  1. I got this computer a few months ago from what I gathered had been probably setting for a really long time in someone's attic. It smelled of smoke and that smell that old attics smell. On the up side since it was probably in someone's attic for years it hadn't yellowed hardly at all. My old Game Gear had to have most of the caps replaced to fix issues with it. On the other hand My TI99/4a has always worked like a charm as well as my 2600 so it depends. I plan to replace the caps anyway, I'll just look them up on the schematics. It's cheap. If that doesn't solve the issue then I'll take a scope to it and look for a variable voltage on the ICs. Maybe GITA is going bad? All I know now is if you let it cool off it goes away.
  2. I am having issue with the video. In another thread I talked about installing a UAV in my 600XL. After I installed it I started having issues with the video getting squirrelly and screen going white after a while. Since I got the 'build yourself' version of the UAV I was told on this board I must had have made a bad solder. I resoldered then eventually bought a new UAV pre-built and still have the same problems. After I let the XL cool for a while it goes back to normal so it is definitely something over heating.
  3. It looks like I'm needing to replace the capacitors on my 600XL. A lot of computers and game systems people sell a pack of all the capacitors needed for usually not much money. I poked around but so far I haven't seen a pack for the XL line (2600, Lynx, Jaguar yes). Ya'll know of anyone selling such a pack for the XL so I don't have to research then buy individual resistors at high cost or get a huge multi-pack.
  4. https://ti99resources.wordpress.com/ is a resource for TI-99 line of computers that I created a little while back. There is over 8gb of software and documentation for the TI-99 computers.

  5. After a long time of procrastination I have finally got around to updating the Mille Borne for the TI-99 in Extended BASIC. I have added some sound effects, some voice CALL SAY("UHOH"), sped up parts of the program and cleaned up some minor bugs that had been long standing. This is 'probably' the last version but I have learned never to say never. The game is XB autoboot and is in .DSK v9t9 format. Enjoy. MILLEBORNE-V340.dsk
  6. Updated the Mille Borne XB game in MyGames to version 3.40. I added sound, voice, sped up the game in several places and fixed some long standing minor bugs. Enjoy. Oh, and it only took me 2 years to get around to it. here is the link to MyGames area: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1RcSrpqSycflj7B57onsvfiYuLI_lLMEY Link to the website: https://ti99resources.wordpress.com/
  7. OK, here is the revised Mille Borne, wider for 80 column, with sound and voice and some bug fixes. Load into ABASIC. AB-MILLEBORNE.dsk
  8. the Geneve runs at 64-74% on a RaspPi 4 according to your chart?
  9. @mizapf have you heard anything about if the latest MAME will run at full speed on the new Ras Pi 4 without over clocking?
  10. I check into them soon after I get the bugs out of my mille borne abasic game and add some color and sound.
  11. Beery, I see you are redoing MDOS, I have a request. Could you put a command line switch in the EXEC & GPL command for speed. A lot of TI99 games could be played with EXEC but are too fast. GPL has a menu speed selection but a command switch on startup would be nice since you could put it in a batch command. Just a thought.
  12. post 8 has the manual in the .zip with the documents.
  13. if i can ever find a non-corrupt version of the 9460 Fortran I'll make another post. And I'll post a BASIC program from time to time too at least.
  14. since Beery is coming out with a 9640news website I'll make this the last post. It's got a few added things to the drives. If you want the docs download the previous post as the docs didn't change. here you go. EDIT: 1st file was corrupt. redownload this on. DISKS.zip
  15. I modified GLOBAL WAR, a ABASIC game, so that it can be run from any drive. it was defaulting to HDS1.DEMO. You enter the drive.subdirectory in the beginning. Nothing else really modified beyond that. Attached in .DSK form. GW.dsk
