For the TI-92 Plus, and TI-89

SMQ is a side-scrolling adventure for the TI-89, TI-92 Plus,
and TI-92 II graphing calculators. SMQ was written entirely in
MC68000 assembly language.

I have made an official SMQ web site. Please look here for new
versions, screenshots, and level sets:

SMQ may be distributed freely, but please do not alter or rename
the files. Also, do not separate this document from the game.

Please read the disclaimer information at the bottom before
using this program.


* A TI-89, or TI-92 Plus graphing calculator.

NOTE: A TI-92 II version is availible on the SMQ web site.

* A link cable (such as TI-Graph Link)

NOTE: SMQ is an assembly language program. It cannot be typed in
like regular "TI-BASIC" programs.


1) Install DoorsOS II (2.00) or compatible.

NOTE: Please refer to the documentation included with DoorsOS
for instructions on how to complete this step.

2) Send the following libraries to your calculator:


NOTE: These files are included with DoorsOS. Make sure you are
using the most recent versions.

3) Send the SMQ files to your calculator:

smqlvl.89s (or any other level set)

NOTE: Even though they have a .89x extention, these files will
work on both the TI-89 and TI-92 Plus. You can rename them if
you want, or simply select "All Files (*.*)" under "List Files
of Type" in the send window of the TI-Graph Link software.

4) To play, enter "smq()" at the command line (without the quotes),
or run smq from a shell.


not work properly with older versions of the libraries.

- You must have up to 35-40k free RAM before executing the
program. The exact amount depends on whether grayscale is enable,
and whether you are running the program from a shell.

- It is possible to run the program from archive memory, but
you'll need enough free RAM for the program to be unarchived,
in addition to the above requirement.

- The purpose of smqlib is to store save game and configuration
data in a separate file so that the main program can be archived.

- Smqlib must not be archived, and you may need to keep it in
the MAIN folder, depending on the shell.

- A set of SMQ levels must be on the calculator in order to
play the game. One set, smqlvl, is included.

- Level sets must be unarchived when you try to use them.
They may be in any folder.

- All level sets will work on either a TI-89, TI-92, or TI-92 Plus,
regardless of what calc they were made on. However, due to the
differences in screen size, a level made for the TI-92(Plus)
may play much differently on a TI-89, and vice-versa. Also,
the header of TI-89/92(Plus) level sets must be changed slightly
in order for TI-Graph Link for TI-92 to accept them.

Main Menu

These selections are available from the main menu:

* New
- Starts a new game.

* Continue
- This will start you from either the last continue point
you started at, or the beginning of the last stage you
were on.

* Options
- Opens the options menu.

* Load
- This allows you to load a level set.

- Sets of SMQ levels are stored in external string variables.
The default variable is "smqlvl", and the default folder
is "main". You can specify other worlds by choosing Load
from the main menu. This will bring up a simple browser.
Use up and down to cycle through the selections.
Left and right are used to switch between folders and files.


In addition to the options, you'll also find the credits and
version number on the options screen. Here are the available

* Speed (0-15)
- Game speed. 1 is slowest, 15 is fastest. 12 is default.

* Exploding Bricks (On/Off)
- Choose whether bricks explode when you breaks them.
If the game slows down when there are many objects on the
screen at once, try setting this to off.

* Grayscale (On/Off)
- Toggle grayscale. If you prefer speed over graphics,
turn grayscale off.

* Threshold (1-64)
- This defines the height at which vertical scrolling takes
place on the TI-89. If you don't like the default setting,
try playing with this variable. 40 is default. This
setting is not accessible on a TI-92(Plus).


In order to accommodate the different key layouts of the TI-89 and
TI-92's, I tried to select the keys that seemed most appropriate
for each calculator.

"A" Button:
TI-89 - [2nd]
TI-92 - [F2] or [F5]

Jump & Swim

"B" button:
TI-89 - [<>] (Diamond)
TI-92 - [F1]

Accelerate & Fire

Crouch & Enter vertical pipe

Up / Down:
Manually scroll up or down. (TI-89 only)

Go into a sideways pipe.

Push once to pause, again to resume.

Push to toggle the score bar on and off.

Quit the game.

[+] / [-]:
Adjust the LCD contrast.

Game Notes

* Domino Effect:

You can get many points by using the domino effect. There are
three ways to do it:

- Jump on multiple baddies without touching the ground.
- Hit multiple baddies with the same turtle shell.
- Kill multiple enemies while invincible.

When killing enemies using any of the previous three methods,
the following scale of points is used:

100, 200, 400, 800, 1000, 2500, 5000, ?

* The high score is reset whenever you load a level set. Also, in
order for a high score to register, your game must end. That
means you must either lose all of your lives, or beat the game.

* Running before you press down to duck might allows you to
fit under tight places when you're big.

* In the water worlds, there are deep holes
in the seafloor will try to suck you in.

* Power-ups can be found in bricks as well as "?" boxes,
so break as many bricks as you can.

* Greed Effect:

Don't get greedy when it comes to points or lives, or you may
go back to zero!

Q: When I try to run SMQ, the screen just flashes, or nothing
A: You probably have an old version of the assembly shell on your
calculator. First download the newest version (links to them
are on my web page), then reset your calculator and completely
reinstall the shell. While you're at it, download the newest
libraries as well.

Q: I am trying to run SMQ archived and I get an "out of memory"
message, yet I have a lot of free memory.
A: When you run an "archived" program, the program is first copied
to RAM before it is run. For this reason, you need enough
memory free for the program to be copied, in addition to the
regular requirements.

Q: SMQ says I am out of memory, and my calculator crashes a few
moments later. I know there was plenty of free RAM.
A: You probably have an outdated graphlib. Older versions of it
returned the wrong value when enabling grayscale. Download
the latest version of DoorsOS and use the version of graphlib
included with it.

Q: SMQ crashes and I am using PlusShell.
A: PlusShell has a bug concerning the heapalloc function that
causes programs to crash if a large enough block of memory
is not availible. There's nothing I can do about this,
its something that is wrong with the shell. DoorsOS seems
to have fixed this problem.

Q: I sent a level set to my calc, but it doesn't show up in the
A: Either you have an outdated version of SMQ, or the level set
was made for SMQ v0.9.9 or earlier, in which case it must
be converted. In SMQ v1.0, major changes were made to the level
set format that made it implausible to maintain backwards
compatibility. See the SMQ webpage for details about
converting older level sets.

Q: How can I speed up SMQ?
A: The power of the batteries seems to make a big difference, so
try replacing them regularly. Also, try turning off grayscale
through the options menu. I have optimized many of the
routines so that they will be faster when grayscale is off.
Although some graphic detail is sacrificed, I think it is
well worth the tremendous speed increase.

If you think you've found a bug, please send me an e-mail
describing the bug. Include all relevant information such as what
calc you are using (89, 92 Plus, 92 II, etc.), what shell (Fargo,
DoorsOS, PlusShell) and what you did to make the bug happen. I
usually need to replicate the bug before I can fix it, so any
information you can provide will help. Please send bug reports to Thanks!

There is always the risk that an assembly language program may
cause your calculator crash or freeze. While it is unlikely
(impossible?) that a program can cause permanent damage to the
device, I cannot be held responsible for loss of data,
damage to your calculator, etc. Use this program at your own
risk. If your calculator crashes, check your owners manual for
instructions on how to recover it.

The source code for this game is completely original (with the
exception of shared library routines) and was written without
knowledge of or access to the source code for any NES game.

This program is NOT public domain, but it may be distributed
freely as long as it is not altered and this document
accompanies it.

This program is intended only for private, non-profit, and
educational use. Any other use is strictly prohibited.

Latest Changes

- ver 1.1.0
* Changes:
- Attempted to improve the physics. They should be more
responsive now.
- Addressed some collision detection issues. Notably,
getting through holes in the floor and ceiling should
be easier now.
- Cleaned up the source code considerably.
- Fixed a bug where you would get stuck on corners while
- Fixed a bug where collision detection would sometimes
get screwed up if you went down a pipe while ducking.
- Fixed a bug in the sprite clipping routine.
- No more PlusShell version. To make PlusShell people
happy, though, I am now using hufflib instead of ziplib.
- There might be a few other changes too...
