I want to put the number sign (#) on my ti84 and I don't know how to. Do I have to download a program to give me access to extra characters or can I do it some other way?

The following applies to the TI-83+/84+ series of calculators. This excludes the regular TI-83 and the new TI-84+ CSE (the color model).
For that character, you will need an external program. If you want, you can use the following assembly program to convert a string of hexadecimal digits into tokens:
EFD74AFE04C0 EB4E2346 CB38CB19 2B71237023 545DC5 CDBB9D CDBB9D EDA1EAAB9D D1EF5743C9 1AFE3A3802D60713ED6FC9
If you aren't familiar with inputing hex codes, you can check the hexcodes page.
After this, you need to know the hex number associated with the token #. In this case it is a 2-byte token and can be found on the miscellaneous tokens page. The token is "BBD2" so one you have the above asm program typed in, you can do the following on the homescreen:
"BBD2":Asm(prgmHEX ;or whatever the program name was
Now Ans will have a string that is the token. You can open your program now and use the Rcl function to paste the contents of Ans (the key sequence is [2nd][sto][2nd][(-)]).
47%? Take a look and try to imagine how cool 100% will be. This has won zContest 2011 and made news on TICalc. This compromise between Assembly and BASIC parses like BASIC and is fast like assembly. Grammer 2
Would that have to be an 8x8 sprite?
And aren't there programs you can download that have special characters in a string?
