Features

This PRGM is a plug in for the Play Pig game. It is a probability generator written by someone else. You can specify either rolls or maximum number to go to before ending turn. This is not graphical, so you can not see how the game is playing. It can be run by itself or from the Play Pig menu.

The Game

See Play Pig for info about the game and strategy

Space

  • 504 blocks RAM memory
  • Play Pig (optional) -> 523 blocks RAM memory

Count Rolls

SBIGPIG Rolling.png

This version stops after a specified number of rolls. After choosing it from the menu enter the maximum number of rolls you want to test. The simulator will "bank" after that many rolls in a turn, if it has not rolled a 1 so far. Next, enter the number of games (turns) to play. More games takes more time but gives you better accuracy.

After it simulates the game, it will tell you the total points which were won, as well as the average per roll (total/number of rolls)

Stop at Points

This version stops after a certain number of points have been accumulated in a turn. The game will "bank" after that number of points has been reached or exceeded. Next, enter the number of games (turns) to play. More games takes more time but gives you better accuracy.

After it simulates the game, it will tell you the total points which were won, as well as the average per roll (total/number of rolls).

Pig Auto-Stop shows this strategy, but shows what is happening in each roll.


Standard Info

Requirements

  • A TI-83 Plus, TI-83 Plus Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus, or TI-84 Plus Silver Edition (Not tested on other versions)
  • A cable to connect your calculator to your computer.
  • The software to make your computer talk to your calculator. (It should have come with your calculator or cable)
  • Free space on your calculator.
    • 16,384 blocks for APPS
    • 303 blocks RAM for SNAME PRGM
    • ~100 blocks RAM for simple PRGMs
    • ~500-1000 blocks RAM for complicated PRGMs like games

Install

The TI GraphLink cable and TI-Connect software
  1. Have installed TI-Connect (the software which came with the cable/calculator)
  2. Download the PRGM "SNAME" which is required to be on your calculator for all PRGMs. APPs like "FERRIS", don't need SNAME.
  3. Download the PRGM (.8xp) or APP (.8xk) file to your computer. Save it somewhere.
  4. After downloading, find it on your computer. Right click and hit "Send to TI-Device"
  5. TI-Connect will open. Choose your calculator and wait for it to transfer. Make sure you have enough free space on your calculator.

Run

Go to [PRGM] scroll to the program's name. Push [Enter] to select it and then [Enter] again to run it. You will see a splash screen. Hit [Enter] to continue.

Exiting

To exit the program, hit [On] key and push [Enter] or [1] to quit.

Removing

To delete a PRGM or APP, push [2nd] [MEM] [2]. Then push [7] for a PRGM or [ALPHA] [A] for an APP. Find the one you want to delete and hit [DEL] [2].

Error: Memory?

If you are getting the error when you want to run an APP, you don't have enough free RAM memory. You need to archive a PRGM. Do this by hitting [2nd] [MEM] [2] [7], finding the PRGM you want the archive, and hit [Enter]. Note you need to unarchive it before you can run it again (Unless you use Mirage or similar OS to run archive PRGMs.)

Note

Note the program might set your calculator in degrees mode, change the graph settings, turn off floating (rounding), and/or overwrite variables. After running the program, make sure your calculator is back the way you want it before doing other things.
