  1. love it! sign me up for one! Will this automatically take over responsibilities for sound from the in-console Yamaha sound chip, or is it only engaged for custom sw with explicit call load linkage to SID Master 99?
  2. I'm definitely counting on an 80 column text mode for s/w I used to run on my OPA 9958 upgrade (Funnelweb version of TI Writer, etc). The HDMI output option is super valuable to me also, though in scanning the thread it looks like that has switched to DVI? As far as graphics modes for games, etc, the F18A (original) opened up great doors, hence things like Super Mario port. I assume this new board would open those doors also.
  3. Yie Ar Kung-fu - LOVED that game during my youth - only ever played it in the arcade. Would be awesome to have a TI-99/4a port.
  4. I'd happily send an old cart to house Dragons Lair for TI and pay you for the board, if you have one to spare! I really wanted to get that for the TI, but missed out on the timing.
  5. I remember seeing them in Chicago back in the day...and if I'm not mistaken, I remember seeing some years prior to that in the Detroit Science center/institute as a kid, though more for hands-on that for kiosk usage
  6. That was just the info I was looking for on the .bin files -- thank you! As to why you would send me there if it wouldn't work...technical-SM? Kidding - you've been super helpful since my return to TI! This was more my brain wanting to know if all .bin files were equal (minus size and the GROM specific ones, of course).
  7. The readme noted that the .bin is for Classic99 - will that work on my FinalGROM99? I know FG99 won't run on older FlashRom99, but I'm still not clear on which .bin files run on what...
  8. Will check that out tonight. the readme on that zip shows the .bin as being for Classic99 emulator, but will that automatically work on the FG99 also? On that note...I noticed the other thread said FG99 ones will not run on FlashRom99. Is the reverse also true? .bin files for older FR99 wouldn't work on my FG99?
  9. I do have a FG99 - where can I d/l the bin file? Right now, I only have the .bin's from the WHT ftp file. I'm sure there's lots of other good FG99 compatible .bin files out there including Pitfall...
  10. What ever became of this initiative?
  11. Nice job! Love seeing all the cool stuff in the language I first coded in (besides TI BASIC (non-XB) and Apple IIe BASIC) a lifetime ago! Until I get time to bang out a 10 line XB program, here's my 10 lines of silliness for the day from a quick REST endpoint being used for a latency test. I know...somewhat off topic...but been seeing all the cool 10 line XB things come in when I realized my quick and dirty from work today was roughly the right length. Just the wrong platform and language. @RestController public class SaasicaneRestController { private final String fallbackQuote = "Flatulence is an oft-ignored path to inspiration"; private final Map<String, String> characterQuotes = Map.of("Yoda","Do or do not. There is no try.", "Tony Montana", "Say hello to my little friend!"); @RequestMapping("/moviequote") public MovieQuote findAQuote(@RequestParam(value="characterName", defaultValue="Hurricane") String characterName) { return new MovieQuote(characterName, characterQuotes.getOrDefault(characterName, fallbackQuote)); } } docker run -p 8080:8080 mcmichaelwphat/moviequoteapp curl http://localhost:8080/moviequote?characterName=Tony%20Montana
  12. How do I get my hands on Pitfall?
  13. Welcome! I'm in a similar boat...been 21 years+ since I had to let my original setup go to make room for a nursery. Feels good to be back and excited to see others returning to the TI fold too!
