Hey everyone! It's that time again, so let's dive into this month's featured projects!
  • A transliterator on the CE: Privacy_Dragon has been working on a program that allows you to convert text between the Roman alphabet and two constructed alphabets. This month, Privacy_Dragon has fixed a number of bugs and even published another beta, so be sure to give it a try (spoiler alert: next month, the final version will come out, as no bugs were reported).
  • Banchor II (TI-84+CE): JamesV has made a lot of progress on his project, adding functional doors, faces for characters, and he's even started work on a party system. This project is very impressive as always, so be sure to check it out if you haven't yet!
  • BOS (OS+ROM) for CEmu: beckadamtheinventor has made a lot of progress on her custom TI-84 Plus CE OS, BOS. This month, she greatly improved the speed of the filesystem, as well as many bug fixes and the return of FAT32 USB drive support!

  • C8SALT: A CHIP-8 emulator in TI-BASIC for the 83+/84+: Oxiti8 has greatly improved his CHIP-8 emulator, adding a ROM importer and some other useful features as well, along with an alpha release this month!

  • Elimination: An RPG inspired by Earthbound / Pokemon: Hot_Dog has been testing and making adjustments to his game, along with fixing a critical bug as well. This month, he has also made an early release so you can try out the game yourself.
  • Fruit Ninja CE [C]: Just in time for the end of the year, Michael2_3B has released Fruit Ninja CE! It's been a long time since he started it, but it certainly was worth the wait as you can see from the thought that has been put into it. Fruit Ninja is certainly tricky to pull off without a touch screen, but Michael2_3B did a great job with his implementation!

  • HASHLIB - Cryptography Library for the CE: ACagliano has continued work on his cryptography library, along with another update this month.
  • Jetpack Joyride for the TI-84 Plus CE: King Dub Dub has made a lot of progress on Jetpack Joyride CE, with a new title screen, bug fixes, and more details added throughout the game. He's also managed to optimize almost 15KB from the total size of the game!

  • TI-BASIC Development Libraries (semi-universal): darkwater4213 has started work on some subroutines to make programming in TI-BASIC more convenient. So far, he's made a menu routine and a routine to wait for the user to press the enter key.
  • TI-Boy CE Progress Thread: calc84maniac has fixed some freezes when running certain games in TI-Boy CE, along with making progress towards emulating Game Boy Color games as well!
  • VYSION 2 CE: the ultimate CE shell: epsilon5 has continued to make progress on his shell. This month he's made improvements to the menu system, worked on a basic filesystem structure, and added a battery indicator as well. Be sure to let him know what you think of the new features.

  • Z80Test: Software Tests for Hardware Components: CVSoft has continued work on his Z80Test program, as he tries to add support for the TI-73.

That wraps up this month's projects. Since the only project completed this month was Fruit Ninja CE, it will automatically move on to PotY and so there will not be any poll. Be sure to check back for the next PotM and for more projects soon!
