Super Start v2.00
Posted On: 09/15/09

Super Start v2.00 by Greg Dietsche is out and is sporting a 3x improvement in decompression speed!

Super Start is for the TI-89, TI-92 Plus and Voyage 200 graphing calculators. It launches PPG compressed and normal (ASM and BASIC) programs, but with a twist - it does the typing for you. After selecting a program in the VAR-LINK and pasting it to the Home Screen, you need press ENTER once. Super Start will finish typing parenthesis, decompress if necessary and launch the program.

For the geeks among us, Super Start integrates nicely with Command Post Plus to provide leak watch functionality for the programs it launches.

With Super Start installed, you can delete all of your ASM launcher programs which decompress PPG programs/games.

Detached Solutions is proud to announce the official release of RoboCalc (after three short years of hibernation) by Greg Dietsche. RoboCalc is designed to lower the learning curve required to operate and program the Norland Research Robot. This program is a great addition to any classroom utilizing Norland Research's robot! With RoboCalc, students can easily control the robot using easy to remember mnemonics instead of hard to remember numbers.

We're proud to report that Graph3, one of the top rated files on ticalc.org, just got even better! Due to Martin Warmer's Summer of Code project, plus his continuing efforts, differential equation graphing support is now added to Graph3; it is now the all-in-one solution for extending the graphing capabilities of your calculator by integrating both 3D and differential equation graphers!
