THis looks nice Hot Dog. Too bad checkered patterns didn't help the flicker. Hopefully it won't be too much an issue on most calcs.

I thought it was meant to be flickery grayscale? It should look fine on my Nspire though, with its horrible screen response time :P

I don't think it was, but if it doesn't flicker too bad on calc it should be fine. After all, F-Zero 68K flickers on my TI-89 Titanium and most Ndless games did on my TI-Nspire Clickpad and I get used to it after a while.

I think hot_dog got rid of the checkerboard pattern because it produces artifacts when turning. That even happened to me with nZombie, on a real Nspire, you can see the checkered pattern on the walls when turning, even though it has hardware grayscale.

Exactly.  The checkerboard does make the game more flickerless, though it doesn't eliminate flicker...and as you said, kitt3n, weird artifacts appear either while turning or while zooming in/out on a wall.  However, you'll see flickerless unless you see a large area of gray.

By the way, these are not the jail levels.  They're levels for an underground factory.  The jail comes later.

Ah right, kinda like when I tried scrolling in Nemesiat xLIB (it looked awful when scrolling through the tilemap)

Thanks!  Yep, my secret project!  I kept it secret because I started oh so many projects that I never finished.  I have a confident feeling that I will finish this one because it's mostly data based, but I wanted to make sure before I announced it.  As you noticed, I haven't even put it under "Our Projects" yet

I don't know.  I never knew that that particular key did something in the original game.

No screenshots this time, but I fixed the bugs that occur when entering or exiting the game.  I also replaced the gemini menu with an Elimination menu, as well as adding an option to turn the storyline on or off.  (Some people may prefer to avoid cutscenes and such)

Next thing I'll add is secrets, so I'll have a screenshot then :)

Maybe ^ was a cheat code. Wolfenstein 83+ had log, or something, give you all the weps. I found that while trying to find the door-open button (F1)

^ actually quits to the main menu.  It crashed the game beforehand because I hadn't fixed the bug that causes game-quitting to crash. 

Anyways, I might do cheat codes, which would be a fun idea.
