Just found a funny TI bumper sticker...

Recommended Posts

Going through some old boxes of stuff tonight, and found this.

Ah, the 'computer wars' days... can you imagine how brutal forums like these would be back then, with all these different platform users coming together? It'd be constant warfare.

I wonder if that number is still in service. Might be fun to give them a call.

 

"Hello? Yes, I saw your bumper sticker, and I was just wondering: do you still eat Apples for lunch?"

Owen, I'm psyched to put it on something, but I'm afraid of picking the wrong thing and having it not be as visible as it deserves. I'll probably wait till my basement room is finished and put it somewhere in a place of honor. I have another one somewhere with "I (heart) TI 99/4A" in that classic 'computer letters' font... they'll have to go up together.

Damn.... Well, I was going to offer my prized *The Attack cart as trade collateral. How about 10 Household Budget Management carts? :)

Throw in a dozen "Teach Yourself BASIC" cassettes and we might be in the ballpark...

I'll see your "Teach Yourself BASIC" tapes and raise you a pair of wired remote joysticks....

 

 

ONLY if the second stick doesn't work at all and fire button #1 only shoots when you hit it with a brick.

I thought that was standard on all??? Is it not?

 

Due to a factory glitch, a few actually made it out that work like a charm, but they fixed that problem right quick.

Yea--- my speech synth only cusses... It was a modification on the original TI-99/4.

 

Parsec-- "Press Fu** to begin"

Alpiner-- "You f**ing a**hole, that was a dumb move!!"

Early Learning Fun-- "Are you a f***in' retard?!"

 

Yea--- I don't even know if that Alpiner one is a mod.... That announcer is a sarcastic b*tch

They were designed to malfunction, it makes playing games with them more challenging.

 

Really, how easy would TI Invaders be if it shoot a bullet everytime you wanted it to.

Man that so 80's, I use the PROPLAY game pad, the only new game controller designed for the TI in 20 years.

You know I'll be using that mother when it's ready to be shipped. :). I bet my Henhouse score goes up 2000-3000 points. ;)

Well a REAL TI developer wouldn't let a little thing like Thanksgiving get in the way... ;-)

God, I'm rusty!!!! First time through I got whacked... second time... not too much better

 

I never used anything but the original TI controllers with my (the family) TI. In fact, the same ones we had forever. I guess I got one of the rare sets that worked. In later years I had an Atari adapter and used an Epyx joystick, but for some reason I am locked into playing certain platforms with the "proper" controllers or I cannot play for spit.

 

Anyway, I was happy to discover that I could still hit the saucer down to pixel size :)
