  1. You can load these from within Magellan.
  2. Just don't make each game run for too long. Edit the video to make it short and sweet - include some fun and interesting moments and silly outbursts. Well, easier said than done.
  3. No. The TI-99/4 has only one set of uppercase - no lowercase - or just the same. The height of these characters are mostly 6 pixels, whereas the TI-99/4A has uppercase about 7 pixels and the "lowercase" at 5 pixels in height. The memory allocated in GROM for "lowercase" is 6 pixels high, maybe indicating that a more true lowercase was planned at some stage.
  4. Doesn't the ISR under normal circumstances try and read the QUIT key ? That in itself might interfere.
  5. It's not here at my Netflix in Denmark. But thankfully I've seen it previously (on something called YouSee). Very nice. There's another series called High Score (on Netflix here at my end). It's an absolutely must see !!!
  6. Here's one ... Click to get bigger version.
  7. I don't have supercart, fg or fr in physical form, but I'll manage.
  8. Junkman is a relative easy thing to redo. Hope asmusr and tursi can jump in and confirm.
  9. Is it clear or it is unclear ?
  10. Opry99er once try and help, but was left out in the cold. So yes, it does indeed seem to be about control. Democracy vs. control. I know what's the easier option.
  11. So you're referering to something more than 6 years ago. The link is even broken. But thanks for at least being somewhat open about what shortcuts were taken. I will always try and stand by my word. I'm sure I was as honest as I could at the time.
  12. If one was dedicated and had the time, it wouldn't take long to recreate this. What does someone like asmusr say ?
  13. All fine. But this private mail stuff. Why all the secrecy ? Control ? Isn't it a thing of the past ?
  14. Extended Basic and Mini Memory. Extended Basic gave access to sprites. It quickly presented issues with timing (collision detection and lack of speed (compared with other Basics)). Mini Memory. This was a relatively cheap way to get around Basic and Extended Basic, and get to the speed of most of the other popular computers. Was fun for a while. 768 bytes was like a limit, unless you got rather advanced (which the other computers really didn't require). I even got the 32 Memory Expansion, but overall view demanded I'd move to the C64.
  15. Thanks. And my sympathies too. Sounds bad. Last Christmas I was ill, and sneezing and coughing felt like explosions inside my head. Luckily I'm not anywhere near that otherwise.
  16. Thanks. I'll write you a PM (Personal Message).
  17. Thanks for the offer. I'll write you a PM (Personal Message).
  18. Thanks. I know the game doesn't look impressive, but I know quite a few who still think it's a great relaxing game - on the Atari 2600.
  19. The game I looked at the code, and the last changes I made was March 15th. Gamedesign and programming har plummeted big time. The Corona has changed quite a few priorities. The last thing I was doing, was redesigning the ball movement and collision detection. Often it's said, if it works, don't change it. The optimization and decision flow should however save a lot of CPU. And quite a few future games and demos could take advantages of this (like having more objects in a frame). Right now, I'd like to get back in some gamedesign and programming, but the feel is more for a detour (other game projects). The headache Since part of some "reopening of society", I've been around, including acupuncture, MR- and CT-scans. Next up is a neurologist in a few days. Have had this thing for a year now.
  20. Okay, that doesn't work for me. It says "Loading..." and it doesn't respond (ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT). Tried FileZilla. Anonymous FTP logon used to work. Password seems to be required (guess I also used to pass an empty string).
  21. http://ftp.whtech.com Doesn't ask me for anything. I just get in.
