Texmaster

Texmaster is a tetris clone developed by Report.

MOD EDIT: On the behalf of Report, I have edited this first post to provide links to the latest release. -Edo

Latest Release:

2010/05/01 - Texmaster 2009 Version 3 (SDL-1.2.14)
Win98SE-Win7, Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)

==================================================

Usage Notes:

Error in .ini file:
There is an error in the .ini file which prevents conifguration of controls. Find the following two lines in the .ini file...
Code:
player1 = 1
player2 = 2
...and replace them with:
Code:
key_type_pl1 = 1
key_type_pl2 = 2

Regarding joystick button configuration:
[quoteumbledorsArmy][quoteumbledorsArmy]I've changed the .ini file to the corresponding keys, but I get nothing. Am I just being dumb and too tired or what?[/quote]
Windows starts counting from 1 and Texmaster starts counting from 0.

Hence, if Windows reports a key to be number 8, you should use 7 in the Texmaster .ini file for that key.[/quote]

Shortcut keys:
Code:
 [F1] Player1 unlimited speed, fast forward replay
[F2] Player2 unlimited speed, fast forward replay
[F3] View section time records
[F4] ---

Is this even newer than the one posted in the records section of the forum, or did you just post it here too for clarity?

3. ### Caithness

It's the same one. I'm sure he just posted it here for the benefit of the people who don't check the records section.

Texmaster is pretty nice. But the best thing is that since it's such a good TAP and TGM simulator, it got me to change my Heboris settings to mimic Ti, which I found to be a lot more fun.

4. ### Zaphod77Resident Misinformer

I thought Heboris defaults were already on TI settings?

5. ### Muf

A bit of clever deduction would then lead you to conclude that Caithness probably had his copy of Heboris set to mimick TAP, instead of the default settings.

6. ### jujubeUnregistered

i just created this topic because we didn't have one yet. i'll update the link as new versions come along.

7. ### lee n

Right.. I didn't complain about the topic. I just wanted to know if I should update the version I already have or not.

Maybe you should include a date with the links - so people can see when it was updated?

8. ### ReportTexmaster developer

Texmaster 2009 beta 1

Thank you.

Texmaster 2009 beta1 -> beta2 -> beta3 -> beta4 -> Texmaster 2009 release

9. ### DIGITALUnregistered

Awesome! Thank you very much Report.

I was testing out the Ti modes and unable to use HOLD. Is the function implemented yet?

10. ### lee n

HOLD is on space with the default config.

edit: .. and yes. Thank you very much Report. I really like Texmaster.

11. ### DIGITALUnregistered

It works on type 1 settings for keyboard but it doesn't seem to on type 3.

12. ### Altimora.k.a. Ghett0

Um... can somebody tell me how to configure it? Editing the .ini file does nothing.

13. ### lee n

I just tried it and you're right.. I guess this can be attributed to this being a beta release.

14. ### Zaphod77Resident Misinformer

Has the bug where it can give an O piece as the first one been fixed?

15. ### caffeine

it opens and everything, but when i press a button, nothing happens. maybe it's because i'm on vista.

16. ### cdsboyUnregistered

*cdsboy wishes there was a linux version

18. ### cdsboyUnregistered

love ya report!

Excellent! Runs perfectly on my Slackware box.

I think I've found my replacement for going through all the trouble of getting TAP running on XMAME.

(As a bugfixing aside, Novice appears to be completely broken. One of my friends tried it, the second piece given is an odd colored one, and upon locking that piece it game overs)
