This project was designed for developers. What would you like to see put into this project. If I like the idea, I will put it in the program.

What exactly would be the purpose of this? I can see level expansion packs to prebuilt games, but little other use.
I don't mean to say it's useless but I'm having trouble figuring it out.
I added some more code to the page. Those where just some examples of what could possibly be done. Besides, the "what would you like to see in this project" title was kinda asking for suggestions. What would you find helpful?
EDIT: I just realized that in this post, I said that I wouldn't want to do something like this, and would you look at that!!! I am!!!
Although I don't see much point in playing two player calculator games through computers instead of just playing two player computer games.
The high score and app shop ideas are good. Trying to think of a suggestion…
It could be possible to build some kind of onlinish game with this; you go online and download other people's character information and then can play with AI versions of them. You could even use picture variables as avatars. But that's not really a feature of the API.
I can't really think of stuff to add directly to the API — I only have ideas for what to do with it…
How about something where you can work with groups more easily, instead of deleting and replacing them every time you want a new version?
Ideas of what to do with it is good.
Then how about something like IRC?
Not a bad idea. I will take that into consideration.
So is this dead then? Checking.
Not at all, but I have been busy, so in my spare time, I've been trying to find a free way to see the bytes sent to certain devices, like the TI, to see the exact format.
I'm just busy. Maybe I will work on it this weekend. Thanks for asking though!!! Any other ideas to put in the finished program?
Okay then. I'm asking because I've noticed that people find ti-connect a bit overcomplicated to download games, and it'd be easier to just hook it up and press a button.
Yes. I am hoping to get it to where you could right-click, send it to the device, and it's there.
I need someone with experience with windows drivers, though.
maybe someone could finish that thing that Brandonw was working on? please? (i think its called msd8x. its supposed to let you open a calc as a USB drive, rather than need ticonnect)
Visit Calccrypto for info on crypto
Well, messing with the USB is hard enough, but changing the device descriptor… I don't know how brandon did that. (unless he didn't make it like a flash drive, because that's what I thought he did.)
Nothing to do with this project, though, unless you want to see the files in a normal viewer window… (likes the idea)
Anything that you would like to see in this project?
For those of you who are curious, This project is not dead. I just haven't found the time to mess with it. I will soon, though.
Is it still not dead?
This features would be necessary:
- Full access to the storage of the TI
- supports internet connection (please not the IE, otherwise the "website" would be styled separately from the program
- account function (username and password) VERY VERY IMPORTANT for the AppStore (one main reason for this program)
- highscore table (comparison to all users (On this point it is important for all of the developers to encrypt highscore-data)
I don't think that realtime-gaming over two calculators which are connected with a internet connection and two usb-cables is efficient (I just mean it would be very slow and frustrating for the user)
This feature would be amazing (and would increase the programs' success):
- Nice, userfriendly, well-explained design (I could give you a sketch if you want)
Hope that this project is not dead yet but only forgotten :)
It would take me a lot of time to integrate it into futOS, and I couldn't include it in this version
How I got to this site :D
Well, I saw in the recent edits table this project page, gave it a look and found this page. One project which gives developers new possibilities, from new social-connection features up to easier product presenting and downloading (users with low experience can get the program to and don't need the TI Connect (which isn't uncomplicated), and don't forget the ability of updates! I really don't know why this project is being neglected…

Is there any source code that I can look for, since I was thinking of using this for some of my robotics projects???
