  1. It's at https://sdlmame.lngn.net
  2. Thanks for this, Lee. I had given up on FileZilla and moved to WinSCP which works fine.
  3. I can't seem to find MakeCart anywhere.
  4. I think I have Paste XB working on my Fedora Linux wine/classic99 setup. I open classic99 my running "wine start /unix /home/myname/classic99/classic99.exe" Doing that allows me to get to the DSKs folders properly. I opened notepad which is the Microsoft notepad. I typed text in there and copied and pasted to XB.
  5. I removed Cygwin from my Windows PC as I've not used it much any more. I do have the MAME build tools enviroment since I compile MAME from git frequently. The MAME build tools enviroment uses c:\msys64 and I build in a Linux-like enviroment (win32env.bat). Bash, test, wget are all available in this environment so I only needed to install unzip with "pacman -S unzip". After that, I installed the MAME executable to c:\mame0218b and copied your mameprep_cygwin file into that directory. From the msys64 environment [MINGW64] c:\msys64\src, I cd'd to c:\mame0218b and executed "bash mameprep_cygwin". Voila,everything worked as planned. I have the "MAME Launchers" folder on my desktop and everything seems to work like the Rasbian install.
  6. Since the MAME project was re-licensed under GPL2, MAME has been available for installation from the normal repositories. For Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install mame For Fedora: sudo dnf install mame Mike Dorman
  7. I'm looking forward to the new OoeyGUI!
  8. The attached disk has all 12 adventures on it. I launch this from mame: mame64 ti99_4a advent -ioport peb -ioport:peb:slot8 hfdc -flop1 c:\disks\ALL-ADVENTURE.DSK I use the Software Lists in MAME so it knows where to find the advent cart. The Pirate adventure is on the disk as DSK1.PIRATE ALL-ADVENTURE.DSK
  9. I remember having this. It was a cassette for the Mini Memory and replaced the Line-by-line assembler.
  10. I used to be on the Yahoo group but memory failed me. It looks like it is still there with the files that you added since I had last signed on to the UCSDPascal Yahoo group.

  12. The newest build for Mame/Mess will not play Miner 2049er unless you re-enable the 32kMemory option from slot devices. This is true with either RPK or Software List.
  13. http://www.mainbyte.com/ti99/software/s_carts/ext_basic.html They both should be maintained for historical accuracy. Obviously, the v1.1 is the better choice.
  14. Maybe that's what I've been accidentally doing all along. When I use Remote Desktop to run mame/mess, I have always starting with mame64 ti99_4a -window. That has always worked. Mike
  15. I remember dumping this cartridge back in the day. I could not use the 32K memory or disk since the cartridge got in the way of the PEB. I wrote a small program to dump it by reading a few bytes at a time in Basic and saving it to cassette. When I reconnected the PEB, I read the data from tape and put it into the same memory location. It worked perfectly. I then saved it to disk and converted to a cartridge format. I don't remember that part but it might been CSAVE.
  16. I am not a programmer, but... I doubt that we will see a compiled version of MAME/MESS for the ARM for Windows 8 RT. There are 2 build targets in MAME/MESS for Windows - x86 & X64. These are built using mingw gcc and have libraries that produce Intel binaries. I don't believe there is a way to produce Windows ARM binaries with gcc as that would require Microsoft libraries that were not open. MESS could compile (SDL)MESS for ARMv7 which is used for all the non-Windows builds (Linux, MacOS, BSD). But the resulting binaries would only run on the Linux variant of ARM. Windows RT was a strange beast!
  17. That machine is running Windows 8.1 on an Intel chip. The Windows 8 RT family (now deceased) runs on ARMv7 chips and cannot run any regular Windows software. The only software Windows 8 RT machines can run is software that was compiled for them and distributed through the Windows store. The Win8 RT crowd cannot run Intel software. From my perspective, Win8 RT was Microsoft's attempt at creating an tablet OS like Apple's iOS. iOS is also not compatible with MacOS.
  18. I don't remember that! When I had my real hardware, I had 2 PEBs. The Geneve was with the Myarc HFDC. The TI was connected with a CorComp FDC. I may never have tested that with the TI. This will save me a lot of time in MESS.
  19. Thank you. That worked! Welcome to AtariAge. mdorman
  20. The fixes for TI-99/Sim are now on Marc Rousseau's website and available for download. He has also changed the version number. It is now 0.12.1; the previous version was 0.0.12. I compiled the Linux versions for Fedora (my Linux of choice) and Ubuntu. I had some experience doing this in the past (as well as for Windows). But that was before when I was compiling 32-bit versions. It took a bit to get the SDL and ssl dependencies figured out. They compiled fine and are functional. I also tried it on my Raspberry PI 2. The binary Linux version for armhf ran fine and I tested with Parsec. I have NOT been able to compile the source on the RPI2 (Raspbian). The compiler complains: "g++ error: unrecognized option '--std=c++11'"

  22. Great. I can now use my joystick by going to the P2/P3 options and manually pressing the fire buttons & Up, Down, Left, Right actions. This saves the information into <mess_directory>\cfg\geneve.cfg. It seems though that the default configuration does not map P1, P2, or P3. I am unable to run ABASIC on the .chds I have. It either crashes or hangs. Thanks!
