Harvest Moon Released for 83+
Posted by Michael on 15 September 2004, 01:30 GMT

[Harvest Moon]Have ever you longed to own a grand country farm where your neighbors all own shotguns, chew straw, and ride tractors on their half-mile long driveways? You can now simulate farm management, at least, with Harvest Moon for the 83 Plus (but not SE). With this game that provides fantasy-world farming experience, you can grow four exciting crops: Turnips, potatoes, tomatoes, and corn. The goal of course is to have a successful farm and earn money. Unfortunately, the always-exciting tool of slash and burn agriculture doesn't seem to be an option.

Hnn... that's too bad that the game won't run properly under the TI-83+ Silver Edition... that happens to be what I currently have available. =(

Oh well. Hopefully a SE-friendly edition will come around one of these days. Either way, even though it's currently out of my hands, the game looks great! Good job! =)

Applaently TI agrees. The current calculator lineup is 73E, 83+, 84+, 84+se, 89Ti, V200. (I'm not sure if they still make 86s.) Note the 83+: I think that at this point it's TI's longest in-production calc.

They still make and sell all but the 92, 80, and 81, and the lder version of the 82, but the newer version is still in production. THe 86 is still sold as well. They just don't advertise it on their site.

A lot of state government bodies prohibit the use of calculators exceeding 83+ (standard) specifications as it makes cheating easier. Currently, if a teacher checks your 83+ they can simply clear all the memory. (atleast I don't think any programs have been made to recover memory that's been erased then garbage collected)

Depends on if they use TestGuard or not...I'm mostly done with a program for the 83+ that does a fake clear when TestGuard is used on it. That *would* be sad if Harvest Moon got erased from your calc because of some stupid restriction...

Legally, they can't clear your memory. It's theft of data.

Clear Data

But legally, couldn't they not let you use the calc unless you clear it. They cant FORCE you to clear your data, but until you do, they don't have to let you use it.

Right, but he was saying that if they found a calculator with data on it that they could clear it, which is illegal.

Right, but he was talking about teachers being able to destroy others' property on sight, which is illegal.

That's odd. It didn't display the first post until I posted a second post. Please disregard, and, if you have the capacity to do so, delete the second one.

YES!

I've seen the demo in the archives for a long time, I got the feeling it would never be finished. I will have to try it now.

Same here - I was surprised when this version came out that it wasn't another demo.
