Terrario, a Terraria rewrite for the calculator
Posté le 10/07/2020 16:05
Hi. I noticed a while ago there weren't any games like Terraria or Minecraft available for Casio calculators. For the past while I've been working on rewriting Terraria in C for the SH4 calculators using gint. I'm not sure when if ever I'll finish it, since it is a fairly big project, so I've decided to put it here for now.
Here are a few screenshots of the progress so far (some may be out-of-date):
The game runs at 30FPS. Worlds are 1000x250 tiles big (400x100 on the 35+E II / GIII).
The control scheme and a crafting guide can be found in MANUAL.txt (controls are also listed in the About menu).
This forum page is updated regularly with the latest release of the game, as well as a changelog in the comments.
Most recent update:
Chests and zombies.
The attached file contains the latest build of the game, as well as instructions and a screenshot compiling script.
The source code repository as well as early builds of the game can be found at this GitHub repo
and its Gitea mirror
(the latter can unfortunately not contain release binaries). Obviously, expect bugs in these early builds, though I take care to remove the major ones I find before releasing.
Due to the very large world, the save files for this game are big. Make sure you have at least 450kB of storage space before installing the addin (200kB on Graph 35+E II), and try to keep at least 250kB free afterwards. Tampering with the files in the TERRARIO folder will corrupt the save, so don't do that. The game will warn you if you have low storage space available, so that you can optimise your storage.
NOTE: If you have an SH3 model calculator, use the Graph 35+E II / fx9750GIII version. The game is not supported on SH3 models so it may not run correctly, and on newer builds will not run at all due to lack of RAM.
