Half Life 2: On-Calc
« on: March 16, 2010, 05:53:03 pm »
Hello.  As you can probably tell from the name, I am writing a version of Half Life 2 for the calculator.  I will write more information here in a minute, as well as an early screenie.  If you have feature requests or comments, please put em in here.

Cool, I saw some info in the Axe section but I can,t wait for more stuff and screenshots! I am curious about what you will come up with :)

Just make sure to not start too massive, though, unless you coded in TI-BASIC for a year or two (I say TI-BASIC since Axe is kinda similar and its roots, syntax-wise, are from TI-BASIC). Some people start incredibly massive projects as their very first calc games and don't realise how much work it can be x.x.
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

Thanks for the concern DJ, however, I have been doing TI-Basic for 5 years.
I already wrote this post once, and it failed to post, so I'm skipping a lot and just putting up the attachments.
The screenshot looks a lot better on hardware.
Please try it out, there isn't much yet though.

aaah ok I see, I wasn't sure since you weren't on forums for a while. Sometimes, people only join after 2 years or rare cases 3, but it's even rarer to see them join after half a decade or more ^^

Looks nice so far, can't wait to see more, though. :)

Btw, Netham45 is a big HL fan. I should redirect him to this thread at one point, so if you see a member with a pink nickname in the user reading this topic list, then it's a good sign

LOL I laughed at this!

I think Calc84maniac posted this program in a joke, though, and some sort of parody of misleading ticalc files titles and descriptions (altough this one was in the right section I guess :P)

Question: can the character jump?  Or is up-and-down motion treated as if this were a four-direction scrolling game (like an RPG)?
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.
