Reconstruction And a Minor Appeal to All SW Developers Around

Punctually to the new release of TI-Chess this site undergoes a major reconstruction. Due to my restricted freetime I had to drop my plans of a general TIGCC related programming site, but as compromise the TI-Chess Homepage will be restructured to focus not primary on TI-Chess. In the future it will focus on all kinds of TIGCC related projects.
Maybe someone wonders why we still keep the name TI-Chess Team (TiCT). The solution is simple: Chess is a synonym for high quality "brain activities". Most of our released or planned games are and will focus on that "brain activities". No dumb shooters, but games to train your intellectual abilities.
Don't take me wrong. I play shooters and similar games, too. Some of them are really entertaining. But I missed games which I can "battle" against with "pure intellectual force" and I still miss them!
Everyone is complaining. Complaining about almost everything. Constructive criticism is okay, but, heh, where are the guys, who bring real new interesting stuff to the community ? Where are people like Zeljko Juric?
What's about a GO variant? What's about a real roleplaying game or a port of Nethack? Where is a Wolfenstein3D like shooter? Or a civilization game? The ideas and even the sourcecodes lays around on the net for everybody. Just pick them up and invest some time for the porting! And DONT bring demos of programs which will never be released. 70 percent of all files on are demos of never released programs and clones of clones. Most of them are not worth the download time. Another "Don't take me wrong". Some of them are done well and also entertaining, but a demo is a demo. Come on: sit down and show the community your abilities instead of always just complaining !!!

Due to the fact that SokoMize 1.00 should include arround 100 levels I'm looking for people who may design some levels (or port them from other sokoban games). If you want to contribute some levels, send them as .89t or .9xt files to my email account:
Please append your real name to the mail so I can add you to the credits list.

TIGCC Programming Site

Since time passes by more and more programs arrive, which are implemented using TIGCC and Zeljko's TIGCCLIB. Due to the fact that informations about TIGCC programming and/or projects are spread all over the net I want to start a TIGCC programming website, which should cover the following topics:
  • tutorials and documents
  • projects and demos
  • related downloads and links
Due to the fact that for an easy-to-maintain website serverside scripting like JSP,PHP or similar is necessary (+ optional database access), I'm looking for a free hosting service which may supply any kind of scripting.

Additionally I'm urgently looking for people who may help in designing/administrating the site.

You can contact me by mail at:

I'll hope I can get news items on TICALC.ORG and TINEWS.NET to discuss this topic.
