catsfolly Posted December 23, 2010 Share Posted December 23, 2010 I recently discovered that the ti-86 program dstar.asm, which was the "inspiration" for my Intellivision "ISTAR" game, has been ported to the Z88dk C compiler. This version can be compiled and run on the Aquarius without changing a single line of code. The program uses the low res plotting characters of the Aquarius, so the default output is single color and a bit blocky. I did a quick hack to use the graphics characters of the Aquarius for the graphics. There is tons of room for improvement (suggestions cheerfully accepted), but at least I think I have made it more colorful. To try this version in the virtual Aquarius: 1. type CLOAD . Hit enter a couple times. 2. load cassette file _dstar2.caq 3. type run. Hit enter a couple times. 4. load cassette file dstar2.caq. It uses these keys up A down Q left O right P quit G replay H switch SPACE dstar2.zip It's a start! David Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
