TI-Nspire / TI-Nspire Linking Software
« on: July 05, 2012, 06:59:13 pm »
How come it's got to be such a pain in the *&# to find? Seriously?!?  :banghead:

I remember back when I could just download the TI-Nspire Computer Link software and use that. But now that doesn't work, and I have to mess around with a free trial of their Student software and reinstall it every 30 days. Is there any less irritating and inconvenient way to send programs to and from the TI-Nspire?

Casio Calculators / BASIC Question
« on: February 29, 2012, 08:00:02 pm »
Hi all,

I am seeking to make some programs that use a moveable cursor on the graph screen. I do not know of any command on the Casio that functions like Input on the TI's. Does anybody know if one exists?

TI Z80 / PAINT Image Editor (TI-83+/84)
« on: December 16, 2011, 05:32:08 pm »
This is a project I've been working on for years. When I started making pictures for my BASIC programs, I always hated using the crappy editor in the TI OS. So I went online, but all the picture editors I could find were either slow, hard-to-use, or impractical. So I made my own!

This paint program is built to be useful. I've built it from scratch and added in features over the years when I needed them. Despite being programmed in TI-Basic, it runs nice and quick, easily saves to any of the ten standard TI pictures, and is loaded up with handy tools including different sizes of text, lines, shapes, and fills.

Most of the features are easy to use and are documented in the built-in Help section of the program. However, there are some things I'd still like to put out there for you all:

1. If you'd like to load what's on the graph screen right now, choose the "Pen" option on the "Load" menu.

2. When the picture opens, the cursor is an inverted pixel. This is called "Trace" mode. You can move it around with the arrow keys, or press [2nd] and an arrow key to move it quickly. To draw with it, press "Trace"(F4) or select "1: Pen" from the Tools menu. To erase the pixel, press "Zoom"/F3 or select "Eraser" from the Tools menu on page 2. To go back to Trace mode (moving the cursor without drawing), press "Graph"/F5. The pixel will flicker/appear gray when it is drawing or erasing. You can also press "Y="/F1 for the File menu, or "Window"/F2 for the Tools menu.

3. You can adjust how many pixels the cursor moves when an arrow key is pressed. This is very useful for drawing dotted lines, or filling shapes or portions of the picture. To do this, press Y= to enter the File menu, select "4: Options...", and then select "1: Acceleration". You will then be given a prompt to input the number of pixels the cursor moves with each keypress. Then, you will be taken back to the picture with a standard graph screen cursor. Press ENTER once you're moved the graph screen cursor to where you'd like to start drawing. You can reset this back to the regular 1 pixel per keystroke from the "3: Reset..." in the File menu.

4. If you lose track of the drawing cursor, you can reset its location back to the center of the screen by entering the File menu, selecting "3: Reset" and then "2: Reset Cursor".

5. You can switch between Trace and Pen modes by pressing Enter.

If you've got any other questions, feel free to ask me here and I'll be glad to help!

You can also download the Paint program from the last attachment after the screen shots.

I've been working on this crappy little Windows program for my TI-86 during school for a while and just recently finished it. I put it in the attachments just in case if you'd like to try it out.

I'm having some trouble launching the Dummy OS with OSLauncher on a Clickpad TI-Nspire. Does anybody here know how to do it?

Any help would be great!

Complete TI-Nspire Character Map

This document contains a spreadsheet with detailed information on all 540 usable characters on the TI-Nspire, along with a program that allows you to use symbols that are not found in the Catalogue.

TI-Nspire / TI-Nspire Character Map
« on: April 11, 2011, 07:06:11 pm »
Over the past couple of weeks, I've been exploring the depths of the TI-Nspire character set and have documented it here in Charmap.tns. This document contains a spreadsheet with detailed information about all 540 useable characters on the TI-Nspire (including some that aren't included in the catalog), along with a program that allows you to use the extra "hidden" symbols in other documents. If you got a TI-Nspire, download it and give it a try!

EDIT: This has been tested to work in System 2.0, 2.1, and 3.0.1. It should be fully compatible with 3.1.

Other Calculators / Are Clickpad TI-Nspires still made?

I'm just curious.  Has TI discontinued the  Click  Pad TI-Nspires?

Other Calculators / TI-Nspire Mouse--Why not on Clickpads?
« on: April 03, 2011, 03:03:10 pm »
This has always puzzled me. On newer operating systems (2.x), you can move the mouse anywhere on the screen. But on the original Click Pad models, you can't.

This has always frustrated me because in System 2.x, you have to hold the mouse over the top of the screen in order to see what mode(s) it is in. I can't do that with the clickpad.

I have recently been reading on here about people patching the TI-Nspire OS to do things, and I wonder if patching it to have the mouse cursor on all the time is feasible.

I was able to get the mouse to work in the My Documents browser through the glitch in the link below, but I haven't found anything else.

Anybody got any ideas?

Other Calculators / Tl-Nspire OS 3.0 coming today?

Right now, at 12:32 PM EDT where I'm at, TI's Nspire web site says it's down for maintanance till 1:00 EDT (12:00 CDT). I wonder if it's down to change things for the new TI-Nspire system. What do you all think?

TI-Nspire / TI-Nspire Mouse Glitch
« on: March 12, 2011, 02:44:38 pm »
A few years ago, I found out a funny little glitch on the TI-Nspire that lets you use the mouse cursor in My Documents. I forgot about it till recently. I've tested it on systems 1.2-2.1, and others have tested it to work in 3.0.
Here's how to do it.

Step 1: Make a new document (don't save it).
Step 2: Add just a Graphs & Geometry.
Step 3: Switch over to Plane Geometry View.
Step 4: Open "My Documents" while the unsaved document is still open.
Step 5: Delete "Unsaved Document".
Step 6: Press [Ctrl] and [Z] to undo the deletion.

You should now see the little mouse cursor on the Documents screen. You can move it around and click on things.
