Mhmm could you post what you had so far? It's up to you, though. Also can grayscale be used in such bars (knowing the OS itself is in grayscale0?

That's the thing, it's very disappointing, TI-84 axe parser can do greyscale, however while Ti-nspire should do grey scale, it can't. Edit: yes it can now, new discoveryBasically it's already hard to create graphical games for it because you have to put it as a scatter plot (a bit inefficient, but works), however, what i think is REALLY so very disappointing is that the OS doesn't allow you to put in different color pixels. I mean seriously, the CAsio 9850 allowed it, if Ti didn't have grey scale plotting to show different line equations for example, then it really is shameful.

Yet another reason why the OS is limiting the TI-nspire's potential. A custom OS or Skin like doorscs7 should be made for it in Assembly. It would do TI good.

After saying all that, I think, DJ, I should post stuff like that time when I said i made a great discovery and stuff in my Introduce Yourself Section, remember. Thanks, DJ Omni for the inspiriation!

So listing/summarising the stuff still to be developed:

1: animating health bars (possible)
2: This is an idea to simulate the grey scale colour as realistically as possible: for darker colours, put each pixel closer together, for lighter colours put each pixel further away, this would be even harder to implement than what I have already done as when changing colour the plots would have to be recalculated, still it would look like polka dot patterns instead of true greyscale.
ASSEMBLY STUFF
3: Greyscale plotting

Next post: more details on my current progress

Maybe he had a similar idea and it's a coincidence? But you may want to check his program to make sure.

oh it's by elementcoder. don't worry guys, we both keep email contact with each other and he told me that he was working on something similar. id better try his program...

Ok now ive tried it...
his health bars are quite different and the same to mine... a advantage of his is that they can be dragged around without affecting the bar... he uses some geometry method that i haven't figured out yet...

Also i am releaseing early a newer version of my health bars that should be on ticalc.org
