  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. The manual on the last page states that the interface is supplied with power via PIN 18 of the Centronics interface.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. I like this...👍 Thank you for putting together the information and the various flight simulators for our small TI home computer.
  10. Hi Matthew180, please take the time you need for the development of the mk2. I like to wait until the mk2 version is ready. Thank you very much for your effort. Wolfgang
  11. Today I got a TI-74 Basicalc with one additional 8KB card. I am very interested in a cassette interface, a PC interface and maybe a floppy drive and / or SD card reader. Which Hexbus / Dockbus peripherals are there? wolhess
  12. Hi, I am interested on one PHA2037 mini ! I‘m using a PAL console. Wolfgang (wolhess)
  13. Hello Klaus, I'm pretty impressed with what you have for contacts and what interviews you did. Thank you for providing the interviews. Very interesting!
  14. I’m Interested in 1 assembled 8MB and 1 bare board. Thanks!
  15. Hello Jim, I am very interested in a RAMDISK card for my PEB. So thank you for doing that. Wolfgang
  16. I continue to use the printer port of my RS232 card. Sometimes I still use an RS232 interface for connecting to an old laptop. Wolfgang
  17. I would like to see the game Lemmings on the Ti99. I do not know if that's possible, but I've seen a version for the c64. My second wish is a complete version of Sokoban, as there is already a version for the TI with some levels.
  18. Hi Ksarul, please put me on your list for 1 of the PEB extender cards, I have a broken Geneve card, which I will soon try to get back into service. For initial tests and measurements, a PEB extender card is very helpful! Thanks.
  19. Hi Tursi, yes, my temp files are simply overwritten. It works. In my XB program Remind Alarm I simply use existing entries of the current day from the monthly file created by Remind Me. So that I do not destroy the original calendar file by a program interruption of my program I use a copy of the monthly file of Remind Me. If there is an alarm for the day and this was acknowledged, then I mark this in my tempfile. Is everything ok I copy my tempfile to the Remind Me monthly file and thus overwrite the original file. So far so good. So that the Remind Me directory contains no unnecessary files, I delete currently my tempfile with the XB command CLOSE # 1: DELETE. In XB, this works as intended. In the compiled version the tempfiles simply stay. With Isabella6 I can now use DELETE DSK1.Filename. As I said before, for me, no change in classic99 is necessary, since I usually use only my real TI anyway.
  20. Hi Tursi, the request for the function "delete" came from me (see post # 704). Since I work with temporary files, they should be deleted after editing. That did not go so far if I compiled my XB program with XBGDP. I usually practice on my real TI. Therefore the implementation in classic99 is not necessary for me. However, if it is not too much effort for you, I could also use classic99 for testing.
  21. Currently I'm using an Sony KDL-19BX200 TV. This LCD TV has a better picture as my very good 14" Sony CRT TV. And it provide an Yp Pb Pr and HDMI Input. In this picture I use the normal PAL TV converter, but I will make a new direct cable for Yp Pb Pr the German TI version should provide.
  22. Hi Seniorfalcon, many Thanks for your effort. Regarding your question, there is probably a functionality called BOOT Tracking. This is an option in the Funnelweb configuration. And in "The Cyc: Micropendium", 1.7 The Art Of Assembly - Part 7, Page 56 is an article in assembler to identify the drive from which a program was loaded. regards Wolfgang
  23. Hi Ronald, a fine card you have. I'm still waiting for the next F18A/mk2 for two of my TI systems. Attached is a EA5 Program to scan all the CRU adresses in your TI-system. DSRSCAN After loading the program DSRSCAN you see the first used CRU adress and some more informations about the device. with selection 5 you change to the next CRU adress til the last used adress. With the selection 6 you go back to the previous CRU adress. Regards Wolfgang
  24. Hi Greg, I made a EA5 file from Stuarts's browser to use it in my Mega Menu XB program. For this I used the RAG Linker tool and called the browser INT1. INT1_EA5.zip Wolfgang
