Color Doom clone for CFX-9970G/Graph 80
« on: August 19, 2012, 05:43:43 pm »
Has anybody ever tried this? O.O

http://phpmouss.free.fr/wordpress/?p=146



It dates back from over a decade ago, but I was wondering if it really ran as fast as in the screenshot or close? Apparently it uses pics so I assume it's not too slow either.

It's just a BASIC Doom clone where you rotate by 90° intervals, but the graphics and game size tells me that more work than usual was put into the game. Unfortunately I cannot test it, because I only got an CFX-9850G, which has half less RAM than the calc it's designed for (CFX-9970G or Graph 80), and trying it on a FX-9860G would be misleading regarding speed, not to mention every color would be black. X.x

Same. The color screen could have led to some amazing looking games, although framerate would need to be artificially dropped so motion blur doesn't ruin it all.

Also that calc is compatible with my CFX-9850G, but I don't know how to get the USB cable that came with my calc to connect to the linking software and the 9850G doesn't have close to enough RAM to fit the game in.

As for 9860G I'm betting the game would look like this with the color commands automatically converted to comments:

I've seen a similar game for the 84+ (but in B&W of course), and it ran at a reasonable speed. And the pics they use always take the same amounth of time to render, doesn't matter how pretty they look.
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- 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 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

Well, the old Casio calcs ran quite slow in BASIC, so I would assume that a Casio clone of such game is much slower (although maybe just at displaying stuff?) than its TI counterpart. Of course, however, if the code is really bad, then that can be problematic, though.

Also, from what I remember, pictures on the CFX calcs don't display instantly, although it's still quite fast. It's certainly faster than on PRIZM, though.

Yeah, PRIZM has the slowest BASIC speed I've ever seen. Even "HELLO WORLD" is slow.

Yeah it's so pathetic x.x. Also I wish there was a CFX-9970G emu out there... maybe I could ask on Planete-Casio if anybody got a Graph 80 or equivalent so he can try the game

Yeah. Maybe someone should try to make a faster version of BASIC for prizm or something... I wonder how PRGM2 is coming on...

Not sure. I haven't seen Purobaz much and he tends to not hang on english TI sites much, especially not here on Omni. No news on Planete-Casio either.

Hmm.. That's too bad, it seemed promising.

On the other hand, now there's lua, although it would be nice to also have something similar to BASIC, like how Axe was back in its early days

Oh, yeah, forgot about that momentarily. That's really exciting too...

Could somebody convert the program to cas format ?
I can test it then in my cfx9850 simulator

I tried to do that using Casemul, but errors occured and the file seemed corrupted. D:

Is there any other alternative to convert those programs to cas? Casiocom only does .fxi and .cat IIRC.
