  1. Hey, they sell plenty of retro dedicated consoles, and I look it as it's worth a shot. Atari has been down for more then 15 years, I'm sure Atari would react with a "what do we got to lose". On another note, the pessimism on this notion of bringing back the contest is awful. It's not about prizes, it's about finishing what we started 30 years ago.
  2. Then I geuss it's settled? Let's start this petition!
  3. I believe it's rumored Tramiel has the Philosopher's Stone (Airworld prize), Crown of Life (Waterworld prize) and the Sword of Ultimate Sorcery (grand prize). Last I heard, the Fireworld winner who got the chalice still has it and the Earthworld winner supposedly melted down the talisman but kept the tiny sword that was on it which is a shame since it was a rare piece of videogame history.
  4. I think that if something like this was started it might be a major turning point in retro gaming. That being said one could say that the treasures made by Atari for the contest are property of the Atari Corporation, and that he technically stole the treasures (the bastard) because share holders own a company not a single person (though I'm not sure Atari was publicly traded) regardless he should relinquish the treasures, for the good of video game history.
  5. I was wondering if there is an online petition trying to get Atari to reinstate the Swordquest competition. If not is there anyone here who has the desire to sign such a petition if formulated. I mean it wouldn't be difficult, all Atari would have to do is sell some dedicated consoles, or plug n'play games with the four games on it; and or release them for the PC, PS3, and Xbox on various online stores.
  6. I have a feeling that the ti-99/4a community is dieing.

      Well at least we have good TI/99 BBS's out there. That is a great thing at least.

  8. thanks for that, I've been trying to find some fiad files for use in cs1er so I can convert them to .wav, and load them into my ti-99 thru my laptop. and i'll be sure to check out the programming forum
  9. I was wondering if there are any fiad file archives, because I'm desperately searching, and I can't find any ti-99/4a fiad files on the internet at all. Can anyone help?
