Notable Game and Software Releases
If you are on CodeWalrus Discord server, the #gaming channel now has bots that can show player statistics for the following games:

-Fortnite (via "Fortnite Stats" bot. Type "!ftn help" without quotes in #gaming to see how to use the bot)
-Overwatch (via "OverwatchBot". Type "|owhelp (8)" for help)
-Paladins (via "PaladinsGeek". Type "p!help" for help)

This can be a good way to see the statistics of a player in particular or yours without leaving Discord. More games might be added in the future if you know the bot website links for said games.

Note however that the bot will not work from #cw-craft on EFnet (which is linked to #gaming on Discord) and that you can already see the bot help earlier in the chat there, so using the help commands might not be necessary. Those bots are the property of their respective owners.

Hey guys, hope you guys have a nice Easter day. I am going to take the occasion to announce a few important stuff here.

As you might know, the Trump administration is quite unforgiving on things like freedom of speech, net neutrality and LGBTQ+ issues, among others. The server is hosted in New York on a .us domain, so given the community's wishes and to continue the most quality, uncensored content, it became unsustainable to keep the server there. As the administration is Canadian, we are therefore moving all our assets to Canada, including a .ca domain, over the next few days for fear the Americans would cut us down and censor us. We have no idea if American users will be affected, but it will be for the better. You might also want to download a copy of Tor right now if the situation gets worse.

Oh, also don't forget DJ Omnimaga (aka @xlibman)'s new album, Hardcore Spectrum Disorder, is coming out tomorrow, April 2nd, as a physical limited edition for only C$95!

Additionally, I'd also like to thank Omnimaga (the website, unrelated with our own DJ Omnimaga) for paying the server bills, thanks to the huge Omnimaga logo you see below our own. Can't go anywhere without you guys. You literally own CodeWalrus now. So, as part of the move, we will also welcome Eeems and Geekboy of Omnimaga into our own staff team and our own Walrii mascot will be joined by a lobster.

Again, happy Easter! We hope you'll like the changes and we'll keep you updated!

UPDATE: Juju forgot to mention that this will now be the official logo (90's throwback) and intro for future CodeWalrus-related videos and the PhpBB 3.2x CW logo:



UPDATE (April 2): It was a bit exagerated, but yeah, CW isn't going anywhere, no logo or staff change either, happy April's Fools Day! :) We think Trump is still scary, though... Who knows if it's going to be true one day? Anyway, Hardcore Spectrum Disorder is out, but for only $4, you can go buy it right here at the bottom! And it's for the World Autism Awareness Day! Also shoutouts to Omnimaga, thanks for the ads, for real.

Calculators in General
Note: most of this post was copied over from Cemetech, it was originally written by PT_ here.

About 4 days ago, TI released a new OS for both the TI-83 Premium CE and TI-84 Plus CE. But as people at TI-Planet discovered pretty soon, it has 2 main disadvantages:
  • Going into exam mode can now take up 1.5 - 2 minutes, due to the OS checking and validating all the installed apps. Previously this took about 2 seconds.
  • The [mono]Asm84CEPrgm[/mono] is now permanently disabled, which means you can't write assembmly programs on-calc anymore. Luckily asm programs in general aren't blocked. AFAIK, this isn't a mistake:
    Quote from: Adriweb
    No it's not a mistake, they confirmed it after all with TI-Dallas. And they say it's only half disabled because they didn't want to block/remove it entirely either, so to use it they say to write and transfer things from TI-Connect CE. But that's also why I (or anybody else, I guess) say it's completely absurd/illogical.
From the community-experience, TI barely listens to our complains, so don't get your hopes up that this will be 'fixed' soon. Personally I've no idea what the future will bring us, but if you have boot code >= 5.1.5 (check with [MODE] [ALPHA] ), don't upgrade your OS. If your boot code is from before 5.1.5, you can downgrade the OS to even OS 5.0.0.

Thanks to TheMachine02 you can now downgrade from this OS!
The first tool to be able to downgrade is now out https://tiplanet.org/forum/archives_voir.php?id=1398736  :P

I have been very busy lately, developing a complete replacement main board that will fit into the empty shell of a TI-84+. This will enable you to build your completely own, Linux powered, TI-84+
You almost can't differenciate the original from a modded one.

It features an ATmega328P-AU Arduino Uno compatible keyboard processor and power management controller and real time clock (to keep the time running, while the Pi is turned off).
This will be a two board solution. There will be an upper and a lower board.
On the upper board, there is space for fitting a Raspberry Pi Zero (W) and a 128x64 monochrome/grayscale LCD that I would provide. The bottom half of the board (including keypad matrix, RTC, Uno and the Adafruit PowerBoost500 for LiPo operation) will be attachable to the upper board through a few solder links. Therefore you can decide whether you want to provide your own single board computer or if you want to go for a Pi Zero and my preferred, matching LCD.
The headphone/Link jack will either expose the Pi Zero's analog video signal plus one GPIO pin or the  I2C bus, depending on solder jumper configuration. The Uno is connected to the Pi via SPI and UART. You should be able to reflash the Uno from the Pi, if you disable the Linux console on the serial port.
Otherwise, the serial console will be displayed on boot in a serial terminal mode of the Uno.
The Uno is also connected to the 128x64 screen and will go into high impendance mode to let the Pi access the screen, once the Pi is booted and ready.

I guess I can already warrant a sneak peak at the keypad matrix ;)


I hope there is demand, and if there is I may offer a kit or the bare PCBs.
If someone does not like to solder SMD, I could also offer individual assembly of the boards.
There is also need for a good name. Currently I have settled for "Pi84--", but feel free to post any suggestions if don't like the name.

From a price perspective, the bottom board with all components (except for the Adafruit PowerBoost 500) may end up costing around 12€. The power boost is available for about 15€ and a matching battery will cost under 10€.
The top board may probably cost around 18€ (not including the Pi Zero (W), but including the screen).

Dead TI-84+'es are often available at your school/uni for free or just a tiny fee, if there is a renting program available. On eBay, used TI-84+'s with a broken screen can be bought for as little as 10€.

So, in total, you will probably be paying about 65€ for your own, Linux enabled, fully hackable, state of the art, calculator.

And of course could you run one of the TI-84+ emulators on there if you wanted to ;)


Note, that this is the actual, project releated topic, while my original post was posted in another topic here.

Well, you might have noticed the pink notice at the top of the page.

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

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

Yeah. Let's face it, posting is quite low these days and none of the admins have motivation nor time to even write this post to manage and improve this site other than the minimal moderation and maintainance, so yeah, we'll still give it minimal maintainance for the time being until things get better or it just becomes a ghost town. (Which we hope not.)

Don't panic, though. It's still going to be the fun place to hang around and share your projects as long as there's any people here, on the forums or on IRC/Discord. It's just that, if you have a question, don't expect an answer right now, if you don't get it you might as well try again on TI-Planet. (Yes, they speak English, don't worry.)

Of course, that doesn't mean we won't throw some events once in a while, we might do that actually, so stay tuned for further announcements! Until then, I dunno, invite your friends, and feel free to give us some suggestions, we might actually consider them :)
