Not a necropost as it meets 2 conditions: It is on the discussion section of a page, and it provides relevant or new information

Re: More Updates Needed by TrenlyTrenly, 23 Sep 2017 03:21

I hope this doesn't count as a necropost, but as of OS 5.3, the commands need to be updated and categorized by OS (compatibility issues). That way, it's organized just like the Black and White section.

More Updates Needed by BattlesquidBattlesquid, 23 Sep 2017 03:14

That's ok, we're all here to help each other! I know that there are so many things I am yet to learn :D

EDIT: Myles, do you think you could help to finish the piecewise command (if you can)? I was thinking that that the Command Index would need some updating (and I see that kg583kg583 has already started :)

Well, I didn't know that. I'm still relatively new to TI-Basic (I haven't even been here for a year yet), so there's quite a bit that I don't know. Most of the other regulars are much better programmers than I currently am.

Wow! I mean, WOW!. TI just changed the game for programming! As someone who programs solely on my actual calc, this is a fantastic set of updates. The new commenting system does seem a little unnecessary considering that it was doable before and wastes value space in a program, but hey, at least you don't Asm( to run hex codes anymore.


The solution to a complex problem is often a simple answer.

How long did it take burr to make this site?

Amen.
(This is a big thing in 9th grade, everyone says 'Amen' to everything funny.)
And, this update makes me want to get the CE even more. I have $27 in my savings, and I have lots of work to do…
My goal: To get the CE by the end of the year.
20.803% of my goal met.
$103.74 left to save.

Will TI update the 2.42 OS for the 84+?

I really wish Amazon could make the TI-84 Plus CE a lot cheaper than it really is.

Using " to start a comment in code has been known for… ummm… over 10 years. The first mention of it I found on TI|BD was on the comments page which burrburr created in 2007. When I viewed the original page under the page revisions, that method of commenting was still there.

Re: New CE OS by TrenlyTrenly, 23 Sep 2017 02:15

And that's what's Texas Instruments is truly lacking, they cannot just make a programing language and give out little to basic amount of information to the public. And that's where great sites come in such as, TI-Basic developer, cemetech, TI-Planet, 68K Developer, etc. Without sites like these, programing advanced BASIC codes would be complicated.

I can truly agree with you, I once accidentally erased a line of code. And had to redo it all over again. So with this update or add on, I believe that TI heard our needs & prayers:)

Re: New CE OS by AbduBasheerAbduBasheer, 23 Sep 2017 01:25

Haven't we been able to comment that way the whole time? It just looks like a string…using "//" just makes sure that nobody mistakes a comment using quotation marks for actual code to be typed in (plus "//" is more commonly known as a comment than quotation marks).

Also, "//" can't be used in TI Basic, unless TI made CE's more special and allowed for that (I cry :P).

Texas Instruments does teach some Basic, but it's really generic, and lacks a good amount of information.

And, yep, they probably don't want to pay people to teach TI Basic. That realization made me laugh :D

Re: New CE OS by BattlesquidBattlesquid, 23 Sep 2017 01:21

After brief testing, the 'Undo' is actually an "Undo Clear." In other words, if you clear a line that read

Prompt L,W,H

and then selected "Undo Clear," the editor will place the cleared line of code (Prompt L,W,H) on a new line. This could be helpful for whenever I accidentally erase a line, but that was confusing at first.

Wow very efficient, the copy/paste & undo parts are a great add on to the system. What are they going to think of next?

Re: New CE OS by AbduBasheerAbduBasheer, 23 Sep 2017 01:00

Yeah, that'll save a ton of time. Those features already existed in TI-Connect's program editor, but it certainly helps to have them on the calculator itself.

Re: New CE OS by Myles_ZadokMyles_Zadok, 23 Sep 2017 00:55

These really look like some great improvements. Especially copy/paste and undo in the TI-BASIC editor.

Re: New CE OS by jonbushjonbush, 23 Sep 2017 00:50

Gosh, I must really be out of the news loop…

Yeah, I kind of find it sad that TI doesn't seem to try to teach TI-Basic. Although, they may think that we're doing such a good job for free that they don't have to pay people to teach it. :)

EDIT: Just got the OS on my calculator, and the thing that immediately stands out to me is the ability to comment within a program. Comments get placed on their own lines and look like this:

:Prompt L,W,H
:"New Comment  // Versus our method of commenting
:Disp "VOLUME",LWH

Apparently, TI has an opinion on how comments are supposed to look in TI-Basic. Optimization-wise, our method is better, because it takes up less space to have no comments in the programs themselves.

I was already informed of this by Adriweb a couple weeks ago (perhaps last week). Seems great, TI seems to be emulating the menu styles of the 89T (which is very organized in my opinion), so I like it! Pushes me even further to want to get a CE :)

Now all they need to do is be more proactive in actually teaching TI-Basic ;P

Re: New CE OS by BattlesquidBattlesquid, 23 Sep 2017 00:32

I fired up TI-Connect CE because I was going to post about something else, but then TI-Connect CE informed me that a new OS was available. You can view Texas Instruments' page about this here, which contains a link to a PDF detailing all the new programming stuff (they even updated the editor itself), including a new submenu under [2nd] [test]. Go check it out, and tell me your thoughts.

New CE OS by Myles_ZadokMyles_Zadok, 23 Sep 2017 00:22

I'll guess I'll use max( then for my nee game: MazeX RunnersZ


The real Bio_Hazard1282

Thank you. But, I have a TI-84 Plus, version 2.42.
Is there one for the monochrome versions?
