I think it has to do with RAM page access being slightly different on newer TI-84+SE calcs. If you're gonna buy one from ebay, you should ask the seller first what's the letter at the end of the serial number, to make sure.

Also the TI-Nspire 84+ mode is pretty much a TI-84+ emulator. Emulation is not 100% perfect. Running another emulator inside that emulator is a challenge.

Check the last letter of the serial code? What letter should it be for a good one?
If I were to buy a new one, how can I make sure it's a good kind?

This lists all versions that works, might/might not work or will not work. I think I'll copy this post in a lonely thread, which Calc84 can edit when needed, as reference.

Before buying a new calc on Ebay, message the seller and ask him for that letter. You cannot do this at a store, though. At a store it's most likely new stock anyway.

Can you help me? It's my first time here so I'm not a calculator genius, But I have a some what knowledge of calculators. Ok, so I have a TI-84 Plus graphing calculator. I've converted my .gb file so it's now .8xk. When I try to transfer to my calculator, it says that I don'
t have enough memory to continue, even though I wiped out all my RAM D:. I've gone to 2ND - Mem- And 7. Reset, Then reset all. Btw, I got my calculator like over the summer so I'm not sure if it's because it's a newer model.

a .8xk is an application, which resides in your calculator's archive. You don't have enough archive space (2nd - Mem - 2, look at ARC FREE) for the file so you'll have to delete some applications off of it.

Game files are incredibly huge so you'll have to clear a lot of space off for them. It's even possible, being a regular 84+, that you don't even HAVE enough space for certain games  :(

I have 24317 RAM Free and 491520 ARC Free :D, If that is not enough, is there a possible way I can shorten the .gb file?

How big is the file you're trying to send over? If it's larger than your 491,520 bytes (480KB I guess?), it's not gonna fit without more free ARC space.

Well the file is 2.48 mb D: 2,603,195 bytes. xP, I think that's too much D:.

Yeah.... that's just a tad too much for a regular 84+. Out of curiosity, just what were you intending to port to TI-84+?

Ah, Pokemon Red. Good game. Sadly, according to TI's site specs, the Silver Edition only has about half that in Archive space (about 1.5 MB) so that's still a no-go.

However, if you're willing to wait an indefinite amount of time, our good pal tifreak8x is working on his own BASIC-with-some-ASM port of the first generation Pokemon games called "Pokemon Purple".
