TI-BASIC 3D
« on: May 01, 2012, 12:58:37 pm »
Hi again. I was just wondering if anyone knew any ways to make a BASIC game look 3d but also be fast? I also don't want to have to get into trigonometry because that's hard and above my math skills. anyone know how?

Well, I don't know any way to do 3D without trigonometry.
It's not simple but very useful, you should read some articles on Wikipedia about it...

And 3D with TI-Basic, even with good optimizations, would be too slow to create game, in my humble opinion.

Maybe use some isometric projection (that's what I've been working on and doesn't need trigonometry) but also this won't run fast in TI-basic. If you want to make something faster or better looking you may have to learn axe or grammer.

I've heard of grammer but never bothered to learn it. Do you know of any good tutorials for grammer. I have the original asm grammer program.

Hmm, the latest update is an app. It was released a few days ago and has a tutorial and documentation included:
http://ourl.ca/15327/298891
The app version is faster and has a lot more functions, too :)

EDIT: By faster, I mean usually around 2 to 3 times faster, and that is even at 6MHz.

can someone give a different link because the filters at my school are blocking the link. Also I can't put it on my calculator because I'm at school and I don't have a computer at where I'm living currently. So if someone can get me an older tutorial or just tell me what commands I can and cant use that would be great.

Hmm, this has the command list here:
http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/441/44104.html
It is called "Commands and Tutorial.pdf".

However, that link only goes to another post on Omnimaga, so I don't know why it would be blocked o_O Maybe try copying it and pasting it as the address instead of clicking it? otherwise, try to navigate to it:
-Go to the Grammer subforum (you can get to it from the homepage)
-Go to "Latest Grammer Updates."
-Go to the last post

I made an example of a rotating cube:
Code: [Select]
ZStandard
"8cos(X→Y₁
"4+3sin(X→Y₂
FnOff
.5π→θ
Ans→N
Repeat getKey
ClrDraw
θ+N→E
Ans+N→F
Ans+N→G
Y₁(θ→A:Y₂(θ→B:Y₁(E→C:Y₂(E→D
Y₁(F→H:Y₂(F→I:Y₁(G→J:Y₂(G→K
Line(A,B,A,-B
Line(C,D,C,-D
Line(H,I,H,-I
Line(J,K,J,-K
Line(A,B,C,D
Line(A,-B,C,-D
Line(C,D,H,I
Line(C,-D,H,-I
Line(H,I,J,K
Line(H,-I,J,-K
Line(J,K,A,B
Line(J,-K,A,-B
θ+.05π→θ
End

As you know, even this simple example requires trigonometry.

Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.
