  1. Just answered my own question .. it is a modem. https://www.ebay.com/itm/113710354394?ul_ref=http%253A%252F%252Frover.ebay.com%252Frover%252F1%252F711-53200-19255-0%252F1%253Ficep_ff3%253D2%2526pub%253D5574735181%2526toolid%253D10001%2526campid%253D5336086427%2526icep_item%253D113710354394%2526ipn%253Dpsmain%2526icep_vectorid%253D229466%2526kwid%253D902099%2526mtid%253D824%2526kw%253Dlg%2526srcrot%253D711-53200-19255-0%2526rvr_id%253D1984237308970%2526rvr_ts%253Df028cf8d16a0ab4c9380ac96fffef8c3&ul_noapp=true
  2. Not sure what this thing is, or if it is actually for a ti: Signalman Anchor Automation Mark III https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Signalman-Anchor-Automation-Mark-III-T-I-300-232-25M-for-TI99-4A-New-/273862275235?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276
  3. I actually prefer the pain sticks for a lot of ti games. They have a nice short throw and are a decent size in my hand. But you cant go wrong with a Suncom Tac2 or a Competition Pro, which are my go-to joysticks. I have several Wico sticks, and while the leaf switches are nice I find the throw too long so dont use them much. The Suncom Starfighter is also nice. It is smaller than the Tac2, but has pretty similar performance and you can pick one up much cheaper. One of these days I have to get around to making a real arcade stick setup for my ti, as that would by far be better than any of the commercial options.

  5. Awesome! Im just getting into the speccy myself, and it is a fun machine. I picked up a grey 128 +2 which just uses a 9v wall wart for power. A little-known secret for other North Americans who are interested in trying it out but are intimidated by the PAL only video . . . a lot of lcd monitors and teevees do both NTSC and PAL and switch automatically. Just plug and play!
  6. Yeah, I was seriously tempted but shipping to Canada was nuts and Ive spent too much on this hobby lately to justify a collectors item.
  7. ti-99/4, no a, buy it now for $75 https://www.ebay.ca/itm/vintage-texas-instruments-ti-99-4-home-computer/123661334361
  8. The switches go to the fuse, so it turns the power on and off for each socket.
  9. This thing was up on eBay briefly today... Game Machine Expansion Module by Parsec Research for Texas Instruments TI-99/4A https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Game-Machine-Expansion-Module-by-Parsec-Research-for-Texas-Instruments-TI-99-4A/264197017276 Anyone have a clue what it is? I thought it might be a cartridge port expander, but it has a bunch of chips and a large looking fuse.
  10. Looking forward to this! Message sent!
  11. Huh. Someone has but up disassembled source code for Alley Cat on github. One of these days Im going to have to teach myself programming and figure out how to port the thing https://github.com/gabonator/Work-in-progress/tree/master/DosGames/AlleyCat
  12. I bought one of the cartridges. It is a fantastic game! I am always happy to support the hard work people put into creating great games like this. Thank-you!
  13. This is an awesome game! Thanks!
  14. I just downloaded and tried it out the other day, and you are right, they did an excellent job on that game. It is surprisingly well done and fun.
