Some kind of approximation of what Alien Breed would look like on the TI-84+CSE. Unfortunately I doubt it will ever happen due to speed restrictions, scrolling requirements, etc. but it's nice to dream :P

Maybe an HP Prime or TI-Nspire version? :D

This truly looks nice :D
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

A Prime version would be cool. *cough* *cough* JOIN US *cough *cough*

Not really something looking like a game but a topic about that kind of program should be done. I toyed with TCOD and simplex noise. I did a simple perlin-like noise to 8 gray scale + position dithering. Here is the coordonate dithering method. You can change the 4 into any power of 2.

Code: (c) [Select]
int u = x&-(4-(x&1));
int v = y&-(4-(y&1));

EDIT : here is the actual code. you'll need TCOD, which seems to be a pretty nice roguelike-based terminal emulator+utilities library
Spoiler For Spoiler:
Code: [Select]
#include <math.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <libtcod/libtcod.hpp>
#include "OpenSimplexNoise.hpp"

float step(float value, int steps) {
if(steps > 1) --steps;
return (int)(value * steps)/(float)steps;
}

float clamp(float value) {
float result = value < 0 ? 0 : value;
return result > 1 ? 1 : result;
}

int main(int argc, char const *argv[])
{
OpenSimplexNoise noise(0);

TCODConsole::initRoot(80,50,"Open Simplex Noisem",false);

bool done = false;
int t = 0;
float scale = 1./50.;
float timescale = 1./600.;
while(!done) {
TCODConsole::root->clear();

for (int x = 0; x < 80; ++x)
{
for (int y = 0; y < 50; ++y)
{
int u = x&-(4-(y&1));
int v = y&-(4-(x&1));
float value = 0;
value += noise.value(u * scale, v * scale, t*timescale );
// value -= noise.value((j&1) * scale, (i&1) * scale, t/100.)/3;
value = ((value + 1)/2.);
value = clamp(value);
value = step(value, 8);
int pixel = value * 255;
TCODConsole::root->setCharBackground(x, y, TCODColor(pixel, pixel, pixel));
}
}
TCODConsole::flush();
t++;


TCOD_key_t key;
TCODSystem::checkForEvent(TCOD_EVENT_KEY_PRESS,&key,NULL);
switch(key.vk) {
case TCODK_ESCAPE:
done = true;
break;

default:
break;
}
}

return 0;
}

EDIT 2 : Hey, I did a terrain generator!

I found yesterday a rocking tileset. his could be a thing if I could team with someone (and with a good idea).

Soru, you want I to port it to 4G for your projects? ;)

The palette is still Dawnbringer 16/32. This palette rocks and I used it more than once

here's the tileset (but I'll use it, so be warned) : http://opengameart.org/content/micro-tileset-overworld-and-dungeon

That looks really interesting, Eiyeron. I can see the terrain generator map being used for an overview/zoomed out map, and the tileset, or similar for the game environment itself.

I was going to work on portal this afternoon, but I found some old sprites from "Adventure" (a game I was working on but never finished). I started adding/editing sprites and got a bit carried away. Here's where two hours got me:


Mockups:






Unfortunately, I think these mockups are a bit dense to have good performance on calc. I do think that I'll take this project up again at some point, I already have several ideas that will make it more interesting, and easier to make as well.

Great, now when the CE comes out you can try porting it there.
Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

I really like these. ;D Stylistically, it reminds me of NES games, though a bit more colourful.

that is nice. try decreasing the contrast on the background, though. right now it's difficult to tell the sprites apart from the map.

Yes definitely, but other than that I really like the way they turned out. Keep on spriting :D

Nothing else to add other than to say I agree as well. :P
