Thank you for your interest in the Casio Picture Conversion Engine!

To download the Software, click here: https://edu.casio.com/download_service/download/private_us/form.html and enter in "pictureplot" as the password.

Your unique 25-digit access key to activate the Software is:
ZSTC-4W9R-874FYYX9-BCA3YN623. Please note, this access key can only be used once.

Remember, our intuitive Casio Picture Conversion Engine converts standard image file types to proprietary and protected calculator files - this method upholds the strictest standards of test security and eliminates the potential classroom distraction of permitting any image to be used. Once the file is converted, it may be used in class on PRIZM's Manager Software.

If you would like to download the 90-day trial version of our Manager Software, click here:http://www.casioeducation.com/prizm_convert/90DayTrial.

Additional Casio-created and teacher-generated files can be downloaded by visiting the new Casio Lesson Library. www.casioeducation.com/lesson_library.

In case you want to go the official way: http://www.casioeducation.com/prizm_convert

This was pretty unexpected... We knew that they were going to release this sooner or later, but I had no idea that it would be so locked-down. You have to fill in a form to get it, which gives the feeling that they only want teachers to have it, and the converter is useless for the fx-CG10 since the images aren't compatible at all. Was all of this done because of the standardized tests? I mean, TI's calculators are allowed to display any converted image file, but for some reason the fx-CG10 isn't allowed to...

The byte at 0x12 is 0x8E in the generated files. Change it to 0xFE and the calculator stops complaining about type errors. The images still don't appear, but I didn't recompute the security bytes elsewhere in the file, so images will probably load if you change those appropriately.

Also, Casio seriously needs to eliminate the redundant code from their image converter. There are several subroutines differing in only three or four instructions that could easily be optimized into one subroutine with several unique calls from elsewhere.

No, it's actually mostly useless for programming. The images that are used in programs don't have to be in a specific format, so this is only useful for displaying images in the OS - without programming. However, the usefulness is a bit limited, as I stated in my previous post. However, this program will most likely make it easier for us to figure out how the image file format works.

Ah, okay.  I see how that could be a damper on it, but at least it's better than nothing. ;)
Thanks for the rebuke. :)
