Ti-boy very confused need help please Ti-84+ silver
« on: August 31, 2009, 02:51:28 am »
ok, so, I am switching calculators with my brother because his is like 2 years old and it workings with the game boy emulator.

My question is can I upgrade the old calculator that plays the game boy emulators from 2.40 to 2.43 or will that ruin it?

sorry for duplication, but the other posts don't matter anymore.

I want the update because the older calculator seems to have a screen that is some what green. I want to see if the updates will change that.

Welcome on the forums, but please do not repost the same post over and over again. This is a forum, not a chat, and I doubt anyone will awnser at 2:58 AM when they have school at 8 AM the morning afterward. When people get online next evening, they would have saw your post, anyway, since they're marked as new post. I deleted your 2 double posts made at 3:28 and 4:48 AM and moved the first in TI-Boy SE section.

As for OS update, I doubt upgrading would cause problems, altough I am not certainly sure of what OS in particular this emulator supports. Someone else might know more about the compatibilities issues (if any)

Yeah, OS shouldn't be an issue at all. Just hardware revision.

kk, so I upgraded my calculator and nothing really changed. The letters are still not that bold, not as nice, and the screen is greenish.

I am wondering if I switched out the sreen from the new calculator to the old would this fix the problem?

Also, some games are kind of fussy is there anyway to make the game look better?

It's almost impossible to change screens if you are not used to do electronic stuff

for the screenfuss, download http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/366/36608.html , upload it to your calc, and run it in Mirage
That probably helps

Has anyone gotten a game to look as good on a calculator as if played on a gameboy emulator, because any games that work look no where near as good if played on the gameboy emulator.

The calculator's screen is 96x64 pixels and is emulating a Game Boy that has a screen size of 160x144 pixels, so it will never perfectly emulate a Game Boy (but it's pretty damn close :D)

Yeah, in TI-Boy SE, when you want to see the entire screen of the gameboy, things are shrinked to like half their normal size. As a result, it sometimes looks very ugly. However, in the readme, there are instructions on how to set it at 100% size, in which case you won't see everything at once, though.

How did everyone get link to fit in the calculator? Did you guys delete all of the apps on the calculator that were already installed?

do you have a regular 84+ or a Silver Edition?

I would definitely delete the ones in different languages if you still have them. Link's Awakening only takes up a little more than a third of the Silver Edition's capacity (make sure you have the black & white version)
