  1. Hi again, Mega Menu Workshop #2: How to change some texts in the Mega Menu program? For everyone who wants to change a text in the Mega Menu Program, I have created a small guide. You can also translate all texts into another language. If somebody does that, please send me the file and I will add it to the Mega Menu program package. WS-MM-02_Mega Menu edit language file.pdf Have fun changing!
  2. Hi again, Mega Menu Workshop #1: How to compile the Mega Menu program? For those who want to make their own changes in the mega menu program, I have prepared a small guide here to compile the program with Harry Wilhelm's XB compiler (included in his Extended Basic Game Development Package XBGDP). WS-MM-01_Mega Menu compiling instructions.pdf Have fun trying!
  3. Hello, MEGA MENU v2.48 – New version: Feb / 27 / 2020 In the last day’s I got some feedback from Tim (twoodland) to correct some texts in the Menga Menu program and here is the new version. New in version 2.48 This version is only a maintenance release with the following fixes: - Correction in the title screen: "TI-99 / 4a Home Computer", in v2.47 "Homecomputer" was displayed. - Correction in the English language file "MM-ENG": In line 8 = variable T007$ new "loading menu-data", in v2.47 "loading menue-data" was displayed. In line 32 = variable T211$ new "menu-text", in v2.47 "menu-texts" was displayed in the menu config screen. Many thanks to Tim (atariage user: twoodland) for giving me this suggestions! - Fixes in the Mega Menu program loader (file: MML) If a menu selection was called up with a submenu and the setup program was called up with CTRL+T in the submenu, an "Bad Value" error occurred in line 1040 (fixed in MML v2.48). MegaMenu-248.pdf the new manual MM248.zip the complete package MM248_DISKS.zip the complete package in v9t9 disk images MM248_UPDATE.zip only the five updated files Update Mega Menu from version 2.47 to 2.48 If you want to update your existing Mega Menu system from the version 2.47 to the version 2.48 you can easy unzip the file MM248_update.ZIP in your TIPI folder TIPI.MM. This change five files in the Mega Menu root path: TIPI.MM.MM TIPI.MM.MM-X TIPI.MM.MM-Y TIPI.MM.MM-ENG TIPI.MM.MM-MML That’s it, enjoy the new version!
  4. Hi, I tried to assemble the program and got a syntax error at line 2201. There are some additional characters at the end of the file CALC6. I removed the last line in this file and successfully assembled the program. The program is designed to run from a module. Is there an easy way to change the program to start from a floppy disk? There is an AORG> 7FFC instruction in the CALC0 file. I left it out as a test, but that alone does not result in an executable program. Thank you for sharing these sources. I am currently learning the basics of the TI assembler and I can learn a lot more from the source files and the comments than from the examples in the book "Introduction to Assembly Language" by Ralph Molesworth.
  5. Hi Ksarul, I,m interested in such a Board if they have 8MB and the RAMBO feature.
  6. Hi Sparkdrummer, thank you for the February issue of Yesterday News. It is very informative! Both the tips from the Tigercub and the articles on the disk tools. I will definitely take a closer look at Disk & Aid.
  7. Hi there, I answered yes to the poll. My second console has a tipi sidecar, which I would use for a BBS system. I would not let my two PEB systems run 7/24 hours. Regards, Wolfgang
  8. Hi Senior_Falcon, yes, it works on my real TI with changing it to _C. Thank you! Thank you too to arcadeshopper for testing it
  9. Hello Senior_Falcon, Your XB + is great, I especially like the line editing functions, the font and the selection of the XB256, TML and T40 extensions are great! In Classic99 I can start XB+ and it works. On my TI99/4A systems I can select the XB+ with FG99, then a blue screen appears and nothing else happens. After a reset and ENTER I see the selection 1 - 6. Unfortunately, 2 only leads to the blue screen again. At 3 the screen changes to gray, At 4 and 5 I see a light green screen And at 5 I see the light yellow screen. But nothing else happens! Even if I press a key to bypass LOAD, the blank screens remain. I tested this on three different systems with two different FG99 modules and it always gives the same result. Have I overlooked something to make XB+ work on real hardware? Another note: The XB+ shows version 110. XB2.7 shows version 210. It would be nice if XB+ shows a new version, for example 220, 230 or 310 Wolfgang
  10. Thank You Sir! I found a failure in the MEGA MENU v2.47 TIPI package. My LOAD program for the music selection doesn't use the right path for DSK1. please change the LOAD file in the folder TIPI.MM.P.MUSIK to the correct LOAD program: LOAD On Monday I got my second TIPI card from arcadeshopper, so I could check on a real second TI. For testing it is easy to use the classic 99 version (see post #12), if you want to test on a real TI here is the complete package for Download with the correct LOAD file for playing music: MM247A.zip
  11. If anybody will use the Mega Menu v2.47 in classic99 here is the package configured for classic99: MM247C99.zip The zip file contains three folders for DSK1, DSK2 and DSK3 Please configure the classic 99 disks as follows: DSK1 --> MM_C99_DSK1 DSK2 --> MM_C99_DSK2 DSK3 --> MM_C99_DSK3 Use Disk Type "Files (FIAD)" and "allow more than 127 files"! If you select XB or RXB the program will autoload the MEGA MENU program and you can try the DEMO programs. You can also use the REMIND ME calendar program to test the alarming function.
  12. The manual on the last page states that the interface is supplied with power via PIN 18 of the Centronics interface.
  13. I'm still waiting for the F18a mk2 version. Currently I am thinking of a 40 character version that I can compile with XB256. This will be my challenge next year. As soon as I get an mk2 extension I also want to try an 80 character version.
  14. Hello, MEGA MENU v2.47 - New version: Dec/12/2019 Today I present my new version of the MEGA MENU program. New in version 2.47 - Additional support for alarming. Remind Alarm is a new function of the MEGA MENU program. This function complements the calendar program REMIND ME (by John A. Johnson). - New and fast HELP-Screens for the MEGA MENU program and the Remind Alarm function. - Some changes for better reliability, e.g. Error Handling - Extension of the setup program for the configuration of Remind Alarm. - Mega Menu now works in classic99. However, only DSK1, DSK2 and DSK3 are supported. The alarm function in the MEGA MENU program How do I use this new feature? Use your Remind Me program for your appointments. Make an entry with the time you want to be notified and enter a short comment. Save your entries before quitting the program! If you then work with the MEGA MENU program, the program waits for your selection and works as usual. Approximately three minutes after you start the MEGA MENU program, the program will search your Remind Me program calendar file. If an entry exists, it will be signaled in a calendar icon on the menu screen. With CTRL + E you can view the calendar entries. If the program in the Remind Me file of the current month finds a left-aligned time entry at the position of the current day and the time is almost reached or the time is in the past, the program screen changes to the alarm screen and displays the time and comment, you entered in the program Remind Me. The alarm screen plays a small sequence of sounds until you press the ENTER key and confirm the alarm. If an alarm has been acknowledged, Mega Menu marks this in the Remind Me file with a "-" after the time entry. If the program Mega Menu is restarted, there will be no new alarm for this entry. With CTRL + E you can show the marker in the Mega Menu or you can look in the program Remind Me. Attached is the complete MM package with the program files and the DEMO programs. For installation, all files are simply unpacked into the TIPI directory. "TIPI.MM" contains the Mega Menu programs "TIPI.MM.P" contains the DEMO program folder and programs MM247.zip Here is the new manual: MegaMenu-247.pdf Have fun with the new Mega Menu Program and Happy Alarming!
  15. I like this...👍 Thank you for putting together the information and the various flight simulators for our small TI home computer.
