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, TI-89, TI-92, TI Voyage 200, HP Prime, Casio fx-9860G, Android phones and computers. This includes First Fantasy: Mana Force, Sorcery of Uvutu, Reuben Quest: Lost Between Times, Oiram CE (a Super Mario clone), SQRXZ CE, KillMinds, VVSSV, Line++, Lazer 2, GalagACE and Wal-Rush! Various existing games, such as This is the Only Level, Androides, Billybox, Mandragore, Bejeweled, Flappy Bird, Pac-Man and Pac-Attack, were also ported to TI calculators by our users and various retro gaming console emulators (SNES, Turbografx-16, Sega Genesis, Master System, etc) were released for the TI-Nspire CX.

Aside from game development, our participating forum users have released notable tools such as ICE Compiler, Houstontracker 2, CEmu, the C SDK and Libraries for the CE. We also have our share of musicians and pixel artists as well, along with a massive database of MTV Music Generator series songs from the remains of TIMGUL. A lot of new projects are also active in the development section, ranging from new games to programming utilities and 3D engines, so expect new releases at any moment. 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!

Notable Game and Software Releases
If, for whatever reasons, you are stuck on TI-Nspire OS 3.9.0 or 3.9.1 (such as school forcing you to upgrade or your calculator revision being Hardware S or higher, which didn't work with OSes older than 3.9.1), but still want to use Ndless, then good news: It's out! :D

For those who are unfamiliar with the TI-Nspire, Ndless is a tool that allows the calculator to run C, Python, Javascript and ARM assembly language softwares created by members of the TI community. Normally, the calculator comes built-in with support for both Lua and a limited form of TI-BASIC. ASM and C programs get more control on the calculator, allowing them to run much faster, so you can play games such as DOOM, Quake, Crafti (3D Minecraft clone) and run Nintendo games via various console emulators. In addition to that, you can watch videos and get access to more powerful educational tools such as Khicas and nPDF!

With Texas Instruments devoting between 0.001 and 100% of their profits into locking down their newest TI-Nspire OSes to prevent third-party native programs from running, it usually took over 6 months after a new OS release before new exploits can be both discovered and used to use Ndless on them. Version 3.9 comes out earlier than expected and runs on OS 3.9.0 and 3.9.1. After five years, despite TI's actions, the Ndless team has never gave up, never let anyone down nor deserted us, even if they had every reason possible to do so.

If you still use OS 3.1, then you will have to use Ndless 3.1 instead, though, and OS 3.6 will still require Ndless 3.6.

It is also discouraged to use Ndless 3.9 on TI-Nspire Clickpad models, because they do not have enough RAM to run both OS 3.9 and most Ndless programs simultaneously (only 2-3 MB of RAM left). Also, Ndless 3.9 will not work on Touchpad (grayscale) models.

In addition to that, users of Nspire CX models that have hardware revision J or higher, as well as those who don't use Nlaunchy, should probably stick to Ndless 3.6. Without nLaunchy nor an OS that can run it, Ndless 3.9, which uses the same exploit as DowngradeFix 3.9, requires computer access in order to be re-installed following a calculator crash or reboot. You can still use Ndless 3.9.1 regardless, but under such conditions it won't be ideal.

Notable Game and Software Releases
TI has just released TI-Connect CE 5.0 on their official website. It is a standalone version of TI-Connect that supports the USB version of the TI-83 Plus.Fr, the TI-83 Premium CE and the entire TI-84 Plus family. It sports a brand new interface, which lets you edit calculator program code most notably, and offers considerable improvements on file transfer speed. While it used to take 30 seconds in the original TI-Connect to initiate a transfer at all, everything such as drag-n-dropping a file in a Windows folder is now instant.

Unfortunately, this version of TI-Connect drops support for serial linking and consequently, support for the TI-82, TI-83, TI-83 Plus, the original TI-83 Plus.Fr, the TI-83 Plus Silver Edition, TI-85 and TI-86 was dropped. Also, all 68K models including the TI-89 Titanium are no longer supported. On the other hand, TI-Connect CE acts as a separate entity from TI-Connect 4.0, so installation is done in a separate folder, meaning it will still let you use both.

In a previous announcement, we started doing staff updates and made the new Elite Coder group, designed as a badge for notable programmers that offers some extra forum privileges, an official thing. The announcement stated that the next one would be on February 14th.

Today we are pleased to announce the addition of @Hayleia and @matrefeytontias to the Elite Coder member group! They now have extra privileges regarding what sub-forums they can have in the Featured Projects section, they have access to the Safe-Haven board by default and they are now listed on CodeWalrus front page and About section, along with the staff and the other Elite Coders.

Another member is still pending approval for addition to the Elite Coders group as hasn't replied to his last PM yet to confirm he is still interested. Should he still show interest towards such position (and the site), there might be another Elite Coder addition very soon. In the future, the Elite Coders group will be opened to good programmer who wants to join and is interested in helping CodeWalrus grows, although places might still be limited.

Hayleia is currently working on Super Smash Bros Open, a TI-84 Plus game clone which made the headlines on several big gaming websites, while Matrefeytontias is working on a Super Hexagon clone called Axagon, written in Axe language.

Also, the Featured projects section was finally updated after some delays. Subforums for smaller projects were added for two Elite Coder and a Mana Force CSE sub-forum was added as well.

With our growing non-English native userbase, we have decided to add multiple languages to the forum software: Dutch, French and Japanese. Although support for those languages is partial (custom navigation and menu options are still in English and Japanese translation is incomplete), hopefully this should make it easier for our visitors or members who have troubles using the website in English.

You can change your language settings at the top of every page to the right of CodeWalrus logo, via a drop-down, or via your account settings.

Also effective immediately: Due to some requests it is now possible to start discussions in French in the off-topic section, which is possible with 4 of the 5 CodeWalrus staff speaking it as native language, but you must prefix your topic title with [FR] to distinguish it from other English topics.

French follows:
Suite à quelques demandes, il est désormais possible de lancer des discussions en Français sur le forum de CodeWalrus dans la section off-topic, chose étant rendue possible du au fait que c'est la langue maternelle de 4 des 5 membres de l'équipe du site. Par contre, pour ce faire, il faut que vous ajoutez un préfixe [FR] au début du titre de votre topic pour le distinguer des sujets en anglais.

Hey everybody, report from your staff here!

It's been a few weeks since we launched, and I hope everyone has been enjoying it so far here. We're always looking for points to improve so if you have any ideas, post them. You might just have this epic idea that we never thought of!

In the few weeks since we launched, we've already gone through a few changes:
-pimathbrainiac has resigned from his staff position, because he's very busy with regular life and he told us he can't have the additional weight of running a site. He said he'll still be doing the Project Periodical. Good luck with everything pimath!

-To fill up the free spot caused by pimath's resigning, Eiyeron has been promoted to the moderator position. This means he can ban people and generally be annoying help running the site, so if streetwalrus is being annoying again a spambot attack happens, you can poke him and he'll probably fix it (if he doesn't, poke me and I'll stab him)

-Finally on staffing, I (aeTIos) have been promoted to admin again (I stepped down before opening due to not really knowing anything about server/forum management), because I'll be managing forum backups.

Next on the list is the Elite Coder badge. This badge is awarded if you have a promising project and can show substantial progress. If you become Elite Coder, you get a subforum in the Featured Projects board, plus eternal fame! (your mileage may vary).

While writing this, I suddenly realize that giving an "elite coder" badge for a hardware project is weird. Maybe we need an "elite electronics engineer" badge of sorts. Hmm. Gotta discuss this with staff ^_^
Recently, Eiyeron has been awarded the Elite Coder badge. His subforum hasn't been realized yet, but we'll try to get it running by the end of the week :D

Now, some of you also have promising projects. If you think you and  your project are awesome enough to get a subforum and eternal fame (ymmv), you can apply in the comments section below with:

1) the project you want to apply,
2) a short explanation of recent progress,
3) a short summary of what your goals are with this project.

Don't hesitate to apply, no application is wrong. If you feel like applying in public is bragging, you can also PM me your application.

The staff's decision will be published in thenext Staff Announcement on Saturday, the 14th of February. If by then your project doesn't have enough progress to be considered major, fear not: we will be running hiring rounds very frequently.

All in all, we're really happy to see so many people posting and generally be useless hang around. Just, we'd love to see a bit less activity in off-topic and more in on-topic ;) Get your project out there, get famous (again, ymmv). Try to make some friends join the party! Remember that even though the main area of activity is currently calculator programming, we're not solely focused on that. Actually, we would like to see some PC/android/somethingelse projects started up, so if you know anyone who has such projects, try to get them to register and help the walrus fly  ^___^

With love~,
Your Staff.
