  1. From the album: Pi99/4a Project

    Funky Leggo based optical cable support that extends the status lights to the front of the TI99/4a case... hey why do something electronically that you can accomplish OPTICALLY! Yeah, yeah, I hear you grousing out there... hey Im an artist. I will leave it to my son to someday but in proper LEDs. : )

    TOD

    From the album: Computing in Modern Times

    My 7yr old gets to play classic games if he first writes a simple program in basic. TOD!

    EMULATION! You can't have a computer that LOOKS like a TI99/4a and not have it at least FUNCTION as a TI99/4a! ti99sim is installed under Raspbian and working great... still need to figure out how to access disks, but it looks good!

    PI994a 2205

    From the album: Pi99/4a Project

    As did this... It is a little tricky getting an ethernet cable plugged in but I think I can live with that.

    PI994a 2199

    From the album: Pi99/4a Project

    Had to make a minor mod to the case, but it fits well and won't prevent me from using it as a real TI in the future.

    Some "Product Photography" I did for the TI99/4A back in 2004 just for fun.

  9. From the album: My Distant Computer Past

    Long ago I made games for the TI99/4a. Don't recognize Hole in the Ground? Thats not surprising. I was a terrible business person. Heh. The game itself was pretty simple. Still, it came with a fully produced audio play on the flip side of the tape that set up the back story and this may be some of the coolest TI994a game packaging I can think of (illustration by Larry Sherman). I went on to release a couple of shareware WorldBuilder games for the Mac before realizing my talents were best used elsewhere and focusing on music and digital art.

    This is the PiCobbler that comes off the GPIO port of the Raspberry Pi 3. It fit perfectly thru the cartridge slot and when not in use tucks away behind the door. It plugs into a breadboard for electronics projects that can be controlled by the PI3.

  11. So, my 7 year old son has been learning Basic on one of my TI99/4a units set up in our living room, and as he was having a friend over today, I suggested that we put the computer away. He adamantly asked to leave it out and told me he wanted to show her something. I thought he wanted to show her some of the programming he had been learning so I agreed. Well, he kinda conned me... because when his friend came over he, started loading up Tunnels of Doom. I thought about putting the smackdown on this activity, but decided to see if she enjoyed playing. To my amazement, two first graders played TOD for well over an hour and loved it. They really had a great time! Like when they found a map and freaked out when they saw the locations of hidden rooms! It was really fun to watch and honestly, I didn't have to give them much, if, any help. Just when I was about to tell them that was enough screen time, they self regulated and started tearing around the house looking for other activities. Who would have thought that a game from 1982 could provide so much fun for young kids over three decades later.
  12. I have an idea for a project. My son is getting a Raspberry PI 3. I am hoping that this little computer will be for him what the TI99/4a was for me when I was young. I have seen people putting Raspberry PIs inside classic computers and for obvious nostalgic reasons this appealed to me. It would be nice to have all the bits contained in a roomy protective case and a classic computer just seems “right”. Plus I want to get various emulations of older computers running on it for him to mess around with… sort of his own personal computer museum. I know someone has done a mod like this with a TI99/4a before and I would only consider such a thing if I could find a unit that was headed for the recycling bin otherwise. In other words… No destruction of working units! No permanent modifications to the case. Salvage all parts and keep as replacement parts for my two TI994/a computers. I don’t think I would do the keyboard conversion (ruin a working TI99 keyboard? feels wrong) the PI 3 has BlueTooth so… I think we will leave the TI keyboard as decorative and use a wireless. I have been looking for a few weeks but I am a bit frustrated with eBay at the moment, people seem like they may be purposefully obscuring if potential units are working or not or just lack the knowledge to test them. I see a lot of units labeled "untested". The crazy thing is the prices for these non working or "untested" as-is units are not any less than a good deal an a nice working unit. I have passed on 2-3 nice looking and working TI99/4a auctions that closed at around $40 due to my unwillingness to take a useful unit out of circulation. The two sales on kinda ugly, beat up, definitely non working TI99s I currently find both work out to about that same price or more. I have also passed of a couple of "untested" or non-working sales because the shipping seemed outrageous (can they inflate that with a handling fee or something?). This is really making me regret the downfall of the huge computer surplus stores that used to exist. Questions for TI99/4a people: Do you like or hate this idea? Any ideas on getting a nice looking non functional unit that fits my criteria? Has anyone ever tried to buff the scratches out of a unit? (Steel Wool? Is it bare aluminum or is there a finish of some sort?) What is the current state of TI99/4a emulation on the Raspberry PI3? Anyone have one? I don’t know if the people that did the “TI PI” even bothered to get a TI emulator running on it. All I could see is that they installed RetroPI, played some console games and called it a day. I have read that TI99/Sim can be made to work. My goal would be for the PI99/4a to sit proudly in our entertainment center and act as a TI99/4a by default, but with the switch of a card could be one of several classic computers or a computer with a modern OS. Thanks in advance for any advice you would like to share.

    Look at my messy optical cable ends wrapped in electrical tape and shoved in the hole left by the TI99s power LED. I have a plan to mound this better it involves some Sugru putty and a hollowed out LED lens that fits in that spot.

    Need to get proper ties to secure the cables in place. The HDMI is a bit stiff, should have spent extra on a thinner one...

    It all fit together amazingly well, no real electronics skill involved... more of an art project. : )

  19. Help! Hi, I got a Ti99/4a PAL version and when I plug it in it shows this.. I have checked the power supply and the internal power board and it gives correct voltage. So it is a chip. I have seen on google that can be from Static ram to CPU... Does anybody know what chip is faulty?
