  1. I've find this thread interesting as I like to see great projects like this run natively in Linux. As Tursi (and Greg) has mentioned, Classic99 was developed specifically for use with Windows and it doesn't use the necessary platform independent libraries that allow for an easy port. That being said, sometimes Windows projects like this can be successfully compiled using the Mono development environment: https://www.mono-project.com/ While it doesn't create a completely native Linux port, it gets it a bit closer. Even if it did work, it's important to note that even this may not be ideal for a lower performance Raspberry Pi as compared to an actual PC. Oh and let me be clear that I'm not trying to add more work on Tursi's plate.
  2. Big shoutout to GDMike who helped get SUPERNOTES running on my TI. It looks like I needed a bit of help with the Editor/Assembler steps. Great progress so far -- looking forward to more. Thank you!
  3. I appreciate you looking into this and great to hear an existing image can actually be used. I will be trying this myself soon. Thank you!
  4. Hi Greg, It's amazing how well things work when files are named correctly. Thank you again for all your help on this. I'm now online with thekeep.net using my ESP8266 WiFi adapter with a NULL modem adapter.
  5. OK, got a bit further. Realizing the the LOAD program is a BASIC program. I discovered this when booting with Extended Basic Plus and it auto loaded and ran it. I now get the TERM80 initial text menu, where option 1 should load the main program. I get an ERROR in LINE 191 where it tried to CALL LOAD ("XBLOAD/O"). It looks like the file is saved as [email protected] on the file system so perhaps it's not finding it? I did use TI99Dir to extract files from the original TERM80.DSK image. Perhaps it's extracted the name incorrectly for that file? Still not sure if there's a proper way to do this using the TIPI. I know programs need to be in TIFILES compatible format. I did use TI99Dir to convert all PROGRAM files to TIFILES format before copying to the TIPI. In any case, I would still appreciate some assistance for anyone who's using TERM80 on a TIPI. Thanks!
  6. I am having issues getting TERM80 to load/run correctly. I am using a TIPI in a PEB and have the TERM80 folder mounted as DSK1. I do not have an F18A adapter. Stock (composite) video. I am using the utility Force Command and do a 'load LOAD' (as it looks like LOAD is the loader program on the disk needed to start TERM80). Initially, all I saw was this: ... then pressed a key (can't recall which one) and saw this: I could hit keys and the screen would update, but could not make heads or tails of anything. Rebooting the TI and reloading TERM80 (using the same method) got me back to the blank screen. From there, I hit some keys again and got this: At this point, I guess I have no idea what I'm doing. Can anyone provide any assistance? Thank you!
  7. Hello, I have an 800XL with a U1MB and use it with an AVGCart via SIDE2 emulation and it works great. I'd like to replicate this for use in Altirra. Is it possible to just dump an image of the SD card and use that for Altirra? I know Altirra has SIDE2 support, but not sure about using an existing SD card image with it. Thanks for any help that can be provided!
  8. It works, but comes up as 52.400 baud. Performance is a bit down from the 57,600 (which would be expected). The good thing is RespeQt is adjusting the baud rate now.
  9. I did test with my 800X and it seemed to stay at 19,200. Performance results when using RWTEST confirmed it. For whatever reason, I saw the speed jump to 57,600 (in the status bar) after a reboot of my laptop and the RWTEST results were much higher. Can't explain what changed. I am using DSR handshaking and 3X speed setting (not the POKEY divisor setting). BTW, thank you for the quick response.
  10. Hello, I'm trying to set the baud rate from 19,200 to 57,600 on a self-compiled version of RespeQt 4.3 (ebiguy fork) from git. No errors during the compile and everything appears to be working except for the fact the baud rate stays set at 19,200 no matter what changes I make in the configuration/settings. Manually setting the COM port baud rate (prior to running RespeQt) doesn't resolve the issue. I'm running Linux Mint 19.3 (64bit). The connection from my workstation to my 800XL is via a USB port (/dev/ttyUSB0) with a SIO2USB adapter. Thanks!
  11. Hi Greg -- thanks for that heads up. If you didn't mention it, I would have thought something was hung. Upgrade worked perfectly. Thanks, Matt!
  12. So incredibly impressive. Would love to see one for NTSC...
  13. Not yet -- there is quite a bit to process so I'm doing it in between other projects. Hope to have something as soon as I can. Thanks!
  14. Hi Ksarul, Is there any version of this program that will run from a cartridge (FinalGROM99, perhaps)? I only have access to real floppies in my PEB at the moment and I'm using a standard TI FDC, so your test DSK image is too large for me to use. Thanks!
