I'm working on an RPG which is going to be pretty kewl if i can finish it. Short description:

The idea and levels and such work the same as a simplified Morrowind, and the fighting thing shall be a bit like Pokemon Red and Blue. There are magic attacks and sword attacks. Magic Attacks are Pokemon like Attacks, you can have 4, and they have different effects. They are learned at different levels, or (maybe) someone will teach it to you in the game. All magic attacks cost Magic points, one will take more than another. Because of this, they are mostly stronger than sword attacks.

Sword attacks are different, you can have only one sword attack at a time, and you can buy them at a shop, or you will get one as reward for finishing a quest. There will also be enchanted weapons, with damaging effects, like poison. Using them will cost Magicka too. Note that sword attacks are not always swords, they can also be bows or axes, or any weapon (i can put in an easter egg that gives you a thermonuclear device or something Laughing )

Quests: quests can be things like reaching a level or killing some enemies to item collecting. If you finish a quest you get an item and you can go to the next level.

That are the things i want to put in it. This is what i have already:
-simple fighting engine with 1 magic and 1 sword attack
-walking engine with 3 (!) different sprites and a map creator. Maps are created from matrixes, a matrix cell represents an 8x8 pixel piece of the graph screen.
-4 different classes
-simple quests (only the stat/level reaching part)

It is programmed in TI BASIC, with some ASM utilities (CODEX!!)

EDIT: can someone come up with a good name

pretty slow Sad

It uses codex sprites, and the walking routine only works good on a Silver Edition: drawing a map takes 27 seconds, and 1 step takes over 1 second :|

So not very fast, but the fighting routine works OK.

The 84+ SE and 83+ SE have exactly the same amount of memory and run at the same speed.

This game is for the calculator, to be exact, the 83 family, except the 83(it uses different ASM commands and doesn't have CODEX).

well, i want to do that, but note that i've only just begon with this game. The battle engine now has your stats right-below, your character drawing left-below, the enemy's stats left-above, and the enemy drawing right up. That's what i meant.

Yes, but i don't have a Silver Edition.

Also, the walking demo will be released soon. The engine is 100% done, i only have to add 1 map, add a cheat and add a bonus (cheat) map. The demo will have 8 maps then (5 outside maps, 1 inside map, 1 map-that-will-be-drawn-if-the-map-you're-walking-to-does-not-exist, and a bonus map).

And, Arcane, i found a character sprite in your UTI file map, can i use it?

Haven't tried it out yet.

Okay, I tried it out, and I like the graphics, although a little long to display them.

Your RPG is in BASIC?!?

I use CODEX, which can be downloaded here, on www.unitedti.org. It displays the sprites, and clears the screen. The rest is all BASIC. You can check the code for more detail on how i did it.

By the way, is there an ASM utility that can draw whole maps a little faster?
