Thanks to Rasmus for putting CS1 capability into JS99er. :)

 

This thread is for any tape games in WAV format. 

To load WAV cassette games in JS99er, select Extended Basic if needed for game, go to OPEN TAPE and choose your WAV.  Then type OLD CS1 and press enter.

Follow the on screen instructions, pressing play on the tape. After a bit of what sounds like Thrash Metal music the game will load. Type Run and press enter.

(Or in Extended Basic you can do RUN "CS1" and it'll auto-run the game after loading)

 

EDIT: Added more games to top of this thread.

Here's another one, "Castle Conquer" ... this is the 1st remake I did of an old 1984 Firefly Software game, and it's on wav and will work with even a 16K TI in Extended Basic.

 

Uses keys, the instructions are all on screen

I'm glad you posted this (DEALER) because you reminded me to test something. so here I am to report that it worked flawlessly.
I downloaded this wav file to my cell phone and using VLC for Android I played it into my TI via radio shack cassette with 3.5mm mini jack input and it worked flawlessly. Yep, just gave this game a go on real iron! :) whoot.

Speaking of Whoot - I got busted twice but got away before I lost all my cash gambling because I couldn't find a profitable drug deal. :(

Fair to say, not only have I never played this game before (or anything like it) - I also have zero experience as a drug dealer IRL, so I guess I'm prone to failure in this department - LOL.

Regarding "Dealer" ... if you visit "Millwall" you'll sometimes find cheaper than usual items to buy but there is a higher presence of police there! 

Always check out the price guide and sell for the higher price.  Stats are included in the game so you can see how well or bad you're doing.

It's based on John E.Dell's "DrugWar" written in the early 80's but never ported to the TI99.  There's a version for the Spectrum too.

If you mean "Texas Dealer" , the one i've put up here isn't that one but it's kind of a clone.  It has much better code now, when i made texan dealer I wasn't very practiced in what i was doing.

This game's nothing new, but it's nice to have on WAV for tape emulation, think "rock, paper, scissors" on horse-back, it's Challenge Of Camelot for TI Basic.

Great, smashing, super.  :)

Here's another one.  I made it last year, it's a frogger game with nice animated graphics and a couple of merry little tunes.

Use the arrow keys to guide Dodger over the road. There are three "homes" to occupy. Once you've occupied all three, the game moves on to the next level which is faster than the previous. High-score system included.  Needs Extended Basic.

I've added Prison Run to the top of the thread , editing my first post to include it.  I'll do this for all my games on WAV, come to think, saves a massive thread to scroll through.

Also put Dodger up there too.

Interesting thread!  A good idea too!  :thumbsup:   While I don't use cassette, I know many do and even newbies arriving for the first time after finding a TI in a closet could benefit too.  How about pinning this thread?

"FOLLOW ME" is an Extended Basic game that takes advantage of the Speech synthesis, and it's based on MB Games Simon.

There are 3 levels of difficulty. It actually comes off sounding and looking like something TI would have made (next to speak and spell!)

I'm partial to Cars & Carcasses 2- I think that was one my dad 'worked' on.  :)  That'd be neat to have.

I find it funny that the wav files are 10s of megabytes in size for programs no larger than 11k. :)

Yeah I remarked about that yesterday to a friend.  It's the audio quality they need, I think maybe the data would not survive any compression.

This is pretty fun. I've been loading them on to console using my cell phone and saving them to disk. Of course trying them out as I go.

Only got 4 so far, will do more in spare time. Camelot is fun - classic rock paper scissor action with a twist.
Dealer - Well, that's hard, I only played twice so far 
Bouncer3d required a joystick and I didn't have one connected at the time of loading so I put that off until later
Prison - Have yet to figure that one out. I couldn't seem to leave the building. I bet that red cross has something to do with it.

That's about all I had time for during lunch.

You are right it does, it's the hospital wing, you get out through that little gap by press up into it far as I remember, then it's across to the clearing in the trees.

 

See I could only ever get three men out!  This is one I had back in the day on tape. :)
