TI Calculators / Re: Nspire CX CAS - Custom User Menus???
« on: November 01, 2015, 02:53:04 pm »
Ah well if we count old versions, then I know about 3 issues :P
("Class has ended", Ndless 3.6 installer, an older bug (fixed in 3.6?) where a separator as the first element did something wrong and ended up displaying the current language as the item label (resource #0))

The only way I'm aware of to add custom menus is through Lua's toolpalette:
It's very buggy sometimes, though...
I've heard of literally only one weird issue, and it is/was when there were many, many menu items :P
For 99% of the uses cases, it's fine. And it's not like we have much choice anyway.

TI Z80 / Re: Output in exact format
« on: October 14, 2015, 05:36:39 pm »
Yes, the reference one being Autocalc (by Critor), which has existed for many years.

(Note that the TI-83 Premium CE now has a built-in exact math engine)

Not sure if it's "stupid" but it's weirdly popular, at least :P It's been around 1000 generations/day for some time now... And the majority come from Spanish-speaking countries.

Push the mini-USB cable to the end, in the calculator. The port is a bit tight so you may think it's well plugged, but it's probably not... (and since you see the LED lighting up you assume it's good, but nope, that's because the power pins touch before the data pins)

3.9.1 should have worked indeed. This specific process happened to a few people, and were able to go back to 3.9.1...
But anyway, yes, now you're stuck with v4.0

What's the hardware revision of your calculator, out of curiosity ? It's the last character of the serial number on the back of the device.

There's no problem with the battery itself.
It's a known fact that if your calculator was shipped with 3.9.1, you can't go back to previous versions, because the hardware is sufficiently different enough not to be supported by previous OSes related to battery etc.
Your only choice is to go back to 3.9.1 and install ndless 3.9 if you need it.

News / Re: Game Boy emulation reaches TI-84+CSE calculators
« on: September 05, 2015, 08:52:42 am »
The TI-83 Premium CE is basically the French equivalent of the international TI-84 Plus CE, and those two have different processors than the TI-84+CSE models.
So... nope, this specific emulator isn't going to work with the CE. It'd have to be rewritten specifically for them, which I think is currently being done :)

it would be great if instead of having their version of the zip, they could link to the TI Planet archive
That reminds me... I'll just say here that TI-Planet is reasonable enough to let people who absolutely need a direct link, use our download.php link (archive-id based, and which will make the user download the always-up-to-date file), and not necessarily the HTML download info page itself (even though the latter indeed provides useful information/metadata, like the license, screenshots, additional details, etc.). That said, it should be a requirement (basic decency?) to provide info such as author name(s), license info, etc, wherever the download is.

Too bad some other website(s) don't provide/want such an external download capability and restrict them to their own website.
("A word to the wise"...)

It's also noteworthy that TI-Planet tries to link directly to the original source when possible (or at least wherever the author uploaded it himself), which makes sense when such websites provide a permalink system, otherwise, as soon as the link changes for whatever reason, downloads stop working, which is a big no-no for the end-user.
Recently, we've made it even clearer that some archives point to external sources, by effectively writing "ext" in the download button label, as well as the source domain in the info section.
We've also just added (yesterday, as of this post's date) a feature that will make the download fallback to a local backup of the file if the external source is down for some reason (but that requires us to make a local backup in the first place, it's not automatic; it will probable be done for important things only)
All that because the end-user must not have to face the consequences of having an unstable source host.

@Adriweb Wow, that's completely uncalled for and rude. If you have such a suspicion, you can easily pm and Admin or moderator. However, I don't think that's even the case here.
It's the choice of words that fit what I (and others) had in mind. It's not [meant to be] rude, but I'm just stating the facts as I'm seeing them.
Regarding the "bot-ness", it's with the random capital letters and brackets, and regarding the "bigotedness", it's the overwhelming usage of superlatives and some specific adjectives. He could have talked about anyone else, I'd have said the same thing.

You kind of sound like a bot mixed with bigotedness towards that closed-source emulator's author, and it's getting ridiculously laughable at this point.

Edit: I've updated the link, on my post above, to the latest version

Lua / Re: Well, I need help again.
« on: August 18, 2015, 06:22:58 pm »
You'd need to show your code.

One thing I can think of that you may be doing: calling more than once (per image). If you're doing that, don't look further (for now), it's the culprit.

In addition to the official API PDF, most of the things you need to know are explained in Steve Arnold (Compasstech) 's Nspire Lua tutorials.
The docs have been also extended/exemplified on's wiki.
There are also some interesting tricks there.

Regarding animations especially, you'll have to look at timer.start and update coordinates in on.timer.
There's a lib here that could be useful:

Check out those documents here, some of them uses that lib:
FormulaPro also uses it (a slightly modified version, IIRC)

There are now Ndless 3.6 and even 3.9, pick the one corresponding to your version.
If you have 4.0 however, you're stuck for now.

Lua, 152
JS, 112.

(counted both with the "function K(n)" header)
