CHATTI - A simple chat program that I wrote to develop and exercise the concept of exchanging messages between consoles via a central server. I have a server running in Dallas TX that hosts myti99.com's website and APIs for connecting TIPI-enabled TI consoles. The goal was to have a place where people could register accounts and enable message exchanges between consoles, messages meaning chat messages or game info since peer-to-peer is more complicated and problematic with firewalls.

From BASIC:   CALL TIPI("PI.HTTP://MYTI99.COM/CHATTI")

 

CHESS - I wanted to create an E/A 5 version of the chess game that I created for Stuart's browser a couple years back, so this was the next project I undertook to demonstrate turn-based games via TIPI and a central server. It's just plain chess without some features, but playable.

From BASIC:   CALL TIPI("PI.HTTP://MYTI99.COM/CHESS")

 

 

SNEK - This is a snake-genre game that simply lets you move around the screen until you crash into a wall, or yourself. It's very simple and meant to be yet another proof-of-concept where game high scores could be synced among all players, via myti99.com. I created a simple API for allowing this with the plan to make it available to any game developers who want to make use of it.

From BASIC:   CALL TIPI("PI.HTTP://MYTI99.COM/SNEK")

 

 

 

Question regarding the programs.  Is there a filename/path I can enter and use on a MENU path so it is a letter selection on the MENU program?

I answered part of my question here. I was able to enter the PI.HTTP://pathto the chess game, but was lost with input.  Had no idea what was being entered, etc. in the chess game.

 

Could not access CHATTI, as the filepath and name was one character too long for the MENU program.

In TIPIcfg change URI1 to be http:/myti99.com then in menu use URI1.CHATTI

Here it is folks.  Mass Transfer for the TIPI allowing Telnet connections to BBS's with uploading and downloading capability along with a phone directory.

 

Includes source code.

 

Enjoy.

Is this also 80 column? If so, is there a ZIPped copy available?

No 80 columns. It is 40 columns only as I have no TI setup with 80 columns to test, etc.

All these programs are still being polished. Any feedback is welcome. So far, thanks to jedimatt and PeteE for coding tips, arcadeshopper, jonecool, and Omega for helping me test these programs out.

 

Programmers: Adding support for syncing high scores to a game is quite easy and requires only a couple of calls to fetch high scores, and to submit scores to the server. Currently it requires having first logged into myti99.com, so SNEK has a login page for this. I may remove this requirement so that it'd be even easier for anyone to add this score-syncing to their own games - it'd just be a matter of registering your game with myti99.com and receiving an app GUID so that the API will accept new score submissions from your game, and allow for reading them back for display within your game. If you are interested, Please contact me and I'll share the necessary info.

 

Hey, may I suggest the Mass Transfer program image files be added to the MYTI99.com website and the list of programs updated?  This would give someone without any other disk i/o device besides the TIPI, 32K, and a console, the ability to start transferring files to their TIPI so they can use.  There is another topic area where someone does not have a Windows machine to drag and drop programs, so this is one route and maybe the only route someone can transfer files to their TI-99/4A - TIPI system.  If someone put together a video configuring the TIPI for MYTI99.com, how to launch the program, then calling a BBS using the manual connection option in Mass Transfer as they would not be able to load the PHONE1 file, this would get them started.  I do not want to plug any particular BBS, however, of the Telnet'able BBS's out there, 9640NEWS BBS has the largest selection I am aware at the moment.

 

Food for thought.

I'm confused about what you mean.  The TIPI does not NEED to use drag and drop.  TIPI also has it's own 'web page' that can be accessed by nearly any modern browser on nearly any device, PC, Mac, even an Android cellphone.

 

Heck, even if a person did not have Internet access at home, they could still download TI files using free WiFi and send them to their TIPI when they got home.

Myself, I use drag and drop to the \\TIPI folder I am logged into on my windows computer after processing with TIDIR to put headers in place on my TI setup.  I am not copying over DSK images myself.

 

As far as the request, I was hoping the Mass Transfer program files could be added to the MYTI99 URL.  That would instantly give people the opportunity to connect with BBS's and transfer files in a medium they be more familiar.   

 

I do not know about others, but I do not believe an iOS iPad or iPhone would allow me to "download" files, and then subsequently upload them.  I know I can deal with PDF's, but other things, not sure about other file types.

Beery,

 

I run myti99.com and would be glad to add your program to the site. Can you pass it along in a .ZIP file?

I think very few programs are directly executable "as is" on whtech.  Perhaps someone should create a special TIPI folder on Whtech where programs can be loaded.

 

Probably would not hurt to add ARCHIVER to myti99.com and/or Whtech as well so it can be executed as well.  It is not a TIPI program itself, but may be something someone needs in their arsenal for use.

MXT/MXU are now in ftp.whtech.com/TIPI  if you set a URI slot in your ti to http://ftp.whtech.com/TIPIassuming you set URI3 to that you can load mxt in ti basic with CALL TIPI("URI3.MXT")

Question.  Can something similar be done to pull stock information?  Not sure if a graphic chart can be downloaded as well?
