Calcs can make art on their own...
« on: January 14, 2017, 07:55:11 am »
Being a tech nerd myself, I ALWAYS fail at making decent art (school art class absolutely sucks :( ).
Of course, I like looking at beautiful art, but I also hate most art. So I decided to see if I can get my calc to make some decent art. I succeeded in doing this by making a program (TI-BASIC mandatory for this) that generates random explosion-like line-based images. It is fun to watch how they get made up, line by line. Of course, the 15MHz z80  extends the drawing time way to much. I haven't gotten around to putting it on ticalc.org, but I may do so on the next school break or some other time. So,yes, this prooves that a primitive device like my TI84+SE can make art. XD XD XD
Feel free to download any of my programs:

I don't have exactly enough time to get that and post it here. I may post the screenshot and/or program at some other time.  Please understand that I have huge time limits and am very busy.

EDIT: Should be soon on ticalc.org. I think I named it ''Calculator Art Package 2017'' (it contains 2 programs). If you have access to an overclocked calc running at 20MHz or more, use that. :-)

If you are looking for some cool art programs try this one.
It makes a different spiral if you are in degrees or radians. (and it is under 80 bytes)
Good things come in bags marked "SWAG"

Thanks alot! Will definitely look into customizing this (if I can understand the code...). ;D ;D To bad i don't have a color calc, because then the artwork would be better. :-[

Update:
My two-program package is on ticalc.org :-)

Also works on a CSE (tested in wabbitemu). Screen resolution doesn't affect it.  Just make sure you have default window settings. Should also run on the CE. Enjoy!
