Hi All,

 

   Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules by asking, but I was wondering if anyone could link me, google doc me, or e-mail me the bios files for TI-99 on the Retropie.  I have been searching the net all day for TI-994A.ctg (case sensitive), and there is just nothing out there.  I'm extremely frustrated.  TI-99 was one of my favorite game systems.  Any help would be much appreciated.

suggests you use the tool to do it yourself.

Thanks.  I looked through this, but I was unable to figure out WHAT files to use to convert into the ctg files.  It's really very confusing reading for me.  Is this to be used in Linux, maybe?  Either way, it seemed beyond my understanding.

I'm no expert but it looks like the ctg file format is specific to that emulator. The tools that phoenix pointed out include windows versions and a convert-ctg.exe program used to convert rom image file to ctg format. There are ti99 rom image file available with mame downloads, I don't know know if its the same thing. Try asking in the TI99 subforum.

Edit:
Try this for the rom image files. http://dl.openhandhe...d,0,0,0,72,2798

I WAS here then, you know!

But....

I've been searching myself, but i've only found windows based emulators.
