I could swear I had read a discussion here some time ago about there being two versions of the first TI Home Computer, the TI-99/4 but can't seem to find it anywhere. I am asking because I've recently gotten a hold of one of these, but am waiting on a cable to arrive in order to hook it up to a modern display in order to find out if it even still works. I'm just curious to know what was different between the two if indeed there were two versions of it. Unfortunately the one in my possession had the serial number scratched off of it so it may be impossible to determine which one I have. I think it would be based on the serial number matching up to the production run. Regardless, if someone could confirm or deny that there were two different 4's, I'd greatly appreciate it.
I've been working on this awhile, but figured it may be about time to give it some exposure: The INTV Funhouse Variants Browser! http://intvfunhouse.com/games/variants.php It's still got some bugs, but please let me know when you find something wrong in the behavior as well as in the data. There are many features missing, and the page doesn't have a title bar or anything spiffy. So consider this also a request for help in IDing the bugs and requesting features. The behavior is still a little strange sometimes when dealing with searching by language, and much of that data is not accurate or consistent - I'll need a lot of help and input from this community to get that fixed up. And a lot of patience, too! The lists also are not sortable, though they are ordered at least somewhat sanely. Another missing feature is the ability to easily request a correction or submit info, though a PM from here or a message submission from the links at the page footer will do as well. You should be able to at least see easily how many variations of boxes there are for a game, labels, manuals, etc. Please give it a try, and let me know what you think!
Time for another Cmart mini-collection. This time we'll look at all the ECS games, including all variations, as well as all the hardware. Let's start with an overview of everything. (Except the bloody ECS Synths, which I forgot about and had to include later). This includes all the variations of the 6 games, 13 in total, plus the two new Intelligentvision games just for fun (and completeness ). There are also two versions of the ECS Computer Module, the more common white version (the North American release), and the less common brown version (for PAL land). There are also white and brown versions of the ECS Music Synth, but strangely they both come in the box with the white Synth on the front. For reasons I'm not clear on, I now seem to be able to only post one picture per post, so I'm going to take up the next nine posts to fill in the details. And now for the usual disclaimer....if anyone finds something ECS related that I don't have, you know what to do. I'll make it worth your while. (In trade Rev, and by that I mean games.)
