ZeroZap with a double-wide playfield and less obstacles, so you can watch your arrow up to a minute long - without any control, of course.

Another important anniversary: The Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany (Grundgesetz) came into effect on May 23, 1949. In my view, and fortunately in the vast majority of people here, it is the best constitution that has ever been on German territory until today (without calling itself "constitution").

 

Article 1: Human dignity is inviolable. To respect and protect it is the duty of all state authority.

TIFILES do not have a standardized file name extension. I once suggested something like ".tfi" (which I am still using in TIImageTool), but this got no wider support; also, it would not work well with the concept of the Classic99 emulator to use the TIFILES directly by their names (instead of using disk images).

 

Maybe we could continue with private messages to allow this thread to return to its original topic.

TIFILES files and DSK files are really very different things.

 

TIFILES = one file

DSK = whole disk

 

Renaming a TIFILES file to a DSK files does not make any sense, or I don't get the intention behind it. :)

 

You can run a PROGRAM file in Editor/Assembler option 5 (unless it is a BASIC file). The file I tried (DSRLDR) is indeed such a E/A opt 5 file.

p99 is a TIFILES file. Create a new disk image in TIImageTool and import those files to into that image (via menu "Edit" or via drag-and-drop). You may have to set the filter to "all files" to see them.
