TI-85 Emulator for the DS
Posted by Michael on 21 October 2006, 04:07 GMT

Last year we reported on a TI-85 emulator for the Nintendo DS. David Rorex has now released a new version, which is completely rewritten and superior to its predecessor. You can find it at his blog. A "flashcart" is required.

In order to use this on your DS, you need to buy some things. http://dev-scene.com/NDS_Welcome has a quick overview

A good place to buy is: http://natrium42.com/shop/ (I've talked to natrium online before, he seems pretty trustworthy :P)

You need one from category 1 (to boot the DS), and one from category 2 (to store your files for playing on the DS). Pick a device depending on the type of memory cards you want to use (CF, SD, miniSD, or microSD). Personally I've had better luck with the 'Supercard' series.

If you want to see other stuff to download to play on your DS, check out: http://dev-scene.com/NDS_HomebrewCatalog (I help out with this site on the side)

Lol... thats wierd that ticalc would post that...
i have a ti-92plus emulator on my psp right now.
only no touch screen.
i never tried homebrew on my ds because you need to buy too many things for it. An SD card adapter and a card that makes it play the homebrew are expensive. like 60-80 for both.
but psp homebrew, just hook up to the Computer, download some stuff, send it to psp(it uses the same mini usb thing as the calcs do), and play.

Is there any risk of such an emulator crashing or otherwise messing up my precious DS?

Nope, since DS does not have internal storage like the TIs, there's not really anything homebrew can damage. It's remotely possible a crashing app could corrupt your SD or CF card, but they can always be reformatted.

If you are paranoid, you can install FlashMe (has other benefits as well), which includes a safety feature, which allows you to restore your firmware, in case it gets corrupted.

(Firmware corruption can never happen by accident, or by crashing. It can only happen if someone specifically codes a program to do it. There is only one such program known, and it is very rare and unlikely you will ever see it. Just so you know, it's a trojan app which claims to show you inappropriate material.)

WOW...A NEW POST?!?!

I thought ticalc.org had died. There hasn't been news in...forever...

Now that that's off my chest, WHEN WILL THERE BE ONE I CAN USE??? I could really use a emulator for 83/84/89 on my palm Z22!

(or for that matter, a 83/84 emulator om my 89).

Yeah, I have a palm lifedrive and an emulator on that would be sweet. I wish I knew how to do it so I would not have to wait for someone who does.

I wish I had a C++ compiler for palm os (if such a thing exists) and then I could code basic dos-type programs and probably learn how to code for palm.

I wouldn't know where to start for an emulator and I don't know if it would work on a 2x2 inch low res screen but I'd like to see a try.

There is a C compiler that runs on older Palm OS versions (see link), although I never used it much.

A TI-85 emulator for DS sounds great, but its too bad you need a flash cart to do it.

All I know is C++ for dos. I don't know how I would even get a program onto the palm if I could compile it.

Search ticalc.org for 'MulTI', it lets you run 83+ apps on the 89.

I only know of one calculator emulator for the palm, and it's for an older HP calc: http://tinyurl.com/y7mu7t

but MulTI can only run ASM, right? and not even all ASM, right? I want something to run my math programs I built in BASIC 83+ and BASIC 84+

I was concerned we had lost a great website. Even program uploads were stalled for a while.

The "staff" here aren't paid to do this. Most of them are in college, and probably have jobs. Ticalc is just a fun thing they do in their spare time.
News usually goes in cycles; you'll see several new posts and then none for a while. Not that there's much ti calculator news anyways...

I can understand the workload of people, I go to this site usually from the college wifi either during lunch or between class.
