  1. I am a real newbe concerning floppies, as I am starting only in these days to make real use of my PEB. Experimenting various managers, I became curious about the differences among the versions of the TI Disk Manager. At first sight, it seems to me that they only differ in minor details. The menu structure seems the same, however I see that in DM3 one selects commands by just pressing numbers, while in previous versions it is necessary to press the number + ENTER. The only difference that I spotted between DM1 and 2 is that in the catalog command, after answering all questions (select drive, etc) it is necessary to press PROC'D before the list of files is displayed on the screen. Apart from interface differences, feature-wise I noticed just one difference: DM3 seems to support up to 4 drives (a TI99/8 feature?), the other just 3. Is there more that I have not yet discovered? One more question: was DM3 officially sold by TI before retiring, or it is just a pre-release version that was discovered in the archives? Probaly this has been said many times, but I could not find any info about DM3
  2. Thanks Opry99er and iliketurtles. Was Ant Colony an official release? The catalog scan lists alos Pipes and Crisis Mountain
  3. After seeing St. Nick (this month's competition choice) and Cave Creatures (previous month's choice) I am discovering that Funware did very nice games. Is it possible to have a list of all Funware games, differentiating official releases form prototypes?
  4. Hi all, following your suggestions I have found that the problem it's not only with Flying Shark, but also with other cart, as Don't mess with Texas. It seems that the carts whose name has an '8' just before the ".bin" extension are the problem. I don't know the technical details, but I do know that these are a specific type of carts. In the debugger window, the "Loading file C: ... " line for the carts that don't work is *not* displayed. As if the files are not recognized. The problem is not the console version, I have selected "TI 99/4A" in the System menu
  5. filename is (as in the thread): flying-shark-v1.2.1-8.bin Moreover, filename of the Game Shelf version is: flying-shark-8.bin :-(
  6. Hi, I have tried the first way you describe, as usual. I did exactly what you describe, with the file downloaded from this thread. I also tried with the file taken from the Game Shelf, and get the same behavior: the emulated TI resets, but the title menu has only the TI basic option. I have to say that I use Classic 99 v. QI368 on OS X via wine (I know, it's not a supported way to use Classic 99, but works fine, up to now). Maybe a need a newer version?
  7. Hi friends! I have tried to load the game in Classic99 (as a cartridge). But it does not appear in the title menu. What did I do wrong?
  8. Hi everyone! As Ciro explained, I could not connect to the internet for a couple of days, during which I achieved my best score... Not enough to win, but now that Ferrari is doing well in F1 at least one Italian score had to be registered! :-) And you lnow, Ciro is too busy with useful stuff :-) score4.bmp
  9. Hi, so we are reaching the end of June. Bad month for playing ... My best score so far: score3.bmp But I proudly present the score of a new player, nicknamed D99: scoreD4.bmp Just slightly better than mine, but it's the first time D99 participate in a hi-score compo, and she is 10 years old, so I guess she deserve her score to be published :-) Time to put fresh forces in the TI99 community!
  10. Sigh... I'm sad. Attached, my best score. I don't win, but the reason why I am sad is different. My best score is also my *first* score, I achieved it the 11th of May. After that, I had a f***in' terrible month, and was unable to even open Classic99, let alone switch on my real TI that is waiting, since the 16th of April (my birthday) to be connected, for his first time, with my PEB! :( score1.bmp
  11. Hi, I have MiniWriter I on tape (original), but I don't have the manual. I have a pdf of the MiniWriterII manual. Does anyone know the differences between the two versions?
  12. My condolences to you and your family, Omega. May your dad rest in Peace
  13. Nice choice, I never had the time to try the game, but it was in my to-do list :-) I also would like to congratulate Ciro his excellent scores in HeroX! He uses to say that he sucks as a gamer, but this month's competition shows that it is not true, if he decides to commit he is very good! :-)
