  1. Exactly, no underdumps or overdumps. Just perfect redumps.
  2. The relationship between No-Intro.org and ClrMamePro is that the No-Intro DAT files are created and maintained for each platform. ClrMamePro was simply the best tool to use this DAT to compare against the romset. It is such a versatile and powerful tool for preservation.
  3. Ksarul, you are exactly right. The No-Intro team is all about standardization and preservation. They want everything redumped and verified so we can accurately preserve this platform.
  4. The lack of a standard could be a problem. For similar systems on No-Intro I have seen the .bin format used. The previous files I have found here are all in .bin format. But you are probably more versed in what is the best format possible so the MESS RPK in ZIP may be best. But........I'm open to the advice of the masters here! On the matter of unverified. The No-Intro team has a set of standard tools & devices used to extract roms and place them into romsets. This allows "Joe Blow" to pickup hardware and the cartridge and then receive the same hashes as someone on the other side of the world with the same cartridge version. It's repeatable and accurate. Hopefully someone can chime in here about how best to extract the information on each cartridge for preservation.
  5. What is the best way to extract the GROM cartridges? Is there a device I could purchase or make for this? If I could find such a device, I could then verify against images I find to confirm. Then we may be able to submit to No-Intro. Thank you for your help!
  6. The problem with the current roms I see for the TI-99/4A is that they are all unverified and are not consistent. The No-Intro team will not accept these previous dumps. There should also be one standardized file format used in their preservation. -Steve
  7. Hi All, I am interested in putting together a No-Intro.org romset for the TI-99/4A. To do this, I need to redump all of the cartridges in a raw format such as .bin. Since a lot of the files on the internet cannot be verified I wanted to reach out to everyone here to see if there was any interest in helping me make this happen. Here is what I have: 1. EEPROM Reader 2. TI-99/4A Computer 3. Approximately 75 cartridges What do I need? 1. I need advice on how to most accurately redump these cartridges into .bin format 2. People to verify my redumps by posting their .bin files so we can compare 3. Volunteers to help bring this collection together for preservation 4. List of all known and released cartridges: no hacks / no custom / no homebrew. What is No-Intro.org? http://no-intro.org/ No-Intro.org TI-99/4A Discussion Thread: http://forums.no-intro.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2789 Please reply to this thread or No-Intro if interested, Steve
