  1. Looking forward to seeing what you can come up with. Even as is, TICoded is incredibly useful.
  2. Hi. I'm looking for a copy of Treasure Trap, either digital or physical. I have the case and manual but the tape is damaged and I'd like to replace it. Is there a wav file anywhere?
  3. You haven't lived until you have slugged through an entire cricket match...
  4. It looks like the CASE statement cannot appear in an IF statement: IF C=1 THEN CASE X OF 1: PRINT X 2: PRINT X+1 ENDCASE becomes 690 ON -(X=1)-2*(X=2) GOSUB 20000, 20010 and completely ignores the previous IF statement. One additional note about the CASE statement: since it translates into an ON GOSUB, one cannot use GOTO statements in the body of the structure as these will jump out of the associated subroutine and if done often enough will result in a stack overflow.
  5. There is also that secret handshake thing 😉 OLD CS1, are you attending this year? I do need my yearly dose of snarky unadulterated humor! 😁
  6. Can the video device be cloned? I know there was talk by Brain to develop one but it does not look like it panned out... Also I saw a manual for the Printer 80 but not the printer itself. Was that included in the haul? I have been looking for one for a while with no luck...
  7. Out of curiosity, who else is planning to attend in person?
  8. Per Hal, masks will be required for entry into the Library. Excellent. I booked my hotel room. Looking forward to it.
  9. Great news! Given that this is an indoor event and the current covid situation, I assume that masking will be required?
  10. I never really understood the attraction of the MOA. It's just a big mall with an amusement park in the middle. It used to have a large Radio Shack store which was one of the main reasons my wife and kids were able to drag me there occasionally (it's only a 5 min drive from my place), but now that the kids are grown and Radio Shack gone, I have had little incentive to visit (the wife dragging part still happens though😁). Well, if you happen to visit the area again, send me a PM and we can hook up.
  11. While this runs on the Z80, access to the VDP is still cumbersome on the CV regardless as it has to go through the I/O ports of the Z80. I doubt this game is doing any real-time 3D transforms but is likely using sprites with variable magnification. Still very well done and fast!
  12. No idea what any of this means, but I assume it has something to do with remote access of the TIPI? Could come in handy for a future project I have in mind... (lots of self-education required first obviously)
  13. Are you going to be visiting the Twin Cities sometime next week? Would love for us to get together and chat.
