You switched to Git? Nice. Feel free to give me access to your repo, my GitHub username is juju2143 and I'll check it out as soon as I'll get my hands on my Prizm (my bro have it atm).
Done ;)
Thanks ^_^

Thanks guys! I appreciate the kind comments. Anyway, here are the screenshots that I promised. The ones showing the particle effects will, of course, look a bit weird since they're frozen in time!

The same as above but with inverted colors:


Finally, the black hole that consumes the game when you quit:

Nice to see you picked up this project :D. The new effects look great
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

The effects are really good! And we have finally the support of other extensions. :D
I updated it on tiplanet.

Hey mdr1, thank you so much! I'm glad you like it so far :). If I get time over winter break, I'm going to continue working on it. My first priority is implementing screen scrolling because, if a long block of text is printed, it tends to get cut off. As I think about it, I may implement text scrolling as an option as well. Also, Lionel, I'm sorry that I missed your feature about nFrotz before. Thank you so much!

Screen scrolling? Good! And will you add support for text adventures including screens?
PS: I made a news of it on tiplanet if you didn't see. ;)
PS2: Sometimes, the cursor makes bug, and a part of the screen becomes grey.
PS3: Could you add an alternative than the command "quit" to quit the program? I was forced once to reset the calc because commands weren't interpreted. It arrives when the text adventure says "press ESPACE" but the key doesn't make anything.

Supporting text adventures with screens is certainly on my long-term todo list, but it may be a bit difficult on the regular NSpire... perhaps I can convert the images to grayscale. Now, let's talk about the bugs. For the cursor, were you doing anything in particular when it happened? What part of the screen turned gray? Also, are you using a CX or classic? I'll try to reproduce the bug. For quitting, I'll add ESC as an alternate way to quit. Which game were you playing when it happened? Thank you very much for your feedback!

I'm using a CX. If I manage to reproduce the bug which I had had several times, I'll put here a screenshot. Anyway, I have some things to report:


By the way, could you add the possibilty to insert a ' symbol? And could you add the possibility to skip the animations with esc when we want to? Thanks a lot for you work!

EDIT: The name of the game in the screenshot is "lieuxcommuns".

Hi I am just wondering if you have had any time to work on this?

I for one love it and am so happy and very excited to use it on my Nspire. Thanks a million for doing this. Nfrotz is awesome!!!

EDIT: OK I wanted to post a few things concerning Nfrotz. Here is what I wrote:

First I am using Nfrotz V1.0 and I am using Ndless 3.6.

When I try and start nFrotz by clicking on it directly my calculator freezes. I have to reset the calculator and then I have to re-install Ndless.

Is there any way that when you click on Nfrotz it will bring up some kind of menu that will let you choose what text adventure you want to play within Nfrotz? That would be a good feature. Like I said above I get the exact opposite effect now. When I click on Nfrotz my calculator freezes and I need to reset it and re-install Ndless.

Another question I have is there any way to escape out of the animations? The first animation when you start a game, quits when I hit escape. Is it possible to have all animations quit when escape is pressed? The particle effect animations look neat but are they necessary?

I have also found that when a big block of text scrolls down the screen it scrolls past the screen and you cannot scroll up to read the text that passes by.

With all this being said I want to thank you for your time on working on this. I for one really appreciate it.

Well, a bit of good news. I thought the source code for nFrotz had been lost because I never got around to putting it in a repository. A few days ago, however, I stumbled across it in an old computer backup! So, after a year of hiatus, I am in the process of getting the code moved into the repo and will resume work on it! Thank you for everyone who's supported the project and I'm sorry that it's taken so long for me to resume work.

joeym, I will take all of your suggestions into account. Thank you for the feedback! Also are you using the CX or classic? A few of the things I plan to implement in the next release:

  • Fix the bug pointed out by mdr1!
  • Add an options menu, with the option to disable the particle effects
  • The ability to scroll up a bit so long blocks of text don't get cut off
  • 4. An improved entry editor with the ability to type " ' "

If you guys think of any other features that you'd like me to add, please let me know! :)

Yay! Development! nFrotz is one of my favourite Nspire apps.
