We Need More Quadratic Solvers!!!
« on: March 19, 2011, 06:59:42 pm »
There is a huge problem on ticalc.org: as of now, they have only 144 TI-BASIC quadratic solvers. 
How are we supposed to solve the quadratic formula if we have this small amount?

In the way I see it, a growing calculator community should have thousands of quadratic solvers!

Please submit your quadratic solver before the first of April.  Make sure to make your program unique!

If 100 of us submit a quadratic solver, thousands will be happy.

I still like the tunnel idea in there ;D

One for each user! Everyone is unique; shouldn't quad solvers be as unique as we are? ;D

This topic immediately reminded me of http://s12.invisionfree.com/qslf
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

Clearly combining quadratic solvers and tunnel games is the way to go.

We need to have calcnet-enabled solvers, that can use all the calcs' powers as one! then we can quadratically solve all numbers!

You should improve on the interface. When given two of the coefficients, the program should predict the third coefficient, and solving for it.

I believe the future of quadratic solvers lies in sound and grayscale!

Maybe it can even have a big blue finale! (PLEASE DON'T TRY THIS ONE AT HOME!)

Hmm idea... a number guessing game merged with a tunnel clone and a quadratic solver. Type a formula, then it starts a tunnel game. Guess a number from 1 to 3 and if you guess right it lets you move in a direction and then gives you the quadratic formula answer thing after surviving 10 seconds. O.O

And don't forget the sound and 16-level grayscale.

Well, mine has a cubic solver in it.

Well, that would work, but you have to add Castlevania in it

Castlevania makes ANYTHING and EVERYTHING better :D
