TI calculator tribute video (84+CE games)

It misses some games I wanted to include because the animated screenshots were in a weird APNG or whatever format that is not compatible with most free video editor, but it includes over 9 minutes of gameplay: games can be downloaded on https://tip...

WARNING: Do NOT upgrade your TI-84 Plus CE to OS 5.5 and higher. It blocks ASM!

I saw this coming years ago as critor would say, but it is now a reality: Texas Instruments has decided to block ASM on the TI-83 Premium CE and TI-84 Plus CE.Looks like from now on ASM will have to be added via hacking or whatever, like on the Nspire. Hopefully it's not as difficult as with Ndless and hopefully there is a way to get the old games to run on the new OS. But this is bad news for TI development, especially considering most games are coming out on the CE.Source: ...

Anybody considered making a Sega Master System/Game Gear emulator for the 84+CE?

I mean, think about it! Both the SMS and 84+ CE have similar CPUs, and if the 84 is powerful enough to emulate the GB, it really shouldn't be much of a problem. I honestly would LOVE to just be able to play STH and Alex Kidd on my calc, even if it's the inferior verisons.

Dead project history preservation (gameplay footage)

In the past, many programming projects died due to various factors and more often than not, none of their history was preserved (no source code, no demo, no screenshot left, etc). Because it's impossible to just ask people to take over someone else's project without requiring them to get used to a different style of programming (which often fails), I thought about a different idea that would not necessarily bring back those projects to life, but at least show their past existence.
