So, once again it is time to feature some of the projects our members have posted to Cemetech, so no one misses out on some cool things. Sadly, for me this month was fraught with personal problems, so time and energy to work on this was pretty much non-existent. I've done my best to go through the lists and read up on what you all have been working on. I hope I've caught most of the projects to post. You'll notice that much of the activity centers on TI-84 Plus CE projects, which we're happy to see; we look forward to seeing what people create for the new calculator over the summer.

And without further ado:
  • Escheron: Twilight over Ragnoth: Geekboy and Iambian have been making progress on their RPG game, and show off varying enemies, maps, text dialogues and so much more. They also asked that the contributions of Zera, who has been designing other assets, be recognized.
  • Photon: New project by 123outerme, this is a turn based strategy game for the CSE using ships to shoot other ships. Interesting screenshot shared in the OP, so check it out!
  • BasicNote: Michael2_3B has been writing a text editor in TI-BASIC for the TI-84 Plus family. For those not following BasicNote, this month Michael2_3B has gotten some aspects of highlighting text working.
  • TILP: Lionel Debroux has posted up about an update regarding TILP, with various fixes and upgrades. He's wanting people with grey links to do some testing, to ensure things aren't broken.
  • pi calculator: A project by JWinslow to calculate many digits of pi. Although not the first TI-BASIC program to implement arbitrary-precision arithmetic, it does it particularly well, so if arbitrary-precision math or pi interest you, you should check out the topic and the code he posted.
  • Text( command centering tool: This nifty looking project helps you center up text on the CSE. A lot of work was put into this project, check it out if you ever have issues with getting text centered for your projects.
  • Graph3DC: Our very own KermMartian has been hard at work this past month, making great strides in his development of Graph3DC, a 3D graphing application for the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition. There are so many things he's gotten added, and so many screenshots that shows off this work, that it's really best you bounce over to his topic and read up on all his work over the past month.
  • Mono2Color: Some updates done by Mateo, showing off how well this works on the new TI-84+CE and brought a monochrome assembly Tunnel game to the TI-84+CE. Screenshots show off the impressiveness of the work.
  • Portal Returns: Mateo has ported up this impressive game to the TI-84+CE, and updated the code to fix some reported bugs.
  • 84+CE C Compiler: Mateo has gone out and setup a C compiler for use with the TI-84+CE, and has brought the instructions on how to set it up yourself into a forum post.
  • Puzzle Frenzy: Another update by Mateo, bringing this game to the TI-84+CE platform. No other major changes were announced.
  • Pac-Man: Another project by Mateo that is now available on the TI-84+CE.
  • BTetris: BTetris by tifreak8x has been updated with feature requests and bug fixes. It now allows the rotation of pieces via the up key, and has a functional high score system.

And that's a wrap for this past month's project list! As we all move on into the summer months, we hope that you will all be able to find some time to work on projects and keep us updated on them, especially so I have something to write about!
