Re: Exit from Activate USB Disk

Even after I've run the update? I think it should check the version in the FAT and skip the Load Flash question if the FAT version is less than or equal to the installed version. That would ne a nice tweak in the future, but as it is, it's useful to lead noobs to load the file they've just copied t...

Re: Exit from Activate USB Disk

When I try to exit from the USB Disk, I press EXIT to exit the disk and then ENTER to confirm exit. Instead of getting back to the system menu, I get the "Load Flash From FAT" screen instead. This happens on both my beta unit and my shipping unit. The OS has "noticed" that there is a new .bin file ...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.9a / DM42-3.9.1 / dm_tool-2.4

Is that third one the combination of 1 and 2? If so, we only need to copy #3 to the DM-42 drive, correct? Yes, that is a single image with both components. I think it's correct, but as I wasn't 100% sure, I loaded it the old-fashioned way with dm_tool_v2.4. It makes sense what you suggest is correc...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.9a / DM42-3.9.1 / dm_tool-2.4

Just updated: 1. New DMCP and DM42 App, using combined image and dm_tool_v2.4. Fast, smooth, no issues, no loss of State, etc. One unexpected thing is the prior DM42 App (DM42-3.7.1.pgm) remains in the FAT area; after a moment's thought this does make sense (since it was there before the update) but...

Re: New images dated 180814

Thanks Godwin, I suspected that was the case, but I didn't want to find out the hard way that what I asked would not work. Will update today and report any issues. Looks like the screen shot posted earlier of the 41 Emulator running on a 48 (with variable sized stack digits) inspired the new font ch...

Re: % Character ?

In the classic 42 ALPHA mode, the "%", "Pi" and "E" special characters are entered by pressing the keys where those characters appear on the keyboard. The "E" mentioned here is not the letter E, it's the special character used to express Exponent, which is the key to the right of the [+/-] key.

Re: DM15L - difference between two dates?

So the next questions is of course ... should I splurge on a DM12L or keep using my Singapore made HP 12C until it dies? ;) The DM12L is much faster than older (3-battery or 1-battery) 12Cs, so if you use programs this may be a strong factor to consider. I'm not sure of the relative performance of ...

Re: Photo editing

FYI - Although fairly limited, Paint comes with all versions of Windows and works just fine. How do you get paint to do 1-bit and dithering? Paint does not support dithering (at least not with any control; when you paste something with higher res than the current settings, it sorta does some dither...
