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.

In order to make TIMID music work I have to do 2 things:
1. Make interrupts not corrupt ram.
2. Write a midi → my file format converter.
If you like my work, why not give me an internet?

Do you think you would be able to support music that doesn't require external hardware by the way (even if quickly alternating between notes to mimic multi-channel like in some c64 songs)? The thing is that other big sites will be more likely to feature it if it pushes the hardware to its limits without external assistance. Also more people would be able to use that feature.

TIMID support would be nice, though, for those who are willing to build the extra equipment for the resulting enhanced music.

Can't do. It would make the game sluggish and unplayable.

What about making such feature only work on 15 MHz models?

Also I think this was the 1000th post O.O

That could be a bad move for the guys who only have 83... By the way, what's TIMID?

I could try that. I will ask calc84 if I can use his music engine from steins gate 8bit.

TIMID is a sound device that hooks up to the linkport of a calculator. It's basically an arduino with a SID soundchip emulator on it.

Oooh, I want one! Is there a tracker TIMID compatible or something in the looks? Actually that was one of the things I thought when figuring how the game including HBE could be done, a link port including a little soundchip which would read sound stream from a SD card.

There was one in the works, but I am not actively working on it. I might pick that up again when I finish Hero Core (or if the Midi converter does not work out I'll have to make the tracker to create the music for Hero Core)

Well the tracker isn't a hardware issue. :P You just need to write an Axe GUI. :)

I have written a barebones tracker interface as well as the spi communication protocol for communicating with the chip. I don't remember how much of it works already tho.
If anyone wants to continue working on that I would highly appreciate :)

I don't have any spares, but this will work on any arduino based on the ATmega168 or 328 chip, so you can get yourself one of those to test it with.

Do you have a site where I could get them cheaper than on the official site without cutting off the quality?
