Title: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on November 20, 2014, 02:27:09 am
To avoid having to create a sub-forum just for introductions and to prevent cluttering the off-topic section, I thought I would make a topic just so that people can introduce themselves in it. It can be bumped as you wish later, I guess.

Anyway I'm far from new in the TI community, but yeah since this site is new, to sum and start things up, I ran Omnimaga, which I founded, from 2001 to 2011, then a short while after retiring I became news editor there until about September 2014, then in October I co-founded this website. I did TI-83+ BASIC for almost 11 years if we exclude hiatuses, some Axe in early 2010 and 2013 and nowadays I mostly do HP PPL on the HP Prime calculator. I also create electronic (semi power-metal style or dance) music since 2002, although I stopped between 2004 and 2006.

So yeah, I guess I'll introduce myself.

I've been programming calcs for almost 8 years although I went online only 2 years ago when I joined Omnimaga. I'm cofounder of CodeWalrus and I'm currently working on Pokespire and Illusiat 11 Axe with aeTIos.

Post by: xlibman on November 20, 2014, 02:18:08 pm
Wait, you started calc programming before you were born? O.O Just kidding, but starting 8 years ago would mean you started as young as annoyingcalc on Omnimaga did, although unlike everyone who started under 13 you didn't stop at 13  <_< (people who are 10-12 tend to have a very short interest span compared to older people)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Juju on November 20, 2014, 05:30:03 pm
Oh hi I'm Juju and I'm awesome. Been programming calcs since 2005 or so, but only been active online since 2009, then joined Omnimaga in early 2010, then co-founded CodeWalrus in the end of 2014. So yeah, been a while.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: aeTIos on November 20, 2014, 06:56:53 pm
Watashi wa aeTIos desu *crackles* Oh, sorry. Apparently my Japanese voice bank was still activated...
So yeah, I'm aeTIos. Started programming calcs once I got my 84+ in august 2010, joined Omnimaga a few weeks later, got obsessed with programming (never really released anything, though :|). After a long break from programming, I now write programs in C for the Nspire. Also, I'm cofounder of Codewalrus.

I'm pimath, and I lost the game.
Also I am a cofounder of CodeWalrus, and writer of VVVVVV ports to Nspire and z80, as well as nReuben

Hi I am keoni29. I started programming calcs back in 2009 when I got my first TI84+. In 2012 I joined omnimaga, because I had a question regarding sound generation. I have been obsessed by calculator music/sound ever since.

I enjoy making music, writing software for obsolete hardware. I am also a bit of an electronics tinkerer.

Dangit pimath.

Also Keoni you're more than "a bit" of an electronics tinkerer. :P Your level exceeds mine by a huge amount.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on November 22, 2014, 12:13:59 am
By the way do you guys now do a lot of Z80 assembly or do you still primarily use Axe? I know some Axe coders learned ASM but still prefer Axe, but others have moved on to pure ASM over time.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Keoni29 on November 22, 2014, 09:21:27 am
I use axe because it is easier to write oncalc. I have written some bits of z80 assembly, but not full programs. It's probably because you can get more done with less code in axe.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on November 22, 2014, 09:39:04 am
Actually you got a point. In fact you need even less code than BASIC sometimes (grayscale, for example). You can alao still access features like pointers normally only available in Z80 but with less freedom than Z80.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 22, 2014, 09:16:12 pm
I use Axe with a little asm when I need to do some low level optimizations (ie map smooth scrolling can be extremely fast if part of the horizontal scrolling code is written in asm).
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: aeTIos on November 22, 2014, 11:13:14 pm
I still only do Axe. I can write a little bit of ASM though, it's not hard but you need to keep track of what you're doing .
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on November 23, 2014, 07:17:14 am
One thing that kinda annoys me in Axe (Idk if it's the same in ASM because of how fast it can get) is how maps scroll like twice faster when aligned vertically in multiples of 8 pixels than when it's not. >.<
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Streetwalrus on November 23, 2014, 12:16:36 pm
Yes, that's because it doesn't use asm tricks that it's this slow. :P

Hello everyone, your favorite LobsternDwarf is here!  I've been programming TI or Casio calcs for years already and joins Omnimaga in 2011.

I have a small calculator.collection, from the Graph35+ tweaked into a fx-9860 to an Nspire CX CAS (don't forget my 84 nor my Casio CG-20).

I enjoy making projects I mostly won't finish but some of them will have at least big progress.planned once I get to them.

Hope I'll get along with the people I already know here or the new members I don't know!

Oh, I just love introductions. :P

Hey everyone, I'm Scipi (some of the older members might still remember me as HOMER-16). I've tried and failed to learn calc programming numberous times, however I am a quite competent C++ and Java programmer. Most of my projects are computer games, and maybe some Arduino stuff soon. :3
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on November 30, 2014, 03:53:46 am
Heya Scipi, nice to see you among us. May The Game be with you. Yep I still remember the HOMER-16 nick :D

Also glad you are planning to do Arduino stuff. I know Juju and Keoni29 sometimes does and Juju also has that board made by TI that is similar. As for computer games I can't wait to see new stuff too from you. Feel free to showcase them in the non-calc sections (and on Omni) whenever you feel ready :).



On a side note I hope none of the non-staff members hate green... O.O

I learned recently my local Radioshack sells peripherals for Arduino boards, and I already know a little about how to program them since I programmed mine to control my brother's 3D printer a few months back. There's a few projects I can think of that I'd like to try out. >:D

I also have a few comp projects in the works. At the very least, I'll be sharing my Ludum Dare entry for this coming weekend ^_^

On a side note I hope none of the non-staff members hate green... O.O

Green is my favorite color. :)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on November 30, 2014, 05:24:43 am
With what happened with certain members on other forums in the past, I doubt regular members will ever have the option to delete their posts here in the future. :P

But yeah I'm fixing it now :)

As for green I was asking because when I told people about this website, they don't necessarily know how it will look like once they get access. So sometimes it could be like "OMG I want to join I like the idea!!1!1one" then once they see the site they are scared for life. :P

And wow I didn't know Radioshack sold Arduino stuff. Over here we got The Source, which is inferior to Radioshack IMHO (other than the fact they don't "force" you to give your social security number, home address, size of underwear and sexual orientation for any purchase) because they have less stuff and wires are overpriced. Radioshack in Canada was completely replaced by The Source by Circuit City in 2005 (The Source after Circuit City went under)

Post by: Scipi on November 30, 2014, 05:51:06 am
I think it's part of an incentive to get children more into hardware stuff. The one near me has an entire section dedicated towards the stuff, including a few books with some interesting code examples. They don't seem to hold back on the C++ or oversimplify, which is nice for a change. Once I get a better paying job I expect to dabble a bit, at the very least.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on November 30, 2014, 06:10:03 am
Ah right, plus they sell some children toys like miniature copters and stuff. I wish that The Source was as much into it, because atm they look more like Best Buy but 100 times smaller >.<

Hi I'm told I should totally post here and stuff...
Anyways I program calculators and computers and stuff, and I play way too much osu! and post videos about it on youtube. Also I seem to write extremely long and drawn-out posts for topics that don't necessarily require it because wooooo typing. Oh yeah I do CSE stuff, I made an ASM 2048 clone and snake game, and working on peggle off and on right now.
Oh and you should totally go here http://potc.unknownloner.com/ because prelude of the chambered is cool, and playing it without java is cooler :P

Hiya Unknown. Nice to have you aboard. Also some other users here are into MLP or used to be so they'll probably like your Youtube channel. :P (although that last link was insane O.O)


Also I tried the Snake game a while ago and it was pretty cool. I only tried Kerm's 2048, though. As for Peggle I'll need to check the topic on Cemetech when I have some time. I didn't play that game and I often confuse it with Pegs, but I remember Builderboy made a version for the 83+ a long while ago. :)

On the other hand, I got an HP Prime :trollface:.

Yup, Linux all the way! Been using it as my main OS for over a year now I'm happy to say.
As for peggle, I don't have a thread about it since I've been focusing on putting pretty things on screen rather than gameplay (also lots of math code). You can have a picture though :)

For the most part I'm going to be drawing them all myself, but basing them off the originals. I have to draw them myself to get them looking halfway decent because I'm going with low color palettes (4 or 16 color for most of it) so it doesn't just eat up tons of space.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on December 02, 2014, 02:35:17 pm
Ah ok, although from experience, converting to 16 colors when I only use 1 color hue in a sprite is generally not too hard, like with circle/bullet icons. It's more with larger graphics that it becomes a problem. It should save a lot of space, though. I remember with xLIBC that Reuben graphics took like 56 KB of space or something (7 appvars worth of sprites). >.<

I am a V200 coder on Omnimaga. I made a tutorial site last year (almost exactly one year ago) in school called "Agranovskiy." I named it that because we planned for it to go on agranovskiy.net (a site my friend used for TSA web design, now the content's gone).

I started coding last year for PA-TSA calculator robots, and now have expanded to using TI BASIC for more useful purposes. I plan not to stop coding at 13, as it has become at least 75 percent of my life :P

I made Dodge with T.Wang (now inactive due to high school busy-ness) and then made Dodge 68k by myself, which is on Omni and I won't post here (yet, I still haven't decided) because the banner says "TI-84+"

Hey, first member of the year :3
Really? That doesn't seem right.
Heya and welcome to the forums. Actually yeah a lot of members who got approved tonight signed up since December. They just got approved simultaneously tonight. A total of 31 signed up since then.  :) I can't wait to see what you have in store for us :)

Hey guys, I'm Art_of_camelot. Most of you already know me, but I'm support staff over at Omnimaga.  I never seem to do much in the way of programming, but I always have ideas. :P Anyho, I'm very interested to see what Codewalrus adds to the community. I'm sure I'll look around more when I have time tomorrow, but I fear sleep is calling to me shortly. Looking forward to a great year in 2015!

Nice to see you around Art of Camelot. :D And yeah the idea in general is that we wanted to offer something different while also offering a place to showcase projects. Hopefully it makes the community more diverse. :)

I am a V200 coder on Omnimaga. I made a tutorial site last year (almost exactly one year ago) in school called "Agranovskiy." I named it that because we planned for it to go on agranovskiy.net (a site my friend used for TSA web design, now the content's gone).

I started coding last year for PA-TSA calculator robots, and now have expanded to using TI BASIC for more useful purposes. I plan not to stop coding at 13, as it has become at least 75 percent of my life :P

I made Dodge with T.Wang (now inactive due to high school busy-ness) and then made Dodge 68k by myself, which is on Omni and I won't post here (yet, I still haven't decided) because the banner says "TI-84+"
Welcome to you as well. You can post Casio and 68K programs if you want to by the way, even if the banner doesn't include them. It's just that our most active topics are the ones in the banner. Any calculator contribution is welcome (of course our members love quality projects and games, so that will most likely draw more attention, but you can also ask for help or get some on other existing forums. :) Anyway I hope you enjoy your stay and feel free to look around! :D

Well the 68k community is mostly dead anyways.
One of my reasons for learning 68k programming: it's mostly dead :P

And I dunno if Dodge counts as quality.

I'm Travis/tev from ticalc.org, here to continue loosely following stuff that's going on in the community, on top of all the other forums/IRC channels I spend way too much time on already. :P

Haven't done much calc stuff lately, unfortunately; too many other projects/hobbies are always in the way. I want to do everything at once but can't. And I haven't even done much “project” stuff lately, I've mostly been messing around doing random things like reading, listening to chiptunes, keeping ticalc.org running, going to sleep and messing with my mind in lucid dreams, etc. Oh, well!

Hi everyone !

I'm Dark Storm, from the French website "Planète Casio".
So my hobbies are like you hacking calcs and programming my fx-9860Gii. My best achievement is Fruit Ninja on a Casio calc, as Deep Tought for the TI.

I hope this forum will be as active as best days of Omnimaga :)

Yee you soon,

Happy new year everyone! I'm Cumred_Snektron, or Robin irl.
I do Ti (84+) basic and axe on-calc and mainly Java (MC mods, apps, lwjgl), z80 and
GLSL on my pc. I also know some C, PHP, Javascript
(http://quantuminfinity.net/MazeDweller/ (http://quantuminfinity.space/MazeDweller/) my JS game of last year),
Lua and Brainbleep (censor pls). My friend TehCoder lead me to Omnimaga, but i decided
it would be better to start with the new forum :).

Post by: matrefeytontias on January 01, 2015, 01:40:57 pm
Alright, apparently there's that trend of introducing yourself over and over :P

I'm matrefeytontias, also known as matref since people can't write my full name right. I'm French, 17, and I started programming at 10 (it's going to be my job, I guarantee you) with C and later C++. One day I stumbled upon that Axe tutorial by Kindermoumoute I later helped redacted, then I decided to wait for highschool and buy an 83+ to do Axe 'cause it's awesome. Hell I did. Later I started programming for the TI-Nspire with C/C++ for Ndless. I like to believe I'm quite good at Axe and ASM for the 83+/84+ and C/C++ for the Nspire.

You might know me for having written games such as Jetpack 8x+, Gravity Walls, Super Crate Box (only the calc version duh), IkarugaX, nKaruga, nSpeedX 3D and some other little things ; and utilities (mostly axioms) such as AxeJh3D, AxeDCS and WiredWorks. 5 of them were featured on ticalc, and all of them can be found there on my profile page (http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/authors/112/11202.html).

So yeah, let's see what you guys have got.  >:D

Also regardless of if you do computer, Android or calculator projects you can still showcase them to us on the forums. If they are good enough and might be developed for a while they might even become featured in their own sub-forum on the forum index. :)

Also don't forget to like us on Facebook, even though the trend of CodeWalrus members is to not have a Facebook account at all. :P https://www.facebook.com/CodeWalrusFans
And Twitter, of course: https://twitter.com/codewalr_us

Most of you probably already know me. I program for nspire in lua and I'm currently working on Portal NSpire.
My calculator is damaged so I can't transfer files until I fix it.

Welcome to you two as well. Also LDStudios I hope you can get your calc fixed soon. So many Nspires have failed over the last few years compared to Z80 models.

And annoyingcalc I hope you stick around for a while. If you do some Minecraft stuff you should probably share pictures of your creations in the Minecraft sub-forum on Omni, since it's there for a reason :P, and here as well I guess :)

Post by: emgoz on January 01, 2015, 11:16:35 pm
Hey guys,

I'm emgoz or formerly known MGOS and I'll be here now and then :) I'm probably not very active in calc programming since I don't have a programmable calc anymore (we had to return them since they were property of my school) and at university programmable/graphing calcs are also forbidden in exams, so I didn't buy a new one. I'm studying electrical engineering and information technology at the moment, so what I do educationally is pretty much what I enjoy to do as a hobby but rather learning it from the ground up. I still do some computer programming and a bit of android (mostly Processing for android) and hardware development and hardware hacking. I got lots of finished and unfinished projects but I often don't have the time to write about them. However, I started a blog (http://emgoz.blogspot.de) (which is almost empty at the moment but I plan on posting more soon).

Heya and welcome to the forums. :) I'm glad that you decided to join despite your departure from the TI calculator scene a few months ago. Keoni29 does some electronic-related stuff with 80's hardware and some of us works on non-calc projects too so hopefully you feel at home here.  :)

Do you make music? I think I recall seeing a post from you saying you did some, but I might be confusing this with another user.

Yes that's me :) I've been a keyboardist and pianist for almost 10 years now and last year I started teaching myself how to play the electric bass. I also do some electronic music on pc. Sadly I didn't release any new full songs since Glance of the Night (Edit: I'd like to insert a link to youtube but it always embeds it instead of just hyperlinks it) but hopefully there is new stuff to come soon. :)

Aah cool to hear. And yeah the forums does that by default right now. I found an alternate Youtube mod somewhere, though, that could probably replace what we got and not do this, though, but I need to check if it works with https links first.

You can still make a topic in the music section, though. :P

Post by: CKH4 on January 02, 2015, 05:31:24 am
Hi, I'm CKH4 (same as on omnimaga and cemetech). I started calculator coding when I was ≈12 years old. I'm self taught in basic and have been coding for almost four years (although the first 1.5 shouldn't count).

I am interested in architecture, advanced computer graphics, 3d rendering and low resolution computer sprites.

I have (sort of) participated in two calculator projects not of my own. I did the sprites for Portal CSE and gave Ldstudios permission to use them for portal nSpire.

I like parentheses. (and puppies and kittens)

I made my own game in basic and am starting to learn advanced concepts (size optimization using math). I'll upload it eventually.

I also made a compilation of solvers, but I'm not sure if that is considered a cheat tool (I know that I didn't use it to).

Cool to hear. As for the solvers they are allowed where programs are allowed and are fine to post on calc forums, but since there are over 200 of them on ticalc.org already then they might not garner as much interest.

Hello everyone! I mostly frequent Cemetech, but I decided to drop in and see what all the excitement is about. And I mostly prefer direct z80 asm, as I found it can be very versatile. I am currently working on a Portal clone for the CSE, and have many other completed projects as well. So far this is looking like a solid site; best of luck! :)

Post by: Agothro on January 04, 2015, 04:16:43 am
Agothro here.

Got a TI-83+ (yep, not an 84+, an 83+) back 3 years ago for school. I learned you could play games on it, so first I typed in a BASIC program of hundreds of lines to get it working with pong. That was the beginning.

For a while I did this until my little brother took the batteries out of my 83+, meaning my hard-earned slightly modded game was gone for good. While I never had a fancy USB plugin kit, I soon started a new quest: borrowing a friend's 84+. I did this and discovered the USB support and the great amount of space, as well as fancier spect. Never have bought one, despite the fact that they're only like $5 more than an 83+.

I found MirageOS and later DoorsCS, and started using them (archive everything folks). I found Pokemon Topaz, as well as ZTetris (killed at that game in math class, my scores were in the tens of thousands)

As for my own games, I've fiddled around with doing so before but have never had success beyond a simple program where you bounce a ball against a wall. One day I want to figure out how to use Axe. I figure that assembly is beyond arcane for somebody such as I (programming experience in C(++) and, before that, Pascal) so I'm not trying (yet).
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on January 04, 2015, 04:49:18 am
Heya Agothro and nice to see you here. :) Sorry to hear about the loss of your program. Normally the 83+ keeps programs intact even after removing the AAA batteries, but it depends how old the lithium battery is. I wish you good luck in programming and feel free to ask for help if you need any :)

To be fair, Omni has a wide selection of computer sub-forums. It's just that CodeWalrus only has two calculator sub-forums excluding the featured projects so it looks like there is more emphasis on computer stuff. That said, many users are into computer programming, which helps too.

And lol I wish my music sold this much. I get approximately 1 album sale a month in average and when I do a new release the max I ever got in a month was 8 IIRC.

Lol at your intro beginning XD, and welcome to the forums by the way :)

So I assume that since your parties don't involve yourself moving much, it won't look like this (http://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=156.0)? :trollface:

hiya and welcome to CW forums. Just as an advice, we discourage the use of flashy avatars/signatures, since they tend to be too distracting. It's also required to keep them small, preferably under 50 KB, since many forum users use dial-up or bandwidth-capped mobile connections. I would recommend slowing it down to like 4-5 FPS or replacing it  :)

Hi,

Some people probably already know me from Omnimaga/Cemetech/TIPlanet but I think I still should introduce myself.
I am a big Nintendo fan and made Pokemon Topaz in 2011, now working on Super Smash Bros. Open when I have time.

I know Axe, Asm (enough to make AudaciTI but don't ask me too much), C and Java.

Running on Windows 8.1 (because 7 didn't want to work properly with drivers) and Lubuntu on both my main laptops.

I have 9 graphing calcs : 83+, 84+SE, 76.fr, CX CAS, Prizm, 84+CSE, Nspire Proto, 83+.fr USB, 92+.

That's probably not hard but I never tried. Matref can tell you more though, he made some axioms, from his code and also from other people's code.

As I found this site, it had 18 members. That was only 2 weeks ago!! Never saw sites growing THAT fast!!!

So, I am not really new to calculators, I am programming them for about 1 1/2 Years. I am a german student so excuse my english, please.
I program in Ti-Basic, and I do not do any music but I like it.
My calculator is a Ti-83+ which I got at school for my math.
So that was my introduction, I have nothing else to say... But a question:
How can I upload my game? :D

EDIT: I mean uploading to ticalc.org and posting a likn on this forum is some kind of ad for me... Can't I upload anything directly here?

hiya and welcome here :D. Actually one reason why the site member count jumped so fast is because on opening day, 31 members were awaiting approval. A lot joined the week after, though. :P

Don't worry about your English, it's pretty fine so far. Also most CodeWalrus members don't speak English as their native language anyway. It's fine if you post links to your programs by the way, and once you reach 5 posts you can even upload them directly.

Hello all! I've been dabbling in the TI calc community since 1998, primarily with the TI-83/84 series, although I did spend some time on the TI-86 as well. I was very on-and-off from late 2002 up until early 2012, but since then I've been coding more often again and staying in touch. I live in Melbourne, Australia.

My two most recent projects are Alien Breed 5 (currently working on v2.0, project topics can be found on Cemetech (http://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9514) & Omnimaga (https://www.omnimaga.org/ti-z80-calculator-projects/alien-breed-5-episode-ii-evolution/)) for the TI-83+/84+ monochrome calculators, and Spaze Invaders for the TI-84+CSE (available here on ticalc.org (http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/459/45929.html)), a port of Hannes Edfeldt's version for the TI-83.

Aside from calculator related activities, you'll often find me jumping out of airplanes or creating lots of noise on my drum kit. If you're into heavy rock / post-hardcore type music, you can check out my band Belle Haven (https://www.facebook.com/bellehaven), we have our debut album coming out this year :) The video clip from the first single is on Youtube (search for "belle haven hunt for health").

And yep I know Belle Haven. I still wish you had the money and support to do a world tour and play in some small venues including over here. :)

I haven't met tr1p1ea in person as of yet, although I'm sure we'll get around to it one day. We only live just over an hour's drive from each other :P

I'll have a beta release of AB5 out shortly, so yeah sure if you've got time to play around with it that would be awesome!

We recently signed a record deal in Canada, so the record will be released there and potentially we might look to do a trip to Canada in 2016 depending on how well the record sells, so fingers crossed!

Aah that would be nice. Hopefully local stores have the album, although like with Rhapsody of Fire I am betting it will be more expensive due to import charges. Archambault will most likely have it, but most HMV stuff is backordered now so you have to ask a clerk since the store is always out of stock on everything not mainstream.

Just make sure that you won't skip Quebec City nor play in the middle of nowhere, lol. Dragonforce skipped us twice in a row now and only played in Montreal D: . Not sure if such show would gather an intense crowd since people would be new to it but it would definitively be a good discovery for those who listen to that type of metal :)

Heya and nice to see you in the TI community again. (although we aren't just a TI website :P) Those projects seems pretty nice and I am curious about what you have in store for us with the 84+CSE. There's a new calc coming out which is about twice faster than the CSE and it's called the TI-84 Plus CE. It uses an ez80 processor but it's supposed to be compatible. :)

As for that traffic light app at first I was scared it was to control street lights via some hacking. I was gonna say "Bad assemblybandit :P". Seems pretty nifty, though :)

Nice computer case as well :D

So far, it seems like they listened to the many complains about slow typing and screen refreshes. It is not perfect, but at least screen refreshes much faster from the videos now. It's also still Z80 compatible and it still supports ASM. Also it has 150 KB of user RAM so it will help a lot.

First off I was never a forum person before and I don't like trying to jump into large communitiews but I founds this site looking for info on the TI83+CE and saw that it was pretty new so I decided to give it a shot. About me: I've been programming for the last 10 years and have done everything from making games to writing emulators and even a bit of that hacky hack. Recently I've been very interested in making SNES ROM hacks, mainly Super Mario world. even more recently it reminded me of how fun it was messing with TI's calculators. I started learning to make asm programs and never really got far because I didnt have enough time. Now I've started learning again and that is part of why I ended up finding this place. I really want to learn more about writing assembler code and thought this might be a good place to ask questions maybe with all the other TI developers here. I'm also an osu! player I also noticed a couple osu players here which surprises me, I haven't ever really seen any outside of osu itself even though there are 5 million players.

Post by: xlibman on January 19, 2015, 05:14:47 am
Hiya and glad to have you around here. I hope you enjoy your stay even if you are not much into forums. :)

Actually outside France we will get the TI-84+CE instead, but the hardware is almost identical so TI-83PCE games and programs will most likely run on both. I didn't do much SNES ROM hacking myself (only a crappy SMW level) but I was curious about it a few years ago and I had in mind to port some of my old calculator RPGs to SNES or NES ROM hacks in the future. It's just that making music seems much harder than just using Mario Paint and Music 2000.

As for ASM, I know that unknownloner, MateoConLechuga, Keoni29 and AssemblyBandit do ASM so hopefully they might be able to help you. As for OSU you are in luck, since Unknownloner plays it a lot too (and creates OSU maps). I think the reason why we have some OSU players is because the founding members of this site were very into Japanese culture (such as anime). :P
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Phyxie on January 19, 2015, 05:31:22 am
Gah, TI-84+CE is what I meant, wasn't thinking right. That was one other reason I came back to asm programming for the TI calcs. one of the things I hated was TI continuing to use the z80 in the TI84+CSE and for the types of games I want to make, without being an asm wizard, I would need more than the 15 MHz z80. I've heard that the TI-84+CE will have an eZ80 processor which has potential to run at 50MHz which should be more than enough for me to achioeve my end goal of creating a Gameboy emulator or at the very least porting a few games. Also as a sidenote Engtlish is my second language (natively Polish) and I think I can speak it pretty good now but I do make stupid mistakes sometimes so sorry in advance if I do.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on January 19, 2015, 06:00:16 am
No problem. TI can be very confusing with their calculator names anyway, because in France almost every model were renamed in the last few years (TI-83+ -> TI-82+, TI-84+SE -> TI-83+Fr, TI-83 -> TI-82 Stats.Fr). And yeah the Color 84+SE was disappointing for speed. I am unsure who thought about putting a 15 MHz processor in there. At least now they have righted their wrongs for that, even if it's not perfect. If you check the videos on the front page, you'll notice that the 84+CE menus and typing is way faster than the 84+CSE. I think it might be 25-30 MHz or so, judging by the speed, but I could be wrong. 50 MHz would have been nice.


That said, there already exists a Game Boy emulator called TI-Boy CSE, though, by calc84maniac. https://www.omnimaga.org/ti-boy-se-game-boy-emulator-for-ti-83se84/ so ideally it would be best to try making an emulator for another console (maybe the Game Gear, NES or Atari?)

Don't worry about your English, because so far it seems very fine, plus 90% of the CodeWalrus users (as well as the entire staff) don't speak English as native language (4 of the staff speak French and one speaks Dutch). :)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Phyxie on January 19, 2015, 06:17:08 am
I only know that the ez80's max is around 50MHz from past projects, it porobably wont be that high but from tests done I've heard it performs arithmitic, graphics io and memory access about 2.7 t0 3 times as fast so I think a number between 40 and 45 is a reasonable guess. Than again I could be completely wrong. Now that you point it out a gameboy emu wouldn't be as fun. An NES emulator seems very possible it only runs at 1.79MHz compared to the gameboy's 4.194304MHz.. Plus I am already very familiar with the 65o816 processor from my SNES emulator and the NES uses pretty much the same cpu only 8 bits (the 6508 CPU). I still have to learn how to program for the z80 before I can do anything though. (If anyone passing through has any good resources or tutorials it would help a lot).
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on January 19, 2015, 06:23:23 am
Yeah I remember that alberthrocks wanted to create a custom community calculator back in 2010 called OTZ80, along with an higher end model called OTARM. TI probably used 15 MHz Z80s in the TI-84+CSE in order to keep costs to a minimum.

As for the NES emu, the main issue that could arise is that it's not the same processor. With TI-Boy CSE' Calc84maniac could take shortcuts as he was pretty much emulating a processor from the same family as the calc itself. But if you are familiar with it then maybe you might have more luck making such emulator? ;) (although I usually recommend starting small at first, if you are new to ASM or haven't used it in several years.)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Phyxie on January 19, 2015, 06:34:28 am
Don't get me wrong I'm not planning on jumping right into a full scale emulator, maybe a nice pong program first kek. and I think TI used the z80 again was because from the TI84 to TI-84CSE not much really changed other than the screen, ram and Flash memory  (I think?) everything is pretty much the same as before but with a bigger color screen and a newer OS. As for the CPU emulation, the Gameboy uses a 6502 which is very simimilar to the z80 using the same opcodes as a stock z80 for all but around 20-30 custom instructions. The NES uses a 6508 which is just a custom motorola 6502 CPU so I am expecting (hoping) that it will be similar and I will be able to sort of cheat the opcode translation.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on January 19, 2015, 07:05:48 am
Yeah I am just making sure because many people actually do that O.O . And yeah not much changed with the CSE (although it brought back the 128K RAM chip that TI had removed in 2007 in the 84+/SE, which caused some programs to stop working on newer 84+/SE models). I think they were just lazy in 2013 and thought that people would accept such calc model (they did, due to liking working around old school hardware limitations and pushing it to its limits, but still).

And nice to hear about those CPUs. TI-Boy CSE runs slower than the real thing, but with a faster CPU I think it might run closer to full speed with some frame skipping. Maybe a NES emu wouldn't be too far off. Even with frame skipping it would still be enjoyable.

Hi there! I'd suggest making a new thread if you have any questions or ideas. Also, the emulator calc84maniac wrote for the CSE is, well, pretty slow :P Why not give it a shot, I'd say. I'm also interested in your SNES ROM hacking, please show it off :D
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on January 19, 2015, 03:08:40 pm
It will be hard to do something faster than calc84 on the CSE considering his 9 years of experience, though. :P
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: aeTIos on January 19, 2015, 04:11:02 pm
The CSE is at max speed already.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!

Maybe with hardware mod, but that's not really legit as not everyone could do it, it's not like drawing on a jumper to change the model settings (hello Casio College 2d)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on January 19, 2015, 05:33:31 pm
Which reminds me, I wonder if the jumper trick or something similar is used to make the difference between the TI-84+CE and TI-83PCE? I haven't got the chance to check the hardware in details on TI-Planet.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Snektron on January 19, 2015, 05:51:31 pm
The wiki on ez80 say's it can reach a speed of 200 Mhz, so
maybe PCE just uses a faster version of the model?

Hello!

I'm iconmaster. You might know me from Omnimaga or elsewhere. I dabble in many calculator-type projects. Lately, I've been working with the HP Prime. I've made a few games for it, and my current project, Source, is an HP Prime project.

I'll be sure to post my projects here soon. Nice to meet you all!
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on January 21, 2015, 10:08:24 pm
Heya, glad to see you around. :D Do you have new games for the Prime? I know you made a Tetris game but I don't remember if you had any other projects besides Source.

Heya, glad to see you around. :D Do you have new games for the Prime? I know you made a Tetris game but I don't remember if you had any other projects besides Source.

Short answer: Nope!

Long answer: I DID make 1/10 of a game. I'll have to post what I made before I gave up. Let me just say this about it: As it turns out, HPPL does not like cyclic dependencies.

Do you think you could eventually update the game so that it's in one single file? Now that HP fixed issues with large transfers (at least under 1 MB or so) sending one large file shouldn't be a major issue, plus HP PPL supports subroutines anyway.

Hi, my first calculator as the TI-83 Plus, got a v200 and sell it when N-spire appears and smiled at me  :D . So currently i have a old TI-nspire cas clickpad.
I done many programs and a game in basic, never shared(sorry) cuz i dont have computer(when i as young, not now), and no cable. Recently im putting some lua files i done using the Ti-Master box kit, and put them at Ticalc.org.
So im not a programing guy at all but i like this stuff.  ;D

That said, I need to investigate on a glitch with language settings. Not sure if it's because one of the language (English) uses a different charset or due to other mods, but sometimes it seems that my language settings have changed by themselves.

Hiiiiiii I'm me! I joined cause I liked DJ's sale pitch for this forum, and am blown away at how much this place has grown in the few months it's existed.

I spend most of my time refurbishing computers - I buy them where I can, usually eBay, perform hardware repairs, and resell, and if you ever want to buy a computer contact me - listening to music, and staring off. The music I like is metal, synthpop, eurodance, electronic, rock, and such - but only if it's from the 80s. The 80s are the best. Electronic can get away with any time though. Another thing I do is woodworking - I made the wooden TI-82. (http://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10340)

I occasionally program in TI-Basic and QBasic, and am wanting to learn Axe. I'm also trying to learn japanese (love anime too :3), electric guitar, and improved computer software repair skills.

I suffer from depression, and struggle with trusting people because of past events.

Hello everybody!
I'm Benedikt (or known as DarkestEx, Muessigb) and whatever username I picked else on the wide internet.
I guess a few of you already know me from Omnimaga and Cemetech.
I'm interested in design, cooking, microelectronics, physics and programming.
Actually I'm good i those programming languages: C, C#, VB.NET, PHP, HTML & CSS, TI-Basic, Small Basic, Axe, Bash (and my own 2016 programming language Claw)
And I know those a little: Java, Z80 Assembler, Basic, JavaScript.
I'm going to a high-school in Germany.

If you want to know more about me, feel free to visit my homepage: http://muessigb.net/ (http://muessigb.net/)

And no, I'm not depressed, or having any trust problems ;)

I really can't wait until winter is over so that I don't get exhausted from work as much. The outdoor part of my job, as well as the indoor cleaning part are signifiantly harder when there's snow on the ground. When I arrive home or when I am off from work I am usually too exhausted to pursue any kind of programming or music creation. >.<

That reminds me, I also hope everyone is satisfied with CW so far. I noticed that some users who joined posted like mad for one day, then are never to be seen again, so perhaps there is something missing or vice-versa? In the past during my last two years or so as Omni admin, I sent an e-mail to all members when there was a contest or at the end of the year to show the major site updates that they might have missed, then encouraged them to let us know how their experience on CW could be improved at http://codewalr.us/index.php?board=1.0 , as well as encouraging them to show us their current work.

I am one of the older members of the community, I have a wife and a 1 year old son, so I may not be active consistently or as often as I used to be when I first joined the community. I have one project currently in the works; DOA, a raycasting FPS using the FAT engine for the 68k series of calculators. (Ti-89 / 92+ / Voyage 200).

So now that you all know a little about me, I'll see you around the forums!

Post by: xlibman on March 23, 2015, 05:11:13 pm
Welcome here. As an active Cemetech and former Omnimaga member, I must say that the best way to learn is to read carefully what advice people give you when you ask for help and break out of bad habits that you might still have (eg make sure to search the web before asking). I know it's hard to learn new stuff and adapt to changes as PDD-NOS or even with other forms of autism (and this is why I gave up on ASM) but most forum members have very limited free time and other people might need their help too so when they help people, they expect them to do their homework (see Advice IV http://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=36.0 ) first. Otherwise, people who try to help will eventually give up or lose patience.

It also definitively helps to start small. Machine code instead of ASM (and even ASM) might be pushing it a bit too far for now (I'm thinking several years off), especially that in your case, breaking out of your TI-BASIC habits might take a few additional years (from experience with my three failed attempts at learning ASM) since you got exposed to high-level languages for too long. It's also entirely possible that ASM and such low level languages might just not be for you.

We do not have many ASM programmers here, though, since we just opened a few months ago and most ASM programmers on CodeWalrus are people from Cemetech or Omnimaga.

Im an exception! yay :P
But (atleast in my case) general programming knowlege helps a lot when learning ASM.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on March 23, 2015, 09:17:12 pm
Yeah the Asm in 28 days tutorials explicitely states that you must be fluent in at least one high-level language other than TI-BASIC in order to learn ASM, else you pretty much stand no chance. On the other hand, for people who have issues adapting to changes, especially drastic ones, getting exposed to high-level languages for too long can make it considerably harder for them to learn ASM, if not next to impossible in some cases.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Snektron on March 23, 2015, 09:27:39 pm
Well it is a very obscure language, so if you're used to some kind of system or structure and you try to learn ASM that it suddenly won't work and you have to start from scratch.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on March 23, 2015, 11:19:28 pm
Yeah true, but I think it's because of how low level it is. It's next to machine code and hexadecimal mnemonics in terms of level, although I assume that all three are the same, just that ASM looks closer to English. It requires a different way of thinking that some people will have an harder time to adapt to. However I noticed that most people who have an hard time  learning ASM and manages to succeed don't have as much troubles getting good at it.

Heya Catastropher and welcome to the forums. I believe I remember you on Omni from long before the X3D/Descent engine, but I don't remember exactly when we met. If I remember, you were the guy working on an enhanced version of Hoffa's nfrotz text-based RPG engine for the Nspire, right?

Also nice to see another music composer. What instrument do you play or what software do you use and what kind of music do you compose? I myself have composed some since 2002.

Ah yes, it's kind of an inside joke and something from 9gag.
Me and brent have a hangouts group where we talk in a lot (since were in the same class too) and we had a period where we put 'tron' behind everything.
We also still have a period where we make jokes of everything with pythons / snakes in general. On 9gag is kind of a thing where a name gets changed a bit weird,
like spoderman (the meme which started it). so oneday somebody came up with 'snek', which is spoderman-speak for snake. And ofcourse we put 'tron', and thus 'snektron' was created. Then for some reason it was made in Comrade Snektron, and with 'Cumred' being a spoderman-speak for 'Comrade' :P

I had no idea what Cumred was but at first I read sleketon as in skeleton with the letters mixed up but soon after I saw that it was snek but the tron part really confused me. Anyways thanks for the explanation, I think it really helps our brains not see images of skeleton snake things.

Yeah I think the issue is that TI-84-plus.com was started solely to offer a place to discuss about the TI-84 Plus and get help, while Omni and Cemetech both offered that already. I don't remember if it was started in response to United-TI demise, but I'm afraid that it might have been obsolete right from the start, especially considering that nowadays it's next to impossible for a calculator site to survive with only calculator-related discussion, let alone about a single model series.

Omnimaga at least had the many RPG projects, followed by many features that CodeWalrus now has and TI-Boy/nDoom/Axe. United-TI was a merger of 5-6 forums and a large TI-BASIC optimizing fan central and they had Contra 83. Cemetech had interesting hardware discussions, more discussion freedom and now has Doors CS/SourceCoder. CodeWalrus has the atmosphere and most site features that Omnimaga admins got rid off in the last three years and TI-Planet, while being French, has the many discoveries about new calcs, OSes and Nspire hacks. Even then, most of those sites had a slow start or had a big slump during their first few years of operation.

Nice to have you on the forums. I hope you enjoy your stay! :walrii:

Could you check on the back of your calculator and tell us with what letter does your serial number end? I hope you got an earlier version, such as A through I. They could run OS 3.1 and Ndless would remain installed after reboots even without nLaunchy. You should be fine with newer hardware, though, but I find older ones less annoying to hack.

Feel free to ask questions if you ever have any and also look around in case you find some interesting projects and stuff. We tend to dive into art and old school gaming discussion quite a bit, as well as programming for many calculator platforms and even mobile/computer. :)

Unfortunately, it ends in T. I can't even run OS 3.6 without weird things happening (specifically, unable to use my calculator without it being plugged in all the time). The lack of persistence across reboots has not been an issue for me, because I almost never turn off or reset my calc.

Aw sorry to hear. It looks like you're stuck with OS 3.9 series and Ndless 3.9 then. Just make sure to not run unstable softwares so you don't need to remain next to a computer to reinstall Ndless every 5 minute.
Lol, that problem with the battery sound like something I had with my CSE. I had to pull the rechargable battery to fix it. Don't do it yourself as it voids the warranty.
Wait what? Removing the battery from the battery slot voids the calc warranty? O.O Then what if someone's calc froze and even the reset button doesn't work? (unless it's TI way to punish users of Ndless programs?) And what about people with defective batteries who buys a new one as replacement?

Are you sure it's really the case, though? You should check in the TI-84+CSE manual on TI website to see if it mentions anything about it. Considering the CSE supports ASM and thus, is at risks of crashes, voiding the warranty on battery pull would be by far the dumbest move ever from TI. Sometimes, maybe the reset button on the back of the calc won't be enough to get out of a bad crash. And what if the battery has gone bad?

I think if that happens they expect you to take them up on the warranty.

Hello I'm Jonius7.
I come from Omnimaga, I will copy paste the first part of my story from there:

I first arrived on the calculator scene in 2008 when i received my cousin's CASIO CFX-9850GB+. I soon wanted some games but there was no link cable. In the end i found many games on UCF and CasioKingdom and managed to type them in (opened the .cat file in word and then printed it out for me to type) I even typed out the whole Star Wars game (at least 18000 bytes) by Sean Tan but i changed it to save memory! I also took a basic game, Indy2000 and changed into a cool featured pack game with highscores and stuff. Anyway, in 2010 my new school required a TI-nspire and so i moved into the TI-nspire programming scene. I soon realised that the programming capability of the nspire was much lacking than the 9850, I couldn't make games such as pacman. Oh well, I finally made a game on 15 August 2010, Jason's TI-nspire's Hold 'em available for download on ticalc.org. Upcoming games include Battle of 16s and Cosmic Legions, both strategy games.

Noobiness from 2010 aside, after that I continued programming in TI-nspire BASIC, and then TI-nspire Lua, though admittedly, I haven't released anything exactly big on Lua. Been relatively inactive on calculator forums, since around 2013, though there is a secret Lua project that I started in July 2013, and come back to work on it every few months or so. I probably won't reveal it until I am satisfied with functionality though.

Other than that, I am busy with uni (double degree in IT/Science), and have greatly expanded my knowledge of many different programming languages in the past 2 years from uni subjects (Python, Java, C, C#, ASP.NET, HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, JSP, SQL...).
Whether I can apply this to my interest of calculator programming remains to be seen.

I also spent a lot of time on video games in the past, you will find me playing League of Legends nowadays.

Well i think ASM is entirely different from languages nowadays and be good to learn some basics. I don't mean as a language to make stuff in, but more to get to know the inner workings of a processor and/or programming languages. Bytecodes are ASM too and if you learn to design a programming language you'd need to know what to compile to, right? :P
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on May 12, 2015, 01:06:25 pm
Oh right, I guess it's good to at least know how the processor works and stuff. :P

Erm normally he should have been approved automatically. What is his account username? You might also need to PM me his e-mail address. It's possible that he uses a suspicious IP address and e-mail and that the anti-spam caught it.


EDIT: I see an account called deus_ex in the list with an e-mail that seems somewhat legit (although spambots used to use e-mails that looked even more legit). I'll set the account so the user can click an activation link via his e-mail in case.

Ohh sorry I thought I already posted NVM he signed up on the 15th but it said it was on the 14th here so I was confused. I think he is @Josefa91B I will ask him. I would not me surprised if the spambot did pick him up since he is a spamy person but I am pretty sure he won't (he read the forum rules when he signed up and that is irregular soo...).

Thanks for the help :P

Hello, most of you know me from Omnimaga, Cemetech, and TI-Planet as CVSoft (duh) or notipa. I do TI-BASIC with the non-Flash calculators and 68k (so basically, the ones nobody use anymore), and have started dabbling in TI-82 and TI-83 assembly. I've been doing TI-BASIC since about 2005, so wow 10 years now, with the TI-85 and began TI-83 development in 2007. I've been a ticalc member for at least an eternity and a half, and joined Omnimaga some time in 2012. I was never particularly active there, and Cemetech won over my activity levels starting in mid-2013. Since then, I've been largely on-and-off with my programming, with college and other hobbies such as amateur radio (http://qrz.com/db/KJ6PSG) and Unreal Tournament 2004 (https://sites.google.com/site/bosaiknet/ut2k4) sapping away at time I could be spending doing things like working on the long-promised CBLM v1.6. As of lately, I've been getting a bunch of interesting (early production) non-Flash calculators and documenting the ROMs and hardware; my calculator collection (http://i.imgur.com/MdYODho.jpg) has nearly tripled in size as a result of this. I've also been resuming some old projects of mine such as BASIChat2 and the non-Doors CS version BASIChat3, along with linking the TI-83 and TI-CBL series to Global Calcnet.

Heya CVSoft nice to see you here :walrii: . I can't wait to see what you have in store. I know you have been into TI-81/82 ROM/hardware a lot lately. Although those platforms are outdated sometimes they can still be fun to mess around with. I myself made an RPG on the 81 back in late 2008 and it had ASCII art graphics and animations.
Welcome SoftCV! Oh, I thought nopia was someone else. hmm...
Yeah same lol. I think I spent like 5 months on Omni thinking they were two different persons. XD

Hello, i'm gameblabla and you may have heard of me.
I spend most of my times making homebrew games for old and exotic platforms.
I got a Ti Nspire when i was still at school and made my first game for it, Cass' Gueule.
Nowadays, i mostly make ports and don't do a lot of original projects.
And i hate C++.
Classes look ugly and i think ANSI C is better, portable and easier to understand in everyway.
That is all

Post by: xlibman on May 31, 2015, 03:38:08 pm
Heya and nice to see you here. :D I saw your many SDL ports recently and commented on one in the TI-Planet thread. I am glad to see Nspire program development somewhat revived in one form of another, and I wish that there was a way to make Sega Genesis or SNES emulation run faster. I still need to try some of your recent releases.

ANyway I hope you enjoy your stay :)

The TI Nspire CX is quite capable but unfortunely,

(Also I think you speak French as your native language, right? The entire CodeWalrus staff speak French as their native language)
Yup, french is my mother tongue.
I write/speak english on the web so much, at one time, i almost forgot how to write french !

Yeah that's the issue, plus with not many programmers it's even harder to find one that isn't as busy.

And for French I am the same personally. I got so used to write on English forums that I tend to not like writing in French as much, especially due to all accents and special characters. >.<

I guess I should also introduce myself here, as someone who doesn't know much more about French than "Omelette" and "Baguette" :P

I got addicted to calculator programming around two years ago, shortly before linux was ported, which was also the main reason to register on omnimaga.
I started some projects of my own after that, most notably nGL/crafti and I'm currently busy with nspire_emu-qt/<placeholder for a better name>.
I'm also occasionally doing some development on ndless itself.
I just realized that every sentence in this post starts with "I", but I can assure you that I'm not that egocentric outside of this post >:D

PS: I absolutely LOVE c++, it's in every way better than ANSI C, especially more readable and easier to understand (if the code isn't total clusterfsck). :P gameblabla

Finally getting around to introducing myself!  ;D

I came to this site for Streetwalrus's XenoPi mod, and just kind of stuck around. I'm currently only fluent in Visual BASIC, and speak broken Java. I'm starting to get into TI a bit, so we'll see how that goes. I do a lot of console modding; currently working on a portable wii, so I may post something about that in the future.

I don't publish a lot of my work (probably <1% of the stuff I make ends up online). What I do publish is scattered around the web. You can find a few things on my website: zxander.thenerd.me (http://zxander.thenerd.me)

What else... I sing. Totally unrelated, but it's pretty much my life, so might as well mention it.

So, yeah... That's me in a nutshell!  :)

Thanks DJ Omnimaga, I'll probably be posting my game as a showcase after I do a little more work on it.

I mainly sing in various choirs. I like singing to just about all kinds of music, but I'm particularly fond of country/western. My favorite artist has got to be Collin Raye, so I sing a lot of his stuff.

Cool to hear. I tend to not be into every type of country music but I like some (usually the stuff that is closer to the New Year Eve music we listen to in Quebec) so I'll have to check Collin Raye out (I probably have heard his stuff before, though. I suck at remembering artist names)

While I'm not a perfect coder I like to program things :DD

My calc is a fx9860 GII-2 (SH4) and my current big project is Pokemon,
but not even the first line of code exists (just some playing around, yeah, a walking walking sprite and a silly mapeditor)
but everything has to be redone...

Hello ! I'm just a French programmer for Casio's calculators who comes from Planète Casio. :D
Does your username come from the Noldor?

Heya utz and welcome to the forums. :) Yeah, there were... ahem... quite some changes to the english community from October to December >.<, but that's a long story. There is more diversity now in the community overall.

By the way, I always liked your music. The calc music files were nice too. I still sometimes check your Soundcloud in case you upload something, but I didn't remember that you had a Bandcamp. I'll follow you. :)

Well, in summary, many people either no longer felt welcome on Omni or became unhappy about administration and eventually, they gave up and this new site was started. This new site only got first discussed in June 2014 and founded in October, but honestly it was only a matter of time before it happens, because the writing was on the wall for at least 3 years. Not that Omnimaga's current policies are necessarily bad, but many CW members joined Omni before the new Omni policies were fully implemented. This site has policies similar to what Omnimaga had when I still ran it (I stepped down in July 2011).

Drama-aside, glad that you like my music :) I haven't done anything in a long while, though. I need to find new ideas. >.<

By the way, have you considered making music for the 15 MHz calculators?
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: utz on July 01, 2015, 11:29:05 pm
Weeeeell... have I considered it? Yes, certainly. Am I going to get around to doing it? Probably not in the near future. I mean right now I'm busy with a big project for 6 MHz, and after that I want to take a good look at my newly obtained 92+. Also, I still don't own a 15 MHz model. But generally speaking I'm definately interested in write a driver specifically for 15 MHz, as it should allow for some amazing tricks. Current drivers are nowhere near pushing the limits.

Yeah I am definitively curious about how far the limits can be pushed on 15 MHz calcs. We got TI-Boy SE and QuadPlayer which pushes them far with 4 channel audio and TruSound which has good wav sound, but is it the max the calc can do?

It's a shame that newer calcs no longer have a link port, though. Now we will have to rely on USB sound.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: utz on July 02, 2015, 10:03:31 am
Well, 4 channels is very well possible on 6 MHz, so a 15 MHz machine should definately be able to do more. Register availability eventually will become a more serious bottleneck than CPU speed, but 6-8 channels should nevertheless be doable.

Regarding the missing link port, If I interpret Brandonw's twitter remarks correctly, the linkport is technically still there, it's just not wired out anymore. So in theory one could be build in, but I doubt many people are going to do that.

Also I recently posted some thought about USB sound on Cemetech, but nobody really responded :o So I'll copy it here, maybe someone wants to follow up on the idea.

Quote
Had some thoughts on how to get sound out of the 84+ CE. I'm not going to try and implement it myself since I don't have a CE and there is no point in getting one for me either, but I thought I'd share the idea anyway.

Well, as you know we can't use the analogue link port anymore :( But what we can use is the D- line of the USB. So the first step is to make an USB -> sound adapter.
Basically you'd just need to connect pin 2 (white line) to the tip of a mono jack, and connect pin 4 (black) to the ground. Perhaps it'd need some extra resistors/caps/whatever though, who knows.

Now for the software side. First, one should probably power off the USB. Now to make sound, you can use the usual link port tricks, alas only in mono (but with 2 volume levels). Instead of using the link port however, you'd toggle bits 3 and 4 of port 0x4A. Right?

DISCLAIMER: It's just an idea, and my knowledge of both USB stuff and electronics is very limited. So unless you feel like blowing up your brand new CE, don't try this at home folks ;)

I also am pushing things here and there to gather infos for creating some kind of game-based soundcard for TI calcs (Casio too if that's possible), if you're interested into my ideas and discuss with me about how I could build the hardware thing, I'd be glad to talk with you.

@Duke "Tape" Eiyeron: Sorry to disappoint you... but I know literally nothing about building hardware. I think keonie29 is the man you want to talk to, he built a sound thingy for the 84+ a while back.

@Unicorn: Yeah, probably it'll get overlooked here... on the other hand, as I mentioned I don't have a CE and don't plan on getting one, so I don't really have any good reasons to follow up on the idea. I'm just throwing this out here in case maybe someone else wants to pick it up.

Yeah it was implemented a few months ago. Omnimaga added it a while later as well. It can be handy, although it's buggy, as witnessed by some members above (in my case it always works except when using Quick Edit, and when using Reply on mobile, sometimes the drop down won't appear, although mentions will still get parsed after hitting submit.

It might be a permission problem, though (IIRC at first I was debating between only allowing staff to use it or all members above 20 posts, then decided to do the latter, but didn't bother checking permissions)

Hello,

I've lurked for a long time on various calc forums, but this is my first actual account in a calc programming community. My 84+SE died a week ago after 5 years of honorable service, andI can't replace it since TI apparently doesn't make the SE anymore. So, I decided to get an 89 Titanium instead. I used to write lots of little programs in Axe, basic, and z80 asm, so I think I'll be able to pick up 68k reasonably quickly.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on July 22, 2015, 03:21:09 am
Heya flimflam and welcome to the forums. Sorry to hear about your TI-84 Plus SE. What issue does it have? As for 68K programming, @catastropher is working on a 3D engine right now and Lionel used to do a lot of it too, so they can probably help you. :)

I hope you enjoy your stay. :)

Thanks! The keypad on the SE went bust (except for the ON button). I tried all the usual reset tricks, reinstalled the OS, etc., but to no avail. Eventually, I found a guide on Cemetech to take the thing apart and clean it. I took it apart and removed and cleaned all the keys and the mat, but after putting it back together it still didn't work.

I was thinking of getting a CX CAS, but the constant boot code changing and TI's antipathy towards asm make me think the 89Ti is a better choice.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on July 22, 2015, 05:17:04 am
Ah that sucks. I wonder if there is a way to repair the keyboard other than the Cemetech way. Do you know if the internal circuits were exposed to humidity? That could have ruined the calc. Anyway I'm glad that you want to continue calculator programming despite this. And yeah I honestly don't like the TI-Nspire CX because of the constant ASM lockdowns from TI. The TI-89T community is no longer very active, but there are still quite a bit of 68K users in some areas that still sell the TI-89T (eg USA and Canada) and we happen to have two other programmers for it. I myself got one but I mostly programmed for the TI-81, TI-83+/84+, TI-84+CSE, TI-84+CE and HP Prime.

Welcome and you could probably buy a for parts ti 84+ se on eBay and swap the keyboards given that most calculator issues originate from the screen. I'd put that off until you learned 68k though because I know that at least for me, I'd go with the language that I've already learned rather than the one I am in the process of learning. Also I think that the 89 is a much better choice than the cx cas for a regular calc programmer.

I can't find an 84 or 83 SE that's both mint and cheaper than the titanium - supply/demand and all that, but thanks anyway for the advice. Fortunately, I was able to rip a ROM off the 84+ that I can use with wabbitemu to run my old programs.

Hello,

I've lurked for a long time on various calc forums, but this is my first actual account in a calc programming community. My 84+SE died a week ago after 5 years of honorable service, andI can't replace it since TI apparently doesn't make the SE anymore. So, I decided to get an 89 Titanium instead. I used to write lots of little programs in Axe, basic, and z80 asm, so I think I'll be able to pick up 68k reasonably quickly.
Hey flimflam and welcome to the fourms :)

Thanks to all for the warm welcome!

Why didn't you just look on Ebay for a new 84+ SE? Or, you could even search for a 83+ SE, because its exactly the same, except for MATHPRINT and some other OS things. (And I find its much cheaper ;))

I can't find an 84 or 83 SE that's both mint and cheaper than the titanium - supply/demand and all that, but thanks anyway for the advice. Fortunately, I was able to rip a ROM off the 84+ that I can use with wabbitemu to run my old programs.
Good to hear. You still have the original hardware I assume, so you can emulate it fine :)

And Unicorn prices for the 84+ and Nspire CX calcs are often ridiculous on Ebay because they're popular. I rarely see 84+ calcs under $100 there unless they are broken (in which case it's usually easy to get one for $20)

Post by: Unicorn on July 28, 2015, 04:06:39 pm
Well yeah, but I got my 83+ SE for 32, and it had a tiny blemish on the screen, sothe 83+ is nice unless you want mathprint.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on July 28, 2015, 04:19:30 pm
I like the 83+SE quite a lot actually. Early 84+ calcs were actually slower than the 83+SE, although not by much, and newer ones are as fast, if not faster. Plus the 83+SE has the extra RAM pages and crystal timers. The only problem is that the 83+SE model has an higher failure rate than others, lacks an USB port and a clock. It also lacks MathPrint, but that's better that way for compatibility (MathPrint breaks many programs)

THe OS broke compatibility with some of them. The most notable bug is with inverted text on the home screen. For example Reuben 2 BASIC and The Reign of Legends 2 have display issues in OS 2.53 MP or higher, Omnicalc and xLIB will not install and it made it very hard for ASM coders to port programs. Just ask KermMartian how much trouble he had getting DCS7 to work properly in MP OSes before its 2010 release.

Hello, I am c4ooo. I started programming calculators in ti-basic slightly more then 2 years ago,and at that time I made a game, Lazer 1, submitting it to ticalc. I was using a school calc, so when the school year ended I stopped programming. Then about 7 months ago I laid my eyes on a ti84+, and some spirit awoke inside me, causing me to buy a calc and start programming again. About a weak later, I needed some help with axe and joined omnimaga. There I become, along with JWinslow and... (Ugh pimath why?) in charge of running the code golf rebooted contests (CGR). After very few iterations CGR became dead, and a conversation I had with pimathbrainiac about CGR caused him to lash out and do what he did. I hope he is ok  :'(

Post by: xlibman on August 10, 2015, 04:49:14 am
Heya and nice to see another calculator programmer :). I am glad you could get your own calculator so you could pursue your hobby. DO you still use Axe, by the way?

As for Code Golf I think the lack of interest was more because there were 22 contests already, so the novelty effect from the first series was probably too far away to allow a reboot to last more than 2 or 3 contests, but it had a quite long run for a community-ran contest. I have been around for 14 years and most contests that were not ran by site admins often had 1-2 entries at most. I am surprised that the 2012 Armageddon Contest even got any success. Ideally, it's better to try something new once in a while or offer prizes, but offering prizes for CGR would cause anyone to go bankrupt lol. It was definitvely a good run, though.

One idea, though, would be to space the contests out more and involve more game-related themes (eg video game-based riddles). One contest every week is hard to participate to when we are busy with work and family sometimes, even moreso with school, so maybe one a month?

Anyway I hope you enjoy your stay :)

Thanks man. To answer your question I do still use axe, but I want to get into asm programing eventually. I still don't know what to do with CGR, but i will think of something; maybe have a hack-a-thon.

Aah ok cool to hear. I never got ASM but it's good to see new people using it. :)

As for what Unicorn says it might be mis-worded, but it's not bad, since pretty much anything could have happened that would have resulted into you discovering the site (even Google). As for spelling it's generally best to do an effort but we understand that English is not everyone's native language (most people don't speak it as native language here, including myself :P). I generally prefer to disable auto-correct on Android, though, because it often caused more troubles than benefits. :P

Ticalc did not have a single program available for download when I first visited it (due to the CD fiasco, which I didn't pay attention to, at the time), so if I wasn't aware of other sites at the time, then maybe I would have thought that there isn't a community about calcs

This forum talks about EVERYTHING I love. I'm a programmer, have a collection of 8bit computers, am a photographer and artist, and now I'm studying electronics engineering.
I have a huge passion for graphing calculators, and I use them both in math and in art. My favourite ones are the classic HP, but I've been fidgeting with a TI-84+CSE and finding some nice stuff. (I just bought it because it uses a Z80 processor, my favourite processor ever).
Now I'm trying to use an app called Zoom Math on it. It seems pretty cool, but I can't afford the license.
Well, I think that's it. Hope to chat a lot with you guys, and exchange experiences and information.

I had a few more things, but had to sell them :(
You can see some of my photos on my flickr. It's out of date, but you can get the gist of what I do: www.flickr.com/photos/mauriciomunuera
Sure, I'll love to share my programs! Eleven years ago (I was 13 yo) I developed a library system using Clipper and dBase. I'm not bragging, but I have to admit it was pretty tight, complete and stable. :) I guess that was my biggest accomplishment, other than that I only wrote some small and silly programs.
Right now I'm working on a derivative and integral program for my HP35s. I want to make it more user-friendly (as far as the calculator allows me), and correct a few bugs. But when I finish I'll share the code with you guys.

If you really want to do z80 stuff, you should get a monochrome 84+ SE, they're much easier to program, given that the LCD controller is simpler. There are also more assembly programs for it, including an on-calc assembler/IDE (http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/431/43140.html).

Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: mauriciomunuera on September 23, 2015, 07:15:59 pm
Yes, the HP 35 is an amazing calculator. They remade it as the HP 35s (which is the one I own). I prefer the vintage one, but they're usually much more expensive.

The monochrome TI84 is great. But I already have the TI82, so the color display on the CSE is a nice addition for me. I was planning on writing an emulator for ZX Spectum or TRS-80 on the CSE, but I guess I was thinking too high. I don't even know if that's possible, but it would be nice to run those programs straight on the Z80.

There is actually a ZX Spectrum emulator for the TI-89 and 92. I am curious about if the CSE could handle one. The main issue is that the screen is slow (to refresh the entire screen with 1 color it takes 0.25 seconds), so you would need to use some tricks.

Do you have an HP Prime, by the way? It's more aimed at students, unlike previous HP models, but I like it since its main language is incredibly fast. I bet someone could write an HP 35s emulator in HP PPL.

Really? I didn't know about the emulator! I'll check it out :)
Yeah, the display is very slow, but there might be some trick for it. I need to do some research.

I don't have an HP Prime yet. I want to buy one, but I'll wait a little bit to see if the price drops. I also want to buy the TI Nspire (and a TI Voyager, and an HP 42, and a lot of other calcs  9_9)

Post by: xlibman on September 24, 2015, 04:21:12 am
By TI Voyager, do you mean the Voyage 200 (the successor of the TI-92+)?

For the CSE, the trick is to only draw what's necessary on the screen. For example, if you make a Mario game, you need to shift the sprite around without redisplaying the entire tilemap every frame. THe LCD also supports horizontal wrap-around, so that can be used for scrolling.

I don't think the HP Prime price will drop, it's been around for what now, two years ? And I didn't hear of any price drop. Calculators are usually at a fixed price (unless they rebrand them *cough*TI*cough*).

Hi, guys!
This forum talks about EVERYTHING I love. I'm a programmer, have a collection of 8bit computers, am a photographer and artist, and now I'm studying electronics engineering.
I have a huge passion for graphing calculators, and I use them both in math and in art. My favourite ones are the classic HP, but I've been fidgeting with a TI-84+CSE and finding some nice stuff. (I just bought it because it uses a Z80 processor, my favourite processor ever).
Now I'm trying to use an app called Zoom Math on it. It seems pretty cool, but I can't afford the license.
Well, I think that's it. Hope to chat a lot with you guys, and exchange experiences and information.
BTW, sorry for my clumsy english, I'm brazilian.
Best wishes for all!

Welcome! :)

I don't think the HP Prime price will drop, it's been around for what now, two years ? And I didn't hear of any price drop. Calculators are usually at a fixed price (unless they rebrand them *cough*TI*cough*).
I doubt it will drop now, but if schools starts ditching programmable calcs more and more, then TI, Casio and HP will have no choice to drop programmable calculator prices to convince schools to change their mind or at the very worst convince other schools to not do the same.

Hi guys.
I am a young programmer(13), so I may not be that good, but I try. I originally joined this forum because I saw that 4x3 competition, but I didn't have time to finish it and gave up :(. It was in java. I also started programming calculators on my ti 84 plus se that my brother gave me when I was in 6th grade, but I never really tinkered with it, and I tried to make my own gcd function based on euclid's algorthm in basic because I for some reason couldn't find it in the math functions(and I know it is there because I found it), and I also couldn't find mod so I had to make that as well, but I made it use addition so it was not super efficient and it took like 10 seconds to evaluate gcd of some numbers. I had made it in c on my comp a while back and it worked instantly. I had expected the gcd function to at least work at some reasonable speed. When I saw how slow it was I kinda gave up programming ti 84. I tried learning axe and it wasn't hard to grasp, but it's just sooooo annoying to program on calc. Oh yeah now I program in lua for ti nspire, and, hopefully, when ndless for os 4.0 comes out I will hopefully learn to program for ndless. I know c, java, but not graphics for it, so I just use processing when I have to do graphics. I also just joined a zero robotics team, which has done pretty well and even(I think) won once.

Nice to have you with us Semiprocoder :), also you can program Axe on the computer by the way. You need Tokens or SourceCoder. Also regarding robotics, I think Hooloovoo is in FRC robotics, but I forgot if it was that thing.

Schools aren't dropping them for their high price, but because the government wants "same chances for everybody" and such crap.

Oh I didn'T say they were dropping them for their high price at all, I said they were just dropping them altogether. What I said about the price is that if schools ditch calcs, then TI/Casio/HP will need to lower their prices in order to convince schools that while school wants everyone to have "equal chances", that perhaps it would be a better option for classes to settle for the cheaper alternative that would become programmable calcs. Imagine if the TI-84+ was $59.99. I bet even parents would insist so that schools allow graphing calcs again. Currently the 84+CE is $150 here (or $130 on sale) and you can sometimes get a tablet for that price)

Yes I get you, but with equal chances they mean in finals. Everybody has to own a calculator that is allowed in finals. The 84+ and any other graphic or programmable calculator is forbidden in our finals or tests.

Dunno. Exam mode is not a option as its obviously easily hackable and memory clearing might have problems too. I guess they just want to f*** with us by forbidding more advanced calculators.

Hey, all! Luxen De'Mark here. I've been active in the TI community for ~4 years now, and am now starting to reach out to new devices for game design. I mainly registered as a response to 'microcat', but the community looks nice, and you may see me stick around for a bit longer.

I'm a Game Designer, Librarian, Furniture refinisher (bleck!), and hobbyist of sorts. Oh, and big-time procrastinator. Just poke me if i pause on a project.

Stuffs i'm working on:
InDimension - PC/Android arcade game
Tanks 2 - 84CE arcade game
Dark Worlds Empires series - all of the above
Ignition - programming language
PlotLib - a set of example tools to help new programmers use plotsprites in ti-basic, targetting the 84CE
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on October 01, 2015, 02:23:23 am
Welcome to the forums. You will find that some users here are quite into non-calc stuff too so hopefully you find quite a lot of interesting stuff here. :)

Also I think I saw PlotLib before. It reminded me of what someone did with the Casio FX-9860G but I wasn't sure if plot sprites were possible in TI-BASIC while still using lines to interconnect each dot and without having each sprite being connected together. I also hope that DarkestEx can achieve his goals with Microcat since the idea is quite nice (but hard to pull of, of course).

I hope you enjoy your stay here :)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Luxen on October 01, 2015, 02:49:47 am
PlotLib doesnt connect each plot with lines; during sprite creation, you throw an x1y1 x2y2 coords of a picture at it (rectangular selection area of Pic1) and it records every pixel that isnt white as ON to L1 and L2. then, when you draw the sprite using scatterplot, it just recalles those pixels. Im sure using xyline instead of scatter would acheive lower sprite sizes, but was beyond the scope of the project (introducing plotsprites to newer programmers).

Of course, getting 2 sprites to display at the same time was horrendous at first, cause I didnt use augment, but instead manually added, one by one, every single list element to the cumulative lists.

Now the thing im working on with this is bypassing the 999-point cap. Lists have a maximum of 999 points, then you cant add more data. still not sure what to do; i had an idea, but it wasnt working right. Ill topic it when I get back to it.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on October 01, 2015, 03:13:40 am
Ah I see. I was more wondering for larger sprites (eg 16x16 or 24x24. I generally use dual-layer ASCII since I can render entire rows of sprites instantly, but sometimes they can be limited since there are some sprites that are impossible using this technique and it requires a picture.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: mauriciomunuera on October 04, 2015, 03:54:51 am
Thanks for the tips, DJ Omnimaga!
That's true, the display is tricky. But there's also a way around a problem (even if it's an unusual and maybe crude solution. Here in Brazil we call it "gambiarra").
Yes, precisely! Voyager 200. It's such a nice calculator, and I like the keyboard.

Oh, don't say that, Streetwalrus! lol
I'm really hoping for the Prime price to drop. It's around 799 Reais here, which is A LOT.
The 50G used to cost around 500 here. When the Prime came out, it dropped to 250, 300 Reais.

Thank you, Cumred_Snektron! :)

Cool Garvalf, you should make a new topic in the music section with your songs. Be sure to update us when you release new ones too. I haven't made many chiptune songs but I did 3 so far, none of which were finished (the last one is still in the works, though):

http://djomnimaga.codewalr.us/itstheendofagonychiptune.mp3
https://soundcloud.com/djomnimaga/ht2oneaxeintro3

The first two were made using Pocket Music for the Game Boy Color and the last one was made using Houstontracker for the TI-82/Stats/83/83+/84+/SE. The last two are also covers of songs I released before (they are not chiptunes, but they were still made using outdated hardware (PSOne, using Music 2000/MTVMG).

I sporadically program stuff for the 84, in Basic and/or Axe. Very sporadically. But I guess I'm half-working on a project again, so that counts for something?
Besides that, I plan on mainly lurking around, and not doing much other than changing my avatar image far, far too often. As is my practice.

And that should be everything of importance. I managed to get through an intro post without running out of words to say. I feel very vaguely proud of myself.

Heya @Turiq and welcome to CodeWalrus. Having walrus in your nick would have been fine actually since the site name was inspired from Streetwalrus nick :P and even Hooloovoo switched to hooloowalrus :P

I hope you return in the community because it was cool when you were around :), and I am curious about what you plan to work on for calculators. Do you have any computer/console project as well? :)

Thankee! ^u^
And I do have something I've been working on a bit, though I've not made overly much progress. Trying to port Tak (http://cheapass.com/sites/default/files/TakBetaRules9-22.pdf) over to the 84. I'll make a thread if I manage to make enough progress that I actually have stuff to show xP

Tak is a game from a really amazing book series called The Kingkiller Chronicle; I highly recommend it to any fantasy fans

Post by: xlibman on November 05, 2015, 07:08:39 am
Ah I didn't know it was from a fantasy book or something. I thought it was just a standalone game that got created like Chess, checkers, etc.

By the way sorry for being off-topic, but does anyone remember Hnefatafl? Someone was working on a calculator port of that board game a few years ago. EDIT: It was @SJCubed https://www.omnimaga.org/ti-z80-calculator-projects/hnefatafl-the-viking-board-game-(download-on-page-7)/msg85509/#msg85509

Hello, I'm kegwaan. I'm in the eighth grade (too young?), I enjoy video games and a few TV/movie series. I'm in the school band, I'm a percussionist and I play the drumset in our jazz band. I'm taking German at school, but mein Deutsch ist nicht sehr gut. I'm pretty fluent in TI-BASIC (I've been programming since last December), but I'd like to learn to use the xLib and xLibC libraries. I'd also like to learn z80 assembly, Java, C++, etc. I hope to someday become well known in the calculator programming community, like KermMartian or some of the others. That pretty much covers it. And I'm pretty bad at using forums, so you might occasionally see me post something where it doesn't belong.

I haven't made very many programs. One time I tried making a Fallout game for the TI-84, but it got lost in a ram clear. I've heard about Axe and thought about it, but I remember reading somewhere that it's easier to use when you know z80 assembly, so I was just holding off until I got around to learning both.

Drumset is kind of easy, but last year and the year before I never really got used to the instruments being heard, so I'm kind of afraid when I play that I'm playing too loud. I don't do too much snare in concert band, I mainly play xylo/marimba.

Fallout? For TI-84+? In TI-BASIC (I assume)? Ambitious for a member I've only just heard about :P If you decide to revive the project, do you think you could post it on the forums?

It definitely does not require learning z80 assembly to understand, though (I mean, it's the only other calc language I use :P ). The syntax is best described as BASIC-like Asm...ish. It's certainly easier, but not necessary at all. To each his own, though.

Yeah, it was going to be mostly test based and similar to the Skyrim TI-84+ game. I might try to revive the project, I go to the district high school in the morning before I go back to the middle school so I have three study halls and a lot of free time.

Post by: xlibman on December 14, 2015, 02:15:25 am
Actually Axe learning without knowing assembly is not that hard, but it takes longer to get used to what a pointer actually is. Regardless of the language, it's best to start small when you are new, though, since large projects can overwhelm your programming experience, especially at first. The trick is to start making your games as if they were gonna be demos, so that they're easier-to-manage projects, then once you are comfortable with what you have, expand.

I started calculator programming several years ago and my first few RPG projects only had about 2-4 dungeons or very short dungeons.

Also I only have two HP calculators, sadly, as others seemed very expensive to obtain on Canadian online stores. I got the HP Prime and HP 39gII. I have a bunch of TI calculators, though.

Hiya.

I've been in calc community since 2010 and took a long break and I'm planning to return to the community now that I have time to spend on.
I go by the other name in different site (Yeong in omni, yeongJIN_COOL in Cemetech) but I decided to use a completely different name from there because now that I look at it, welp, the names look kinda embarrassing <.<
All my calc knowledge is all in jumbles now except for TI-BASIC since it's easy language to get back to it any time, so I'll have to refurnish what I knew long time ago (mostly Axe which seems to be a major thing these days as far as TI-84+ goes) and maybe make something eventually and goshdarnit finish it for once.

So yeah, it's to see you all ^.^

It's good to see you're active in programming again, and I'm sure that whatever you make will be good. Axe is indeed a pretty big thing now, and it isn't that much harder than TI-BASIC. I think the extra speed and possibilities are certainly worth it, and if you have any problems, there will be a lot of people willing to help you with it.

Hey at least the first game is finished. :P

It's kinda funny now that you mentioned that because I'm STILL trying to figure out which genre I want the game is going to be because unlike the first one with the storyline I have in mind of it's gonna take a lot more pictures than 42 pictures I used in Silence 1 if I want it to be a point-and-click. With that said, I'm probably not touching it until I plan it out thoroughly without overreaching though. If one thing I learned from my mistakes in my programming days, it's that.

Anyway I'm glad you are back in the community, I thought you had lost interest or something in 2013 D:

I haven't programmed Axe in a long while, though, so I wouldn't be able to help. I switched back to pure BASIC on monochrome models (although I finished Supersonic Ball) before moving on to color calculators and hybrid BASIC again.


Also we got a programming contest, but there are only 7 days left :P

Heya @Leviathn and welcome to CodeWalrus. I hope you stick around. Just as a reminder, we frown upon double or triple posting unless it has been a while since the last post, so it's recommended to use the modify button instead. :)

Also you have to enter your Minecraft username in your profile on CW forums.

Welcome, Leviathn! If you know the right IRC channel and server to log on to, you don't need a CW account and 5 posts to go on IRC ;)

Also, is there any chance you could learn TI-83/84+ BASIC? Programmable calculators open a whole world of possibilities, and I think you'd do well to start exploring what is possible :D

Welcome to Codewalrus, Leviathn! Just out of curiosity, what programming experience do you have? Even if it's none, you could probably ask one of us to help you learn. Well, probably not me because I can barely program, but there's a lot of advanced users here who can help guide you through the processes.

Oh I didn't know that. Are there any benchmarks to prove it, though? And is the speed for startup time or page loading? I heard that Edge still has some issues displaying pages (eg Omni and CW sometimes shows just HTML code or something) but Edge and IE11 have come a long way since IE6.

Yes, I wrote nTxt, an on-calc assembler and some games for the Nspire. I'm working on a simple snake-like game for Android, but it's not finished or released yet. I'll probably post a topic if/when I finish it.

Hello, my name is Dexter!, I just joined this forum! ;D

I've been a short-time 'lurker' :ninja: and decided I wanted to join!
This community seems active and quite inviting, so I think I'll be happy being here, sharing my thoughts and projects!

I'm here mainly for the calculator community, I have three different graphing calculators, a TI 83, TI 83+, and I recently acquired a TI Nspire CX! (really happy about that!)

Today I re-added Ndless to my calculator after accidentally updating my system to 4.2.0 . (Yes, on accident, not my best moment..)
(I didn't expect Ndless to be updated so quickly, because I remember seeing that a previous update took ~7 months! But three days!? Really impressive!)
Right now I have a game boy colour emulator (gbc4nspire), nTris, nDoom, and nTxt installed on my system. (Really cool/handy programs!)

I plan to create applications for the TI Nspire CX as a learning experience for programming on (relatively) restrictive platforms.
The only programming language I'm competent at is C++, but that should be fine because it works well in the TI Nspire. :)
(I also understand C due to how similar it is to C++, but don't ask me to write in it! :P)

I'll see "ya'll" in the main forums!  :w00t: :crazy: :w00t:
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on February 23, 2016, 08:01:04 pm
Heya Dexter and welcome to CodeWalrus :walrii:

I'm glad that despite your TI-Nspire purchase, you still kept your older calculator models, since you can now use more softwares and there are still occasionally a few 83+ softwares coming out. And yeah Ndless once took 18 months to be updated, if I recall correctly. Sometimes TI is really quick on the OS updates, though, plus Ndless 4.2 won't run on newer hardware (I think revision W or something?), so I'm glad you got a calculator that supports Ndless.

If you want to create TI-Nspire applications, you can use Lua, C and I believe C++, so feel free to ask if you need extra help in a new topic. And don't forget to showcase your projects. :)

Same goes if you make programs for different platforms (including computer/consoles), especially considering those languages can also run on other platforms, thus, making it easier to port games. :P
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: DexterCD on February 24, 2016, 03:19:28 pm
Hello DJ Omnimaga,

I'm actually planning on collecting graphing calculators, so getting rid of the TI 83 and TI 83+ never crossed my mind!

18 months! Wow, I would've kicked myself if I had to wait that long because I accidentally updated my calculator. I'm very happy it didn't take so long this time!
Yeah, I've heard about the incompatibility with some hardware revisions, but the Ndless GitHub page (https://github.com/ndless-nspire/Ndless/commit/7d066ff7801bc9234e0f389e749cda17433128d3) says something about adding support for HW-W+, so maybe the Ndless team fixed it?  :) I hope so.

I'm installing the Ndless SDK right now! And I'm ~100% certain Ndless supports C++ (https://github.com/ndless-nspire/Ndless/blob/master/ndless-sdk/samples/newlib-c%2B%2B/test_newlib.cpp)!  ;D

I plan to make a program to aid the learning of the digits of pi! Obviously you don't really need Ndless for programs like that, but it's just a small project to learn how to work with the TI Nspire and the Ndless tools!

Also good idea to start small. Then you can gradually move up the latter in terms of project size and complexity. :)

Hello All!  My name is Anne and I'm new to this forum. ;D
In December I bought a TI-Nspire CX from a classmate, he only used it for linear algebra a couple years ago.  At the time, I didn't realize that the CAS has a lot more capabilities.  I'm already passed my math classes, now I'm in engineering classes where no regard is given to the type of calculator used (in the classes where a graphing calculator is allowed).  I'd like to install the CAS OS onto my CX along with anything else that would be beneficial for my electrical and computer engineering classes.  I'd also like to learn how to program my calculator to do tedious operations in engineering/physics/math.  I've only had introductory courses in C, C++, Java, and Assembly, so I'm afraid to do this on my own.  But I'm here for the helpful calculator community!   ;D  :blah: (I really wanted to do this emoji)  :w00t: (and this one too)

I, personally, think that coding is awesome. My problem is, I can't code to save my life. :P I've always wanted to learn C and ASM, but I can't find anyone to teach me or enough time to sit down and follow a tutorial.

I hope you are able to get help with your Nspire. I only have a CE, and no nothing when it comes to that. :P

Heya @hll9264  and welcome to the forums. If you need help or want to showcase something you made, then feel free to do so on the forums. :) Also a lot of people know C and C++, since they are useable on several calculators and platforms, and they might be happy to help.

By the way, since your TI-Nspire is a few years old, then this probably means you can use Ndless. I don't remember if hardware J through V can run nLaunchy, though (which lets you use a CAS OS on a non-CAS model, as well as Linux).

They're that invested in blocking Ndless!? That's really frustrating. :banghead: The Ndless developers seem very invested in what they're doing, so I'm confident they'll find something.

Yup, the project is going pretty well! I had a few problems, but most of them are resolved! Right now it features a leader board and allows you to fill in pi! If you make a mistake you're asked to fill in your name and then asked if you want to play again. I have many more ideas for the application, like a more complex scoring system rather instead of solely how many digits you know (time bonus etc..), and I want to make it prettier.

Quote from: Araidia
Do you know any good resources to learn c++ or did you learn it in school(I'm currently learning Python)?
I'm self taught. I learned C++ first by following online video tutorials, after that I got a modern C++ book (C++ primer, note: there's also a book called c++ primer plus. that one is not as good though). That book and the world wide web taught me everything I know about the language.
If you want to learn C++ I suggest you follow a few online tutorials so you're sure you'd like it, if you do like it I suggest buying a book because online tutorials can often be misleading and teach you bad programming habits.

Hello, my name is Andrew. I have an HP Prime that I got for my birthday. I enjoy building programs on my calculator (mostly simple ones) and wanted a place to share some of them and get help.

Heya @nullweist, I think I remember you from a few months ago, but you had a different forum account (Andrew Weist, at https://codewalr.us/index.php?action=profile;u=784 ). Would you like your two accounts to be merged?

I'm glad to see you back, by the way. We are not many HP Prime owners here but some have it and love it. I myself plan to make some games for it in the future (I only made a Tunnel game so far). If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and we will be happy to help whenever we can. Also feel free to showcase what you have made (calculator, PC, mobile, art, etc) :)

@aeTIos when I saw your small text, I lost the game before even zooming it, because I knew the text would end with that. :P

That would be great, I didn't like the username of the first one, and the only solution I could find was to make a new account.
Thanks.

Aah I see now. I thought you forgot your password or forgot you had another account. That can happen when users don't visit the site for a long time. @Juju , @aeTIos or @Streetwalrus can fix that (they can also change nicknames if you want it changed again in the future)

EDIT: Actually I have enough privileges to add your old posts to your new account, just not deleting the old account. :P (I also discovered a SMF bug that causes the option to recount the user post count to not work so I had to edit it manually)

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome! @Dudeman313 @Araidia @DJ Omnimaga  This is a pleasant community to be a part of  :love: With your guys help so far I managed to install Ndless on my TI-nspire CX! I had software version 3.0.2 and upgraded to 3.6 to perform the installation successfully.  Now I'm onto figuring out how to download the CAS OS!

Yall are the best!

We can also thank inside posts :) (besides, members who have less than 20 posts cannot vote and those who can can only vote once every 8 hour anyway, so sometimes, a reply is more convenient :P

We try to keep this community friendly. Just be careful in case a :walrii: gets loose somewhere on your computer screen, such as in topic #38 (https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=38.15) :P

Hi!

I am working as a embedded engineer, mostly with Linux but also with small mcu's. I am relatively new to hacking calculators. I did some Lua demos for the Nspire last year. You can find them on youtube channel (Michael Grunditz).
I have also been tinkering with assembler for my TI-84+.

Perhaps. I wanted to see how far I could push Lua. I can do a much higher resolution plasma, but that locks up the system and runs in like 1 frame each 5 seconds.

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself. I see some of you have come across my HP Prime 3D Racer game. It's my fourth serious Prime project after a solitaire card game, a Chip-8 emulator and Turing machine emulator. You can find those at the HPCC web site that I'm the web master for. Click on the Prime on the front page and scroll down to the bottom for the programs and club magazine articles.

I've been playing with programmable calculators since around 1978. I've progressed through the Commodore P50, TI-57, Casio fx-502p, Casio fx-702p, HP-41CV, HP-41CX, HP-71B, HP-48SX, HP-48GX and now I'm onto the HP Prime. My wife has a HP-32SII (she's a programmer and RPN girl). My eldest daughter has a HP-39gII. My youngest daughter has yet to be converted from her iPad mini and Galaxy S5, but I'm sure as Maths gets more fun for her she'll be twisting my arm.

I've recently found my old Casio MG-880, still working, still with its original batteries in my bedroom at my Mum and Dad's house. Brilliant game! I must write one of those for the HP-41 when I get some time.

If anyone is in London on the second Saturday of the month do come along to Imperial College and meet the HPCC crew. Details on our web site. Better still join up and get the club magazine posted to you - how old school is that!

Have fun.

Hi @PT_ and welcome to CW. :) Yeah I generally don't like doing any form of site advertising since people generally come on their own via signatures anyway, but some negative comments about the language project made me worried that it might not receive the attention it deserves, and if it's successful then it would be a major milestone in CE developement. I'm saddened that certain people put their language preferences before the increase of the TI-84+CE programming audience in terms of importance.

Heyo!

I'm AzNg0d, originally I was decently active on Omnimaga, but seeing as some of my favorite people (looking at you Juju and DJ) have since then moved here, I've decided to jump back into the fray!

I would change this old name of mine, but that may cause confusion so I'll keep it nearly the same as it used to be.

Anyways, thanks for having me!

Edit: I lied, it seems I did end up changing my name and I completely forgot to change it back when I was going to in my mind! It's Flippanteer now

Heya, nice to see you again AzNg0d. :D I remember when you were active in 2012 or so but then disappeared for a long while, returned in 2014 then vanished again, so I'm glad you're still around. This site is kinda similar to how Omni was back in the old days, but with less focus on calcs I guess. We just like to hang out here and I hope you enjoy your stay.

Heya WholeWheatBagels and welcome to the forums. I hope you enjoy your stay here. Don't be afraid to ask questions on the forums if you need any help and feel free to showcase your art and creations. We have a lot of beginners and experts who do.

Also weird music is awesome, especially if you mean obscure music that don't play on the radio. :) (I rarely ever listen to genres that play on the radio)

Also yep we can change your name. That happens when people joins from social networks. @Juju can probably change it now since he's online. :3=

I never heard of the acronym but I did see the full name often before. I never listened to them, though, but I see they're from the 80's so perhaps I will like :) (I like both hard rock and italo disco, but it depends of the band. For example, I like late 80's Alice Cooper stuff, some Crumbacher stuff and Radiorama, but my favorite is heavy metal such as Iron Maiden. Otherwise if we get into more recent stuff I am more into extreme genres, as you can see if you ever listen to some of my songs)

Im quite new to forums etc. but just bear with me, since you guys seemed like a nice place to chat and post our creations, I thought to myself
"hey... why not.".
I'm great at computers and I'm starting a youtube channel (the name is AGuy Gaming(you might not find me easily cause I didn't make any videos so far))

I guess thats it.

English is not my native language, so sorry for any spelling or grammatical error in advance.

Hello. ds here. I am a senior high student and my major device is TI-92+, it's also a m68k device anyway.

I code in C/C++ and Java, and I'm learning X86 assembly and m68k assembly recently, so hopefully I could get inspired here.

Because I have to prepare for NCAToC (National College Admission Test of China, something like SAT but 1000 times harder and cannot use any calculator dude!), so I may have few time posting here.

Um... I don't know what to say here. So let's just stop here. That's it. Thanks for paying attention. *white_noise* *speaker_cut*

Heya Jiahao Lee and welcome to the forums :3=

Don't worry about your English, it's pretty good. Most CodeWalrus members speak French or Dutch as native language but we also got a few German users. Glad to see another TI-68K user here. It would be cool if you could make some programs for the TI-92+ with your m68k assembly or C knowledge and I wish you good luck (you can always ask questions if you need any help).

Hopefully you can eventually find some extra free time to program and post. See you around :)

I actually have a TI-89, which can run some TI-92+ programs and games, but not all of them, due to the screen size. I also got a TI-92 but it's the non-plus model.

Welcome on Codewalrus !
I also got a TI-89 Titanium and while it's not too bad, it is clear that the Ti-nspire CX is superior in every way...

Also, since you are chinese, i feel the urge to do this...

Let's get Codewalrus harmonised :
FREE TIBET
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on June 26, 2016, 05:45:42 am
The main advantage the TI-89/92+/v200 calcs have over the Nspire series is that they can be programmed in ASM and C without any hacks and they feature an enhanced version of TI-Nspire BASIC (with getKey, sprites, everything). The Nspire was designed to replace other models, though (which failed with z80 calcs) so it took over.
Also, since you are chinese, i feel the urge to do this...

Let's get Codewalrus harmonised :
FREE TIBET
Now now let's not troll :P (besides, politics should probably go in their own topics like with the Paris attack)

I remember back in 2010-12 Omnimaga had a lot of Chinese members who now live in USA and even got members from China later. Many Coders of Tomorrow were born in China or had parents from there. But they're not active anymore since long ago. I wonder if at one point we will get another influx of Chinese users?
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: princetonlion.tibd on June 29, 2016, 06:06:49 am
I dunno, my friends in China aren't interesting in coding (I think) so I don't think I'll try to spread this to them.

Besides, they get annoyed when I try to type English to them and I type chinese at something like 1 wpm :P

Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: princetonlion.tibd on June 29, 2016, 07:38:57 pm
Oh yeah, I forgot about that :P

I think it was linked in Omnimaga IRC sometime ago. My problem is that reading Chinese with small spacing gives me headaches (plus I lost track of the lines sometimes). And also as I said, I type Chinese much slower than English.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on June 29, 2016, 09:55:19 pm
I don't think it was but it was posted a few times on the forums by Chinese users. The site was cited a lot on TI-PLanet and I believe those two sites are affiliates. I am curious if CnCalc would be interested in affiliating with us, but we kinda ran out of affiliates space <_<.


There was also SCalc for a while, but it seems to have shut down :(

Yeah, about that, we only told a few people about the site (the others had to find us via sigs, word to mouth and stuff) because our staff didn't want to spam >.< (so our main online friends that are hard to reach outside Omni were the first to know. )

Plus @Dapianokid left Omni about two years before CodeWalrus existed anyway, IIRC.

Yeah, we didn't wanted to stir a drama bigger than it already was, so we didn't outright announced it, put it in our sigs and avatars instead and used mainly word of mouth. We went with subtlety, and guess it worked.

Now to catch those members who left before CW became a thing and returned to see a website that became only the shadow of itself...

I am a sophomore in college, and my prior experience with calculator programming is really paying off in my classes. I don't do much programming at the moment, but as a piano performance major, music has become my primary focus. :)

I found this place via DJ's youtube. I've been feeling nostalgic, so I guess I have 4 years of stuff to catch up on or so.

Yeah, I did kinda disappear way back when, didn't I? I don't even remember what caused that, and my attempts to return weren't successful because I always managed to become sidetracked focusing on the music.
Phew, I'm reeling in from memories of a far less mature Dapianokid being scolded for his hubris...

Also yeah I got inspiration to make some color games recently. By the way, if you like RPGs I made Final Fantasy: Mana Force too :). Also beware of Opossum Massage Simulator, because it's a thing now. :P (it's an unnoficial sequel to Hong Kong 97).

IIRC you first left because your parents no longer allowed you to visit calc websites, right? Or maybe that was ordelore...

Also don't worry about maturity issues lol. Granted, some of us don't grow up but we all start somewhere no matter what. Also yeah CW is kinda random at times, so be warned (especially on the site shoutbox when you reach 5 posts and discover the /walrii command, or our pixel art skillz (https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=38.0)) :P

Hi, I'm Quinten. I have always been interested in computers and have dabbled some in programming. Almost a year ago now I had to get a TI-84+ CE-T for school, in which I was interested for a short time, and I tried creating games in pure BASIC (heh, thats not how this usually works). Recently I've gotten interested in them again, and I hope/intend to create some things for it over this summer.

Heya ColonelPhantom, welcome to the forums. Does the TI-84+CE-T run programs like Calcuzap that runs on the TI-84+CE? I am curious if it has full ASM and C support. The monochrome screen TI-84+T lacks ASM/C support.

Feel free to ask for help if you need any and showcase your stuff. :)

I hope you enjoy your stay here. :3=

To answer your question, yes,  my CE-T runs programs like Calcuzap just fine.

Hey there. If you still remember the name of northern_snow... it's me.
It has been quite a long time since I was active in the community. A lot of things happened. Scalc was finally merged into cnCalc through a lot of efforts, yet cnCalc is active no more...
IMO the current inactive situation of our Chinese community is mostly caused by the widespread access to smart phones. There are domestic brands like Xiaomi and Meizu producing cheap but powerful Android phones, the price of which can be even lower than the retail price of NSpire... BTW the second-hand grey-imported NSpires are still cheap. But it's not that cheap now when compared to a smartphone. You need to pay ¥300 for a second-hand NSpire CX, while the RedMi with Quad Core CPU, 720p 4.7inch screen, dual SIM card, 8MP camera, 1G RAM and 4G ROM only costs ¥700. So why calculator? Also, education system in China doesn't encourage the use of calculators -- in some schools, smart phones and calculators are both forbidden items...

And I have been almost addicted to RPN since I got my first HP calculator HP 48S. No more love for TI for a long time XD. I have quite a large collection of HP now, but programming in RPL is still hard (

Post by: E37 on July 25, 2016, 05:33:55 pm
Welp... Like all my social introductions this probably will be be kinda awkward.
I don't post often in "off topic" threads (anything not related to ti83/84 programming) but I am quite active on those I do post on.
For my experience, I have been a part of Omnimaga for about 6 months and have been programming my calc for 3 years.
For whatever reason, I can't stick to projects very well. I have started hundreds of programs... and finished less than a dozen.
As of time put into programming... lets just say that I put more time into it than is probably healthy.
Since I am always working on at least 2 programs at once anyway, I am always happy to pick another project up on request (as long as it isn't a port of a game - I can make my own version but not a totally faithful copy).
Here is a sampling of my work:
Editor: A small font program editor, and my proudest creation. I have implemented many features already, and am always open to adding new features.
Oops: Oops is a Axe library designed for combat games. It can handle huge amounts of "objects" and its only purpose is to handle a stack of them. (no collisions or anything fancy like that)
Solver: It adds a hook onto the standard screen letting you type in equations like "5+8A=94A^2" and spit out the answers for A (or any other variable) along with some other fancy features.
Staxm: a simple axiom that allows you to pop and push variables in Axe.
Slime... I never really finished Slime. It just starts and stops development but never really gets anywhere as I seem to start over each time...
I can post the files if anyone is interested in any of them.
Maybe I should have talked about my self more instead of just going on about my projects... Oh well.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on July 25, 2016, 05:41:25 pm
Hi @E37 and welcome to CodeWalrus. Glad to see a new programmer around. Also while programming too much might not be that healthy, at least you are allowed to program at all by your parents it seems.

Is the small font program editor available as demo by the way? You should make topics about your projects if you have time. I remember back then that some people wanted a small-font editor to see more lines of code at once when programming on-calc.

By the way, from what I remember, you were friend with @Dudeman313 from what he told me when he joined a few months ago. I wonder if you know him in real life or if you just met on Omni?

I hope you enjoy your stay :3=
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: E37 on July 25, 2016, 05:48:28 pm
I've attached the file for the small font editor. It is slightly outdated, but good enough for a demo.
Unfortunately my calc's link port is slightly damaged and it won't send apps... prgmEDITRSRC needs to be compiled with Axe as an app to work.
Is there a way to get files off of wabbitemu?
I have never met DudeMan313 in real life, but he happened to join Omnimaga at the exact time I had several projects that needed testing. (And we became fast friends after that)
When I get a chance I will make topics on my projects.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on July 25, 2016, 07:19:44 pm
Does the calculator send regular programs, though? I don't think it's a link port issue if it can't send apps. It has to be something else. I myself had a working 83+ that couldn't compile apps in Axe but could compile programs, but it could also send apps and programs fine. It's most likely OS or certificate-related.

In order to get files off WabbitEmu you need to right-click, then click View then Variables and you drag and drop what you want to your computer (some WabbitEmu versions might crash when doing so, though)

I downloaded the program now. :)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: E37 on July 25, 2016, 07:52:56 pm
I'm not sure what the problem is really. Its link port has always been weird. I have to clear RAM every file transfer and even then it doesn't always work. I am using unsigned... Could that be it? Almost every transfer it freezes afterward and I have to pull the batteries. I have tried reinstalling the OS several times.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on July 26, 2016, 05:35:35 am
Hm weird, I wonder if that's an issue that has been reported before? What OS, calculator model (hardware revision included), Boot code and OS do you use? You might need to create a new topic for that.

Yeah I understand the feeling and I was sad for a while too, especially considering I am the very one who created Omnimaga in the first place (in case you didn't know, because I think you joined Omni less than 1 month before I stepped down from my admin position). In my case it's more the fact that from 2005 and 2011 I fought so hard to make Omnimaga forums atmosphere like CodeWalrus is now and it managed to succeed. But unfortunately, many people outside Omnimaga didn't want such atmosphere to exist and tried exploiting my weaknesses. I could not witstand such pressure at a time where I was still suffering from depression in real life, which was starting to have its toll on my physical health. In other words, I was pretty much forced to step down and there was no long term chances of me becoming admin again at the time.

I still wanted Omni to remain the same even after stepping down, same for Juju, But the other admins decided that would not be the case. A lot of groups and companies that switch ownerships do that, so it's not like it's not common, but I still felt crappy because I devoted 10 years of my life to Omni, including 6 on the forums. Hence why I fought so hard to prevent drastic changes after I stepped down.

Yeah true, but more due to its lower popularity since its release like the HP Prime. The 82 is less popular more due to how old it is, but its popularity is increasing slightly now that it's a vintage platform.

The email they signed up with does look like Chinese, though. But yeah, I have Miku everywhere on my desk and I sometimes try to make her sing in French and it often completely fails.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on October 09, 2016, 06:14:02 am
The issue with French is that since Vocaloid sound quality is very poor (the amount of treble in particular is minimal) and was not designed for French, even if your song vocals have no accent, it's still hard to decipher.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Juju on October 09, 2016, 06:41:47 am
Most Vocaloid are designed for Japanese or English, and even then it needs a good effort so it won't sound weird. Some people did managed to make them sound good in another language, though.

Yes. I'm Chinese. And I think it doesn't matter which country one comes from in CodeWalrus.
But...
Code: [Select]
if (tibet == BELONGS_TO_TIBET)
{
free(tibet);
}
Okay I have heard about arguments in PicoDrive. In my opinion, it's a complex problem and it can't be judged by individuals. So just wait and see what will happen next.
But wait, shouldn't we talk about something useful rather than the sensitive topic?


Oh I'm a Vocaloid fan too, though I use UTAU more in recent time. Also Vocaloid has Spanish voicebanks now and before this it was also active in Spanish group.
As for 'EditMySong', it's a project I almost give up I haven't got enough time to make it due to lots of messy things.

Yeah I agree that sensitive topics should be discussed in a separate topic. We have a forum section for that anyway.

However, there is a long story behind gameblabla's Tibet-related comments. This all started when he released his TI-Nspire SNES emulator last year, which contained the "free tibet" string of text below the main menu. Members from Cncalc.org became pissed at him and TI-Planet and sent a cease and desist letter to force TI-Planet to take PicoDrive offline because it offended them. This resulted into public outcry on TI-Planet because Cncalc members were basically telling critor/lionel/adriweb how to run TI-Planet and one of them posted a rant on Cncalc in response to that.

https://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17177&p=193431
http://www.cncalc.org/thread-11899-1-1.html

So the Tibet-related trolling from gameblabla is pretty much in retaliation to Cncalc's massive overeaction. Not that we really like it, though, since it's considered trolling in this case, but I can understand where he's coming from due to the Cncalc incident.

As for UTAU I never heard of it. I should check it out.

I do agree. Just a curiosity, although it's useful to know because of timezones.

Oh I'm a Vocaloid fan too, though I use UTAU more in recent time. Also Vocaloid has Spanish voicebanks now and before this it was also active in Spanish group.
I haven't looked at UTAU, but for those who don't know, it's like Vocaloid, but it's free and you can easily make your own voices, looks pretty interesting. I also looked into Alter/Ego, which have, as far as I know, the only French voicebanks. Kinda easier than trying to make Vocaloid speak French with an English or Japanese voicebank.

And yeah, sensitive, off-topic matters such as whether Tibet should be freed can easily be made into a new, separate topic. Would also help keeping this thread on-topic, too.

Actualky it's PicoDrive. SNES emulator is newer and it doesn't affect.
By the way, emulators ported by gameblabla are really awesome. Big thanks to @gameblabla !

This resulted into public outcry on TI-Planet because Cncalc members were basically telling critor/lionel/adriweb how to run TI-Planet and one of them posted a rant on Cncalc in response to that.
We felt sorry for the improper actions and those who made situation worse had undertaken punishments they deserved. After all, we should respect other's differences.
Anyway, I hope both sides could cease fire and turn to a new page for the harmony of the community.

I haven't looked at UTAU, but for those who don't know, it's like Vocaloid, but it's free and you can easily make your own voices, looks pretty interesting.
Free to use and free to show off. But yeah, it takes much more effort to have better performance. So lots of audios sound as Ylvis says, 'I can't understand what you say!'
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on October 10, 2016, 03:33:39 am
yeah I checked again and realized it was Picodrive. My bad. Which reminds me, I need to give it a try again at some point to see if it now works on my calc. Critor had issues running it as well.

As for the Cncalc incident my main worry was that I hoped it would not end the affiliation with TI-Planet like what happened with Omnimaga and Cemetech in 2014. It seems like both parties (Cncalc and TI-Planet) are fine again, though. It's just a matter of different cultures and opinions. On a side note I sometimes visit CnCalc, but the issue is that I don't speak Chinese so I have to use Bing or Google Translate. D: Anyway I hope you enjoy your stay on CodeWalrus :walrii:

A few little things you shoul keep in mind:

- walruses are awesome and our religion is built around them so never(!) insult a walrus ^^ <3
- dont even try to post as much as Dj Omnimaga... <_< You won't make it, noone does.
- ask the community whenever you need help (and it's no problem when you sound stupid asking for the most basic stuff, I do so, too) ^^
- have fun ^^

Hello.
I'm a newbie C# and Lua developer. I say "newbie" because I've only worked with C#.NET and specific Lua VMs, not just plain Lua. I enjoy using environments how they're not supposed to be used, for example, trying to make games in WinForms, because it provides a challange that I can work on in my free time. Most of my friends think I'm some kind of genius, but really, I'm only a beginner, so expect me to make a lot of mistakes when talking about programming in general, and help me out if you have the time lol
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!

- probably makes a lot of mistakes
- would be glad if others hemped him
- already very good at multiple languages
- basic stuff is too boring for him

you came to the right place mister! Welome to CodeWalrus :D
Making mistakes is normal and making many of them only means you're learning more ^^
Feel free to ask the community whenever you need help with one of your projects and maybe share some of your older projects :)

Heya and welcome here. :) Actually that's one of the reasons why I continued using Music 2000 and TI-84+ BASIC for so long. They are limited but it's fun to make them do things they were not supposed to do. :) Feel free to showcase your softwares if you have any in the future. I also hope that you enjoy your stay on CodeWalrus :3=

Heya and welcome to the forums. :) I think you're the guy who runs the new M2k group on Facebook, right? Back in 2011, I stepped down from Omnimaga and handed the ownership of TIMGUL (a Music 2000 forum) to them, but in 2012 they chose to shut the latter down and we got what was left of the database (their backup was corrupted). However, now that we have CodeWalrus and hosting we could finally put the archives of the forums back online at http://archives.mtv-music-generator.com/ (they're in read-only mode and many song files are missing, so I still need to clean them up). While CW isn't 100% specific to Music 2000/3000/etc, MUsic 2000 users are still welcome to share their songs or other people songs, as we got a sub-forum specific to Music 2000. We could expand it to multiple sections depending of the demand in the future. As with ApexDevelopment, I hope you enjoy your stay :)

Also do you still plan to make new Music 2000 songs despite using LMMS?

Guess I'll introduce myself:

My name's Overreacted, and I've been fiddling around with TI-Basic ever since I got my first TI-83. Meanwhile I have upgraded to the plus version, and a friend of mine introduced me to Axe. I like to work on programs in Axe during math lessons (because they are boring as hell) but I was thinking on spending more time on them at home. Unfortunately that's also quite difficult seeing how I also have a pc there which is way more interesting than a calculator. However I still like working around with these things and occasionally ask a thing or two when I need help.

See you around!  :thumbsup:

Hi all! I am Hoobagee. I'm in my mid-20s, I have an 83+SE, and I used to do a lot of TI-BASIC programming when I was in middle / high school. I didn't touch it for many years, but three weeks ago I felt inspired to make a new game out of nowhere, and so I bring you Hoobagees 4. (https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=1771) Hopefully you enjoy it if you play it. I'm impressed to see that the TI community exists and seems to still be going strong after so many years. Way to go, everyone! :)

Hi.
The community will never die.
Absolutally never!
The community will spread to Mars.
And then it'll spread all accross the solar system, onwards to the galaxy!
One of the first things traveling on the first inter-planetary missions shall be graphing calculators. (Which use crappy display controllers)
And then, after the sun explodes, the calculator community still lives on. For all of eternity.

About 10 years on the 83+, although with big gaps in there. I didn't do anything of value from 05-08, didn't touch it from 09-10, did some stuff in 11 and then didn't touch it again until now.

On the PC, Python and Lua.

Woo, Walrus! :)

Hi @Hoobagee , nice to see you around and your game is fun so far. :) I hope you enjoy your stay.

And I agree about the TI community. While it's much smaller nowadays, there are always people who will find interest in programming for calculators and vintage platforms. And we have PC/console/mobile development sections and other things anyway, so we got plenty of users who don't do calculator stuff anymore who still stick around.

Hello! My username is "kitten", apparently. I don't exactly remember setting it as that, but, you know, whatever works. I have many pass-times, such as bricking my calculator, unbricking my calculator, and rebricking it in the way I bricked it in the first place! Fun. I'm meaning to learn to code, currently working on learning Python, but I frequently... don't do that. One might describe it as "laziness". I might describe it as "laziness". I have many devices, and not one will you find not having CFW, root, a jailbreak, or a hackintosh attempt (failed or otherwise). I've been on Omnimaga for a while, but since that site is pretty much dead (at least in the TI-Nspire section), I've decided to switch here. And, well, here I am!  :)

Heya (http://img.codewalr.us/bluecatii2.gif) and welcome to the forums. I don't do TI-Nspire stuff myself but a bunch of users here have that calculator and gameblabla still releases some games and emulators. :)

As for Omnimaga, that's a long story (there's a topic somewhere here and until recently there was a text on someone's website explaining what happened) >.<

What was your username back then on Omnimaga? :)
I myself have the nSphire as well as the nSphire CX CAS but dont really use them very much as I prefer the 84+ (not the CE) ^^
Also bricking ur calculator is a great way of learning, believe me xD

Hey guys well i never realized there was a hello section but now i say hello

I am a person who loves music, math and screwing around with stuff and i realized that graphing calculator have the power of games and i see a small community and join! I play i lot of video games but mostly on my gameboy. I also love board games and building stuff.

Heya @ztortat and welcome to the forums. :) I haven't grown up with the Gameboy much as I never owned one, but I did play Tetris and Mega Man a lot on my friend's. I mostly grew up with the NES and SNES but I sometimes play GB games on my Gameboy Player nowadays. Glad to see you are interested in game programming, as well as calculators and music. I hope you enjoy your stay. :)

Hello!

I've been programming calcs for 7 years. Been on omnimaga for a while, figured I'd go ahead and make an account over here.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: p2 on December 24, 2016, 11:59:44 pm
Welcome to the site camdenmil, hpe you enjoy your stay  :thumbsup:
What calcs are you working with? Casio or TI?
By chance the 83+/84+ (non CE) ? ^^

Have a walrus :walrii:
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: camdenmil on December 25, 2016, 12:07:43 am
Thanks for the walrus  :D

I have the most experience on the 83+/84+ (non CE or CSE) stuff. I've been doing some TI-89 stuff recently since I lost my 84+SE, need to get myself a new one.

I've also done a little bit on the HP-49g.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: p2 on December 25, 2016, 12:15:10 am
nice :D
If you prefer the 83+/84+ (like me) you should definitely try out the Reuben 3 click me (https://codewalr.us/1605/44856)
for BASIC RPGs you should give Illusiat 7 a try ;) click me (https://codewalr.us/1778/49641)
And you might like the Classroom Co-Op Pack as well, it was released just today :) click me (https://codewalr.us/1783/49827)
sry if I forgot anything, might happen, it's 1am... xD

Heya @camdenmil , I remember you from way back then on Omni. I had forgotten if you were into the TI-Nspire or z80 calculators, though, since there were many new members there at one point. Glad you're still doing calculator programming after 7 years. Also, welcome to CodeWalrus. I hope you enjoy your stay :)

As for the HP calculators, I was mostly into the HP 39gII until its discontinuation and replacement with the HP Prime, then I got the HP Prime. I never had the chance to buy an older model, though. Sorry that you lost your 84+SE :(

for BASIC RPGs you should give Illusiat 7 a try ;) click me (https://codewalr.us/1778/49641)
As a warning, though, this game uses ASCII art (I made it in 2002, but I recently added an easy difficulty mode to it, and you should avoid the hard mode :P)

Hello People.

My name is SJizzy and I am new to the forum. I own a TI-nspire that has two keypads. One is the TI-nspire keypad and the other is a TI-84 plus keypad. I use them both but I have recently been using the TI-84 plus keypad the most because I found out that I could do a bunch of programming on that one. I have come to this forum because I want to learn more about programming and I want to offer some knowledge of my own ;) Thank you.

SJizzy ;D

Post by: p2 on January 02, 2017, 03:57:25 pm
Hey there and welcome to the forum :)
so you're interested in the 84+ calculator and programming on it? great :D
you maybe already know it, but the whole 83+/84+ family is compatible so feel free to try any games/programs on the forum that are tagged as such :)
(TI83+, TI84+, TI83+SE, TI84+SE)
so this applies to you as well:
you should definitely try out the Reuben 3 click me (https://codewalr.us/1605/44856)
for BASIC RPGs you should give Illusiat 7 a try ;) click me (https://codewalr.us/1778/49641)

Can you maybe tell us a little about yourself, for example how experienced you are at programming? Or what languages you use // calcs you own? :)
Also where are you from? (what country) ^^ we have members from all around the wold, maybe even some close to you? :)

If you have any questions or need help (it doesnt even have to be calculator-related at all) feel free to ask anytime :)

enjoy your stay  :thumbsup:


*You dont HAVE TO answer any personal questions, it's just nice to get to know new members ^^ So i you dont want to, that's really no problem :)

I am  18 years old, I am only (slightly) proficient in TI-Basic, but i am trying to maybe learn C... My main language is english, but i can read and write russian, and (mostly) read and write Korean. I have a TI-84+SE, a TI-84+CSE, and a TI-84+CE. I live in the US (Lake Stevens, Washington). I also play the cello, and i enjoy making things (particularly out of Legos) and i also dabble in circuitry and electronics! :w00t: :walrii:  ;)

wow nice, you might be the first one on the site that speaks korean...   :thumbsup:
do you have friends or family there, or how comes you learned such an uncommon language?
I doubt they teach it in english schools xD

For electronics there should be a couple of interesting projects on the site ;)
Or maybe share one of yours? ^^

Welcome to the forum @Raiseit :)

How old are you if I may ask and what programming languages do you prefer? :)

Dont worry about your language, most of the staff guys speak english fluently (me not lol) and many regular members do, too :)
Sure you should use english in Posts, but at least in IRCs you could switch fo French in necessary ;)

Heya and welcome here Raiseit. :) I hope you enjoy your stay. Also don't worry about English mistakes, most CodeWalrus members don't speak English as native language. There are even times when people speak Dutch or German inside the shoutbox so people could speak French too if they wanted (we usually switch back to English when English-speaking users come). :) (Basically, the allowed IRC languages are English, French, German, Dutch and Hebrew)

Heey everyone!

Sooo I am a Civil Engineering student and just bought the TI-Nspire CX CAS.
I am currently studying mathematics and civil engineering (construction).
In my spare time I try to solve equations and I phylosophate with a group (every thursday).
I am also really interested in Astrophysica, Quantum mechanics and economics.

Currently I am not familiar with programming. A lot of my friends do program but I just like to look ^^

So I am really busy with everything at the same time actually, but it works out fine :)

Welcome to the site @kevin1d :D
astrophysics, baah, totally not my stuff  :ninja:
But we got some other physists (is that the right word?) around ;)

Also the nSphire CX CA is really a nice one (I got the same one even tho I mostly use my monochrome ones).
You should give nDoom a try, it works pretty good with the trackpad ;)
But just so you know in advance: It's pretty much normal the TI Connect software only works 50% of the time, dont panic ;)

are you also into programming or interested in it? :)

Well I am interested in programming but I never put enough time in it to last. So now I am more willing to learn it again.
I'm going to download nDoom right now and yeaa I knew the software wouldn't always work. ;)

I used to have a TI-84 Plus but it's broken -.-

But I also guessed this is a forum where I can just have a chat on different topics then the weather and so. ;)

yeah, we're focused on calc development, but also have big sections for retro gaming in general, general programming and music+drawing ^^
But nuuuu your poor calc :'(
The 83+//84+ family happens to be the most famous one, many favorize it for obvious reasons ^^
Even now the CE version is out (color screen version) many continue using it :) (take a look at Reuben Quest 3)
if you want to start programming, the 83+//84 is actually on of the best platforms to begin with ;)
it's pretty simple and there's support for beginners EVERYWHERE on the site as most of us worked with it ^^
I sadly cant tell you too much about programming on the CX CAS, but I believe Lua Language is used for that model :)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: kevin1d on January 31, 2017, 12:00:53 pm
Hmmm okay, I'm also going to look at the other topics ofcourse.
Plus even though I don't know so much of it I like to read about it so :)

Yea I actually don't really know what happend to it, but I have it at home and still need to open it and try to fix it. Just a little project :)
But I worke with the 84+ a lot and it worked really fine, but I think I can get more out of the Nspire CX CAS.
I'm going to try and fix the 84+ fast so I can start my programming again ^^

And what do you do exactly p2 ?
Studying, working or is this a hobby?

Hello everyone... I stumbled across this site via DJ's signature.

Some of y'all already know me; but for those who don't here is a short bio...

I've been a part of the TI community since 1997 (that makes me an old man). I purchased my first TI calc in 1996; it was the original TI-92. Followed by a TI-89 in 1998 -- which I bought from Dimension TI.

I learned 68K assembly and C/C++ right about that time... before that I only knew Commodore 64 BASIC, Apple BASIC, and DOS GW-BASIC.

Here are some of the projects that I have completed:

Ultima V - POTY 2008  (port from PC & C64)
(http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/ss/774/77443.gif)

Astrosmash (port from Intellivision)
(http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/ss/710/71092.gif)

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (port from Intellivision)
(http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/ss/779/77905.gif)

International Karate (port from C64)
(http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/ss/705/70501.gif)

I am currently working on Jumpman (port from C64)

Those old screenshots. Lovely stuff (I haven't used my TI-89T in ages, I should really play some of those again) :3

Also hi Ranman and welcome to the forums. Glad to see you're still around in the TI community and doing fine. I was wondering what happened after 2013 when you disappeared (although I remember you also left around 2010 for a few years). Jumpman looks very promising. I hope it gets finished. :)

And yeah I created Omnimaga, but then things happened and it ultimately led to the site splitting in two D:

By the way, didn't you also do some Casio calculator BASIC? I forgot which model, but IIRC you said it was in the early 90's. I got a few old models such as the fx-7000G and 7700GE, both of which uses the 1st-gen Casio Basic (with no getkey input). Also, since you do C, did you know that the TI-84 Plus CE supports C, via MateoConLechuga's C SDK/Libraries? I dunno how different CE C is to 68K, although the calculator almost has as much RAM as the TI-89.


I hope you enjoy your stay :3=

2010 to 2012 was not a good period in my real life.
2013 to recently... lost motivation after HDD crash in conjunction with the loss of my backups (which I recently found)

Yes... I did some Casio BASIC programming on the old FX7700G and the FX6300G... I still own the FX6300G. It's still the coolest graphing calc ever made. A whopping 25x40 pixel screen and 400 bytes of memory -- still enough memory and screen to make an Artillery game complete with mountains, wind, and multi level opponents.

I own the following calcs currently:
- TI-89 HW1
- TI-92+
- Casio FX6300G
- Casio FX9860G Slim
- Tandy PC-7

I'm seriously considering getting a TI-84CE

A whopping 25x40 pixel screen and 400 bytes of memory -- still enough memory and screen to make an Artillery game complete with mountains, wind, and multi level opponents.

I own the following calcs currently:
- TI-89 HW1
- TI-92+
- Casio FX6300G
- Casio FX9860G Slim
- Tandy PC-7

I'm seriously considering getting a TI-84CE
Yeah I remember your neck issues around 2010-12 >.< and other things. I actually had neck issues since early 2009 and they peaked around 2013 IIRC, but they are nowhere as bad, just annoying.

And yeah the 7000G had 400 bytes of RAM too IIRC. I once wanted to make a JRPG with it but got carried away by other things. I made one on the TI-81 under 2400 bytes of RAM, though (which could have been much smaller had I used the Input command in a point-and-click fashion.)

The FX-9860 Slim is amazing too, other than the fact Casio thought it would be a good idea to never release OS 2.00 for it, leaving its users in the cold. :( OS 2.00 added many BASIC commands and math functionalities to the fx-9860G and AU. The Slim was cool because it reminded me of the Nintendo DS.

Hi,
am playing with pocket calculators since the first came here/germany on the market (Casio FX 502P, later Casio FX 602P). Now I use several newer, TI Voyage 200, some Casio FX, Classpad 300+, Nspire Touchpad/cx cas. My interests: programming little tools, may be a text adventure (just trying to do with some lua code from jim bauwens and jens editor). My experience is not profi level but hobbyist, doing it for fun, not for monumental projects.

Welcome to the site, @Krillan  :)

Are you rather specialized on Casio or on TI? Most guys tend to chose one side ^^
Also maybe you want to give a little 2D RPG a try?
Once you get the rendering is done, those game are usually rather easy to write yet give u pretty impressive results :)

Hi,
that were really monsters at this time, FX 502 had 256 =in words: twohundred and fiftysix= bytes for programming. The FX 602 hat already 512 bytes and also alphanumerical display. Alphabetical signs were on the keys with 2nd function. And both could with the Interface for cassette saving/loading also play music (special overlay for entering notes). Wonderful machines, got my FX 502 for special price as last one in shop for about 200 DM (FX 602 was just arriving). The 2 batteries with silver oxide are running about some years.

Was 1st at omnimaga, its interesting for me, several info about nspire, but now I get no answer to my questions about micropython, nassembler and some other things. Then found there the way to codewalrus:-)

Hello,
hm... deciding which calculator to prefer? I would if I could... For some time I liked voyage 200, but the display is really awful. Then I used the Classpad 300+, what a nice thing with its geometric and 3d functions. But the display... Then the CP 400 came, but casio did what they could to take anyones interests away, it's awful slow system, half cpu speed... No, also not the right thing. Now with nspire touch and later cx cas it's nearly the same with it's bad basic und strange lua (never experienced to get so much confused by a language, more than by c, and that menas something). So I prefer nspire cx cas at this time, but I don't like it really.

2d adventures, hm... there is an old style I played ages ago, like Das schwarze Auge and such with isometric graphic in fights and 2d in cities. hat ones with sight from above i don't like, they look often rather rude and plumpy :-). At this tme I try to write a text adventure. It seems it gets more an ebook on the nspire than a game...

Ach menno, jetzt brech ich mir hier einen ab mit meinem holperigen Englisch; hab vergessen, dass Du auch Deutscher bist :-). Hab grad ne halbe Odyssee hinter mir, wollte unbedingt den Nspire programmieren. Aber irgendwie klappt das mit keiner Sprache so richtig. Und als ich mir C++ dafür ansah... fiel ich fast in Ohnmacht. PHP und 18 dependencies installieren, nur um dann mit C++ anfangen zu können. Nicht das Wahre...

Mit 5 Aktiven meinst Du sicher hinsichtlich des Adventures? Ich bin nicht abgeneigt, bei einem Projekt mitzumachen, aber ich bin zu selten dabei, um mir eine Sprache so intensiv reinzuziehen, wie es dafür nötig wäre. Das schaurige Lua vergeß ich schon, wenn ich mal 3 Wochen nichts damit mache.

By the way, when you want to add new content to your posts you should use the edit button to avoid double-posting, unless it has been a considerable amount of time between each post, so that it's easier to follow the discussion.

I didn't know you were on Omnimaga, but  now that you mention it I think I might have seen your nickname there before. Most of us used to be there but then something wrong happened which led to that site splitting in half, so here we are now.

And yeah the fx-CP400 has a serious speed problem. Some programs that run in 10 seconds on the Voyage 200 will run in 6 minutes on the fx-CP400. The worst of that is that the calculator lacks ASM/C support.


By the way, for text adventures, you might want to take a look at nFrotz for the TI-Nspire CX. It lets you play old ones.

I was talking about 5 active members in the forum that speak German.
That would be @Sorunome, @DarkestEx, @p4nix, @p2 and now you as well :)

ab 5 Posts bekommst du übrigens auch Zugriff auf unseren Chat. :)
Darin darfst du auch Deutsch schreiben, aber wir wechseln eigentlich immer wieder zu Englisch sobald nicht-Deutsche dazukommen ^^
Wenn du also mal Hilfe brauchst und es mitm Englisch nicht klappt, einfach fragen :)
(ist so eine mehr oder weniger streng befolgte Regel damit sich keiner Ausgeschlossen fühlt) :)


If you have such old calculators (which is awesome) I start wondering how old you are ;D

Hello! I am an active Cemetech user and have heard a lot of good things about this site. I am interested in AI, Machine Learning, Physics, Computer Science (what else), Music/Music Theory, and Geometry. I am decently well versed in Java, JS, and TI-Basic, the latter due to my ownership of both a TI-84+ CE and a TI-85.

Welcome to the Site @_iPhoenix_  :thumbsup:
Are you studying physics or computer science or something like this...? U sound like my brother :ninja:
Also if you're into TI basic and own a CE then you should definitely get a regular 84+ as well and do some TI Basic with it, you're gonna love it ;)

I don't know you (not a cemetech member) so sry for asking, but where are you from? :)
Maybe Germany? ;)

Yes, I am studying both. I am planning on getting some calculators later, and rather high on that list is the 84+.
I am from the US, but my Cemetech profile believed that I am "Either drooling over some source code, or spearheading the robotic revolution."

depends on what is broken of cause, for example if the screen is broken then you can spend weeks trying to replace the old one..... :/
But for the 2 83+s I definitely see chances of fixing them or at least one of them :)

Considering buying all necessariry parts would cost me more than an used 83+, I would rather sell the calcs for $10 as-is for anyone willing to repair them.


Also my 83+ calcs used to work fine (except one had a busted link port), but after 2-3 years of non-use, I put batteries in them and the calcs wouldn't work anymore

I do remember seeing you the other day on Cemetech and being happy that you have a TI-86, but I didn't use it since 2009 so I would need to get my link cable out of the closet to give mine a try again and help you. I only made one game for it (which was a port of a TI-81 BASIC remake of Illusiat 1) :)

Hello, my name is Matthew going by the alias "Mazhat".

I program in C++ programming, z80 ASM (opcode-wise only as that's how I learned it :'( ),
and some little trinkets of other languages,
but I want to learn from you guys.

I live in Ontario Canada, hope that's vague enough haha.

This website excites me as I didn't live through the early personal computer era.
This website is like going to the 1970's
when everything was new and undiscovered.

Thank you for this opportunity which I would have never had otherwise :)

Also I love DJ Omnimaga.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on March 14, 2017, 09:32:27 pm
Heya Mazhat and welcome to CodeWalrus. Glad to see another programmer around (even though I haven't written a line of code in a loong while lol). I am surprised that there are so few Canadians on CodeWalrus since it was founded, since my former site (which is still around) used to have many. The only two other Canadians here are myself and Juju. D:

For which platform do you program the most, by the way? I agree about the 70's part, especially since the Z80 CPU is from around then and most TI calculators that people here use or used have a Z80 or eZ80. Thankfully, though, TI calculators have plenty of documentation available, so Z80/ez80 ASM/C programmers could push them to their maximum potential (one notable example being gLib 3D)  :)

I hope that you enjoy your stay. :)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: mazhat on March 14, 2017, 09:55:10 pm
We are the Canadian trio now. I do hope for more of us.

I am Windows-OS dominant, as for calculator-wise I program for the TI-83p and TI-84p.
I have only been seriously programming since 2013.

I feel like I don't have "real programming experience".
I can make path finding, sorting algorithms, and games (light),
but I can't make kernels, emulators, etc (heavy and down to the metal) :(

I've heard rumour that the reason that TI gave out the documentation for the calcs is because of
communities like this one. I hope that's true, because that is cool.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: p2 on March 14, 2017, 10:14:26 pm
Hey there and welcome to CodeWalrus, @mazhat  :thumbsup:

i know that feeling of not having any experience (but yet knowing a lot of stuff already) but trust me, once u spend a year studying it in school or job, that's all change :)
Also the guys doing that kind of programming... they're no average humans <_<

If you're looking for a nice challenge, I'd really recommend you to make a 2D RPG.
The basis (rendering the map plus movement) is rather simple and done quickly, but you can make it incredibly advanced (smooth scrolling, multiple layers, map changes according to storyline, ...)
Such a project should keep u busy for a few months, but still stay simple enough ;)

And for ur location: it's fine like that xD
It's cool to know if ur living close to another guy, but we usually don't share any detailed information unless we plan a member meeting (which won't be public) ^^
*south-west germany here  :thumbsup:

btw are u in machines and robots or pure software dev or into web dev? :)
This decicion might help u find ur way :)

Have a walrus!

Post by: mazhat on March 14, 2017, 10:37:05 pm
Thank you, p2!

High School programming is very easy. 92+'s for me :)
I imagine you're talking about post secondary, and jobs, which scares the socks off me, haha.
I'm glad that I can share the feeling with someone else :D

An RPG sounds like quite a lot of fun, I may just try it.
It's much more fun making things when you got a challenge!

As a child I loved electronics, I had a kit that had transistors and LED's and resistors, etc.
I used to break stuff open, but I never understood how they worked. Now that's all changed!
I don't really like web-dev (HTML-wise, I like hearing about the back end though) It's not in my personal interests.

I have two soldering irons (one was never used because my weaker one works fine :) )
when winter is over I have plans to de-solder stuff and build a switch-Calculator.

I have only been seriously programming since 2013.

I feel like I don't have "real programming experience".
I can make path finding, sorting algorithms, and games (light),
but I can't make kernels, emulators, etc (heavy and down to the metal) :(

I've heard rumour that the reason that TI gave out the documentation for the calcs is because of
communities like this one. I hope that's true, because that is cool.

They did give some documentation back in the days until around 2004, if I remember, but afterwards the info they gave was minimal. It seems like in 2007 or so, they started worrying about us tampering with exam modes and stopped supporting ASM/C development (although the TI-84+CE still got ASM/C support, at least). A lot of the documentation was found by various TI community members over the last two decades or so.

Thank you as well, Juju!

Quebec is actually very close.
My family and I like the Buffet des Continents. The rare times we go out to eat, we eat there :)
I also went on a hike with my class and it was nice to be back in the forest,
very fun, very cool!
Too bad I got a mouth full of flying bugs, haha.

Lol my budget is too limited for anything more expensive than McDonald's with coupons/mobile offers nowadays. So no Buffet des Continents for me (I don't even kniw if we have one reachable via public transit here).

Hello CodeWalrus!

A Planète Casio fellow suggested me that there were some projects worth of interest around here, and that I may do my bit towards this activity. I was naively expecting a somehow small forum since it's about 3 years old, but the place is actually more lively than Planète Casio itself. Well done!

So here I go. I've been programming fx-9860G models for quite a few years now (maybe 4 or 5), and I trust I've mainly been sticking to this platform because of its lower screen resolution (so that a dev' like me could draw at least recognizable... things), power (optimizing programs is rather fun after all), and because it's really easy to customize. I've been getting interested in lower-level development recently, which means I've started writing interrupt handlers, disassembling some syscalls and bypassing the system to execute drivers the way I want. This led to a project called « gint » (which is pronounced 'guin', and trust me, not a single Planète Casio member pronounces it the right way), which is a library that extends add-in development on fx-9860G. I have been mostly programming in C during all this period and I'm getting quite experienced when it comes to this language (I've been using it for something like 8 years).

On the non-calculator side, it mainly goes about listening to epic music (trying to compose a bit), writing some short fantastic stories, and getting interested in all the computer science theory, from data structures and the theory of languages to operating system development.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that I'm from the Planète Casio staff and that I'm infiltrating your community to carry out an industrial espionage mission. :P

Thanks for reading this, and while I'm at it, how come the footer still shows 2014-2016?
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on March 18, 2017, 03:57:32 pm
Heya Lephe, I assume you are Lephoenixnoir, right (since you say you're from Planète Casio staff? Welcome to the forums. I need to check Planète-Casio more often (I got kinda busy and side-tracked with many things last Fall, but Planète-Casio is one of our affiliates and I check the front page regularly as well). I got a FX-9860G since 2009 and it got a lot of potential for great games and development. I stuck with those lower-res calcs for similar reasons, by the way. It was much easier for me to draw graphics :).

Also glad you are interested in writing music. I wrote music since 2002 myself. If you make something, you should share it in the Music showcase and production category by the way :).

As for the footer 2014-16 thing, thanks for pointing it out. I should really get this to change automatically :P. And yeah, while we have only been around for 2.5 years, we somehow managed to have levels of activity that are not bad, although the excitement from 2015 kinda died down a bit. I hope you enjoy your stay :3=

Hello and welcome to Codewalr.us, Lephe!

This website is somewhat a spiritual successor to the old Omnimaga website,
that could explain why there's so much activity here, because users could transfer over :^)

Also good luck on the infiltration, we've sent the FBI, CIA, KGB and JTF2 to your house.





Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on March 18, 2017, 05:06:46 pm
Well, to clarify, I wouldn't say it's the direct successor of Omnimaga, but rather the direct successor of Omnimaga as it used to be until July 2011 (or arguably, November 2013)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Lephe on March 18, 2017, 08:01:59 pm
Well, I would have liked to show up and say "nope, I'm actually Dark Storm", but you guessed correctly DJ Omnimaga - the principle of least surprise, I guess. I'll make sure to tell you if I ever manage to write a decent piece of music (which I doubt, but who knows, I'd even say I'm on something good right now).

So it was you mazhat who sent all those folks to my house? Well, thanks a lot. I'm still stuck with them and I'm not sure they'll let go of me before a few more hours. Especially the Canadians, they obstinately refuse to leave unless I give up on this mission. They seem pretty influential around here :P

I really don't know much about communities that originated in other countries than France. Could you explain a bit what you mean, DJ Omnimaga? I would really like to know what happened.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on March 18, 2017, 08:11:33 pm
Actually Dark Storm already has an account here :P. As for what happened on Omni, the first post of the following topic should explain more in details, although it doesn't mention everything since the post is incredibly long to begin with https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=676.0
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Lephe on March 18, 2017, 08:29:24 pm
Thanks for this! I read the whole post and I pretty much realize how hard it can be when communities like this are passed on to new maintainers. As for what CodeWalrus stands for, I would think that being transparent is a good habit. Maybe we actually need to be clearer about what happens on Planète Casio sometimes. :P
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on March 18, 2017, 08:32:02 pm
Well to be fair, my biggest worry about PC was the risks that the v5.0 upgrade would break all old URLs and force other community websites to update their old news, articles, tutorials and download links to point to the new locations. Both Omnimaga and United-TI did this and half of the community got pissed at them.

And sometimes it doesn't take a new owner to change everything on a community. Just look at Capcom and Konami <.<. What was bad about the Omni changes is that as the founder, I not only spent over half a decade trying to make the Omni forums what it is while trying to persuade the rest of the staff to keep it as it is no matter if I remain admin or not, but also I was forced to step down due to health issues and certain community users outside Omni and afterwards it quickly became clear that I would not ever be allowed to return in the team again.

@mazhat They  do, in the sense that they partly achieved  their goals. They wanted to make the site more attractive to Cemetech users and managed to attract a few people from there, but I wish it was not done at the expense of the traditional Omni users.

I created this account primarily to leave a little post/thank you in a specific thread, but the community sounds like a pretty nice one so I figured I'd stick around and say hello!

My name's Decon Theed; I don't have any coding experience, but I write music- including some soundtrack work here and there on a couple of low-key (and still in development) indie games. I used to primarily post on Omnimaga's old TIMGUL forums back when they still ran under the name J-MACHine, and I still use the same software I used back then in t'good old days; Music 2000. No idea if linking stuff is considered rude or not, but I post my music for streaming via a personal soundcloud account here: https://soundcloud.com/103_records (https://soundcloud.com/103_records)

Other'n that, there's not much else to say; I'm a big music fan and collector (there's not a single genre of music I don't like, but I favour various forms of Electronic music and Video Game music in particular), and I'm also a fairly big fan of video games- particularly arcade games. I've written a few pieces relating to video game music both for personal projects and for my job as a freelance content writer, and I research the subject in my spare time (although I'm by no means an expert on it  ;)). Oh, yes; I also host a small netlabel via bandcamp called 103 Records, which serves both as a place to host my own music as well as music by friends or associates of mine - https://103records.bandcamp.com/ (https://103records.bandcamp.com/)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on April 28, 2017, 10:08:53 pm
Heya J-Machine and welcome back :D  I remember your music and occasionally listen to it when going through the remnants of my TIMGUL backups. I liked the 90's style VGM style.

By the way, I started making more VGM a few years ago. You should check my songs An Obestian Tale, Mysterious Island and Generic Battle. ^^

I recognise a few of the old releases from back in the day ;) I'll definitely have to go through it all when I get a bit of time to spare.

I hope in the future we can bring back some of the former TIMGUL users that still make music, especially Music 2000/3000/etc. We already have one Music 2000 section but could definitively expand it if one day it's necessary. Or maybe one day the old TIMGUL database could be merged entirely with CW's but that would be very time-consuming and requires all current topic IDs to be redirected to new ones (eg 2018 would redirect to 12018, 2019 to 12019 and so on for TIMGUL topics, while 2018 would redirect to 22018 and 2019 to 22019 for CW topics) while keeping the redirects working forever on both sites. It would allow people to retrieve their old TIMGUL accounts and merge them with CW, though, assuming they still have access to their old e-mail addresses and passwords.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: Decon Theed on May 05, 2017, 03:19:40 am
God, I daren't even think where the folks that used to hang 'round TIMGUL have gotten to these days; I never really stayed in proper contact with any of 'em. I do know Not a Number still produces music, but I think they've moved on from music M2K by this point. There are definitely a few folks keeping the Music series love alive out there besides us TIMGUL faithfuls, though, so it's not all doom and gloom~

As far as merging the databases go, it's a neat long term goal but yeah, I can see it being a hell of a lot of hard work.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on May 05, 2017, 05:01:24 am
Yeah there used to be a Facebook page but it was shut down when the site disappeared. I know Not a Number is still on Facebook and Twitter and used to post on Omnimaga (which pretty much replaced TIMGUL after the 2012 closing) but he disappeared from the latter after 2014. Most TIMGUL users probably ditched Music 2000 long before the site closed but they still posted new songs there.

Nowadays the other issue is people no longer like forums as they're kinda outdated compared to social medias, so getting the Youtube Music 2000 users to share their songs in the Music 2000 section here would be an uphill battle (as it was during the final years of TIMGUL)
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!

ICE is a great language, you'll grasp it rather quickly, I'd imagine!

Hello EV G, and welcome!

I think you'll find ASM a bit unnecessary for the more powerful calculators such as the CE ones,
but it never hurts to go low level though!
I haven't tried ICE, but if it's anything like Axe it'll be great.
Axe was a silent revolution on it's own.

What calculators is it you're working with? :)
I never used ICE beofre and didnt work with Axe in a long time but did a lot back then, first with 0.5.2 and then with 1.1 I think ^^
For me it was on pretty much every device of the 83+//84+ family ^^
And I agree on that last part @mazhat  ;)

Post by: PT_ on May 28, 2017, 08:10:53 pm
Glad to hear that you are picking up ICE, it's rather easy but powerful, and in my opinion, easy to learn :) If you have any questions, post in the ICE Compiler thread, make a seperate topic with the question (be sure to tag me with @PT_ since I don't see all the topics). Also, you can visit http://ice.cemetech.net, which redirects you to a page with some useful information (I still need to add more information to that lol)

Hey, I am assuming you have some type of TI 83/84 calculator. I highly suggest learning to program your calculator, it's not that hard to start off (I made an entire game just from being self-taught) and if you enjoy it you can make some really cool programs! A great resource that helps you get started off is the TI-Basic Starter Kit (http://tibasicdev.wikidot.com/starter-kit). Also a great reference is the Command Index (http://tibasicdev.wikidot.com/command-index) which I still use all the time!  ;)

Hello, Steve!
There is many different languages for the TI-83 series of calculator (which I'll assume you have).
There's TI Basic, AXE, and assembly (The more known ones.)
I recommend AXE as it is as easy to learn as TI Basic but with almost as much power as Assembly.

Have fun!

Post by: p2 on September 03, 2017, 08:38:01 pm
hey there Steve,
Since you're new to this topic:
BASIC is, as the name says, a very basic language, It's super easy to use but can't do that much things and is rather slow - but enough for BASIC games  ;)
Axe is something special some genius came up with. it's basically basic, but with all kinds of new commands (maybe twice as many) and you have to learn a little more about how the hardware works to fully understand it. But it's incredibly fast and can do almost anything! It's special since you will have the App AXE on your calc, that will compile (translate) ur axe code to ASM, making it super fast.
ASM is like 0980F0A375BB8DA1 and weird stuff liek that (hexadecimal code)... noone except the ASM guys understand it, aaaand it's different for every CPU (so ur pc, ur calc, ur second calc, ur smartphone... ASM is different on each of them...) It's suuuper hard to learn, but it's soooo fast x.x

if you already know the VERY basics (loop, if, else, ...) then start with Axe and you will have a lot of fun  :thumbsup:
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!

I think BASIC then AXE, to let him get accustomed to programming on-calc, first.

Post by: c4ooo on September 03, 2017, 09:36:01 pm
I think BASIC then AXE, to let him get accustomed to programming on-calc, first.
I think one of the Upsides of Axe is that you can easily program in Axe with a ti-basic mindset. And when you get more experience with the calc, you can start switching to a C/asm mindset, using things like direct memory access(*ahem ahem ICE*) and inline asm for better optimization.
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on September 05, 2017, 05:48:56 pm
If you ever get a TI-84+CE then you can use ICE, which is similar to Axe.

Post by: Juju on September 09, 2017, 07:52:21 pm
Assembly code is pretty much the closest we have to binary machine code, each keyword translates almost directly to machine code, plus a few preprocessor stuff to help you a bit, e.g. label names translating to whatever address the label is on.

I guess most of us were similar:
We started programming on calculators, mostly the 83+/84+ family, then learned xLib, later axe or ASM, and finally moved to PCs, and now we're fully fledged software devs still sticking to the forum where we grew up <3
But I think that's actually not a bad thing as new members still get a lot og´f help in calculator problems, while we also get more and more help for other stuff like C# or Java ^^

Hi I'm a very long in the tooth IT guy and Session Guitarist, now retired. I started in IT in 1979 writing small business applications on an HP-97 ending up in charge of a worldwide network running on servers and mainframes. A few years ago I came across the HPCC after buying a time capsule unused HP-41CX plus printer and card reader. Since then I've concentrated on programming and repairing vintage programmable calculators and recently I was sent a free TI-59 from Israel that had belonged to a scientist who had worked at Los Alamos. I quickly repaired the battery pack and it's the first 59 that the card reader is working.
In the last 2 weeks I've repaired a Commodore PR 100 (new battery pack - the internal 3 AAA pack for a Tomy baby monitor is ideal) although I can't find a printed manual or 6v DC ADAPTOR. I've also bought another time capsule, an unused Sharp PC-1251 pocket compute with its CE-125 base unit with tape micro cassette and printer.

I myself was gifted a TI-57 a few months ago but I don't have the adapter thing to power it yet I think. It's an interesting device but I assume the TI-59 is more popular. I hope you enjoy your stay. :)

You can run the TI-57 internally with a 9v battery but NOT the TI-59, you'll fry it. I used a 3 AAA battery pack used for a Tomy baby alarm as a replacement pack. If you have an Elektronika MK-61 calculator, it's power supply will run the TI-59.
The major difference is the 59 has a built in card reader.

Too many - after starting on an HP-97 in 1979 I was part of the PC/Internet vanguard. I got hold of a time capsule HP-41CX 3 years ago and have started playing with both vintage and new programmable calculators. There is an iPhone app version called i41cx+ which is an excellent exact emulator of the HP-41CX plus printer, card reader and all known software modules and no I didn't write it or sell it. It just amazes me today (I'm 68 for a few more days) how much bloatware we put up with from software and operating systems - I've just loaded RISC OS onto a Raspberry Pi (some say it was the first GUI see BBC Micro, Acorn Atom PCs) and I think it's 12.8MB (yes MB) for an Operating System. I used SuperCalc in early 80s and it was something like 760KBs and Wordstar wasn't that big either - compared to the size of Excell and Word in their GBs today. However the first commercial PC the company I worked for in 1983 that we bought was a Sirius 1 and cost £2,400 (look up its spec, laughable today) and a year later we bought an external 10MB hard drive for £3,000!
Title: Re: New member introductions: Say hello here!
Post by: xlibman on October 04, 2017, 12:56:24 pm
Yeah, the TI-Nspire OS is an absolute disaster when it comes to bloatware. Back when OS 2.1 was the latest version, BrandonW once said that the entire OS could be remade to fit on a TI-84+SE.
