First TI-84 Plus CE Assembly Games Arrive
Published by KermMartian on June 22, 2015 at 5:12:45 PM CST | Discuss this article (3)
The TI-84 Plus CE has only started arriving in retail stores in the past month, but already the industrious members of Cemetech have been exploring programming on the new calculator. Three of our esteemed assembly programmers, MateoConLechuga, DrDnar, and Patrick Davidson, have released assembly games for the TI-84 Plus CE based on their impressive programming work for the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition. All three authors have created nostub (shell-free) programs, as despite the many requests for Doors CSE for the TI-84 Plus CE, we do not yet have an App key to be able to make Doors CSE and other Apps for the TI-84 Plus CE. Without further ado, the three authors' impressive creations, along with the downloadable files for each:
Congratulations to these Cemetech members and their impressive assembly programming work for the TI-84 Plus CE and TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition. We're excited to see what new TI-84 Plus CE games, educational programs, and utilities will be created this summer.

So, once again it is time to feature some of the projects our members have posted to Cemetech, so no one misses out on some cool things. Sadly, for me this month was fraught with personal problems, so time and energy to work on this was pretty much non-existent. I've done my best to go through the lists and read up on what you all have been working on. I hope I've caught most of the projects to post. You'll notice that much of the activity centers on TI-84 Plus CE projects, which we're happy to see; we look forward to seeing what people create for the new calculator over the summer.
And without further ado:
And that's a wrap for this past month's project list! As we all move on into the summer months, we hope that you will all be able to find some time to work on projects and keep us updated on them, especially so I have something to write about!
Exclusive: C Programming on the TI-84 Plus CE

Since the introduction of the TI-84 Plus CE at the beginning of this year, there has been speculation in the community that the new device would support easy C programming. The z80 processor in the older TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus was ill-suited to C programming, but the ez80 in the new calculator is even targeted by a C compiler available from Zilog for free. Our suspicions were further confirmed by the presence of IEEE754 floating-point routines embedded within the calculator's software; the TI-OS has never contained such support before. Finally, we saw demos of very well-made C applications for the TI-84 Plus CE at the T^3 2015 conference, so it was only a matter of time before the community got the ability to create C programs.
Of course, actually putting together the tooling and documentation to teach people to create TI-84 Plus CE programs in C is no mean feat, and happily, Cemetech programmer extraordinaire MateoConLechuga has put in that effort. Today, Mateo shared an in-depth tutorial on C programming for the TI-84 Plus CE with us, and it's just as thorough and helpful as we'd expect from someone who has earned the "Cemetech Expert" rank. Mateo has outlined the steps to install Zilog's C compiler, set up the necessary project settings to create TI-84 Plus CE programs, converting compiled binaries to .8xp programs, and even included a sample program that prints and manipulates strings and numbers. Mateo ends with thoughts and questions on how things like graphics, file manipulation, and so on should work, so I encourage you to visit the topic, try the tutorial, and contribute to the discussion. Congratulations to Mateo for getting this important chapter in the community's programming efforts underway!
Compiling C for the TI-84 Plus CE
Doors CSE 8.2 Released
Published by KermMartian on May 19, 2015 at 11:14:45 AM CST | Discuss this article (6)
Since version 8.0 in November 2013, Doors CSE has been a mainstay on many TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition graphing calculators. This powerful shell is an App that sits on top of the TI-OS, allowing users to create and run powerful TI-BASIC and assembly programs while leaving the math and science capabilities of the calculator untouched. Over the year and a half since Doors CSE 8.0 was released, Patrick "tr1p1ea" Prendergast and I have been working hard to field feature requests and bug reports to improve Doors CSE. The release of Doors CSE 8.1 last July brought features like a special Apps folder that allows you to list and run Apps on your calculator, more xLIBC hybrid TI-BASIC functions, and many fixes for minor bugs. Now, I'm happy to present Doors CSE 8.2, the next iteration of Doors CSE for the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition.
Doors CSE 8.2 focuses on improving Doors CSE's interaction with the TI-OS and with other Apps. But what exactly is Doors CSE 8? Doors CSE lists and can run all of your TI-BASIC and Assembly games and programs. It lets you organize your programs into folders, and archive, lock, copy, rename, delete, and hide them. It gives you extra features like an enhanced TI-BASIC editor, a clock, lowercase letters, and much more. Doors CSE 8 also contains the powerful xLIBC library by Patrick Prendergast and Celtic 2 CSE, which will make color TI-BASIC programs and games more powerful, useful, and fun. Here's what's new:
