  1. In stock and will have these at PRGE Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  2. I can do that. Just make it as high res as possible. Better the res the better the quality Also be careful with copyright and trademarks. TI doesn't care about the old stuff but that doesn't mean others feel the same way Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  3. no.. basically there are 5-6 keyboard types for the TI.. 4-5 of those are mechanical.. the last is the mitsumi membrane keyboard.. if the computer was built before 1983 likely it has a mechanical keyboard.. the best keyboards for the 4/a in my opinion were the surplus beige ones they sold at radio shack.. super nice mechanical ones..
  4. Sounds like it's easier to build a new sidecar one with grom emu Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  5. pcode is an operating system.. it'd be more likely to be recreated in the finalgrom99 than the TIPI which is a file/network device Greg
  6. My favorite so far has been the RAID drive for a dell server that showed up stuffed in a priority mail cardboard envelope..no static protection no bubble wrap.. no bag just the bare drive.. and it was handled so well it was hanging out of the corner of the envelope where it had punctured the cardboard .. needless to say i didn't try it i just did a eBay return immediately with photos
  7. the book was infinitely better than the movie yes.. They just left out the entire point his other book is interesting too, especially since I was living in Beaverton OR. until just recently.
  8. also i recommend a gotek with the flashfloppy firmware over the HxC, much less expensive.. i build them as well or you can hack your own
  9. I also sell disks for basically cost on arcadeshopper.com of popular utilities and tools
  10. the games are on tape and disk for the ADVENTURE module
  11. The most effective is using a serial cable and HDX. It's in the FAQ pinned post under transferring files from a pc. You don't need to modify your rs232 to do it.. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  12. Get the emulator package it comes with a bunch you have to convert back to wav tho Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
  13. note: Return to Pirate's isle on the TI-99/4a was the first "graphic adventure" sold (according to Scott Adams)
