Ti-84 emulator for ipod
« on: May 20, 2012, 03:59:35 pm »
 i wanna develop an app for ipod: a ti84 emulator and maybe an app which allows you to make asm programs, compile them, and put them on your computer

But i don't know anything about c and objecive c (language to make an ipod app) so maybe there's someone who can help me? I could give you some money if you want it, but one of the advantages would be that it would only be for jailbroken devices due to the apple rules for their apple shop

If you develop an iPod 84+ emulator, you'll be limited to jailbroken device audience. As Goplat says on IRC, Apple disallows emulators in the appstore. However it would still be nice since I'm pretty sure there are a lot of people who jailbreaked their iDevice already.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I think you have a good start with Wabbitemu's code. But still, It might be rather hard to do it if you've never done any C before. I recommend you doing tutorials, dunno where they might be though.

Ok, so everybody who wants the app to be created or who wants to help creating it, please say it here

EDIT1: i think there just aren't many people here who have an ipod or ipad or iphone, so don't think many people are interested

Actually, there are quite a few people here that have these devices. The idea of at TI-84 emulator for I devices was actually brought up here before somewhere(possibly in the topic discussing a wabbitemu port for android) on these boards. As to why it didn't progress any further, I can't say. This particular topic has a rather confusing title though. Based upon your title's name, it sounds like you are trying to emulate an ipod on the Ti 84. However, you are actually trying to do the opposite. You might want to rename the thread to "Ti-84 emulator for I pod/I devices", or something of that nature. That way, more people may be inclined to look at it. =)

Ok, i allready know it's possible to download programs from ticalc and other sites to the ipod, that would mean i can import and export those programs to and from the emulator

if you have no experience whatsoever, then writing an emulator is definitely not where you should start. make some simple games and other things first, and come back in a year or two, once you're thoroughly familiar with C, whatever SDK these "i" devices use, z80 assembly, and the inner workings of the 8x series. wabbitemu is definitely a good base to start from, and will remove a lot of work, but it's still a daunting task.

I think Android is a much friendlier market, as far as emulators go - Google developed a much more open system, not as horribly closed as Apple's market. There are a bunch of emulators (NES/SNES, GB/GBC/GBA, even N64) out there on the Android market. Plus, Android developer fees are 20$, compared to Apple's 100$; that, and Java is a MUCH better language than Objective-C. Sounds like you don't have a lot of compy access; there's an app in the Android market that allows you to develop apps on the actual phone - a full IDE on an actual phone that (at least on the reviews) people say they've developed some apps with. TBH I didn't see it, my friend just told me about it at school but its certainly an idea to look into.

Of course, iOS has its advantages, such as a gajillion more apps and I would imagine some better game engines because obviously there are a ton of iOS app developers. Regardless of what you choose to code for, stick to it. Good luck with whatever.

It was I who was advocating the development of wabbit for iOS in that topic. I have an iPod Touch and an iPad, and am a developer who has used both C and Objective-C before. I do all of my coding on-device (with Textastic as my editor, iSSH as my console client, and gcc/clang as my compilers (I am the one who ported clang FYI)), so I can code much more often. Both of my devices are jailbroken, and I know more about this platform than almost anybody else (besides jailbreak devs and some app developers).

In short, I am willing to help write it and test it, but I don't know how well you know coding, and whether we could accomplish this.

We could build this off of the source of wabbit on android or mac, which would help out immensely.

I think it would be better if i help you, sounds like you have much much more experience, and if i can code on my ipod, then i'll look it up. So you become the "leader" nd i become your "sidekick" :P

Ok guys, so is there an app in cydia?

If there isn't one, i beg you, make one, it's one off the only ways i can go on scripting much more. And could it be possible to make a coder and assembler app?

Just asking :p

Quote crossposted from the other thread.

If you do manage to get a TI-84+ emulator up and running on the iOS devices, you can code/assemble asm using <a href=http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/431/43140.html>mimas</a>
