4th dimension welcome on the forums, but yeah the OS was actually an actual 8xu file. I still even have a copy on my computer and I think the copy ThePenguin77 gave me is still even on Google Docs. We just took down the links to avoid issues. :P

I think the key part of this OS was the removal of Asm(), AsmComp() and AsmProgram tokens.

I got a copy of it too.  I thought  it  might  be  funny to  spread  around through  means  other than hosting on a server.

Maybe for next year we could get the whole entire community to do something like announce the TI-87 or something...

I wish I had been in on it, then I'd feel better about telling my friend.
Me too. I told my friend at school. Of course, he wouldn't have put it past TI either to make something like that OS.


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

What kinda ruined it though was the ad. It would've been a million times more effective if the ad was shown to be a fake, done in photoshop or something.

Yeah true. Keep in mind I needed in some ways to make it not 100% believable, though. If it wasn't too extreme, maybe more people would have fallen for it, although it wouldn't be as funny anymore. :P

Lol be careful to not ruin anyone's calc projects, though. :P If someone's working on a huge Axe/BASIC game at school since 2 years ago and he loses everything to OS 2.71MP crashes I doubt he'll like you. :P
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. Make sure to note that it's a joke OS and all that. You could actually get sued if someone loses everything due to this thing. O.O

The lack of MP at the beginning and then it being added when someone pointed it out didn't help.
Continuing to leave out the MP would have supported the theory that this was an internal build never meant to see sunlight that (un)intentionally did.

Well the MP was initially left out in ThePenguin post, but it looked more like a typo than anything else, since people sometimes refer to OS 2.53MP as OS 2.53.

As for the version jump, not necessarily to older members, because when Nspire OS 2.0 jumped straight to 2.1, almost nothing was added. TI probably made that to make it look like they added a lot, to have people be stuck with the hidden anti-downgrade protection included in 2.1. If they called it 2.0.2 or 2.0.5, fewer people would have updated, as they would have just thought it was a small fix adding practically nothing new.

I honestly never put MP after the OS names. I only did it later because people made such a big deal about it. As far as coding goes, 2.53MP and 2.55MP are 2.53 and 2.55. The MP was just something extra that TI added to the name and really has no effect on the OS. Even if someday TI does decide to drop the MP, it's not like they are going to remove MathPrint from the OS.

You can build a statue out of either 1'x1' blocks or 12'x12' blocks. The 1'x1' blocks will take a lot longer, but the final product is worth it.

Yeah I agree he did a nice job. Actually it's because of him that this joke came to fruition. :D I could still have made something up and create screenshots, but then it wouldn't have been as real as with an actual 8xu file. :D
