RPG Style Health Bars for the TI-nspire!!!
« on: September 11, 2010, 12:21:21 am »
Well when i was playing around with the new graphing capabilities i just 'discovered', i decided to make something. and i succeeded. i made working health bars for TI-nspire games!!! hope to release my program soon but i really don't want other people to take my program, change it and say that they made it or invented. I REALLY don't want that to happen. So if this happens please help stop the guilty culprit and either remove the program or credit at least some to me.  Hope to continue experimenting

hmm.. i can't see the post by michael_lee...

Honestly, if you're that worried about someone taking it I would just keep it to yourself and just release your game. That way if someone makes one they have to do it themselves. I don't know if you are able to see Nspire source code though or something though.

But if something does happen of course we will try to help prevent it and catch it. Though, also, just because someone has a working one too doesn't necessarily mean they took it from you or something.

I am curious what it looks like though and such, good job on creating one.

Oh, erm, I had written a post which asked what a health bar is, but when I looked over it, it felt slightly insulting, so I deleted it.

On that note, what exactly do you mean by a health bar?  You mean like a health bar in a RPG with fighting characters and stuff, or something else?
My website: Currently boring.

Projects:
Axe Interpreter
   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

i mean a graphical health bar, yes like one in RPGS and strategy games. !!!

meishe 91 it is extremely easy to see source code. all you have to do is create a new page then menu -> 4 -> 9 -> 2 and open any program so that's why.

ill release screenshots instead though

Ok, I didn't know since I don't own a Nspire. Is it at all possible to lock programs and such like on the 83+/84+ series?

Well locking them means that you can't open the source code. So if that's possible only people who know what they are doing would be able to do it. But another thing about it is that they actually have to be able to find it in all the code.

problem is they can just highlight the whole code and copy it (copy and paste) not available on an 84 or other calcs. I know this lock feature, it's on my Casio 9850GB+ however for the nspire...

it's different on the nspire. you can put heaps of programs on one single 'document' and 'save' the program to memory and then delete the whole program from screen (it is still in memory though) however opening it is just as easy as creating it

Well I'm pretty sure Omnicalc or something grants the feature of copy and pasting, though I don't remember correctly. It's been awhile. But even if someone copy and pastes the whole source that means we can easily identify that it's your game that is being replicated. What I meant though is for someone to just copy the source code for the health bar that would mean that someone would have to search through all the code of the entire program, pinpoint it, then copy and paste it. So if you have a lot of code in that program it will be hard to find, in theory. Remember, I don't have a Nspire so I don't know what is possibly on it and what is not, or how easy some things are. Sorry.

no problem. however right now i ONLY have the code for the health bar. nothing else. ill try and put lots of other stuff in. but keep this in mind: the whole game has to split up into little programs so they can just take one program and copy it. oh well. thanks for All your help

Well if it is possible to include it with other code so it is harder to find I would suggest doing that. That will keep it the safest. Good luck on more progress :)

The people capable of appropriately using your code are always the people who could code it themselves. Protecting your software makes little sense, if you think about it.

Whatever you decide, its your choice.  If you really are worried about it, by all means its perfectly fine to wait for a release.  As it is i cant wait for a screenie :)
