Anyone in the Portland Oregon Area...

Mon Aug 14, 2017 8:22 AM

Under the heading of "possibility"...


I wonder if Albert would remotely be interested in having the TI-99/4A featured?  If so, it might be a way to get some more attention for the TI and bring in a few new TI users here.


Check out Albert's message << HERE >> if you might be interested.  Someone might want to get a little PR for one of their games too.


If you have have the time and live in the area...  (just an idea)

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

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.

Is it time to unpin the .BIN Repository for burned cartridges?

Since the FlashROM 99 and FinalGROM 99 came out, the '.BIN Repository - Images for burning cartridges' thread has for the most part been taking up space at the top of the TI-99/4A Computer section.  Is it time to 'unpin' the thread?



The THANK YOU Thread! \_(ツ)_/

Tue Aug 1, 2017 8:36 AM

We TI'ers have a LOT to be thankful for here at AtariAge.  There are so many people who contribute their time, expertise and experience helping others.  We also have the software, hardware and 3D printer gurus that make us all the cool toys and accessories, and so much more!  The fact is we have so much to be thankful for and so many people to thank, we cannot cover them all in one simple post, so I thought a devoted thank you thread was a good idea.  :)


To start this thread off, I'm going to thank both Sparkdrummer & Shift838.  Those two guys have spent literally years bringing us their awesome newsletters.  This has taken a lot of time, energy and devotion. I personally enjoy their newsletters so much that I print every single issue, before reading them and storing them for posterity. They have contributed much to our enjoyment of the TI-99/4A hobby.


THANKS GUYS!  :)  :thumbsup:
