How did you find Omnimaga?
« on: January 21, 2006, 03:04:00 pm »
Hmm I was wondering since there are lot of new people there how did you discovered Omnimaga website (for example via a website link, a forum, email, etc.)?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Basically it went like this:

I got a TI-84+SE in June for high school.
In July I miraculously found ticalc.org and started the tutorials.
In September I started clicking the links to most sites in the calc-ring.
I found unitedti, which looked pretty good, but didn't join yet for lack of programming skill.
Then November I decided tifreak's RPG starter kit was good enough for me to make a good maze game (since all it told me straight out was map storage).
I joined UTI with the hopes of making a big maze that would revolutionize the calc world. I was like a noob making a guessing game, I thought it would be loved by everyone.
I had found omnimaga before this, but didn't announce my game there (here) because I knew it wasn't an RPG.

Now its been half a year, i'm no better than when I started, and i'm making an RPG to show it!


I found omnimaga through a link.

EDIT: just look at my ego...this isn't a real edit :Pblah.gif
One of these days I'll get a sig I'm really proud of.

Wow, I don't remember exactly how I found the site, but I know it was when you first started Omnimaga... I was lookin for links to add to my site at that time, and your site had next to nothing on it... :Dbiggrin.gif

Hmm.  I don't remember.  I registered a while back, I think I found it off a link from some other site, but I didn't really become active until much later.

Ticalc.org news I believe, when one of Kevin's Reuben RPGs was featured. I remember Omnimaga, not long ago, being an HTML news site. Poor Kevin was so stressed out having to manually update it every single time :Dbiggrin.gif

aaaw yeah that was a pain near the end, if I didnt moved to Invisionfree omnimaga would be defunct right now :(sad.gif, but still, imagine what would be to run Omnimaga alone in it's actual state O_Oshocked2.gif

EDIT for those who found omnimaga after the move to invisionfree this is the last HTML version (IE6 recommended)
http://omnimaga.unitedti.org/index_v3.html
and this is the forum I had back in 2004 (which didnt worked out too well) before affiliating with EPS forums

 Same here.

@Radical Pi:  Don't worry, you'll get better.  The fact that you've actually begun making your games shows that you're a much better programmer than me.

Now that you mention it, I think my game might be really noobish.  But heck, I don't care, it'll definitely help me learn how to do tilemaps on the z80.
