Hookless mode!

Basically, I just discovered that Axe steps all over Symbolic, and I'm in Accelerated Calculus (which means I need Symbolic). Would it be marginally possible to have a version of Axe that doesn't screw with tokens? (honestly, it's slightly unnerving anyway XD)

I would like to be able to use Apps as Libs, like we have ExecLib and OpenLib in BASIC!
(for use with USB8x)

everytime that I was down, you would always come around, and get my feedback on the ground. (modified part from 'Seasons in the sun')

No matter how many errors are bothering you, always try to stay rel-Axe!

The HoMM project will be resumed as soon Axe 1.0.0 will be released!

What does happens with it? Does it just changes Symbolic tokens or does it simply overwrite its hooks? That seems like something Quigibo might want to check, but again, Symbolic is so old that it might be best to not bother, not to mention both apps have no relation to each others (one is math-oriented while the other is programming-oriented).

I would like to be able to use Apps as Libs, like we have ExecLib and OpenLib in BASIC!

That might be nice, but those games would not run on the TI-83+ and TI-83+SE :(

Also how do we use OpenLib/ExecLib anyway?

There's some information about it in the USB8x documentation (that program is pretty much the only one that uses these functions...)

Ah ok. Not even one TI app does? O.o

What exactly do you mean? I haven't noticed anything and I use both Symbolic and Axe quite frequently.

EDIT: I've mentioned this before, but a Not( function would be nice. There are times when you simply have multiple conditions for a conditional and one of them happens to be negated. It'd probably save a byte to have a token implement the function versus typing in "0=" and in any case, the TI-OS token is already there for the taking.

A way to execute the BASIC-interpreter (to allow external subprograms) would be nice too, although that might be a bit unrealistic since the interpreter is probably scattered around the OS.

I wish that axe could run ASM programs that are already compiled.

Strange, maybe it's an OS/calc-specific issue?

Somebody made a "Guitar Hero" type game a while back (with, if I remember correctly, 2-bit sound), so it's not out of the question to do sound and other stuff at the same time.  It's not easy, but it can be done.

Does anybody know of a good song or song player thing that I can add so I can show this off at school?

There's also Mobiletunes over Cemetech, but I think you need to convert the songs to z80 then compile them to ASM files, so the process is a bit more complicated.

Yeah, that's the one I was thinking of.  The UTI thread is now at http://www.unitedti.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=8917 .

Ah right, 8 KHz quality. On my headphones, there was a big acute hiss. I wonder if that can be removed from such calc sound? I know the old Playwav from TCPA team and RealSound from Revsoft did that too

A couple of feature requests:

  • Allowing For( to take any mem location as a variable. For example, For({L1},0,255) would be really useful.
  • As mentioned earlier, more info in the documentation regarding how commands affect interrupts.
  • Packing subprograms called with prgm into the backup file when it's made, even if it's converted to just one big program

Also, automatically converting While 1 and Repeat 0 into endless loops would be nice, if that's not added already.
