TI Releases AMS 2.05 and Other FLASH Applications
Posted by Eric on 25 July 2000, 18:55 GMT

Michael Michaelson sends the news that TI has released AMS 2.05 for the TI-89 and TI-92+. This new rom version apparently fixes some memory bugs while viewing locked or archived programs.

Other FLASH applications such as Finance (free), Statistics with List Editor v1.01 (free), Cabri Geometry v2.02($30), and Geometer's Sketchpad® v1.02($30) have also been released.

Download all these applications for the TI-89 and TI-92+.

*putting on my asbestos underwear* Ahh, this is why I do z80 assembly. If it works for my calc, it works for everyone else's =)

That is wise. However, your programs are far more limited by the screen resolution.

I think it's a fair tradeoff: Crappy res for guaranteed program stability on other calcs =)

Dont worry - TI will fix you up pretty soon. Just wait for a ti-86 plus or something :)

The way TI is making graphing calcs it's almost guaranteed that the next model will be a Ti-86 Plus

Yes I do know what I'm taking about I have a Ti-82/83/83p/85/86/89

I asked them about a TI-86+ a couple of months ago and they said there were no plans for one, but I can't believe the 85/86 series won't ever have flash, so it will probably be a TI-87. By the way, I have the following: 83/85/86/89 and carry them almost everywhere with me. That might explain why I'm my precalc class's calculator tech support guy...

hehehe, tech support, that's funny!

But really it only seems logical for them to come out with the Ti-86+. Maybe they just denied it because they hadn't publically announced it's coming?

I'm actually starting to lean away from these things that have been my sole purpose of survival the last few years...Of course it might be because I'm getting ready to start my own bussiness and/or Stress related?

Well, enjoy the new AMS if it works, I don't know haven't tried it yet.

And check out my site (if you dare see such evil things!)

The NExt Calc will be the Voyage 200 along with a keyboard that works with almost all calcs

Just thought I'd mention that if you own a 92+, the geometry programs can be downloaded for free. You just have to pay if you're getting the 89 version.

Interesting that again, they have a crazy "July 5, 2000" date attached to the upgrade. Those programmers must be hoping that the exec's don't notice this puzzle, because I'm 99.999999% sure that it wasn't there 20 days ago.

I suppose they don't do it in order to disturb us, and they needed some days to test that everything is fine enough to be released. However, if they have to release a new version every month fixing bugs I think there's something wrong with those tests.

However, I'm really angry for the HW1 half-archive issue. Why the hell don't they allow full archive usage on the recently released AMS's?? They've seen that it can be easily broken so I don't see the point of maintaining that stupid limitation...

Yeah, something must have happened, because some people were able to download it earlier! They'll probably have it back up in a few hours.

Go to TI-FR, click the obvious equivalent to ticalc.org's discuss under the news item with 2.05 in it, and click on one of the links there, I think around the 7th message.

Hmmm......maybe TI took it down for a reason. Maybe they found a major bug in it, or something. I'm not gonna download it until that link is fixed.

Bug Explaination
Brian Maxwell  Account Info

TI failed to explain the bug that AMS 2.04 has all the way. The "Protected Memory Violation" error (loop) only occurs when the program is archived. When it's locked it just corrupts all the other programs in the folder that program you opened is located in. This bug is also only triggered off when the program isn't tokenized.

Geometer's Sketchpad???
Matty500  Account Info

Um, sorry, but is that REALLY a new release, I bought it a while ago & as far as I can tell I got version 1.3, but he says 1.2 was just released...what's up?

Cabri 2.02 and Geometer's Sketchpad 1.02 are for the TI-92 Plus...
For the TI-89 there is Cabri 2.03 and Sketchpad (no version #, so I'm assuming 1.0)... speaking of these programs, which one is better Cabri or Sketchpad? I have an 89 and am debating which one I should buy... any input that might help me make a decision is thanked for... I'm not gunna get both because I don't think there is enough FLASH ROM for both programs... thx for any input...

Geometer's Sketchpad is MUCH better than cabri. Sketchpad allows for what they call "dynamic geometry" where you can take certain points and animate it. this lets you trace the path that an object can move in. It's really useful...cabri's only really good for euclidean (sp) sketches, which sketchpad does a much better job of, unless anyone can correct me on that

And sketchpad's smaller than Cabri, so you can have both sketchpad and statsle installed at the same time... cabri's too big.
