WARNING: DO NOT UPGRADE your TI-83 Premium CE or TI-84 Plus CE to OS 5.5.1 and higher. It removes all compatibility with most games and removes ASM/C programming! DOWNGRADING IS IMPOSSIBLE. BE WARNED! Likewise, do NOT update your TI-Nspire CX past OS 4.5.0, else using Ndless and ASM/C programs will be impossible.
If anyone use Arch Linux, I had a repo for a while with a few interesting software such as TI/Numworks/X16 emulators and tools. Today I'm also adding daily builds for some of the packages, so check it out
Currently, Phoenix is supported, but it's still in early stages so I bet many more games will work in the future.
Basically, this is a project by Tari from Cemetech, which allows you to play TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus games in your browser without requiring a ROM image or a copy of the TI-OS. This is very interesting, as this could allow the release of calculator games outside the TI community (itch.io, Steam?) without requiring the player to first dump a ROM from their calculator or illegally download one online.
For the past decade, the TI community as a whole for the most part have been careful not to let programs that tamper with the exam light, to ensure that TI doesn't remove ASM or to convince them that letting people run TI community ASM programs still protects the exam mode. Whenever a program dedicated for cheating was published on Omnimaga, Cemetech, CodeWalrus, TI-Planet or Ticalc.org, it was deleted and such program was limited to a release outside the calculator community that barely anyone could find. Programs that simply tampered with the exam light were met with the same fate.
With TI's recent removal of ASM/C from the TI-83 Premium CE in OS 5.5.1 and soon on the TI-84 Plus CE with OS 5.6, it was only a matter of time before such forum rule gets modified and that similar programs would finally make their way on TI calculator websites. Today, it finally happened, with the release of "LEDmorse" for the TI-82 Advanced and the TI-84 Plus-T.
Basically, this program lets you talk in morse code via the exam light. The program requires CalcUtil shell to run and since this calculator always lacked ASM/APP support, there is an elaborate tutorial explaining how to circumvent that limitation and install Flash APPS (such as the aforementioned shell) at https://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=22192&lang=en , in French.
Hello ! Here is the Omega 1.20 update at last! It is based on version 14.4.1 of Epsilon.
Hello! Yesterday we released Omega update 1.20.0 (new constants, new units, an open function for Python, community themes, new shortcuts, and much more to discover in the changelog above). We also have released a multi-script python project editor (beta) on our new website. Today we bring you Omega 1.20.1 with the following changes:
New: "os" module for Python (uname, listdir, remove, rename)
Fix: A crash when using the open function in "append" mode on a new file
Yes, Omega can be run on the 3DS. You only need either a 3DS with a custom firmware (with the homebrew channel installed) or an entry exploit (soundhax, ninjhax, etc... See here for more details).
My first goal with that thing was to make it exam-mode compliant (at least in France) and go pass the math test of the Baccalauréat (high school graduation in France) with it. Sadly, due to Covid-19, I couldn't. This is why it's not compliant (doesn't save exam mode state in the flash of the 3DS, doesn't build as a CIA replacing the home menu, etc.)
