Thank you! =D
The enemy HP thing is how it's supposed to be. =P
You don't always know how much they're hurt exactly... but you can see when they're about to die. ^_~

I'm not sure why the levels happened when saved... if you pressed 'Cheat' then it should happen (which is probably what you did at first).

I have an idea fo the saving thing... never thought about it til now.

Read the readme a bit more. It explains a bit of what you brought up and will help out. ^_~

That's what I thought, Omni.

Anywho, the demo is now up on the first post.

It's my first time with this... so tell me if I messed up with the files... ^_^;

(Note: Was wrong about size... it's 4097 + 5115 + 883 + 767x2. The 767x2 is archived and unarchived in the program though. [pics])

I'll just throw what I have for now.
I'll probably benefit more when you guys check it out and give me input.

I'm writing up a readme now.
I expect the demo to be up in about 1-20 minutes. =P

It's not so much that, as the fact of how embarrassed I am of my coding... >.<
I haven't been nearly as efficient as I'd have liked and I have that weird personality where I need to be at least near par with peers...

Blah, screw it. I'll just get the groups together and upload it.
It'll be done tonight.

Not entirely true... you can protect basic programs at least.
I'm sure of that.

And that's my intention. ^_~

Ok, having a slight problem... as I'm quite new to the whole 'linking calc to comp' thing...

I need to know how you get it to where you can edit programs on the computer.

The software that came with the cable doesn't help there...

Well, I got my cable today and I plan on releasing a demo sometime tonight. Made a couple of updates...

I'll have a readme up with it as well.

Alright, I'll probably be getting the cable sometime this week.
I'll put up a demo ASAP.

Thanks for the support so early. =D

Unfortunately, I need to acquire the cable from the calc to the computer...
Any ideas where I can find one without rebuying the calulator?

I've been making an RPG for some time now.
I've only recently learned from other people... for about a year, I'd been making one off of pure experimenting. I never had the book or any explanation on coding at all... I just picked it up and went along.

Anyway... to the actual game.
It's (currently) mostly text-based, does use the menu( function (due to memory and time problems mostly) but is otherwise well set-up.


TI 83+ calculator.
That's it.


Programmer - Me

  • 3 programs
  • Total about 5k taken up.
  • Technically about 1.5 years. but only a few months of on/off time between school and home life in reality
Current Features:

  • 3 base classes
  • 3 branches for each base class
  • 12 total classes
  • All classes have either specialized stats or abilities
  • 5 races which mostly determine your starting stats and what classes can be picked.
  • About 20 unique enemies of levels 1-10
  • Enemies include their own stats, name, attack (i.e. It you for damage!), exp/gold drop rates
Battle System
  • Nice, efficient, good-looking battle system completely designed by me.
  • Not too fast, but does work properly for a turn-based system.
  • Accuracy checks, moderated damage, well thought-out formulas (except damage formula which I'll admit to taking and modifying slightly)
  • Working HP and EXP bars showing correctly how close you each are to death and how close you are to next level.
  • Currently only an HP Potion and Town Portal.
  • Work completely.
  • Intuitive buy structure. Can buy one, go back, or buy multiples.
  • Descriptions of every item.
  • Inn, to rest and fully heal, for a price.
  • Character sheet which scrolls through 3 pages displaying stats, personal information, inventory, gold, etc.
  • 6 save slots

Coming Soon!
  • Weapons and armor.
  • Creature drops. (creatures dropping items randomly)
  • Hopefully, a somewhat more graphical interface.
  • 4 new classes (1 base, 3 branches)
  • 1 new race (devoted to the new classes mostly)
  • A bit faster, more efficient re-coding of the battle system.
  • Higher levels enemies.
  • A bit of a story.
  • Quests. (to go with story)
  • Sell feature in shop.
  • More items.

Well, that's all for now.
Any questions? Comments? Anything else?

I plan to stick around and I'm using this game as my intro topic so expect to hear from me more. =P
(BTW, I read the AOCII topic and was glad that someone a bit more skilled started an AOE-based game too... I had one planned but got sidetracked and never got to it much.)
