The micro USB to micro USB question
« on: October 01, 2016, 02:54:33 pm »
I have a USB to USB cable from my calculator, which is a TI-84 plus CE,Since they can export files, maybe they can export frames of a game for multiplayer game! That would be cool. Let me know about this.

It would be much more efficient to instead share key presses or something similar, and let each calc draw the screen separately.

What's my calc's name? Convert $37 to decimal. Look up that element in the periodic table. Then take the abbreviation of that element and you have it!
Look! A slime!    <(^.^)>

Indeed, E37 is right there. Sending a screenshot is quite slow and your framerate would be really bad. Also you would need to use the backbuffer of the sender calc as a framebuffer to generate the frame to be sent. Grayscale would be impossible anyways.

True. That said, the Casio fx-9860g can achieve it fine, but it requires modifying the game code with some add-on to add screenshotting capabilities in it.
