29 Aug 2010

Don't forget that if it's 12:01am EDT (GMT-4) next Sunday, September 5th, 2010, you will have missed Cemetech Contest #7's deadline! Contest 7, a Doors CS-themed contest, challenges BASIC, ASM, and Axe programmers to create a program or game that takes advantage of the Doors CS features for that language, including headers and BASIC libraries for BASIC coders, and ASM features like the GUI system and AP system for ASM programmers. Entries will be graded by myself and Rivereye on the basis of originality, speed, size and use of Doors CS libraries. A first-place winner will be chosen from the ASM and the BASIC category, and an overall grand prize winner will be chosen from between those two winners.

The grand prize winner gets to choose between a unique Chameleon'd TI-73 converted into a TI-83+, the only TI-83+ in existence that can executed in RAM Bank 3 without crashing, donated courtesy of Brandon Wilson, and a TI-83+ Silver Edition, donated courtesy of Shaun "Merthsoft" McFall. The second- and third-place winners in each category will receive a USB power injector crafted by yours truly, which not only lets you plug standard USB devices like mice, keyboards, Bluetooth dongles, WiFi dongles, and more into your calculator, but injects more power than is provided by the calculator via a complex circuit and a 9V battery so high-current devices can be used.

So wrap up your entries, remember to add a readme and compress your files and readme in a zip (as well as mention which DCS versions you have tested under), and submit your entries before the deadline! Good luck to all the entrants, and feel free to post in this topic if you have any last-minute questions or points of clarification.

Good thing indeed! Although Cemetech of course does not condone working on contest entries instead of paying attention in your math classes. Wink Good luck on your entry.

Mine's already sent in but I need to take a look at that strange graphical bug one more time to see if I can actually fix it. It has been bugging me for a while >.<;

Is it by any chance replicable via this?

That seems to be an issue with real(3) and DCSxLIB. Mine's an issue with real(12) and xLIB. I might try a variant of that solution though. Seems like it's worth a go.

Fair enough, and now that I'm thinking more clearly, it seems perhaps you said that you get the same behavior on both xLIB and DCSxLIB?

By the way, if you're reading this topic, you're entering, and you're not one of the following people, would you mind reminding me that you're entering?

> Souvik1997: Hybrid BASIC
> KeithJohansen: Hybrid BASIC
> Qazz42: Hybrid BASIC
> xxEpicxXXxFailxx: Hybrid BASIC
> Player1537: [unknown]
> BrandonW: z80 Assembly

Looks like the Hybrid BASIC category is gonna be a close one. And BrandonW will for sure win asm if nobody else enters.

Indeed. It would be fun if he ends up winning the grand prize, if he picks his own calculator as his prize. Laughing

The same behavior occurs from the home screen with xLIB, from DCS6.2 with xLIB, from DCS6.2 somehow using DCSxLIB, and from DCS7 using DCSxLIB. It's an xLIB problem, quite self-evidently.

Also, it looks like BrandonW is going to win his division by default Razz

Quick, someone else enter the ASM division and see if you can pull off stealing the win from BrandonW! Laughing

Do it! You should definitely try to enter that.

Originality: Not many games like mine.
Speed: Pretty fast.
Use of DCS libs: YEAH!
Size: FFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...

Well, speed vs. size vs. reasonableness, of course. A 2KB sidescroller is decent, while a 2KB integer guessing game is not so decent (unless, of course, it's grayscale).

Oh. I wanted to know...

How EXACTLY is the 73 unique? Is it just Chameleon'd and case swapped?

It can execute asm code above $C000
