  1. Many moons ago I purchased a copy of HARDBACK by Tom Freeman. I used it to back up my MFM hard drives with the Myarc HFDC. I do not presently use one of my HFDC's (but may hook up again later) but I always liked the way the program worked. I tried using the program with my WHT SCSI drives but it will not work. I assume the program is looking for something specific on a HFDC? Anybody have any ideas on a hack or whatever so I could maybe use it with a SCSI? conTInuing, -Ralph...
  2. The Portable TI. MICROpendium Vol 6 #5 J Janowski conTInuing, -Ralph...
  3. I have been trying to backup my TI formatted Zip 100 and Syquest EZ135 disks using the backup under Tools in Fred Kaals WONDERFUL TIDIR. It works just fine with one computer that is running Windows XP - At least the ZIP drive does - I do not have a Syquest connected to this machine. My problem is trying to back up using a machine with Windows 98se - This machine DOES have a Syquest drive attached and that's my problem. On launch of the backup prompt I first get: W9xGetDiskInfo failed err=0 Then it will open the box to set up the backup. When the backup is started it will read the disk and then stop stating that sector 640 cannot be read. It does this same error with the Zip or Syquest disk. I attempted to email Fred to ask about it but the email in his doc file doesn't work (at least for me). I am using Fred's latest - 5.5b. Any ideas? conTInuing, -Ralph...
  4. Just dug this disk up out of the pile. Pretty interesting software. Load in E/A option 3 - filename is LOAD. The disk is odd as when a directory is asked all that shows is LOAD. I hope my conversion to .dsk works ok for you all. I don't think the WINDOS is complete though. Hopscotch is pretty fun. The other two programs are interesting too. conTInuing, -Ralph... windos.dsk
  5. I have a myarc 512 in both systems I'm using right now and a converted one for one of my 9640s when I finally get around to setting one up. They are nice because of the RAM disk that can be set up. I use it all the the time for mcopying disk with lots of files. Plus the fact of running xbii.
  6. Boom! Am I ever glad I posted this! conTInuing, Ralph
  7. Glad you like it - I do too. No idea on who authored. Both versions were apparently released by American. The original releases used an XB load file that brought the games into memory via an D/F80 file. I converted to what you see using good old SYSTEX. Like I said, I dig this game. I like the black version the best because of the better graphics... conTInuing, -Ralph...
  8. That's a good idea Ksarul! When I get a free moment I'll hook one of the Multicoms to a PEB with just a disk controller on board and see if they talk to one another.(yeah, right - I keep getting distracted when I dig up another TI treasure, just found my Gramkarte as well.). I bought the Zenoboard direct from Eric Zeno many years ago. Fiddled with it a bit and then stored it with the rest of the hoard. My "hoard" is pretty much the reason I've not taken a picture of my system(s). I have stuff in 3 rooms in my house - accumulated from years of fellow TI'ers baling out to go with a PC or Mac and selling their TI stuff to me. conTInuing, -Ralph...
  9. Came across this today while going thru the box piles. As memory serves me I put it together with the speech synthesizer part. Can't remember if it worked or not. I'm thinking I'd like to put together with the 32k on board. I found my Percom TX99 and It would work out good with a console that has expansion memory on board. I have a Multicom 32k,RS232,PIO sidecar but the TX99 and the Multicom don't seem to like each other. Anybody have any input on the zenoboard? Or.... Anybody have a console with 32k on board for sale?? conTInuing, -Ralph...
  10. Is there a version of ROBOTRON that runs from E/A option 5? I thought I had a version that did just that but can't seem to find it. conTInuing, -Ralph...
  11. As I slowly go thru my thousands of 5 1/4 disks that I have accumulated since the 80's I came across something I wasn't aware of. There are two versions of ENTRAPMENT. Truth be told, this is probably one of my favorite TI games because you can actually beat the bugs. The game gets pretty hard on skills 3 thru 6 as well. I have attached game images and a .dsk file with both versions on board. conTInuing, -Ralph... entrap.dsk
  12. Being a former newsletter editor of the VAST users group I know the labor of love that goes into a newsletter. Bravo!
  13. Funny thing is I used one at work. Keeping track of automotive technicians flag time. Using a software piece programmed by none other than Bill Gaskill. Time track was the name is memory serves.
  14. Geez, You guys are really gonna be ticked at me - I've got 2 Geneves packed away. Been thinking about pulling one out and firing it up though... conTInuing, -Ralph...
  15. Success! Thanks VERY much! conTInuing, -Ralph...
  16. Looks like buddybear found some too... conTInuing, -Ralph...
  17. I tried the link stated above to TIgameshelf and can't seem to get it to work. I'd like to get a copy of those manuals if anyone has another way in. continuing, -Ralph...
  18. Daniel, Sorry my friend, I just found and checked my last box of cart manuals and I do not have Slymoids. continuing, -Ralph...
  19. For female card edge connectors I use the cheap 99 cent store q-tips. They must be the ones with the hollow plastic tube. I squeeze the tip to flatten it out, dip it in alcohol and scrub away until one finally comes out clean. You'd be amazed of the gunk that I've gotten out - especially the cart port. I use a regular good brand q-tip to scrub the male part of the connector with alcohol. Try it, you might like it! continuing, -Ralph...
  20. Hello again, Well, I guess I got you halfway there. I use TI99-PC and it did not want to transfer an empty disk. It complained about this dsk with files on it also - I checked it with TIDIR and it lists the disk correctly. Hope this helps (and works...) conTInuing, -Ralph... files.dsk
  21. I can do that. How many files need to be on the used disk? conTInuing, Ralph...
  22. It plugs into the cartridge port. conTInuing, -Ralph...
