Could one of you guys go through all the programs, and make sure they work correctly and are optimized as much as possible? I believe they should be fine, but it'd be good for another person to check them as well. Thanks.

I keep getting an error, i believe dimension mismatch, after the calculator sets up the first wave on Canway's Game, but all of my lists are set to the same number of numbers.
Blacksmith, woodsman, patriot, and programmer.
Pong's giving me a domain error. Every single time. It's taking me to the line where it displays the "O", so I guess it's not checking for boundaries?
It is checking for boundaries, though. That's what these two lines are for:
:T(Y>1 and Y<8)+(Y=1)-(Y=8→T
:S(X>1 and X<16)+(X=1)-(X=16→S
Could you check to see what values the variables have when the program crashes?
I just tested the maze thing. And I looked at the code a little.
So you get more points if you do it quicker… Oooohhhhh.
Which explains why I got two times as many points for crashing immediately.
Hey! I just found out you can edit!
I can't download any of the programs.
Yeah, the goal is to get through the maze with the highest score. If you touch one of the walls, your score will be high but you still lose :D
I ran into the same problem when trying to download the programs, so I assume you must be using Firefox. The only solutions I can come up with are to either use Internet Explorer (no thanks!) or bundle the programs together as a .zip file.
3￫X:Ans￫Y is not an optimization, as Ans is slower than 3. Check that a rule is beneficial before applying it!
Goose, when you tried downloading the .8xp programs did you have any trouble like Xphoenix or I mentioned? I just tried downloading the programs again, and instead of Firefox opening up a download box, it actually treated it like a text file. Would you know how to fix this? I can group all the files in a .zip file, but that would be my last resort.
I responded to your personal message. Frankly, I think it's silly to look at archives as a "last resort"—they've been standard for quite some time now.
Is there a problem with using Unicode characters that are more representative of their analogues, or, indeed, using tags to raise the T or lower the L? I notice that you "downgraded" the text that I sent you, to the point that a comment had to be written to clarify a token. I'm certain that most visitors are capable of rendering these characters.
I didn't downgrade any of the text. I copied it from your post to the page, and that's how it was rendered. The reason I wrote a comment for the transpose 'T' command is because the wiki doesn't allow you to have subscript or superscript tags in code. There's nothing I can do about that.
I am getting a domain error in the program AVALANCHE.
It is taking to me to where it says
What is the problem?
I just tried the Avalanche program on my calculator, and it worked fine. I noticed in the line of code that you posted, you have a space between the comma and the "V string, when there actually is supposed to be no space there:
:Output(Ans,L1(I), "V should be :Output(Ans,L1(I),"V
If you try making this change, does the program now work for you? I also wanted to mention that the Avalanche program is available for download (click here), so if you have the graph link you can send it to your calculator.
Okay, I believe I figured out the problem. The list that the Avalanche program uses is supposed to be the built-in L1 (accessible by pressing [2nd]), but for whatever reason I ended up just putting the letter L and the number one together. Please try replacing L1 with L1 everywhere you see it used in the program, and tell me if that makes the program work.
in guess the number im getting an error in the 2nd to last line, disp "too"+sub("highlow ",1+4(A>B),4
the syntax error is at ,4? any one know why?
I tried the program on my own calculator just now without trouble, so I guess you may have made a typo. Were there any symbols or commands you weren't sure about?
Well, my thinking was that somebody is going to be on at some point, so we could answer questions and give help then when a person asks for it. Thinking about this idea more, though, Goose's #Optimize IRC channel only averages a few people, and he has had that going for a fair amount of time. I don't think we would have any better success.
