#3827209 Nano PEB's back in Production!

Posted by --- Ω --- on Mon Aug 14, 2017 8:13 AM

Being that Nano's are such flaky devices, I'm sure that is one reason, among many, why people are patiently waiting on the TIPI project, which will probably be a major game changer.




#3827202 FS: 3D printed cases (FinalGROM99, FlashROM99, NanoPEB, C4CPC...), Tapuino

Posted by --- Ω --- on Mon Aug 14, 2017 8:06 AM

Free bump for a great guy. I ordered two cases (for FinalGROM and the 32KB expansion) and they are top notch. The level of quality far surpassed what I was expecting honestly. He must have a darn good 3D printer ;) The accuracy is spot on. Highly recommended and pretty much necessary if you care about your boards :)

 

I agree!  I've included a high quality close up photo here, so others can see how nice his FinalGROM cartridge shell is.

 

The second image is a lower resolution image of both items you mentioned... although I admit to painting the 32K expansion shell to match my TI so it's no longer 'stock looking'.

#3825686 How do I update my F18a with my FlashRom99?

You cannot use a FlashROM for the task, but you can use the FinalGROM.

A YouTube video showing off TMS 9900 CP/M would be nice..... someday?

These cards interest me.

I feel BLESSED to be around all the software and hardware developers here at AtariAge.  These guys are hobbyists working alone or sometimes in pairs to make things that meet or exceed anything multi-million dollar companies could produce, but don't due to small market share.  For these guys to do this stuff, as a hobby, sandwiched in between work, family and other obligations is truly remarkable.  I look up to each and every one of them that contributes to the continued support and enjoyment of our retro hobby.

 

I'll NEVER complain that something is too expensive, after all they are not made by machines in the millions.  These guys devote months, sometimes YEARS developing these things, going through multiple revisions at their own expense, paying shipping on all the parts, and sinking untold hundreds of hours into the bringing these things to us.

 

Thanks guys!  You ARE appreciated!  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:




#3824548 A marriage of two programs I'd really like to see in .BIN format...

Posted by --- Ω --- on Wed Aug 9, 2017 7:30 PM

Video Chess for the TI is a nice program but typing in all those moves gets tedious.  But along came Harry Wilhelm with his awesome "Beyond Video Chess" which makes moving easy with the joystick.  It's the ONLY reason I still need and use a Widget... but i'd sure like to eliminate that.

 

I know people use Classic 99 to make .BINs of programs in memory, but I wonder if it's possible to emulate a widget in Classic 99 to combine both Video Chess & Beyond Video Chess, take the data in memory and make a .BIN of those two combined?

 

I'm sure with the new FinalGROM 99 or an UberGROM board, more people would be playing Video Chess if they could use a joystick and easily save their games.

I also want to thank c0d3m4st4 for the new cases he has designed and made available to everyone in the community.  It's wonderful to have fashionable custom cases to protect all our new toys.  :)  :thumbsup:

Remember, "the good olde days" when everything had the, "Please allow 6 - 8 Weeks for delivery" plastered on all over the advertising?

 

Man, have things improved!




#3823836 The FinalGROM 99

Posted by --- Ω --- on Tue Aug 8, 2017 8:07 PM

I'm really lovin' this new cartridge shell by c0d3m4st4. :thumbsup:

 

I wanted to make a video of it today, but spent hours at the emergency room with a family member so I did not get the chance.  :_(

 

Anyway, I like the way the SD card is TOTALLY FLUSH with the front of the cartridge when fully inserted.  That is so nice!  Unfortunately I buggered up the label a little when cutting out the notch for the SD card... dammit! :mad:   Soooo, I'll still get the video made, but it'll probably next week as time allows.  

 

BTW - c0d3m4st4, if you are reading this, this is your best work yet.  I also like the design of your buttons.  Excellent!  I'm going to design a new label too (as time allows).  I'm figuring it'll have a built-in window for the LED showing "activity".

This expo turned out to be a bigger farce than I thought it would be.

 

 

 

LOL!  How do you screw up a live stream like that?!?!?

 

Karma can be a *itch!   ;)
