- Video recording, not just screenshoting/assembling into gif, but real video recording into a avi file for example (this one is going to be hard :P)
Actually, is not that hard. ;) I've done it before, so it's just a matter of some free time (which i don't have a lot to spare nowadays). But otoh, please tell me if you don't mind, are you willing to deal with huge (several 100MB) files? or do you have something else in the back of your mind? Cheers.
What do you mean by "several huge files" ? Are those temporary files or final files ? If they are temporary I don't mind at all. And if you mean that the final video file is going to be huge, that is not a problem either :)
In fact I thought about it because people making awesome games (Chockosta's nCraft) may want to make videos to showcase their work ;)

One of the main factors for file size is how many frames are taken per second. In the end, they would be 100 MB or more. But if you don't mind, videos of people's work would be really fun to watch  :D

 Is possible that the emulator receives signals from the laboratory (labcradle) or RS232 protocol?

It is not possible, as the emulator does not communicate with real devices.

The Emu48 emulator has a file that emulates serial, infrared and printer port, thus can communicate with real devices, then you can also emulate the I/O ports of the nspire?

On request from some users :D i've decided to include an AVI facility into kArmTI to record some short video clips. I won't go much into details right now, but will simply say some essentials about kArmTI_v1.31
1. Some minor glitches in v1.30 were corrected.
2. This is a very simple AVI tool still in a beta stage for evaluation (i've just made it!).
3. Below are the steps to make a short avi video clip:
    3.1 The tool becomes available from the Extra Display Popup menu
   
    3.2 Before making a clip, select the Capture Options dialog to specify the output file path and the desired sampling rate (frames per second).
   
    3.3 When ready you may start avi recording, selecting 'AVI Capture Start' from this point in time onwards (at this stage) you won't get any feedback. So pay attention to your clock not to fill up the harddisk with a 2GB file!
        Before the actual capture starts you're prompted to select a video compressor codec (i strongly advise you to select one to reduce the video filesize). In the following picture, i've chosen 'Cinepak Codec'.
   
    3.4 To Stop the Capture, select 'AVI Capture Stop' and you're done.
Below is a sample video clip, i've made with fps set to 20 that lasts for 1m 12s and creates a 23.2MB avi file (not too large).
Yeah, the player is the Media Player Classic - Home Cinema (GPL) you may find here: http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/
   
Experiment with it and leave some feedback. Hope you like it.

Edit:
I've improved a bit the AVI Capture Options Dlg. I guess it's handy.

Added a Max Record Time (MRT) field. Recording stops automatically when the MRT limit is reached (it should not go beyond 30minutes!).
Also, do not use a fps higher than 25 (no need for it either), because frames start being missed. In my system it works fine with fps=25 tho.

Hey SpiroH,
a new version of nspire emu released. Would you kindly port it in your kArmTI?

fhub, your comments were provocative, which is discouraged here on the forums. Please be helpful or mods will take necessary action (such as locking the thread and/or banning people).

Well, it wasn't that provocative, but still some people took it as provocative, the one after didn't helped much. You were indeed daring, but here you must be pretty careful here, some people aren't as daring as you. We welcome different opinions, but the key is to present them in a nice and helpful way.

And in some cases, what you thought was a multiplication might be in fact only an addition ( (-)+(-) = (-) ), so be careful.

You're allowed to say your opinion, but you have to be careful with how you present it.

And now I feel like I have the 2 bare feet in the mud. -_- Oh well forget it, it's just a friendly warning and a possible explanation of all your downvotes. Here on Omnimaga we try to make your experience as nice as possible.

EDIT: Also another reminder, double-posting in such a short laps of time is discouraged, there's the Modify button for that.

LOL, good joke! :P

You're still not helping. (That can provoke a fight (which are totally unwelcome).)

EDIT: Hey we're getting offtopic and this is getting nowhere, can we close that train of thought and go back to discussing the emulator? Thanks.

Most likely, unless he's just busy or taking a break from here. Sadly it might be too late, which is why in the future I would like to encourage members to use the "Report to moderator" link at the bottom of offensive posts if they want something done as fast as possible. Otherwise with school and work, moderators might easily miss drama or see it too late.


Question: Does this emu supports frame by frame emulation with rewinding without breaking animated screen capture? With debugging alongside this, that could be useful if in the future there are people who wanted to make tool assisted speedruns or test their games limits to spot glitches.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I got an idea. I am not sure how feasible it is, but it would make everyone happy if that could work since SpiroH could keep it work closed source and people could still benefit from the latest updates from nspire_emu :D

So, would it be possible to have kArmTI be only an interface that loads an external nspire_emu or something like that ?

Thanks, wish you a merry Christmas too.
Maybe you can play gpSP now on the emulator of your choice. ;)
