Universal OS v1.10, Julien Muchembled Defeats HW2 Limit
Posted by Nick on 27 February 2000, 21:48 GMT

Imagine the euphoric shock I received when I got an ICQ from Francois Goldgewicht telling me that a new version of Universal OS had been released by Julien Muchembled.
Now multiply that by several googols and you have the ultimate pleasure overload that I experienced when I found out that a patch had been written by the same person to fix the 8 KB limit on assembly programs on Hardware v2.00 calculators running AMS v2.03.
That's right, folks. Now time for some documentation quoting:

If you have:
- a TI89 Hardware 2 and AMS 2.03: launch "ti89_203"
- a TI92 Plus Hardware 2 and AMS 2.03: launch "ti92p203"
The TI92 Plus version has not yet been tested. If people can confirm that it works, email me.
After that, the 8 KB limit should still be there. If you install DoorsOS II or Universal OS, though, things will be just hunky-dory.

Use this at your own risk. If you have any successes, email me. Good luck! :)

Update (Nick): Belated props to Ti.Fr for breaking this and posting the files. I've been busy with lots of real life stuff lately, so sorry for the late update, Francois :)

I have been testing different things to try and make this work right for about and hour now, I'll tell you what I have come up with: (I have a TI89 HW2 AMS 2.03)
**Put the patch file on calc and run it, you dont need to keep it on the calc**
**Install DoorsOS II v.93, you dont need to keep that file either**
Heres the libs I used:
filelib, hexlib, ziplib, userlib- came with DoorsOS
graphlib, hufflib- downloaded the HW2 versions
gray4lib, util- used from Tetris89 AMS 2.xx version
Now the games:
Phoenix- only works with the AMS 2.xx version
Frogger- works fine and dandy
Tetris89- will only work with AMS 2.xx version and with the libs it provides (anyone know what launch is for?)
Jezzball- must use 2.xx version
SMQ- said Memory Violation and then srewed up my calc, took me 10 minutes to finally reset it
Exploding Tic Tac Toe- must take out batteries to fix
Thats it for now, please contact me with your findings!

weird... i tried using hw2 graphlib, and whenever i tried to access a menu in doorsos, it said "memory violation" and quit. when i replaced it with the one that came with doors, it worked again.

you know how before calc.org went down, that new space monkey quest beta came out? supposedly, it was compatible with AMS 2.xx... so maybe tomorrow (when calc.org is scheduled to come back, hopefully), we can go check it out and see if it works?

You better watch out if you're going to run a game of frogger! If you do, then some mathematical functions won't work (i.e. the integral of X^2 from 0 to 1) and then you'd have to take out the batteries or reset (shift+left+right+on).

I could be wrong and that your math functions will still work on your HW2 AMS 2.03, but hey---I'm beyond a doubt that Frogger is incompatible with my mathematical algorithms for AMS 1.05.

I know that this has nothing (almost) to do with the article about, but does anybody know if Sonic MisAdventures works? I really don't want to kill my calc for curiosity's sake.

I don't know about anybody else... but I have a ti89 and have the new 2.03 flash rom installed, have this new universal OS: I then try to play tetris, an the game functions fine, except everytime i try to enter in a name for a high score in tetris, It records the points but not the name, this gets quite agrivating, esp. bc this was one of my favorite pastimes. ie. competing with my friends for the high score..

If anyone else has encountered this problem, and knows how to fix this so that it doesn't happen
or maybe if anyone could just tell me why it happens, id be grateful
Thankyou Shockyr@aol.com

I think it is the same with everyone else, I know that Phoenix never saved high scores until I unarchived it, but I have no clue how to make Tetris save high scores. I have tried a couple of different things, (unarchiving it, moving it into the main folder, a couple others) but still no luck...maybe this could be the biggest thing in the new release!...and an opening screen, that would be good too..

In response to the Tetris bug:
I have tried to contact the names that are given as the makers of the version. but one of em say that he was only the original creator of it. and the other the link for his email address failed(address unknown)... I would just like to let the programer know that his version has a bug in it, a rather pertinent one at that, and I have been unsuccessfull at attempting to reach him. Perhaps if he knew, he would make plans to correct it.
I have since given up hope, and this is the first oportunity ive had at letting others know of this and hopefully as word travels around he can get a whif of this and fix his program.

right now it looks like any file that says it is 2.xx, it is eactly that, any other version will not work for a HW2 AMS 2.03...makes sense, but for you people that dont feel like testing to see what games work, I'll list what asm games I have on my calc (They all work of course): NOTE: any basic game still works fine! dstar, falldown, jezzball, nibbles, phoenix, tetris..anyone know any other asm games that will work?

I'm afraid of the fact that sometimes AMS2.03 can't recover Archive Memory after a crash...
For how many people did it happen ???

all of my archive memory has always come back after crash, but the problem is that libs cant be archived so the programs wont work after a crash anyway unless they do not need a lib....and I had to reinstall the patch and doorsos each time too, so the whole deal with archive memory being saved is only good if you keep really important files on your calc, which i dont really prefer.......

Re: Re: Re: Re: Universal OS v1.10, Julien Muchembled Defeats HW2 Limit
vod

Librarys are small, just keep them archived in a seperate folder along with shell/installer and then when memory gets reset just make a new dir, copy all libraries and the shell into it and run the installer and volia everything workes after reset
