OK, just compared it with another cx and it has the same amount of storage capacity as my cx. Seems like I just confused something, because I was certain, that it had a storage capacity of 150MB.  ::) I even made nlaunch work again. so there seems to be no problem any longer.

It always said 150MB of storage capacity before, but I just researched on that and the official value is indeed 100MB. I'll have a look at another cx tomorrow. At the moment I'm just confused  :/

Well it was 150MB before it ran out of memory. But if it's in use, how can I free it again? I've already deleted all files with the maintenance menu and it didn't change anything.The 30MB in use is probably the OS, nlaunch and ndless together.

Well, I tried to move some large files and the calc ran out of memory in the file system. After removing some files and rebooting the calc, it said the Total memory capcity was 115.2 MB. Normally the Nspire CX should have a total of 150 MB. Is there any way to get them back? I've already tried deleting all files and reinstalling the OS, with the side effect, that (nlaunch doesn't work any longer for some reason)
At the time this happened I had ndless 3.6 and nlaunch installed. Maybe these have something to do with the reduced memory?
This is what it looks like in the status menu:

Well lobster still haunt the code, but that's not such a big deal >B) .
A much more severe problem is that the file I uploaded yesterday doesn't work ::) . I didn't notice because the error is caused by restoring a saved document. When using the built-in editor of the student software this doesn't matter, so I didn't notice until I tried to run it on my calc and failed. So I upload the working version here

It's finally there: the newest version with coins and upgrades included :D
I finally chose coins, because they are a bit more handy than giant chunky lobsters and small lobsters just don't look good.

New Features:
- Upgrades, which help to get further
- Coins to buy upgrades

- Add some more cars and tracks you can unlock (and of course a feature to unlock cars and tracks  ::) )
- adjust prices, but I'll wait for your feedback first :)

As Mojang published a set of rules concerning the equal status of all players of Minecraft, Microsoft would make many more enemies than they have right now by changing much about this policy. Minecraft has a good equipment to maintain a game as big as Minecraft, which is hard for a small Indie studio. That they invest such a gigantic amount of money suggests that they expect a good deal for themselves, but that doesn't necessarily mean that everything will be changed and Microsoft would squeeze Minecraft tot get as much money as possible before leaving it. A part of the Minecraft community will be gone after this deal, but I hope it opens new opporunities for Minecraft.

The next updates will take some time as I'm on holiday for a week now and school starts after that. But the next planned feature is an upgrade system to improve your car. The upgrades will have to be bought with coins (or nethams) collected ingame. With these it will be possible to get further without getting stuck.

I'm working on upgrades you can buy for coins collected ingame to solve that problem. But that will take some time as I'm on holiday for a week now and school starts after that, so I'll have less time to work on the game. Upgrades are the next feature I want to implement though.

Another Update:

New Features:
- Fancy driver who dangles around in the car and breaks his neck if you are not careful enough :)
- You can restart the game without closing the document
- Better fuel-distribution
- Vehicles can be rotated in mid-air
- Highscores which can be restored after reopening the document (They won't survive the next update though)

After some small adaptations it runs surprisingly fast and smoothly on the handheld. It still runs better in the emulator though :D

Planned for the next updates:
- Menu System
- More Tracks
- More Cars
- Coins (I'm not sure whether they should be coins or something else)
- Some Secret Features :P

A month later doublepost seems okay :)
After being on holiday for two weeks I've been coding again and finished an improved version of HillClimbRacing.
It features:
- dynamic car-loading from tables: this might be interesting for loading addons
- fuel (needs some improvement): You can only race as long as you have enough fuel
- a new and better car
- better vehicle physics (springs are working now)

- post-step callbacks crash the emulator, but works fine on real hardware. Quick workaround provided
- the game runs really slow on the calc and I'm not sure what to do :(

Plans for next versions (unsorted):
- dynamically loadable maps
- control of vehicles in flight
- coins
- better fuel
- menu and GUI
- highscores
- upgrades
- driver who can break his neck

That would of course be pssible, but the script would have to find places that can be avoided by jumping over them. I'll wait for that until I have finished the basic game.
