This game keeps on crashing my calculator no matter what I do.......... maybe it is because that there are different versons of Ti-89 rom?

Re: BomberBoy Released for the TI-89

Although it seems to be an excellent game, bomberboy still doesn't want to run on my TI-89.
Either it displays a line emulator 1111 error, or I just run the game and can only stop it by reseting my TI-89. Could someone help me ?

Rock on! I love this game. I'll be very happy when the link play is supported for multiplayer. Thank you Live Bat Programming Group for your contribution.

Good job...except the person walks too slowly, you might want to speed that up a little bit.

Thank you Eric Sun. I will consider this in a later version, maybe even add an options screen that will allow changes in game speed.

     29 March 1999, 01:09 GMT

Please do

Please do add that option, or make it faster. That is the only flaw. I want to comend you for making such an excellent game. Games like this make me glad i bought an 89. Well that and all the math features that i really bought the calc. for =) hehehe

Re: BomberBoy Released for the TI-89

Wow... nice..

Seems like some type of trend now. First tetris was the game to have, now everyone has it. Then mario was hot, now most of us have it. Then zelda came along and took us by storm, and they are getting finished. Now we have bomberman, which basically finishes off the nes/gb must have games...

I gotta say, all these authors are real good...

Why not have some final fantasy... hehe?

Speaking of Zelda, have there been any more releases since that news article?

But there are many more good games on the gameboy and nes.

Re: BomberBoy

A few quick notes:

1) Excellent job, very nice interface and gfx

2) The bomber does move realllyyy slow, an option to tweak that would be welcomed

3) How about an independant save file a la SMQ, so that we can run the game archived and still have save game functionality?

Great job overall, keep the great games coming!

Gerth Jones

Yes, you are right, it needs to be able to save when its archived. The next version WILL have this feature! Thank You!

Re: Re: Re: BomberBoy

i think all programmers should work an external save game into their games, so that we can run tem archived, i wouldnt mind every game having an extra lib that is a couple hundred bytes (such as the one for SMQ) i mean, the games are fun, but it isnt fun if you have to go through some unarchiving sequence, just to have your game saved, (another side note, when the full version of Zelda isreleased, it WILL HAVE EXTERNAL SAVE GAME, which is a plus)

just my thoughts

Zelda already has the external savegame implemented, but unfortunately you people with the public beta will have to wait =( SMQ actually uses the LEAST efficient method of using an external savegame -- it uses a library, so the library must be present to save. Zelda is currently using a normal ASM file, and if the file doesn't exist it can use filelib to create it -- which SMQ can't do. Grent is now a CCIA member and we will be assisting him with an external savegame in Bomberboy. . .
