Atari COMBAT-style game for TIPI-enabled TI consoles launched

Recommended Posts

I finally was able to publish my COMBATTI game, after a complete re-write. This game is a proof-of-concept for a network playable game for the TI, using the TIPI interface for network connectivity. The TI program is an EA5 formatted image and can be loaded from XB by typing:

CALL TIPI("PI.HTTP://myti99.com/COMBATTI")

A myti99.com account is optional. There is no sound, since I don't know how to do that very well and need to do some more research.

 

The server is a multi-threaded Python 3 application, and is what took me the longest to write and debug. There are four game channels supported, each with two slots. When you connect to the server, a bot will connect to play you within a minute (a cron job fires up a bot and looks for empty slots every minute.) If a human player connects, a bot will be booted to free up a slot.

 

More information is available at myti99.com. Please let me know what you think.
