Chrono Fantasy RPG beta - the TI-68k binaries are finally available - TI-68k
Posted by Xavier on 3 May 2018, 21:05 GMT

Several months ago, Patrick "PpHd" Pélissier uploaded binaries for the Chrono Fantasy RPG for the TI-68k series, made in the early 2000s by the TimeToTeam family (TI-89/89T version, 92+/V200 version).

"CF", as it is sometimes referred to, is written in 68000 assembly, and features advanced grayscale graphics. It's one of the most complex RPGs ever written for the TI-68k series, mixing elements from several games made for other platforms. The footprint (both RAM and Flash) is significant, so you'd better archive most data - which is a good idea anyway - but the features have got to come from somewhere, right?

Sadly, the program could never be developed to the full potential intended by the team of authors, as the source code was lost many years ago when the hosting provider closed shop without a warning, taking the data away and crashing the project... Nevertheless, the (patched) binaries in this beta demo version are in good shape overall, and better than the binaries corresponding to the latest, yet older, source code available from the archives (TI-89 version, 92+ version).

Like Fer3C and SMA, featured in late 2017, Chrono Fantasy requires a so-called kernel, preferably PreOS by the same author. Hardcore fans of CF who don't need function graphing or a subset of the usual math abilities of their TI-68k calculator could even run it on PedroM instead of AMS: providing more free RAM than AMS so that CF can run more easily was rumored to be one of the background design goals for PedroM.

HTTPS support
Posted by Travis on 16 April 2018, 22:51 GMT

We have made the switch to providing encrypted HTTPS site access (via Let's Encrypt), phasing out unencrypted HTTP support. Content on the www.ticalc.org subdomain is now transferred encrypted, and URLs specifying HTTP will automatically redirect to the HTTPS protocol.

All site features should continue to operate as before, but if you happen to encounter any trouble, let us know by posting a comment or emailing us.

First official release of CEmu, the TI-84 Plus CE / 83 Premium CE emulator
Posted by Xavier on 24 February 2018, 00:54 GMT


A few days ago, CEmu version 1.0, the portable, free & open-source TI-84 Plus CE and TI-83 Extra Plus Premium CE emulator, was finally released for Windows, macOS and Linux!

It took a bit of time for this first official non-dev release version to be considered sufficiently ready for general usage (development started in late 2015). However, development builds have been available in real time for quite a long time now, and they still are. No need to compile the code yourself even for development builds :)

CEmu is particularly suited to programmers, as it provides lots of features to help CE development, and it's very customizable. Listing the whole set of features here would take way too much space, but let's at least mention the standard screen capture/recording, the built-in ROM dumper, the integrated eZ80 disassembler, the full-featured debugger, and many viewers/editors (memory, ports, stack, VAT, etc.). Oh, and also nifty functionalities like the AutoTester, a framework to have automated tests on programs (which the community CE C toolchain uses), and special memory areas that CEmu optionally intercepts in order to provide a way for programs to communicate back to the emulator (to print a string to the console, for instance). Some of these features were part of old wish lists for other community emulators, but CEmu made them a reality!

In the future, the plan is to have the following major evolutions, although not necessarily in this order: source-level debugging, a code profiler, USB emulation, Lua scripting integration, etc. Some of those are already in development now, actually. You probably won't miss them, as an update checking feature is also included in the software.

CEmu is probably the most advanced calculator emulator so far, and as already said, it's open-source, like most programs of that kind, especially in this day and age. You can visit the project on GitHub if you want to take a look at the source code (C for the core, C++/Qt for the GUI), give some feedback, report a bug, or even contribute yourself! Let's take this opportunity to congratulate the authors, contributors, and testers for their greatly appreciated work.

(Nope, the feature requests a few of you sent a few weeks ago haven't been forgotten, no worries :D)
