  4. I recently purchased a Retroflag GPi Case (http://retroflag.com/GPi-CASE.html). It's a GameBoy-like case for the Raspberry Pi Zero, with a 2.8 inch IPS screen. The Pi is placed in a cart that you connect to the case similarly to a console's cart. With RetroPie on the Pi you can create a portable retro-gaming machine. The GPi is good product in general, the buttons and the D-pad are responsive and the screen looks fine, no tearing or lags. I have installed/configured with RetroPie all these systems (that runs fine on the Pi 0): Atari 2600, 7800, Genesis/Megadrive, Master System, NES, PC Engine, Vectrex, SG 1000, Game & Watch, Game Gear, Game Boy, Lynx, Famicom Disk System, Coleco, Intellivision, lr-MAME 2000, VideoPac/Odyssey 2, ZX Spectrum, MSX/MSX2, C64 and of course the TI99/4A! The GPi Case has a D-Pad and 8 buttons: A, B, X, Y, Start, Select and RB, LB on the back of the case. These are enough for all the consoles. With Colecovision, Intellivision, Spectrum and C64 it's possible to have virtual keyboards/keypad overlays so you can start all the games without having to hook up a Bluetooth keyboard. Really comfortable! Guess what? Only the TI 99 emulator needs a keyboard to start the games! 😞 The only emulator that can run on the Pi Zero is TI-99/Sim created by Marc Rousseau (https://www.mrousseau.org/programs/ti99sim/). It's a nice emulator, with good compatibility and speech support. It's not at MAME's level, but it's enough to play most games in this TI99 handheld. Unfortunately, the joystick config is hardcode and doesn't fit well with RetroPie/EmulationStation ecosystem. You need a keyboard to pass from TI99 initial screen to the game and play with the joypad. Moreover, the GPi Case is configured by default with the D-pad in Hat mode and the emulator is only using Axes mode. It's possible to change mode pressing Star+Up for 5 second, but then you need to reconfigure EmulationStation for using the menu. Looking at TI-99/Sim I've seen a new 0.16.0 version (released after last RetroPie distribution) and in the changelog there is a comforting note: "Changes to better support RetroPie setup & joystick usage", but no additional infos in the docs. I've contacted Marc asking for additional information. He explained that has ported the code to SDL2.0 and managed to get the keyboard emulation working properly. Basically, the joypad buttons can also simulate the pression of keys 1 to 9, so allowing to pass from title/option screen to the game. That sounds good, so I've compiled and tested this new version. It's now possible to move to the game screen, hovewer when testing Parsec I realized that it does not allows to change the speed for the refuel section. All the buttons acts as Fire button! 😞 Moreover, I cannot play Donkey Kong (it asks for Enter key...) and other Atarisoft games. The same for Alpiner, Big Foot, etc. Finally, to select a new game it's necessary to exit from the emulator pressing ESC on keyboard. I need also to press FCTN-REDO at game over to play again... Since I do not want to use a keyboard nor uninstall the emulator, I decided to have a look at the source code to "patch" it. I've added the Hat support and now it's possible to play most of the games without a keyboard. 🙂 Most of the joypads have at least 8 buttons, so a minimal set of needed keys/combination of keys needs to be identified to run confortably most of the games. The ideal number of keys to have would be: 0 to 9, Enter, Space, +, FCTN+QUIT, FCTN+REDO, FCTN+BACK, FCTN+AID. Total is 17, plus the "Fire" button and "ESC" to exit from the emulator, for a total of 19 keys. This number must be reduced, since normally there are less button available. For example, the Xbox One controller has 10 buttons + 2 triggers, the 8bitdo SF30 has 12 buttons + 2 triggers. For my Retroflag's GPi Case 8 buttons layout, the selected keys are: Fire, 1, 2, 3, ESC, FCTN+QUIT, FCTN+REDO and Enter. With a joypad with 2 additional buttons it's possible to have also "+" and FCTN+REDO. Finally, with a 12 buttons joypad , it's possible to have also Space and 0. Summer is approaching and I know that there are guys here that needs to play some Parsec and MunchMan under beach umbrella, so in attachment the "patched" executable and the .cpp source if someone want to improve/made its customisation. Also a couple of images and videos (not edited, just raw recording, sorry for the poor production...). If you need .ctg games tested and ready to run, just check at the end of the article on the TI99 emulation with Raspberry on TI99IUC site (http://www.ti99iuc.it/web/index.php?pageid=homepage&artid=203#.XuZAoG5uKUk). Try this TI99 handheld, it's really fun! 🙂 DKong.mp4 Parsec.mp4 Menu.mp4 ti99sim-0.16.0-Joypad_Patch.zip
  5. Hi everyone, I am trying to convert some 8000khz wav files to glorious TI99 speech, and I've been following this turtorial: I'm running windows XP professional with VMWare fusion, and I've managed to *install* QBoxPro, as well as copied over the BWCC.DLL dependency. By install-- I mean when I originally ran the program, it told me that it depended on other archived files and gave me the option to unarchive everything-- so I did.. Then once running the exe, it complained the BWCC.DLL file was missing, so I copied it into the qboxpro directory and now when I launch the QBoxPro application, it gives me a warning "No coding table found in project". I've inspected the config file, and it clearly shows: [Coding_Tables] coding_table0=d6 coding_table1=5220 And in my QBoxPro directory, I see the files "D6RAD.COD" and "QV5220.COD"... So I don't understand why I am getting this warning? The readme file mentions that there is some sort of "qbprins.exe" installer, but that file does not seem to be anywhere in the zip file I downloaded from your resources. Can anyone help me out with getting this up and running on my machine? Thanks! -patrick
  6. Looking to buy Myarc Geneve card(s) preferably working but non-op okay. Please PM me.
  7. A few weeks ago I found a bug in one of my TI consoles. The screen display no longer functioned correctly from normal operation. I then opened the console according to the instructions from here and, as described in the article from here, unsoldered the probably defective DRAM chip. I ordered some TMS4116 chips from China some time ago. I then inserted one of them into the IC socket. With the new chip, however, the screen remained black. I then tried a few china chips, but always with a black screen. When I simply left out the chip, I got the incomplete screen again! This is the bad Chip from China! Today I got a new delivery of NEC D416C -3 IC's, exactly these were also installed on the board. After inserting one of these ICs, the TI has a complete picture again. This is the good chip! Everything seems to work as usual!
  8. Cleaning out the garage I found a box of old games. From my (brief) research, the most interesting one seems to be Jumpy from Databiotics. I played these games a lot, hopefully they can find a better home than the dump. Photo attached, send me a message if you're interested.
  9. For those who still prefer to purchase on eBay, i've moved all my 3D printed stuff to a new account: c0d3m4st4_3d The other account was shared with a friend, and we were short of free monthly listings, so i decided to move all my 3D printed stuff to a new one Same items, support, quality and communication, only low feedback for now.. hopefully that will change soon http://www.ebay.es/usr/c0d3m4st4_3d IMPORTANT NOTES: UPDATE: seems transit times to the U.S. are shorter now (finally!), still not as fast as last year, but all parcels should be there in 15 days max, let me know if not received in 15 days after i send you the tracking number. - Shipping to Mexico and South America, absolutely at your own risk. Unacceptable customs delays in most cases, and some unexpected returns for no reason. If returned (safe, of course) i will only refund 80% of the item cost, but won't refund the postage cost. If declared lost, i will only refund whatever compensation the Spanish postal service offers (this is the amount payed for postage + a small compensation). - U.S. buyers can purchase from www.arcadeshopper.com when he has stock available Hey there. Some of you may already know me or even purchased from me on eBay or the Ti99 forum. I'm listing here all my 3D printed cases from now on offering cheaper prices (item + shipping) than on eBay (no eBay fees, no PayPal fees). Only shipping once or twice a week... mostly mondays and fridays, but not always... (kinda random shipping days ) so please, be patient... max you will wait before getting a tracking number is 5 working days. Please note, due to the manufacturing process (home 3D printing with non-professional equipment) cases might have imperfections here and there... but they will do the job. 3D printing is not comparable with mold injection Payments should be made by PayPal (in euro) using the send money to friends/family option (if you have PayPal funds or bank account linked to your account, if no funds and only credit card linked to your account, final price will be increased in 3.5% + 0.35 which is the PayPal fee). All cases include screws when needed. 3D printed case for FinalGROM 99 - 17.50 euro 4 colours available: green, white, orange and black. Design as pictured (for color options, please check FlashROM 99 case until i get some cases printed in the other colors). All cases include two 3D printed buttons in green and orange colors for the reset buttons (if you prefer them both in the same color, please, let me know when you contact me to purchase). Necessary screws included as usual. This one is for the fully assembled PCB including LED and push buttons. SD card inserts completely in the case... not an inch is left outside. I took the pics with it "ejected" from the socket. 3D printed case for FlashROM 99 - 20 euro --- Ω --- blog entry for this case HERE 4 colours available: green, white, orange and black. Design as pictured. All cases include 3 x 3D printed buttons in different colours, one matching your case, and 2 random ones to test where to sand or cut the plastic post in the button to match your reset switch height. 3D printed case for NanoPEB v1 - 20 euro IMPORTANT: Please double check to make sure your NanoPEB is the same i used to design these cases. Check with these pics, or contact me including a pic of yours to make sure it is the same model if you have any doubt, as i've seen different models of v1 floating around. --- Ω --- blog entry for this case HERE Available in black color only at least for now, i don't have much stock of other color filament. Since it seems there are many versions of these devices, please, check following pictures with measures and exact model to make sure yours will fit in the case. Ask me first if you have any doubt. The rough surface near the switch is caused because this is printed upside down and need a support structure in that area, so first layer is not very well done This is the only way to go to make it easier and faster to print, and getting a plain surface on the front. Slide-in lid to access CF card, works quite well. Please note if you have big fingers you will still have some problems to extract the card properly, you can lift it a bit (there is extra room for that) to make it easier. 3D printed case for CF7 - 20 euro IMPORTANT: Please double check to make sure your CF7 is the same i used to design these cases. Check with these pics, or contact me including a pic of yours to make sure it is the same model if you have any doubt, as i've seen different models floating around. --- Ω --- blog entry for this case HERE Available in black color only at least for now, i don't have much stock of other color filament.

Please note if you have big fingers you will still have some problems to extract the card properly, you can lift it a bit (there is extra room for that) to make it easier. Thanks to schmitzi for sending me CF7 and NanoPEB so a case could be made. 3D printed case for jedimatt42 32K expansion - 15 euro --- Ω --- blog entry for this case HERE 4 different designs for top cover (plain, with logo, plain with window for expansion port, or with logo and window). Snap-in lid to cover the expansion port window in case you don't want to use it for now but you go for the window version for future use). Fits nicely. Will include an extra lid just in case, as it is the weakest part (should be good for normal use, but no doubt it will degrade and fall if you keep inserting/removing it a lot). 3D printed case for Amstrad C4CPC flash cart - 12 euro Mod of the original case to replace the weak tabs with screws and fix text for FDM 3D printers. Available in creamy white color only. 3D printed shell for Turbo Ever Drive v1.x flash cart - 5 euro With or without USB socket. Suitable for PCB revs. 1.x (not suitable for v2!). Available colors: gray, creamy white, orange, dark green. 3D printed case for MATEOS burner / dumper - 9 euro This is a redesign of my previous version. Now with screws. Available colors: gray, creamy white, orange, dark green. Suitable for PCB rev. 1.4 Fully assembled Tapuino - Commodore 64/VIC20/C16 datasette emulator - 50 euro Allows you to load .TAP files (tape backups) directly from a microSD card (not included). You can also save your own programs and copy to/from tape by connecting a real datasette to the port on the back. Fully assembled in a screwless 3D printed compact case. Upgradeable firmware. I can flash it in your desired language (English, Spanish, German, Italian or Turkish). Basic usage instructions included (in English or Spanish only). Professionally made PCB. For C16 compatibility, you need an adapter, which i haven't built, so i haven't really tested C16 compatibility, but it is in the firmware and project docs, so guess it should work. More cases coming soon Shipping cost (everything is shipped from Spain): I always ship boxed, and with tracking number. Sometimes the tracking numbers do not work with some postal services around the world, as i ship as "letter" to keep it cheap, and it seems they don't scan them on arrival, so contact me after 15 days if you haven't received your parcel so i can claim and they can start investigating the issue with your postal service. 2 weeks should be enough to arrive to U.S.A. but it may take up to a month (even more) for Asia and Australia. I ship to most destinations, but not all, so contact me to check if i will ship to your country if not listed below. Postage prices updated on Jan 1st, 2018 - To Japan / Australia / USA / Other countries : Up to 100 grams: 7.50 euro Up to 500 grams: 14 euro - To Europe: Up to 100 grams: 6.50 euro Up to 500 grams: 10.50 euro Feedback: Please, when your items arrive, it will be good if you can leave your feedback here, so everyone knows how i'm doing.Thanks. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/255013-c0d3m4st4/ If you have any problem or question about with your item, contact me first!
  10. This is a neat device that emulates 1-2 ST506/ST412 or other MFM hard disks for reading and or writing. Can be used to pull data off disks or to emulate disks for that old computer you don't have drives for. I think I read somewhere it can be passed thru to a VM. Possibly this could work for MAME/MESS emulated systems? TI-99 has been tested with the system and works for reading WDS-100 disks. Emulation works for reading, but writing fails this point. Probably have to be patched for the TI/Myarc sector layouts, directory structure, bitmaps, etc. (not enough info yet to correct, it says), but the actual writing appears to work. Works with a wide variety of other systems. List here: http://www.pdp8online.com/mfm/status.shtml There is a group buy under way right now if you want to check it out. Pricing seems reasonable. http://www.pdp8online.com/mfm/ Emulator uses a BeagleBone Black/BeagleBone Green Wireless for the actual processing. Interesting. Go team, TI! 🙂
  11. I have 2 TI-99s and 2 TI Cassette Recorders for sale, and a box of 14 game cartridges. You can purchase 1 or both systems. Both are in working condition and I have played all the games. Joysticks and 2 transceivers included. I need to sell these items this week because I’m moving.
