I just  got a TI-83 plus silver edition calculator.  I was wondering if anyone could walk me through how to put a game onto it.  I have all of the cables.  but I can't figure out what files to put onto it. the game I want to put on it is located here http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/192/19225.html.

Thanks in advance.

Download the Software from texas instruments, or from the software disc your calculator / cables may have came packaged with.
Download the game onto your computer, and open it in the TI-83+ Software program.
Link up your calculator to the computer... Make sure the right type of cable connection is specified.
Turn calculator on... Have it sit at the normal basic screen (do NOT put it in receive mode or it wont work)
Tell the Software to send the game to your calculator, and it should.

thats a basic runthrough.

I did that but it came up with a syntax error.  I can get the flash games to work but not the basic or assembly games.  Which file type should I send.

I figured it out.  What I had to do was Download MirageOS from here http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/139/13949.html.  Then you extract the file with the .8xp file and send it to your calculator.
