I know it's not a TI program, but Convert9918 supports several F18A-only modes - does that count? :)

I thought I had a full on thread for it, but there's lots of examples and links here: http://atariage.com/...hl= convert9918

 

(also a bit of history ;) )

Fine :)

 

Omega, something that came in my mind: what about the Mechatronic ExBasic i+/II/II+ catridges  (with this ApeSoft-CALL-Extensions),

and there also was an "Apesoft Expanded Basic" on DISK (w/o any Cart - IIRC)

 

This all wasn´t 80col, OK, but at least fine graphical extensions. Any handle/idea for that here ?

(And if so, aybe we have more in that direction)

 

 

In my list, I have three terms/tags for this features:  "F18A"  "80col"  & "EGA"(extending Grafix or so:) )

it is not well maintained soon, but it is entered at least, so no probleb to find (as you can see in my list)

 

Ah OK, regarding your thread-title here, now I know where from I have this 3 terms  :) :)

Obviously Rasmus' Super Mario Bros. will have to be added to this list!

I'll hold off for a couple more weeks just in case anything else needs to be added to the list.  ;)

With many of the new cartridge games requiring 32K, other cartridge based programs supporting or requiring the F18A and some programs being HDX compatible, I decided to make up and use little designation emblems on my future cartridge labels.  Down the road some of you might even  come up with your own emblems.

 

The attached file below has the first three in case you care to adopt this method.

maybe one indicator/sign more, saying "80col" or so ?  (in contrast to F18A / EGA-enhanced graphics) ?

You may also want to do F18A enhanced and F18A required as some don't require F18A but have enhancements for those that have it :)

ah OK, you mean to differ between "CAN use " and "MUST have" the F18A ?  good idea.

So the new SuperTurboMarioBros is in the category of "must have" F18A

Well, I cannot say for who or why, but I made another one for SCSI, so while I was at it, I figured one for the UDS-10 might be nice for those making a label for Stuart's Internet Browser.

 

If you have any other needs for one, let me know.

BTW - Folks, you don't have to download the ZIP files.  All the little graphics are in PNG format and are small enough to slide out of AA straight onto your desktop and then directly into the graphic you are working with.

 

Below is a quick & dirty example of the new icons used in an existing graphic:

NOTE:

This might only work for TI-99/4As with a MECHATRONIC 80 Column extension system / VGA/SCART

 

(I have tried it in Classic99 with 80 Col enabled, JS99er.net with F18A enabled and on the real console)

 

Schmitzi -> maybe you can first if this works on your Mechatronic  (before adding it to the list of 80 Col card)

(Manuals are included, some in English, some in Dutch.   All credits go to Ton Brouwer (of the TIGG-NL).

Use the disk as DSK2.   (as it loads some more files for DSK2.)

yes, Globeron. thanks. I´ll try it, can´t await  :)

But the only problem now is that the console´s internal ribboncable for the Mechatronik-80 is missing.

But Ksarul could give me the needed infos about, thx a lot, and so I am on the track now,

maybe it needs some time, but I´ll also post about the cable and more when I got it running

Oh okay, sorry I did not realise that  (I probably can find about this project in the Dutch Tijdingen magazines of year 198x's)

(Project of "Regio Zeeland" / Ton Brouwer / Ton Damen). 

 

I thought it was for the Mechatronic 80 column card (not sure what chip is inside here, I have the PDF manual)
