TilEm emulator

TilEm is a Z80 based emulator for the Linux operating system. It is capable all the Z80 based series of TI graphing calculators with the exception of the TI-81.This little emulator will emulate all the features of the hand-held graphic calculator complete with a display and calculator interface with 100% compatibility.

However, TilEm is not packaged by default with Ubuntu, so we have provided a package for use with Ubuntu and Debian systems: tilem.deb (366 KB)

Simply click to install. Note that you must have your own TI-83+ images - you can try asking your educational institution, obtaining a flash update from Texas Instruments, downloading it yourself using a serial or parallel cable or searching Google for “ti 83 plus rom image“. Be sure to get a .rom file or a file which contains a .rom.

Once you have your ROM image, it is simply a matter of copying the rom to the ~/.TilEm/ti83p/ folder. For example, if you have a ROM file called “ti83p_2.rom” then just copy or move the file to the aforementioned folder. Then start TilEm by typing tilem in the terminal.
