FIY, AmigaOS is quite user-friendly. I've used MacOS 7.5 once or twice, and it is quite similar, in the way windows and pull-down menus are handled. The difference is, that AmigaOS uses a two-button mouse, so if you are a windows or linux user, it should be even more fammilliar to you. As for the program, to run it you only need to unzip it and use the directory as a virtual drive in the emulator. Then you should just run the command line interface (which is pretty similar to the ms-dos command prompt, the main difference being that drives don't have letters (C:, D:, E:,...) but labels (SYSTEM:, C:, RAM:, WORK:,...) and that instead of using "cd .." to go up a directory you do "cd /") from "System > Tools > Shell", then type the name of your virtual drive with a ":" behind it. After pressing return, you should type "wfrng", and press return again.
As for the emulator, i think winuae is quite easy to use, but should you find yourself stuck, there's  plenty of good tutorials on the net for it. ;)

What do you mean by "over here"? Are you from the US? (I'm from Poland, although i'll be moving to Luxembourg this year.  :) AFAIK, they were far more popular in Europe than in America, so that's why i'm asking.)
EDIT: For testing the program, you can always just use WinUAE. (The best amiga emulator  for running programs and games easily. It has some custom driver enhancements, that even though they do not prevent programs, that run on real hardware from running correctly, makes it tough for devs to determine if the program they are testing on it will actually run on the real thing. I've heard, that, for example while the amiga version of scummvm has no problems with playing midi music through the fake emulated sound device, it is way slower to do it even on a 68060 enhanced machine.) You will need some kickstart roms, and images of the OS floppies or hard drive installation. (If you want to, i could PM you these.)

It's for AmigaOS, the bestiest OS ever to see the daylight! Go and buy your Amiga machine right now on fleabay or some other shady place! In case you are a traitor of mankind's ideals someone whan o wants a new machine you can buy a new AmigaONE machine, but you'll have to wait a lot and pay a LOT.
As for the risks, there are no viruses. You only risk getting addicted to this AWESOMLY AWESOME game.

P.S.: If you are one of those Atari ST [CENSORED] spies, then go to [CENSORED], you [CENSORED] [CENSORED] [CENSORED] [CENSORED]!

Nice tilemap! Can you also make a png of the inside of the house? (I think i've seen a glympse on one of your gif's.)

There's a notes app on the nspire? (Or do you mean that text editor thing?)

So Wacky Fun Random Numbar Generator is  a long running gag in the TI calculator community. It's origins die in the darkness of history. Some say it was concieved at the age of the dinosaurs, some say it was the middle ages, and some say it could have even been the year 2000! At that time, was being flooded by random number generator games (you know, the ones, that pick a number between 1 and 100 and make you guess it by giving you hints). To ridiculise those "games" this masterpiece was made by the infamous Nick Disabato. You can read the launch article here: The game was since ported to almost every platform imaginable, except the Amiga. But fear not, for I shall bring you this crappy port!
This game is NOT supposed to be good. It's supposed to be even worse than a number guessing game. That's the joke. I think it falls into the same category as Sanic the Hegehog.

Nice! How portable is this code? (I suppose, it's not really possible to convert it easily to 68k?)

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but thart's very unlikely to happen on a platform, where simply getting the compiler to run is almost black magic. Besides, it's also quite hard to come up with an original concept for a game, you know.

General Calculator Help / Re: I bought the wrong cable, can I still use it?
« on: November 26, 2018, 03:58:03 pm »
I honestly doubt, that it will work with psiwin ti connect. My silverlink usb cable has got some weird electronic stuff on the inside, so it probably does some conversion. But fear not, because not everything is lost: if you manage to make your usb port appear as a COM port (aka serial port), your adapter might be similar enough to a "5$ link" or "directlink" cable to work with TILP (an open-source ti calculator linking program - you can find it on Good luck! ;)

TI Calculators / Re: nSpire video game ideas
« on: October 13, 2018, 02:33:33 pm »
Most of the games on your i recognise list seem to be in 3d. That doesn't really help, since the nspire doesn't have any hw acceleration for that kind of stuff. Also, c/asm programming on the nspire isn't the easiest task, since the sdk is really hard to set up (belive me, i tried, i got many people on this forum to help me, and in the end i didn't even manage to compile a simple helloworld program).
Regarding block dude, you're in luck! There's one somewhere on ticalc, it's only flaw being the absence of the password feature.

Looks nice! Where's the anachronistic stuff?

I know, but gtc was for AMS(ti-os).
besides, the nspire screen is smaller than the v200/92(p). I imagine it could be quite hard to see your code on your nspire. (Unless sombody manages to use a usb graphics card with it.  :P)

That's really nice! But you definitely need to resize those icon in dillo! It would be much easier to use.
Bit unrelated: It's quite sad, that Punix never got finished... Maybe we could have gotten something simillar for the 68k platform (which is WAAYYY better than the nspire in terms of programming - there is even a on-calc c compiler for it!). :(

TI-BASIC / Pure TI-BASIC Greyscale

Hi folks!
Today I managed to display some pictures in greyscale on my voyage 200 (though this should work on the other models too.)!
I made the picvars with iStudio2. Beware! This does not work on the emulator! It's intended for the real thing! That's why i was unable to get any screenshots.
