Julien Muchembled Releases HW2Patch v2.10
Posted by Nick on 14 June 2000, 19:23 GMT

Julien Muchembled has released HW2Patch v2.10 for the 89 and the 92 Plus. This supresses the 8/24 Kb limitation by TI. It now works on all AMS versions; including 2.01, 2.03 and the new 2.04. A version of MaxMem that works under AMS v2.04 will be released as soon as final testing is completed.

Wohoo! Now we're really socking it to 'em. Even though I have HW1, I can use maxmem, which is really cool.

That's what I don't get. If it is possible for someone to make a program that will allow you to use all of the archive space, how come TI doesn't release a AMS that will allow this? When they, TI, released AMS 2.03 they told me in an email that It wasn't possible because of the different HW version. Any answere is appreciated.

The problem with using of whole archive space on HW1 calc is nothing more that pure software check, which is screwed up by MaxMem. I really don't know why TI don't want to enable usage of full archive space on HW1 calcs. The only reason which seems logical to me is that TI wants to "prove" that HW2 calcs are "better" and "more powerful", and to force users buying HW2 calcs (which have embedded hardware protection devices).

One reason : Using 'Maxmem', you can execute programs in archive memory without copying them in RAM (if they use the apps memory) .

Will there be a AMS 2.04 24kb limitation fix for the HW 1 calcs?

if doorsos2 breaks 8kb limit under ams2.03
then a shell can break 24kb limit under ams2.04.

I tested many games under ams2.04 , I use Unios. It works perfectly, zelda89, Solar stricker, and other more-than-24kb games.

There already is. It's called a kernel.

I know about kernels, but I donĀ“t want to install a whole shell just to execute "nostub" programs without a launcher.

I, along with everyone else who upgraded to AMS 2.04, am waiting anxiously for the new MaxMem, cuz I miss that extra 350 Kb of archive space I can't use.
I was wondering...maybe someone could make a asm program which could dynamically change the amount of free RAM available to the amount of archive mem...you know...like maybe one day you only need 100 Kb of RAM and have up to 800 Kb of archive mem, or perhaps you want a greater amount of ram, like 500 kb ram and the other 400 as archive...not that I'm running out or anything, just wondering...that would be neat to have...

But the ti89 only has 256k of physical RAM, and the FlashROM can't be used as RAM. So, I guess increasing the RAM is impossible through software.

did you try with unios ? and the special libs ? because of something, the game doesn't tell you when something is missing like a lib...

I know this has been posted somewhere, i know i should try it myself... but does TeOS work on 2.04? Also, does UniOS work with archived libs?

I wonder how many (if any) people are trying to run the HW2patch on a HW1 calc and cursing the little message: You do not have a HW2 calc with AMS 2.0x ;)
You'd have to make an intuitive leap (a rather miniscule one, but one nonetheless) to realize that HW2patch means it works only on HW2 calcs since Nick didn't specifically say in the article, and I bet (because I know a few personally) there are some people out there who wouldn't understand it... some because of ignorance, some because they're just new to the whole deal of TI's fucking us over with 2 hardware versions.

How many people have actually upgraded to AMS 2.04? Also, does anyone knoe when a verson of TEOS will come out for AMS 2.04?

I didn't upgrade, but I think TEOS works.

I upgraded to AMS 2.04 on a HW1 calc. So far, using the UNIOS kernal, I have had very few problems running games. What I did was take the libraries from DoorsOS, the Kernal installation from UNIOS, and (if you choose to do so, though it causes less bugs), the shell from DoorsOS, and a lot of the games work very well. I prefer not to use the shell, because some of the programs still crash out of the shell.

As for the AMS 2.04 itself, I don't really mind it. It does regraph things to the screen faster (like the Catalog and Var-Link which were messed up for awhile) but it's generally not that bad. I can play my favorite games, and use my favorite math programs. It's all kewl.

If you use Universal OS you must use the built-in libraries. You cannot use external libraries. You are just wasting RAM (or FlashROM) having the extra set of DoorsOS libraries.

No Crashes

Ah well. I haven't crashed yet (on any game, the worst I get is an address error on two games. Street Fighter and I got one on Super Mario Quest). Until someone can write a good fix to their programs, I'll keep my arrangement.

Actually, I have a question then. I did try what you said, and deleted the external library files. But, when I tried to run the doors shell (the explorer) it said it couldn't find the Library File: filelib. (I'm sure if I had put back filelib, then it would have asked about another one.) Did I do something wrong, or do I need certain files in order to run Doors Explorer?

UniversalOS only includes util, userlib, gray4lib, gray7lib (on HW1), graphlib, and linelib. In order to use any of the other library functions, you must supply an external library. So, you'll need to put filelib and ziplib back on the calculator.

BTW, you can have the other libs on your calc; UniOS just ignores them.
