  1. I have a few of these stories as well my favorite being the guy who hired me and my partner to install Novell Netware clients on his new windows 3.0 Network machines and then refuse to pay us for the job because we found a bug in Windows 3.0 that Microsoft refused to fix that would basically erase the network driver from memory once you've loaded windows they fixed it in 3.1 of course Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
  2. Telco but no color of course borders are cluster to do with colors but prob easier to do with 40 col
  3. The hard part is making the file 80 columns.. as the ansi editor in the pc doesn't give a rip about columns I created the design in a ansi editor, then threw that file into the pi, did a fold on it to get it to 80 columns cat t8xtmm.txt |fold -w 80 -s >MAINMENU.txt then pulled that file into tiwriter and made the adjustments for CR's and the end of file codes ..
  4. Back up.. and you gotta give me more than 20 seconds to respond to a sysop page Beery
  5. Internet is down thanks Comcast! Whole town is out Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
  6. WOO! after too much time of kajiggering I have a working ansi main menu whew
  7. You'll get faster service by attaching or linking to the programs Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
  8. You can get a tipi peb card and Sams peb card in my store at arcadeshopper.com also I have sidecar versions of them if you prefer not to use the peb Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
  9. Yes those are both required do you have an expansion box? Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
  10. It comes with the files to load in your finalgrom and instructions Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
  11. couple more issues if you select change width at the main menu, it defaults to ANSI even if i start with ASCII im having trouble importing ansi into a 80 file since it's obviously wider than 80 .. will continue experimenting
  12. That fixed it thanks It's going to be a pain getting ANSI into the files I have an idea about using Matt's .txt file name auto conversion though Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
  13. Yes Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk

  16. Nice I'll check it out Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
  17. well found it in the cyc.. so 6.1. Additional partitioning instructions for 512K only The amount of memory available for partitioning is the total storage capacity (512K) MINUS expansionmemory (32K) or 480 Kbytes. You may select any whole number value for the Print Spooler and any whole number value, up to themaximum value of 400 for the Ramdisk, provided the sum of the two values equals a total of 480. CALL PART (x,y)x = 400 and y = 80 or x = 0 and y = 480 Any number combination between the two extremes, detailed above, can be used when partitioning the512K Memory Expansion Card. 7. Special commands for Ramdisk and Print Spooler 7.1. Ramdisk The device name for Ramdisk is "RD". 1.Once the card has been partitioned between Ramdisk (RD) and Print Spooler (PS), a simple commandinstructs the Ramdisk to emulate a floppy diskette or "turns off" the emulation as follows: CALL EMDK(1 or 0) where CALL EMDK(1) instructs RD to emulate DSK1. and CALL EMDK(0) "turns off" the DSK1 emulation. The Ramdisk portion of the 32/128/512K Memory Expansion card can also be used to emulate not only"DSK1", but also DSK2, DSK3, DSK4, DSK5. The command to perform this is: CALL EMDK(X) where X is either 0 to turn off the DSKX emulation or 1-5 to emulate either one of disk drives 1-5. 13 TEXAS INSTRUMENTS HOME COMPUTER 2.A volume or diskette name is given to RD (RDSK1) as follows: CALL VOL("volume-name") The purpose of a volume name is to allow a program to access the Ramdisk in the form ofDSK.VOLNAME.FILE-NAME. This is useful in applications such as Multiplan where the softwarelooks for "DSK.TIMP.file-name" for the program files. 3.To get a directory listing of all files in the (Ramdisk) directory from the TI Basic or Extended Basicmonitor, enter: CALL RDDIR 7.2. Print Spooler The device name for the Print Spooler is SP, SP/1, SP/2, or SPPIO corresponding to RS232, RS232/1,RS232/2 or PIO ports respectively. To abort the Print Spooler, in Basic Command Mode, enter: CALL ABSP The Print Spooler may be used only for output and you can address the Print Spooler with only one portat a time. Before using another RS232 port, the previous buffer must have been emptied. To use the Print Spooler portion of RAM, you first need to partition some of the memory for this task. Youmay "spool" output to your printer connected to either the PIO, RS232, or RS232/2 ports of the computer.To perform this, simply change the names used in the "OPEN" statement to SPPIO, SP (or SP/1). or SP/2respectively. To abort this command, simply type CALL ABSP to abort spooling to any of the 3 ports. Pleasebe advised not to use the same ports as used in spooling as are used in normal I/O. This will cause theSpooler to become inoperative. Also, do not use the PIO and RS232 ports at the same time when spoolingto one of them. This also will cause spooling to stop. One last word about print spooling on the TI-99/4(A) is in order. When the Print Spooler is invoked, thedata going to the printer is actually sent first to the RAM memory allocated to the Spooler and then to theprinter. The data is sent to the printer on demand and allows the computer to perform another task at thesame time. The spooling is transparent to the user, in that it steals CPU cycles not being used by thecomputer when the computer is idle such as during data entry or the like. In actuality your TI-99/4(A) nowbecomes a multi-tasking computer similar to more advanced professional or mini-computers. 14
  18. this eprom makes it work identical to the myarc ramdisk I looked and the manual ISNT on whtech, will need to fix that.. might be here in the forums as well
  19. I can't recommend Hummingbird Eproms (atrax27407) enough, you can also order his eproms in my store

  21. No he said that's what he tested it personally on WHAT VERSION ARE YOU USING
  22. Ok I looked and it looks like I uploaded the wrong file I'll get that fixed and update you when it is Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk
