Thank you kindly, buttsfredkin. :)

Erm..... This may pose a secondary problem, friend?

You are aware that it is against contest rules to provide a download link to your contest entry prior to the deadline of 1 AM on July 16th, correct?

I'll take a look at them in a bit. I've put this game on hiatus a tad because I keep getting thrown into chore work and I'm spending most of my free time building LEGO or other things. ^^;

You can change the window size but that's about it. Pixels will be typical LCD pixels. If you want things to be big and pixelated, you'll have to make your graphics look that way.

I don't really know how to go about doing full screen and graphics upscaling and all that jazz X_x

We'll see when I make more progress, whenever that happens to be. I have a fairly busy schedule at the moment.

You'd have to rewrite it. It's not meant to be a literal port of TI-BASIC to the PC or a TI-BASIC emulator of any kind. Rather, it's more like a wrapper that gives TI-BASIC familiarity while still programming in C.

For instance, you can't do
Code: [Select]
10->Ayou'd have to do:
Code: [Select]
A = 10;like actual C, and conditionals would require the traditional '==' instead of a single '='. Furthermore, you'd still have to do things like declare a main function.

It's kind of like Mio's BasiC++/ATI-BASIC, however there are some slight differences:

1) TIBiC/GO will have xLIB/Celtic-based functions with their own names, so there won't be abuse of real() and whatever it was Celtic used. You'll have stuff like DrawSprite() and TileMap()
2) Color!
3) Sound!
4) Multiple buffers!
5) Rick Astley! -- err... I mean custom fonts!
6) The ability to throw in pure ANSI C whenever and wherever you want!

and much more! :D

Foremost, a short retort to Sircmpwn:

Religion is a necessary aspect of life. For some people, life can be overwhelming with feelings of helplessness, despair, and meaninglessness. "Why do we bother living if we're just going to die? Why be good if everybody else is bad? What can I ever do to fix things as I am only one person?" Things such as these can easily plague the minds of a person without a strong conviction. The concept of God exists to ease these troubled minds. By giving a sense of overarching justice, a spirit that answers your prayers, and a paradise of eternity for those who truly did good in their lives, many humans are now able to motivate themselves to exist and to be upstanding citizens.

Unfortunately, as with anything, over time religion itself has become corrupted. Original meaning is diluted, words are twisted, and radical individuals are born who will come to reinterpret simple metaphors and morals into sick and wrong variants. Some even become so complacent in their religion that everything backfires and they become either lazy or misguided.

So, really, the point I'm trying to make is that religion is a necessary component for people because they're only human. While some people can thrive without a concept of God, not everyone can. So, in my opinion, it's not right to knock religion or attempt to disprove it because in doing so, you would render so many people's lives meaningless. Similarly, Theists shouldn't knock Atheism or attempt to prove God because Atheists don't need God to exist. Whether or not God actually exists is irrelevant. All that matters is the mindset of the individual. It's one thing to share our thoughts, it's another entirely to cram our beliefs down others' throats and attempt to convert them or disparage them.

Theists and Atheists are entirely different species, metaphorically speaking. Perhaps neither will understand the other. So, it's best if we just learn to accept people for how they think so long as they aren't hurting people as part of their ways. It's never right to allow someone to hurt others. But, outside of the scope of violent radicalism, I think my dogmas have some validity to them.

Anyway, moving on, I don't believe the Rapture will ever occur. In my own belief, Genesis wasn't about paradise, it was about choice. Would Humanity remain in Eden and complacently allow God to directly interfere and define them, making them a static and non-developing race; or would Humanity leave Eden and fend for themselves, allowing themselves the ability to grow and evolve while simultaneously risking their own existence? Humanity chose the latter. While God still watches over us and still helps us indirectly (or perhaps directly in certain exclusive circumstances as well), our decision means God won't directly interfere in an extreme manner, aka no Rapture or End of World.

To put it in metaphor, the relationship between us and God as it stands now is akin to the relationship between a parent and post-adolescent child. While the parent still helps out occasionally, the child is free to live on his/her own and make his/her own decisions.

Not sure what to vote...

I am single and of the "forever alone" variety. I'm not exactly aggressive on the dating scene and don't exactly enjoy the company of people IRL, but I still wish I could date and get married. Hnnn X_x

Thanks, Mio! This will most definitely come in handy :)

« on: May 16, 2011, 05:33:06 am »
I'm primarily a web developer (PHP, SQL, ASP) and computer software developer (ANSI C). I typically focus on whatever interests me at the given moment.

Beyond that, I also do a little Verilog HDL work and occasional TI-8x+ (hybrid) BASIC programming. I'm tempted to learn Z80 or 68k Motorola Assembly language for the heck of it. :)

My new avatar is Mizuno from Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto <Star Driver: Radiant Takuto>. It's actually heavily edited because:

1) the original image is very large and shows more of the character
2) there was, apparently, some really innuendo-y Japanese text related to the fact she is eating a sushi roll.

Mizuno is just too adorable to NOT have an avatar of her, though :P

[Partially edited Cemetech crosspost]

I have confirmed that the color argument will be "char hex_color_value" but users can implement predefined color names such as "red" for #FF0000.

Currently, I've decided that users can set the window size to one of two defaults, COMPACT (384x256 pixels) and NORMAL (768x512 pixels), or a custom pixel size. Note that both defaults are multiples of the 96x64 pixel resolution of the TI-8x+ calculators 

I'm throwing away the "larger pixels" idea because this isn't supposed to be a 100% conformist port of TI-BASIC, heheh.

Also, the TI large and small fonts will be replicated and made available as the default fonts. Can't beat the classic fonts ;)

Sorry for horrible quality.

And yes, I do have a Hatsune Miku Append desktop wallpaper, why do you ask? :P
