Chances are, you have heard this name before, or T14 somewhere. It's a pretty popular name from what I heard, personally I don't think so, but meh. Basically it was meant to be an RPG to blow RoL and DLQ out of the water (maybe FF:TOM, but prolly not) and has been going onn and off for over a year now. This is v12.3 if you care (v1 being the original) and I am still working on it, from scratch this time, all in ASCII on the homescreen, with the aid of xLIB for some special effects that I may need. It'll be very huge to say the least, I am thinking in terms of the entire 83+'s memory. But we will see, as for some stats on the current version.

1 character to play as, it makes everything easier, and the story more complex.
10 bosses, one for each chapter
Over 250 mapparts (a mappart = 1 screen) to play on
Animated cutscenes, a LOT of them
Full storyline

There is a teaser, found http://cdi.calcgames.org/CalcStuffs/T14.8xp and tr1p1ea has a screenshot of it.

There is the storyline from chapter 1 found http://www.cdi.calcgames.org/T14story.txt as well.

I downloaded it yesterday but as I was pretty depressed I didnt felt like doing anything at that time so I only went 2 screens above, I liked the battles and the intro btw (better than mines XDsmiley.gif)

btw at some point I should make a database of all my magic animation and zip them, so ppl can use them in their games (those from illusiat 11 and 12 mostly)
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

yeah sometimes i got 2 in a row >.< but i guess it can be fixed by having to walk a minimum amount of step be4 getting a battle, like reuben and illusiat (which was 10)


i love those intro XDsmiley.gif

CDI, I enjoy your ascii games a lot. I do not understand completely why you are using xLIB with this though :? , as you could use a different asm lib which is smaller (since you most likely will not be using the sprite routines?). Idk, I like your xLIB theta14 >.> . I still enjoy all of your works, I guess you will be making more use of xLIB with this program :Ptongue.gif .

i think he wants to use the xtemp functions, which is very slow with programs like flash gordon and resource. in xlib its almost instant

sound cool, I wish xlib had a feature that copied the LCD content (even homescreen) to a pic,, zapi did that and it rocked cuz I could do some cool stuff with the homescreen in Dark Link Quest

Yeah, the old boss demo was pretty cool, albeit somewhat easy.

how is it progressing (as well as p3d and the gs sprite/map editor)?
