Hello! It's been a while since this news editor has written anything, and it's time to change that! Without further ado, let's jump right in to it!

First up, for the Casio Prizm, we'll be discussing Prizoop, a Gameboy/Gameboy color emulator. Developed by community newcomer tswilliamson, it claims to run approximately 95% of Gameboy games at 60 frames per second, with "safe" software overclocking enabled. Sound support, ROM compression, and auto frameskip are new additions in the latest update. The project is open source and the code is available on GitHub for anyone who wants to contribute or just view the code. Planned features include savestates, as well as performance and file footprint improvements.

Second, the long awaited CE port of the ever popular TI-83+ series gameboy emulator, TI-Boy, has been announced, although no downloads or source code are available at this time. TI-Boy CE, by long time community member calc84maniac, appears to be coming along nicely, with a 60 fps video showing off a working version of the program. Planned features include automatic colorization of supported Gameboy games, real time clock emulation, and a configuation saving feature.

As always on Omnimaga, we do not recommend nor condone the usage of pirated ROMs. That said, if anyone has any Gameboy or Gameboy Color homebrew that they have written or would like to share, feel free to link it below, so long as the site hosting the homebrew does not host any sort of pirated material.

If you wrote some homebrew for the Gameboy or Gameboy Color, feel free to message me a screenshot or gif of it running on one of the featured emulators, or any emulator running on a calculator. You might be featured on a follow up article!

Thanks for reading! See you in the next article!

Sourcery of Uvutu

Sorcery of Uvutu is an RPG for the TI-84+CSE by @123outerme, written in hybrid-basic! It takes a lot of time and dedication to create an RPG, so congratulations on finishing it!

Service migration by Sorunome
June 28, 2016, 03:06:22 pm

Due to our provider (Ubiquity) being sold to LeaseWeb we have to migrate all of omnimaga and it's services to a new server within about a month and a half. Because of this there might be some short service outages occasionally, we are doing our best to keep these to a minimum. You can find a roadmap below:
Omnimaga Server:
  • IRC services (done!)
  • IRC services website (done!)
  • IRC server (done!)
  • Misc. websites running on the server (done!)
  • OmnomIRC offline for a bit (done!)
  • Omnimaga.org Website (done!)
  • OmnomIRC online again (done!)
  • ourl.ca link shortnet (done!)
  • IRC bot (done!)
  • IRC map (done!)
  • misc. checking if everything is moved (done!)


Eeems.ca Server (also hosts some services):
  • IRC server (done!)
  • IRC Bots (done!)
  • Email Server (done!)
  • Websites (done!)


Not-so urgent things
  • Find new stats for UnrealIRC 4


Update: The old servers are already offline, we are only running on the new servers now. Seems like everything went by smoothly!
Hello everyone! Now that school is out, I once again have time to devote to news articles, and today, I present onto you a new occasional news series: the Calculator Community Music News/Showcase. I figured that it's about time the many talented musicians, composers, and producers in the community get recognized. This first article will cover the musicians themselves, and less so the individual tracks. In the future, individual tracks released between now and the next article will be showcased. So without further blabbing, let's get to the features!

GTemples27
GTemples27 has started composing his own music very recently. Here is his first piece. He has some potential to make some really great music in the future, and I wish him the best of luck doing so.

unknownloner
Our friend unknownloner is a cool dude. He also began producing some pretty cool DnB music around February. While he hasn't posted much of it on the forums recently, it is worth mentioning that his Soundcloud has been pretty active. His stuff is worth the listen.

aeTIos
Guitar player and CodeWalrus admin aeTIos has been experimenting in the last few months with a cover of "Sweet Child of Mine" and a Funk-style track. Check out his Soundcloud to hear what he has put together.

Velocity Games
The guys at Velocity Games have been working on the game "Valhalla" for a while. Recently, they composed a theme song for Valhalla that is worth listening to.

matrefeytontias
Matref has always been a metal man. And dang, he slays at guitar. Just check out his Soundcloud to hear what I'm talking about. He recently got someone else to help with mixing to increase production quality, and I certainly believe this decision is paying out.

JWinslow23
JWinslow is a great singer. He also is a great mathematician. Just check out his latest track about how tau is superior to pi.

utz
This guy just loves making music on everything, especially calculators. His tracks are on his Soundcloud, and they're pretty awesome.

DJ Omnimaga
If I didn't mention DJ, I might as well have not written this article. This CodeWalrus admin has been producing music using MTV Music Generator/Music Generator 2000 for a long time. His BandCamp certainly proves it.

pimathbrainiac
Shameless Self Plug Time!
If you didn't know already, I compose a lot of music myself. My Soundcloud showcases some of my best stuff, as well as some of my older, not-so-best stuff. In some exciting news, one of the pieces I wrote, "Shattered Glass," is currently being considered for publication. Whether or not it will actually be published is yet to be seen, but it is a huge step for me, and I couldn't have gotten as far as I have without the community's support and feedback!

That wraps it up for now! See you in the next (calculator/programming related) article!
