Since October 2014, our active members and staff have released several new games for the Sega Dreamcast, Panasonic 3DO, Atari 2600, TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus CE, TI-Nspire CX, TI-89, TI-92, TI Voyage 200, HP Prime, Casio fx-9860G, Android phones and computers. This includes First Fantasy: Mana Force, Sorcery of Uvutu, Reuben Quest: Lost Between Times, Oiram CE (a Super Mario clone), SQRXZ CE, KillMinds, VVSSV, Line++, Lazer 2, GalagACE and Wal-Rush! 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.

Calculators in General
Texas Instruments officially announced today its new "TI-84 Plus CE" calculator for back to school 2015 discovered in a previous news, which will be logically demonstrated at the T3 international conference in March 2015 at Fort Worth in Texas. Availability is scheduled for spring 2015.

If we understood well at the journées APMEP and the salon Educatec-Educatice last November, France will get a specific model, the "TI-83 Premium CE". Remains to be seen whether this will be a simple francisation the TI-84 Plus CE keyboard or if there is something else lurking back there which could justify the use of the 'Premium' word...
In all cases these models are sharing the 'CE' suffix and apparently developed simultaneously. So they should share many similarities and the following lines should be valid for both models.

The official page therefore presents a calculator equipped with a 16-bit 320x240 pixels backlit color display, the same as the one in the TI-Nspire CX and TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition. The operating system clearly seems to be an evolution of the one in the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, since we're noticing exactly the same user interface. As a consequence, one remaining question would be whether the defects of this previous model have been fixed or not, and in particular its extremely slowness due to using the same processor as the one used in the latest monochrome TI-84, a z80 to 15MHz, with a display needing (320×240×16)/(96×64×1)=200 times more data to be processed for each refresh.

The model is described as 30% lighter than the older TI-84 and much thinner. Indeed, the AAA batteries disappear in favor of a rechargeable battery.

It will be available in different colors.

USB connectivity is present, this time on the side of the calculator, with a mini USB A/B connector, together with a charging LED.




The Vernier website, a long time partner of Texas Instruments, has also been updated and tells us a little more about this new model.

On one hand, TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition applications do not seem compatible with the TI-84 Plus CE. Indeed, in order to use Vernier sensors you'll need to have the new EasyData 5.0 application. EasyData 4.0 equipping the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition would therefore be incompatible, which may be an indication of more or less interesting OS and hardware changes. If in addition we made the connection with the 4.x numbering of the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition operating systems, one could infer that the new TI-84 Plus CE will use a new 5.0 version of the operating system.

Furthermore, it is stated that the TI-84 Plus CE will not work with Vernier LabPro and TI-CBL2 interfaces, nor with TI-Navigator hubs. This could indicate the removal of the mini-jack 2.5 historical connector which was the only way to connect these devices. By extension, TI-Robot and TI-Keyboard would also be incompatible.

Vernier also tells us about something else, the "TI-Charging Station CE", which can store up to 10 TI-84 Plus CE while recharging their batteries, apparently using contacts which must be located on the bottom of the calculators - ideal for classroom use.

I created a new topic for this rather than using the previous POTY discussion thread, because it wouldn't have let me publish this post on the front page otherwise. But tonight, the ticalc.org POTY 2014 results have been published!

Results: http://www.ticalc.org/community/awards/poty/2014.html
News: http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148752.html

I would like to say congratulations to all the participants who contributed such notable programs for 2014, but especially the winners of each Program of the Year 2014 category: Sorunome, KermMartian, Vogtinator and SirCmpwn!

For the TI-83+/84+ series, the winning program was the ASM remake of my 2005 hybrid BASIC RPG called Reuben Quest: The Lost Mirror, the first ASM RPG release in almost a decade. Ironically, like in 2005 with the original Reuben series, the two 2014 remakes were competing against each others. For the TI-84+CSE, after a tight contest with Solitaire, it is finally JezzBall that won. For the TI-Nspire category, another Minecraft clone, this time in 3D and by Vogtinator, has won. Finally, for the new multiplatform category, KnightOS Kernel won.


We hope to see more awesome programs from TI community members this year. Don't forget, as always, that when you release something big, to let ticalc.org staff know in case they don't see it, and of course make sure to upload it in their archives. :D

Site-related
Over two months after being founded and 7 weeks after its forum started operating in private mode, CodeWalrus finally opens its doors to public!

<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/AZVnpnxGG_w?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

It all started early in June 2014, when the idea of creating this new forum came to birth in a discussion between me and pimathbrainiac. On October 24th, it finally started for real, with us two, along with aeTIos, juju and Streetwalrus as founders. Many reasons were behind the starting of this site, first of all bringing more diversity to the TI community, so you might notice that some things operate a bit differently around here sometimes, but we would like to welcome you to CodeWalrus forums, a community for fans of mobile, calculator (mostly TI-84 Plus, TI-Nspire and HP Prime) and computer programming, as well as hardware, retro gaming and art! :)

We encourage you to introduce yourself so that people know more about your hobbies or yourself. :) More features will be unlocked in your forum profile as you post more messages (such as the ability to setup an avatar, signature or to send private messages).

If you need help using the forum software, we have an help section available for you. We also have an about page with more information about CodeWalrus itself and you can review the rules at any time here. Should you need help on something missing from there or want to give feedback, feel free to post in the site discussion board. 

Once you are set, head to the forum index or the Latest Activity section. We also have a few games available for download, all of which are made by our users, as well as a music store. An IRC chat room called #CodeWalrus is also available, where our members hang out, and can be reached from EFnet, Omninet, Freenode, using an IRC client of your choice or the website client called OmnomIRC.

You are also free to share the website with your friends using the codes at the bottom of each page and don't forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!

Hello, and welcome to Project Periodical Edition 2! Instead of being semi-monthly and including z80 or non-z80 programs, this edition and all future editions will be on the 1st of every month and include projects of every platform, on every major, predominately english-speaking forum with a focus on TI. And also on CodeWalrus
What does this mean? Omnimaga, Cemetech, and CodeWalrus projects will all be listed here, in one place, with links to every thread on every site where the projects are hosted. Also this means no screenies in the thread due to the sheer number of projects being posted, sorry D:
Also projects made specifically for contests and joke projects/programs are automatically disqualified from being in Project Periodical for space's sake (read: pimath is lazy and there are a ton of Contest #13 entries).

Now that that is out of the way, to the projects:
