FXLib by Markus Klisics
Posted by Nick on 9 April 2000, 18:46 GMT

Markus Klisics of that crazy ol' TCPA has released an interesting new library called FXLib for the 89 and the 92 Plus. FXLib allows you to add background sound to assembly programs. It hasn't been tested on HW2.

Watch out for TCPA's new projects - they've expressed an interest in incorporating sound into them. This will be an interesting revival of the days of old sound-utilizing programs on the 85 such as ZPong.

Sound! At last! I've always wanted sound on programs before, but only one or two games I've ever played have ever had sound for them. Although I don't own a TI-89 or 92, I'm still looking forward to the day when TI-83 programmers incorporate sound and music and fx into their programs. Great Job!

There is a game with sound for the TI-83. I forgot what its called, but its a starwars type game where you fly around in space trying to destroy other ships. This program has music and snd FX. I'll try to remember the name. I think I downloaded it from here.

Quite a few old 83 SOS progs had sound effects (since zlib had a been function in it). Although they sounded like various pitched beeps, it was something at least. The amazing part about FXLib is that it plays the sound in the background, meaning that the rest of the program can continue executing while the sound effect is playing.

This sounds very cool! Exactly how does it work? I have not downloaded it yet so if it is the documentation, I'll find out.

I have a TI-89 and I don't get it. How can you have sound on a TI-89? It doesn't have speakers or any sound-out source. Where would the sound come from?

you have to build speakers which will be plugged in to the calc-output
the materials to build speakers should be around $5 you can get them at any radio shack, go to www.calc.org/hardware/speakers.html
or just click just click on the web-link for further informations on how to build speakers

You have to either buy a 3.5mm->2.5mm adapter and plug headphones into the linkport, or get an AM radio and put it up to the linkport. Either way allows you to have sound. The program sends out signals from the linkport, and the headphones/radio turns it into sound.

I have a TI89 HW2 AMS 2.03 and I was just wondering what programs do have sound right now? I know that "lights" has sound, but are there any other games or programs with sound besides the scales and music in the sound directory? Thanks for the info....

I've had my 83 for a while and made a speaker for it, and I got my 89 about a month ago. I haven't used it with my 89 yet and I was wondering, do you need any special program to make the sound work with the games on an 89, or just the library?

Games have to be programmed to make sound. This lib adds abilities to sound playing that they haven't had before. Sound itself though, for the calcs, has been around for a while.
