8086tiny
« on: September 23, 2014, 12:32:46 pm »
Would it be possible to port 8086tiny (http://www.megalith.co.uk/8086tiny/) to the Nspire? (sorry if this isn't the right place for this thread)

Yes, i think so, and it would be an interesting project to play with. Apparently, all it requires is SDL support (and even that is an option). SDL has already been ported to Nspire long time ago by Hoffa.
Of course audio won't be available, but that's common to all SDL apps that have been ported to Nspire, so far.
Why don't you dare to give it a go? ;)

I'd also say yea. Looks plausible.

One problem though is that it only uses SDL for the graphics output, it uses the console for text output.

I'm sure it's been asked before, but would it be possible to port DOSBox to the Nspire?

It's been asked quite a few times before, the answer was, if I remember correctly, no.

8086tiny is a good idea though, since it's already ported on ARM. Rule of thumb: if it was already ported on the Raspberry Pi, it should be possible on the Nspire.

When I tried compiling it, it gave me some errors, but I didn't understand them, could someone who knows about ndless development try compiling it? (Also, DOSBox has be ported to the RasPi, so by your rule...)

I did my bit of research after I posted this and yeah, there's versions of DOSBox for Android and Raspberry Pi, so yeah I guess one could try with an ARM-optimized fork. You could also try with Nspire Linux as well.

I tried running 8086tiny on Nspire Linux and it never booted up :(

8086tiny would be interesting to port to the Nspire. I know an old Mac OS got ported and it ran well. It would also be interesting to see what program could be ran with 8086tiny. :)

You could run Windows 3, which would be pretty interesting.

Yeah the thing is that I never used it enough to remember what games can be played. I wonder if it could run stuff like old DOS games, such as Ultima series?

Ok good to hear. It would definitively expand the TI-Nspire library :D
