#4260649 TIPI - TI-99/4A to Raspberry PI interface development

Posted by wolhess on Thu Apr 18, 2019 4:52 PM

I did some tests with Tursis scratchpad loader and with the paragon ea5 loader and both are working for me.

Now I can run ea5 programs and I get access to PI.http... from standard XB.

Thank you.

Using the tipi clock for other applications is a useful extension.
A reminder / alarm function is also on my to do list for my menu program


#4257762 MEGA MENU for TIPI

Posted by wolhess on Sun Apr 14, 2019 11:42 AM

MEGA MENU v1.8  -  Update:   Apr/14/2019

 

Today I release the version 1.8 beta of my menu program.

Attached File  MM18.zip   10.78KB   6 downloads

 

and the updated documentation:

Attached File  MegaMenu18.pdf   296.81KB   7 downloads

 

 

To install the updated version without trouble, please copy the new files from the MM18.zip file into the TIPI.MM folder. Your entire menu configuration is retained.

 

Changes to the last version 1.4 are:

- multilingualism for English and German
  Now it is easy to create other language files maybe in Italian, Spanish or French.
  If you look at the new updated MM18.dsk, there are some new files:
  1. MM-SETUP                 setup for language, language-file, printer and screen copy counter
  2. MM-GER                     German language file
  3. MM-ENG                     English language file

- new menu screen commands CTRL+P for print screen and CTRL+S for save screen

- Speech Synthesizer support for program start, print menu screen and save menu screen
   I added that because the load time and the screen dump times have become very long. I hope that
   will improve a lot if I can compile the main program.

 

TIP: If you edit the language file with EDIT40 and add your name at position “T002$:” after the colon
       you have a personalized menu system with your name in the greeting line.

 

Here is the complete package with all programs in DSSD 80 TRACK disk image files.

An Overview of the DSK content and the copy paths is in the pdf on page 10!

#4253424 MEGA MENU for TIPI

Posted by wolhess on Sun Apr 7, 2019 1:47 PM

Hello to all here in this phantastic forum,

 

today it is time to share a small programm to access a lot of games and applications in an easy way.

 

I named the program "Mega Menu"

 

it is currently in German but I add a manual in English and it works only with a TIPI system from 1.0betav34 and RXB.
So I know I have much room for improvements.

Attached File  IMG_2488.JPG   74KB   1 downloads

But the program is not just another menu program.
- It shows date and time from the tipi system

- The program shows the RXB version used

- There are three screen displays with 30 menu entries each

- It shows the mapped folders to the drives DSK1, DSK2 and DSK3

- Use CTRL + 1 to 3 to change the drive mapping from every screen

- Use CTRL + D to catalog DSK1 - 3

- Use CTRL + C to configure your own programs in the selection screen or make a individual submenu

 

For more informations please read the MEGA MENU Manual

#4253229 Is something wrong with MYTI99.COM?

Posted by wolhess on Sun Apr 7, 2019 3:49 AM

Hi Omega,

 

what you mentioned in your first post,
 
I just found out that the chess program can also be accessed through Stuart's TI Browser.
 
Wow, now we have two ways to the chess program.



#4253228 Is something wrong with MYTI99.COM?

Posted by wolhess on Sun Apr 7, 2019 3:39 AM

solved!

 

if you try to connect on a PC to HTTP://MYTI99.COMyou will get the following message:  

 

Please use www.myti99.com Instead

 

I configured the  URI Path in my Tipi system

to:

 

URI1=http://www.myti99.com

 

now all Tipi applications are working again.




#4252270 TIPI - TI-99/4A to Raspberry PI interface development

Posted by wolhess on Fri Apr 5, 2019 1:47 PM

I can imagine starting a program in a timely manner via my menu program, for example to indicate an appointment.
The purpose of the menu program is for me an overview of time and date, the XB version used and the drives / directories mapped in the Tipisystem. Furthermore, I can easily start my saved programs and games.
The program can be configured as desired, for example any submenus can be configured by itself.
I plan to publish the program as a beta test at the weekend.
It is not finished yet, currently It needs a FG99,RXB and the Tipi sytem and it is in German language.
I plan to make it multi language, to support standard XB, compiling with XB256 and Support for classic99.

I do Not know your ALC scheduler, so I‘m Not aware what it does.
What is a KISS system?

For my daily TI hobby I use the TIPI Clock in my XB menu program.

 

From here I start all programs and games. That was the first thing I added in my TIPI system.

 

The MAIN menu

TIPI Tools

Games in EA5 format

So the Clock is one of the most used service from tipi after Storage and Interneticon_smile.gif




#4251669 XB Game Developers Package

Thank you for providing the new version.

I will test it tomorrow.

The response times are much better than in the basic version, time for a few more Stratego games.


#4251469 From Extended Basic Program to FlashRom99 in 12 minutes and 20 seconds

Posted by wolhess on Thu Apr 4, 2019 9:08 AM

 

wolhess, thank you for your help.  I tried it and the XB program works just like it did showing the formatted output that Omega posted.  However, both the EA5 and BIN file output looks like:

 

attachicon.gifTCLKOutput.jpg

 

I have attached my source files along with the XB, EA5 and BIN files.

 

attachicon.gifTipiclock.zip

Hi twoodland,

 

the tipi also accept variable 19, so the compiler / XB256 will also work.

 

It seems that the compiler reads the entire clock-string into a variable. As in XB does the command LINPUT.

 

Here is my try in XB and EA5 with the same output in XB and in EA5. The EA5 works in 4ADOS too.

Press ENTER for just a second to exit the program

Change line 180 to
180 open #1:"PI.CLOCK",DISPLAY, INPUT, FIXED 19

Then it should work

And of course the compiler is very practible and easy to use.

 

Thank you to Vorticon for the game and thank you to senior_falcon for this compiler tool.
