Programming Games in Ti-Basic
« on: November 10, 2015, 09:17:41 pm »
When I first started programming it was on a Ti-84+ in Basic. I have come a long way since but I was always looking for a (sudo) complete/understandable tutorial, if this sounds like you this is for you!

Now you are past the first step! I will add on to these quite often until there you are ready to take to the skys with your new found skilz ;)

This is the next step, here we talk about the while loop!

Thanks, I have a friend at school that wants to start with making games in Basic so I told him I would start a tutorial today :)
Also more in-depth tutorials will be a video (like larger game projects)

Keep him interested :P I remember making that Whack A Mole C-project for fx9860 to get a friend into coding - we were only missing a highscore save feature and a kind of menu --> we stopped :P

I hope you update this in the future. It would probably be a bit less clickbait to the eyes of people who are seeking for a full getting started with BASIC game programming tutorial. :P

Since there are already many tutorials out there including one by TI, perhaps that to avoid reinventing the wheel, your tutorial should focus on getting people to learn game-specific tricks more, while encouraging them to check out TI-BD and other tutorials out there for info on commands.

Yeah, I am planning on making one today about loops (SynText has taken a lot of my time) and after that I will start making little game projects.

Oh I see. You really should bump this topic everytime you post a new tutorial and change stuff, though, because I did not notice your edit until recently. >.<

Ah I see now. Glad that they are fixed. I think pics should be uploaded on ourl.ca or img.codewalr.us for posterity.
