Greetings Omnimaga!
« on: August 18, 2011, 05:02:17 pm »
Hello everyone!

I'm so excited to finally join this forum.
I've always been crazy for Lua, and when I read that TI now allows Lua on the NSpire I knew I just had to join!
I'm a total optimization freak, so in other games I would even go so far as to program time critical subroutines in Lua assembly, something I'm eager to test on the NSpire.

I can't wait to see what great things come of Omnimaga :)

(P.S. How is omnimaga pronounced?)

Hi and welcome. Your peanuts should come soon.

What calcs do you have?
My projects
 - A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ACTIVE (outdated screenshot of asm version)
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)

Tired of seeing dead projects everywere? Consider joining the Project Revival Team

I have an NSpire Touchpad I just updated to OS v3.
I'd like to get the colored one (Prism?) in the future, but that probably won't happen any time soon.

I'm exploring the API right now, looking for something fun to try :D

Welcome to Omnimaga, NecroBumpist. :)

Have some Elmgon peanuts! :D

Click to eat...

(P.S. How is omnimaga pronounced?)
I pronounce it like this:
Om (like OmNom) - knee - ma (like mother) - ga (like gah without the h)

Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful time here.

Welcome on Omnimaga :D

At least Omnimaga is easier to pronounce than Cemetech.

If you're looking for the color nspire, it's the Nspire CX. The prizm is by Casio, and doesn't have lua, but it does have a C compiler.

And Welcome!

Wow.
Lua and Java are both compiled to bytecode and than ran on a VM AFIAK, so are you just working on the VM or are you writing a compiler as well ?

Just the VM. Multiple compilers in addition to multiple VMs would be a nightmare :P

I'm starting a project to port a very popular 86 game to the 84+, but I only started today, so we'll see. Plus I have to learn assembly to do it :P
