In 5 days, the TI-89Ti will be in my hands ^_^ and I'll be able to try it out...it looks really cool, and there was obviously a lot of effort and time put into it.

I think that there mught be a typo in the article. When I click the GUPM link it offers english and German....no swis available. Are you sure its a Swiss programming group?

Yes, but they speak german. The Swiss speak several different languages. There country has different names in each, so when the Swiss top level domain name was chosen, it had to be based on the latin: Helvetica.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switzerland for more.

The Swiss speak at least four official languages; of these, german is one. I can't remember any others off the top of my head, though.

You Swiss are so cool. I think I will get a Swiss citizenship and move to Antartica.

This has been out for ages... it's just been recently updated.

Not that I can find anything new in it.

There are still a few bugs, like the contrast changes don't go back to normal when they're done on a HW1 TI89

Yeah, well, all good games still have bugs. Why do you think computer games have so many patches and mods this days? The only way to get around that is to spend years beta testing, and who wants to do that?

There is still a problem with the contrast in v 1.01 ?
This bug should have been fixed...

on a HW1 TI89, I find that the contrast keeps getting far too low (white), so you have to keep hitting [diamond][+] in the game, or you can never see anything

i like the "promotional image" it looks very professional (with the exception of "The project sounds interesting")

looking at the screenshots in the promotional imgage kinda remind me of old Atari/NES screenshots on old video game packaging. Anyone else feel the same?
