Done. Only French for now though.

You might also want to mention that zStart and MathPrint don't get along nicely if people have trouble with stuff.
Yeah, I said that. I also said that maybe complete nexcomers should avoid toying too much with options they don't know what they do.

I wouldn't worry. People are used to MathPrint not getting along with anything, ever.

It would definitively be nice to see this in Ticalc, TI-Planet and Omni archives as well. :)
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 can't make the molar mass thing work.
I have a Ti 84+ BE and 2.55MP os, with mathprint disabled.

The hex converter works, but the molar mass one doesn't.

What's up?

did you turn it on?

Do you insert ? before every calculation ie

?CuSO4

would be Copper Sulphor Tetroxide

It's a separate app. Put zChem on your calculator. Run it so that it installs. Then go into zStart, 6>4>5 and you should be good to go. (Btw, I personally love zChem).

oh thanks!

I got it working now.
With zStart, zChem, and Omnicalc, its basically a pocket PC now

*EDIT*

Could you make like a "QuickTime picture viewer" style thing for zStart, so that you could enter a photo browser by pressing a certain key sequence from the homescreen and view 8-level greyscale pics, instead of just at boot?

Well you can already do Apps/Up/Enter/2/4/2nd and then you can browse your images with left and right (works with up and down too).

oh. Duh.

now all we need is an 8 level greyscale movie player...

Wasn't there something like that made before? Some 8xk of The Matrix?

I don't know about 8 level grayscale, but thepenguin (always him when it is about grayscale) made a 4 level grayscale video player with sound. Convert any video you want and watch it on calc.

@GinDiamond: Yea, there was one, but I think it was pretty old and only in black and white.

An 8 level grayscale viewer would be a little silly. Each frame of the video only gets around 4 LCD refresh cycles. When you consider the fact that 8 level grayscale needs a 7 frame loop to achieve 8 colors, you see why this would be a little pointless.

However, maybe you could write a video encoder to take advantage of this and purposely alternate the color of a specific pixel so that it approximates 8 colors. This seems doable, but maybe a little mentally taxing ;D

Also, if you don't want sound, use fourvid. It's uses .png compression and gets around 50% compression.

Just curious since I never actually use them. How are the Axe shortcut keys working inside the program editor? ON + ZOOM, ON + TRACE, and ON + STO.

Are these actually working? Are they sketchy? Do you actually use them or are you afraid to use them due to intermittent errors?

I always use them and they work great except the occasional Unknown error Axe gives but Runer said he fixed it on his side so no biggie. ;)
