  1. Do i put the Menu file on DSK5? Because i did not copy the MENU file, is that maybe the cause it is locking up...hmmm
  2. These seem to work better so far I tested and can assign 3200 sizes, but I have issues when I turn off the Power Startup function, after a while I loose the disks on HRD. Not sure if it is battery related as i replaced these recently as on the pictures above. Now testing with ON. But i do not like pressing the SHIFT key on startup to bypass the HRD. And now testing if the batteries work when the device is powered off for a longer time. Thank so far for all the help!
  3. Hmmm...troubleshooting like crazy this morning ( i put the videos online at my youtube TI99 VIDEOS), but now I also realise that there are newer ROS versions...will try the latest 8.42c and DM2K 2.6 as well.
  4. My highest need to practice a bit more Spot Shot dump. 74.190 lvl 12
  5. For the Horizon3000/Rambo I need to double check it it can copy, seems that disksizes cannot be more than 1600 (so I can have 4 ramdisks with this size DSK5,6,7,8). but I just replaced the old Rechargeable batteries with a system to be more replacable, but it did not fit completely and used a lego brick under it....the card anyway occupies 2 slots in the PEB. Still testing if programs remain if he power is off. (Also note holding the SHIFT key when booting the card with FG99 or XB27 suite otherwise it looks it hangs).
  6. I used XB 2.7 Suite for this, but if you have the programs for EA also will work (go to Fred's website ti99-geek.nl) This is working to copy with DM2K, but list with DM1K S
  7. I just tested the HRD3000/Rambo with DSK5, also could not get it working with FORCECMD, but my TIPI was at >1800 (but it also does not work with my Corcomp Ram512K disk, even when TIPI is at >1000), both were installed in the same PEB slot (maybe should try another). I just dumped the DSRs of all the devices to @F.G. Kaal
  8. What about: * Hen Pecked and Chick Coop (and turn on the lovely sound!) * I believe there are a few more for the TI, need to check on that * (and I believe Defender and a similar version (not on the TI-99/4a)--> Stargate (
  9. Thanks Matt for the ideas, I need to try them out. I have not tried to remove the path, maybe if I remove one of the DSKx. (e.g. DSK3. as empty path), then I can use the real DSK3. floppydrive in parallel. Because some modules like Multiplan, search for a disk called TIMP (TIMultiPlan) DSK.TIMP.xxxxx and I think the UCSD Pascal P-code card as well (last time you mentioned that was not possible with the TIPI ? or maybe create an option for future releases? like DSK4, etc. but then DSK.diskname pointing to a directory, I think that will work). Windows share, I need to investigate as well, that makes it easier to rename files probably (as it is not possible in the browser interface?).
  10. I made the extension now, that works with the manual switch between >1800 and >1000 without opening the PEB box. thank for this idea!
  11. I will try to see if Fred Kaal can change his DM2K program to work with the DSRs. but I am now wondering how do people use TIPI and Diskcontrollers together ? What is the best setup with the TIPI ? >1000 then TIPI is the preferred device for DSK1. DSK2. DSK3. DSK4. but then I cannot access my 5.25 diskdrives (DSK1. and DSK2) and 3.5 inch drive (= DSK3 + DSK4 apparently) as the Diskcontroller is on >1100 and Corcomp ramdisk on >1400 > 1800 for TIPI, then the Diskcontroller at >1100 is the preferred one for DSK1. DSK2. DSK3. and DSK4. and then I cannot save to TIPI DSKx...(or maybe DSK0. ? if Disk Managers allow it) > DSK5, DSK6, DISKR are occupied by the >1400 Corcomp 512K Should there maybe be a kind of variable to set DSKx on the TIPI (e.g. 7, 8 or 9) to have flexibility to save to any DSKx ? (then we can leave it on CRU >1800) (I try to avoid to change the jumper each time to change CRU addresses)
  12. I am managed what i wanted to achieve. Send the Myarc start up disk files from a PC over Wi-Fi to the TIPI (in PEB) and save them on a disk 720kb. I used TIImage tool to create a myarc startup disk, but also used my own because if the GPL,GPM, etc files needed and a changed autoexec including TIMODE and RAMDISK 360 commands (see also this video why this is needed) . Then TIimage tool can export the files to a normal pc directory but i used TIDIR to do this The Myarc disk has files like SYSTEM/SYS, LOAD/SYS, DISK/SYS i renamed these in TIDIR to SYSTEM1SYS, because of the / you will get strange charcters when uploading to the TIPI (and on TIPI you camnot rename files in the http page?) Then with Finalgrom FG99 using the FTPCMD created the myarc disk copying files 1 by 1 (MY TIPI is at CRU <1800 and files in DSK4) CD 1800.DSK4 COPY SYSTEM1SYS 1100.DSK1 Takes a long time 512 blocks ( I feel it can be much more faster, but it works!) And same for all other files, LOAD1SYS, DISK1SYS, AUTOEXEC, GPL, GPM, GPN, GPO, GPLREADME (takes around 1 hour to copy from TIPI to DSK). Now used the Exbas 2.7 suite (ubergrom) And any diskmanger like DM1000 to rename the files DiSK/SYS SYSTEM/SYS LOAD/SYS Then my other system with Myarc, started the floppy and it works to start to the MDOS prompt Then GPL to get into the TIMODE.
  13. The disk controller is the Corcomp DS/DD, with the MG Eproms, need to double check, because the Corcomp ram 512 overwrites the titlescreen. By changing the CRU to <1800 Fred Kaal's DU2K can now read the normal DSK1 to 3, but not DSK6 or DSKR. It can also read DSK0. And then browse in directories, like DSK0.DISK.FORCEFTP. and list the files. However copying from DSK0 gives now errors. (Thus having TIPI on <1000 is better as we can copy multiple files between directories) How does the CRU sequence work? Are DSKs assigned how they appear starting from the lowest number? First 1100, occupies already DSK1. to DSK4. Then 1400 DSK1. to DSK6. And DSKR (no clue why the ramdisk needs 1 to 5) TIPI on 1800 but cannot access DSK1 to 4. Only DSK0 can be reached I will try <1200 to see if that works for DSK0. And explore scripting with the Force cmd tool Let me know if you want me to help testing with the ramdisks
  14. On the retropie i do not get further than around 5600-ish...
  15. @jedimatt42 1400.DSK6 did not work (corcomp ram disk 512) But 1100.DSK1. Worked to copy a file. (But the total disk size looks weird in ftp cmd 65213 But back to a disk mgr 1000 it is all okay 323) Floppy is DS/SD 720k Very cool tool I like it ! I would like to have a * wildcard option To copy multiple files in a directory to disk. (Without entering all filenames one by one) Tomorrow will try with DU2k and other CRU base to see how fast it can copy to the DSK6. (Because i do not have a powersupply connected to it i loose everything there after turning off the PEB). If TIPI can copy fast it solves my problem. (Or find the right pin to backup with power with 12VDC @Ksarul is checking). I can also try the Horizon 3000 + Rambo card to see if ftp cmd works with it, but was planning it for something else. It also then the fastest way to get files from the PC to a floppy disk via a network (i was using RS232 all the time with V9T9 transfer, VDM99 or Fred Kaal tool CM2K something like that). Now it goes over Wi-Fi.
  16. Okay, will try to change the CRU setting on the TIPI to something else.it is now 1000. Maybe it need to be 1200. Dm2k is working to copy on tipi itself. I have force ftp running, but looks i need force cmd.
  17. @jwild I am interested in the Forth program, but @jedimatt42 and others is there an existing disk manager or other program I can use to copy from the TIPI (PEB version) to a normal disk drive on the TI? (I have 2x 5.25 disk drives, 1x 3.5 disk drive as DSK1. DSK2. DSK3 and a DSK6 (CorComp RAM 512) After the TIPI upgrade I have also a DSK4. which I can map to a directory on the TIPI, but somehow I am stuck how to save the files to a floppy drive (preferable with a simple disk manager, like disk utilities)
  18. Is that what it is, i could not figure it out. Always started with speed 1. Agree on the combos or longer than 5 in a row, etc. But excellent game enjoyed it. Took 2.5 hours i believe to get there.... spot shot, love the game! Real TI. 13250
  19. This was fun and good program for the TIPI. There are only a few items I see in v.003: * setup of the chess board (queen selects color), white queen on white d1 and black queen on black d8. * rocade is not possible to the left (long rocade) or right (short) (and probably the rules if one square in between is attacked cannot do the rocade) or when the king is check. * En passant move for the pawn, i cannot remember I tested it. * Check-mate detection.

  21. I quickly correct myself...as i was only reading the arcade button part....and had not tested the arcade panel which just came in.( flying shark is a complete game of course). A bit struggling to configure all buttons to map to TI buttons (retroarch does not seem to work, probably need to do it in TI/SIM itself). But i must say now flying shark feels like playing in the arcade hall.
  22. Re: power strike. Not sure if I completely understood it. But would a retropie + TI99/SIM + real arcade control panel and @Asmusr Flying Shark come close to get some similar experience? 20200426_162249.mp4
  23. It works okay, only the buzzing sound (on the RPI with TISIM) on the TI it is all fine
