Gravity Guy
« on: September 07, 2011, 06:09:03 pm »
Hey everyone, so basically I've started a new, small project to get back into calc programming and to help me learn to use CalcGS. (This is Axe of course)

It's a port/variation of the popular iphone/flash game Gravity Guy. It's one of those endless style games, where your only weapon is the ability to change the direction of gravity. If you fall or touch the edge of the screen, you die >:D Most of the engine is done atm, there's just a little bit left to do:

-Score
-Increasing speed as you hit the >> tiles (current speed is at 6mhz, no delay; I'll have it start with a delay like in Cuberunner and Space Dash)
-Snail powerup
-Rockets? (Not sure if I'll include this)
-Level switching
-Title screen/Death coding etc
-Level clear
-Fix bug where tilemap glitches after being pushed backwards.
Here's an executable, although I think I accidentally made the level so that it's impossible...lol Source attached, I didn't bother putting up the data include files though :P

That looks like a very cool game and the graphics and gameplay seem very nice! Good job squidget, as usual, awesomesaucing on us!

What is CalcGS by the way?

@Squidgetx: I'm not familiar with the original, but it looks pretty cool. :)
@Ephan: Calgs is an old program for making graphics for use in calc projects. It has a windows release, but I'm not sure about other platforms. It should be on ticalc.

Awesome! I loved the original, and this looks promising.

Brotip: Make him fall a bit faster, and maybe take out the acceleration to make it simpler (I don't think the original game had acceleration either)
In-progress: Graviter (...)

I like the idea. I've never played the original, but I am looking forward to this all the same.

Thanks for all the positive feedback :D

I've started putting in the infrastructure for level clears, dying, etc, and I've upped gravity so that he falls a bit faster as well.

I tried sending this file to my friends ti-84 se but when I transfer it, the ti-connect software gives me an error message saying that my device does not recognize the command. How to I fix this?

What device are you using? What cable are you using? What was the order of what you did to transfer it? Have you been able to successfully transfer between your two calc's before? What OS is on your calc, and your friends calc?

Also, I've seen 84s out there, SE and BE, that have never been updated since they were bought. One had an OS with a version number that started with 1!
The point of this is that the OS may be super old, and the error it's throwing may be legitimate.

I am transfering it from my computer to my freinds ti-84 plus se. The cable is a mini usb to usb. The OS on the calculator is 2.55 I believe. I used TI connect.

ah ok, have you been able to successfully send other variables to his calc? If you have a silverlink I would recommend using that since the USB code is kinda bad for TI-connect.
