Can someone supply a link or upload this game if you have it please?  Had a quick look over on WHTech but couldn't see it.

I found 5 versions of Asteroids in the TI Gamebase, but no Enigma for the TI using multiple search methods.  A Google search brings up your original post.  Could this possibly have been for another platform or a local program that never made it out into the wild?

Pretty good game

 

Still looking for PSYBORG by TImagination

 

Aren't we glad I archive all this stuff?

You'll not find in the Gamebase as I didn't put it in originally, I want for the next release.

If it's good, hopefully it makes it into FR/FG99 .BIN format soon then.

 

YES - But now I'm wondering how big your archive is!  :-o

I spent more time than I'll ever admit to looking for it and came up empty.

You know, if it was missing among your massive collection of stuff, I guess it really was obscure!

I have it also.  I sent physical disks of it and one other (don't recall) some 5 or 6 years back.  I'm not a game player, so I don't pay much attention to all the game talk.  I do support those that write games in TI Basic and Forth, however.

Is anyone working on it? I'll see if I can figure out how.

Does this game require cart RAM?

Worst case mini memory is a bin for finalGROM99

Yes, it requires cart RAM and GROM - so you'll need a FinalGROM99 to play it on hardware.

 

I took the Mini Memory ROM and GROM and preloaded the game program into the RAM address, and added some initialization code to set up the scratchpad RAM, then changed the program list in GROM.  Put the files ENIGMAC.BIN and ENIGMAG.BIN on your FG99 SD card.  To use with MAME, rename the .zip to .rpk.  To use with Classic99, put the bins in MODS\enigma and you'll need to create a user menu entry in classic99.ini:

[UserCart0]
name=Enigma
rom0=R|6000|2000|MODS\enigma\enigmac.bin
rom1=G|6000|2000|MODS\enigma\enigmag.bin

There are some sanity checks during initialization - if the cartridge RAM check fails it prints "NORAM", if the GROM check fails it prints "NOGROM".

 

I learned many things in order to do this:

- How to read from GROM in machine language

- FG99 doesn't load the GROM if the program list is in the ROM header

- How to use xga99.py

- The GPL instruction XML (execute machine lanugage) jumps from the GROM into the intitalization code in ROM through a table

 

Enjoy! (Omega, feel free to link this from FG99 binaries thread)
