working on the Pcard & Geneve Psys. Making progress but one thing I can't find info on is how to look at or modify the SYSTEM.STARTUP. tried Editor but that don't help. and SETUP doesn't seem to address the startup file. any experts? by the way, when I get this all streamlined, documented and working I'm going to post on my project blog series of post on the PCARD and Geneve Psys. It's not that bad and the Psys seems to work OK. oddly,the Geneve Psys seems just a little slower than the PCard in MAME.
I'm putting together a set of .HD files for the Geneve with lots & lots of tested software & docs. One thing I'm doing in those set is TI99 GAMES, about 60+ all ready to go & tested. Here's a partial list of the cartridge games (no order) all working on the Geneve: 4Aflyer, ambulance, frogger, pacman, pole position, driving demon, protector II, adventure (& all disk games), all Infocom (except LGOP), anteater, blasto, burgertime, car-wars, card sharp, chisom trail, donkey kong, henpecked, jungle hunt, micro surgeon, moon mine, munchman 2, othello, parsec, popeye, princess & frog, return to pirate isle, roto raider, schnozola, the attack, ti invaders, tunnels of doom (& disks), tombstone city, topper, video chess, hunt the wumpus, buck rogers, centipede, congo bongo, dig dug, hopper, ms pacman, qbert, milton bradly 4 game+demo cart & the Tomy Tutor games. WHAT I haven't got to work but I have found are: munch mobile, defender, video games 1, star trek & moon patrol. for one reason or another they all blow up on the Geneve (and work on the TI99 COD). And the notable cart games that I haven't that haven't found a Geneve version are: munchman, alpiner, bigfoot, fathom, hen house, hustle, MASH, miner 2049er, moon sweeper, picnic paranoia, rabbit trail, robotron, treasure isle & tutankhan. NOTE: I found that MYGPL can run a lot of the PC99 .GRM files. So if you have the PC99 .grm cart versions they might work. SO if you know how to get the not-working list to work or have one of the games on the not-found list that be great. just add it to this post. I run all the working games using MYGPL or in XB in MYGPL from a batch file. With the action games I usually have to do a F4 in MYGPL to slow to 1 or the games are too fast. Sure would be nice to have a command line switch in MYGPL to do the F4=1 in the batch so would not have to start the batch, shft+shft+ctrl to the MYGPL menu, do a F4=1, then back to the game. Have the same problem with EXEC. it runs the games way too & but it has no way to slow them therefore, not useful for TI99 games.
A bit back I had these MAME/MESS packages posted on ti99resources.wordpress.com/ but decided with the limited space I have on that website to just concentrate on the TI-99/4 and TI-99/4a. So I posted them to an Atariage thread. But since things, over time, tend to get lost in those threads I'm re-posting them here with updates. Notes: The .zip files come with everything you need to get the MAME/MESS emulator up and going except the current MAME/MESS. The emulator has been tested with MAME/MESS .235 and works down to version .225. get MAME here: https://www.mamedev.org/release.html and MESS here: https://messui.1emulation.com/ MESS is just MAME with the top menus put back. I have the ROMS, CFGs and INIs in a MESS directory you will need to copy into your MAME/MESS so that the emulators will work. Be sure to keep the name of the MAME/MESS directory as MESS so that the execution batch file will work. The emulated computers: Tomy Tutor - Cassette and cartridge only. Myarc Geneve 9640 - I have it booting into 2 hard drives. There is a lot more related files in other hard drives in archive. Myarc MyXBII - also boots to a hard drive. P-Card - Boots a boot floppy. Be sure to have the switch for the P-Card turned on in the switches. Only use the disk created to the p-card I have included. others may not work. TI-99/8 - Boots to floppy. Only use the blank SSSD & DSSD disk I have included as others may not work. This is a resource intensive emulator with using the Hexbus; I5 or better. TI-99/2 - Cassette only. Stick with the way I have it set up & don't use the MAME/MESS configurations of the Hexbus & the 32k memory expansion. Both I have had issues with errors on the 99/2. After all, who needs more than 4k anyway. So here you go, have fun. HLO TI99_Geneve.zip TI99_MyXBII.zip TI99 PCard.zip TI99-2.zip TI99-8.zip Tomy Tutor.zip
