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.
that would be AMAZING!
grayscale gifs would be too much to ask, i assume? XD

XD

But then there's an idea: native grayscale support by the OS! It would be really useful to coders...

The OS will support grayscale natively, and grayscale gifs would be too much to ask, good sir.

There could be a BW→grayscale converter or something...or grayscale natively supported

:D That would be awesome. How many levels are you planning to have?

It's really difficult to go from BW to greyscale, particularly with the small screen size of TI calcs. You somehow need to recover information about what varying level of greyscale the uniformly black pixels should be.

Including b/w or not? But either way, ROMcalls with grays would be really convenient :D

what about 2 b&w .gifs? It'd then be easy to put them together & get greyscale...
My TI-94+SE is broken.  I used some flawed existential conditioning on it, and it crashed. :(

A couple security flaws
Need a good backdoor short of reinstalling the OS
Completely immobilized and invalidated by Zstart. And rendered incompatible.

framework: mostly done
graphics engine: undergoing complete rewrite
still need character and enemy sprites!!! :P

If you really think about it, the colors will flash fast enough anyway that it would look like grayscale.

I thought TI-Connect only took still screenshots? Or do you mean the Mac version?
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

Yeah, the Mac version has tools to take animated screenshots, but once you start it, the link's broken. I'm pretty sure TI knows it doesn't work and just hasn't gotten around to add the animated screenshot feature yet.

no, because IIRC, you can't get a screenshot while a program is running. I'm sure you could if you had a hook for it or something, and sent whatever was in memory, but that would cause a delay in your program speed.

AH yeah it might be due to what Graph said.

You could probably get a BASIC program to send an animated screenshot because the OS still has full control over the calculator. There's no way you're getting a screenshot from an ASM program without a lot of fancy interrupt work, though.
