  1. Found it on ftpwhtech / articles / games Source code (DIS/VAR) of Munch Man II MUNCH2.DSK Development notes: Munchman II development notes.pdf Module images:
  2. Real Hardware 37945. Game mode (not Tournament mode). Improvements that can be done in the game. 1. Use the firebutton of the joystick as the any key. 2. Once a power pill has eaten honoos are not blue anymore when entering the other screen. Sent from my VIE-L29 using Tapatalk
  3. Manual: http://99er.net/files/Munchman%20II%20manual.pdf FinalGrom or Classic99 munch2C.BIN Module: Game 512K Cart 2 (real or in .bin format for Classic99) (press spacebar second screen option A) Visit: JS99er.net > Software > More > MunchMan II Disk version: Editor Assembler option 5..

  4. Happy New Year! But the next game will be Munchman II (by John T. Philips) "The Monster is Back" Find it on js99er.net (I have the .bin, .dsk, etc., but I am boarding a flight back to Europe).
  5. It would take a lot of hours to figure out how to solve the whole game (without looking into the maps and solution...but I tried with even the 1st 4 hints and it is difficult).
  6. According this picture posted by Ciro: https://web.facebook.com/groups/ti99ers/permalink/10155006748219844/
  7. Quiz: What age are they? Happy New Year 2019 by two Super Models who both have their birthdays this upcoming November: https://youtu.be/_oHf4fXwNuc First see the video, after that go to this hint: Go to History of Texas Instruments' Computers at: http://www.oldcomputers.net/ti994.html For the people who are wondering what he is doing with the volume slider on the TI-99/4, he imagines that he is controlling a fighter jet and the slider is the throttle.
  8. Hmm, when zooming into the picture as far I can see it is another FCTN key (with the black dot) on it, maybe easier to use it, never seen it before. Is it customized or did it ever exist as normal keyboard?
  9. That's a big difference with the arcade version. I think the TI with F18A video enhancement is closer to the Arcade version than any of the other systems. Rasmus?
  10. It works … without a password :-) thanks!
  11. Noted with thanks! Looking forward what the next one will be!
  12. Keep me up to date once there are new boards. mK2 Sent from my VIE-L29 using Tapatalk
  13. Maybe it is your monitor/TV, have you tried other speakers? You only need 1 wire into Audio (Pin 5 for EU or Pin 3 for US) and 1 wire into GND/Common (middle for EU, or pin 2 for US). The only thing you need to be aware is how do you look to the Pins on the plug (inside out or outside in, otherwise they are "mirrored") Sent from my VIE-L29 using Tapatalk
  14. I use a standard DIN 5-pin cable (USA), see pictures, but I remember having a DIN-6 pin (EU) as well with 4x cinch connectors and used that for sound. And use the converters to the smaller 3.5mm plug for Speakers or into a monitor. No soldering required. Sent from my VIE-L29 using Tapatalk
  15. Hi Rasmus, Just a question to port or re-develop a game for the TI-99/4A takes a lot of time I can imagine? (I am not sure because of the TMS9900 9918, etc.) if there is another way to speed up the porting of games (instead of writing them from ground up) ? Like: > Is it possible to create a layer in between to run for example MSX roms or Commodore 64 roms (like a generic software layer?) > or a compiler from MSX to TI-99/4A, ZX-Spectrum to TI-99/4A, etc. ? > (but then of course Pyjamarama would not be that nice as how you have coded it now, fantastic quality). > or with the TIPi interface run other systems (MSX, Spectrum) Roms on the TI-99/4a (no clue if it is possible), but like a kind of adapter/interface or so? It is really cool to see these type of applications running on the real TI-99/4A, (and not hoping to ask the wrong question, but I also ask myself a lot of these games are available online to play already (and also offline on a RetroPie/Raspberry Pi, if someone can locate the BIOS and ROMs). For example: (my kid loves Decathlon and Antartic Adventure, had a lot of fun last night) (but I am still teaching him the TI-99!)

  16. Today (31-Dec-2018) I am having this same issue, I cannot login to FTP WHTECH, I get a login prompt: ftp://ftp.whtech.com/ http://99er.net/ftp.html
  17. Let me know if I need to check something on the TI-99/4 (currently mine are stored in cardboard boxes in Bangkok, but I can access them easily, before flying back to The Netherlands over 3 days). http://atariage.com/forums/topic/218727-ti-99-photos-thread-post-your-systems-here/?p=4018218 I have 2x different TI-99/4 and they have different power supplies: * 1x with normal pins power adapter * 1x with the "big pin" power adapter (which broke and I replaced it with a special meanwell adapter, see PDF for details) Pictures - Side by side comparison: Part 1* http://atariage.com/forums/topic/218727-ti-99-photos-thread-post-your-systems-here/?p=4021546 Part 2* http://atariage.com/forums/topic/218727-ti-99-photos-thread-post-your-systems-here/?p=4021547 Part 3* http://atariage.com/forums/topic/218727-ti-99-photos-thread-post-your-systems-here/?p=4021550 1. Replacing the "big pin", with great help of Ksarul to understand the differences. Hereby is an article (written in Dutch and also published in the TIjdingen).

  18. Latest list of TI and/or Geneve 9640 emulators: Some of them you can see here at YouTube -- channel TI99 VIDEOS (open up all videos): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7jwHlQfNTAKQ9WdKORAnpA/videos?disable_polymer=1
  19. Control Data Corporation - 1983 (after 1982 TI's V2.2 QI (Quality Improved) version, but I am not too sure how test these limitations like non-TI modules in an emulator). Here you can find the roms for CDC: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/241337-ti-994a-beige-consoles/page-2?do=findComment&comment=3296182 Here is the title screen at the left running in the MESS emulation system (nowadays you should run the MAME emulation system).
  20. I thought there were some more glitches, but I just played the ZX-Spectrum one here: http://torinak.com/qaop#!pyjamarama and I saw the same things happening, but I am still learning the game. I first thought that sometimes the lift did not work and I was locked in the room, but later I saw there is a light switch on/off button in one of the rooms, then it works of course. (I did not realise that the 1, 2, 3, 4 are lifts, until I saw the map (see previous post) Now I can see that your TI-99/4A version is also much better with colours/sprite handling, etc. compared to the ZX-spectrum version Other versions: PS. there are also Commodore 64 versions: game play video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3KjKOIWT9M and Amstrad CPC > Help how to start it: https://amstradabandonware.com/en/help > online emulator https://www.juegotk.com/juego/pyjamarama/online.html (but I could not get it started so far with run"pyjama (or alternatives, like run"pyjama.bas
  21. After dying in the video game room Sent from my VIE-L29 using Tapatalk
  22. Wow. I think I enjoy this more than Jet Set Willy, but this one is also difficult to find the solution and first of all to get a map into your mind, I almost get it in my head. Do not open if you do not want to see the map, but I found one online: https://viva-games.ru/wp-content/uploads/zx-spectrum/games-maps/p/Pyjamarama.gif Furthermore I found some errors, when in the video game room and shooting after you die then the end screen is scrambled, see next post:
  23. Have you ever tried Galaga Wars on Android, very addictive: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.bandainamcoent.galagawars Sent from my VIE-L29 using Tapatalk
  24. And if we run out of ideas, look at YouTube starcade arcade show, there are many (and in some the episodes TI-99/4A was the prize) Example of starcade arcade show https://youtu.be/PefGXowMvDU Sent from my VIE-L29 using Tapatalk
  25. Requires a hardware project as well - for our lazy TI99ers to keep fit ! 1. Dance Revolution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jD7q-_nJNPQ Dance revolution - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4iwwpQ5cAU and the dance mat via the joystick port (as there are 4 options)? 2. Tour de France https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0DiFm6s1Rc Question: how do we couple a bicycle to the TI-99/4a ? 3.

Mario Kart (1 and 2 player version) (Nintendo 64 version) > requires a joystick or game controller with more buttons ?) non-hardware changes: 6. Galaga (all versions) we discussed before 7. Outrun 8.
