  1. We could make them white as well, and I have been considering doing a run of them. Unfortunately, I've never seen beige as an option from any PCB manufacturer. As far as rubber feet, I recommend plugging the joysticks into the board, then into the TI. The port actually holds onto the board fairly well. Thanks! -Kevin
  2. Hello Everyone! My name is Kevin Williams, owner of TexElec.com. My wife and I opened our store about 3 months ago and have been adding products as we can. I wanted to highlight one of our most popular products at the suggestion of one of my customers. That is our TI-99/4a Joystick Adapter! What is it? It's small circuit board which will plug into the side of your TI and allow you to use your favorite Atari 2600 style Joystick. It has two ports for two player games. No longer do you have to deal with the horrible TI joysticks! I think I have at least 5 pair of the old TI joysticks sitting around, and not one of them works completely. Initially, I built this for our use but realized that it would be great for anyone to use. In three months we've sold at least 50 of them, and I wanted to get the word out! https://texelec.com/product/ti-994a-to-atari-2600-joystick-adapter/ We also sell them on eBay, but they are cheaper on our site since we don't have to pay eBay fees! Please take a look! In addition we have licensed several boards from James Pearce of Lo-Tech.co.uk. We now manufacture the popular Lo-Tech Compact Flash Adapter, the Lo-Tech 1MB RAM board for XT's, the Lo-Tech 2MB EMS Board, the Lo-Tech ISA ROM Board, as well as the Lo-Tech MIF-IPC board! We are also building our own projects and have PCBs on order now for a board I'm sure will draw some interest! Stay tuned. We just released our second original board last evening, the 8-bit ISA Prototype Card. It used to help DIY'ers easily build and test their own I/O port device. It has uses a 74HCT688 to decode whatever port you like, and a 74HCT245 bus transceiver. It has many more features, so if this sounds like something you would be interested in, take a look here for a much better description of the board's features: https://texelec.com/product/8-bit-isa-prototype-card-v1-0-pcb/ I've been a long-time lurker on the AtariAge Forums and find it to be one of the best sources for information covering the whole gaming sphere! Thanks to everyone for making this a great place to be, and thanks for all of the support we have had so far from our customers. We hope to be a great source for Vintage PC DIY and more as we expand! Thanks! -Kevin Williams
