Ion v1.3 and Lots and Lots of Modules From Dan Englender
Posted by Nick on 2 January 2000, 08:05 GMT

Joe Wingbermuehle has released version 1.3 of his popular shell, Ion, for the 83 and the 83 Plus. New features include major improvements for external modules.

And while we're on that note, Dan Englender of the TCPA has released nine brand new modules for Ion. Modules are simple add-ons that are almost always incredibly small in file size; they help you customize specific features of the shell. All of these are pretty self-explanatory so I'll leave you to download and explore.

Hex Viewer for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Delete for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Alphabetize - Description for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Alphabetize - Name for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Contrast for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Startup Message for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Organize List for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Folder for the 83 and the 83 Plus.
Hide for the 83 and the 83 Plus.

And finally, in time for the new year, TCPA has released a completely overhauled version of their home page. It looks very impressive so far. We're looking forward to new releases by TCPA all the time!

Update (Nick): As you've seen on the comment boards, there have apparently been some problems with the modules. Dan has uploaded and claimed all the programs that needed to be fixed. Hex Viewer, Contrast, Alphabetize - Name, Organize List, Startup Message, Hide and Delete should all be functional now. Thanks to Dan for helping me get these up as soon as possible. ;)

Update... The Return (Nick): Ion v1.4 has been released by Joe. This fixes many problems that people have been having with the modules. To this end, all the modules have been updated by Dan. Looks like a mass re-downloading is in order *g*.

For some reason, the modules will not do anything. Ion does not even show them on the interface screen if it is supposed to. Is there something i am not doing?

First (and most importantly), make sure you have Ion 1.3. These modules will not run on older versions. Modules do not appear in the program list. They add functionality to the shell, and you generally have the press a key to activate them. The readme's for the modules tell you how to activate them. Ie. Press the Delete key twice (second time for confirmation) to delete the currently selected program if you have zmdel on your calc.

Obviously more than one person is having the same problem here, but I am not among them. Seems to work fine for me. The only thing I can think of is that you need to remember that modules need to be unarchived, and that you need to have Ion 1.3. I'll continue looking to try to find the problem.

It was late, I was tired, and it was the day after new years. Mistakes happen. And this one was pretty silly. Here's the deal, in a quick flash of intelligence, I zipped the files from December the 27th, instead of January the 1st. The December 27th ones had a different module detect code (the one that was used for Ion 1.2 and early versions of Ion 1.3) which has since changed. Ion was thus not detecting the modules. I've fixed this, and am in the process of uploading to TCPA and Ticalc. The updated files should be available tonight at TCPA and tomorrow at ticalc.

Sorry for the inconvinience this may have caused,

These modules are nice, It would have been nicer if the folders could be visible, and you could file indiviual Archived programs, since that fact that ION can run archived programs makes it the best shell for the 83+.

I'll look for that in later versions...

For some reason the hide program f***** up my calculator. I can even reset the memory. I even tried taking out all the batteries, EVEN THE BACKUP BATTERY, and it just shows my the ion main screen for a second then it shuts off.

Leave all the batteries out for awhile, then put them back in. It will work. It's practically impossible to mess up your calculator permanently with ION. You also failed to mention which calculator (83, 83 plus) crashed. As to why it crashed, I don't know. What were you trying to do when it crashed?

I have an 83+, and I was trying to hide a program.

You can look forward to version 1.4 of Ion (which fixes a module bug Ion 1.3 had), and updated modules within the week (not to mention folder names, as someone requested I believe). This should fix any and all current module crashes!

Thanks,

Sounds good, and it is nice to know you accept the ideas from the general public

sounds cool...quick point though, make it so(or make a module for it) you can change folder names. Definitely a reason to use ION instead of ICE.

The idea sounds good, but when will Ion 1.4 come out?
