  1. With all the stuff I've lately, it got me thinking. It seems to me that a lot of things are available in the TI environment, that if brought together could really change the paradigm and set a new standard for our little ‘orphan’. The GROMS in the console for example, like Tursi showed us, with the 99/8 code floating around, we could ‘borrow’ the lower case code and replace what is already in the TI. If there are any new commands that can be ‘lifted and used’, all the better. We could possibly even change the default CYAN/BLACK screen to something a little bit more reasonable, possibly DARK BLUE/WHITE. Any of you have any ideas of something you would like to see changed or added to the basic console? It appears this may now be a possibility. Also, if there is a way to cram some extra stuff into the chips, and if the parts are available, possibly even a utility or two. (If you have not already done so, check out Tursi’s video, you’ll start drooling when you think of the possibilities he presents). Now there is that 512K UBER CART that will emulate GROM as well. Can you imagine a hacked version of Extended BASIC, or an Extended version of say RXB that had built-in routines to use and exploit the extended graphics modes of the F18A, while also staying backward compatible. Sweet!
  2. Has anyone one ever considered turning a spare TI console into a dedicated weather station? I got to thinking today (I know uh oh), anyway the TI joystick has 5 digital inputs that could be used for other things... One input, say the fire button could be used for an anemometer. A simple XB program could be written to count impulses from a simple mechanical sending unit and 'set' to a baseline. The impulses could be compared to a clock (an existing software based clock) for calculation. The other four digital inputs could be used for a very rough wind direction display (N,S,E, & W) if more than two inputs can be scanned at one time (I don't know if that is possible), it might be possible to use those four inputs for 8 different readings like (NE, SW, etc.) Now the temperature part has me baffled. Is there any place on the TI that could be used as an ANALOG input? If so, some transistors can be used because the values change based on temperature, the program would just need to be written to translate the resistance value to a known temp. So calibration with a real thermometer would be a must for every individual system. This could even possibly be combined with an X10 project to turn on a heater below a set temperature, or using a solar cell when a value goes below a certain light threshold, to turn on a lamp.
  3. Looking to own an Xbox that has been modded with Evolution to be able to possibly place emulators on and play backups. PM me with offers. Much appreciated!
  4. I know there are some pretty talented hardware guys here in the TI forum on Atari Age. I also know there are many ways to accomplish the same task. This made me ponder how, and by which means or methods you guys would take towards creating a wireless joystick. 1) Would you design & create your own interfacing methods? 2) Would you use pre-existing off the shelf components? Basic Questions.... A) Is there something 'out there' that could be modified to work as a receiver dongle for the joystick port? B) Anything small enough to fit in a joystick as the transmitter with the battery? C) What pre-existing joystick would consider using? As I've been focusing on my modernized and updated small footprint system, I'm thinking of other ways to pack more punch into the limited space?
  5. I have a technical/feasibility/interest question for the programmers and hardware gurus out there. Would there be any way to construct a device that one could load a bit-mapped graphic into that would be able to wrestle control away from the main TI screen? I believe it’s possible, because if I remember correctly, my old CorComp disk drive controller used to by-pass the main TI-Screen. I envision a small pass-thru device that plugs into the side of the TI, before the fire-hose or Nano-PEB. This little device would have enough memory to store the graphic, and using Tursi’s TMS9918A converter, that could be just about be anything the user wants. I suppose it could also be constructed to support the F18A formats as well! Of course there would also have to be a software program written that would take the image and program it into the chip. So my questions are: 1) Is it possible? 2) Is anyone interested
  6. I have a question for people running CF7’s or Nano-PEB’s… Do any of you have a REAL-TIME CLOCK installed in your systems? Does one even exist? If not… one of those “clocks-on-a-chip” could be mounted on a small PCB with a chip containing the DSR software and support circuitry, it could then be easily be soldered onto the speech synthesizer circuit board and reside within the same case! Since the speech synthesizer has that little door, it would also give easy access to a battery holder mounted right underneath. This is an option I WOULD BUY! For some Uber programmers, this code would be childs play. If it could be compatible with say, the old CorComp Clock, people would be able to have full functionality in old very useful programs like “Remind-Me!”, use the “Super Clock Support utilities” or even new stuff that could be released in the future. Does this type of thing interest any of you NANO-PEB or CF7 users? P.S. -- One question added later... It's been 24 years now, so my memory is foggy, but didn't the BOOT MENU program also make use of the Real-Time Clock feature of the CorComp card?
