In short, yes.

 *.* Are you telling me that a Ti83+ will be usable on my nSpire soon? This means, theoretically, I could have the entire 8x series on one calculator, and have it run so fast I can optionally set up a throttle? Make an options menu if a full fledged emulator is written!

I love you guys.
Keep trying.

The older Clickpad and Touchpad Nspire models had an interchangeable keypad and a 84+ emulation mode, though it was incomplete, inaccurate and slow.

And yes, a ZX Spectrum emulator is clearly possible on the Nspire, as TEZXAS for the TI-68k series ( http://tezxas.ticalc.org/ ) is more than a decade old, and the Nspire has higher raw power (but less programmability) than the open TI-68k series.

Then that could lead to ZX programming!

Which would be awesome to have more on-calc programming

My father BEGAN his computer career on a Timex Sinclair Z80. I can emulate one of these, can't I? I suppose that hardware emulation other than just the CPU is required, things like displays, memory mapping, storage, interfaces, and data transfer are all crucial components of any device, emulated or not. I'll have to emulate a Z80 when I get my CX CAS :)

I know that the old click/touchpad nSpires had the interchangeable 84+ keypad. My friend owned two of them because his parents were rich and bought one for his sister and one for him. His sister never used it, and he never used his either,he usually borrowed on of mine. So he just had them in his bag all the time and I messed around on them, testing compatability between certain ASM programs and Applications written for the real 84+. He wouldn't mind giving me the one that he damaged the screen on I bet, and I know people love getting help from people testing things on a clickpad! The thing was slow, and one of the worst problems it had was emulating the display. Certain graphing could actually completely f*ck the display up, IIRC. Playing games was a very dangerous thing. Though, he had a very old calculator OS on his nSpire and his 84+ was 2.44 I think.
Keep trying.

Update (same links as before).  To run, rename an 84+SE rom file to "rom.tns" and send it to the same folder as the executable.  Use the menu key to turn it on, and ret to exit.  Many things probably don't work yet.

Looks like you're making good progress :). The CX and touchpad download links 404 for me though, clickpad link works.

Great :D
Of course not everything works, but I am sure that you won't stop there and that your emulator will become a lot better than TI's ;)
Also, does (or will) it support roms created by Wabbitemu (when on Wabbitemu we do "Save...") ?
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Awesome and much-needed project! Maybe someday I can program TI-83 Plus programs on a TI-Nspire so I don't have to carry three calculators in my backpack all the time.

And then there's the inevitable: Emu8x on TI-84 Plus on TI-Nspire <_<

EDIT: ...in nspire_emu in VirtualBox

Thought: Use emulate a Gb ROM on a ti84+ emulated by a ti84+SE emulated by an nSpire on windows. :) just a thought! :P
So, that much progress has been made that quickly? :D
Keep trying.

Insert obligatory comment hoping Axe will work on it when finished. :P

Definitely keeping an eye on this :D

Looks nice so far :). And yeah hopefully this fixes all compatibility issues that TI's emulator had on clickpads.

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
