TI-Nspire / kArmTI - TI-Nspire emulator with skin
« on: May 28, 2012, 06:26:45 pm »
But the best of all would be if you could create a 'real image' like for your kArmTI, but with a format as in SpiroH 0.90, so that it would also work for 1024x600 netbooks.
Maybe it would be possible to cut the real Nspire CX picture and put the lower part (with the numeric and alpha-keyboard) to the right side, i.e. to make a 'horizontal' Nspire CX!?
Hi Franz,

Do you mean something like this:

Thinking+Working on it! You may add some input if you like:-\.

could it be that the Install.bat does not support 64bit systems? i get an error when i try to run it xs
I would simply say that i've developed both apps 'kArmTI' + 'SpiroH' on a 64-bit Win7 system.
I'm afraid i can't help you right now with the .bat file.

Would be great indeed ... :)
I'm taking note of the all the things that require improvement, to fix (at least some) as soon as
i have some more time. Right now is a specially akward time, as we are going thru the examinations period.

In meantime i'm all ears,

Well, yesterday I've worked quite hard to get all this Nspire stuff running.
Happy Nspiring, ;-)
This is really a great contribution for starters. I'm speechless.
Some months ago i was also out there googling/hunting, but to no avail. Ultimately some kind soul (which i won't name here) has kindly helped me.
So, as i've been there myself, i can feel the relief. Now you've made it so much easier. On behalf of the future Nspiring-newbies MANY thanks.
Let's make it easier for the poor (i mean empty pocket) souls try/do/learn some maths, universal asset after all, which some are using to become far-too-rich.

First off, many thanks for your kind remarks! i really appreciate them!

I'll try to answer some your queries:
1) SpiroH:
(not a very inspirational name, but that's how i started the program and then it stayed like that..):
The basic idea was: KISS: ("kiss it simple sir (or stupid)" ). I was a bit fed-up of the hard work with the skins. That's how the idea came up to my mind.
a) - The command-line business should to be easy enough to fix. I'll look into it asap.
b) - I'm afraid i did not test (nor targeted to be honest...) this thoroughly under xp.
If get many compaints i'll surely do it. Mind you, i also think Xp it is the best M$'s OS to date. Bloated vista has too many useless spy and slow-down processes...
c) - The fonts are "Segoe UI" and  "Segoe UI Symbol". Grab them from a vista/win7 machine and you should be fine.

2) KArmTI:
That's the a glitch i've also noticed, but did not YET dig into it sufficiently.
Yeah, i also work* (besides this hobby...) Maybe my coming holidays will help put an end to it!

Final note:  I've just released this stuff for the first time to the crowds, so they are bound to have glitches... I'm already quite happy some people are finding 'some use for it'.

If you're a german guy (Franz!?) "Vielen Dank für Ihre wertvollen Hinweise und bis bald...", if not 'never mind'.

*Actually, I'm a teacher and i'm doing some exams at this very moment.

Nice skins. They give a little work (at first) and some people do really enjoy it a lot! ;)

Now, on another note w/o skins, i'm presenting yet another take (yeah!) on the light-gui for nspire_emu .

(this is very similar to SpiroH_v081. my previous post(s): )

This new layout has all (i hope!) the CX keys, and is much shorter...

Maybe some of you will find use for it. For example, it should fit inside any netbook's lcd like my old eeepc (1024x600), whereas the previous one doesn't.

My new skin...
Now i see your point. Your skin has much better contrast. I do agree!
AND of course you have fixed your notebook's vertical resolution limitation. :)

That's why i've also provided a SkinEditor to customize the looks :crazy:.

@cyanophycean314: This is how it looks in my xp:
As you can see, I get no clipping! However, I have not tested this thouroughly under Xp. I know that you’ll get some misalignment problems (under Xp) when using the external console and display windows (vista's fault!).
This implies OS detection and I do not use Xp much these days, specially with graphics stuff. So I guess I'll wait for some more feedback and then try to sort things out later.

@khiconmtv: If you mean the full skin pictures, I'm not going to do it.
The clickpad keypads skins are already included in kArmTI, though ;).

Oh. I guess the screenshot looks incomplete, but you do notice there is a gap between the keypad and the actual screen thingy. Yes there is something actually cut off.  :)
It's rather late for me, i must go to bed. I'll check it tomorrow on an xp machine. It should be simple to fix. ;)
Anyway thanks.

Thanks all... :)
I used command "nspire_emu /1=boot1cx.raw /MXC /PB=boot2cx.img  /PO=os.tcc"

Great! Is that the complete picture? It seems the bottom row is missing. Can you please confirm it?

Also you don't need the command line, try the BootOptions instead.

@SpiroH: I tried it out and it looks really nice! The only thing is that the skin is bumped down quite a bit from the emulator itself so I can't access the bottom rows of keys (v,w,x,y,z).
Thanks. Never happened to me. I'll check it out.
How are you starting the application? Via command line?
Please try the 'Boot Options' dialog and report.

I always start kArmTI using the BootOptions (File menu) dialog, i just forgot about the cmdline. Maybe that's the cause.

Color CX (CAS) requires as a minimum nspire_emu v0.60! and i think you are using v0.53 which doesn't support cx!
look here:;msg=225577
and download v0.60.
And also here;msg=225781
for further argument details.

Hope you succeed!

There are 2 ways to get the 'bootcx.img':
  a. Get it from a friend.
  b. Have the actual machine and use 'polydumper' as linked above by 'Levak'
Keep looking and asking people and ultimately i'm sure you'll manage it. Please be patient...
You should have no problems with the monochrome version though! boot1.img is easier to find.
I'm sorry but as it is copyrighted material i'm not allowed to distribute it.

Thanks mate for all the support.

I'm afraid it's just a simple starter GIF-tool. It only merges a collection of manually-captured GIF frames into a single animatedGIF.
Of course, this can be much improved but is not a high priority thing todo. I just thought i should do something in that direction and improve it in the future.
The basics are in place, the rest is a matter of free-time...which nowadays is more and more scarce.

About kArmTI:
At this stage i'm releasing it to the crowd for bug hunting (and there are certainly quite a few).
As all of you developers know, this type of project is never finished. This huge ti user community seems to me to be a good place to carry out testing.
I'll be waiting to hear from some users and then try to correct the bugs. I've already done quite a bit and i'm willing to keep doing so for sometime.

Hi,its me again.
Now I'm presenting a new version for the gui, a bit more bloated than the previous one (SpiroH_v081),
which I've named 'kArmTI' (kArma-TI) with the following features:

1. Boot Options: supports several calculators monochrome + colour
2. Keypad skins for Touchpad + Clickpad
3. Debug Console
4. Extra display with zoom
5. Simple Animated GIF tool


Hope some of you (at least) will like it and will post some feeback.

Executable + skins + skineditor:
Some 'raw' overview screen-shots:

BUG correction: Please use the new download!

The new executable v0.81 is here:

I've also replaced the key 'w' by the 'comma' which is harder to map for all keyboard layouts.
This version is aimed mostly at noob users (around 97% ??), which only need a 'cheap' means to use the calculator.
I plan to add the debugger + maybe some skins, when i can find some spare time.
Until next time.

Hi, this thread has been sort of dead. Let's shake it up a bit. So What?
(I can't insert the image inline! why is that?)
This is a different GUI for the ti-nspire emulator made by Goplat.
It is capable of emulating the CX and CX cas versions (ONLY!)

Some features:
1. Simple to use: Provide the cx boot image(s) + the flashrom(s) and off you go.
2. Simple onscreen keyboard, almost matching the real devices.
(Most of alpha-keys are left-out, but you can always use the keyboard).
3. Light: No debugger, only a simple logger. So no real nspire-programming is expected (yet?).

If you try it, please leave some feedback here. Maybe i'll improve it in the my coming holidays.

The executable + some screen shots are here:

EDIT1: (20July12)
As some of you know, this topic has as of the 17July2012 been split from its parent thread Ti-Nspire Emulator. That's the main reason why this first post appears as coming out of nowhere (the blue) ??? .

To help out new users reading this topic, so that they can have a faster access to the current version of kArmTI and its documentation, I leave here the respective links:
    kArmTI_v1.27+SkinEditor+QuickStart Documentation
    kArmTI_v1.27 Help + Sample Skins + Sample AnimGIFs

EDIT2: (15Aug12)
   Revision kArmTI_v1.28

EDIT3: (27Aug12)
   Revision kArmTI_v1.29

EDIT4: (14Sep12)
   Revision kArmTI_v1.30

EDIT5: (07Oct12)
   Revision kArmTI_v1.31 - includes a Video Capture Tool (AVI )
   Skin Editors: SkinEditor_v1.05 and SkinEditor_v1.07
   More Skins: Skins1 and Skins2

EDIT6: (28Jan13)
About a month ago, on the 26th of Dec12, I've released a new version of kArmTI,v1.40 which implements unaligned memory transfers (UMTs) based on the new code of nspire_emu v0.70.  So far, i've not received any complaints about it, so you might as well give it a try. In principle, it allows you, for example, to run the console emulator gpSP which requires UMTs support.

EDIT7: (03Jul13): a simple preview: <11Mar16: this youtube video was removed>

EDIT8: (08Nov13) kArmTI_v1.50 - includes a 'Skins Previewer' tool, an updated html Help file and some minor cosmetic fixes.

EDIT9: (11Apr14) kArmTI v1.60 - a slightly re-designed GUI + a couple of bug-fixes.

EDIT10: (01Sep15) kArmTI v1.79   - nspire_emu v0.70's nonaligned memory accesses are re-included.

EDIT11: (11Mar16) kArmTI v1.80 (x86) - latest stable release; kArmTI v1.81 (x86) - preliminary support for the new TI-OS4.2.


Q1: kArmTI crashes and I don't see any window anymore. How do I go about it?
A1: Please delete the following registry key: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ScrapLab\kArmTI_v1.XY" 
   (where X and Y may vary, e.g. 'kArmTI_v1.07) and restart. This will restore 'defaults'.
