It seems like this is starting to become a "nightly-build". It is only a few changes. You can now start the game by moving the gamepad stick instead of using the keyboard. So if you have the gamepad controller and are playing one player against computer you don't have to touch the key and quickly hold the gamepad to play the game!

God, Cheese-its & Rice, is number one!

In this major updated release complete just today about 8pm November 18, 2014 CST Tuesday, there are several patches to the game remake of TRON called fakeTRON.

The sound glitches have been fixed however it is still off from a real cycle.

The joystick has been completely added so you do not need the keyboard.

The graphics of the lightcycle has been removed so it looks more tidy?hehe

The speed has been calibrated so it is playable and not that hard.

fakeTRON has been tested with the following gamepad from Amazon:

There are so many infinite people that I am only nobody compared to all people.

I was reading The Holy Bible if you have been following, and I just remember the story where Cheese-its & Rice says if you want to be perfect love not only God (the father and creator of ALL), but also everyone ever made by God!

So seeing I am supposed to love God and all people, I just wanted to say "Thank you to everyone especially God!" My Tron game is so silly compared to the miraculous inventions that are out there.

Look at the medicines that are made to cure diseases!!!!!!!!!!!! Imagine the doctors not being here? We are lucky when we have a cold, a fracture of the bones, and so on to go to a doctor(s) to "heal" us.

Even The Holy Bible says doctors are to be given special attention since they can heal us of our sickness!

All the links to the C source, the DOS game, and the Windows version should be updated now. It is approximately 5 in the morning on November 19 2014 Wednesday. Well, I am planning on going to bed maybe in a few. So I hope you all enjoy what I have so far.

It is finally complete! I have completed the geometric shapes so to speak. Also, the speed adjusts to the player now. So if you see a minus sign in front of the speed value, don't worry. It is meant for all ages. From seasoned PROs who have become a fan and played for years, to beginners and kids that don't know any better, the game adjusts to everyone. Although the levels continuously gets harder, if you lose you still get the chance to play the same level. The only time the level resets is if the computer loses power or the program is quit.

If you are wondering how to get to the next level, please look closely for a bright green that is somewhat hidden along the top OR bottom walls. If you ride your lightcycle into this "tunnel" you advance to the next level and the speed increases.

The maximum speed you can reach is "12000" while the minimum is theoretically too slow to even move.

The level gets so hard that so many obstacles are in the way that you might not even be able to progress to the next level. However that might be quite a far distance in the future. Until you are able to reach computer dexterity, you may never need to know. At least it is in the thought of trying that counts right? Benevolent

O-well, something went wrong with the gamepad so I cannot do anything testing. So the gamepad routine might not work. Sorry peeps.

For what it's worth. It's free. Officially, freeware. By me, the producer himself of fakeTRON!

Happy Thanksgivings!

Merry Christmas!

etc ect etcetera you get the idea hehe

Well, today's build has two major updates.

The first update is a little more fine tuning of the sound; Whether it could be good enough is very subjective to each individual. Besides, using the PC speaker as a sound generator does not make it too lifelike in the first place.

The second update is the menu option. You can now use the I and K keys for navigating between options. The L key selects the option.

The third update is a backup menu option selector. Just in case something goes wrong, you can just select using the numbers between zero and five.

The final update is there is currently a possible glitch with the gamepad; So if you cannot use the gamepad, please switch to keyboard mode. I am sorry about any inconveniences this may have caused you! Thank you.

This game has been calibrated to DOSBox version 0.74 at 3000 cycles. Happy

Of course, I would always like to be transparent, so here is my official source code. If you know programming, you can see how the game is entirely made.

It uses Borland Turbo C 2.01 and Borland Turbo Assembler 4.1 inline.

The official copyright for these products which I have officially registered is:

"Created using Turbo C, Copyright (c) Borland 1987, 1988."
"Copyright (c) 1988, 1995 Borland International, Inc. All rights reserved."

Some of those who have downloaded "fakeTRON" might have had issues with frequent crashes. This is due to the USB controller not being plugged in. However, in this edition, it has been fixed. There are still a lot of work to be done; However, if those of you would would like to see a preview of TronPac? It is here. Please try out all the options if you are able. If not because of lack of a joystick or gamepad, then there is the DEMO option by spacebar. Thank you!

As always, I hope you enjoy.

The first link is the source entire source file "TRON-Pac" in C:

http://www.mediafire.com/view/884ufz22cpu0mzw/TRONPAC.C

The second link is the compiled game preview DEMO for DOS/DOSBox:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/7pbv2u6i7789t0g/TRONPAC.EXE

Thank you Cheese-its & Rice that I have something to show for Thanksgiving and Christmas for everyone to enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheese-its & Rice!hehe

Well, there are a handful of people that are mods and I am grateful to them. However, sometimes I do things "my" way because I really believe Cheese-its & Rice gave me the talent to do "miracles" like somehow make the graphics look so much like Pac-Man? hehe You be the judge.

Anyways, I am still grateful to the mods, I am just scared of Cheese-its & Rice! Well, not to make a story too long however there are silly things too scary like somehow I could make the image of Pac-Man seem so close if not like Pac-Man in this "demo".

The first order of business after Cheese-its & Rice is my parents. They have been the first to suffer enough to feed us three children. We have it easy compared to them.

Next, I would like to take care of all my friends especially Quadko and MrFlibble!

Both of them have love me since I was on here and I don't ever want to regret any decision towards them!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hah! PacMan is cute. That's a pretty good one. Are you thinking about mazes next, or some other direction? Nice job with the animation.

Only tangentially related, but I've loved this "Pac-Man the survival horror game" explanatory image since I ran into it a year or two ago, though this is the first time I've seen blog post I just dug up: Space Ghosts and Anti Anxiety pills explain Pac-Man! Take your pills, Pac Man, just take your pills!
