  1. I have added the contents to the Internet Archive! https://archive.org/details/zappers_202103/Zappers Cover.JPG
  2. I have added the contents to the Internet Archive! https://archive.org/details/ti-games-for-kids/GameskidsCover.JPG
  3. Added to the Internet Archive for posterity 😉! https://archive.org/details/computes-first-book-of-ti-games
  4. I collected and prepared the attached DSK files of all the program listings from the book: First Book of TI Games. (Compute! Book Publications) I found these programs on the Internet Archive (https://archive.org/search.php?query=subject%3A"ti99"&and[]=mediatype%3A"software"&page=1). Great memories! FBTIGAMES1.dsk FBTIGAMES2.dsk
  5. Attached is the Zappers DSK file with all 23 programs. I remember many of those games from my early TI-99 days. I remembered Flip-A-Disk, Qubic, Lander, and Snazzle. ZAPPERS.dsk
  6. I know where to find it. Will post the entire DSK collection later. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Awesome, I found all 23 Zapper programs on the Internet Archive (https://archive.org/search.php?query=source%3A(zappers)) They all include a program listing, I just organize them into a DSK. I'll open a separate thread for each book.
  8. Keep 'em coming. I've just completed the entire First Book of TI Games; I grabbed those programs from the Internet Archive so it was just play testing, and very little debugging. I organized the program files and sent them in DSK format to the TI-99/4A Home Computer Book Archive; hopefully it'll eventually be shared to the community. (http://www.hexbus.com/tibooks/) . I'll be working on Zappers (Henry Mullish and Dov Kruger) and later I'll continue with Games for Your TI-99/4A (Andrew Nelson). Those are two easy pickins.
  9. I debugged, cleaned, and updated all the programs on this thread and saved them as a Zip file collection that I've attached here. Only two of the 37 programs I changed were free of some sort of typo or formatting glitch. I may have missed a few bugs here and there though. Most issues were OCR related, (0 instead of O, l instead of 1, W instead of VV, 8 and 3 and B confusion, and a few others). A few changes were about missing spaces between quotes. I enjoyed fixing them, it was good practice, and now all programs should be hopefully, bug free. I play tested them to the best of my abilities, entering right, wrong answers, crazy answers, just to see all possible results. The games are nice and enjoyable.

  10. I made the following changes: 282 FOR N=1 TO 2 284 L(N)=0 286 NEXT N 860 CALL HCHAR(OLDR(N),OLDC(N),32) 890 IF (R(N)=1)+(R(N)=23)THEN 920 1060 IF (K=89)+(K=121)THEN 1090 1090 CALL CLEAR 1100 GOTO 250 and removed the following lines: 230 L(N)=0 910 IF UP(N)=R(N)THEN 960 950 UP(N)=R(N) The program was not resetting the number of laps after each round. I changed it so 1)it would reset laps won and 2)you would be forced to select the number of laps every time you decide to play again.
  11. Some Corrections: 150 PRINT TAB(8);"PROBLEM";J:: 220 GOTO 180 680 IF K=1 THEN 710 690 N(K)=N(K-1)+N(K-2) 990 N(K)=X^3 1780 N(8)=5
  12. Some Corrections: 150 PRINT " YOU HAVE JUST INHERITED $50,000, BUT YOU CAN'T SPEND ANY OF THE MONEY FOR SIX" 160 PRINT "YEARS. YOUR GOAL IS TO IN- VEST YOUR MONEY TO MAXIMIZE YOUR RETURN OVER A SIX YEAR" 200 PRINT "2. MOONBEAM OIL: THIS IS A MEDIUM SIZE FIRM WHICH DRILLS FOR OIL AND NATURAL" 210 PRINT "GAS.

  13. Corrections: 550 PRINT NAME$(I);"'S STAKE IS $";STAKE(I) 910 COL=11 1010 IF WORTH=11 THEN 1950 1150 VV=DVV 1460 GOTO 400 1520 VV=32 1700 CALL HCHAR(ROW,COL+1,VV) 1890 VV=48 1930 WORTH=15-Y 2330 IF SPLITMODE=1 THEN 1030 2380 COL=COL+3 2560 PRINT "SORRY, THERE MUST BE BETWEEN ONE AND SIX DECKS.

  14. Some corrections: 130 PRINT TAB(8);"CAR DEALER":: 310 PRINT "IF YOU WISH TO ADVERTISE, IT WILL COST YOU $600 FOR EACH MONTH, BUT YOU SHOULD" 780 PRINT TAB(2);"COMPACT CARS";TAB(19);CBUYER 800 PRINT TAB(2);"FULLSIZE CARS";TAB(19);FBUYER 890 PRINT TAB(2);"SPORTS CARS";TAB(19);NS 980 CALL KEY(0,K,STATUS) 1660 PRINT "AN EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE!" 1680 PRINT "YOUR PERFORMANCE WAS GOOD!"
  15. Some corrections: 160 PRINT "TERNS ARE NUMBERED 1 TO 8.
