Assembly Arrives to the TI-73
Posted by Magnus on 16 March 2005, 21:04 GMT

Michael Vincent has released Mallard, the first assembly shell for the TI-73. Until now, the 73 was limited to only BASIC and flash applications. Mallard v0.1 requires a TI-73 or TI-73 Explorer running OS 1.60. It is installed via a hacked backup file, similar to the great 85 ZShell. Because TI Connect does not properly handle 73 backup files, TiLP is required for installation. Mallard is currently an experimental beta version; it may still be unstable.

We have also added 73 ASM folders to our archives.

Update: Mallard v0.2 has been released.

THERE IS NOW A YAHOO GROUP FOR MALLARD USERS AND DEVELOPMENT. See link above. This was created by a 3rd party (me) and is is not (yet?) affiliated with Mallard's creator, Michael Vincent.

Why are people porting ZTetris when ZTris is clearly a superior game?

Maybe because it's link-compatible with the TI-89/92+/V200, assuming the link works at all on the TI-73 (AFAIK, there are problems on the TI-83+ SE and the 84+ series due to the hardware assist).

I'd gladly trade 89 link compatibilty for 1k less memory usage...

Obviously he's not the only one: I've ported SubHunt, ZTetris, Chess Master, and SSJ Rage. ZCasino soon to come, along with others...

I think it is great that TI-73s are able to have assembly programs. I don't have one (I have a TI-83 Plus and TI-86) but I think it is interesting anyway. Wonder when the first programs will be coming out. Perhaps shells will be following the programs shortly.
