  1. Any idea what's this card? Computer Inspector doesn't report it. It was inside a II+ clone. Could be an 80 column card? With a switch? (missing) Thx
  2. 64 columns is more readable than 40...
  3. I'm using the native Telnet, invoked by tipi.net.telnet The problem is the standard TI-99 screen resolution. Anyway, good starting point...
  4. Well, having the ability to telnet from the TI-99 console into the Linux PI partition, open us a world of opportunities... I always dream to have a CP/M PEB card, but they are very hard to find. So why not using TIPI with a CP/M emulator? Unfortunatly I don't have a F18A VGA card, so the look is not so nice, but you get the feeling, running dBase II or WordStar. To do that just telnet to your TIPI: - In a folder you have permissions type: git clone https://github.com/jhallen/cpm.git - Enter the cpm folder: cd cpm - Compile the programs: make - Run CP/M from your TI-99 console: ./cpm More details about the CP/M emulator under https://github.com/jhallen/cpm Optional you can download and install the cpmtools that allow you to list, read and write CP/M disk images: sudo apt update sudo apt install cpmtools Have fun...
  5. I purchased a beige TI-99 / 4a with PAL socket in a fleamarket in Egypt. The power button has a blue tag. The Texas screen shows (C) 1981 The strange thing is that it only accepts the original TI modules, as happens in the version of the latest generation consoles. I attach the print on the back, which indicates the Made in USA unit. Anyone have any more information? Thx
  6. I'm looking for: - F18A (first version) - PEB P-CODE Card (UCSD Pascal) Shipping to Italy or Switzerland. Please let me know via PM price and conditions. Thx
  7. On a standard PEB with TI disk controller and single full size floppy disk drive I have problems formatting floppy disks. I have a bunch of DS/DD floppies that I can format with no issues on Apple IIe and IIc or a Olivetti M28 (IBM compatible). I get randomly error 32 or error 41. The Disk Manager (1 or 2 or 3 or 4) recognize that the disk is not formatted, is asking for name, sectors and depending on DM version, if it's SD or DD and SS or DS. However I can read and write on existing original TI floppy disks on the same PEB hardware. Please advise. Thx.
  8. The CC40 multicart built is still available for sale? Thx
  9. Any disk image for 4ADOS, Multiplan and TI-Writer that will work with JS99 in 80 columns with F18A enabled mode? The ones on ftp.whtech.com seem not working. Thx...
  10. Ok. I can do it... any advise to take care how I open it? Any risk to lose pieces or break something?
  11. I found something very strange... and it works!!! A CI-7 interface but with a Centronics male plug. I connect it to a standard parallel printer and it's printing... Looks like something custom made by TI. It doesn't looks home made.
  12. It works... Thank you Stephen!
  13. ti99sim is an interesting emulator that works with no issues on several platforms. Is there any repository of modules? I found games http://www.99er.net/download2/index.php?act=view&id=254but not all the rest (edu, utilities, productivity) I try convert-ctg to convert some bin carts but with no success. Please advise. Thx
  14. Which is the entry to add into modules.xml for V9T9 Java edition? Thx
  15. I got a bunch of floppy disks for the Commodore CBM PET system. On several labels is printed 8050 or 8035. Any way to access to data or programs via MS-DOS? For CP/M I use 22dsk142. Not familiar with Commodore world. Is there any tool for CBM PET disks? Thank you in advance. ---Giancarlo
