##### The Secret of the Health Bars for the TI-nspire! 2nd topic for HBs
« on: October 08, 2010, 06:36:26 am »
sneakpeek here!!! more coming soon!
Sneakpeek here!!!
Spoiler For Spoiler:
First for every line of pixels you want to create you must create 2 lists and save separately to 2 variables, 1 will determine the x coordinate, 1 for the y coordinate eg: px1, py1

Ok here's more now
As you have looked at my screenshots from my first topic for HBs, there are 2 health bars. I zoomed the graphing window in so that my values for the variables would line up. with me so far? window x min -10 x max 10. y min -2 y max 5.44 I adjusted the window for the best fit and so that the bars wouldn't look too fat or thin

Now onto how it works
I created 4 'lines' of pixels for each bar so the first bar has variables px1 - px4 and py1 - py4 that determine how much health is in the bar. got it?
You have to trial and error to see which coordinates will work. you can also zoom in to see more clearly and zoom back out to see how it will look to the rest of the people who try the program

How to get pixels to display???
Not many people have discovered how to do this. Only Elliot way with his graphical card games and some others have got it. It took me a while before i got it too.
To get the points to plot you go to the graphing window. Press menu and change the type of graph from function to scatter plot. This is how you can put in x and y coordinates. Got it?
Then go down the bottom to the function bar, you will see s1 { ->
->
something like that. at the top put in px1 at the bottom put in py1
when you have put in lists in for these two variables, the pixels should start showing
1 function for each line of pixels so s2 will have px2 and py2 and so on...

Cool, I'll check again for more info. For 8 pixel bars can you simply do a For() loop btw?

who's betting that if TI search bots find out about this they will have it disabled for the next OS version?

jk, just put the code in code tags, though

Why would TI be against this? It's not like it's an OS bug to run ndless

So, it sounds like you can plot horizontal lines of any length, am I right? This would be so nice for programming.

ooh lots of commenets!
for DJ omni, i think i kind of get whtat you mean the For( loop can create animating health bars!!!
also one note, my cdalc right now is dead and i have to wait to get new batteries, fortunately i have the program on my computer i can run it through the emulator and write my tutorial from there. stay tuned!

I don't think ti would be actually against this since it's just using their incapable BASIC language. just a BASIC program. however if i were to use assembly (coding in C which i don't know how to) well that would be more prone to TI suspicion

but if they did actually sue me or something, well after TI-84SE discontinuation and the rest... it's probably getting unethical. seriously, i think Casio doesn't even go nearly as far as limiting TI-nspire BASIC language in the first place

Then again i think TI doesn't really care about what programs are released in BASIC language anyway (look at all the ones on ticalc.org) i think it's the assembly programs ti's worried about...

Ya, there is no reason TI would sue you. You haven't done anything wrong. It is only the Ndless stuff and such that they want to stop, or at least that's what we think.

Any chance at a code example of how it's done? or at least, what the plotting command is called? I can't figure out how to graph them The library doesn't have any commands I can find for this sort of thing.

Does it have to be OS 2.0/2.1 or does it work with lower ones?

ah im getting to that, there is no actual command however... check my first post soon for the big revelation!

I have now uploaded it to ticalc.org, check it in the next few days for the program.
now i made myself a promise to give SnakeX a first opportunity...
well i owe him one and have sent the program to him! The program shall be available to everyone else very soon!

I like how you said you wanted to move on from the whole code theft issue and even begged for the topic to be split, yet now you launch a provocative remark at me because I wanted to move on too by changing my mind about trying the program or not.

sorry i didn't exactly mean that. It was meant to be an informal question...
Arrgh this is exactly what i feared... If i got myself banned a second time then I know it would be a permanent one...
This hasn't felt like a tutorial, i might need to restart...
