Qix is a simple line animation, created based on the original Qix by Taito. The arcade version of Qix has been released in 1981 and cloned a couple of times. The original Qix involves drawing rectangles in attempts to limit the space of a line animation.

This version of Qix just shows the line animation, to start and stop the animation as well as limit the space the animation can use.

Installation

Download and extract file.

Put the .nds file and this .txt on the card.

User guide

As soon as the application is launched, there are two displays of the Nintendo DS in different ways. While the top screen shows the current limits as well as a short usage introduction to the keys available, the lower screen shows the limiters as well as the Qix animation.

Known issues

Version 0.1:

  • Has a similar graphics-memory problem like PolyTouch.
  • When you start Qix, you should immediately see a cyan dot pattern. This pattern is not supposed to be there.
  • If you set the left limiter to 32 or higher values, the dot pattern disappears
  • If you set the lower limiter to exactly 160, the whole screen is filled with cyan lines - nothing else can be seen.

Changelog

0.1 31 August 2008

  • White Qix animation on black lower screen.
  • Red limiters on lower screen.
  • Limiters can be changed via D-Pad.
  • Animation can be paused/unpaused with the Start button.
