It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything here so this post is sort of an overview of everything that has happened in the casio theater over the last few months.
The Casio-Scene vs. CasioKingdom controversy and consequent outcome
Matt (CK admin) and Helder7 (former casio-scene admin and current casiopeia admin) had a couple week long controversy over casio-scene. There was truth on both sides, from what we can tell, but the main thing is that it was finally resolved and everything seems to be going okay for both sides.
The result of the controversy was that Casio-Scene was closed forever, but all accounts and posts from 2012 were saved and are now at Casiopeia, helder7’s new site. Matt has returned and has revamped CasioKingdom, after long neglect.
UCF forum upgrade and IRC widget
KermMartian (admin and founder of Cemetech) has released some really brilliant projects over the last few months which definitely deserve notice.
About six months ago Kerm released Graph3DP Beta, an impressive addin but not really useful at that point do to several bugs. Recently however, he released Graph3DP v1.0 RC1, RC2, and after working out a lot of bugs and making numerous usability tweaks, he released 1.0 Stable. The result is a powerful, polished, easy-to-use 3D graphing application that is sure to remain on your calculator for a long time.
LuaZM 0.1 Beta
After a long period of anticipation, Lua for PRIZM has finally been released. Though still in beta, this program is ready-to-use and several programs are already in development. The original news post has more information and download links.
TakeFlight productions currently has one project underway, and one finished, both in LuaZM.
Etch-a-sketch is a simple program for your prizm that does exactly what it says. Make pictures just like you would on a real etch-a-sketch.
Pong++ is a pong game for PRIZM that’s been kicked up a notch. The original pong rules will be used, but powerups will also be available. Among these will include Freeze (slow down the ball), Grow (enlarge the paddle for a limited amount of time), and Weapons (shoot the ball!). The game is still in-dev, but status updates will be posted here periodically.
If we have missed any major games or programs done for casio calcs lately, be sure to comment and let us know! We appreciate your feedback.
