ROL2 is DJ's Reign of Legends 2 game. Can't answer the other two questions, sorry.

Oh wow don't remind me about my first Garbage Collect message XD

The first time ever, I got scared. The word Garbage seemed like it was to delete the entire calc content. I went to check the manual immediately to make sure. :P

As for drummist calculator, I don't remember if it works anymore. If you can find the old contest poll topic, I think he mentionned about it, but it was several months ago.

ROL2 is The Reign Of Legends 2, one of my old calculator RPG
. The 3rd game was featured on ticalc.org, because it had better graphics, but it's much shorter and less complete than ROL2. Here are ROL2 problems, though:

-It was coded during Summer 2003. Back in 2003, when you did not close quotes and parhentesises, you were considered as a TI-BASIC god. Using special chars not accessible normally in BASIC made you look cool, Text(-1 was nearly a secret and nobody knew that Lbl/Gotos caused memory leaks when exiting a block/loop with them. In other words, back in 2003, such game was considered as coding mastepiece, but since TI|BD opened, it's scary to look at the code. This also means: prepare for some ERR:MEMORYs.
-Back in 2003, Kevtiva shutted down and never uploaded Flash Gordon on ticalc.org. No one knew FFTOM2 (Final Fantasy 2: Tales Of Magic) included a copy. Back then, FG was the only utility that allowed BASIC programmers to copy archived programs to temporary RAM files.
-United-TI had 5000 posts and still had a calc-related horror stories sub-forum.

One of these days, that game will need a rewrite and a new translation. I don't know about changing graphics, though.
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

Yeah that one

I admit, I was very shocked when I saw his post.

Trust me, in almost 9 years into calc stuff (I started calc stuff on July 4th 2001), Drummist post was the first time I ever read or hear about someone who managed to wear out his Flash ROM. And given that my 83+ got through extreme usage around 2001-05, I am surprised my calc flash ROMs still work fine.

Most people said that it should take something like 20-30 years to wear it out.

The first time I saw it I ended up deleting the programs I had unarchived so I didn't have to Garbage Collect.  It sounded like such a bad thing...  I think after I realized that my calc would never work the same again I tried it.  Then my calc worked! ;D
