You don't need a r, the contrast is a 1-byte value. I think it's not appearing to work correctly because the value stored at 0x8447 isn't the value actually sent to the LCD driver. When adjusting the contrast, the value the OS sends to the LCD driver is the byte stored at this address plus 24. So to set a contrast one higher than the current OS contrast, you would do:

Shade({ᴇ8447}+24+1)

Ah, thanks. I was a bit confused. :)

I have two questions:
How do you use Y1?
Is Y1 a static pointer?
ld a, 0
ld a, a

It's actually a combination of a variable (like A-Z and theta and the r1-r6 arguments) and a page number, which is used to figure out which page of flash memory (the "archive") the data is on. It's used specifically to point to variables that are archived, so the only way you "store" to it is through the GetCalc("VARNAME")→Y1 command. Y1 can then be used in a limited set of commands, such as Copy() and {}.

I think the command is actually GetCalc("VARNAME",Y1)

Calc is right. Then you use {Y1+X} to get the byte.

How do you run axe programs in an 84+?

What do you mean? If you have the executable (already compiled program), it's just an assembly program like any other. Run it from DoorsCS or MirageOS, or if you know it was compiled for no shell, run it from the homescreen with Asm(prgmNAME).

Oh, you don't need an extra shell on your calc?

If the program was compiled for that extra shell, then yeah. It's exactly the same as any other ASM program.

Using [2ND][/] for the e...
I have a level pointer of {P}, like getcalc(Str1)→P
Would 1e{P} get the first byte of the number P points to, or would it be the last byte?  Also is it 1e{P} or 1eP ?

EDIT: answered via IRC.  It would be {P}e1 .

How optimized are the ++ and -- commands?  Are they slower or faster than the normal A+1→A ?

They're the same for variables, but usually smaller/faster for memory locations.
