I am using the latest Retropie with the TI99Sim emulator and have everything setup and working.

Most TI99 games load fine. I came across Space Bandits and after the Texas Instrument screen it just goes Blue and the game doesn't load anything. I remember this game was supposed to go to a blue screen but have words that say space bandits any TI key to begin but that screen never shows up.


Is this a bad ctg file or am I missing something to run this game? Has anyone gotten this game to work in Retropie??

I just tried on the RetroPie,  that .ctg image also does not work.

Probably not converted properly.


JS99er.net  has a working version online



I have the 2x BIN below, but they do not work in Classic99, nor JS99er (load cartridge)

so I guess these are not good.

Attached are the .BIN files. There is a TI99/SIM utility to convert 

from .bin to .ctg   (it should convert the ROM and the GROM)


Attached File  SPACEBAC.BIN   8KB   4 downloads


Attached File  SPACEBAG.BIN   16KB   4 downloads

Here is my .DSK 


Attached File  ASSMDS8.DSK   180KB   6 downloads


I have not tried it in TI/SIM  (Linux / RetroPie / SonyPSP) to load a .dsk file


but I just tried it in Classic99 and works okay  (1st screen is garbage, but rest works)








(there are more files on the .dsk,  use a program as TI-DIR of  www.ti99geek.nl)

to see the contents.

Thank You for the help. This has been driving me crazy trying to get it to work. I will have to try it in Classic 99. I'm not very familiar with Linux so converting the BIN files is going to be interesting to learn lol. :)
