TilEm: A New Generation of Emulator
Posted by Michael on 3 August 2005, 16:55 GMT

I had been waiting for the v1.0 release of this program to post news, but I have succumbed to temptation because of how useful it already is. Benjamin Moody and Solignac Julien have released TilEm v0.972. This Z80 emulator is significantly more compatible than VTI in that it supports the full range of calculators from the 73 through the 86, including the 84+. TilEm also features full support for flash memory and external linking. The above link is a version for Linux; you can also find v0.971 for Windows.

Andree Chea has released a utility to assist users in loading ROMs into TilEm. rom8x is a calculator program for the 83+ and 84+ series which dumps your boot page (not found in OS upgrade files). After sending a complementary OS upgrade (.8xu) to the emulated calculator, you then have a complete ROM image.

Update: TilEm for Windows is now at v0.972.

Does an 83+ boot page work as the boot page for an 83+SE?

I would doubt it.

Unfortunately, it won't, because there are major differences between the 83+BE and 83+SE, such as the addition of several new ports (e.g. MD5 calculations) not available on the BE.

TilEm is really great; however, I'm having trouble getting programs from the emulator. Where does the emulator send the files when you use the link menu, or is there a better way to do this?

Once the file is received a dialog should pop up... if you're not seeing it, this is a bug...

Yeah, no, I don't get any dialogs popping up. The program just sits there trying to send the file.

You're right, yes, I'm sorry. It doesn't seem to work at all with DBUS calcs! I think I ran into this before, and I could have sworn I'd fixed it... gah. Well, more stuff to do for the next release.

In the meantime, if you need to, you can get files off using TiLP and the virtual link.

How do I do that?

two Questions=
1. When I rightclick on the calculator, no "Link" option shows up, so how do I link?
2. Can I update the 84+se OS directly on/through the emu ( i dont have an actual calc, i just found a rom on google) because the rom is 2.41 and i really want mathprint. Thank you very much.

Is anyway to set a breakpoint on a specific page? Any future plans to allow viewing of any page in the debugger or hex view by user selection?

No because the memory mapping is hardware-dependent, and yes.

I have a ti84plus se and I found that using Tilp with my parallel link works to dump ROM image. You may have to play with the port settings, because it didn't work right the first time or so, but after a while the 84's rom (which is 2 MB, the 83p's might be smaller) fully copied onto my 500 mhz win98 machine. As for compiling, I found that TSE compiler works well to build straight to .8xp, but you must replace "b_call" with "bcall" or you will get an error, you could try doing this with TASM, too.

My problem:
I can't get large TI86 programs from my computer onto my Emu8x 86 on my TI 84 + SE. I have a homemade parallel cable.

Finally, my solution:
Don't use VTi, it doesn't work. Use TiLem instead and you should have no problems with it. Only thing is it wouldn't link to my friend's real 86, but neither would TiLP.
