I have long had a goal to start up development on Doors CS 7 after the completion of my Master's thesis, and with the final copy handed in to the Office of the Dean of Engineering and my defense looming in two weeks, I've started to pick at the neglected monstrosity that is the Doors CS 6.2 source code. The major updates will encompass planned XLib/Celtic III support built in, lots of stability fixes, and folder backups, among many others. Yesterday I fixed a few bugs related to pulling the RunProg subsystem out of the rest of the code so it can be used as an entrypoint for better MirageOS and USB8x compatibility, and today I replaced the About screen with a GUIfied version for Doors CS 7. Screenshots of the prototype drawn in paint (left) and the new About window in action (right) are below. Please stop by and keep up with my development progress, and keep in mind that until school is over in earnest for me in three weeks there won't be that much progress. I'll try to keep my DCS7 signature updated accordingly.

Finally!
YAY! Very Happy
Doors CS 7 time!
Yay, this is good news Smile
Thank you SirCmpwn and Elfprince13. This afternoon I added the MemoryPop function, just like the InfoPop window that shows file size and description when you hover over programs. MemoryPop shows the free and total RAM and ROM on the calculator; it has been crossed off as item 24 on Xeno_Cre8or's Doors CS 7 Features list on the Doors CS wiki. Screenshot below.



Doors CS 7 sauce.

Right, because that's the way to motivate someone who volunteers thousands of hours of their lives to writing calculator programs instead of working on school projects and his Masters thesis, relaxing, or doing monumental romantic things for his girlfriend.

On a less-sarcastic side note, I was unable to duplicate the problems I was having when I loaded up a fresh copy of 6.2 on a newly-reset TI-83+.

Well, that's totally a higher priority than DCS7. Take your time, Kerm Smile .... wait...

That makes half the admins Wink And AlienCC (the guy who ran UnitedTI for *ages*) is married, which is a large part of why he doesn't run it anymore.
Oooohh, is that an iconized taskbar? Might DCS7 have multiwindow management?

If it's not too much why not make it look a little prettier?I've been toying with the source to DCS5 and would happily contribute my modified artwork.

Sadly, no. Those just happen to be shortcuts to programs or folders(?) That way a commonly-used prog can be activated from anywhere.

Haha! Let us hope this one handles negative numbers better than the last few! Laughing
