Oblivion v1.0 Released
Posted by Michael on 3 January 2004, 17:11 GMT

[Oblivion]Malcolm Smith has released Oblivion, a single player action/adventure game using the FAT engine by TICT. In this first-person shooter, you fight on a hostile planet in search of natural resources to save the Earth. There are the usual enemies, plants, animals, power-ups, et cetera. Go, blast yourself into oblivion on a 89/92+/V200.

Ooh, ooh, it has one of those dots that tell where you are shoting!! I would get this, if the FAT engine was not so damn big. I mean, it looks like a great game, and I know that it was difficult to porgram, but the program itself is big, and the FAT engine is just toom much space for me to set aside.

Just do a quick backup and/or archive reset and you'll have all the space you need ;-)

That's probably what I'll have to do as well.

That's what I do when there's a game I want to test that takes up half the memory.

Well, there used to be a delay in the system, but I believe that is pretty much gone (someone please elaborate :-) ) Subposts can be hard to see, counting would be required, but afaik they are related.

has anyone done a raycasting engine for ti-83 plus BASIC? because i just cannot figure out how to do it... well first i need to learn how to do raycasting.. but, yeah, i know that from a point of view of an object, rays are cast out in all directions then its calculated how far each ray has to go before hitting something but im not sure how to put that from an overhead view to a first person view...

Raycasting on an 83+, in BASIC, would take so long and be so large that it wouldn't be worth it. If you want a good raycasting engine, try to find one written in assembly.

You should just make a doom with levels that have only one level of height. That would still be really cool :)>.

I just don't think it would be DOOM without stairs, or water/ slime/ lava, or lifts. Just about all of the levels include some of those things (no textured floor with FAT either).

I assume you mean with close to the original levels, because otherwise it wouldn't really be DOOM anyway. If you play through Oblivion, you may notice that a good number of the enemies and powerups are from DOOM though ;-)

Yeah, your right. I'll have to explore in oblivion ;). Thanks for your responses.

I was able to create a basic 3D engine, but not an actual raycasting engine. (It is still in the works ;), though there is a demo avalible).

It's called Gemini, and it's in ASM, so go get it...

Ti-83+ BASIC is so slow that even if you got it working and tweakz0r3d it to the maximum extent, it would still be unplayable.

It can be done. Especially on a SE.

You'd get, what, 2 frames per second (even on an SE)? Getting a good frame rate even with assembly can be challenging, especially with 3D games, and BASIC is a couple orders of magnitude slower than ASM.

BASIC Raycasting

It would be cool to see this done nonetheless
Just to push BASIC farther.
