First Fantasy (TI-84 Plus CE color RPG)

When DrDnar released CE TextLib, I started porting my color RPG called First Fantasy: Mana Force to the TI-83 Premium CE and TI-84 Plus CE. FF:MF for the CSE was actually a remake of Mana Force for the TI-83+ with many extra features. Due to limitations, the graphics look a bit different than the CSE version and the HUD now only appears when selecting battle commands like in the 2002 game, along with the menu. But so far I managed to keep the game speed and look somewhat similar or faster. The biggest change in magic animations are Aura, as demonstrated in the last screenshot, and Holy. The other changes are merely colors or removing translucency.

For reference, here is how the TI-83+ and TI-84+CSE games looked like: https://img.ourl.ca/mfffmfcomparison.png

The game also uses that screen inverting routine that DrDnar posted in the other thread in order to erase the ugly white border around the gameplay area that resulted otherwise.

Hopefully I can get something out soon. :)

Thanks a lot. :) By the way, the game port is finally complete:

Today comes our first TI-84 Plus CE release. Back in April, I released a remake of my 2002 TI-83+ RPG Mana Force for the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition: First Fantasy: Mana Force. Today, I am proud to release the TI-83 Premium CE and TI-84 Plus CE version!

Like the CSE remake, this port features all the enhancements that were added compared to the original monochrome game, ranging from enhanced graphics, new magic spells, new enemies, new cutscenes, expanded storyline and many new challenges. There are 16 magic spells available, 7 character classes, 48 monsters (this port lacks the easter egg) and several hours of gameplay. It is the first RPG to be released for the TI's ez80 calculator line and this port takes advantage of CE Texlib, by DrDnar, to draw colored text and rectangles in TI-BASIC programs on the home screen, as well as his screen inverting code.

If you like JRPGs and got a TI-83 Premium CE or TI-84 Plus CE, then you should give this game a try.

A small update:

If you happened to play the TI-84+C version, it had a bug during the final battle, which I have now fixed, so make sure to update when you can.

I was also contemplating porting this game to the Casio fx-CG10/fx-CG20, as well as the HP Prime, but it will depend of motivation and if I won't get sidetracked by other projects.
