Existing Latenite isn't great (Win32 hacks galore and some serious design flaws, being my first C# app). Brass is also a bit of a mess. Hence these more thorough redesigns, which are maybe a little too thorough. :)

This might be a dumb question to ask, and there might be a good reason why this hasn't been implemented yet, but could you allow Latenite to be used to create Flash Applications? To my knowledge, this isn't possible at the moment.

Latenite doesn't allow the user to create Flash Applications, right? Meaning that I would have to use another editing program to edit the code and then use Brass to assemble it. I'm asking if it would be possible to make it so that Latenite could be used to make Flash Applications.

For some reason I read that as Flash animations. Now it begins to make some sort of sense.

You can make Flash apps quite easily with Brass, but you'd need to set up some sort of template for Latenite.

See here.

one tip, add

Code: Select all

.fill 500 - ($ - main),$FF
just after your code. It doesn't matter for PTI, but for some reason (blame TI) you can't succesfully send too-small apps to TI (83p?/)84p's.

That's weird... So did I... probably because of your response?

On the same topic, how do you write the debug script for the flash Apps? Here's what I got:

Code: Select all

; TI-83 Plus Application script
reset-calc
run 6000000
key-press on 6000000
send-file %DEBUG_BINARY%
key-press clear
key-press apps
key-press down
key-press enter
When I try running this, It pops up with an error saying "Unknown File type". It also says that it is trying to sent the .8xp file instead of the .8xk.
What is the right send-file argument I need to send the .8xk file?

???
What do you mean by this?
I can get it to compile correctly, but not debug without manually sending the Application.

It's not PTI, but the dubug script. I know because I can send Apps manually or tell the script to send a specific app, but not one with any name (given that it can be sent manually).

I've found a strange solution to this problem, but I wouldn't recomend it. What it does is:
(compile script)
1. Deletes old build to prevent strange error later
2. Default build, link, and signing for app
3. Deletes *.8xp file that is strangely generated allong with *.8xk file
4. Renames the app file (*.8xk) to *.8xp.8xk

(debug script)
1. Resets debugger Completely
2. Sends *.8xp.8xk file
3. Runs it

Code: Select all

;Modified compile script
REM TI Calculator Build Script - Ben Ryves 2005-2006

REM deleting old build
CD "%PROJECT_DIR%/Bin/"
DEL *.8xk

REM Jump to source directory
CD "%SOURCE_DIR%"

REM Add compiler directory to PATH
SET PATH=%PATH%;"%COMPILE_DIR%"

REM Set up debugger information
SET DEBUG_DEBUGGER="%DEBUG_DIR%/PindurTI/PindurTI Debugger.exe"
SET DEBUG_DEBUGGER_ARGS="%DEBUG_DIR%/PindurTI/ROMs/%PLATFORM%.rom" -d "%DEBUG_LOG%" -s "%PROJECT_DIR%/Build/%BUILD_FILE_NOEXT%.debug" -l

REM Run the assembler
BRASS "%SOURCE_FILE%" "%PROJECT_DIR%/Bin/%PROJECT_NAME% - %BUILD_FILE_NOEXT%.%EXTENSION%" -x -d -l "%PROJECT_DIR%/Bin/%PROJECT_NAME%.htm"
CD "%PROJECT_DIR%/Bin/"
DEL *.inc
DEL *.8xp
rename *.8xk *.8xp.8xk
Here's the Debug script:

Code: Select all

; TI-83 Plus application script
reset-calc
run 6000000
key-press on 6000000
key-press clear
key-press 2nd
key-press +
key-press 7
key-press left
key-press enter
key-press 2
send-file %DEBUG_BINARY%.8xk
key-press clear
key-press apps
key-press down
key-press enter
