  1. I can supply a couple of GENEVE Boot EPROM variants (all created by Tony Knerr). There are two variants of Vn 1.0 which presents a menu and allows booting from a SCSI device. One is for a GENEVE with the GenMod and the other is for non-Genmod GENEVEs. There is also a variant of V .98 which disables the RAM check. I can also do the standard Vn .97 and .98 in either Genmod or non-Genmod configurations. Contact me by PM if you are interested.
  2. F18A has much smaller VRAM - 16K as opposed to 192K with a 9938. At least that is what I was told when I considered buying one from Matt.
  3. Since I have published the source, anyone who wants to do it - go ahead. At the present time, however, there is no 4 MB SAMS card available to test it on.
  4. The F'web Program Editor (i.e., for source code) produces D/V80 files without tabs as well.
  5. If you use (P)rint (F)ile and print to a disk, the "artifacts" which are the tab settings aren't transmitted. You get only the text.
  6. After lots of planning (and the genius of Jim Brain) there is finally a way to substitute a standard 2764 EPROM for the rare TMS2564 that is used in some of the original TI gear. The adapter boards are now available on his web store either as bare boards or as complete units. https://store.go4retro.com/vintage-computer/2564-adapter/
  7. There is an XB program to create "pastel" colors by alternating pixels of different colors. I have it in my library somewhere - I just have to find it. I couldn't find the program in my library. However, I did find the original article and listing. It appears in the January 1997 issue of MICROpendium on page 38. It purports to create 120 shades of color. Enjoyi
  8. Do I understand correctly that FORCE COMMAND is only of use with an FG99?
  9. I've got mine on my Horizon boot menu.
  10. The version on the ERRORFREE site is 3.2.5
  11. Which floppy drive controller?
  12. Here is the complete set of source code and program files from the very beginning (AMSTEST1) from Shawn Baron's initial release through the revisions and updates that myself and Bruce Harrison did over the years. The current version is AMSTEST4. Enjoy! AMSTEST.dsk
  13. The old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" comes to mind. Some folks will rush to buy the "newest, shiniest bauble in the basket" regardless of whether it fulfills the purpose they had in mind for their TI system. Those are the folks who buy something just to have it. They will tire of the new accessory and move on to the next "exciting" one as soon as it appears on the market. On the other hand, there are bona fide collectors who endeavor to have an exemplar of each new piece of hardware that is produced to add to their chronological collection of produced TI gear. They typically retain and keep these items whether or not they install it in their system (or actually use it). Then, there are those who wish to have a true legacy system and only keep those accessories that were around when TI was active in the computer market and the concurrently-produced accessories were around. The bottom line is that, if your system does what you need it to do, there is little advantage to replace old TI-compatible gear with something newer, just to say that you have it. Nothing really ever becomes redundant except in the mind of the user.
  14. OK - I found someone who remembers. Thanks Jon Guidry. TI99-4A is Ton Wills' OLUG TI994A is Tony's OLUG
  15. There were two TI99-4/A groups. I think(?) Tom's was "TI99/4A" and Tony's was "TI99/4-a" but I'm not sure which was which.
