still plan to redo your entry?

Are you still in the contest @Strontium I hope so :)?!

bb010g

Thanks for telling me about brogue, @Strontium! It looks cool. :) And good luck on getting your data back; we're all rooting for you.

Strontium

I've lost all motivation to rewrite this game for the contest. However, I am working on a new game in the same spirit as this, but it would not be able to qualify for judging because it breaks a lot of rules.

DJ Omnimaga

Sorry to hear. I hope the new game works out better, though, and I hope you stick around on the forums despite the data loss :)

Strontium

Why would I leave? Codewalrus is awesome! :walrii:

DJ Omnimaga

Oh I was saying that since you vanished all of a sudden after the data loss and in the past there are community members who never came back after losing a project O.O
