Jumpman 68K / Jumpman - Resurrected
« on: February 14, 2017, 11:40:41 pm »
So... What ever happened to Jumpman for TI calcs?

Good question. 3 years ago, my hard drive crashed and the data was not recoverable. I had made a recent backup of all my TI projects on a USB thumb drive. Good idea right? Yes... but not if you lose that backup. I frantically searched for it a number of times over several years without success. Very depressing to think you've lost everything.

Well... a few weeks ago that USB stick turned up; and I plan on resurrecting this project.

Other / DS Troubles - HELP
« on: January 05, 2013, 01:12:41 pm »
Has anybody ever had a DS where the battery went bad? I was wondering what the symptoms were as the battery degraded... did it just stop working or were there other symptoms before it finally bit the dust? It acted weird for a while... like game freezing up... now it just doesn't turn on.

I have an unhappy kid right now.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Jumpman is a platform game written by Randy Glover and released by Epyx in 1983. Originally developed for the Atari 400/800, versions were also released for the Commodore 64, Apple II, IBM PC, and Colecovision.

The object of the game is to defuse all bombs in a platform-filled screen. Jumpman defuses a bomb by touching it. According to the story, these are placed on Jupiter by terrorists. Jumpman can climb up and down ladders, and of course jump, and there are two kinds of rope each allowing a single direction of climbing only. Hazards include falling "smart darts" (small bullets that fly slowly across the screen, but when orthogonally lined up with Jumpman, greatly speed up and shoot straight in his direction) and other hazards that are unique to a certain level.

Points are awarded for each bomb defused, with bonus points available for completing a level quickly. Jumpman's game run-speed can be chosen by the player, with faster speeds being riskier but providing greater opportunity to earn bonus points. []

Thanks... and enjoy the game!!

Here is a website that has some great fonts for programmers:

Do you like the looks of Ariel? Do you like fixed width fonts like New Courier? Proggy fonts contain the best elements of both.

Today is Veteran's Day for the United States of America.

Please take some time today and tell an active duty service member or veteran that you thank them for their service.

Are there any active duty service members or veterans at Omnimaga other than myself? If you are, I say "Thank you!" and I salute your service.

News / Pyramid Solitaire for the TI-89
« on: September 19, 2010, 02:55:16 pm »
A new solitaire game for the TI-89...

Pyramid Solitaire

Pairs of cards can be removed if their values total 13. In this game, Jacks are valued at 11, Queens at 12, and Kings at 13. Thus, kings can be removed immediately. Cards must not be covered. Thus when an Ace rests on a Queen, that Queen can not be removed. When going through the draw pile, the cards are drawn one at a time with a selectable number of rotations. To win, remove all the cards from the pyramid pile.
