  1. Hey all, I'm wondering ... how uncommon are the TI-99/4A manuals in good condition? I ask because I saw some that appear to be in great condition in a currently 0 bids listing on eBay for cheap enough for me to be interested in buying. They're listed along with some carts that probably few people want which I suspect is why the lack of bids. Anyway, it pains me to see books destroyed, and I consider it almost criminal to destroy books that are hard to come by, but slicing off bindings and putting them in a sheet feeder is the best way to get a good, clean scan. And I've seen the scans we've got--they weren't done that way and are consequently not very easy to read as a result. And because they're left as basically large slightly askew pictures of pages, things like mobile PDF viewers crap out trying to zoom in enough to even begin trying to read the often not great text. Rather frustrating, it is. So that's what I propose to do--to slice, scan, and add searchable text. And it seems like that in and of itself might be a worthwhile endeavor. But if others are interested in helping, I think we might be able to take it further and actually remaster those manuals. It's something I've considered proposing in the Apple // community as well, but there's a lot more manuals there and I tend not to see them offered cheaply enough for me to fork over the cash myself ([email protected]@K ***RARE*** !!!STEVE JOBS!!!) so ... that's not real likely. But here at least is what I gather were some of the manuals that would've come with the computer, and they're in good shape, so ought to scan as well as such manuals could. The text blocks should OCR well for searchability and non-skewed black-and-white graphics tend to compress well without quality loss. If the layout can be recreated, text reflowed into logical paragraphs and sections, and figures recreated as vector images ... That'd fully remaster the original manuals, and they could be rendered into other formats like ePub as well. Am I the only guy in the world who really wants that enough to do anything about it though? And am I contemplating destroying something that is rare and in demand because I saw a rare great deal on eBay? Answers to questions like these will inform my decision as to what, if anything, to do about any of this.
  2. Is there any information out there on the Geneve's ASIC? (documentation, datasheets, etc.) I assumed there wouldn't be very much considering that it wasn't a very popular system, but I can't really find anything at all.
  3. I am putting together documentation for this very old and quite rare module from 1979/80. This is my work for the cold dark days... . The Advertiser module (aka Advertizer aka Infospot aka (not official) PHM3063) did not place itself i on the console menu and just added extra CALLs to TI Basic for use in shop displays, convention notice boards, and interactive query points. The start of the project is at: http://shawweb.myzen.co.uk/stephen/3063.htm I have the demo disk from Atariage- some of the programs don't seem happy with the module image I have, but very few of them look official, and the users were probably experimenting as I am. The module image I have is the German one- anyone have an English or French version? Does anyone have ANY documentation in any language? I am doing this the hard way, just as we did with PRK Basic before the TI document landed in our laps, way back when... I have disassembled some of the GPL. What I would also appreciate is pictures of the module- outside and if possible inside! With permission to put on the above web page... Thanks Stephen
  4. I'm looking for help in modernizing the Stella manual, making it look nicer as well as improving the layout, readability, etc. I know documentation is not something a lot people like to work on, but I'm hoping there's at least a few aspiring tech writers here. The main issue is that the current document is a single HTML file that's over 140KB! Ideally I'd like some of the following: break the document up into multiple files (chapters per topic, etc) improve the look with CSS, better fonts, etc improve the readability, looking at it from a users POV and see if it actually explains things improve the layout, again from a users POV, to make sure the more advanced topics aren't being presented when they aren't needed any other issues/problems that might need to be fixed I understand that this is a fairly big undertaking, and I appreciate any help anyone can provide. My only absolute condition is that the manual has to be static (no PHP, etc), as it will be viewed on client systems that don't have a web server installed. I can't offer any payment for this. I can only consider this as a Stella donation, and credit you in the Credits list. Please let me know if you're willing to take a stab at this.
  5. Finally got around to going through my 'Command Modules' to determine how many manuals I'm missing. Turns out there are far fewer than I anticipated, but enough to stick in my collector craw. Some I'm probably hopeless to find (Disk Manager 1 / Word Radar), while others maybe not so much (I mean, someone's gotta have a Weight Control & Nutrition or Story Machine). Anyway, thought I'd cast my line...PM me if you have any of these you'd like to swap for a few bucks. TI Label Disk Manager Disk Manager II Computer Math Games II Computer Math Games III Computer Math Games VI Equations Measurements and Formulas Number Readiness Reading ON (TI version only) Scholastic Spelling 5 (3-hole punched workbook w/ colour box-front sheet - also need front sheet for 4) Story Machine Weight Control & Nutrition Word Radar Space Bandits Superfly Scott Foresman Frog Jump Multiplication 2 Number Bowling Reading Adventures Reading Cheers Also looking for a box-only for Jungle Hunt, but figure I'll have to re-purchase it CIB to get that, and I didn't list any Funware titles, because like ya, that's gonna happen!
  6. Good evening, Just a quick note about the scaned technical documentation, the ones found in the PDF, I have done an OCR action on one of them (Technical Overview) to see the feasability to have a clean PDF file. I wanted to give you the result of this action. What do you think about the results? Thanks, 02-TechnicalOverview_10-18.April.1995.pdf
  7. I came across a ton of Atari 800 stuff. I have like 8 cartridge games, a few 5.25 games, and just a ton of manuals/documentation. I collect video game stuff, but i really don't go much older than the 2600. Also, i don't typically collect complete, i'm normally a loose kinda guy... Anyway, i guess my question is, does anyone know what this stuff is worth and/or where would the best place be to trade or sell this stuff? I'm possibly considering keeping the 800 and drives (i doubt it though), but i would really rather see this stuff go to someone that would appreciate it instead of sitting in my basement. Anyway, any info on this stuff would be appreciated. Thanks. Here are some pictures: https://goo.gl/photos/VtazAC64EqDN4kXcA
