Summary of Recent News on cnCalc.org
« on: June 09, 2014, 03:51:16 am »
Hi all, I've just finished my College Entrance Exam! Here is the recent news on cnCalc, the Chinese community.
And I suggest Bing translation for English readers. It's far better than Google.


Hikari.uiharu (Also Anderain Lovelace) released KuroScripter, an ONS-like text adventure engine. And the first game ported is the legendary... (#NSFW)じょそうさんみゃく!
http://www.cncalc.org/thread-10357-1-1.html


Nbzwt updated the ArithMax OS. (http://www.cncalc.org/thread-10366-1-1.html)Here is the update log:
Code: [Select]
1.  Auto power off is supported.
2.  The contrast setting will be saved after power off.
3.  16-line scrolling display is supported.
4.  Add the 2048 game. ( Input 2048() in calculation mode)
5.  Fix the FSMC bug mentioned in http://www.cncalc.org/thread-10351-1-1.html
6.  Increase the RAM allocation to strengthen the stability.
7.  Fix the bug of maximum contrast.
8.  Fix the bug that can't input letter J in alpha mode.
9.  Add the time display function.
10. Fix the CPU frequency adjustment bug. The origin freq of previous OS is 84 MHz, half of the designed speed.

Chinese font is added and gray-scale display is also accomplished, all by 诗诺比. (http://www.cncalc.org/thread-10362-1-1.html and http://www.cncalc.org/thread-10352-1-1.html)

A small modification version of the ArithMax PCB is made by 怺逺_海子. A serial port output is added on the top. (http://www.cncalc.org/thread-10450-1-1.html)

Nbzwt made this advertising video, which shows how he assembled the ArithMax:

He also wrote the guide of building the development environment:

A surveyor uploaded several photos of his CASIO FD-10 Pro. (Quite professional)

About ArithMaxOS, is that a totally new third party TI-OS or a calculator shell/kernel?

ArithMaxOS is a complete new OS for a calculator which is not from TI nor from Casio but community built, even though it's based on a Casio case, from what I can tell from TI Planet newses I read about it.
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.

Oooh I see. I think I might have read about it somewhere. I wonder if that calc can be bought outside China? I remember the HP community did something similar with the WP34 or something, based on an HP model.

I don't think it can be bought anywhere, it's just a project for the fun/challenge ;)

IIRC that was a new firmware.

The ArithMax Entry is in alpha test phrase. We want to put it into mass production, but there still are problems to solve...
There are several reports on TI-Planet(in French of course).

BTW, the similar project of the hp community is the 43S, a fully new-design calculator. The 34S is based on HP-20B/30B.
