  1. I have made some changes to my system. Got pin the right angle micro USB adapters so I can finally use the speech synthesizer. Used Parsec to test it. It works but I suck at the game. Also I had been using an AV2VGA converter and a 17” monitor as an upgrade to the 10 inch monitor I used for testing. I got the pictured TV from eBay it is 15” which seems to be a better match to the computer. Big enough that my old eyes can see things but not so big that it looks really pixelated. I am still trying to test the tape player.
  2. Thanks. I was just reading about the p-code card. Not an attractive option. There are a few “TIPI enabled” programs out there. How were those created?
  3. I bought the manual for fbforth. Just got it Saturday. Is the p-system available and can stand alone programs be created using it? I want to be able to create programs that can be used by anyone with a means to load them. I thought I was doing that with Turbo Pasc 99, but discovered that the program only works when my FG99 has Editor/Assembler loaded.
  4. I plan to move on to FBFORTH, but I did some programing in Pascal Back in the 80s. Figure to get my feet wet with the TI using it and then move on. Don’t plan on writing any major software either.
  5. I don’t get a runtime error. I get a message saying there weren’t any. This is nice when developing, but I wouldn’t want a finished program to display it. There is probably a way to suppress or trap it.
  6. It might also be that I am not as quick to learn new things as I was back in 1982 when I got the VIC20 and 1985 when I bought my C128. LOL
  7. I intend to install ForceCommand once I figure some of this stuff out. I know this all probably seems easy to most of you, but to me coming from a Commodore and PC background, it is very strange. I think I see why the VIC 20 sold better. It really isn’t as powerful, but much easier to use.
  8. Ok, I think I understand that. I will try it and see how well it works. Thanks for the information.
  9. Cool, I will look. I have been reading so much between TIPI, FinalGROM99, FBFORTH, Turbo Pasc’99, etc that I just can’t absorb it all.
  10. I have an idea for a new feature for the TIPIs. I find myself changing the disk mapping depending on what I am trying to do. The auto feature helps a little, but doesn’t always do what I want. So I was wondering if a feature to have multiple config files could be implemented. So I could have say “TP99.cfg” for when running Turbo Pasc’99 , “FB4TH.cfg” for when I am running FBFORTH, etc. So call TIPI, load config, reset and go. What are your thoughts?
  11. It worked! I can even run it with CALL TIPI(“DSK1.TEST1”). Is there a way to suppress the message about runtime errors at the end? I also noticed there are programs named ASSM1 and ASSM2 in the TP3 directory. Can they be used instead of the editor/Assembler cartrigpdge?
  12. Thanks! I have been reading the manual, but it wasn't clear to me what the steps were to go from source code to a working program. I will keep this shorter document handy at least until I have all of this.
  13. I finally got Turbo Pasc99 running. I created a small program to print “Hello World”. It compiles fine so I compiled It to DSK1.TEST. So how do I convert this to a program and run it? I would prefer to create program files that can be used with just TIPI, I think that is an EA5 file? When I load “test” into the editor, I can see what looks like assembly language to me. Do I use the Assembler next?
