Re: Hi

A few people still check in here from time to time but I'd say Cemetech seems to be about the most active calculator-adjacent website these days. That does sound fun and a useful and interesting project you've been spending time on. :) I find having programming for work rather saps my energy for it ...

Re: [Staff][Demo] Metroid Infinity

Nice to see those sprites back in action again, and GB Studio looks like a neat way to put a game together too (though I do wonder whether such fast action would be visible on an original "pea soup" Game Boy!) Very cool work. :)

Re: [Staff] TIWiFiModem: Take your TI-83 Plus online

Cheers, tr1p1ea! It's mostly putting together a few bits and pieces other people had already written, but I'd always wanted to play with getting a calculator online. :)

Re: Brass - 1.0.5.3 update [06/02/2014]

Brass is now open source and hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/benryves/Brass I've been loath to touch the code since switching development efforts over to Brass 3 as it was not very well written in the first place (it was my first project in C#) and I never used source control so didn't want to ...

[Staff] TIWiFiModem: Take your TI-83 Plus online

Ever since I first saw Telnet83+ I was intrigued with the idea of taking a calculator online, but never had the equipment (dial-up modem, phone line and "graylink" serial cable) to make it all work. Fortunately you can now get inexpensive WiFi-enabled microcontroller modules and there are ...

Re: Where did everyone go?

Hi Patori, good to see you're still around and I hope you're well! I work as a web developer but still dabble with programming older Z80 systems and hacking around with electronics for fun when I have the opportunity. Sadly I haven't done much on the calculator front for a long time after my TI-83 P...

Re: Darkblasters: A new graphical 84+/SE RPG written in TI-BASIC

That looks great! Very nice work and it's always impressive to see the creative ways you're able to make the most of the calculator's capabilities. :)

Source code release and "Demo 8".

I've dug around the dustier corners of my hard disk drive and uploaded the source code for this project to https://github.com/benryves/Nostromo After transferring to GitHub I cloned the project locally and tried building it; I was able to compile "Demo 8" which is a minor bugfix from the g...

Re: COVID-19 - Check-in

Long time no see, currahee, hope you've been well! My girlfriend's an optometrist and so also had her first jab last week (Pfizer) but only had a sore arm for a day or so afterwards. It's the people I know who've had the AstraZeneca one that seem to be more prone to feeling unwell afterwards, but fo...

Re: TI-84+CE Mode 7 Engine development

That's looking great, tr1p1ea, can't wait to see how it turns out! :) Would it be revealing your secrets too much to describe the algorithm you're using? I'm interested in how the resolution drops as you get further down the screen - is that a limitation of the algorithm or a concession to performan...

Re: The void of space ...

Nice to see that you've compiled what you had into an interesting repository, Timendus. :) Thank you for sharing that! I do like BBC BASIC (generally, not so much my calculator version) but in retrospect it was a poor fit for the TI calculator. It feels too much like a "computer" BASIC and...

Re: Hi all

Ben, I'm unconvinced by your excuse as calculators are cheap on ebay! :-) (Still amazed that the ancient ti-83, which costs almost nothing to produce still goes for $100+... Talk about a cash cow for TI!) Oh, all right then, you convinced me. :) I hope you got your commission from the seller! 20200...
