For those who haven't seen previous versions, XTiger is an unix emulator (under X Window) of a TI-92 calculator (Texas instruments).
It was originally written by Jonas Minnberg and was closed source.
Jonas Minnberg has not worked on XTiger for quite a while and he gave Misha Nasledov the code and permission to GPL it.
The IR keyboard support is based on the work of Harald Fielker
(author of the PSP IR Keyboard Library)
PSPXTI is a port on PSP a the Unix version 0.8.
What's new in this version ?
- IR Keyboard support
You need the rom of your TI-92 or TI-92 plus, but it is NOT part of the PSPXTI package because it is the property of Texas Instruments !
If you own an original TI-92 you can then download the rom Ti-92+ v1.1 here
This version works 1.5 and custom firmware 3.X-OE
It's distributed under GNU licence and sources are included.
It has been developed on linux for Firmware 1.5 and 3.03-OE, and for the IR keyboard
part it has been tested using a Targus Universal IR Wireless keyboard.
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.
Here is a PDF version of the TI-92 manual : TI 92+ manual

wow, thanks a lot for this stuff, its a very usefull thing, and it makes the psp more universal than ever, now i can play games and i can use that great calculator system from TI! the 1.2 version is very annoying on my psp, it write many random letters and numbers without touching pad and keys, so im using 1.1 version and is ok, thanks a lot one more time, keep your work!
it writes random things without ir device (i dont have any, so i cant check how it behave with it), when i boot that emu, it goes to menu screen and without touching anything it goes to calculator main screen and write random numbers and letters
no problem mate, i dont have any probs on 1.1 version, it rocks, thanks one more time
Thanks man for this homebrew, its so cool and i would like to make a few suggestions if I may: First, could you please implement an option to choose between the old keyboard and the danzeff keyboard?
And second, could you please make the danzeff keyboard look more like the one in this photos? You know with the left and right directionals to move between letters, the up directional as backspace and the down directional as enter... Thx
ROM link doesn't work.
