please don't paste the same question in multiple places, particularly in unrelated subfora. i've removed the other two posts.

ah, this is really interesting; there are so few rts-like things, and most of them don't really run.

keep a up!

ASM / Re: Should I learn ASM?

Well, Do you already know how girls work?
Sometimes it looks ugly down there, but for others is just a wonderful discovery. See,  it all depends. I'd say give it a go, oh and BTW, ASM changes with the cpu, hehe. :P


thanks for this, at any rate. am sort of out of the loop, so may not have heard for a while

Calculator C / Re: C++ on Nspire-way through eye of a needle?

oh, i'm sorry. i'll try to simplify my english X_X

if you have windows 7, i would recommend using a virtual machine. a good option is virtualbox. install the virtual machine on your windows system and install a linux operating system on the virtual machine. then, using the virtual machine, follow the instructions given for a linux system.

overall, this is the easiest route. installing mingw is very tedious and difficult. installing a linux distribution in a virtual machine takes only a few mouse clicks.

Installing C++ on Windows seems simple, compared to the Nspire Version. Handling it is not so simple...
But using another OS for using C++ is not what I would tellm user friendly, it means a 2 stage way and handling linux is not a thing that I get used in short time. But thanks for your answer.

as i said, either going through the steps of setting up mingw et. al or just using literally any desktop / server operating system other than windows is necessary for getting this to work. windows has "C and C++ support", but it's an afterthought that has never conformed to the standard everybody else does.

or i guess you can try to struggle with whatever frankenstein of gpl-stripped code and ancient bash it is they're calling an "ubuntu subsystem" on windows 10, but don't expect that to go anywhere either.

A important aspect for a language is the acceptance of it. Nicest language is not attractive to me when I don't find much support and few ppl who uses it. So I think C++ has some usage for Nspire but C I don't see so often. And programming on the old calculators with bw and non lighted lcd I don't like. Thanks for your hints.

C is a much more sensible choice for this kind of thing, honestly. the potential benefits of C++ over C can be summed up as higher-level abstractions and auto-pointers for handling memory, which can lead to non-trivial overhead on a system this tight on resources. take those away, and you're left with what's essentially an out-dated C fork.

as for language acceptance, C is still very much a relevant language (see whether it's used the most for this particular platform shouldn't be relevent except in terms of library support.

windows is very bad at supporting developers, and c and c++ development especially so. other systems have all these toolchain prerequisites installed by default (or, if not, easily available via package manager and official packages, which take five minutes or so to install). windows was not designed to support c and c++ development, however, and all microsoft's attempts at adding it have been an afterthought that's perpetually non-standards-compliant.

so no, there isn't any other way unless you're willing to switch operating systems, basically.

The Axe Parser Project / Re: Getting Started with Axe Parser
« on: January 03, 2017, 10:36:09 pm » is an include file, which is used by assembly developers writing programs that interact with the axe application itself and is sort of equivalent to a library used in other languages.

simply running the axe application is enough to install the hook. however, tokens will only be replaced while in the program editor and editing an axe source file (a file which, on its first line, has a . [used to indicate a comment in axe] followed by the name of the file that should be generated when compiling the file).

edit: added a screencap

you're welcome ^_^

and don't worry about being "productive"; just have fun! that's when productiveness is most likely to happen anyways

axe uses the same token set as TI-BASIC, but the functionality associated with each token is completely different. commands attempt to use tokens with names appropriate for their functionality (like Circle( being used for drawing circles), but some commands can't be assigned this easily to an existing token name. thus, the axe application uses a token hook to override the names of those tokens in the interface.

if you check Commands.html, which runer mentioned above, you can see which axe tokens override which interface tokens (if any) by checking for the green text right-aligned in the commands column.

in order to enable these alternate names, then, send the axe application to your calculator, run it, and choose from there to install the token hook. this token hook can be disabled again from the same application, or it can be wiped during a ram clear, meaning you'll have to reinstall it any time your calculator crashes (which will probably be often, if you're messing around with axe for the first time). this process can be automated with an application called zStart ( ), which also has lots of other potentially useful functionality

have fun ^_^

Computer Projects and Ideas / Re: Pebble MPD Client

yay mpd ^_^

Yay! More pebble users :)

When will it be available on other pebbles? (OG, PTR, P2 etc).

How hard do you think it would be to add in album art like Music Boss does?

mpd's database / protocol don't provide for album art, so any implementation would have to fetch it from some other service, musicbrainz or amizon or whatever
