The USB romdump is excellent. Now many people can get their roms.

I got mine by getting a SilverLink from someone.

but will instructions on how to get it to work on most new Windows installs be included? For example, my new comp has Windows 7 x64 so I will obviously have trouble with drivers since I never dealt with this before.
Yes, such instructions will be included :)

Btw, for GTK+, will we be able to continue using TiEmu, TilEm and GIMP when TiLP is installed?
TheStorm / Jonimus recently reported success launching TILP with GIMP's GTK.
It would be great if you could make a system restore point before installing TILP (without installing the GTK+ it suggests), and double-test for yourself :)

I successfully installed the latest setup.exe in Windows 7. It seems to work all right because I received files. But my Windows 7 expired.

I also reinstalled in Linux from the svn. I will test it. ;)

I have now uploaded the sources of TILP II 1.14, GFM 1.0.4 and associated libraries :)

Many changes since TILP II 1.13, the most significant of which have already been summarized above (bugfixes for the Z80 and Nspire series, new DirectLink 84+ ROM dumper).
Source tarballs:
http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/libticonv-1.1.1.tar.bz2
http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/libtifiles2-1.1.3.tar.bz2
http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/libticables2-1.3.1.tar.bz2
http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/libticalcs2-1.1.5.tar.bz2
http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/tilp2-1.14.tar.bz2
http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_gfm/download/gfm-1.04.tar.bz2

I have also tentatively uploaded the installers for Windows, but I need to make a few tests with them.
If someone else wants to join the fun of testing by then, http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/setup.exe (TILP) and http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_gfm/download/setup.exe (GFM).

I have made public the maintainer recompilation scripts that I'm using, you can see them through http://svn.tilp.info/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/?rev=4308#dirlist
But *nix users can try https://github.com/debrouxl/tilp_and_gfm/blob/master/tilp/trunk/build/scripts/install_tilp.sh , start by looking inside the script.

EDIT in 2021: updated the link to the *nix install script.

does this run on mac?

Edit: Never mind. But, it would be cool if someone ported it to mac.

Yay! The new TILP finally can send files to my Nspire. Now I don't need to use a Windows machine to code for the Nspire. Thank you :)

It can send files in TI-Nspire mode? I am curious since it might come handy for people who have trouble with the link software. On my new PC, it takes 10 seconds to startup (it stays on the logo), while the 1.3 version took 4. I can,t imagine how slow 1.4 would be on a slow PC x.x. On my 2.93 GHz computer, TI-Nspire Comp Link software 1.3 takes 20 seconds to startup.

Yes, now that I've fixed it after witnessing that it didn't work (I posted the draft patch on #ti before committing it), TILP can reliably communicate with Nspires running OS 1.x :)
However, when I tried the first 2.0 OS, it didn't work at all. I should try again with the new 2.0.1.x OS.



TILP beta-testing restarts, BTW ;)
The UI changes that Jonimus has posted about in http://ourl.ca/4568 have been integrated in TILP SVN, and a new Windows installer (which also provides minor fixes in tilp and libticalcs) has been uploaded at http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/beta/setup.exe .
Enjoy, and please provide us with some feedback (ideas for improvements, wrinkles on icons or parts of the UI that might not work, etc.).
Thanks in advance :)

Nice to hear about TI-Nspire support :D

I wonder if future versions of Ndless will actually have support for TiLP. I know it currently requires TI-Nspire Computer link software to be installed to run but it takes so friggin long to startup. On my i7 quad-core processor, version 1.4 takes 10 seconds x.x

I installed TiEmu and now I can no longer send files to my Nspire (I get an "Invalid Packet" error or a connection timeout). Uninstalling TiEmu and reinstalling TILP doesn't help.

Ouch x.x, to be fair, this is what scares me a bit with TiLP. I fear it will break TiEmu/TilEm or vice versa, which is why I am unsure if I want to use it on this machine yet.

Never mind, a "make uninstall" followed by re-running the install script fixed it.
TIEmu and TILP really don't seem to like each other, though :(

x.x I wonder if there are plans to fix this. TiEmu is much better than VTI for emulating the 89, because in VTI half of the ROMs won't even let you change contrast and it's extremly hard to see the screen

Yes, though it can somewhat depend on which kinds of operations are attempted to exploit flaws in them.

This trouble between TIEmu and TILP might be due to the fact I haven't yet re-built TIEmu to use the newer libraries, so the sonames expected by TIEmu are older than the sonames expected by TILP.

For some reason, I cannot get the 32 KB Gameboy .sav file from VisualBoy Advance to send to my Nspire. It sends correctly on TI's official software, though. I wonder if this is a problem with TILP or because I installed TIEmu.
