Only the up to date emulators should be added I think. Less problems for the users.

Quick question, sorry if I overlooked the answer somewhere (this is about adding Firebird to the ticalc.org emulators chart): Is this for all Nspire models or particular ones? i.e., out of the TI-Nspire, TI-Nspire CAS, and TI-Nspire CX pages, should this be listed on all of them or just some?

If I recall correctly, this emulator is pretty much the successor of nspire_emu and replaces it, so it should be compatible with clickpad/touchpad models (CAS/non-CAS). @Vogtinator would need to confirm, though, in case he killed grayscale calc support.

Firebird supports all Nspire models except for the CAS+ (which nobody uses anyway, but readding support wouldn't be too hard).

Only issue is that there is no keypad for the clickpad implemented, which the classic CAS OSs somehow need. Classic non-CAS OSs work just fine.

Aren't keys scrambled on the non-CAS clickpad when used with a Touchpad, though? I seem to recall some keypad combinations on real hardware that had similar problems in the past.

Yes, the CAS non-CX OSs are practically unusuable on firebird right now.

Okay, done! http://www.ticalc.org/programming/emulators/software.html

Let me know if anything needs to be changed or corrected.

Oh, I thought people were recommending that I only add Firebird. Looking back at the previous posts, though, I think I just misunderstood.

Looking here, though, it seems to say there are no official “stable” binary releases yet. Perhaps we should wait until then? (Though there appear to be what I guess would be considered “development snapshot” releases for Windows.)

Also for getting an Nspire ROM, see here: https://github.com/nspire-emus/firebird/wiki/First-Time-Setup (I noticed the ticalc tutorial didn't have an nspire section on that page)

Thanks! I'll look into that.

@Travis IMHO, I think CEmu is stable enough to be included, plus it's the only community CE emulator available. After all, WabbitEmu was even less stable when it first got included.

Sounds reasonable enough; I've added it.

Also, I reformatted the whole table because it was growing too many columns and starting to get really scrunched (it was originally designed back when there were only a handful of calc models). Now, the supported calcs are simply listed in a row without trying to vertically align each model. The drawback is that you can no longer as conveniently scan down a column to find emulators for a particular model. Would this be a problem for anyone?

I like it better this way actually, plus now most people knows that their browsers have a search function with CTRL+F, so they can just type 85, for example, and it will highlight all 85 emulators. The recommended emulators are definitively the most up-to-date for each category. There are other more obscure emulators such as KarmTI, PindurTI and CalcforgeEmu, but they're outdated.


By the way, something cool about TilEm is that you can change the LCD colors as you wish. @Vogtinator should add this to Firebird Emu for grayscale TI-Nspire emulation in the options, perhaps allowing the user to also change individual shades of gray if he wishes, so that old Ndless/Lua games designed for the grayscale models can be emulated in colors in the style of SNES Super Game Boy, Gameboy Player, TI-Boy CSE, etc.
