TI Question
« on: February 06, 2012, 01:03:18 am »
Hi! I'm new to this place!
I have a TI-nspire Clickpad (no-CAS) running Nspire 3.0
I have a few questions about it:
- What can I do with this thing called ndless?
- Can I run a TI-84 simulator on the Nspire because I don't have the other keypad.
- What games are available on the Nspire.

Thanks :D

"3.0" ? Ndless 3.1 works only on 3.1.0.392.

What can I do with this thing called ndless?
In theory, everything: Ndless gives access to arbitrary native code (compiled C / assembled ASM), which is immensely more powerful and faster than the two other languages for programming Nspire calculators:
* a wimpy BASIC, which doesn't even allow drawing pixels to the screen... even the 20-year-old TI-81 can do that !
* a proprietary, purely interpreted Lua, which has significant two-way incompatibilities with standard Lua: it cannot even read or write files (!), and it has a proprietary event-based toolkit for keyboard / graphical / timer user interaction. The second thing is not necessarily inherently bad, it's just that Nspire programs are not portable to, or from, anywhere else, AFAICT.

There's no third-party 84+ emulator, and I don't remember about a program which can launch the 84+ emulator embedded into the non-CAS OS.

For instance, nDOOM, GBC4Nspire which allows playing many GameBoy (Color) games, NESpire which allows playing many NES games :)
