  1. A zip file with TIF images for you to read, ocr, pdf or print of a UK TI99/4a magazine: PARCO Magazine V2 N2 undated but 1986 All the magazine content being posted here is not in the WHT Archve. Thin white paper, two spine staples, odd page size 182mm x 258mm Printed in pale blue ink with variable density across the page. 32 pages. New page size for Volume 2, and this issue announces a new Editor (not named!!). 17 pages of listings. For those of you puzzled by the Parco Story in these magazines, Frankly Poorish is Frances Parrish, owner. Hardly Didmore is Harry Pridmore who went on to run New Day Computing. The others are extras, family and store workers. Contents include: Listings: The Comet by Stephen Barnes (XB); Music Tutor 2 by Phil Donald (XB); Super Solitaire by D Martin (TIB); Basement Bob and the Scary Monsters by S Nash (XB); Missile Duel by T Anderson (XB); Turn the display upside down by Richard Twyning (XB); Calculator by Richard Twyning (XB); Follow This by Paul Templar (XB); Snake Out by Edwin Armstrong (TIB). Articles: TI Writer by Jo Ann Copeland; Hints for Scott Adams adventures by Scott Copeland; Using sound in Assembly by Graham Marshall. Review - and playing hints- Defender module. Coming up in the next few weeks- another two Parco magazines; some catalogs; and then on to some really thick UK TI magazines (starting with a 108 pager...). Parco_v2_n2_1986.zip
  2. The chips are simple logic gates- AND, OR, INVERT etc. Nothing restricted to TI! The board pictured is from a Boomerang 3 looper guitar pedal.... https://www.boomeranglooper.com/ The pcb message can also be seen on the EVE audio boards by Chris Camphuisen in Amsterdam. He made kits to enhance your audio, with an emphasis on sub bass woofers and used that wording on his boards. bb
  3. One magazine as a zip of clean hi res TIF images- read, print, ocr or pdf as you wish. Something of an historical issue as 61 pages were printed on 51 sides- this was the initial experiment with page size reduction - not entirely a success but all future issues were fully page-reduced from A4 to A5. Due to its size this is posted in two parts- here is part 2, pages 27-51 with 35 A4 sides printed on 25 A4 sides...with 25 sides from Stephen Shaw. TIHOME TIDINGS v2 n3 June 1982 Part Two Note that this issue was delayed and not received until 6th August 1982! Contents of these pages: A three page message from TI UK - noting the problems UK users are facing with random tape recorders there is a list of those that work! and a table of TI99/4 Shift keys and the corresponding 99/4A FCTN keys. Confirmation the 99/4 CAN OPEN data files with lower case names- but not save a program with a lower case name (the 99/4A can). Request that TI Home at least lists new programs in the group library (the library was barely mentioned in the very early magazines and then not at all...). 99/4a seen in Boots Manchester (GBP 315.00), not turned on, no modules on sale, joysticks seen. How the TI stores programs in memory- and how to save memory. Converting programs in other machine's Basics; Amendments for Interplanetary Rescue in 99er V1 N4; TI Basic horizontally scrolling message; accepting input in TI Basic without vertical scrolling; Two page advert for prp computergraphics programs; Benchmarks (nb includes Vn 100 XB which was slower); That's another issue. On to the pale blue Parco mags next but first a sheet of paper I found with an extract from the Australian Your Computer, reviewing two books for the TI99/4A- one by Peter Brooks and one by Stephen Shaw. enjoy. bb tihome_tidings_v2_n3_June82_pt2.zip Your Computer May 85 Book Reviews.tif
  4. Glad it all worked out for you in the end. The BAD NAME IN 1380 was due to TI Basic being unable to find the CALL CHARPAT. CHARPAT is added to TI Basic by the Mini Memory module by (ahem...) magical means and if you were running with the FG99 version that might be the culprit. Or you didn't have the Mini Memory module loaded. There are several versions of the FG99 operating system and I don't have them all- Mini Memory was one cause of amendments. A quick check: Select FG99 module mini memory, then from the TI console menu with the Mini Memory options plus 1 for TI Basic, select TI Basic. Type CALL CHARPAT(42,A$) and if you have an error, you don't have access to the extra BASIC sub programs. This will also probably apply to the additional subprograms in the Personal Record Keeping, Statistics and Advertizer modules. Not a problem if you don't intend to use the extensions they add to TI Basic. - If you had instead selected one of the Extended Basic versions for FG99 it would have worked a treat, as the CHARPAT command in XB is not hidden away.... bb
  5. One magazine as a zip of clean hi res TIF images- read, print, ocr or pdf as you wish. Something of an historical issue as 61 pages were printed on 51 sides- this was the initial experiment with page size reduction - not entirely a success but all future issues were fully page-reduced from A4 to A5. Also possibly the first ad for US TI99/4 third party programs to be (legally!) offered in the UK... A4 size, white paper, printed both sides, one staple at top left. Due to its size I will post it in two parts- here is part one of: TIHOME TIDINGS v2 n3 June 1982 Part One Note that this issue was delayed and not received until 6th August 1982! Contents of Part 1 (pages 1-26: 24 of them by Peter Brooks): One page advert for programs by PRP Computergraphics- possibly the first third party TI99/4 US programs to be offered in the UK. From Peter Brooks- a correction to the listing "Symmetrical Plotter" in TIDINGS v2 n1, top right of the page 22.tif in my zip file, posted way above- line 420 should be testing for 49 not 19. a very detailed 11 page description of Peter's progam Designs for Fun (prototype version) with listing (58 lines TI Basic); a chat about Josephson junctions (quite off-topic...). Peter has produced a seven page guide to writing and submitting programs for a disk library- rather detailed and unduly optimistic (flow charts anyone???)- note that Peter had no group library function! Worth a read- you may take it as a worthy effort or parody as you wish... The magazine has more content from page 26 onwards to follow at the weekend.... bb tihome_tidings_v2_n3_June82_pt1.zip
  6. Looking at your code I found two more errors quite quickly- where you have used [CHAR and CHAR (line 1360) and where you have used both [HEX and HEX - line 1460. Check again!!! To quickly get a result, run this Basic program (from Epson) - it should print several lines of thick black like ||||||||| ||||||||| ||||||||| but more solidly black probably with gaps between the lines.! If this works you have proof that the printer graphics is working. 10 OPEN #1:"PIO.CR" 20 FOR I = 1 TO 5 30 PRINT #1:CHR$(27);"K";CHR$(80);CHR$(0); 40 FOR N=1 TO 80 50 PRINT #1:CHR$(255); 60 NEXT N 70 PRINT #1:CHR$(13);CHR$(10) 80 NEXT I 90 PRINT #1:CHR$(27);"@" 100 CLOSE #1 110 STOP Line 90 resets the printer. You reported "CAN'T DO THAT" error- is generated by a RETURN without a GOSUB, which fits the line number- except I would have expected it for line 1620 as you didn't enter the routine with a GOSUB. Your listing should be 1620 STOP. regards bb
  7. Your line 1300 is in error- you have used "PIO", whereas my original code used "PIO.CR.LF" (I actually omitted the stop between CR and LF, sorry... my eyesight is not what is used to be..). The printer interface manual actually says you only need "PIO.CR" and that .CR will turn off the carriage return and line feed but the manuals for many TI graphiucs programs refer to PIO.CR.LF.- The Printers Apprentice says to use either PIO.CR.LF or PIO.CR.... Confusingly the .CR is referred to in the manual as CRLF OFF. By default the interface has CRLF ON. You MUST use PIO.CR.LF (or PIO.CR) for all TI graphics programs, otherwise there will be a line feed after each character. In your coding line 1550 takes care of the line feeds at the appropriate time. That should get things going....
  8. FIRST- The BASIC way- requires TI Basic with Mini Memory OR Extended Basic, plus a suitable printer (eg that uses the Epson printer code ESC K ) NOTE: Using square brackets (that is a [ and ])in a variable name is legal! Insert this code into your program as required- the screen will be printed when you get to this code. You could put it into a GOSUB. The routine reads the screen and prints it- rather slowly. 100 OPEN #1:"PIO.CRLF" 110 REM OR EQUIVALENT RS232 FILE NAME 120 PRINT #1:CHR$(27);"A";CH R$(8) 130 FOR [A=1 TO 32 140 PRINT #1:CHR$(27);"K";CH R$(192);CHR$(0) 150 FOR [B=24 TO 1 STEP -1 160 CALL GCHAR([B,[A,[CHAR) 170 IF [CHAR<33 THEN 300 180 CALL CHARPAT([CHAR,DEF$) 190 IF DEF$="000000000000000 0" THEN 300 200 FOR [SEG=16 TO 2 STEP -2 210 [HEX=ASC(SEG$(DEF$,[SEG,1)) 220 GOSUB 430 230 [PRINTDEF=[HEX 240 [HEX=ASC(SEG$(DEF$,[SEG-1,1)) 250 GOSUB 430 260 [PRINTDEF=[PRINTDEF+[HEX*16 270 PRINT #1:CHR$([PRINTDEF); 280 NEXT [SEG 290 GOTO 340 300 FOR []=1 TO 7 310 PRINT #1:CHR$(0); 320 NEXT [] 330 PRINT #1:CHR$(0) 340 NEXT [B 350 PRINT #1:CHR$(13);CHR$(10) 360 NEXT [A 370 PRINT #1:CHR$(27);"@" 380 PRINT #1:CHR$(7) 390 CLOSE #1 400 REM NOW GO WHERE YOU WISH 410 REM USING RETURN OR GO TO AS APPROPRIATE 420 STOP 430 [HEX=[HEX-48+([HEX>64)*7 440 RETURN 450 END To permit the routine to be added to any program, the square bracket has been used in front of each variable: [. The [ is accepted as a valid character in variable names. ESC K {CHR$(27);"K"} is used in the Epson printer, and some others, to select: 'Normal density 8 pin bit image mode' OR The assembly code way- faster- If you are running a TI Basic program, in order to print the screen you must first leave the TI Basic program and run an assembly language program that will output to a printer with Epson graphics coding. You need to have a "Load Interrupt Switch" fitted, 32k ram and printer plus printer interface. Plus a suitable assembly language program. The switch will cause the computer to jump to an assembly routine while your program is running and not interfere with the display you wish to print. eg Danny Michael's DUMP OR- if the program will run in Extended Basic, a machine code utility plus 32k ram, printer and interface. The utility needs to use a "hot key" that will not interfere with your Basic program, that will jump to the assembly routine to print the screen image OR the utility may permit you to insert a CALL LINK in an appropriate part of the program to print the screen... eg use the disk based utility THE MISSING LINK and in your program at an opportune place insert CALL LINK("DUMP") Yes it can be done (and has been done). Several options but you first need the printer interface and Epson code printer; then you need 32k ram and an assembly program or routine. To load the assembly routine you will probably need to have a disk system too. [Does RXB support screen dumps?? ] There is also a utility that takes a screen image and transfers it to a code you can insert into your TI Writer documents so that TI Writer can print a screen dump with text around it....(can't recall what it was called...)
  9. PART TWO of: PARCO (UK) Magazine v2 n1 undated (1986) as a zip of clean hi res TIF images- read, print, ocr or pdf as you wish: Due to the smaller font size I have scanned this at 600dpi. There is a single page extra, scanned in full colour at the original contrast - I have not amended the scan at all, it really was that low contrast and pale blue. This is page 17 onwards- contents include: Conclusion of listing for "Turn of the Card"; "Loan Calculations" by R King in TI Basic. "Scrolling Utility" by Graham Marshall in Assembly to use CALL LINK in Extended Basic. "Watchit" by Kathryn Finch (11)- a memory game for one player. The start of a series of articles on TI Writer by Jo Ann Copeland. An assembly article by Graham Marshall on The Status Register regards bb (next up will be a TI Home Tidings- an historic copy that first used reduction from A4 to A5 for some sample pages...) parco_v2_n1_1986_pt2.zip
  10. One magazine as a zip of clean hi res TIF images- read, print, ocr or pdf as you wish: PARCO (UK) Magazine v2 n1 undated (1986) New page size: 175mm x 258mm. Two spine staples, 32 pages. Printed with pale blue ink. Due to the smaller font size I have scanned this at 600dpi. (I'll add a colour scan to the second part- I found the low contrast made it very hard to read in the original.). In two parts due to scan size- part 1 contains pages 1 to 16, contents: Extracts from "TI99/4a Information Package" re joystick example, finding memory space available in TI Basic, moving characters with CALL KEY. Module reviews- Protector 2 and Shamus. The Shamus review refers to "other text adventures"- but Shamus is NOT a text adventure. Sound program "CHORDS" by Phil Donald. Games listing "Beat the Robots" by J Milsom. First part of "Turn of the Chord" by Philip Ord - part two in next post. The games don't seem to be in Gamebase and may be "new" to the world. This magazine - as the others posted here- is NOT in the WHT archive, so if you have access please feel free to post it there. parco_v2_n1_1986_pt1.zip
  11. One magazine as a zip of clean hi res TIF images- read, print, ocr or pdf as you wish: PARCO (UK) Magazine v1 n6 undated (1985) A4 white paper, two spine staples, 32 pages. Nicely printed and an easy scan.

More on assembly programming with MiniMem and LBLA from Graham Marshall-this time using sprites; Amending the INPUT beep; suggested improvements to TI Mailing List and Apex "Sorcerors Castle"; Module Reviews: Jawbreaker 2;Othello; Hopper; Book review of the book with a long title by Fred Holtz The next issue of Parco Magazine was in an amended format with smaller pages and a very faded blue ink... so a little more work to do with that, some pages are quite bad. bb parco_v1_n6 1985.zip
  12. One magazine as a zip of clean hi res TIF images- read, print, ocr or pdf as you wish: TIHOME TIdings V2 N2 April 1982 A4 white paper, printed on both sides, single staple at top left. 47 pages. This one has caused me severe problems as many pages had variable ink cover and some were very short of ink, there was almost nothing to scan.... in the end I decided to choose to make the CONTENT available, then if someone wanted a uniform well presented magazine they had the material to work with.... I could not ignore the issue as it is an early fairly historic magazine as part of a long run. Contents include: Group membership (covering all the UK!) now 180. Turning floppies into flippies (note: do not do this, it reduces the disk life greatly as many groups and users have now discovered...) Long article from Peter Brooks- this was the one with little ink, leading in some cases to a choice of a cleaned scan or a retype of the page, and in some cases, only a retype... -split keyboard down key not true 0; implementing a Basic INOR , EXOR, AND; Plotting with 96 x 128 resolution; an initial theoretical description of a 3d printer; book review "Everything you want to know about personal computers"; High resolution plotting routines- including the first from Stephen Shaw "Freeform Art" and "Etch a Sketch", and Triangles; Initial supplies of ExBas v110 starting to arrive; Rambles by Stephen Shaw- creating sounds below 110Hz; 99/4 found in major "dealer"- and in a museum; Review of issue 4 of 99er Magazine; using a program line "IF YES THEN..." and "IF NOT J THEN..."; BOOTS not stocking TI99/4A (TI announced they were); Correction to Computer and Video Games magazine listing of Speed Race (in Gamebase)- written for the 4 it required amendment for the 4A- for convenience scan of C&VG is in the zip together with an amended full listing; Review of tape software from "Workforce" in Luton (any copies still survive??); Cost of buying programs from the USA vs TI's UK prices; Review of Programming Aids 3; More early thoughts on the Personal Record Keeping module effects on TI Basic; Review of Play by Mail game Starlord; Simple Hex to Decimal conversion program (3 liner); How Basic programs are stored in the computer- tokens, memory locations. What happens when you edit one line. Variables in memory. Plenty here I didn't want to omit. The next issue of TIdings was much better printed but next up will be more from the Parco Magazine. tihome tidings v2 n2 Apr82.zip
  13. One magazine as a zip of clean hi res TIF images- read, print, ocr or pdf as you wish: from Peter Brooks, Oxford TI-LINES v1 n14 May 1985. A5 white paper, two staples, 44 pages.

  14. One magazine as a zip of clean hi res TIF images- read, print, ocr or pdf as you wish: from Peter Brooks, Oxford TI-LINES v1 n13 April 1985. A5 white paper, two staples, 60 pages. There were a number of errors which for convenience I have noted on the relevant pages. Contents included: A note that the TI printer port was for the Epson sub-set of Centronics and some printers needed an amendment: Centronics supplied a small circuit fix in this issue using a Fairchild 9602; from Ottawa a five page spread on the data held on a TI disk in Sector 0; from Saskatoon info on the disk File Descriptor Block and the Index in Disk Sector 1 (3 pages); Yet more (7 pages + 2 more pages later) on Enhanced Basic- when the Stats or PRK modules are inserted- this time the CALL G command with a little bit of CALL L and CALL H From Viv Comley, the 99/4A PAL Video output with circuit diagrams , what comes out, and how to use analog RGB with a Microvitec monitor (7 pages); Listing- Doodle by Richard Owen'; Two page advert from Arcade Hardware; List of "useful" CALL LOADs and PEEKs. From Rocky Mountain- how to take a particular style of PEB apart; From Allen Burt more tips on using TI writer (3 pages); From Saskatoon how programs are stored in the computer (6 pages) That should be enough. Next week on to v1 n14 (yes 14 months in the year as the first two issues were free). I have to do a lot of retyping as the print quality is rather poor. Enjoy. bb ti-lines(uk)_v1_n13_Apr85.zip
  15. Sit back again- I still retain my original PAL 99/4 and it is still fully functional, with quite a good keyboard. I came to the TI99/4 as a practiced typist having used a very heavy Underwood office machine and then a smaller lighter Olivetti for some 22 years before my 99/4 purchase, so my fingers knew where to go... by 1982 I had been using an electric typewriter and even an early dedicated AES word processor (Data Superplus with hard sectored floppies). I found the AES keyboard harder to use than the 99/4, the AES was too bulky and unmoveable. The various typewriters I used had the usual QWERTY keyboards but the punctuation (where it existed) did vary enormously so the TI99/4 wasn't a big problem, and I can't say the style of the keys was an issue. My first use of a TI99/4 keyboard (using a machine lent by TI UK before they released the PAL version) went with no problems at all and I rapidly (I had three days!) wrote a home ledger program that was still in use a decade later. Those were the days. The very first computer I ever used -IBM 360 - didn't even have a "visual display unit". bb
  16. TI Gamebase- debugged game... SPEED RACE Perhaps a little late in the day but I see that the first game I had published in a commercial magazine way back in 1982 (sent to the magazine late in 1981, almost 40 years ago!) is in there - and it needs amending to run on a TI99/4a. Yes, published in January 1982 in Issue 3 of "Computing and Video Games" magazine, the game "Speed Race" was written for a TI99/4 with Version 100 of Extended Basic, and the enlarged character sets in the 4A/v110 caused problems with this game. Only a tiny amendment required though- in line 130, amend the end of the CALL CHAR to now read: EBA"&RPT$("0",48)) Did anyone with Gamebase try the game and realise the problem? Something of a rare problem. When the magazine published this program there were maybe three UK owners with Extended Basic. Version 110 did not start to appear - slowly- until a month later. bb SPEEDRACE.txt
  17. Just one larger UK TI magazine today- I expect to post a larger magazine at each weekend now. Here for you to read, pdf, ocr or print is a zip file of hi res TIF images. Today we have: PARCO 99/4A magazine V1 N5 1985 (there was no cover date). A4 size, white paper, two staples. Published by a retailer based in Honiton, Devon. Contents: Using SOUND by Paul Templar- using DATA statements; encoded help with the adventure Return to Pirates Island from Ian Goodall; listings for: Basicball by R A Batts-two player game; Mission to Myclon by Sam Nash; TI Word by Richard Owen (yes a word processor in XB). The two games do not seem to be in the TI Gamebase... Two small graphics demo programs by Graham Farncombe and Stephen Meadows; a Mini-Memory assembly sort routine by M J Lucken with Basic program to use it; reviews of two graphics programs, GRAPHX (MiniMem or EdAs or ExBas all plus 32k) and A-R-T-I-S-T (NB NOT TI-Artist) which just needs the Mini-Mem. Two type in graphic programs- Monkey Graphics by M Rout and Painting by J M Aminian. Reviews of Dig Dug module, Congo Bongo module, disk labels Data Wipers, and the book "Getting Started" by Stephen Shaw. Phew. That's a lot of content. parco magazine_v1_n5_1985.zip
  18. Two zip files today each containing clean hi res scan tif images of TI99/4a user group magazines for you to read, print, OCR or PDF. They are not in the wht archive so if someone would like to add them there.... TI-LINES (UK) v1 n12 Mar 1985: from Peter Brooks in Oxford, UK. A rather thin magazine and thin content this time, but it keeps the run complete. Not a good quality print as the photocopier Peter used had been "maintained" just before (badly). 20 pages of the thoughts of Peter (mostly TI related!), which explains some of the problems that he faced. A gentle reminder that Peter repeated rumours of rumours as factual - some of what he wrote in terms of news is not to be taken too seriously. The technical side is usually most informative. Central Ohio Ninety-Niners (CONNI) Spirit of 99 v5 n9 Sep 1987. 20 A4 pages, contents include: Short review of Centipede module; For Gram Kracker owners, a 5 page article on editing TI Basic to add CALL XB and Extended Basic to add CALL BC.

  22. A UK magazine for you to read, ocr, print, PDF and add to the whtech archive... due to its size posted in two parts - here is part two: PARCO MAGAZINE V1 N4 (part two) The listings for the programs: "Statistical Graphics" (continued from part one) by Sam Nash (TIB); "Telephone Timer" by Clive Tucker (XB); Sonar by Alan Jones (XB+JS); "Treasures of Xerox" by Christopher Rock (TIB). An article on the use of a TI99/4a in UK Maritime Rescue; an introduction to assembly- an assembly CALL CLEAR; reviews of Tunnels of Doom module; Oldies but Goodies Games 1 cassette; Basic: Using DEF; Book Review: Programming Basic with the TI Home Computer.

  23. A UK magazine for you to read, ocr, print, PDF and add to the whtech archive... due to its size posted in two parts - here is part one: PARCO MAGAZINE V1 N4 (part one) - no date on the publication but it would have been April or May 1985. A4 in size, two spine staples, all white paper. These first 16 pages include: A "Music Control Program" by Malcolm Birkett in Extended Basic which allows music to be entered as DATA statements; Note on joysticks and alpha lock; an Adventure Help article with brief tips for Return to Pirates Island, Ghost Town, Pyramid of Doom, documentation for Spontaneous Reaction -listing in last issue. The docs have been posted above. Listings- note that instructions appear in their own section before all the listings. So in this part one we have instructions for "Statistical Graphics" by Sam Nash (TIB); "Telephone Timer" by Clive Tucker (XB); Sonar by Alan Jones (XB+JS); "Treasures of Xerox" by Christopher Rock (TIB).
