Wow! Good job! I can tell by those sprites that they are modified from GB, so they can't be the same game. I can't wait until I get an 89 JUST so I can play that! (Well, OK, I'm in it for the symbolic manipulation too :) It looks like the coolest thing since sliced bread!

Now here's a thought:
Could this just be a meager *preview* to what can be done on the 89? Let's hope so!

This is truly impressive. Who could think that 4 little shades of gray could evoke such emotion in me? Very very awesome.

Excelent, I hope this game wille be soon playable !!!!

Re: Zelda 89 screenshots

how big do you think the final version will be? i know the 89 has 384k of user memory, but this seems to evaporate quickly with other games.

i know smq (super mario quest) takes up 26k plus needs another 20-40k to run. sure, it's a really good game, but that's a lot of memory. =)

Re: Re: Zelda 89 screenshots

That's how much can be archived. I would say the amount of RAM is 188K. Whatever.

Super Mario Quest
(Web Page)

Go immidiately to "dimension-ti" (click on 'web page) to download the new release of smq (Super Mario Quest v0.8ā.0) which are many new features
mariolvl.89s and smq.89z do 50 Ko of Memory.

I think smq is the best game for ti89 but Zelda89 will be still better. Hurry Up CCIA !!!

Re: Super Mario Quest

By far it is. But it has been uploaded to ticalc.org as well--but dimti was first.

Re: Re: Super Mario Quest

How do I get this game to work? PLease help.

     25 December 1998, 15:25 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Super Mario Quest

IT doesn't work? It's strange because I haven't any problems to install smq and of course,to play(GOOD game!).You should do this:erase your memory,install doorsOs 0.91 and send smq.89z AND mariolvl.89s in your calc.Then,Run it and have enjoy!

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Super Mario Quest

I've found that you need to have mariolvl in the MAIN folder for it to work.

     25 December 1998, 21:34 GMT

french guy

If the cause of the problem is the fact mariolvl.89s isn't in the main folder, I don't understand ! Before playing a game, see 'readme.txt' : It is written black on white that mariolvl MUST be in the main folder.Even if you don't speak english very well,like me,it's not difficult to understand. C'est compris?

Re: Zelda 89 screenshots

it si very fabulous !
i hope that the public version will be available, soon!

Re: Zelda 89 screenshots

TI-92+ Version (entire screen ...) ???

     21 December 1998, 16:47 GMT

Re: Re: Zelda 89 screenshots

It isn't even done for the 89 yet, and already someone wants a port...

     22 December 1998, 02:09 GMT

Re: Zelda 89 screenshots

Anyone knows about a Zelda version for the TI-86 ?

     21 December 1998, 16:57 GMT

Re: Re: Zelda 89 screenshots

Yeah what ever happened to Zelda 86?

Violin of time? gimme a break. That was just a fake announcement to piss people off when the game never comes out. Anyway I hope someone doing a real version will port it to the 86. remeber the 86 has 96k user so its the best z80 calc to do a big game like this on.

Calm down you guys, Zelda 86 beta will be out approx. Jan 1. to the selected few beta testers (me amoung them :)

     22 December 1998, 03:37 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Re: Zelda 86

Then when will the 86 version be available for the general public?

Zelda 86(that will be somewhat identical with Zelda85) is really coming out. I'm working with the graphics right now and beta testers should get the game in January. The final game will be out "when it's done". I mean, I know all you guys would like to see a good game instead of buggy version... And we are definitely going to finish this project before it's release. There still might be some kind of public beta, who knows...

     22 December 1998, 06:14 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Zelda 86

Could you release a public beta? Please? :o) I'm sure many people would agree with me on the fact that we'd like to see the game in some form, just to get an idea of what it looks like.

     22 December 1998, 17:52 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Zelda 86
Ville Järvi

We will definitely consider it. Now i'm not sure how much i am allowed to say, so...

     22 December 1998, 20:25 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Re: Zelda 86

It's always the people with the 86 that want game ported to their calc. If you (people with and 86) want good games then do what I did and buy an 89. If your lucky like me you can buy one from through your school. Mine only cost $130 instead of $150. That's only $10 more that a stupid 86.

Stop you whining, all of you...

     22 December 1998, 04:53 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Zelda 86

Ironically, it seems 89 owners ask for games to be ported more ofter than 86 owners, but with a different processor 8X<->89 ports are impossible. So at least 86 users have a right to ask for a port when a cool 82,83,85 release is made.

     22 December 1998, 05:04 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Zelda 86

I'd call that a generalization.

Get out...now...no, really, now....what r u waiting for? A bus? GO!!
(Web Page)

I have no idea who this Eugene character is, but quit posting in the comments section. So far you have not helped, and the guy saying the 68k owners ask for more ports is right on all counts. Get out of here before we kick you out.

     22 December 1998, 06:57 GMT

Re: Get out...now...no, really, now....what r u waiting for? A bus? GO!!

I won't argue with your reasoning, but first who are you? Second, do you have the authority to kick me out directly (without calling on the ticalc.org staff)?

     25 December 1998, 03:19 GMT

Re: Get out...now...no, really, now....what r u waiting for? A bus? GO!!

I hate to inform you, but you seem to be the only
person who thinks so. there's no "we" when it
comes to one individual's statement. Besides,
doesn't he have a right to post his opinions like
everyone else?

89''s are whiners
(Web Page)

The ppl with the 86 are the smart ones. Even if we dont get a port, we can run our games on an oncalc emu. And we have a better chance of getting 85 ports (The Quest 3 anyone?) than for 89/92/92+ owners to get a port from a z80 calc. May I also remind you that the 89 is lacking games now, while us 86 owners got as many games as we want with more on the way. There are two version of Zelda (maybe three!!!) in the works for the 86, and no one is complaining. As for the 68k calcs, I think the 92 series suck and the 89 is lacking some major software to make it good. Symbolic equations are the only reason one would want to get the 89 for. Let us not forget that the 68k users are always asking for a port to their calcs, not the z80 users.

Re: 89''s are whiners

Tell it like it is!

     23 December 1998, 01:18 GMT

Re: Re: 89''s are whiners
If you say so...

_Some_ 89r's whine.
I'd bet the majority of us will wait (seeing the 89's only been out a few months) and we'll see some high quality games for the 89!
Just compare - how much has been released for the 89 in its short life!!

     24 December 1998, 08:33 GMT

You need to shut your trap and get real.

I don't see how you are helping out here. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, see above.)

The TI-89 doesn't lack games. We've got plenty of games as it is: solitare, hanoi, smq, and tetris, just to name a few. In addition, TI-89 users can rip TI-92+ games off onto their own calculators! Plus, as it is, we have more memory than you do! 572K memory on a TI-89 versus 96K on a TI-86? Not a chance.

You may say that 68k calcs suck, but remember, that's what you think! That may not be necessarily what others think. That includes other 86 users who don't spend their time bragging their asses off.

Think about it. Why do 86 users have lots of games at their disposal? The 86 was released before the 89. DUH! 89 users don't have as many games as you because there hasn't been enough time to create that many. (4 months vs. a year? Nuh-uh.)

Your last sentence is completely false. There are Z80 users (really stupid ones, too) that ask for ports.

While Michael Cook may have been misguided in his article concerning lack of respect, I think people like you are the people with lack of respect for other calculator model users. Think about it. The TI-89 has a higher number model than the TI-86 does. There must be some logical reason.

And finally, why do you say that the TI-89 is lacking software that would make it "good"? Your TI-86 is probably lacking as much software as the TI-89 is!

You see why put-downs are not appreciated? It provokes people. YOU need to stop bragging about your TI-86, stop talking through your ass and make more constructive comments, or get you and your SOB attitude outta here.

Really? 572KB?

Re: 89''s are whiners
Lord Unigamer

OK then, riddle me this:

If Z80 emulation is difficult or impossible on the 89/92/92+, then why don't you release a prog (for the computer) that will translate and compile Z80 source for the 68k? A *computer* should be fast enough for this...

Then maybe us *lame* 89 owners can shut up...

     26 December 1998, 16:39 GMT

Re: 89''s are whiners

I'd like to mention a few things here...
1)I feel your statement is terribly stereotypical.
I belive that every person who owns a graphing
calculator has a right to programs, ports, and
most importantly, their own opinions. Saying that
"89 users are whiners" is just a childish form of
racisim, if you look at it. I hope that you, as
well as other people realize this sooner or later
(hopefully sooner)

     30 December 1998, 01:23 GMT

Why I got an 86

The only reason I got an '86 (and believe me I was tempted by the 89) was (ironically) the symbolic algebra; I wouldn't be allowed to use the '89 in exams because of it, and since it was for my maths course... (also the 89 wasn't quite out in the uk at that point) still, can't wait for one of these zelda86 games to get released...

     23 December 1998, 13:26 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Zelda 86

well, I haven't seen anyone ask for Zelda89 to be
ported to the 86 yet, so I don't see why you're
complaining. And as for your statement, I'd just
like to point out that not everyone wants to
shell out more money for another calculator, and
frankly, most people don't have the money anyway.
I was lucky enough to recieve my 86 as a xmas
present. Either way, though, it's impossible to
port an 89 program to the 86, so there's really
no need for your concern.
