An epic RPG by Iambian, Zera, and Geekboy1011 has finally hit alpha!
Iambian has been working on and off of the Escheron series for 6+ years now. With many changes and restarts and changes of the engine its core design and base story. Attempted versions have ranged from a full featured grayscale version all the way to what they have now. A full featured black and white version, and yes while that may seem like a step backwards. Zera worked his artistic ability to give you something descriptively ornate anyway with a touch of old style charm.
They are currently looking for alpha testers to help find and hunt down any remaining bugs in the system that they have implemented. The alpha currently features a fully populated and interconnected overworld. Containing 99% of the NPC's, 99% of the chests and an almost feature complete set of maps. It supplies multiple ways of travel, land, sea and air. The ability to swap leaders and have guest NPCs in your party. It also shows off a randomly generated 8 level deep dungeon and some bed bugs?!? Sadly the only major feature missing at this point is a title screen.... Oh wait I meant the battle engine. Well it does not have a title screen either .
If you are interested in testing head over to the thread and put in an application and show some support!

@gameblabla did a fantastic job with this. If you loved the original or haven't played the original, I suggest you check it out. He also made some other nSDL Ports that are equally as awesome.@SpiroH has done an epic job with this. Keep up the good work!@catastropher for this epic library.@Sorunome has done a great job keeping the spirit of the original games alive.@Escheron @Geekboy1011 and @Iambian that is simply outstanding looking. If you are on hcwp, you'll see them working on it, and they are doing a phenomenal job. Can't wait for the release!
@Vogtinator made an emulator for nspire calculators. It is cross-platform (and cross-mobile platform) and is open source. It is 100% awesome.
Edit: Changed X3D image to one for the actual engine. Not one for a completily different thing that just happens to be in the same thread ~ Geekboy
For quite some time it has been possible to run Linux on the Nspire series.
A few days ago it was made possible to run Android 1.6 ("Donut") on your Nspire! You can connect things like keyboard or Wifi sticks via the USB dongle.
Developed by Joshuamax this appears to be a fork off of Kernel 4.x
Of course this project is Open-Source and anyone can feel free to contribute here!

While your at it, check out Code Golf - The Reboot. It's a reboot of an old series of contests done by JWinslow23, now done by pimathbrainiac (and others in subsequent iterations).
Since this restructure started due to a discussion specifically about Code Golf, the new moderators of the new community contests board will be JWinslow23 (who started Code Golf), c4ooo (Who prompted the restart of Code Golf), and pimathbrainiac (Who actually restarted Code Golf). All three of those listed, as well as some of the current active members, will be posting the weekly Code Golf here on Omni. For those who don't have an account here, that's fine! If you want to participate, send your solutions to the week's Code Golf organizer via IRC or another site. If you can't contact them, contact one of those listed in this post, and your solution will be passed along. More information can be found here.
