Candy Wars
« on: November 23, 2013, 01:42:16 pm »
I made a quick Drug-Wars clone called Candy Wars.

I'm lazy, so I'll just copy-paste the readme:
Code: [Select]
   _____                _    __          __
  / ____|              | |   \ \        / /
 | |     __ _ _ __   __| |_   \ \  /\  / /_ _ _ __ ___

I like it, it works for the +C! Maybe display the day in the main menu. And how do I lose over $3,000 outside!? Does it just fall out of my pocket! Maybe add a bully to take place of officer hardass! And you could buy brass knuckles or something to beat him up! :D (Or a shotgun to give it a nice american touch ;)) Good job on the game!

I'm glad to get that kind of positive feedback from a programmer of your fame. Thank you.

I wouldn't know how to display the day in the main menu and make it look pretty. I mean, why don't you try to do that with the Menu( command? I don't think you can.

About losing money, that was my translation of "YOU WERE MUGGED IN THE SUBWAY" from the original. The loss formula was 2int(M/3), and I used that in the game.

Great idea about the bully, but I won't do the brass knuckles thing.

Once again, thanks for the feedback!

I couldn't find a way to convert real variables to strings without assembly :(

Here's what I got, it doesn't look pretty, I suck at BASIC, it uses 7 extra variables, but it does display up to 9,999,999 days in the menu:

Code: [Select]
Lbl C
"0123456789"->Str3
"DAYS"->Str1
D->E
0->B
":"->Str2
1000000->A
While A != .1
If iPart(E/A)=0 and B=0
Goto S
Str2+sub(Str3,iPart(E/A)+1,1)->Str2
1->B
E-iPart(E/A)*A->E
Lbl S
A/10->A
End
Str1+Str2->Str1
0
Menu("   CANDY WARS","SEE PRICES",0,"SEE YOUR CANDY",1,"BUY",2,"SELL"
,3,"EXIT",theta,Str1,C)

It looks like:

   CANDY WARS
1:SEE PRICES
2:SEE YOUR CANDY
3:BUY
4:SELL
5:EXIT
6:DAYS:123

You could do a better job than me optimizing it if you think it looks good enough.

I played the game and I like the idea, it's creative ;D also you should introduce yourself!
Visit my GitHub for all my TI programs as well as other projects.

As for AssemblyBandit, there is a shorter way. It only uses Str1 and X.

Code: [Select]
"DAYS:
For(X,1+int(log(D)),1,-1
Ans+sub("0123456789",1+int(10fPart(D/10^(X))),1
End
Ans -> Str1

The Menu( command works the same, though. And I didn't know it worked like that!

As for ClrDraw, I just made a new thread introducing myself. Also, I am Josiah W on TI-Basic Developer, so check me there, too.

I like the idea. Drug Wars was a great classic, but sadly that kind of content is not allowed in most online calc archives anymore, so it's very hard to find. An alternate version with no drug reference is definitively good as well, I guess :)

Drug Wars was a great classic

And how. It was the first calc game that I played once I got my own calc, and I still play it from time to time. It still has a home as my dual-screen wallpaper (see spoiler).
