i can't use the arrow keys

You're in luck, I recently released a version that lets you use the arrow keys on the touchpad: http://ourl.ca/3840/236372

Hey calc84maniac, I really need help!

Okay, so I just brought this TI-nspire CX, however, it's on version 3.1 :S... And I can't downgrade it. (Or can i O.o... If there is a way please tell me how)

So, I want to play the color game boy games, and I'm guessing that will only work on version 2.0.1 and 2.1 and 1.7
Is there a way to play those games on my calculator version 3.1?
And if I can, how do I do it?

Please, I have been looking for days, and I really need help.

Thanks in advance.

You have to wait for ndless 3.1.
It is in work at the time.
(edit: you can have videos of it running somewhere but there is no public release for now)

By the way, welcome to the forums, you can introduce yourself here

I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

The TI-Nspire CX cannot run OS versions prior to 3.0, because those only existed for non-CX calculators. Ndless 3.1 is coming soon, though, and I've already prepared a color version of the emulator. So just wait for the next Ndless release :)

In fact you got the exact right OS for future Ndless builds. :P (Although I heard Ndless 3.1 will also support OS 3.0.2, but maybe I'm wrong). Also welcome to the forums :)

Ah, I see.

Well, I don't want to be a nuisance, but, may I ask... How long will it take for the next Ndless to be released? ^^

This will depend from the stability, from the time people will be able to spend on it, etc. Summary: "nobody knows" :)

And in order to avoid double-posting in a short amount of time, you should edit your posts ;)

Hey calc84maniac, I would like to make a request:

Your gpSP-Nspire program allows one to remap the controls for the emulator AND the actual program, can you make a minimal GUI that allows options to be changed like gpSP-Nspire allows? You could add a few things to let people fool around. :)
Specifically, I wish that fast forward were toggleable, rather than having to hold a button. I am right handed, so the arrow keys or even the numpad are difficult to use and use the right side for the other buttons. I'm much more used to using the arrow keys and escape, tab, and documents for the A, start, and B buttons.
Plus, I can't press the B button and fast forward at the same time... Which is a hassle when you're tyring to play a game that is much easier to get through on fast forward.

He lost the source in a hard drive crash, so it can't be modified anymore. :/
(except with hex editing apparently :P but that's pretty hard)

A patch should be feasible, then. But I can't write it!
Just add something to the very end of the file and something at the very beginning to call to it :)
Keep trying.

Hex editing is really only feasible for really small changes, like changing an internal setting or a small snippet of code to adjust an existing behavior to be slightly different. You can't really expect someone to be able to completely add a feature with fully-functional GUI and everything via a hex edit, unfortuantely

Runer, I meant patch using a compiled patch. That's how games are patched: same language code is written and the patchermodifies the code accordingly.
Keep trying.

How can he know what to patch when he doesn't have the source code as reference any more to determine what parts of the binary represent what original source code/data?

So it's obviously a lot of work... Hrm. Darn.
At least it works this well so far. I'll try not to lose my Genesis Emu...
Keep trying.
