Is this going to be available for the 83 anytime soon? I've been looking for something like this for a while!

In that case you may be interested in B3D - SiCoDe's new 3D engine. One game has been written using it: Urban Wars, currently in v1.0 but soon to be in v1.1. You could try this!

Does the 82 version work on the 83?

Re: Re: New Defiance screenshots released

Negative. Why do 83 users want 82 games ported to their calc?

(I see you've found your way here.)

What the hell is the difference? 82s and 83s are both jack when compared to 89s and 92 plus. You are just screwing around if you aren't working with the best.

Sorry saps

Well then...
I don't understand why you have the need to make comments like this. I mean, the 89 and 92 *are* more powerfull than the 82/83, but does that mean that everyone should just stop programming for the 82/83? Should they throw out there old calculators and go buy new ones every time a new model comes out? I don't know about you, but I don't have the money for everything I want. I wouldn't have a 200 mhz computer if I had enough money to buy a new 450 mhz. I would have an 89, I would have all the nintendo 64 games I want, I would have a color laser printer. But I don't have enough money to get everything I want, so I'm stuck with what I have. I'd really appreciate it if instead of telling me that I should just give up because me/my technology is obsolete (which of course it isn't...) you could keep your annoying comments to yourself. (Oh, and I suppose that you have a xeon 450 mhz computer with a dvd ram and color laser printer, because you wouldn't screw around with things that aren't the best)

Leave me alone, I like my 83 just fine thank you,

Actually, I have a 83 and a 89, and I program more on my 83 than the other. I know both languages but feel that I get more statisfaction from programming a calc that doesn't have it all. I started on the 83 and will die on the 83.

Just one note, Cardboard box, that must be what your brain is made out of. Just because a calculator has a higher # and more memory doesn't mean it's better. Most of the calcs are specialized for certain functions, and that includes the 82 and 83. Currently I have an 83, 86, and 89, and I think all are equal. 89 is good with some applications and simplifying radicals (Which Cymbol does on the 86 too ;) and the 83 has been out longer than the rest so has more useful programs. I totally agree with Dan E, just because some people don't have the latest model doesn't mean they aren't in the cutting edge of technology or too "cheap" to get a new one. I just happen to be lucky to have parents that foot the bill for everything. If you really wanted to you can make some games on the 82 that are WAY better than the ones on 89. The only difference would be the smaller screen size (less pixels). So stop your high number calculator worship, shut up, go back to kindergarden, and bother someone else.

HP forever

If you are using the 89 or 92-plus you ARE NOT working with the best.

The HP48GX (with 2 ram cards/ and or MetaKernal) is the best calculator available. Earable and Alg48 put the ti-89 and ti-92 plus to shame.

Sorry Saps

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Defiance screenshots released

and maybe more people would use the hp486xgh if schools actually supported that calc which if any they dont.

     23 January 1999, 03:39 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Defiance screenshots released

I've seen a HP48GX on display in a store and I was not impressed. It displayed the hour-glass for .5 seconds every time I pressed a key and I could not find out how to enter an equation yet.

Is it crap or are all of it's good features hidden?

Re: New Defiance screenshots released
Hp forever

The hp's with no software on it like the ones in the store are slow and more akward to use. MetaKernal that I mentioned above is software that speeds up the calcs response about 50 times. In fact with meta keernal and Erable on the hp48GX It is faster then the ti-92plus for many calculations
To really take advatage of the power of an hp48GX you need to get ram cards and put software on it. Tons of free software is at hpcalc.org/ . With out any software on it you are right the hp48 is painfully slow. but if you use a few good programs to replace parts of HPOS, like JAVA ect..
the calculator becomes a fast and powerfull tool.

Fact is that hp48gx has a processor on 4mhz,
the TI-92/TI-92+ has one on 10mhz, so I can not
imagine how your magical sofware will increase
the speed up to a 92 or 92+, HP sucks, think it's
time you get aware of that!

At least I don't have to spend lots of cash to upgrade my TI-89 so it is not a piece of junk. The HP was created by idiots for idiots. Besides, this news board was supposed to be about a game for the TI-82, not about weak HP calculators.

No porting has been planned yet. If you would like to port it to another calculator, email me (AFTER the game is finished) and I'll see what I can do.


     21 January 1999, 02:40 GMT

Re: New Defiance screenshots released

I too, would like to see a port to the Ti-83. And I also was looking for a game like this. I've played Deadalus on the Ti-85, and it's great. I hope this turns out just as good or even better. (Even though the 83&82's capacities for such programs is limited)

     21 January 1999, 04:13 GMT

Re: New Defiance screenshots released

I would love to have this game on my 83.

     21 January 1999, 05:40 GMT

it''s for the 82 people

listen to me. i know all you people out there with 83's are eager as hell to get Defiance, it's for the _82_ at the moment. if the author want's to port it later to the 83, that's his business. somebody spends a rediculous amount of time on an engine and they don't need people demanding it be ported out. give the guy a break. this goes for all the "when's it gonna be ported" posts that have been clogging up the comment section here.

please stop.

thank you.

Re: it''s for the 82 people
Dimagus Demorath

Excuse me but no where in the posts that have been posted so far has a person "demanded" that it be ported to the 83, so I don't know what you're looking at. One person just asked if it was cause he was looking for a game like that for some time and another person asked if the 82 version would work on his 83. In no way are they DEMANDING it to be ported, so read more carefully in the future please.

     21 January 1999, 18:01 GMT


So wait... when did you say it will be ported.?

I have really been waiting for this one. Please make it soon, will ya? Some of us don't wanna just keep waiting for the stupid game to come out!

Re: Porting
get a life

If you are that obsessed with wanting to play a game on your *calculator*, then either buy an 82 or YOU program it for the 83. At least let him finish it for the 82 first.
