Actually, before I ask how to obtain one, I'll ask for any advice. My usb port on my calc isn't really working. The computer can recognizes it, but it can't communicate with it. I can send and receive stuff with it, using the LINK menu, but I have to use my serial port to play multiplayer games. I thought it was my usb port was corrupting, and so I used it for an excuse to buy another TI-84+se, but it still doesn't work! My theory is that my unit-to-unit cable is bad, but a flaw in that theory is that the computer doesn't communicate with it either. So… if you think it is my cable, where can I get one? If not, what are your theories?
oh, I have another theory. maybe my usb driver is wacky.
Well you never can use the usb cable to play multilayer games to begin with. It just doesn't work.
Here are some steps (print and check off as you go! :P)
|Re-install driver on computer (especially if you use windows)|
|Try on a different computer, if possible|
|Buy a new cable|
i'm talking asm games like falldown and battleship
I think that's what builderboy is referring to. You have to remember that the majority of TI-83+ assembly games on ticalc.org were released long before the TI-84+ and TI-84+SE came out, so they probably aren't going to work very well (or at all) with multiplayer. Unfortunately, unless you know assembly, there is nothing you can really do to fix it.
Indeed, the usb cable has many problems also, with implementation with assembly. It is a lot harder, and not all calculators have a usb cable, so pretty much every single multiplayer game is made using the i/o port.
my friend says he uses his usb cable for the same game; in fact, i got the game from his calc!
What's the game?
