Annual TI App Contest
Posted by Michael on 18 May 2003, 06:52 GMT

TI has announced their third annual TI App Development Contest. For those of you unfamiliar with this, the objective is to develop a "creative, mind-expanding, user-friendly" flash application for the 73, 83+/SE, 89/92+/200. There are a variety of prizes in the Z80 and 68000 categories, such as trips and TI products. The contest is open until August 20. Go code now!

hi, I just bought a Ti-89 & then wrote a flash app to deal with chemistry & the thing works great but *&*@@ won't load into my calculator because of some certificate security. I wanna use my program!!! and I want to give it away 4 free. How do I get around this? I ported it to another compiler (TIGCC) but its hokey (have to use var-link, page down for it, close the parens, no windows, eeeek...and its not an event-driven model yukk etc...). Im pissed I wrote & polished this flash app all last night and cant even use it, and cant find dit on this site regarding this issue. I wrote Ti but this is the weekend u know. Can u help me out? There must be a way, otherwise how could they have a Ti App Contest thing or give away freeware? thanks bros

What would be the point of an age limit? You should get extra points for being young.

Privacy reasons. They cannot collect information from kids under 13. Seems to me though that, with a guardian's approval, they should be allowed. Oh well, doesn't matter cause I am over 13. Wait, let me check. Nope, still 12. Joking ;)

Oh, that's right. (LOL, I just read that in the rules a few seconds ago)

That was such a pain to me when I was 12. I always had to pretend I was older on every site I went to.

Ok, I phrased it wrong, I have been visiting this site since I was 9, and posted then, but my handle was different then. I have only had this one for a few days tho.

I don't know... if I remember correctly, last time, they had it split up into two categories--older than 16, and less than 16, but I didn't participate last year, so I'm not sure. I just thought that if you're... I don't know... eight years old, that it would be kind of hard to make an APP... and if they did, then they'd probably think that they cheated and that an adult wrote it for them.

Can it be in TIGCC??

According to the official rules, it merely has to be a flash application. I think then that you can use anything you want.

wha? who? whe? wher?

it depends on what functions and stuff you use.

But they don't go through your code to see what you used... it's dishonest if you use the TIGCC team's code (like functions that are in TIGCC but not in the SDK from TI), but they're not gonna disqualify you unless they find out like half of your code is not yours.

ok, from the FAQ:

"Because TI BASIC (keystroke programs) and assembly language (ASM) programs can only be run from RAM, do not require signing, they will not be permitted in the TI App Development Contest."

Which basically means TIGCC programs.... then later in the FAQ it say sto send the *.cer file, which is only made with the SDK... then later in the FAQ it says you can use any developement tools you want, but anything made without TI SDK cannot get the Grand or 2nd prize.

no. the FAQ and rules say "Entries to the TI App Development Contest must be submitted as valid Flash Applications. The recommended tool for developing Flash Apps for the 68000 platform is TI FLASH Studio. The recommended tool for developing Flash Apps for the Z80 platform is the TI-83 Plus/TI-73 Explorer SDK. These tools can be found in the Developer Center. If you would like to use a different tool to develop your Application, you will need to refer to that tool's documentation regarding the ability to create Flash Apps. ". so you can use TIGCC...as long as you can get the out put to be in the format they want. "According to the Official Rules, entries to the TI App Development Contest must be submitted as valid Flash Applications. Flash Applications for the Z80 platform are written in Z80 Assembly language. Flash Apps for the 68000 platform are written in C. Entries submitted in a format other than a Flash Application will be disqualified. " Basically you can make the program in TIGCC, find out what differs from RAM proggies to APPS, convert the code, use their SDK to make the .cer file. Viola simple as that.

Wow, so if they don't require you to use ASM, then I _could_ enter... but I'd have to read the rest of the rules and stuff.

The flash SDK for the 68k calcs is C, not asm.
