I assume that level8 is a tool to compile calc pics with 8 shades of gray?

Welcome back to Omni pimathbrainiac by the way :)

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 made it because I had bad side-by-side assemblies
What are these ? I guess that's a Windoze related thing. I never went deep with this crappy OS. :P

Also thepenguin, just to make sure : did you see my post saying that now the patch installs fine but doesn't run anything on RAM clear ?

SxS is a Windows feature that allows multiple versions of the same software to be installed without interfering with each other, thereby allowing applications that expect incompatible versions of a library to be installed to co-exist peacefully. It's largely automatically, and works quite well for most applications. Unfortunately, Windows doesn't really provide an end-user GUI for configuring SxS, instead relying on built-in logic and programmer thoughtfulness to make it function. Consequently, if it does make a mistake, cleaning up is not easy.
"No tools will make a man a skilled workman, or master of defense, nor be of any use to him who has not learned how to handle them, and has never bestowed any attention upon them. . . . Yes, [] the tools which would teach men their own use would be beyond price."—Plato's The Republic, circa 380 BC

Oops, I'll fix this soon. I should probably add this thread to my watched list.

You can build a statue out of either 1'x1' blocks or 12'x12' blocks. The 1'x1' blocks will take a lot longer, but the final product is worth it.

This, and zStart seems to make Axe crash more often. I think that's come from the RAM usage...

Feature request: when editing archived programs, they don't get rewritten back to archive if nothing is changed.

Bug report: launching an application from the Omnicalc quick apps menu doesn't register the context switch, resulting any temporary edit copy of archived programs hanging around until the application exits. As the issue occurs under Omnicalc's control, I'll understand if this isn't really fixable, though. It's not a fatal flaw anyways.

The first one seems really easy and obvious.

The second, will probably be a little tough, but I'll try to figure out how it works.

Oh sorry I forgot to reply. :P It works perfectly now. :)

Edit : Nope, the patch doesn't do anything. It installs fine but nothing happens on RAM clears. D:

I have the same results. zStart 1.3.012's run on RAM clear functionality doesn't seem to work, at least on Wabbitemu (OS 2.55; older versions work fine).

I also come bearing other gifts:

Bug reports:
  • When MathPrint is enabled, any of the shortcut key actions used from a menu eject control back to the home screen.
  • When uninstalling the run on RAM clear functionality finishes, "No" is printed over "Yes". But no erasing is done, so you end up with "Nos". A simple fix for this would be to append a 3-wide space (character code $EE (could a small font hook with a wider "s" ruin this fix?)) to the end of the "No" string.
  • The "Select font" option sometimes says "No" when no font is selected, but other times is just blank. I suspect that one of these behaviors is a bug. If showing the string "No" was the intended behavior, may I suggest a slightly more fitting string, like "None"?

Bug report/feature request hybrids:
  • Shortcut key actions do not work in contexts other than the home screen. This includes menus launched from these contexts.
  • A common, minor oversight of many programs/apps: if you use plotSScreen, you should mark it as dirty with set graphDraw,(iy+graphFlags).

Feature requests:
  • A negative feature: remove the confirmation on setting shortcuts? I don't think I've ever accidentally hit any of those shortcuts, so the confirmation seems a bit unnecessary to me. If you do want to keep them in, though, it wouldn't bother me much. But if you do, can you display some text between "Confirm" and "Set" (perhaps "Working..." or "Setting...")? On my calculator, the option setting/saving process takes about 4 seconds. It may take a non-trivial amount of time on others' calculators as well, and during this time, the calculator appears frozen.
  • A shortcut to toggle MathPrint.
  • Here's a big (code size-wise) one that probably isn't super important, but would be neat if it existed: instead of having individual options to control a few defaults, include an option that saves basically all settings as defaults (everything currently available and everything in MODE). If you were crazy enough to add this, you might also be crazy enough to be interested in adding a second option that does the same for the WINDOW and FORMAT settings.

I think that this is more in case you opened the "prgm" menu to look for a program, then think "lulz me stupid, I have set a shortcut for that one" then you try and do the shortcut without quitting the "prgm" menu (That already happened to me, and I really thought "lulz me stupid, I have set a shortcut for that one" afterwards).

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.

How far are you with the update? TI 84+ SE won't install the ram clear hoook, although it says success.
