A downloadable emulator for Windows

This is an emulator for a very old and niche graphic calculator called HI-216. It uses a very basic programming language to recreate various mathematical functions, based on the 72 pre-made Graphs. You can also have fun in Sandbox Mode, creating whatever your heart desires! (All files used by HI-216 can be opened and edited in any text editor.)

For the moment, the SHR-OS Emulator only contains this program - we'll see if my commissioner asks me to do any other ones!

I included a copy of the original HI-216 Manual, but also take a look at the Readme for more info about using the emulator (it's pretty simple). I also included, according to my commissioner's request, an early copy of Minnisoda's Technical Revelations that he sent me; if you want to listen to the final album (and possibly buy it), it's here: https://89odev.bandcamp.com/album/minnisodas-technical-revelations

There's not much else for me to say here! Just have fun!

Install instructions

On Windows, be aware that anti-virus software as well as Windows Defender will false-positive it as a virus, since it's made with GMS2. The only way to prevent that requires legal identification and lots of money so I'm not doing it. I have no way of proving to you that it's not a virus other than this article: https://help.yoyogames.com/hc/en-us/articles/360031016592-What-to-do-if-your-game-is-false-positive-detected-as-a-virus
