Yes I think that at least some of the videos are prior to me implementing laser overheating.
Permission from TI is a tricky one. I contacted the author of Classic99 who informed me that some 10 years ago he badgered TI until they found someone who even knew what the TI99 was and game him permission to distribute Parsec and other roms.
Sadly that TI contact is no longer available as I tried to email him but got an undeliverable... At present I'm going maverick and just doing it. I've remove the TI logo from the landscape though.
It's written completely in Swift using Apple's SpriteKit library.
I never knew about that Windows Phone remake. Interesting to see a similar-ish approach for the controls. I'm supporting bluetooth controllers too which is a lot more comfortable to play with. I wonder if he'd be interested in reviving it...
I noticed he mentioned redoing all the sounds and speech. I used TI hardware to sample all the sounds and dismantled a speech synthesiser to capture the speech before it mixed with other game sounds. I'm very pleased with the results.
Glad to have you as a tester, let me know your Apple ID email address and I'll add you in!
