New GtkTiLink, Phoenix, TIMM Released
Posted by Eric on 6 October 2000, 21:03 GMT

A few things to report on today. Romain Liévin has released a new version of GtkTiLink v3.42 for Windows and Unix. In this version, the most significant new feature is the long-awaited ability to FLASH a TI-89. I'm sure many of you will be happy about that.

Also this should come as no surprise to many, but I'll mention it anyway: Dan Englender and Andreas Finne have released new/updated versions of their respective Phoenix ports for the TI-83 and TI-83+.

Finally, Frank Schoep has indicated that a new version of TIMM (which will give you lots of movie-making fun for the 82, 83, 83+, 85, and 86) will be released this weekend. Expect it in our archives soon.

Update (Eric): TIMM v1.2.25 is now in our archives.

'cause the 89/92/92+ version would have to be a complete rewrite... the 82/83/83+/85/86 can all use mostly one codebase... I know. This Sucks. I wanted an 89 version too!

(haven't tried the probram yet, so i don't know if this guy is using the right words...)
dithering is a way to simulate gray with only black & white, or any in-between color that's not available using colors you do have.

imagine a very small checkerboard, this could be used to simulate a 50/50 mix. it's where those little tiny speckles in gif images come from.

To be more precise, dithering describes the process of reducing the number of actual colors in an image by replacing them with colors that are close to the originals.

Tetris, not topic.

Zeljko Juric, I don't want to seem rude but when were you updating 68k tetris for hardware 2?

Forget Tetris, play Queue, trust me! it's so sweet...

     8 October 2000, 18:25 GMT

Yes it is.

I found queue and fell in love. But it does lack one thing (despite the fact that it makes up for it in every other way), link play. Kurt if you are reading this I just want to write my praise of your program being a tetris nut and having played quite a few different tetris. The only real reason I want 68k tetris ported is so I can play link play with others with other calcs. YOU THE MAN KURT!

This is Kurt. I hear you guys, linkplay would double the fun of Queue. It will happen, oh yes, it will happen.

     11 October 2000, 00:56 GMT

Oh yeah!

You the man Bubba. You the man.

I've just tried to use a QuickTime movie for the 83+ in TIMM. It doesn't work.

Just thought y'all would like to know. (.avis seem to work, though.)

How do I get Windows Media Player to play .mov and .avi so I can use those types of files too rather than just mpeg with TIMM?

I've tried TIMM, but you can't store very much on your calculator because the program files it makes are just too large! Also, it's often hard to see what's happening on the screen.

P.S. You can't store more on the 83+ than the 83, because the files can not be archived (actually, the 83 has more RAM than the 83+).

movies in memory

actually, you can play movies while they are archived.

Yeah, I'm not sure about Ion, but you can play archived movies in MirageOS.

Yeah, you can have your movies archived in ION too. If you do have them archived and run them, you'll have to garbage collect about 18.77645328 billion times.

This is a misconception. ION/Mirage etc. all have to UNarchive the program to use it. Then it REarcives it after it is done. That is why you have to Garbage Collect so much. Unarchive a program that you use alot so that you don't have to GC.
