Misinterpreting Program Types

Hello! No need to take this too seriously, as this is a problem I've been having with games... The majority of Mirage and Ion games that I have downloaded were not recognized by the MirageOS application. Doors CS 6 recognized these programs, but displayed them inaccurately as TI Basic programs, giving me Error 504 (Not Enough Mem) when I tried to run them. The only programs I've had success with are Ztris by Tijl Cootman, Asteroids by Joe Pumberton, Nightblade, and Megaman by Paul Marks. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Many times it all as to do with how much memory you actually have. the more games the less memory, and if you use too much memeory on the actuall files it doesnt have enough to run games, to free up space either delete some files or archive them (archiving renders them unuseable untill u rearchive them) but archiving has alot more space

also some games are not compatible with mirage os or ti 84

hope this helped

I need to delete a program that has an admin password

You have to re-install for instance; Mirage OS and, have Mirage OS uninstall itself. Your calculator will be locked up if you don't. It is almost impossible to fix. I was lucky one time that, I was able to re-install it to have it take itself off.

Long delay/ the buttons do not work

The games you installed (or at least one of them is still in memory. Clear the memory and archive the games you do not play, it will free memory.
Press [2nd][MEM] [2:Mem Mgmt/Del] [7:PGRM]. A list of programs is displayed. To archive a program highlight it and press [ENTER]. An asterisk appears to the left of the program name. To exit press [2nd][QUIT] or just [CLEAR] and you will return to Home screen.
Hope it helps.

How do i manualy program games to my ti-83 plus calculator

Programs in general can be typed in the calculator [PGRM] --> [EXEC] [EDIT] [NEW]
[EXEC] : to execute a program already in the calculator
[EDIT] :to modify an existing program (open a program you select and allows you to modify it)
[NEW] : opens a fresh page where you can enter the name you give your program, then enter the instructions you want it to execute when it runs.

You can also transfer games that are on another calculator via a calc-to-calc cable, or use the TIconnect software to transfer TI83 games from your computer to the calculator. If you need instructions on how to transfer files post a request here and someone will be happy to show you how.

Hope it helps.

Protect program

If you can upload it to the computer, you can open it with prgm editers, and they should have a selection for protecting the prgm. The editer i used was TI-program editer, unfortunately, new windows updates made that program impossible to use on Windows XP and TI didn't update it or anything so yeah...I don't know about vista though, you can try that. Another way is to open the file through Mirage OS and 'lock' the program. To make basic prgms visible in mirage, simply put a : at the very first line. The problem with this method is that anyone with Mirage can unlock it and change it...

TI Connect problem with Mirage OS

It is possuble that you have run out of archive space. To clear some up, press 2ND - MEM (the + key), 2 then 1. This will give you a list of all things on your calculator. Some of these may be neccessary for some math courses, but you can always put them back on later, so you can remove anything you want from here without any irreversable effects. Delete anything you don't need (excluding the games and Mirage, of course) by moving next to it with the up and down arrow keys and pressing the DEL key.

Is there a way to play games and put in a password on a TI-83 plus?

Yes, there is. There is a program called mirage os and another one but i forgot the name. You should google it to find online. You need to have ti connect which you can get it off the ti website. Well mirage os can have a password by pressing alpha in it. Also in order to have a password to turn it on you would need to go to mirage and then press on and then it should turn off. To program you would need to know assembly or ti basic (they are basically the same language). To start programming he would need to press the prgm button and the options are reached by pressing the prgm button again.

My calculator is working well but only one button isn't working ; Memory I press 2nd , then + (MEM). But it doesn't work. + button does work and 2nd key works with other button.

I KNOW exactly what is wrong i had the same problem. you put a program like mirage or another application o your program on your calculator. no kids don't want teachers to deleter their games so mirage has a memory blocker. go into mirage then hit alpha then go to like protection options and stuff and turn off memory block. GOOD LUCK
