You have done a fantastic job here Mike. The results of your package and cart see BETTER than anything than what a commercial software house would have put out. The TI community is damn lucky to have you.

A neat way for the cassette user to find programs on  tapes.

#4235667 CASSETTE POWER

Posted by sparkdrummer on Sun Mar 10, 2019 2:01 PM

I thought it would be interesting if a programmer changed the code a bit so it could back up 180k and 360k disks.


#4235526 CASSETTE POWER

Posted by sparkdrummer on Sun Mar 10, 2019 9:28 AM

I thought I'd start a thread on the power of cassettes discussing utilities, games, hardware,etc.

 

I'll start it out with a dsk of utilites by Tonny Brouwer.

The most interesting program on the disk is Tape Streamer. It will copy a ss/sd disk to tape and back again. I tried it a couple of times and it seemed a bit fickle, but did work. I compared the "streamed" disk from tape to the original disk and it was exactly the same. I think this program runs at about 1200 baud as does other software on the dsk. Source files are on the disk as well.

#4235211 Game controls: keyboard ESDX, WASD, joysticks

Posted by sparkdrummer on Sat Mar 9, 2019 6:20 PM

I have changed many CB and XB games to use ESDX when they were configured in a way I didnt like. I usually configured the . (Period) key as the fire/action key because Im left handed.
