“Calcsys” is absolutely incredible. It allows you to do many things that aren't automatically enabled. Smart people can use the Hex Editor to find passwords to programs such as “MirageOS”. You can also use it to enable/disable system flags and thus do stuff like draw fast (but slightly inaccurate) circles. It includes other marvelous functions, such as Protect/Unprotect programs, and "1001 ways to reset your ram." I would recommend this program to all those who are obsessed with their calculator. Then again, that applies to just about everyone.
Functions: 10/10 - Allows you to do all kinds of fun stuff
Value: 10/10 - You can reset your ram with it
Tilt: 10/10 - Incredible program
Overall: 10/10

"Calcsys" is absolutely incredible It is the first one and the best in the TI-83 Plus series. With "Calcsys" you can lock/unlock programs, rename assembly programs, edit assembly programs (Especially high scores), lists, strings, and much more. You could even make your own programs with it.

It also has all the system flags and monitors located inside. There is a hidden game inside the console. Go to console and type "smile", guess the number in hex form. 00 - ff. Download this, you wont be disappointed. In general, this is for advanced users.

Overall 10/10

In my opinion, this program is for advanced users only. It's a good program if your wanting to edit the VAT or do other advanced things (including the geek way to turn on lower case). The Hex Editor and decompiler are very cool as well. This also has some fun this you can do, check out the cool.txt file that goes along with the package.

Also, be sure to read the instructions! Or else you'll find yourself with "RAM Cleared" message when you play with something.

Also check out the Calcsys forum for other fun stuff to do with it http://www.detachedsolutions.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=4

Good News: Great for developers and advanced 83 Plus users. Full of features.

Bad News: Overwhelming interface for novice calculator users. Not for the faint of heart.

Overall opinion: 5/5

CalcSys v1.3 is absolutely incredible. I put it on my TI-83+ Silver Edition, not sure if it was going to be useful to me or not. I was very surprised at how much you can really do with it. CalcSys has so many features and is a great convenience for me, since I program on calculator. I found out that I can lock and unlock my programs, which is easier and faster than doing on my computer, and I can easily enable lowercase. But that's not all it can do, I just can't list everything this APP can really do. Overall, if I was rating this file on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being highest, I would definitely give it a 10. It is a very useful program that I suggest anybody try.
