ti-cas.org Programming Contest
Posted by Eric on 9 September 2001, 07:39 GMT

ti-cas.org has announced a programming contest that's being sponsored Texas Instruments. The rules seem to be pretty open-ended, so check the contest webpage for more detailed information.

Update (Eric): I've been informed by ti-fr.org that they're also running a similar programming contest where you must create a utility for the TI-89, TI-92, or TI-92+.

How did I guess that you're under 18?

There don't seem to be any age restrictions, but you do have to be a white male with rich parents to enter.

I know I'm replying to my own post, But I seam to be having trouble downloading files from ticalc.

The first time I download a file its okay.
But When I try to download another file, it won't download it.
I will show me the 'File downloading Window'.
But it won't show me any information about my downloading.

So Please If anyone has any information about this please help me.

From the contest information page:

"Who can take part?

Are the rest of the world excluded from the contest or what!?

Yes, but ti-cas are well known to be a bunch of racists, so this comes as no surprise...

Actually, I think I might just go and code something which uses strong encryption, so that the French and Americans (I guess that means USians...) can't look at it...

Remember kiddies, M = C^e (mod N)...

Actually people in the US can import strong encryption. The restrictions are on exporting.

Okay, a self-encrypted DeCSS implementation then.

I think they have removed the part about "French and American users", thank God. That would have effectively eliminated the best programmers out there.

This contest is of course opened to all the students, and there is no age limit.
The games can be written with the integrated language (Ti-BASIC), or directly for the 68000 processor. The asm programs should not use kernels (nostub). On the other hand, they can use routines if that is necessary. These routines should not obligatorily be created by the participant of the game, if that the author gives his agreement.
It is authorized to use development.
If you are already the author of a program, it is authorized to present it !
It is however not authorized to take again an existing source, and to modify it.
The programs must be sent to contest@ti-cas.org with a screenshot and must be limited to 2 per category.

The site Ti-Fr (www.ti-fr.org) proposes a similar contest for the creation of utilities. You can propose this type of program to Ti-Fr!

I hope you know that "nostub" on the 82, 83 and 85 are kinda impossible. I hope that the "..should not use.." means that if it is somehow not possible to make it nostub, it may be made for a specific kernel or shell.

Can 83+/83+SE and 86 programs be nostub? I thought that you could only make nostub programs on the 89 and 92+.

Re: Re: Re: (correction)

The TI-82/3(+(SE)) requires a shell to run assembly programs, but the TI-86 does not--in fact, all TI-86 assembly programs can be run with a shell or as nostub. I am not sure about the TI-85, but I believe that all of its games require a shell.

83/83+/83+SE programs do not require a shell, so the rules may mean that programs should be written without requiring a shell.

hmm, on the 83 "no shell" means "no squishing", which means that programs become twice as big as normal. Some waste of valuable space that is.

No, using the Zasmload loader program, (or an unsquisher program you might write yourself,
you can run squished programs

I'm getting confused. Is the contest only for games?
