2005 POTY Results
Posted by Michael on 24 January 2006, 15:55 GMT

The long-awaited results of the 2005 Program of the Year competition are finally here! This year the winners were very surprising. You might call 2005 the "Year of the Emulator." For the results, view our POTY Winners page. As always, the results on the surveys are now visible. Congratulations to all 2005 featured programs and their authors!

At last! Too bad TiLem didn't win Windows, I rather like it over Tiemu.

Yeah, for me, TiLEm is more useful because I do Z80 ASM programming. However, TiEmu is unmatched in its ability to run the great 68K games (mmm...Phoenix Platinum...)...

By the way...am I the only one who noticed that the '5' in '2005' isn't correct based on the font used for the rest, the 83/+/SE/84+/SE graphscreen font?

With the C source? It must be even better than I had thought!

yes, you have to compile whith a newer TIGCC bata and check the "generate debug information" box. I think you have to have a special TIGCC debuging version for it to work though.

You also have to disable compression.

TiEmu 2.80 (TiEmu 3 development version). The tigcc-debugging-branch has been merged into TiEmu 3.

Heh. Thanks for the vote of confidence, but really, TiEmu is much more complete, more stable, and overall very deserving of the POTY award.

I'd like to think that TilEm could be there someday, but it most assuredly is not there yet.

It's definitely on its way, though. Needless to say, I favor the one I do because of the calculator model series I program for. :)

It will be, for sure !

Be patient, bringing about a program at the top is a long-time work. This can take 1/2 or more years.

Half a year is very little time. Two years is more realistic.

How could it POSSIBLY have taken this long to take ONE NON-ANIMATED screenshot (the Emu8x and GB68K screenshots already existed, maybe the Ti-Emu one did as well?) and add the little POTY text below in the pictures? Oh yes, I almost forgot the difficult task of writing the 5 sentences of description...

I think it has something to do with the "outside" where there are no electrical outlets and someone painted the ceiling blue...

Have you ever considered that perhaps we all collaborated to purposely delay releasing the results just so we could annoy you (and only you) specifically?

Perhaps it is your secret hope that some head of state will make an official proclamation that "The ticalc.org staff is officially made of cheese unless in such event as the results of the 2005 Program of the Year survey is released to the public in one week's time."

The TiEmu screenshot is ours too (Romain's to be precise).
