General Calculator Help / Re: Programming

As far as I know, for lua You've got 2 options: You could get the student/teacher software and do it from there. Unfortunately this approach costs real moneys ( :( ), but you get an IDE-like environment with an emulator and all. On the other hand, you could get a third party tool (like Luna, for example) which will convert and package your lua files into a .tns file. This article on hackspire gives a pretty nice rundown of the methods you could use and also links to a page with documentation of all the API's on the nspire: If you are new to programming in lua, I'd also recommend you to first do some tutorials on a computer instead of jumping straight into the nspire. There's a lot of really nice lua tutorials on the internet. Aside from that, you will also need to learn about how event-based programming works, since this is the model that the nspire API uses.
Good luck with your program! ;)

Calculator C / What's the best sprite editor for TI 68k C/ASM?

The title pretty much explains everything. A pencil-like feature would be perfect (like in paint), so i don't have to click on every pixel individually, and instead just drag my mouse with the button pressed down. Greyscale and masking support would be nice too.

Sounds like you are trying to make a TI-BASIC program. Sorry to disappoint you, but there are almost no i/o routines in nspire BASIC, let alone graphical ones. :(
You might be able to use dialogs though. Also, if you are willing to go PC-side, there are some utilities which allow you to create Lua progarms for your calc.

TI-Nspire / Re: nPDF - A document viewer for the Nspire
« on: March 04, 2020, 05:22:59 pm »
It's actually really simple: Just rename your file from "something.pdf" to "something.pdf.tns". As far as I know, adding ".tns" at the end of the filename let's you upload any file through the official software!

I suggest you to read through this thread:

TI-Nspire / Re: Jens' Script Editor - An on-calc lua editor
« on: December 15, 2019, 09:35:36 pm »
I kinda dabbled into this a while ago, so I think, yoou're supposed to use the clipboard.

So I recently upgraded from my trusty old WinXP laptop (I still love it, tho; I'm sure I'll find a nice retirement job for it) to a newer one, with Win10. Now, the thing is, i really dislike the new start menu. I can cope with the (arguably subjective) uggliness of the design and such, but the start menu is the thing that bugged me the most. So I went out, and installed a replacement (OpenShell, to be precise) and most of the time it works great. there's only one issue: It has some hangups, if I don't use it for a while. Now, what I suspect is happening here isn't actually the fault of the program. As far as I know Windows 7 and upwards have something called "idle mode" for applications that are currently unused in the backgraund. Those programs are moved to the page file, to free up RAM, and when they are brought up by the user, they get loaded back. Thing is, this causes delays (a few second max, worst case scenario), which are quite annoying, when one tries to bring up the start menu. My question is: is it possible to make a program "resident", to prevent it form going into the "idle" state and getting unloaded? Any help much appreciated.

You know, you'll need to implement a whole TCP/IP stack to use it even for basic remote console applications though, right? The nspire OS never got a homebrew internet solution, so you won't find anything remotely similar to a browser.
If you have the skills and knowledge to pull this off, then I'm holding my thumbs for you, be warned though.

I'm honestly not sure...
One thing that comes to my mind, is to take the things, that you believe produce the error, and search for them in ndless changelogs. Maybe you can find somethind there. Also, one other thing you could do, is asking on other forums, since this one is no longer that big as it once was (but i heard that there's quite a lot of activity on You could also check for help).
Edit: Good luck, by the way. What is your end goal with this anyway?

This looks really nice! I especially like, how you use graphics, to make what's essentially a simplistic interface look fancy. These screenshots remind me of some Amiga games. BTW, do you plan on doing a 68k port?

Did you try to compile anything else (like hello world, f.ex.)? From my experience, compiling the ndless sdk is a total mess, so maybe it's just your compiler... Congrats anyway for getting through the compilation of the compiler stage. (I failed :/ )

TI 68K / TI92 Overclocking
« on: September 08, 2019, 01:30:38 pm »
Hi there! So I decided to overclock my ti92, and i found this site: and I want to do the version with the switch. There's one thing, though: the diagram showing the circuit with the switch and the two capacitors makes me suspicious. According to the article it should allow one to switch between an open cirquit and 57pF, which would make the switch make the calc either go slower than before the mod, or not work at all, depending on the position of the switch. To my mind it should look a bit more like on the attached pic (I modified it). Also, what kind of switch should I use?
