I think this would be pretty difficult, since the game doesn't know anything about specific solutions to the levels. It simply checks if the number of completed flows is equal to the total number of flows and if all spaces on the board are filled to determine if the level has been completed or not.

Hints also take away part of the challenge.


Okay, then!

If you ever did want to implement that, you could just add the solution to each level?


If I were to do this (unlikely), I would add a second set of appvars containing hints. This way the old level pack AppVars would still work and the hints could be optional.
How do you make an icon for C programs? Does it use the same format as TI-Basic programs and ICE programs?

I don't know either, but I will consult the documentation to find out.

In the makefile, change "ICON ?= NICON" to the name of your icon, such as "ICON ?= icon.png"

Yes, that is exactly what the documentation says to do!

Here is the current icon:
Cool! A few things:

    -In the level selection screen, you can't use [2nd] anymore
    -You can't stop drawing the flow you're doing
    -A glitch where it won't let me select any node


Also, how hard would it be to make an on-calc level editor?

SM84CE's idea. I did think about it, but I forgot to post about it until SM84CE mentioned it in SAX.

    -Using [2nd] on the on the level selection screen has been fixed
    -Press [2nd] or [enter] to release the current color without connecting it to a node
    -Please elaborate on what this glitch is, and what I can do to recreate it.


Making an on-calc level editor would not be totally impossible. In fact it may be easier than making a level editor for the computer. However, I already have a Java-based level editor for TI-FLOW which can be adapted to work with FlowCE. I will work on this after the game has been released.
Cool! Thanks! The bug just happens randomly, and neither 2nd or enter selects it. One thing is that it only happens after I already have one done.



A google drive link? Or is the link updated?




EDIT: I got a really bad video, but that's all I have Smile

You should also make a menu item that when you press clear, to resume. (Accidentally presses clear. Loses all work)
If anyone wants to make a PR, now would be the time to do so. I plan on releasing FlowCE within the next 48 hours.
I fixed some typos in the readme.


EDIT: I made another PR. (readme again)
here's a request, Sorry I am late, sometimes i press clear when I am almost done with a level, and there is not an option to go back to the level I am on, so I have to restart the level over again. Can you put a "return" option on that menu?

Currently, the game board data is erased before the menu is even displayed, so it is not possible to have a return option on that menu. However, I can restructure the code to make this possible. The next update will include this feature, but it might not be for a few days.
I was going to suggest that if you press clear [clear] twice, to exit. (Goes to the menu, and clear exits)
FlowCE can now be downloaded from the Cemetech Archives. If you encounter any problems, please report them in this thread or through GitHub so that I can evaluate the situation.
Maybe key repeats in pack selection?
Here's some code I wrote in my spare time for flowCE menu structure:

I hope this ends up being useful!
I think the double clear feature is really handy, especially if you might be late to your next class. I think that that's all I think was left to suggest!

Wait...the on-calc level editor Razz (do you other cool stuff first, jonbush!)

EDIT: Maybe key repeats in level pack selection because there are so many packs?
I have played the game, and on CEmu it will save progress, but on my real TI-84 CE it will delete all progress after I quit the game and open it again. Is there something that I am doing wrong or is this a bug maybe?

I have the same problem! Do you know if it has been amended? thanks
