  1. I'm looking forward to the new OoeyGUI!
  2. 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
  3. I remember having this. It was a cassette for the Mini Memory and replaced the Line-by-line assembler.
  4. 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.

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Thank you. That worked! Welcome to AtariAge. mdorman
  14. 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'"

  16. 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!
  17. I started over with a new download of mess0158 in a separate directory and ran the same tests. "Input (general) settings" look right but I still get no response from the joystick. When I look at "Input (this system)" and scroll down to [root:joyport:twinjoy], there are only entries for P2 and P3 - not P1. Doing the same test for ti99_4a and ti99_8, that setting includes the P1 directions and fire action as well as P2/P3. I delete the .cfg directory so that there should be no config settings getting in the way. Mike
  18. I can use the joysticks in Geneve on older versions of MESS - e.g. .104,140. I cannot get it to work in 152 or newer. I am using Logitech Cordless RumplePad for my joystick. It works with all other MESS (ti99 and other) as well as with MAME games. It does NOT work with newer versions. I have yet to get it to work in Geneve since the peb:slot changes were made.
  19. The "Input (this system)" shows me only the floppy & hard drive selections. The "Slot Devices" shows the Joystick toggle on "twinjoy" . I have toggled it off and on with no effect. I have also used the -joystick command line option. I have deleted the cfg directory and geneve.ini.
  20. I don't have a Geneve any longer; but I did run it successfully in MESS. I have a problem with Geneve MESS joysticks but that isn't specific to Don Pan.
  21. This particular tablet is running on an Intel Atom so it will run normal Windows software. The advice is generally sound though for there are a lot of non-Intel Windows RT tablets available. Microsoft sure confuses everyone with their tablet marketing!
  22. Here's what I've found on whtech. Under /geneve/mdos/advanced_basic_software/, there are two files mybeven.zip and mybodd.zip. These seem to contain the individual page scans of the ABASIC manual. Mike
