mViewer CX Edition, the color BMP image reader is here!

I've just released mViewer CX Edition 1.0, the color BMP image reader for TI-Nspire CX.
Note that grayscale support is broken for now: it won't work on older Nspire - just use the stable classic mViewer in that case.


The Nspire OS let you view images... But mViewer let you do much more than that:
- view images larger than the screen
- zoom in/out in the images
- scroll in the images
- intuitive scroll with the touchpad



Any document can now be converted and viewed in color on your Nspire CX:



For documents which don't include photos, you should convert to 8-bits BMP (256 colors) with an RLE compression. This will be enough and will save you much space.

For photos, you should prefer 16-bits BMP (65536 colors) IN R5G6B5. Don't use more than that: it will be displayed but it's a waste of space as the Nspire CX screen won't follow.

I need an nSpire CX!!!! Somebody buy me one!!! lol I'd program the heck out of one of those things. Okay, I need to calm down and finish my current project...

Seriously though. Great work. Very impressive! That goes for everyone involved in nSpire development. I've been thoroughly impressed with everything I've heard so far. This is proving to be a very exciting time for the calculator programming community.

DOA for the TI-Nspire actually would be great. :P You could possibly either update Bwang's raycaster to run on Ndless 3.1 and the CX and use that for the engine or you could just do a Doom mod WAD for the computer and then make sure it works on the TI-Nspire, so we can play that. Of course your own raycaster/engine works too. :)
