@khiconmtv:
There are 2 ways to get the 'bootcx.img':
  a. Get it from a friend.
  b. Have the actual machine and use 'polydumper' as linked above by 'Levak'
Keep looking and asking people and ultimately i'm sure you'll manage it. Please be patient...
You should have no problems with the monochrome version though! boot1.img is easier to find.
I'm sorry but as it is copyrighted material i'm not allowed to distribute it.

@Levak:
Thanks mate for all the support.

@DG_O:
I'm afraid it's just a simple starter GIF-tool. It only merges a collection of manually-captured GIF frames into a single animatedGIF.
Of course, this can be much improved but is not a high priority thing todo. I just thought i should do something in that direction and improve it in the future.
The basics are in place, the rest is a matter of free-time...which nowadays is more and more scarce.

About kArmTI:
At this stage i'm releasing it to the crowd for bug hunting (and there are certainly quite a few).
As all of you developers know, this type of project is never finished. This huge ti user community seems to me to be a good place to carry out testing.
I'll be waiting to hear from some users and then try to correct the bugs. I've already done quite a bit and i'm willing to keep doing so for sometime.

Cheers,
SpiroH

Just create it by your own using command line
Code: [Select]
nspire_emu.exe /1=boot1.img.tns /MXC /PO=os_cxcas.tcc
Then when the OS is installed use File > save flash.

And run it with
Code: [Select]
nspire_emu.exe /1=boot1.img.tns /F=31CXCAS.rom /N
You can get your boot1 using polydumper :

I haved boot1.img.tns from polydumper.

But... not run... :(

You have to remove the .tns extension from the end of the img file.

Also very nice job with the gui!  :D

@khiconmtv
Color CX (CAS) requires as a minimum nspire_emu v0.60! and i think you are using v0.53 which doesn't support cx!
look here:
http://ourl.ca/9360;msg=225577
and download v0.60.
And also here
http://ourl.ca/9360;msg=225781
for further argument details.

Hope you succeed!

nspire_emu.exe /1=boot1.img.tns /MXC /PO=os_cxcas.tcc
You also need to preload the boot2 (/PB=boot2.img.tns).

I'm pretty sure you can't have the .tns extension at the end of the image file.

@Goplat: I did it fine without Boot 2.

@SpiroH: I tried it out and it looks really nice! The only thing is that the skin is bumped down quite a bit from the emulator itself so I can't access the bottom rows of keys (v,w,x,y,z).

Thanks. Never happened to me. I'll check it out.
How are you starting the application? Via command line?
Please try the 'Boot Options' dialog and report.

I always start kArmTI using the BootOptions (File menu) dialog, i just forgot about the cmdline. Maybe that's the cause.

Great! Is that the complete picture? It seems the bottom row is missing. Can you please confirm it?

Also you don't need the command line, try the BootOptions instead.

Cheers,

Oh. I guess the screenshot looks incomplete, but you do notice there is a gap between the keypad and the actual screen thingy. Yes there is something actually cut off.  :)

It's rather late for me, i must go to bed. I'll check it tomorrow on an xp machine. It should be simple to fix. ;)
Anyway thanks.

@cyanophycean314: This is how it looks in my xp: http://www.filedropper.com/xptry
As you can see, I get no clipping! However, I have not tested this thouroughly under Xp. I know that you’ll get some misalignment problems (under Xp) when using the external console and display windows (vista's fault!).
This implies OS detection and I do not use Xp much these days, specially with graphics stuff. So I guess I'll wait for some more feedback and then try to sort things out later.

@khiconmtv: If you mean the full skin pictures, I'm not going to do it.
The clickpad keypads skins are already included in kArmTI, though ;).
