Spoiler For funny life mathematics:
1. ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a$1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a$2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
*Girls=Evil credit goes to Compynerd255*

Oooh ok ^^

Those games are cool, by the way

I wish Pi was longer, though

An example of unrolling:
0
For(I,1,3
Ans or [A](A+I,B
End
// unrolls to
[A](A+1,B) or [A](A+2,B) or [A](A+3,B

AAaah I see.

Sadly TI parser interprets TI-BASIC so slowly that the later code will run faster. In certain game cases it's almost like if you had to sacrify the entire size you would have saved by using a For( loop or two by doing each iteration manually to save an entire frame per second. It can be demonstrated by one of my old shooter included in Omnimaga Pack and an old Netham45 program

I also remember KermMartian had a 12 level grayscale program for the graph screen, but it only showed dots, if I remember.

If only Omnicalc fonts were installable without Omnicalc and worked on graph screen, too, then we could have some characters that have duplicates with inverted checkered pattern and do grayscale in a way similar to xLIB/Omnicalc/Celtic III. As for now if you're gonna do this with Omnicalc you migth as well just use sprites instead
