  1. I wasn't even able to get it started. I think I just jumped in with both feet before fully understanding HOW it worked. Thank you so much Matt for the gentle nudge. Knowing the device error is not something to worry about and using this info has got me rolling. Still kinda bummed I couldn't figure it out on my own. I've still got a lot to learn and look forward to it but at least I can save myself from spinning my wheels. Great work on all of this (TiPi, Force Command, FCMENU, etc) by the way.
  2. So I have had my FinalGROM for a couple weeks and now just got my TiPiPEB and have it set up with s Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. When I try to run Force Command I get a "device not found" error and I can't run FCMENU. I have read through all the documentation and I think I have the FC directory in the correct spot but I feel like a total Noob on this and I know I'm missing something so gosh darned obvious it's driving me insane. Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Very cool. And the C64 saver has a circuit that cuts off the 9V rail if the power supply fails which usually causes a spike that kills one or two of the main chips, I think the video one which is getting very hard to find a replacement for, unless someone has finally developed a replacement. I was thinking the design would just be modified to work with ELPAC supply, though I do believe it is a 5 pin din as well. It was just a thought. Wasn't very expensive to build one either.
  4. So, I am one of the unfortunates that will benefit greatly from the board you are developing and it is greatly appreciated. Mine also didn't come with a power supply and I have an ELPAC replacement on the way. Do you think it would be of benefit to install a version of the C64Saver in line with it to prevent a POOF situation? I built one to use with my Commodore 64 as those original power supplies are almost guaranteed to go and kill some of the hard to find chips.

    Gotek Drives

    I got the original design off thingiverse but it was for a 128x64 OLED whereas I had the .91" 128x32 one so I modified it (poorly I must say) by adjusting the led window/mount, adding 2 holes for the leds and one for the rotary encoder. Here's the link to the original design. Mine is not one worth sharing. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4237727 He really did a bang-up job with his design.

    Gotek Drives

    Yeah, I just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger on a Lotharek with the exchange and postage but as soon as they released an HXC firmware for the gotek I hooked it up. Found a model and 3D printed a mount that let's me have a 5 1/4, a 3 1/2 and a gotek all in the original opening of the PEB. Loving it.
  7. Would these books be still available by any chance?
  8. Yeah, I'm definitely in for a new one for a CC9900 sidecar. Mine never had the disk controller and I was just happy to get one fairly cheaply at all.
  9. There is a second plug on the front of the console
  10. Well after another hiatus, a new wave of nostalgia has hit and I fired up the 99/4A, the CF7+ and the cassette drive to transfer some of the tapes I got in a batch of stuff a few years ago and Iran into the same issue as Keith. And the CALL FILES(1) and NEW - in TI Basic did the trick. Anything over 23 or so blocks wouldn't fit. The work around wouldn't work in Extended Basic either, just TI Basic. Well it only took me a couple of hours plugging and unplugging, running around until I found this thread and I want to say a huge thanks to you Black Box.

  12. Can add my appreciation to the list as well. Cartridges and controller were VERY well packed and stuff was here very quickly. Highly recommended and will do business with again.
  13. Just got everything. Wow. I've never had stuff packed so well. Thanks again.
  14. ​Ha. I was going to say it was a long way to travel. And $7000 US? Holy hell. Hold on to that one. You'll be able to retire if you ever sell it.
  15. Here are my Genesii. I have the Majesco one coming in the mail and I'm pretty sure that's the last model I'll ever be able to get. LaserActive, TeraDrive just too expensive for me.
