How did you get into calc programming/forums?
« on: March 21, 2015, 03:23:35 pm »
TheCoder1998 first showed me omnimaga.org about a year ago. Since i wasnt really interested in calc programming i didn't join (or maybe i did, just never posted anything). After a while i started making basic programs to make math easier (i was too lazy to solve quadratic equations myself lol). Then TheCoder showed me Axe and i started doing that. When i heard a new Calculator forum was opening i thought that was a great opportunity to get into forums, so i signed up like a month before the official release. I also started learing Z80 ASM about half a year ago.

What about you?

after looking up games for my nspire, and saw that I could play GBA games on it, but needed ndless to do so, so I looked up ndless and found omnimaga, that's how I got into it
I have a rhythm game problem.

I was looking for games for my CSE and then I found out that they are programmable relatively easily do i started programming in BASIC, and I had some questions, so I registered at Cemetch, the only forums site I knew about at that time.

I started experimenting with calculators in 8th grade and I found this video which got me into basic programming.

(or maybe
(click to show/hide)
).

I then did lots of solvers in math. Then I spent like a week looking through TI-Basic Dev and I learned the graph screen. I made a collection of solvers with a nice menu. My first game that I made was a star dodge game made in basic. Now I'm on to axe parser and things are going pretty good (I'm working on my first big(ish) game).

It's a common first axe project (hint. hint.). I think that you saw the options menu so you might be able to guess by the ship. The project isn't actually that big but I am writing it on my friends calc so its slow going.

My first experience with calcs was in 7th grade where my teacher had Ti-83s. I later noticed the PRGM button and made my first prgm  "1+1" it of course outputted 2. After that I looked for a calc of my own, it just so happened that my sister had one from high school so she gave it to me. Then I looked up how to program a graphing calc. I came up with this... #Invalid YouTube Link# After watching that I started programming a little on my own

That was one year ago and to this day I have to make sure I have pants with big pockets because I have my calc in there :P (That is true too...)

@alexgt your Youtube link is broken. :P

In my case I saw a friend play Snake and ZTetris on his 83+ and then got interested into making games for that calc after I learned it was programmable. I was 14 back then. I found about the TI community when I first searched for calc games on Google.

I joined my school TSA (Technology Student Association) last year, got a 83+ for the calculator robots competition, and taught a few friends how to code. We were the only people doing the robots out of the entire section :P

I don't know how I found the community :P

You stalked me on Youtube IIRC. :trollface:

Also that reminds me, the first forum I joined was MaxCoderz. :P

EDIT:

Since Youtube didn't exist back when I started calculator programming and that good tutorials were either sparse or hard to find, I only learned from the TI-83+ guidebook that came with my calc (yes, back in the days, your calc came with a 900 pages brick that has screenshots of TI-83 Plus OS 1.00!)

My first calc was a TI80 I got when I was 10 (it was my uncle's high school calc which he gave to me). It's been 8 years since I started doing that now. :P

Somewhat :P

Oh wow you got to know the TI-80? I am kinda surprised considering it was discontinued in January 2002 (although local stores here sold it until about 2004 or so). That calc was a piece of crap in terms of durability and speed. Even the TI-81 was faster. >.<

I myself have one, but the LCD broke a few years after I got it.
