More PRIZM bugs?
« on: February 13, 2011, 05:05:39 pm »
It definitively seems that the Prizm has more bugs than we think. Some functions don't even work at all.

Here's the program I tried from the manual and a screenshot of what happens. SetG-Color doesn't appear to work at all. No matter if you use it with the right syntax, you will still get a Syntax error:


This was tested under fx-CG10/20 Manager PLUS and on a real calculator running the downloadable version of OS 1.02.0200.

Also there are still no news on the Locate glitch fix in the downloadable OS 1.02.

Someone will definitively have to do an OS patch or something when the calculator is jailbreaked.

What the hell is going on here. I swear that SetG-Color was working on my calc the other day.(No OS change since the other day). It is almost like some sort of Y2K bug. I have a gif posted but it is kind of hard to tell what is going on so I will explain it. Note: the program I tested using Plot/Line-Color which also used to work
1. you see a blank screen for a couple of seconds.
2. there is a flash from my school website. ([sarcasm]great now you all know where I go to school[/sarcasm])
3. You see the code for a prog that is supposed to draw text and lines in different colors.
4. I run the program and get an error.
5. For the rest of the video I angrly try to fix the program. :mad:

Notes: at the beginning of the program the first plot/line-color Blue does not generate an error, but the text from locate is still black.
          Trying to draw text in this program now just generates errors, but the text command still works in other progs.
          Sorry that the video is in black and white, I still need to figure out how to work calccapture.


List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

* Qwerty.55 sighs at Casio's error

I'll look through the OS, but I doubt I'll find anything.

I am trying to find the basic interpreter.
I think add-ins will play a big role in patching basic, and
give it some low level routines - like possibly peek, poke, Asm()

I think in calccapture there's an option where you can record in 256 colors.

lol. We definitely need ASM commands for BASIC. I may as well disassemble the entire OS while I'm at it.

Bsl this would definitively be a big plus. Doors CS7 and other apps have such BASIC extensions on the 83+ through parser hooks. I wouldn't be surprised if such parser hooks were possible on the Prizm. Some BASIC commands will need to be redone X.x

And yes, Asm() (both hex and prgm running support maybe), Sprite(), pxl-on/off/rectangle with no LCD update, an LCD update command, etc.

Z80man this sucks. Definitively Casio aren't much better than TI at fixing bugs, although so far I encountered no crash, unlike on the 83+ and Nspire.

Yeah. I even posted a screenshot showing how to change options, but I can't find it anymore.

@DJ_O

Try "SetG-Color Green 1".

Edit: No, it is a bug. I have tested it with the emulator.
Seems as if the color commands are always expecting an additional argument...

Perhaps the ColorNormal or ColorLighter arguments?

EDIT: Actually it would be "SetG-Color <color> ,#" where # is the graph whose color you want to change (1-20).  I just tested this and it works
                 It looks like the error is in the documentation of the command itself.  :o

Blue???  What exactly did you type in as the command? 
From what I know the statement SetG-Color Green ,1 should change the color of the first graph to green.
I tried variations on colors and graph numbers and they all worked as expected.

I typed the same things as in the manual screenshot above, but SetG-Color Green ,1 instead of SetG-Color Green.

EDIT: FOr some reasons it works now ???. I wonder if it just randomnly stops working...

I hope that it's not a random thing.  If it is then Casio needs to fix that along with the documentation for the command itself.

Now with the TI-Nspire CX they'll need to work harder or faster to fix the bugs, otherwise they'll have a bigger reputation of producing buggy products and people will go with TI calcs even more. X.x
