Project M updates?
« on: March 20, 2012, 11:30:37 pm »
Are you still planning to work on it? ??? I was kinda scared on IRC a few weeks ago when you didn't seem to rule out stopping calculator programming completely or quitting a bunch of your projects like this one and F-Zero O.O

Well, I actually said that if I did quit, I would release the source. That is, I won't just disappear without a trace like a lot of people do.

Just for clarification, this is the log you're talking about from March 8:
Quote
[21:09:47] <+OmnomIRC> (O)* DJ_O is curious what is calc84maniac working on lately
[21:10:08] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<DJ_O> and lol on the OS 3.2 vid on Youtube
[21:10:13] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<hellninjas> umm
[21:10:14] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<Juju> lol
[21:10:19] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<hellninjas> how do I RUN a Lua file?
[21:10:21] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<DJ_O> which focuses on the new math stuff
[21:10:31] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<DJ_O> my first comment was the crysis joke
[21:11:39] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<hellninjas> *silence*
[21:11:52] <+OmnomIRC> (O)* hellninjas stands alone at the bar across the street
[21:12:05] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<calc84maniac> unfortunately, I'm not really working on projects at the moment :/
[21:12:17] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<DJ_O> calc84maniac D:
[21:12:23] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<DJ_O> are you planning to resume some tho?
[21:12:38] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<calc84maniac> I suppose
[21:12:52] <+OmnomIRC> (O)* DJ_O hopes calc84maniac isnt done with calcs, f-zero, project M, etc x.x
[21:13:04] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<DJ_O> are you planning to release the source if you decide to drop them?
[21:13:22] <+OmnomIRC> (O)<calc84maniac> yeah, I probably would

I wasn't working on projects at that time, but I did work on TI-Boy some since then.

Ah ojk I see now. It was probably because I misinterpreted the last comment due to the "I suppose" part.

I've been wondering for big projects like this...should there be a topic set aside strictly for updates, so we know when a project's being worked on?

As long as the update is cross posted in the main topic too or that the update thread is not locked it's fine, otherwise it kills forum activity (we tried it before)

Calc84Maniac, i would really love to read through your source code some time, especially because i'm working on a somewhat similar project now and you seem to have a much better z80 mind than i do, it'd be really cool to see how you handle things.

Hmm.. sounds very interesting.

I hope you'll post it here when it's in a decent state. ;D

Nice Chickendude, you should keep us updated in a topic when it's ready to showcase :D (since a lot of us don't visit Revsoft, MaxCoderz, yAronet, etc. regulary and might miss out), because I'm really curious how is it :)

Also I would recommend that if Calc84 releases source code that he does it privately to you or other long time members, for security reasons (I heard horror stories about stolen code that got posted publicly attached to a forum post before)

If I got the source it would most likely be just to play it :P
This used to contain a signature.
