OK I must be missing something.

(...)

wp43s-master-artwork - all the files are copied to the WP43S folder

What am I missing to make the new version run ?

Thanks !
Yep, that's the comment I did in a thread about the usage of the emulator... here

it's not all the files of the artwork folder... but the folder itself with all the files inside...

Best regards

Eduardo

I got it up and running.

When I extracted the Artwork Folder - it put it beneath a subfolder called wp43s-master-artwork. I moved it to the folder where WP43 is. Now is all and working.

Thanks !

I've come across what I think is a bug, or at least unintended behaviour, on the WP43S emulator. It is freshly built from source today! (I can't get the Windows version to run, but Linux is fine.)
  • Press 3 . 3 0 f d.ms to give a display of 3 degrees, 30 minutes, and 0 seconds.
  • Press 1/x twice.
The display shows 3.3; I feel that it should show 3.5. The reciprocal key is treating the dms representation as an ordinary decimal. Other (non-trig) keys do the same, in particular e^x. I came across this doing a half-life calculation with time in hours and minutes and a decay constant in hours^(-1); I simply got the wrong answer.

Thanks for reporting. You're right, this is a bug. According to p. 72 of the OM, 1/x should be illegal for an angle. (Edit 28.6.: we've to look closer at the angles - might take a while.)

Regarding your second issue, times are not implemented yet. Thanks in advance for your patience.
