There won't be many games for the 7400 because the games can't read keypresses other than by entering a number. Your best bet would be to get an algebra FX series or 9850.

I guess it is no key, but the command has to be found in some of the menus...OPTN or somewhere. Maybe checking the manual is an idea.

I see this post is a bit old, however I just discovered this forum, and may have an answer to the games question.

Having just recntly discovered the programmable calculator I started scanning the net for different programs. The calculator I decided to try first is the Casio 7400.

It does seem to suffer from a lack of graphic oriented games, however I think text based games are plentiful.

Way back in the 80s when I had a trs-80 model 3 and a color computer, I got a book called "Basic Computer Games" or some similar title. It occured to me that most of these games were text based and would be perfect for the 7400.

I scoured the net and found a site that had the program code for classics such as "Hunt the Wumpus", "Hamurabi", "Darmouth Football", "Battlestar Galactica" and "Star Trek". There were many others, but I thought this would be a good start.

These games are text only, but those of us who remember them know how fun they really were.

The code for them is Basic, but I have them all here and think that they should be easily translated to Casios "Basic like" language.

I still have a day or 2 left that I need to continue learning Casios language.

If you understand Basic, then translating these old programs to Casio should be easy.

Casio's version of BASIC is much more simplistic than the BASIC on computers, but also more limited, so some commands that might be a single command on a computer might be a number of commands on a calc. Also you have to look out for any games like that that would require a typed response to anything, everything for a calc should probably be menu based options. Just a thought.

Good point. Fortunatel most of these games are not very complex. Tonight I am beginning to translate the football program. It basically has 7 choices....various runs, kicks, passes and so on. It should simply require an entry of a number with each number directing the program to the suitable sub-routine to figure field position and such.

I think this should work fine or at least I will have fun trying and might even learn somehting.

sounds good, when you get it running, I would be happy to translate it to code for the 9850 and afx2.0 series if you let me. It's up to you, I don't want to steal credit from you by any means.

no problem at all. It is not my original idea at all.....just converting somebody elses stuff.

I beleive this one was written on an old mainframe at Dartmouth originally.

When I get it translated I will send it to you if it works.

sorry, dont mean to keep blabbing, if thats not cool here just let me know....dont wanna make a bad iimpression.

However, I can send the code when I am done...or I can send you the original code now....whatever you would prefer.

Mine will be simplified a bit....so the original is more complete.

try sending me the code you translate, I think that would be more easily transfered to other calcs anyhow.
