Ticalc POTY 2014 now underway :D by DJ Omnimaga
December 09, 2014, 01:49:22 pm

Ok so if you haven't checked ticalc.org yet, the 2014 Program of the Year award has begun! Obviously, the first poll is for the TI-83+/84+ category, and assuming POTY works the same way as previous years, the survey will probably run for 1 week. Then the TI-84+CSE category will follow, then the TI-Nspire.

Anyway, here are the TI-83+/84+ programs participating this year:

Axio Man! http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148705.html

Sorry for the down time! by Geekboy1011
December 08, 2014, 05:49:52 pm

Sorry guys the host did a hardware migration over the last 2 days and ran into some technical issues getting the networking backup for the site. All is moved and well for now. There will be another instance of planned downtime in the not so far future when we move hosting platforms with the provider (leaving OnApp) which will hopefully solve these annoyingly repeated downtime instances. A news article will be posted before this happens.

Thanks for bearing through it with us.

Cemetech Contest #13: "Games with Cats & Space" by KermMartian
November 26, 2014, 12:24:58 pm

Another fun-filled Cemetech contest starts today!

This contest's theme has three requirements:
  • You must make a game.
  • It must involve both of the following thematic elements:
    • Cats.
    • Space.
    It will be up to you, the contestant, to determine how best to integrate these two thematic elements within the creative fabric of your game.
  • You must target one of the following hardware/language platform combinations:
    • Any calculators in the TI-83 Plus through TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition line, using BASIC, Hybrid BASIC, ASM, or Axe.
    • TI-Nspire, using Lua only
    • HP Prime, using HPPL
    • Casio Prizm, using C/C++ or BASIC
This contest comes with just under a month of development time: entries will be due by 11:59:59 PM EST, on December 20th.

The usual rules apply:
  • Contestants may not release any code or binaries before the end of the contest, including asking for programming help publicly or privately. Violators will be disqualified. Projects that have already been released in any form (excluding a contest project topic) already are not eligible for the contest.
  • The contest will run until December 20th, 2014, at 11:59:59pm Eastern Time. No late entries will be accepted.
  • All contestants must maintain a topic in the Contests subforum on Cemetech, including a first post that mentions the name, programming language, and topic of the entry.
  • Judging will be performed by the Cemetech administrators (all of whom are disqualified from entering). Results will be posted no later than ten days after the end of the contest.
  • A grading rubric is attached below. Entries will be graded primarily on their entertainment value, polish, and consistency with the given theme ("Space and Cats").
  • Although the focus is on gaming, and we intend this primarily as a fun educational experience for the contestants, we also will be impressed if you manage to sneak some teaching moments into your game.
As with the previous contest, we are very proud to offer two brand-new calculators as prizes. The grand prize winner will be awarded one TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition or one TI-Nspire CX, as chosen by the winner. The second-place winner will receive the remaining calculator. Additional Cemetech swag may be added to the prizes at the Cemetech staff's discretion. All participants will earn Cemetech flair in the form of signature bars and respect. As you can see below, our anonymous donor has generously provided six calculators as contest prizes, so you can rest assured that this winter season will at least one additional contest where you can win these prizes.

So what are you waiting for? Getting coding, make a fun game, challenge yourself to learn something new in the process, and win some calculators!

Two of the remaining four of these six generously-donated calculators will be awarded as prizes, with the remainder awarded for another upcoming contest. A special thanks to our anonymous donor for making this contest possible!
