By the way, has anyone heard of that old Apple II prank where the letters on your screen would fall and people would complain to technical support that their 'computers were melting'? I've made a simple version of that with a homescreen hook :D

Okay, now that sounds cool, Deep Thought. I'd like to see a screenshot of that.

Someone should also make the Cookie Monster Virus: It was a virus for old computers that would say "GIVE ME A COOKIE" and relentlessly ask until you typed "COOKIE" at the prompt. Maybe, for that devastating X-1 virus, it could do that instead of crashing your calc.

Sorry, I just realized I lost it last time I corrupted my archive :-\

Anybody know what that worm was called, though?

That would be pretty epic, actually...like that as a password program or something :P

My TI-94+SE is broken.  I used some flawed existential conditioning on it, and it crashed. :(

Activity level:
{====______}

Spoiler For Securite:
{=========_}

A couple security flaws
Need a good backdoor short of reinstalling the OS
Completely immobilized and invalidated by Zstart. And rendered incompatible.
Spoiler For FFTATIA:
{====______}

framework: mostly done
graphics engine: undergoing complete rewrite
still need character and enemy sprites!!! :P

I've often wondered, is there a way to get the OS version (BOOT code) and/or hardware type (83pbe, 84pse, etc.)
I've noticed it in some of the tokens, but I'm pretty sure there's a port or something.

I tend to avoid fake reset programs, because I heard there was one that actually resetted the calc for real. <_<
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I believe bcall(GetSysInfo) returns the system information.
You could use
L1Asm((whatever the hex code is for bcall)DD05)
and the boot code would be in {L1} and {L1 + 1}, and the calculator ID in {L1 + 2}
Ninja vs. Chuck Norris == n/0. Both end with the world blowing up.

The hex code for bcall is EF.

If you include the line
Code: [Select]
:Archive "prgm!"it will freeze your calc until you remove the batteries, hold clear, re-insert and clear all memory. IDK if it counts as a funny program, but it is weird.
WARNING: I highly recommend you don't run this, it can be tedious to fix.

EDIT: I'm sorry about the necroposting :( this was before I discovered the "New Posts" button XD
