Welcome to CodeWalrus: A software development community with a focus on retro-gaming, music and pixel art on various mobile platforms, including graphing calculators, as well as game consoles and PC.
Since October 2014, our active members and staff have released several new games for the Sega Dreamcast, Panasonic 3DO, Atari 2600, TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus CE, TI-Nspire CX, HP Prime, Casio fx-9860G, Android phones and computers. This includes First Fantasy: Mana Force, Sorcery of Uvutu, Reuben Quest: Lost Between Times, Oiram CE (a Super Mario clone), SQRXZ CE, KillMinds, VVSSV, Line++, Lazer 2, GalagACE and Wal-Rush! Various existing games, such as This is the Only Level, Androides, Billybox, Mandragore, Bejeweled, Flappy Bird, Pac-Man and Pac-Attack, were also ported to TI calculators by our users and various retro gaming console emulators (SNES, Turbografx-16, Sega Genesis, Master System, etc) were released for the TI-Nspire CX.
Aside from game development, our participating forum users have released notable tools such as ICE Compiler, Houstontracker 2, CEmu, the C SDK and Libraries for the CE. We also have our share of musicians and pixel artists as well, along with a massive database of MTV Music Generator series songs from the remains of TIMGUL.
A lot of new projects are also active in the development section, ranging from new games to programming utilities and 3D engines, so expect new releases at any moment. Make sure to visit the authors' topics to voice your suggestions and encouragements!
We intend to provide a friendly place to discuss your favorite topics, to hang out and to showcase your projects and releases, so hopefully you feel at home here. Registration is free and only takes a few seconds!

Bad news for students who are planning to purchase a brand new TI-84 Plus CE for this upcoming school semester: If you planned to play Oiram CE
, Calcuzap, Wal-Rush! CE or First Fantasy
on your calculator, then you might be out of luck.
Last Spring, Texas Instruments introduced the 13th hardware revision for the TI-84 Plus CE model, ending with the letter I. Unfortunately this change breaks compatibility with
a few ASM and C program and games released by the TI community over the last two years, causing the keypad to no longer respond during execution, forcing you to hit the reset button on the back. And what makes this worse is that there is no way to tell if the calculator you will buy (new or used) is gonna be hardware I or later or if it's gonna be an older one that can run those games.
For now, there is no estimate about when (or if) a C SDK libraries update that circumvents this issue is gonna be released, if it's even possible at all, because none of the TI community developers own such recent TI-84 Plus CE version. The TI-83 Premium CE is also affected.
In April 2007, a similar situation affected the TI-84 Plus and TI-84 Plus Silver Edition with missing RAM pages, while in 2016 it was the TI-Nspire CX's turn with a new LCD hardware. And TI isn't alone, as the fx-CG9860G series changed processor completely in 2011.

Update: Turns out it breaks compatibility with only one way out of many to fetch keyboard inputs, namely interrupts. Fortunately, the only known program that uses them is Oiram CE and some toolchain demos, but still, it is a problem if you're planning to use them in your programs. Mostly every program should work fine on hardware revision I, provided they don't use interrupts. Please check with your program's author if it's affected.

We are aware that a number of people (if not everyone) had issues logging in directly from the front page portal. A session timeout error will happen. I thought this was only an issue on ganjahusky's laptop for the last two months or so, until a few minutes ago when @PT_
reported the same problem and the fact I had it happen when I last tried using the portal to login from my own PC.
It's unclear when the issue started, but it's most likely related to the SMF 2.0.13->2.0.14 upgrade a while ago or other things.
For the time being, we recommend everyone to login by using the "login" link in the site navigation bar, which additionally gives you the option to login by using various social networks if you want to (note that social login will log you out after every session, though).
Also note that we are not planning to continue using Simplemachines software if we remain open, due to them using Sears Canada
as a blueprint to grow their userbase and the various issues we've been running into in the last few months. CW also currently doesn't have any active staff. As a result, until an upgrade (if any) is decided, it might take a while before the front page login gets fixed (or terminated).

First of all, we're sorry for all the inconvenience during another small downtime. Hope we didn't scared you away.
Now, we're sad to announce @aeTIos
have resigned from their staff positions, and @xlibman
, while still formally part of the staff with decisional rights, have been stripped from any administrative powers he had.
On that, I'm going on semi-hiatus while real life happens, as the only one with full admin rights so far, I'll be there when I'll be able to be online and I'll be back in a few weeks. Rest assured the site won't be going anywhere until then. Meanwhile, be sure to post your suggestions and constructive opinions on this thread
and we'll get to it after then.
See ya soon!

UPDATE: Codewalrus will remain open for the time being. The remaining staff will decide what happens to the site at a later date, depending of if people are interested in continuing posting on a site that will soon average at 50 posts a month.
However, see the last post in this thread. https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=2152.msg58662#msg58662

Well, if you live in the United States like some of our users do (plus we're a .us), you'd hate that while giants like Google and Netflix just loads snappily, right? Or even, you'd have to pay extra to get to CodeWalrus and most of your other favourite sites? Well, the FCC, Comcast, and Verizon are trying to make it happen, and everyone else thinks it's completely stupid.
July 12 is another of these days where the entire Internet community are standing out for Net Neutrality, and we're happy to join their forces, however small we are, but eh, it's the thought that counts, we'd definitely hate if some weird giant ISP would prevent anyone to access our humble site. After all, everyone should have the right to access whatever information from our site equally from the other sites.
Join the fight! https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12/
