#4202172 Speech Synth Replacement Sticker or Scan Request

Posted by --- Ω --- on Yesterday, 10:15 PM

Try Microsoft Sans Serif as the font. That should be really close to the original. . .

 

Yeah, that font looks better, thanks Ksarul!  I also sampled the color of his last photo and used that for the background.

So, now that it looks like you got something BETTER than what was expected.... have you turned it on yet?  If so, how's it working?




#4201954 Cool little device for recording from your TI

Posted by --- Ω --- on Yesterday, 4:13 PM

Hey guys, watch this new video by Jonecool.  It enables you to record your TI's video without using a PC directly to a USB memory stick.  The device has various inputs like composite and HDMI, so if you want to use it with an F18A, you'll still have to pick up a VGA to HDMI converter.  Those running composite output will get the added benefit of being able to use a newer HDMI monitor.   Of course since output is HDMI, those using VGA monitors already will have to get a converter or use this as an excuse to buy a new monitor for your TI.

 

After you record your output, use the sneaker net method to port the video to a PC for editing or watching.

 

 

 

The price is a little steep for my blood though...

I don't know the dimensions of the sticker, but I made this up for you.  You can scale it to the size you need.  Sadly I could not replicate the exact font.

I still think the TI section NEEDS a thread called "Ksarul's Museum" with photos of everything you have!

#4199012 Borzork

Posted by --- Ω --- on Wed Jan 16, 2019 7:20 PM

I thought the effort deserved a release in cartridge but it only sold 8 units and got angry some people because they expected a ROM for free. :?

 

I was ecstatic to see the Borzork game ported over by you Nanochess.  It is by far one of my most enjoyed games on the TI.

Thank you for all your hard work on this game.  BTW - Are you still selling cartridges if people want one?  If so, how much?

... maybe i should rename all the unofficial as 'home made', think you it could be better?

 

 

I'd go with 'aftermarket", "3rd Party" or "Community Created".

Ciro, 

   I just checked out your website, and found that you have a slight historical error in your database concerning the keyboard strip for Video Chess...

 

gallery_35324_1027_8533.jpg

 

... as you can see it lists the keyboard strip as "TI Official", when in fact it's a home made number, downloadable in message #1 of this thread.

 

The history on that strip is written << HERE >> in message #8. 

:-D  I have to admit, it's rather flattering to have ones work confused with the real thing, but I do not believe TI ever had an 'official' keyboard strip for that game.  If they did, I never saw one.

@Sparkdrummer  Do you take requests for dates on your calendars?  I was thinking that if/when Fest West 2019 is confirmed, it would be cool to have those days included.

Early adopters of technology often get screwed financially and then with obsolescence.  I learned my lesson in the 80's.

I positively LOVE this months graphic on the calendar! It brings back a few memories that I had to write checks for.

Yeah, this is for the convenience of the masses, nothing more.  Black box is doing us all a great service by putting them up in the original format.  I on the other-hand take a few liberties "here and there".  For instance in this one I cropped and straightened the cover page, which required the text in the upper right-hand side to be redone.  

 

I'm not sure how much difference you'll see, but this time I've put both versions up, the original at 10.1mb and the compressed version (-88%) at 1.23mb.  If you notice any difference after printing let me know and I may not make the compressed versions any more.

Sorry, on Cars & Carcasses I took the liberty of putting the name of the program on the cover, so it's not exactly 'stock'...
