Interesting, thanks. The cartridge has a 16K ROM (the two banks for the 6000 area) and a 32K ROM for the GROM emulation, and obviously the existing superxb dump is "overdumped" because it is 40K long. In fact, in this dump, the data at offset 0x4000-0x5fff are equal to the ones at 0x8000-0x9fff.

Sorry to take so long- my Triton SXB returns a CALL VERSION of 120.   I attach a cartridge file I have for ti-sim : I also have a PC99 version if that is better.  I have the original cartridge too, but lack the extra bits to dump / transfer it.

Michael, one note: Triton SEB uses all 8K of each potential GROM space, so a 40K GROM file would be correct. It used emulated GROMs, not the original TI XB GROMs, packing the extra SEB routines into the extra 2K per chip gained with the GROM emulation.

Thanks for uploading the SXBs, mizapf and blackbox!  Unfortunately neither works in classic99, but that's ok since it sounds like they work in their respective emulators.  At least now we have digital copies which can hopefully be tweaked to work with the FG.

Ehm ... my point is the 27256 chip on the board.

Has one been made into an cartridge image?  If so, send me the link and I'll add it to the list.  I'm assuming it'll be a FlashROM image?

You'd have to check with shift838 or InsaneMultitasker. i thought they released it already will have to search the forums. i have a copy for FR99 that I've used to help them test. Don't want to arbitrarily give that away myself.

EDIT: Oh, here it is, I just had to scroll down.

Also this version also works with the stock TI-RS232 as well.

 

Also, all the programming credit goes to Insane Multitasker.  I was just one for testers and a nagger in his ear that we needed this..

Oh yeah, sorry I've been having memory issues lately... I've not used it in a while, but yes now I remember WHY this was not added to the FR99/FG99 list, it's because it's not a yet completed program.  Last I heard Tim was still tweaking with speed, downloads and other items.  So any update would have to be continually updated every time there is a new version.  I think there was also some discussion about making the menus save data for settings and call information.

 

Even though it's not yet finished, it's still THE BEST comm program for the TI IMHO!  Now that we have the FG99 this program is ripe for completion.  Depending on how he goes about it, size limitations may no longer be a issue as segments can be modular in nature and only used as needed.

More info on Triton Super Extended Basic which may assist getting it into FG99: Triton used "emulated" groms. I have looked at the working dump files and the segment headers are for two emulated ROM chips and 4 emulated GROM chips. The GROM "file" headers are for GROM 4,5,6 and 7 (eg >04,05,06.07) -possibly this may help someone move the dump onto the FG99? I don't know why Triton chose those GROM numbers and - presumably- used appropriate addressing for those grom numbers. Stephen

It's already in and working - I tried it one or two days ago!  The following post points to a FinalGROM archive that contains it: http://atariage.com/...m-99/?p=3803976

Just a reminder, that the FinalGROM 99 stuff is located towards the end of message #1 in this thread.
