#3290039 Beyond Parsec Cartridge

Posted by TI-GAMER on Fri Jul 31, 2015 3:03 PM

I just picked up a working Beyond Parsec Cart and Manual for $40. I have been wheeling and dealing with this guy for 2 weeks. He originally wanted over $100 and I wasnt willing to go that high. I thought I had an agreement around $50 but he never got back with me. I guess he was trying to sell it for more and no one purchased it. I offered him $40 today and he accepted.

#3284935 TUNNELS OF DOOM - In Depth!

Posted by TI-GAMER on Fri Jul 24, 2015 5:57 PM

OK..... I see Post's referring to Tunnels of Doom on a regular basis and again today.

Tunnels of Doom is my All Time Favorite TI-99 Game. Maybe it's because I grew up during the times of playing Dungeons and Dragons on paper for hours on end with some of the neighborhood kids. Tunnels of Doom was Awesome bc you could play it if no one else was available. It had sound and color and the graphics were OK (Considering the 1980's)

 

Anyways.... Can we come up with a Compilation of all of the Tunnels of Dooms games (or TOD Style and Remakes) for the TI-99/4A Computer System and list them here? Any detailed information as to who also made them would be helpful and how good they were compared to the Base Game.

#3266684 Help with DSDD Floppy Disk Drive Setup

Posted by TI-GAMER on Sun Jun 28, 2015 2:32 PM

 

You can only use one of your Qumetrak drives as DSK3. then.

 

You may want to change to the 40/40/80 eprom set so you can use your drives as DSK1. and DSK2.

 

 

Gazoo

In this configuration the 80TRK drive would have to be external correct?

#3264042 The Idea Thread

Posted by TI-GAMER on Wed Jun 24, 2015 6:15 PM

This is a really cool Calculator that Calculates how large of a Power Supply you would need for a computer based upon your personal configuration. You could also apply it to the TI or at least come close.

#3263163 Has anyone played this game? (Mr. Chin)

Posted by TI-GAMER on Tue Jun 23, 2015 1:01 PM

 

Yeah we have some 512k megacarts I sell the roms here (look for games 1-4) and utils

http://www.arcadesho...tegory=12497082

 

Also the xb2.7 suite is another megacart

 

And there's the 2048k board which has games 1-4 all in one!  Available from Jim (kazuul) and someday probably my site as well.. the 512k boards are here: http://www.arcadesho...tegory=12497083

 

(most of these require 32k memory expansion) 

 

Greg

Greg,

 You are alive!!! I have been trying to get in contact with you about my order that I placed on May 8 and have not heard from you since late May. I am just happy that you are OK. Can you give me a shout please concerning the status? I promise that I wont bite :-D

Thank  You




#3254325 TI Related -- Ebay / Heads Up Notice

Posted by TI-GAMER on Tue Jun 9, 2015 12:05 PM

You won it didnt you? You won all 3 cards you Lucky Bastard!!! LOL

I was bidding on the 512K Ram Card

I'm Jealous!

 

I need to give a Shout Out to (ROB)

I received the MG Update kit and it was LIGHTNING FAST shipping!

Thank you for sending it out so quickly!!!




#3252983 TI Related -- Ebay / Heads Up Notice

Posted by TI-GAMER on Sun Jun 7, 2015 4:52 PM

 

Yes, I am also dreaming of the controller, but I worry it may be too expensive.

 

If you do in fact win it, the MG Upgrade Kit would be a nice addition. I have one on the way and Rob shipped it immediately after payment was sent and most likely has more in stock.




#3252938 TI Related -- Ebay / Heads Up Notice

Posted by TI-GAMER on Sun Jun 7, 2015 3:56 PM

Who won the Triple Tech Card from MDUDE? It went for over $300 which is shocking and was kind of expected due to all the interest. You figure the CorComp Floppy Controller goes for $200 plus by itself.

 

My money is on Schmitzi LOL




#3251674 Floppy Disk Controller

Posted by TI-GAMER on Fri Jun 5, 2015 6:15 PM

 

I heard you bought them from Hummingbird direct no?   I send the orders to him unless he can't do it then I burn them on a case by case basis.. except for the 1k/2k cart images which I burn myself (and uber) 

Greg,

 He contacted me after seeing the post so we are set for the Corcomp Upgrade Chips. BTW... I ordered that Straight Through Cable that you linked to on ebay for use with the HDX Card once you are finished with it so I should be all set.

Thanks Again




#3250353 Making Holes In The Peripheral Expansion Box

Posted by TI-GAMER on Wed Jun 3, 2015 4:11 PM

For Round Holes I always prefer a Hole Saw made specifically to cut metal with very fine teeth. (The photo is just for reference) They come in all sizes.

I am not sure what would be the best for a square one but a Dremel wouldnt be too bad.

#3249465 Floppy Disk Controller

Posted by TI-GAMER on Tue Jun 2, 2015 11:52 AM

Well I did it!!

I convinced a local TI Enthusiast to sell his CorComp Floppy Disk Controller to me that he has been refusing to sell. I paid a pretty penny for it but from what everyone was offering, I paid right in line with what seems to be a fair value. I just didnt want to drop that kind of money on it but figured I would not have the chance again or at least for some time as I dont see them up for sale very often.

 

I noticed in the poll there was 2 versions of this card.

  1. CorComp 9900 DD
  2. CorComp 9900 DD – MG-update

What are the differences and how can you tell by looking at the card?
