Assembly Coder's Zenith News
Posted by Kirk on 20 April 1999, 22:28 GMT

The ACZ has announced that they will start selling calculators on their site. The prices that the ACZ charges are similar to those of Dimension-TI.

Additionally, Rusty Wagner of the ACZ has released Virtual TI v2.0 Alpha 3, an emulator for the TI-82, 83, 85, 86, 89, 92, 92 II, and 92 Plus. Features which set it apart from other emulators include linking between multiple instances of the program and improved debugging features. Some of these new debugging features include replacing ROM calls with their respective aliases and panes listing the variables/handles on the calculator.

Re: Assembly Coder''s Zenith

Since I had the opportunity to post the first reply, i would like to take a moment to apologize for all of my rude and innapropriate comments regarding the Bryan incedent. I admit I was having too much fun bashing on ticalc.org, and just gloating in my own attacks. I am sorry.

Does anyone know if there are any good emulators for the newer calculators for the Macintosh? I see there are several decent emulators for PC's, but none that are really good (or recent) for Macs. If you know where to get any, please respond and let me know. Thanks!

The source code for VTI is available for download. The emulator is so well written (what I gathered from talking to Rusty) that it should be easy to port to Mac or another platform. Everything is object oriented and handled by virtual functions (even memory access is handled by a sub-class!).

Of course, not having looked at the source myself, I cannot be certain. This might make it easier to add support for new calcs than to port the emulator. But I would assume that it would be much easier to port an existing emulator than to write a new one.

You can find several TI and HP calculator emulators (including Mac ones) at Zophar's Domain (zophar.net) and Emulation Camp (emucamp.com).

ACZ - calc sales
(Web Page)

I noticed that ACZ online calc sales did not have SSL. Is anyone else somewhat concerned about this?

Re: ACZ - calc sales

I noticed the call they TI GL link a "serial" link, when I always thought the GL that TI sells is a parallel port one. I thought:
25 pins= parallel port
9 pins= serial port.
I also dont quite understand the USB GL thing......I wonder how fast it really will be......

There is also such thing as a 25 pin serial port. Only older computers have them.

Both my computers are relitivly new, and both my computers have 1 25 pin serial port, and 1 9 pin serial port. There is no official confirmation of the usb graphlink, but that sure would be nice...

Yes, I noticed this too. If you are concerned with security, as I and many others are, you should probably order from http://www.calc.org/, which has comparable prices AND a secure ordering form with SSL.

ACZ Newsgroup

I'd also like to announce that ACZ now has a newsgroup, which is a useful alternative to mailing lists and the sort, because you can exchange messages and post programs without disrupting the flow of e-mail. Our news-server is located at: acz.org

For more information just check out www.acz.org

Re: Assembly Coder''s Zenith News

just another plus for the ti community

Re: Re: Assembly Coder''s Zenith News

Hehe. Do you still think ACZ is a competitor of ticalc.org? Hehe it's the farthest thing from it.

Re: Re: Re: Assembly Coder''s Zenith News

Haven't ACZ taken over ticalc or something?

If you were really wondering, it was an April Fool's joke. If you were just kidding, then I'm gullible.

This is the best TI utility that i have ever seen. It is amazing. It runs flawlessly and dramaticaly improves the time involved in developing the game, not only by the speed and accessablity, but by the complex debugger

Re: Assembly Coder''s Zenith News

I love the emulator. It is quite simply the best teh I have evr seen, in all aspects. I especially love the TI-92 part. I've always wanted to try a good TI-92 emulator, and this is the best I've ever seen. I don't personally have a TI-92, but this is identical to the one I saw about a year ago. I don't think it could get much better.

Congratulations to Rusty Wagner for making such a superior emulator! I take my hat off to you!

Re: Assembly Coder''s Zenith News

Hi, I am wondering what program for the computer you have to use to recieve a TI-86 Rom? I got the romdumper on my calc, but I can't figure out how to get it download the rom to the computer.

BTW, the 89 emulation is really good!

To Ti-xx users:
Emulators without ROM are useless. If you want to download the ROM off your calc, go to my site to get the ROM receivers.

Re: Re: Assembly Coder''s Zenith News

Speaking of ROMS though, where did you get the TI-89 one? Do you have an 89? If so, cool. If not, tell me the site.

     23 April 1999, 04:55 GMT

Re: Re: Re: Assembly Coder''s Zenith News

I own an 89, if you want an 89 ROM, just go out and buy a TI-89.
