Almost Ti85 Emulator Released

Filed under: Released software — Tags: , , , , , , — Andrew Zhilin @ 02:51

Hello there.
Today I want to announce the release of another piece of software from emu-genius Marat Fayzullin called “Almost Ti85″ (ATi85). It emulates full-functional Texas Instruments Ti85 and Ti86 calculators. Marat has asked me if I can help with image faceplates and… well, you know :)
It was very interesting to try to make skins that will be familiar to Ti owners, fit 16:10 screen of the tablets and usable same time.So here are the results:
ATi85
Hope you’ll like it, cause as more calculators will be supported – more skins will come.
Thanks for reading.

  1. This is TOTALLY AWESOME. I haven’t had a decent calculator since my ti-86 was crushed under a couch in 2000. I don’t suppose it can run ASM games?

    Also, support for keyboard input would be nice, perhaps including rotating the arrow keys to match the screen orientation.

  2. And unfortunately, like most software by Marat, it doesn’t use a FOSS license.

    It should, but not in the current version I am afraid. Have to add a proper file loader.

    The original thing is …hmmm… vertical :) You will have to
    wait for a TI92 emulator to get horizontal layout.

    I do plan on releasing the source code for ATI85, as it has no
    immediate commercial value. As for my source code not being “FOSS”,
    well, bummer :)

  5. Very cool. Only on my n800, I couldn’t switch it off easily (had to hold down the home button and kill it by tapping the X, then it didn’t clear the screen cleanly)
    I would have thought 2nd->OFF would exit the application.

    Once you install the latest version from extras, there will be a second icon in the desktop menu named “ATI86″.

    Just press the ESCAPE button (the one with the arrow).

    >I would have thought 2nd->OFF would exit the application.
    So would I, but this feature has proven to be elusive.

  7. Hey,

    Thanks for making these, they look very cool, however, they are hard to use with fingers (not impossible, just a bit hard). Could it be possible to make a new ‘skin’ and use some of the empty space to make the keys bigger?

    Thanks!

  8. [...] a great year, I’ve, as always, helped various unique projects, such as Mnemosyne, BlueMaemo, Ati85 and even Mer. You can even see some of my UI ideas for Fremantle live [...]
