I believe BenRyves has done control via the physical calc, but making the screens sync up is a much more challenging problem. Simply sending keypress codes is not horribly complex, although you of course need to have written the relevant libti-using computer-side program to catch incoming data.


That is what I was trying to talk to Buckeye about, nothing about screen syncing, just to be used like a gamepad for WabbitEmu.

Easy solution: confine your statements about C2I to C2I topics that talk about new progress on C2I unless it's something relevant and constructive, not "L O L O L C2I is better than gCn/Cn2.2 even though it hasn't been completed or demonstrated or written yet!". That would save any "misunderstandings".
I get it, I get it. You can stop talking about it now. Razz

I acknowledged it with my reply below.

Screen sync would be terribly slow, me thinks. For keypresses, I recall BrandonW doing something like it, but to control other calcs. (Remote8x, I think?)
Yes, he did remote-controlling other calcs via silent linking. I also write Arduino drivers that emulated a calculator sending silent-linking keypresses, so it's easily done from anything that can write the TI link protocol, including a Silverlink or Direct USB link with a properly-written program at the PC end. For writing to the screen, you'd have to have a program running on the calculator that would receive 768-byte chunks and throw them onto the screen. Based on the speed at which TI-Connect sends programs to the calculators, I believe the frame rate would be extraordinarily low.

I don't think anyone would care if they can't see it on their calculator, just the keypresses is all I see really being needed for something like this.
I hear that, but I still don't understand why that's any better than just pressing the keys on your computer. Smile

What are you more familiar with while using any sort of calculator, a real one (TI that is), or using a keyboard?

Remember, this isn't for my own use, this is for the future of gCn and also a user-friendly interface. Wink
I was only skiming this a bit so I dont know if this has been said, but will it be possible to connect a real calc to a emulated arduino by USB or do we need more documentation?

(if this has been asked/discussed, do tell so I can delete the post)
I'm equally comfortable using a computer keyboard with PTI/WabbitEmu mappings or a calculator keypad, but that's probably not true of everyone.

Maybe we should get a Poll to see what people would prefer of the 2, sound good to you?

That sounds fine to me!

@Qazz, no, it's not possible; that's what I've been telling Sonlen for a few weeks. Wink
*bump* I think I need two separate topics tomorrow, one for discussion of Cn2.2 over direct USB, and all the calculator-side and computer-side stumbling blocks, and one for discussion of my attempts to build the AVR-based USB-HID "$10 bridge" for globalCALCnet. If I forget, hopefully one of you will remind me. General nonspecific ideas and notes can still go here afterwards, and current relevant thoughts can go here as well.

Will Cn2.2 over USB allow a TI 84+(SE) to act as a gCn bridge to a computer?

Sadly, no, although perhaps I could consider that as a standalone program! No, this is more like connecting a TI-84+/SE to gCn with the direct USB cable for the sake of itself. I've already posted the "$10 bridge" topic; I'll try to post the direct USB one soon.
