I'd love that.  That would be the best thing ever! ;D
Actually, the best thing ever would be sliced bread.  But whatever :P

Thanks guys!

Calc as a flash drive with KOS would be EPIC. I assume this could make it much easier to load things on your calc, right?
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

It would make it tons easier to get things on-calc.  I personally have never gotten TI-Connect working, and I've even considered writing a program to link with my Nspire to send files from my computer to my TI-84+.

With KnightOS, you can pretty much use your calculator as a flash drive.  (I'm actually planning on experimenting with making the computer think it *is* a flash drive.)

Flash Drive <3

I like it to be castle in a knights vocabulary.

Maybe Sniper for Graphs?

Hah, I don't like it to be written "SirCmPwn" there, I'd prefer KnightOS :S

Why didn't TI do this in the first place, especially with the nspire?

I've wondered why too. To get us to wait an hour longer just to install software? :P

And as a suggestion, how about animated screenshots that actually work? :D

I think that's demonstrating the cool login feature.

Will the TI-BASIC interpreter remain external;?
I'm not going to talk too much about this, because I haven't put much thought into it yet.

I already enjoy using MP in math class (yes I know everyone hates it but personally, since I only use my calc for Axe programming or for math, I find it perfectly OK) but an OS that would surpass TIOS in math capabilities would be awesome.
Here's a mock up of the home screen:


I actually just saw this. It looks nice! Especially grayscale prompts and the mathprint. "Catalog" is spelled wrong, though ;)

Maybe, a GIF of KnightOS Castle, instead of a single picture

I meant taking animated screenshots in real time with a real calc. TI-Connect has a feature to do this, but (of course) it's broken.

I've attempted it in order to test drawing libraries, but haven't done too much on it yet.

I'll look into it.  It might be possible to simply save a .gif file on-calc, seeing as the file system has support for any filetype.

Wow, so you could just do a screenshot on-the-fly...
* Darl181 contemplates how that would help TWHG
And to use it as a flash drive...no more waiting for periph8x or trying to make a usb8x cable..
Edit: hey, "/me" is a tag!
