GtkTiEmu Released
Posted by Eric on 23 May 2001, 01:42 GMT

Romain LiƩvin, of TiLP fame, and Thomas Corvazier, of Street Figher 89 fame, have teamed up to bring you....(drumroll, please) TiLP Fighter! Wait, no, let's try that again.......GtkTiEmu! This is a fast TI-89/92/92+ multi-platform emulator. It features an easy-to-use GTK+ GUI, full linkport emulation, a nice debugger, and more. This should be welcome news for Linux users out there. Screenshots can be found on the GtkTiEmu homepage, or proceed to download the stable Unix version or the Windows development version.

In related news, a new TiLP has been released for Unix and Windows. The new version features such goodies as TI-89/92/92+ ROM dumping, GtkTiEmu virtual linking, and other various improvements.

GtkTiEmu vs. VTI

What advantages does this program have over VTI? In other words, why should I download the Win Development version when VTI works just fine on my computer?

BTW: You can find AMS 1.00, 1.05, 2.03, 2.04, and 2.05 for the 89 by clicking the link above, then going to TI calculators. At the bottom of the page, you will find links to the above AMS's.

vti does not work in linux/unix therefor there is nothing until this program came along.

Who said you'd need it? This is a nice tool for *NIX users who don't like rebooting to use VTI. I'm very happy that this has finally been released and it has been long awaited since it was announced several months ago.

VTI works just fine under WINE.

Do the linking protocols work under WINE? I remember trying VTI once in WINE and it crashed. I guess it all depends on the version of WINE. Normally, new versions fix and break programs alike.

I have tried VTi under Wine once and it did not work fine. I had a lot of windows and this was slower.
But, you're right Tim. mmu_man says to me that this depends on the Wine versions but it works so so.

If it is faster than VTI, why not? Recent versions of VTI need about 50 seconds to start on Pentium 133.

I have tried it today on a PC166 with WindowsNT4 and it need less than 10 seconds to start the ROM. It can load faster if there is a RAM image to load.

You can edit it with a hex editor, though that ruins the validity of the OS, and you cannot transfer it with the graphlink software. Dont worry about it. Its not a big deal.

You can use TIB receiver to transfer an altered AMS.
Though, if you make a mistake you'll have to wait another 40 minutes to send it onto the calc again.

I cant seem to get this working under windows 2000. It gives the error saying that it is unable to locate a ROM. I have tried everything, but failed.

This program is great*, but can it be used to put Marvel vs Capcom 89 on my calc? The only reason it sucked (MvC) is that I haven't been able to play it. Is there any program other than the one specified by the maker of MVC that can be used? I can't get the proper driver program for it and it's too big. I saw the screenshots for the game and they were awesome! I gotta have that game, even if it crashes my calc after less than ten minutes.

I typed too fast last time, oops.

MVC is a fake. If you open the game file in a word processor, it will show Marver vs Capcom 89 a couple hundred time and thats all!

That's vile. I knew it was too good to be true. It looked amazing. I think such things should be reported. Anyway, the linking program looks good.
Ha ha twentieth post! What's the point of first post or whatever?

A: that was reported and deleted from ticalc.org a LONG time ago (what rock have you been living under j/k)
B: The first/2nd/3rd/negative eighth post thing first originated before internet existed and news traveled slowly from mouth to ear. Then people would brag about hearing the news before anyone else they knew, from this competition the world was encouraged to keep up with local and global events, which increased communications and allowed for new ideas and innovations to travel faster throughout the globe. Now, it is a traditional habit to want to see the news first, tell other people that you heard it first. (Sort of like the "____ was here" thing :)
