Yes it is version 110
and the size thing, that would be console specific, correct? The F18 console with the 32k internal chip is
13904 stack free
24480 of program space free
without the CF7 connected.
my other consoles are not readily available i would have to get one of them out of storage, but they are original equipment. not modified at all.
Yes, this is as expected due to the F18A & 32k TI console, so you don't want to add the 32K chip to the CF7+ until you switch to a standard TI console with 9918A VDP. Once you start thinking about the next upgrade, be sure to put a FinalGROM 99 (FG99) high up on your list, as It can almost provide you with every single module ever made for the TI-99/4A, including all the ATARI and most of the MBX modules, on a single standard TI size module. A dozen different, enhanced Extended Basics. that are far more capable than TI XB 110, not to mention all kinds of XB add on features, and then there's Funnelweb to consider. It is more like an XB environment, so you still get to choose your specific XB, but you need to talk to those who are currently using it. Originally it didn't work well with CF7+ and NanoPEB systems, but I believe they have most of those issues fixed or by-passed now. Which brings me to my position of bowing out of the XB usage of any type. I have two or 3 XB modules, and I was able to use my 80K MG GramKracker to create the XB EA with lowercase characters, assembler & linker GK files, and save to DSK or CF volumes, using the GK files included on the MG GK disks that came with the MG GramKracker. It was great, as it included dozens of new features, and you could easily switch back and forth between XB and EA. I was early into all the best stuff that came out for TI & Geneve systems. Earlier Myarc had come out with an all AL (no GPL) XB II Level IV that had a 128KOS that required a minimum 28K RAM card, but it shortly grew to 512K, allowing 128K for the OS, 360K for a RAM disk, and 64K print spooler. I don't know until this day what happened to my Myarc 512K card. Even before Myarc 128K/512K card, Foundation came out with a 128K card that was suppose to be a non-battery powered RAM disk, but the DSR was not ready, but they put it on the market anyway. It was quite some time before it functioned as a simple RAM disk that had to be loaded up every time it was powered up. Fortunately Myarc created DSR chip for the Foundation card, so it could be used with the Myarc 128KOS XB II Level IV after they released version 2.12. Prior to 2.12 the Myar XB II Level IV had many problems, but version 2.12 was very good. The only really big problem remaining was the cost of the RAM card and module, which meant there weren't many users. It was totally unique in the TI & Geneve community, even though the GPL version Basic was based on V2.11, so buggy. It took years before the final MDOS Basic became really good, but by then I was doing all my development in forth; Forth+ for MDOS and X4th99 for the TI-99/4A&P. Forth+ was officially released in December of 1993. Sad to say it never had more than 10 registered users, but new hope struck when MESS introduced a Geneve MDOS emulator. I was going to Poland for about a year, so I took my PFM+512K Geneve with me, and started developing Forth+ V2.00, which primarily was to simplify user management & control of the V9938 192K memory for all text and graphic modes. Also never released due to few MESS users actually using the Geneve MDOS emulation. Of course, I was one of the few, so I decided to return to developing software for TI-99/4A&P systems only. Which is why I currently spend so much time trying to fix my old Geneve, SCSI and IDE systems. I will keep one SCSi PEB card for SNUG TI-99/4P, the Myar HFDC card, 1 Myarc FDC with 80 track modifcation (the other Myarc FDC w/80 track, also has the AMA/AMB/AMC Geneve memory modification and will probably be sold with the GenMOD Geneve & 2MB Memex).
Now you know why I'm where I'm at. Most of the repair, work so far, has just been 5VDC & 12VDC regulator replacement. All due to my haste to get back on hobby track too soon after my event that put me in the hospital at Nellis USAF base for 6 days.
