Oops mistake yes i meant UTI and not here,and by TIBD I assume you mean TI-BASIC developper, right?

by hex built do u mean it will be for asm programs  as well or just compressed like tifreak8x sprites in Pok

By 'hex' I mean actual hex strings, that you can use with a hex-to-sprite converter or DCS.

Although, I guess you could use them compressed like that.

And by TI|BD, yes, I do mean TI Basic Developer.

I think there most asm programmers would like the sprite to hex function built in.
However, unless you are trying to save memory, it doesn't hold as much value to a Basic programmer do to the need to convert the hex back into binary.
I suppose you could have the 16 possible hex combinations hard coded into a program that way all that has to be done is display the sprite line by line.

For example, if you had D3 (1101) as a hex code, you could have a sort of lookup table to tell the program what pixels to turn on.

If Ans="D"
Then
pixelOn(X,Y
pixelOn(X+1,Y
pixelOn(X+3,Y
End

This would be the fastest way, but obviously the most memory consuming as well.

No, I have on hand a hex to binary converter I can use to convert hexcode directly to a matrix, then render it normally from there.

Just curious, how does Artistic handle plugins? Does it just get the program name, verify it is there, and make a call in the program. Or does it actually copy the plugin into the main program?
There are 10 types of people in this world-- those that can read binary, and those that can't.

When you 'install' a plugin, it takes its name and stores it into a hidden config file.  When it says it's loading plugins when starting, it's really documenting all the plugin names and sticking them in a string.  When you run one, it's going to hand complete control to the plugin.

That's sort of what Implicit does.
I use xLIB to copy the plugin to a temporary program so it can be run.

Do you use Celtic to run the plugin?

I'm not sure if it is progressing, as the last update was on Metroid Pi II, but this update was also a while ago. He seems pretty busy atm x.x

 O_Oshocked2.gif  BUGGER! Though, oncerning MPII, I'm not sure I really care that much. If its anything like the original it will just crash.  :(sad.gif

mhmm it is weird that the original even crashed at all. You must have an issue with your calculator hardware, because pure TI-BASIC programs cannot crash a calculator.

It can, but only if you really intend it too ;)wink.gifc1-->
CODE
ec1:999→dim(L1
:Ans→dim(L2
:While 1
:Disp "HAHAHAHAHAHA!
:SortA(L1,L2
:SortD(L2,L1
:Endc2
ec2

Yeah, I don't know if this will ever get worked on again, Metroid Pi2 is getting rather fun to code ATM.

@arglactable: What do you mean by "crashed"?  A RAM Clear, or an error?

Well, I suppose "Crash" would be an improper term, my previous calculator (which I believe was faulty and returned to the store a week or two ago) actually did crash, causing unexplainable missing files, though not only from MP. Now, on my present calc, it just closes without warning as soon as I get the shock beam. No error messages are displayed. BTW, the original artistic is awesome...

Thanks!

Hm...that is really weird...I don't know.  It might be because you don't have the most recent version (although I don't know which site has which).  Check UTI's archive for it, chances are that's the most recent version.

well, I tried that and I got Idiotic Error number 2. Err: Memory. Also, the first time I tried to ungroup it, I had to reset my RAM to get some of my files back. So, it still doesn't work.

EDIT: I thought that I might not have enough RAM after reading the README; it said I needed 5k to run it. I tried again (with over 6k) and still got the same error.
