#3817732 Getting BASIC prog in a remote textfile running on a TI?

Posted by blakespot on Mon Jul 31, 2017 3:11 PM

So, I finished getting the BASIC program entered in a text editor and I got Classic99 running on Windows. I pasted the text in (pasted fine) and it runs in emulator. I saved it out to a DSK device and a file appears in the DSK directory. Can I send that file to the TI via serial using TIMXT and save it to a physical floppy on the TI and run it in XB? Or will that not work with that file C99 created?

I bought this in 1987 to use not with a Macintosh but with my Atari 520ST fitted with the Magic Sac cartridge, part of a Macintosh emulator by David Small that worked amazingly well.

I wrote a blog post that's a little more story-telly than normal for my site. In case anyone might enjoy a little walk down memory lane:

#3327117 How is BattleSphere not available?

Posted by blakespot on Mon Sep 21, 2015 8:29 PM

Is there no way to clone the ROM of the carts to spread BattleSphere to users? Is the author against this? Is it technically impossible? 


It seems insane that this game is not in the hands of every Jaguar owner.


Does the author not want this?

Does this mean the ability to load additional ROMs is still there?

Yes. Read our forum thread (in the post) for the drill.
