Darn it, I must have confused it with that OS I dissected.

320 × 200, 16 colors, sprites, raster interrupt. 16 colors could fit into the greyscale easily.

Wow more and more reasons to get an Nspire... This being one of them.

Well, assuming somebody actually makes the emulator ;)

Somebody should make a decent TI-83+ emulator first.

DrDnar there was one in the works, I even have a copy on my computer (using a 83+ ROM).

However calc84maniac lost the entire source code of all his TI-Nspire projects last Summer, after his laptop hard drive failed.

It would be nice to see a C64 emu and of course a decent 83+ emu, though.

That's one reason why it's always good to  back up  programs

However,  losing the code to a program  can sometimes be a  blessing  in disguise. I lost the code for my original  Jack  Game, but eventually I got over the "What a pain to  make another" feeling and made one ten times better.

Yeah since that incident I keep reminding people here to backup. Calc84maniac had all his 83+ projects backed up on a flash drive, but not the TI-Nspire stuff.

I own nearly 20 computers  so I've got just about  everything  backed up on  something.

Wow that's a lot! O.O

Personally I backup stuff online, password protected in zip archives, on my two hard drives and sometimes a flash drive.

[offtopic]@GB 20? Holy crap man!  O.O What in the world do you use all of those computers for? Are some of them retro or are you running them as servers or something? [/offtopic]

I guess a C64 emulator would be cool, but most people are probably more interested/familiar in emulating older gaming consoles instead NES, gameboy(color), SNES, Genisis, etc. (not that you can't use the C64 for gaming...). If one were to be made it would probably have to be someone who was a big C64 fan. :) Also, I'm not entirely sure, but didn't the C64 support a couple of resolution modes higher than 320 X 200?

There is in fact a type of C64 which does have games and cartridges.

It was UK only and not very popular. I want the original.
