i can make them.
but heres how:
go to ticalc.org
download vti and vti capture
set up vti capture
run vti
get ready to run the prgm
start vti capture catpuring the vti
rum the prgm
stop vti capture
proudly sport the .gif image
two of mine:
www.freewebs.com/robophoenix/hangman2.gif
www.freewebs.com/robophoenix/pong2.gif

note: vti capture makes them look like their running faster than they really are Smile take a look at the run indicatior VERY carefully in my pics.

also, if you look at the hangman, its been ported to the graphscreen and im working on the little man figure that gets hung if you miss too many times

Hey, could I put those in WinTI? You'd need to make some slight modifications so they'd run under the shell, but they'd look and act just the same. And you'll get all the credit for them, too.

When the program ends, GDB1 needs to be loaded and A needs to equal 1. That's pretty much it. There are some variables that can't be used, so let me know what the program uses and i'll tell you which need to be changed.

pong:
L(theta)PONG,e,f,g,h,(theta),a,b,c,d,z,s,v

hangman:
Str0,b,c,Str9,a,e,d,Str8,Str1,w,Str2,h,

hangman works, but im still adding some graphix, so can youi tell me what variables i cant use?

also, im starting work again (it got deleted when my calc batteries ran out) on my shell, DragonOS. it will run nostub asm and basic, when running prgms, use variables, pic7 and Str5, and WILL HAVE FILE STRUCTURE! aka, folders w/ nested folders and unhackable password Smile Cool it will also have mouse, clickable icons, windows (not to be confused with that horrible os), screen savers, a text editor,powerdown,etc. the goal is so that you only have to shut down the os to load file onto your calc from your comp, make a prgm or to, run an app (unless someone has a asm prgm that can do that) Wacko <- what ill be like when im done

str0, str1, & str2 are in use by my program.
str0=registry
str1-3=Hi-Lo High Scores
L(WINTI)=WinTI system file
L(HILO)=Hi-Lo system file
L(STDWN)=err:break protection

Anything your program needs to leave behind when it's finished should be placed in L(PONG) / L(HANG) with the exception of text.

Good luck with that OS! It looks like it may even out-do wallsXP 8)

My OS is nowhere near that complicated. Unfortunatly, I still can't figure out how to make an idiot-proof program installation process. So far I got nothing. You have any ideas?

what my installation prgm would do:
disp splash screen (wait for key press)
ask if you want a password
if u want a pw, provide input
copy files (aka, you calc's harddrive, with the file structure, consist of Str5) into ram
delete install prgm so a hacker cant rerun it and change the password

screensaver, apd time, and other settings are configurable from the shell
custom background can be kept in pic7 and will be loaded on startup
icons and mouse cursor are modifiable (strings are kept in prgm(theta)ICON
you calc's ID# ([2nd] + [mem] + [1]) is encryped the same as the pw and stored in the file system, so that noone can steal your file structure and copy files out of it (you can store data in it, and as long as the hacker doenst manually look at the str5, the data will be safe)

i will probably move the data in L(theta)DROS to the file system for easy recall and harder changing of the data by hackers...

ill post a screen shot of the prgm so far when i get back home...
and ill say where and what for i used the asm prgm so you know what ive done in basic...

also, i might move this topic to "start your project", depending on where it goes topic wise...

winTI will be a BASIC OS (read: no ASM) that will be able to do stuff you thought you could only do in ASM Wink I'm going to try and make an idiot-proof installation process, but it's hit several snags. My origonal idea: input from user: Program ID. (NAME,type,#of DLL's). Store to a string: [NAME=NAME TYPE=type DLL's=#of DLL's] Only problem: you can't run a program from a string. expr("prgmNAME") does not work!!! Someone help me! (please...?)

if you go asm i can give you a prgm that runs the prgm whos name is in Str0
ex:
"DRAGONOS->Str0
Asm(prgmZRUN

it will run the prgm, basic or nostub asm, and copy it into ram if it is inarchive, deleting the copy when done...

y? cant you take the substring b4 you put it into Str0?
like Str0->Str9
sub(Str9,1,16->Str0
Asm(prgmZRUN
Str9->Str0

click on the geek code in my sig to go to a site about it
it basically represents how geeky you are (being a geek is not bad, as some ppl might consider us calc geeks, but that isnt bad, now is it? )

Yes, but that would take up even more space than is necissary. I'll just make it non-idiot proof.

well, if you run a prgm from zrun, it doesnt have to be in ram Smile
DragonOS will only have prgmDRAGONOS, prgm(theta)RUN, and prgm(theta)PTOOLS (for archive/unarchive/delete purposes) in ram while the prgm is running.
occationally, when i run prgm(theta)RUN, it will copy the prgm i want it to run from archive into prgmN146 (i think that is the name) in ram, then delete the prgmN146 from ram when done. only prob: if the prgm is basic and returns an error, the calc will leak an amount of ram equivilant of the size of the prgm, which will not be recovered until the ram is reset.
