Hey, I just thought of something. Maybe I could get an emulator going with a loaded ROM and "save" the program (I would imagine there would be some kind of audio output/audio file support) while "reading" it from my TI-99 ...
I'm afraid it won't work like that. If you bought a bare TI-99/4A console it only has 256 bytes real memory.
It does have 16K memory attached to the video processor but you can't run assembly programs there.
The easiest way to get going is to get a CF7+ compact flash device. The CF7+ has 32K real memory and most of the game roms
are also available in a disk version which you can store on the compact flash card.
It should be possible to load the disk version of the assembly game via cassette, but you still need the 32K memory.
There was an article about that in one of the Smart Programmer issues. Then again I don't think it's that much fun
waiting for ages while the game loads from tape.
