Does anyone have the Classic99 disk images for the "Teach Yourself Basic" TI-99/4A disks? If memory serves there were two different disks with a total of 10 different parts to the "Teach Yourself Basic" series of programs. Thanks!

I have them on real disks at home. If nobody can hook you up with digital copies, I will transfer them in the next day or so and post them here

Thanks, Opry99er! Hopefully someone has them handy to save you the trouble of transferring them. But I appreciate your taking the time to make the transfers and post them if no one has them handy already. I have fond memories of the Teach Yourself Basic disks and have always thought they were remarkably effective tutorials.

It looks like the disk images are on http://ftp.whtech.comhere:

./video/Chicago TI Fair 2014 Videos/Chicago TI Faire Disk 2014/LIBRARIES/LIB_TI_DISKS_81/T_V_16/TEACH_YOURSELF_BASIC_PART_1.DSK

./video/Chicago TI Fair 2014 Videos/Chicago TI Faire Disk 2014/LIBRARIES/LIB_TI_DISKS_81/T_V_16/TEACH_YOURSELF_BASIC_PART_2.DSK

 

There's also an Extended BASIC one:

./video/Chicago TI Fair 2014 Videos/Chicago TI Faire Disk 2014/LIBRARIES/LIB_TI_DISKS_81/T_V_16/TEACH_YOURSELF_EXTENDED_BAS.DSK

 

I have not downloaded these to verify their contents.

Nice. :)

I also have the physical disks and the physical tapes as well as the accompanying documentation. Let me know if any of that is missing from the downloads and I'll make it a point to supplement this thread with anything that may be missing.

Attached File  TEACHBASIC.DSK   360KB   18 downloads

 

This is a diskette I've put together from cassettes. Note that the dsk is DSDD or 1440 sectors.

Not such a bad idea, really.  Videos are good but follow-along does not work well for everyone in terms of learning and time.  Doing is a little different.

Yea will have to do that for RXB 2018 when I release it as many changes are in RXB 2018.

 

For example AMS support has been changed:

 

RXB 2001 to RXB 2015 AMS support:

CALL AMSBANK(low bank,high bank,...)

CALL AMSON

CALL AMSOFF

CALL AMSMAP

CALL AMSPASS

 

RXB 2018 changes:

CALL SAMS(low bank,high bank,...)

CALL SAMS("ON",...)

CALL SAMS("OFF",..)

CALL SAMS("MAP",...)

CALL SAMS("PASS",...)

 

Why? Well in RXB 2018 you can do this:

 

CALL SAMS("ON",low bank,high bank,"OFF")

 

In RXB 2001 to RXB 2015 you would have to do this:

 

CALL AMSON :: CALL AMSBANK(low bank,high bank) :: CALL AMSOFF

For the versions hosted on http://ftp.whtech.com/, what are the file names for the individual BASIC programs on the "Teach Yourself Basic" disks? I downloaded the two DSK files but I don't know how to find the individual file names to run them in Classic99. 

 

Thanks!

Use a Disk Manager cartridge (Classic99 drop down menu) or download TI99Dir by Fred Kaal

It seems that Classic99 does not include DISK MANAGER2. I'm not sure what users are supposed to do...

Using TI99Dir to extract the program files did the trick. Thanks for the help, everyone!

I should have put that better. XB2.7 is on the Dropdown menu. It has 3 disk managers on it you can use. :)

Use Disk Manager 1000. ;) It's included on DSK1 and loads with Editor/Assembler cartridge, option 5, DSK1.MGR1

Or use TI99DIR or any of the many external disk image manager tools. Classic99 was written to use files, not disk images, and disk image support is only there as a convenience, not the recommended workflow. If you use files, you can just open the folder in Windows and see all the files. ;)

Nobody agrees with me, but that's what users are "supposed" to do. ;)

This is just what I do. I've been using Classic99 more and more lately. Why?

1. The Debugger!!!
2. The E/A files are DIRECTLY compatible with TIPI.
3. Easily see and copy files/edit filenames as I make minor revisions.
4. No immediate limit on how many large files I can save to a virtual disk (same as my TIPI directory).
