Calling Brave Axe Warriors!
« on: June 19, 2010, 03:02:56 am »
I've finished the compiling to applications feature and I need a few people to help me do some more extensive testing.  When I release the next version, which I think will be tomorrow night, application compiling will not be included, but I will also have an identical version with app compiling that I will give to a selected few.

Conditions:
  • I've already tested this on an emulator, so I need this tested on real hardware (especially non-83+SEs).
  • I need persons who will use this feature regularly.
  • You should not have anything important in ram OR rom!  Its very possible to corrupt rom if my routine is buggy.  You may have to do a full rom clear to restore your calculator back to normal or even resend the OS so backups are mandatory!
  • You should not share this version of Axe with anyone because I don't want to be liable for any of the possibilities above.

Although it might sounds dangerous, it should be physically impossible to brick your calculator becasue I'm only using one routine to write to flash and it explicitly checks to make sure it does not accidentally write to the certificate page, which means the worst case scenario be that you have to resend the OS.  I haven't had any problems at all with the feature so far and have never needed to do any of that, so its unlikely I made any critical mistakes, but that's what I need to confirm before I make this feature public.

So any volunteers?  :P

Hmm, I wonder if it signs apps on-calc, too.

Oooh Oooh Me Me Me! I would love this!  Especially because I am already running out of space for Portal :P and this would prevent me from having to do crazy page switching.  I'll need to back up all my stuff tho o.O just in case

Hey, speaking of which, while we're in the business of passing out closed betas, how's Portal X coming, BuilderBoy? ;)

Its actually fine if you have an 83+SE, that's just the emulator I'm using.  Optimally I would pick one person from each category of 83+, 83+SE, 84+, and 84+SE.

Although I probably could sign on-calc, I don't want to.  Its too crazy for what its worth.  I'm hoping apps can be sent to the computer and signed there (something that will be tested in this trial).

Oh, cool, then I'd love to be the 83+SE guy. My RPG is already getting awfully close to that 8k limit, so I'd like to give this a go.

If I was a more advanced programmer and actually had projects and such I would love to test this. I wish you guys luck on your testing (to who ever gets to test).

Has no one offered to test on a 83+?
If no one does, I'd be glad to try it, but I'm not sure how regularly I'd use it, so I don't know if I'd be a prime candidate.


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

Would a TI-Nspire do?

I also got my 83+ but it has full of stuff on it I'm using regulary.
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

Can we have the on-calc signing? I'm not really sure what the advantage of compiling on-calc is when you can't even finish the job...
