NESpire general discussion thread

You could use the keypresses and interface from calc84maniac's gbc4nspire 0.8, (at least HE could), just get an open source decoder... Thing for the roms! The NES has a LOWER resolution than the nSpire by default!

Plus I want to play some old favorites.  :-\

Re: Would an NES emulator be possible on nSpire?

Yes. I think the nes's cpu ran at like 3 mhz or something. Certainly doable.
It would be also possible for the SNES, though I don't know about playing starfox.

That would be so epic, it's not even funny.  If I had a Nspire, I would already be working on this, but I don't, so I think someone else should :)

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Loved this place, still the best producers of power metal, and sparked my dreams of coding.

The NES could be done for sure.  Calc84maniac and ThePenguin have some some sweet SNES stuff for the 84+, so I'm pretty sure a SNES system would be feasible.  N64 is not very likely, sadly
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

N64 i think is dreaming a bit too big im afraid.  What with the screen size, lack of color, and crappy lcd, its just not a good idea :( Not even to go into speed concerns

Who talked about emulating the N64? I'm missing something because I don't see that, just NES and SNES.




For the 51st time, that is not my card! (Magic Joke)

I am fairly sure NES, Sega Master System, Game Gear and some limited SNES emulation could be done. Calc84 would need to learn the respective processor/hardware architectures though, to achieve this. Of course someone else could write the emu, though :P (Calc84 already got a lot of projects)

There is? I only see one page in this topic ???

In case you are wondering where I went, I am still regularly active in the TI community and am even making new TI-84 Plus CE games. However, I left Omnimaga back in March 2015 for various reasons explained here and there. I might come back one day, depending of certain circumstances, but my new TI community home (despite me being Omnimaga founder in 2001) is now CodeWalrus ( https://codewalr.us ). Sorry for the inconveniences.
