Oops, with the site upgrade, I forgot to check this topic :P


could somebody make a patch to toggle the program title?
that would be awesome :D


I'll add it someday, I just don't know when that day will be. (Next time I update it though).


could the program editor also use the small font?
that would really optimize screen space :D

also i noticed a bug in the ON+VARS label menu, if you have a lot of labels, the menu will act wierd


I actually did this. I have on my computer the code for a complete program editor using the small font. The only trouble is that it's too slow to be considered for everyday use. It's neat, and you can definitely see a lot with it, but whenever the screen scrolls, I think I remember a 0.5 sec delay (alpha scrolling is painful).

i just noticed that using prettyprint (the app) while a font is active that prettyprint doesn't print things so pretty anymore...
could this bug be fixed?


I'm going to guess no. PrettyPrint probably does some hacks that make it look weird. The problem is on PrettyPrint's end.

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.

O.O
Release it ! I am sure that with a feature such as zStart's jump-to-label it won't be too much of a problem :D

Small font editor O.O
Release it! Would be so epic! Maybe some keyhook to toggle.

I wonder if there could be a way to speed it up? Do you use TI fonts routines? That could explain the slowdown.

That's a good point, I never thought about that. I could try swapping in my own font routine to see if it makes a difference. If I remember correctly, the biggest issue was the determination of lines. (Where line breaks occur.)


I'll see if it still works, if it does, I can release it so people can have a try at it.


Edit:
   Before I go and screw this up by adding the small font routine or gettings distracted for weeks, here's what I had from before. This is a 2 page version of zStart and it only uses the small font editor. So, if you don't like it, well, that sucks haha.

Hmm... Well that's not good. I guess I've never tried sending it to my actual calculator. I'll see what's wrong.


Edit:
   I think I've narrowed down the slowest part of the editor to be the actual displaying of characters (which isn't really that surprising). I'll post a link to the code that needs to be optimized here. I'm out of time to work on this today, but if anyone can make some serious improvements (it probably needs to take about 1/2 as long) then the editor probably won't be as slow. I'll work on it later.

zStart has issues when there are enough labels that the menu goes off the screen. The rightmost column is full of the Btm listing, and the cursor is off the screen, and selecting a label doesn't take you to the right one.
In other news, Frey continues kicking unprecedented levels of ass.

How about right now? ;D

I made it substantially faster by swapping out a bunch of bcalls for direct OS calls, so I think it might actually be fast enough to use now. Let me know what's wrong with it so that I can get an actual release out over spring break.

Things I know are wrong:
2nd + Rcl doesn't work (I don't even think I implemented it)

Also, I fixed the scrolling label menu thing.


Edit:
   This is a 2 page version of zStart that features an alpha small font program editor. (You can't disable it yet)

Man, I didn't even know zStart could be made more awesome that it already was. I just put it on my calc and it's perfect. Speed is really far from being an issue and I can see my indented code without having wrapped lines.

However, Wabbitemu doesn't want to receive this update (says "file too big" even if I have a lot of free RAM (everything is archived) and a lot of free archive. And it doesn't want to uninstall the previous version either, it starts turning off instead of opening the program menu and not accepting any number key input in the homescreen. I had no problem to install it on my calc though (except that it seems like I had to sign the app).

I'm pretty sure it's a Wabbitemu glitch. I told buckeye about it the other day. Trying to install the run on ram clear also bricks wabbitemu.

Yeah, that's what I thought because my calc didn't complain at all. I'll try updating Wabbitemu and see it that fixes anything.
And once again, amazing work !
