Re: Who uses the 43S simulator under Windows, Linux, or on a Mac?

Win 10 & Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - both 64bit - here. IMO it's great to follow the development and witness the steps to completion ... Later, the simulator will be a great companion to the calculator in hardware ;) Installation of the 43S simulator under Windows is easy in my eyes, if instructions in the ...

Re: 43S News

measuring the size of your WP43S simulator window as it is right now 1000 x 568 px Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Unity standard desktop, notebook with screen resolution of 1366x768 px (≈WXGA, not ≥ full HD).

Re: My DM42 Is lost

My booksized parcel 📦 from California arrived here in Germany luckily finally just before Pentecost. Sent with USPS it took 2½ months. → One has to be patient these days ... ✈️ A nearly empty 787 must have been a bit eerie indeed. Nevertheless this plane is one of the few running that provide higher...

Re: 43S News

Hi, WP43S is easy to install & running fine on Win10 following your instructions in the "README.MD" . ✓ Transfering the installed & working WP43S.exe with all associated files/subdirs/GTK3 to run with wine/Linux does not work yet (queer method: probably some common dll's, registry keys still missing...

Re: 43S News

Hi, wow, thanks for this tempting recipe concerning flashing a DM42 to house the 43S firmware - it makes one hungry for more ;) I did put it on the list of my mini projects for the summer holidays to modify my dear trusty DM42β. Meanwhile experimenting with the "WP 43S simulator" on a Win10 machine ...

Re: Dutch Lion

In principle, it would be very nice to see different colours at the first glance in these special 1bit bmp files. +1 Probably, this feat could be achieved by assigning different dithering patterns to these different colours. If someone knows an easy and not time consuming way, I would appreciate any...

Re: Maybe a hp41 OFFIMG ?

The OFFIMG of an HP41cx with white overlay looks great ! +1 Anecdote : It reminded me by chance of the HP 41 with bright overlay bought by the former East German national airline "Interflug" at the end of the 80s.
