Hello-ha!
« on: October 31, 2010, 03:21:59 am »
Well, I decided to say hello, so hello. My skills lie in BASIC and Assembly for the z80 calcs. I do my assembly programming in hex and I have quite a fun time with it. I have made some programs, mostly dealing with aiding BASIC programmers and programs. Some examples include SpriteLib, EnLib, EnPro, and many others. I need to sleep.

Heya and welcome here! Nice to see a new member around! For what calc do you program for? I haven't heard about SpriteLib/EnLib/EnPro yet, are they on ticalc.org? Those might be kinda useful, especially if they are small. I can't wait to see what you have in store :)

Also feel free to look around and ask for help if you need any. :)
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

Thanks! The programs I mentioned are a little large and they are on TI-Calc. I have plenty of smaller ones and I believe that all of my assembly programs have their opcodes included.

Ah ok. I searched for them and found your profile. Quite a lot of programs you made so far O.o. Also the libs seems kinda small for BASIC usage. It can be a good thing in some ways because some programmers may not want people to have to include a massive 16 or even 49 KB Flash APP with their game to play it just because it uses real(20, real(1, or something like that for sprites. The only downside of a program ran with Asm() is that it's considerably slower when a game has many sub-programs (it takes longer to search through the VAT), but for size it can have advantages. If my game The Reign of Legends 3 used xLIB or Celtic III to draw sprites instead of Omnicalc, it would run about 6 times faster, but it would be about 15-16 KB larger.

I personally used to code TI-BASIC for 8.5 years then I switched to Axe Parser language for about 6 months, but I've quit programming in July. I might restart after Christmas, though, and hopefully attempt learning ASM again for a 4th time, to do some stuff to aid myself in BASIC and Axe programming.

Also to follow an old Omnimaga tradition, here are some Omnimaga peanuts! ;D


Also shimbs I know he said z80 but I wanted to know if it was TI-73, 82, 83, 83+/84+, 85 or 86.

No problem. Nowadays most people code for the 83+/84+ when it comes to z80 anyway. However I asked anyway in case because there are still some irreductible 82, 83, 85 and 86 programmers. ;D

Also to the new member: On a side note, checking your account, I noticed you were ThunderBolt. You signed up here in June 2009 and last logged in in March 2010. This would mean you have 2 accounts now. Since you can only have one and since it looks like you are gonna use this new one, I have deleted the old one (I assume it is a lost password+changed e-mail==no recovery situation) . I would PM you about this, but due to spambots, we disabled the PM system for members under 5 posts and the intro section doesn't count towards post count.

EDIT: Added screenshot of previous account in case you forgot :P.

So would I be correct in assuming your ticalc.org account used to be under the name Sven Thomas? I recognized the programs you mentioned you made and remembered looking at them. I was thinking about using some of them but never got around to it and never had the experience required too. Welcome to Omnimaga :)

Welcome!

When I did a lot of hybrid BASIC programming (I mostly do Axe now, but I still dabble) I would use your programs on my TI-83+ BE. They were pretty awesome. I especially loved EnPro.  ;)


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

Thanks all! And yes I did have another account, but  could not remember any of the info. I used to go by Sven Thomas (I wasn't sure how well received I would be), but now I go by Xeda or Zeda. Oh, and I liked the peanuts, they were great :D I am glad that somebody has found some use in some of my programs. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside (am I stuffed animal?). I have a TI-89 Titanium that I program in BASIC on and I have a TI-84+ SE that I program in assembly and BASIC on (though I mostly do Assembly right now).

Ah ok I see. Well, if you ever want your nickname changed back to what you had on your other account, feel free to let me know.

Hi!
Do I detect some Fibonacci?
My website: Currently boring.

Projects:
Axe Interpreter
   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

@DJ Omnimaga: I am satisfied with my current name, but thanks for the offer!
@Michael_Lee: That you did! I have been playing with patterns since before I new they had names and this was the most intriguing one of my youth. It is such a lovely pattern... And now I am working on the Riemann Hypothesis... (Seriously. In my spare time. I am a freshman in college, but I have shown promise... My latest pattern apparently stumbled on the zero's in the Riemann Hypothesis and if I can prove said pattern true, well....)

Ah ok I see :D

We usually don't do much nick changes but they can be done. As long as it's not like one of the forum member when we still used Invisionfree... (he asked about 5 or 6 nick changes in one year). I think on my other SMF board I allowed people to change their nicknames themselves, but I did not do it on Omnimaga because there are too many active members and posts, so it would get confusing ???

As for the math stuff I am not too familiar with it, as I graduated in 2003 and only had basic maths ;D
