Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

* WalrusIRC

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

Various existing games, such as This is the Only Level, Androides, Billybox, Mandragore, Bejeweled, Flappy Bird, Pac-Man and Pac-Attack, were also ported to TI calculators by our users and various retro gaming console emulators (SNES, Turbografx-16, Sega Genesis, Master System, etc) were released for the TI-Nspire CX.

Aside from game development, our participating forum users have released notable tools such as ICE Compiler, Houstontracker 2, CEmu, the C SDK and Libraries for the CE. We also have our share of musicians and pixel artists as well, along with a massive database of MTV Music Generator series songs from the remains of TIMGUL. A lot of new projects are also active in the development section, ranging from new games to programming utilities and 3D engines, so expect new releases at any moment. Make sure to visit the authors' topics to voice your suggestions and encouragements!

We intend to provide a friendly place to discuss your favorite topics, to hang out and to showcase your projects and releases, so hopefully you feel at home here. Registration is free and only takes a few seconds!

UPDATE: Following was an April Fools joke. We are remaining an English website, so don't worry, you won't need to learn French. Fun fact, though: April fools day in French is "Poisson d'Avril" (April Fish), and walruses love fishes and seafood. :walrii:

As you might have noticed, our website logo has changed, now reading "Le Morse de la Prog" instead of "CodeWalrus". Although CodeWalrus is an English-speaking website, the entire staff team speaks French as its native language. Even our Elite Coders, with the exception of Keoni29, speak French as their mother tongue. As this often proved problematic with interactions between members and staff, we had to take a rash decision.

Starting next month, CodeWalrus will become a French-only discussion forum. While old posts will remain in English, new ones will have to go in the off-topic section, prefixed with [EN] tags. During this one month transition, you will still be allowed to use English anywhere on the board while you learn French, and afterward, the use of Google Translate will be tolerated. The website URL will remain intact, although we are not ruling out the possibility of purchasing lemorsedela.prog if .prog domain names ever become a thing.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this might cause. Hopefully this should prove to be an interesting learning experience for our members, though, and eventually improve relationships between our staff and regulars.

Comme vous avez pu le remarquer, le logo de notre site web a changé, maintenant "Le morse de la prog" au lieu de "CodeWalrus". C'est que malgré le fait que CodeWalrus soit un site anglophone, notre équipe au grand complet parlent le français comme langue maternelle. Étant donné les problèmes que cela a causé lors de la communication entre l'équipe du site et nos membres, nous avons du prendre une décision assez difficile.

À partir du mois prochain, CodeWalrus va devenir un site entièrement francophone. Bien que les anciens messages demereront en Anglais, les nouveaux créés dans cette langue devront être postés dans la section hors-sujet, avec un préfix [EN]. Pendant cette transition d'un mois, il vous sera permis d'utiliser l'Anglais partout sur le site et nous tolérerons l'utilisation du traducteur Google par la suite pendant votre apprentissage du Français. L'addresse du site demeurera intact, mais nous n'écartons pas la possibilité que le nom de domaine lemorsedela.prog soit acheté si jamais l'extension .prog pour les noms de domaine voyait le jour.

Nous nous excusons des désagréments que cela pourrait causer. Nous espérons tout de même que vous retirerez des bienfaits de cette expérience d'apprentissage, et que cela améliorera la communication entre nos membres et le staff.

Due to lack of users and the fact that almost everybody who use #CodeWalrus IRC channel are already on EFnet,  Omninet or using one of the two forum shoutboxes, we have come to the decision to discontinue Freenode support and linking for #CodeWalrus. From now on, in order to use the #CodeWalrus IRC channel, you will have to use one of the following method:

-Connect to EFnet then join #CodeWalrus
-Connect to Omninet then join #CodeWalrus
-WalrusIRC (main website IRC shoutbox)
-OmnomIRC (alternate one available via your profile group membership settings)

The IRC relay bot that links all the four above will also be renamed to something shorter to improve readability of IRC conversations when chatting from an IRC client. But it will no longer connect to the Freenode network, so anybody who joins #CodeWalrus from Freenode from now on will not be able to chat with us anymore.

We invite everyone who idles in the Freenode #CodeWalrus channel to switch over to one of the EFnet or Omninet servers (although this should not be a serious issue since almost all of you already use other IRC channels on those networks or are using WalrusIRC).

Tonight marks the arrival of the CodeWalrus Programming Newsletter! Those will summarize some of our big happenings, as well as some other major community material such as new calculator releases. The first edition that just came out covers the Winter season that just ended and there will be a newsletter at the end of every season, meaning that the 2nd edition will come out at the end of June.

The CodeWalrus Programming Newsletter - Winter 2015 Edition

A new sub-forum that will contain all newsletter editions was created here:
Link to the Winter 2015 edition of the CWPN:

(Due to how the site was setup before, members who have signed up prior a certain date were subscribed by default. If you do not wish to receive such newsletter via e-mail, go to your profile, click Notifications then uncheck the forum announcement options. Thanks to a SMF plugin, people who sign up normally now have the option to disable announcements from the start.)

Calculators in General
The TI-84 Plus CE, which replaces the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, has been released and various TI community members such as tr1p1ea, author of xLIBC, have finally gotten their calculator in the mail!

This means that other stores will most likely have it in stock soon and eventually the new school device will make its way to brick and mortar stores. The MSRP is $129.99 and the calculator features the following:

-eZ80 processor
-150 KB of RAM (huge improvement over previous TI-84 Plus series calculators)
-3 MB of Flash
-320x240 color LCD that supports 16bpp, 8bpp and more
-OS with more features
-Considerably faster screen refreshing (especially in menus and the program editor)
-BASIC, C and ASM support (a third-party language called ICE is also available and is similar to Axe on monochrome models)

However, no SDK yet and some ASM functionalities are rumored to not be available. The biggest advantage of this new calculator model will lie in the much faster screen and larger user RAM, so pure TI-BASIC and pure ASM programmers will benefit the most. UPDATE (November 11th 2016): The calculator supports BASIC, ASM, C and a third-party language called ICE, all in 8xp program format. Flash APPs are not available, as TI has decided to not release the 2048 bits RSA key and current technology makes it impossible to factor a key this large. But this should not be a problem, as people managed to find workarounds, such as for parser hooks.

-TI-BASIC: TI-83/84+/CE Basic documentation
-Hybrid TI-BASIC: Sprites v3.3 | CE Textlib
-ASM: eZ80 assembly documentation for the CE
-C: C Programming Toolchain, libraries and resources for the TI-84 Plus CE
-ICE: ICE Compiler and its documentation

-Sprite graphics converters: ConvPNG (for use in ASM/C/ICE) | Sprite Ripper (for use in TI-BASIC with Sprites v3.3)
-Emulation: CEmu emulator (requires a ROM dump from a real calculator)

I invite owners of the TI-84 Plus CE (as well as owners of the TI-83 Premium CE when it comes out) to share their discoveries about this new calculator series in this topic or on the forums, be it ASM tricks, bugs or other useful information.
