  1. Thanks for your answers. P.S. They made Leisure Suit Larry for zx 48: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1344

  3. And "The abbey of crime"? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Abadía_del_Crimen
  4. This article mentions the project of ti99 with the z80 https://books.google.it/books?id=vi4EAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA59&lpg=PA59&dq=death+of+a+computer+nocera&source=bl&ots=M4D684neY6&sig=ACfU3U2ONap5MJbjJ0grG8t0L49_ilhKfQ&hl=it&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj-hsqTrfblAhWQzKQKHYwkCksQ6AEwA3oECAMQAQ#v=onepage&q=death of a computer nocera&f=false
  5. we would like a small editor to change the backgrounds and sprites of rasmus games, quite simple even for those who can only use the basic.
  6. But ti99 has better latency https://danluu.com/input-lag/
  7. in this post ( http://www.mainbyte.com/ti99/history/history.html) the author claims that the sales of the ti99 were good when suddenly "the disaster struck": "It was discovered that under certain circumstances, a person might receive an electrical shock from the computer’s power supply, although no user had yet experienced such a problem. " doesn't it seem like a sort of self-absolution for a series of technical and strategical errors?
  8. In this old post (http://www.vcfed.org/forum/showthread.php?49301-TI990-minis&p=384192#post384192) pnr says that "By the late 70's a major use for the TI990 was running Cobol programs. At that time Cobol (and Fortran) did not have support for recursive procedures: the local storage was not stack allocated, but had fixed memory allocations. In this pattern, each procedure (or 'performed' paragraph) would have its own workspace and be called with a BLWP. According to the article, Cobol code did a context switch every 30 instructions or so. Compare this to e.g. an IBM360 that had to perform a full registers Load/Store Multiple to a procedure save area on each context switch. For 1970's Cobol the "registers in memory workspace" concept was quite defensible." The architecture of ti994a is a derivative of 990?
  9. Wow! But do you think it's possible to convert the great escape (http://www.davespace.co.uk/the.great.escape/) ?
