Block Dude in Lua
« on: April 14, 2011, 10:33:23 pm »
In order to become acquainted with the Lua language for the Nspire, I have decided to port Block Dude to Lua!  This is in extremely early stages, and, at this point, my knowledge of Lua is still quite low.  Nevertheless, some basic features are currently working:



Hopefully, this will progress quickly! :)

i'm glad to see that some good is already coming of 3.0. lua looks very promising, even if it is more limited than asm.

There already exist blockdude for the nspire, made by Apcalc. Ofcourse it might not work amore with all those updates.

Apcalc, that's really nice.

I'll start writing a port of one of my TI-BASIC games I made later.
This sounds like it will be fun

I can't wait for a release of this

I thank you for your offer, but since this is being heavily based on my previous Block Dude in C, all I really need to do is change the syntax around.  In fact, I am really just about done with this! :)

So, this is a TI-Nspire Lua port of a TI-Nspire C game which was a port of a TI-83+ game which was a port of a DOS game? :p

Lol Goplat. :P

I didn't know the 83+ game was a port of a DOS game, though. I was sure it was the original. O.O

ANyway I think this is mostly to show what the Lua language can do so far. Looks nice Apcalc. Do you think you can add actual textures or is that beyond Lua capabilities on the Nspire?
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

It was based on "Block-man 1" by Soleau Software. Levels 1-10 of Block Dude are pretty much identical to levels A-J of Block-man (levels 11+ are new).
