Is it possible to have Omnicalc and Xlib installed at the same time? Because the Omnicalc greyscale tutorial says it uses xlib and Omnicalc to make the greyscale, but it doesnt let me use both at the same time. If i have omnicalc installed first and then xlib real(3 works (recall pic with xlib) but real(26,1 (getlink in omnicalc) doesnt work. The same thing happens if I install Xlib first and then Omnicalc.
Read the Documentation section of the page link you posted.
ROFL oh, it was just a normal ASM program.
I actually liked it much better then because I could use it. Nothing could make me part with my precious Omnicalc and its RAM Recovery and Fast Apps options! We love each other, yes we do my precious.
How does the RAM recover work? I've heard that it can mess up stuff. Are you sure it woln't cause glitches? If so I'll use it. :)
My precious has never messed up my calculator, only saved it. I suppose if someone backed up corrupt RAM then people might think it was Omnicalc's fault.
You need to have an 83+SE, 84+, or an 84+SE for this to work (no 83+). Those three calculators have some (normally) unused pages of RAM. Whenever you turn off your calculator Omnicalc will back up anything in the regular RAM pages to the extra ones. That way if your normal RAM is wiped you can restore it by reinstalling Omnicalc and running Real(32,1). I make it a practice to turn my calc off and on before I run a program/app that could clear my memory.
Like I said above, those "extra" RAM pages are NORMALLY unused. There are a few apps such as Msd8x that will overwrite them, so you should probably keep stuff in your archive if you plan on using Msd8x.
Btw, if you couldn't tell I like Lord of the Rings. :)
I can't use it anyways.
My calc's version letter is M so it woln't work. http://www.unitedti.org/index.php?showtopic=8913&st=180&#entry137929 is where you can find info. I'd forgotten it wouldn't work on mine anyway.
It's cool to know how it works, though.
I was just about to post that link. Last night a friend of mine mentioned that TI had gotten even cheaper, so any programs that use those extra pages don't work. This is like the "budget LCD screen" incident all over again!
(Joostin shakes fist at TI)
If you have a newer calculator, it was probably before your time. You may have heard about it, but I am going to assume you haven't and you are extremely interested. People started having problems with their LCD screens showing slanted lines in 2004 (-ish). It turned out that TI had decided to start using "budget-friendly" screens in their calculators, and when people ran asm programs their screens would become distorted, sometimes permanently. The problem went on for years, although a fix was developed for some models.
…However Ti has fixed that problem for thier newest calcs, but just before that the lowered our RAM.
