You read my mind. I was about ask if there was a FG99 version. Thank you!

 

Oh BTW - If you want documentaion for 4A/DOS...   ;-)

 

Be sure to put CHARA1 on DSK1.

That's pretty cool Omega! I came to 4A/DOS only after having a PC with directories.. So 4A/DOS just never made sense to me on a flat floppy system like the old TIFDC.

Okay, when I have a few minutes 'here and there' I like to mess around...

 

In the new documentation for the TIPICFG program, Matt has a link under "URI3="

I figured, might at well try it as my "URI1"

Can't do a directory using DM2K though.. it was worth a shot... just for the heck if it.

 

4A DOS gives you a little bit more, but nothing usable.

Hey guys, here's a little hack I came up with for you guys wanting to load the 9640 Menu System on your TIPI's using the FinalGROM99.

 

1) Create a directory on your RPi's SD card for TIPI called "BOOT"

     Put all the files in the BOOT folder there.

 

2) Now put the files in the FG99 ROOT folder in the ROOT directory of your FG99

 

3) Go to TI BASIC, CALL TIPI and then set your DSK3 as BOOT

 

Now whenever you load up your FG99, you have a selection to instantly load up the 9640 Menu System.

The goal and purpose of the URI1-3 things is so that programmers who want to fetch data off a long link, can set a large redundant part of the link into the URI mapping, and then fetch subsequent data or program files from it.

There is no support for parsing apache style directory listings from a web server.

Glad to see you playing at the edges though! icon_smile.gif Good stuff.

I imagine programs to set URI shortcuts, not just manual user usage. So after running some online adventure game, URI3 might have been remapped on you.

It also serves as an integration compatibility bit... as many programs on the 4A pretend we don't have a case-sensative filesystem and force UPPERCASE only path entry. The web is highly case-sensative for the 'path' part of a URL. So all that can be mapped into URI1, and then you can get a legacy program to open the file with URI1.DATA or whatever...

I've not had time to play with TiPi yet, but is 9640 menu for F18A consoles only (80 column)?

Yes, the 9640 Menu System is only 80 column... BUT there is a great program called BOOT that works very much like it for users still using the original 9918 VDP.

 

Note: Unless you have a 'Real Time Clock' in your P-Box. you'll not see the clock display, but other than that, this is what it looks like.

OK. Cool.... I remember your post about BOOT in another thread I think. I hope to get some free time this evening to try it out. Thanks!

Edit: The post I misremembered was for 9640 Menu system. I'm looking for BOOT now.

In a CHATTI conversation with jonecool tonight, The topic of having a list of games or other programs on the TIPI server would be great.  That way people without FG99's could easily load and run most of their favorites in a snap, just like CHATTI, TELNET, CHESS, AMBULANCE, etc.
