  1. This is a great site. Please keep up the great work you are doing.
  2. I did a quick google translation of the Italian text into English. See the attached file. You should be able to enter the text of the game directly into extended basic as this was how the original program was created. Change the Italian into English and run. You will still need to translate the Italian tokens into English. These are in lines 523 thru 535. The rest of the game looks pretty playable as is. Though, I haven't tested it. Italian to English.txt
  3. I suggest that you look at the Atari - Best Electronics web site < http://www.best-electronics-ca.com>. The last time I purchased the Atari 1020 Color Plotter color pen set (4 colors) CO61420-01. They were $6.00 per set. If they still have them in stock, this is a much better price and they are the same pens.
  4. PM sent, looking forward to playing.
  5. Opry99er kind of beat me to it. Couldn't you just port the TI Print/HDX software over to the TIPI and use a USB printer? In other words, substituting the TIPI for the PC.
  6. Amazing work! I will definitely want one.
  7. I would love to obtain a TI Solid State Thermal Printer PHP1900. It was my very first of many many printers and deserves a place of honor.
  8. They still are around $50 to $100. See: https://www.ebay.com/itm/TI-Texas-Instruments-CC-40-Compact-Computer-18K-with-Hex-Bus-New-Extra-Book-/282861738748 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Texas-Instruments-Compact-Computer-40-/122983516740 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Texas-Instruments-Compact-Computer-40-TI-CC-40-Works-vintage-/132506446488? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Texas-Instruments-Compact-Computer-40-Works-Ships-Worldwide-/112840524075 Plenty of fish in that sea.
  9. I think for me it was one of my earliest peripheral purchases. The TI Thermal Printer. It allowed me to print out my programs, print banners, print receipts and many other things. I loved that beast. It is probably not going to be in the top 10 but it was my favorite.
  10. I have always wanted a GRAM Kracker. So, that's at the top of my list. Next in line would be the TI Solid State Thermal Printer. I had one on my original TI and I would love to have one again.
  11. The lower left seems to be the most pleasing.
  12. I own both a delta printer (Sintron) and a cartesian printer (Anet A8). The delta printers, while they do have a wow factor are very finicky to keep dialed-in and printing properly. The cartesian printers are much easier to work with. I'd say once a week or so, I re-level my Anet and reset the z-axis height. This takes approximately 15-20 minutes and is easy todo, just tedious. You also have to spend some time dialing-in each new type of printer filament that you use - PLA, PETG, PPLA, ABS... . Overall, it is very enjoyable. Regards, Michael
