I'm only a BASIC programmer, and I've gotten pretty far into the programming language. first, can anybody generate a few picture vars for me in their spare time? Thanx. Also, any ASM programmers out there, please tell me where to download TASM for the DOS! Thanx again!

You just have to change some sprites in the source. To do this, open the source and find where the sprites are stored (usually just several rows of ".db %xxxxxxxx" where "x" is a 0 or 1).

In sprites, a "0" means white and a "1" means black, so just draw out a black and white sprite in your chosen image editor of the same size as the original sprite. Convert it to 1's and 0's (either manually or using a program) and put it in place of the sprites.

In Wak-a-goomba, the sprites are 16x16 pixels in size, but each half (left and right) is stored as a separate sprite. You'll have to split your image in half and convert it to two sprites.

Once you've changed the sprites, just assemble it!

Afro Dance doesn't include the source, so it's a bit trickier to change the program. You could ask the author for the source, but if that doesn't work you could use a hex editor and play around with the binary. I suggest you learn about tools like dd, hexdump, and xxd, all which are typically found in most Unix systems.

You could try to create a PBM (Portable Bitmap) or even a BMP (Windows Bitmap) file out of the binary file, simply by adding a simple header (see the man page for pbm(5)) to the beginning of it, so you can view the file in an image viewer and find the exact location of the sprites that way. You could even just edit that image (make sure the bitmap header has the correct height so the editor saves every byte from the program), save it, and remove the header (using dd).

You can also use the "convert to bitmap and edit in an image editor then convert back to a program file" technique on Wak-a-goomba, but it's not necessary because the source is available.

Sorry if you don't understand all of that.

2 AWESOME Game ideas
AzulFlame  Account Info

I have a couple ideas for games (hopefully for ti-83+).

One is a racing game where you pilot a little futuristic racecraft (kind of like jetskis) on the walls of a circular tunnel with no gravity, obstacles/barriers, AI (other ships), bonuses, boosting, checkpoints, attributes (armor, speed, acceleration) and complicated courses with curves in all directions. This game is modeled after Ballistica, which I saw once in a video arcade and haven't been able to locate since. If you want to see a very basic model of the layout, go to www.2flashgames.com and play Ghost.

The other is a greyscale BattleBots with AI, competitions (single or tournaments), money, and custom bots, like the PC game. (It might be easier to do a separate program for the modifier/customizer and the actual game and linked battles would be cool too.)

The most important thing about the tunnel game - that I forgot to say - was that rather than your craft moving around the wall of the tunnel, it should appear that THE TUNNEL ROTATES and that you are stationary.

Operation Ocarina
AzulFlame  Account Info

I have another game idea; however, this time I will actually attempt to carry it through rather than simply throwing out an idea.

I would like to make a sound program, which initially is only a Legend of Zelda(tm), custom-note Ocarina player which uses the sounds of THE INDIVIDUAL NOTES FROM THE GAME to play custom tunes in an on-calculator song creater (later I will add other instruments from Majora's Mask etc.).

!!!!!!!ATTENTION!!!!!!!

Unfortunately, I do not possess the sound files from the game FOR INDIVIDUAL NOTES MADE BY THE OCARINA and thus cannot preprogram them into the calculator. If anyone is in possession of these files, I would be much obliged if you would tell me where to get them. (your name will be in the opening screen as "SOUND FILES PROVIDED BY " + yourname + " and Nintendo(tm)'s Legend of Zelda" or something of the nature.)

Please give feedback to help Operation Ocarina!

calc shuts off, and NO response.
the end might be wrong, because my notes are a bit messed up.
i did some independant research on the Motorola 6800 Exec codes a while ago, because there was NOTHING on the internet about it.

or just do that code without the C9 at the end. C9 in ASM means RET or return. without the RET instruction at the end, it will crash anyways. I suggest putting in the opcodes for DI and HALT (look for them on a ASM-hex opcodes table)-- it causes a major crash

DrawArc function?????????????????????
AzulFlame  Account Info

Does anyone have any asm code that quickly draws a portion of a circle (an arc) with radius r, from angle a to angle b. I have a way to do it in basic but it is VERY slow, inconsistant for different sized circles, and is very badly coded. An example of what I might want to do would be to:
draw an arc that resembles a 'C' with radius 2 from +60 degrees to -60 degrees (+300 degrees).

IS THERE ANY EASY WAY TO DO THIS? -> A FUNTION/OVERLOADED METHOD?

Re: DrawArc function?????????????????????
AzulFlame  Account Info

While/for-loops work to an extent, but I have had trouble drawing bigger circles; I have not been able to find a way to scale the While/for-loop in order to avoid skipping or overwriting pixels when I draw different sized circles:
For example, when I draw 3/4 of a small circle, it may take almost as much time as when I draw 3/4 of a large circle, and the large circle is not completely connected.
Also, for-loops are rather slow, and to make an efficient game I would either need to optimise the While/for-loop or use asm.

DOES ANYONE HAVE THE asm code THAT THE ti-83+ calculator USES TO DrAw CiRcLeS?????!!!!???!!?

Re: Re: DrawArc function?????????????????????
qbman  Account Info

This is in Basic, but it is relitively fast for large cicles and does not miss connect them.

start code

radius->R
Resolution->N
Startangle->S
Endangle->E
(E-S)/N->N
For(A, S, E-N, N)
Line(Rcos(A), Rsin(A), Rcos(A+N), Rsin(A+N))
End

end code

S must be less than E, or nothing will happen

The higher resolution (N) is, the slower, but better the circles(or arcs) will be. For small circles and arcs, use a small resolution to speed up the process.

Also, note which mode you are in, if you are in Degree mode, S and E mus be in degrees (-360 to 360, generally), but if you are in radian mode, use -2*pi to 2*pi.

Line(Rcos(A)+X, Rsin(A)+Y, Rcos(A+N)+X, Rsin(A+N)+Y)

Portable Bitmap is just a generic raster (bitmap) file format, similar to Windows Bitmap. It's a very simple format and can be read and written by many different image editing programs.

There are also Portable Graymap (PGM) and Portable Pixmap (PPM) file formats which support grayscale and full-colour images, respectively, but they aren't as useful as PBM for "seeing" or reverse-engineering a calculator program.

by "functions" i'm assuming you mean subprograms. well, you have 2 options:

1. use BasicBuilder to package them into an app. you can download BasicBuilder on ticalc. something like archives > windows utilities > basicbuilder. they also have a beOS version.

2. this wouldn't fix locking the code out, but whenever you have something like "prgmJUMP" in your code, just paste the code from the subprogram right there. mind you, you'll have to change the subprogram a little, because it won't be a subprogram anymore, but it will eliminate the existance of the subprogram.

Hope i helped a little,

not sure exactly what you mean by 'fuse', but in one prog, you hit [2nd] then Sto->.

The only problem with using Mirage is if you lock a program using it, someone could just unlock, because you can't take out the colon. if you use a asm library to lock a program, it'll be much harder to unlock. (you would have to use a asm library to unlock, and most people use Mirage and not asm libraries, so your probably safer there

there is a way to create a pgrm inside another pgrm at the start the lock pgrm prelude is:

If CB=(desired 4 digit code here)
Then
Goto PG
End
If CB≠(same 4 digit code as stated above)
Then
Disp "INCORRECT"
Goto ST
End
Lbl PG
(pgrm starts here)

this is a very basic way to lock the pgrm. you can do more than 4 digits for your code, but 3 and 4 are the easiest to remember.

ok, download TI Graph Link if you don't have it
open your program in graph link and at the bottom of the code window there should be a little check box that says locked or something like that - click it and save your program - viola! code locked

first, to lock your BASIC programs... you put the file on the computer, using your link, then if you have ti-graph link, move the game to a file that you can locate using ti-graph link, and then open it. It should come up with the program's code in the box. But after that, you check a little box in the bottom of the screen that say's "protected" then put it back on your calc, then no one can screw with it...
UNFORTUNATLY...when you do that, you cant mess with it either (on your calc) but you CAN mess with it if you put it back on your computer...
hope that helped...
if you need anymore help, email me at "dizzyoyo@sbcglobal.net" or just post it again...

rigview = Rotating Interlaced Greyscale picture VIEWer

To make it simple, its a program written that allows the viewing of 4 level greyscale pictures on the TI 83. As for where to get it, try a search or in the archives. Something like this:

Archives > TI-83 plus > Graphics > ASM > MirageOS > Rigview.zip

I think it is in that general area. I know there is a Mirage OS version, so it should be there.

Unmodified ROM images I believe are not illegal when the company (namely ti) is distributing them for free to start with. Also, there is a rom image on the cd that comes with USB cable, just do a search for *.8xu files on the cd (at least I think it is 8xu, if that doesn't work, try *.8x?, that will list all ti83+ files on the cd).

Distribution of rom images IS illegal!!!
There's a reason that TI doesn't have them on their website-they are copywritten information. Just check the readme for VTI. It will tell you that rom images are copywritten, and that the programmer of VTI will not send them to you because they are. Please do not illegally download them. If you want to use VTI, hook up your own calculator the the comp and send your own rom image to it.

ticalc.org should delete the posts containing the web sites that distribute the rom images.

Linear Account Info

Okay, so you're programming in basic, huh?
I should think that in assembly you would not NEED to lock something, so here's the REALLY DIFFICULT instructions for my type of BASIC prog lock:

Step one: Go to the www.detachedsolutions.com site, click on calcsys or search for it whatever. Get the program called calcsys whatever you do. Load it on your calc with the cable (its kinda important to have one at this point)

Step two: Create another BASIC program, and make it execute your original basic program. (in the edit window hit the PRGM key and select your program to execute)

Re: Re: need help
Linear Account Info

Step three (the hardest): in your APPS menu run Calcsys. Press 6 (more); Press 1 (VAT); Press 1 (Prog/List VAT); You should now see a list of five programs or variables you have on your calculator. Keep pressing 6 (Next) until your ORIGINAL (the one you want to lock) BASIC program shows up in the list somewhere (#1-5). When it does, press the number associated with your program in the list (if it was #1 press 1). Ignore all that stuff except for VAT Loc.
copy the four-digit hex number after the "VAT Loc:" somewhere. Now press enter, 7, 6, 6, and you should be back in the main menu. Press 1 for Hex Editor. Press ALPHA+tan (type in g) and a Goto Address should pop up.
Type in the VAT Loc number. Press enter. Press enter again. Type in 06 (that should change one symbol from 05 to 06). This makes your program impossible to edit unless the person to whom you give the program also has calcsys and they are smart enough to know what to do :) Now press 2ND+MODE (quit) and run the new program that executes your program. Notice that your new program runs your old one just fine but your old one cannot be edited and when you break it with the ON key the only option is QUIT. I've tested this method quite hastily so it might not work ALL the time but it did for me. If you want to make the program editable again change that symbol back to 05 and it should work.

in order to move a sprite around, you need variables for the sprite's location. The sprite's function format needs the parameters pic#,sprite X, sprite Y, sprite width, sprite height, destination X, destination Y. You change the last two parameters (dest X,Y) to move it around. Assuming you know how to.

You can not create a program from inside a program using BASIC. Believe me, I have tried. However, the simpler way is to create both programs, and link them together by grouping them before sending them to anyone else. This will save you the hassle of having to recreate a new program every time you run your program.

Yeah, but I don't want a label, I want a new program xD Since i'm working on a password program IN BASIC that so far:
- Blocks the ON button, so cannot break out of program
- Backs up the password LIST file so it won't be deleted if the calculator is reset

Now all I need is some way to prevent the program itself to not get deleted if the calc is reset intentionally.

if you create a group and store your program to it you can reset your ram over and over again but you will still have a copy of your program in your archives. the only problem is you can't reset your achives and your ram at the same time and you had better make sure you have ungrouped your programs before deleting a group.

Hey, These are the problems I ran into, and that is why I asked, because he said that he did figure out how to block it in BASIC... I find it interesting that you asked me if i was trying to make a virus, because I really was trying to make the opposite. I was attempting to make a custom security program, very unique. It is all in BASIC because I am too used to C++ and Java and everything else to be able live with the idea of having to use a limited number of variables, and hiving to 'push' and 'pop' them so they don't get deleted. Anyway, the prog draws a large "TI-84 PLUS" (because that's the type of calc I have) and has my name and phone number underneath it. Then it waits untill a key is pressed, and if it matches the key I specified to be the first in my password it goes on to the next key, etc. If the key does not match the specified key, it executes a Asm prog a friend of mine made for me that simply turns the calc off. Then when they turn that calc back on, the prog starts all over again because I have the "startup" app set to run that prog. I figure that (if it ever got stolen) eventually the theif would get fed up with it just turning off, and return it. This however, will not stop anyone with enough knowledge of the calcs to know to try breaking out of the prog with the ON key. Anyhow, that's enough rambling from me for now...

Exec "4E444E754E750000"
is to turn of the calc in BASIC.
put it in a loop, and the only way to BREAK it is to, when the calc turns off, wait a second (to wait for it to completely shut off) and then hold the ON button and don't let go until it's on and broken.
Exec is a VERY usefull command for BASIC programmers, but you have to be VERY careful.

Exec commands are just raw data in Hex (i think).
you get them by taking an ASM program and using a program (like for the 89, makeexec. or for the 84... im not sure the beast exists.)
your best bet is to get a Ti-89.
haha.
but short of that you could probably (and im going out on a limb because i don't have one,) write what you want in C, compile it (using TIGCC), and then refrence it in your program.
but if you go that far, you might as well learn C, and write your program in it.

You can try making that program, but you'd be better off just to use a built in feture of Mirage OS. Set a password and then select "Enable PW Protect." This will have you prompt for your password every time you enter Mirage, but if you press ON while within Mirage it will turn your calc. off, and when you turn it back on you will still be within Mirage, so it promps for your password. One caution though, if at any time your batteries are removed while within Mirage (wheither your calc. is on or not) your RAM will be cleared. I don't know about ION or any other calc. OS.

actually, for the 89's, the ON key GetKey # is 267, but it will still break the program. trust me. i've been working on a similar program, but all attempts have failed because of that damn ON button.
Calclock is a good one, because it's a bit harder to break, but still is not foolproof.
i suggest writing the ON button disable thing in ASM or C, and then use MakeExec, or CreatASM to convert it into an Exec code, THEN incorperate that into your code.

good luck with that since you can't hack in basic or ceate some sort of loop that would open the system files that would somehow change weatherthe on breaks basic programs or not...
of course you might be able to do it with an asm program...

Congratulations, you have just realized what I told you many months ago. When you send your virus to your client, make sure you send the main program ALONG WITH THE OTHER PROGRAM IN A GROUP. That way, when your client accesses your program, it won't have to create the new program because IT'S ALREADY ON THEIR CALCULATOR.

store coordinates of character into x and y
using getkey, if down is pressed, add to x
if up is pressed, subtract from x
if right is pressed, subtract from y
if left is pressed, add to y

PS

you could also search "move" for files, then download a good one and look at the code.

well there are several ways to do this, are you programming in basic or assembly to begin with? and what platform? i only really program in assembly using a C compiler for the translation (im not very good at raw assembly) but im an accomplished basic programmer. in basic you could run through a loop that uses a matrix as a way of storing your variables (this may not work on all calcs but it does on the 89 and may on some other platforms) This is kind of a round about way to make an array, so here goes. (continue on next post? lol)

Re: Re: RE: Game ideas

you check the sides of the charecter against the walls of the maze in this case or of the other "sprites" in basic it would most likely be letters,something like this for C:
if (Xcharecter >= xwall and Xcharecter <= Xwall + (width of wall goes here))
// code for instance goes here//
End
and likewise for the Y vars.
in basic you are working with very small x and y numbers so you really only need to check if the x of a charecter is equal to or greater than(important if while running the x changes too much this will still work) the x of the wall -1 or +1 this means either side of the wall charecter and likewise for the y coordinates. so you just make an if statement for each side instance and effect code accordingly.

Re: Re: Re: RE: Game ideas

in the above comment i kind of lost my train of thought forgive me but you can substitute the matrix you made for the individual x and y coordinates and then use the loop variable to check each particular position one at a time continuously if that is possible on your calc. you may have to tweak the method some but the basics are there. i've never tried using a matrix on a calc but i have done something similar in visual basic. Another way is simply doing each check in it's own set of if then statements and that would be very cumbersome and slow if it was anything other than assembly. even then its not very good coding. if anyone else has a way to loop through the checking system i posted or any tweaks to that system im sure someone who knows more than i do will help you

I’ve been trying to understand the programming of the TI-83+ and make a game on it, (the PRGM button) but I need help! I’m trying to make something like phoenix or space invaders, and I make the ship move using L1 & L2 for the X & Y coordinates of the ship’s points on a scale of Xmin/max= -47, 47 and the Ymin/max= -31, 31. Each nme ship has 13 points, and their coordinates are stored in 2 lists, LMXNME and LMYNME, in 13-pt chunks & organized so that the ship with the highest Y-values is the 1st chunk, and the last chunk is the one with the lowest Y-values. They are plotted on plot 3 as a scatter plot. At the start of my game program, i define both plot1 & plot3, their lists, and points X & Y. I use the following for the lasers. L1/2(11) are the coordinates for the tip of the ship, V is the origin of the laser, and L is Y to keep the rest of the programming straight.
prgmFIRE
:L1(11)->Y
:L2(11)->X
:(X+4)->V
:Y->L
:For(D,V,49,1)
:Pt-On(D,L)
:(D-2)->S
:Pt-Off(S,L)
:End
:
I can't make it move/shoot at the same time, or while the laser is still on the screen. I know how to make the nme ships move/shoot, but it would create the same problem. I also want to create a save-game system, different weapons, and upgrades, but have little to no idea how to do so. Any ideas? And can someone explan the following things to me? BASIC, "sprites", ASM programming, MirageOS, ION, and what the "?" on the calculator is for. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Don't use TASM for Dos or anything like that. I use the ZDS IDE 3.x for my calc and the TI-83plus.inc file. It makes it so much easier to program for ASM, or to program ASM right on the Calc, get OTBP Assmebler. It is the best man! Just don't mess up or it'll freeze and you will have to use the reset button on the back of the calc to unfreeze or even have to pull out the main and backup batteries.
