TI-89 Section Opened
Posted by Magnus on 17 November 2001, 13:48 GMT

We have now opened up the TI-89 section of the archives, representing another 2,500 files. More sections are on their way - check the File Archive Status information on our front page for up to date information about this.

Update (Magnus): Unix section opened.

When are you planning to open the 92plus section?
There are a lot of programs similar to the 89 section.

Does the game you tried require a kernel?

If it does, but you don't have kernel installed you'll get an error.
For what HW is that game you've tried?

Some games do not work on both HW version, see if you can find what HW is your calc and download an appropriate version of that game.
Did the games graphics appear, but controls didn't work?

If this happened, that's because keymap is different on 92.
Does the game have a readme file and it mentions anything about 92?

Maybe author has something to say about his programs compatibility.

This investigation might help you solve the problem. If now, I'm sure everyone on ticalc can will try to help you. Hope this stuff helps you.

I thought the keymaps on the 89 and 92+ were the same.

Well, most of them are, but things like the arrow keys are switched around.

HECK NO not even close!!! especially rowread.... arrows are like... hand, shift, 2nd, and home (or something like that).. backspace is 5... (this is all if you are playing an 89 game on a 92p).... you can look at the keymap in tigcc under the _rowread function in the index help contents thingy.

Yup! I download TI-89 games and I'm still playing games on my TI 92 Plus, but on the programs with pictures, the pics are smaller.

One could use this time to re-discover old games; if you haven't played them before, they're new to you.

TI-83 files are (sort of) available now, since many of the TI-83 Plus archives also have TI-83 executables included.

I store interesting programs on my computer so I can play them even when the archives are down.. but I am just looking forward to new programs (I know lots of people are waiting to show their latest creations) so they can blow Ticalc.org full of vigour again!

You can run almost any non-Assembly TI-83+ game on your TI-83...

Oops, Wait a second.. the reason why the link is dead is because it is too long to fit in the URL field. Add an "l" at the end of the ".htm" and it will work.

Probably because it was not only a blackjack game, but also a game about BUYING AND SELLING WHORES!!!

I think all this archive reviewing business is total bull and waste of time.

I agree. Seeing how they have ALREADY RECALLED THE CD, and there is little chance of TI wanting to make another TICalc.org CD, there is absolutely no point in doing this. Basically, TICalc's audience has returned to exactly what it was before the concept of the CD existed... in other words, a community of people who couldn't care less whether these programs were here. TICalc: My advice is to stop while you're ahead.

what? so you can trade your sex games? that's not what ticalc is about. remember, we're talking about calculatrs here. you know, those things that do math... stuff that offends people shouldn't have made it into the archive in the first place. now, it a rather abbrupt manner, they are being forced to come the realization that maybe their archive wasn't as clean as they thought it was. I praise ticalc for the action they've taken. it's the best thing they could have done to improve the quality of the archives.

The best thing they could do to improve the quality of their archives, in my opinion, would be to deny the submission of useless demos (like the RPG Maker which did absolutely nothing) and dangerously buggy or malicious programs (like TI-Point, which displays the words "F*CK YOU!!!" and resets your calculator).

Ever heard of freedom of speech? If people on a public web site wish to post programs with even *slight* sexual or drug-related content, they have every right to do so. Now I'm not saying they *should* be, mind you, but I am saying they have the right to.

There should also be a way to avoid that programs end up in the wrong folders. For example, streets.zip and rain.zip which are in TI-89 Assembly Games really should be in TI-89 Assembly Games (DoorsOS) since they require a kernel. (By the way, if anyone with access to the file archives reads that, please move those 2 programs to the correct folder.)

Actually, all you have to do (if you are not too lazy) is send a message stating what you said to filearchive@ticalc.org I've done it before.

I had already sent a mail to that address about streets.zip some time ago but it somehow just got ignored. The file archivers probably get far too many e-mails.
