  1. Thanks! My boys moved the task bar over last week and I was seeing something similar- I didn’t connect the two until you said that.
  2. I have a Craig LCD that was in my parents camper when I bought it from them. It accepts composite input and displays beautifully with upscaling or HDMI conversions. The letters show up crisply and the colors come through like they are supposed to. The text based games look amazing on it compared to my previous video solutions.
  3. Thanks! Unfortunately, when the program runs from minimem or minimem+ it is just gibberish flowing on the screen. Believe it or not that is progress. If I run from XB (there is a LOAD file in the disk image), the program starts but says a Supercart is required and to start from E/A option 5 with filename DSK1.LEATHGODDS. There is no option 5 in minimem, so I used load and run. I also tried run. Sorry Weird, i didn't see your second reply before posting. That explains my result. Thanks for your efforts!
  4. I guess I don't know what I'm looking for in the FG. I've got the latest image loaded from whtech. I've looked through the dev folder and I don't see a Supercart choice on either page. Ditto in the tools folder. What should I be looking for?
  5. Is it possible to play Leather Goddesses from a nanoPEB and a Finalgrom? I was hoping the Finalgrom would take the place of the supercart.
  6. Help! I am trying to copy a DSK image that I downloaded from WHtech. I am using TIdir. When I copy the file from the hard drive to the CF, I choose a volume number and hit copy. The progress bar progresses but when it is done the volume label is blank and there is nothing showing in that volume. What am I doing wrong? I got one volume done after several tries (I don't know what was different about that effort), but no joy since.
  7. That looks amazing- I really need to make it to the event sometime. Thanks for the info! I was hoping Fabrice would have his Ti (ny) done, then there is this or stay totally retro-original with the PEB- so many options!
  8. Looks like I'll have to invest in a SAMS card😆... and a PEB. Too bad for me there's not a SAMS version of the nanoPEB. Really amazing looking!
  9. My prayers are with your family. My mother had the same surgery 2 years ago to correct NPH and it was a miracle for her.
  10. Welcome! I would say that that there is a lot of utility in getting a Final Grom. It greatly reduces wear and tear on the cartridge port and gives access to lots of great programs easily. Just make sure you don't have a QI version of the console.
  11. Now that we have the answer, what was the question? I'll have to go back and read the books I guess.(bad Douglas Adams reference) I am really looking forward to the Forti-2.
  12. I don't want you to lose focus on Tilda, but I agree Metroid would be amazing! I'd like to see TImpest also.
  13. Onlyoffice is free and reads office files as native format. It has done a good job for me when I brought in word files from work.
  14. At whtech there is a press.dsk under word processors. Is this the Press you are referring to? There is a manual as well that really makes the software sound great. I think maybe RXB said he has the source?? Edit:beta, not source.
  15. Wow! This is beyond what anyone could have reasonably expected. I mean RXB has been dreaming of something like this, but I can't imagine that anyone thought it would happen. I am really excited!
  16. http://ftp.whtech.com/Cassettes/ There are some wav files in the mini mem directory at whtech. I don't know if they would work or not.
  17. Turboforth works from the FinalGrom which is the successor to the Flashrom. I don't have a Flashrom, so I can't help you out there. If it's possible, the regulars here will be very quick to respond! I'm pretty sure you need the 32k expansion as well.
  18. The flashrom github page will answer your questions i think. Some ROM files do require a 32k expansion. The fg files refer to the FinalGROM cartridge from the same person who developed the FlashROM. https://endlos99.github.io/flashrom99/
  19. Probably won't be able to go, but I sent payment to help out. I figure this event will be documented, so I'll benefit if I get there or not.
  20. I have 5 silver and two beige consoles. Right now, my favorites are the silver ones, mainly because the FinalGROM works with them.
  21. I recently picked up five 4a's on Ebay that had issues. Two were key board issues that were easily fixed. They were missing keys. One was fixed by taking a key from the other keyboard that was missing keys. The second one was fixed by replacing the keyboard from one of the non-functioning keyboards. I also had to replace the internal power supply in that one. One was listed as having a bad cartridge port. Cleaning the port was all that was needed. One of the other ones had a bad internal power supply. Replacement fixed that one. The two bad power supplies had different voltage readings. The first read -5v, 12v, gnd, +3.6v. The second read -5v, 12v, gnd, +11v. I also had a problem with the 32k sidecar working on 3 of the consoles but not on one. That ended up being operator error on my part. There is a switch on the sidecar that switches between the ti for power and an external power supply. I had it set to external but had no power supply going to it. Apparently there is enough voltage leakage to somehow power the sidecar regardless of switch position sometimes even through the speech synth. I am still working on fixing the last one from that lot but I ended up better than I had hoped to when I bought them. Hope this helps!
