TI Scramble - Scramble clone

Recommended Posts

Rasmus, I am happy to demo your programs. I will also update the tigameshelf.net site to include them this weekend so that they will be widely available to the TI community.

Please send me via PM a short bio of yourself, the latest versions of both programs (Titanium and Scramble) and any technical/historical notes you wish for me to mention.

Great. I will send you the information you need. For now, the latest versions are attached to the first post of the respective threads.

Rasmus, its amazing!

I have now got an TI from ebay. I try to find the memory expansion etc. because i always like to use software on real machine.

 

That is about the best compliment a programmer can get!

Hey Rasmus, you know your program is GREAT when someone buys a computer because of it! :)

I bought my first Amiga because of "Shadow of the Beast." Can we get a port of that, too? ;)

Oh "Shadow of the Beast" i never forget. Today i set up the TI, and he work. :)

Is there any "Multi-Cart" or what is the best and easiest way to play homebrew on the real TI?

The least expensive way to get a memory expansion (that I know of) is to get an Nano-PEB. They become available on Ebay from time to time, or someone here might actually want to part with one.

 

Here is a photo of a Nano-PEB...

Nano PEB Subdued Lighting

It sure is smaller than the Peripheral Expansion Box... and it'll cost a lot less for shipping too!
ENJOY!

Ugh... my CF7+ has a cable and the power input is on the front. I like the way that nanoPEB looks, especially slapped right on to the side of the TI.

Sounds like it's time to upgrade buddy!

Here is what mine looks like in my den....

I'm thinking about making a Scramble clone, with smooth scrolling graphics, of course.

 

 

And two months later:

 

 

 

WOW, very nicely done! This is going right on the nanopeb, thanks for your efforts and freely sharing the result! :D

I have a question for you, is the version purchased at this site a V2 or "COM1" unit, or are these the basic "RS-232"? People might be interested to know if they had a choice.

I don't know if they have the latest version now. The two nanoPEBs I bought from this site were SIO versions. It wasn't entirely problem free, the first one was delivered without the CF card, the second one had a badly soldered connector. But that's nothing compared to waiting for months for a unit to show up on ebay.

The only problem I had was getting it to switch to the non F18A mode, via the F key. Either the program crashed afterwards, or didn't switch the mode.

 

 

I have tested it on my console, and I don't have this problem. Anyone else?

Rasmus, my only weird question on Stargames: I wonder if they have permission from Jaime to reproduce his devices--or if they just purchased them from him in bulk quantities? Since Jaime rarely produces more than a few at a time, I'm suspecting they are building them on their own (this is not a hit on them either here, just a question that popped up in my mind when I looked at their site, since it didn't specify).

The fact that they have 2-3 days delivery time (not weeks or months) on the nanoPEB does indicate that they don't get them from the US.

Just wanted to mention that we've played TI-Scramble again at the TI meeting on Wednesday. Klaus has updated his F18A chip, and now it runs flawlessly.

 

Here's a photo of Klaus playing the game on the TI-99 at the meeting:

Saw this on a real TI99/4 at a vintage fair today. Very impressive! I would have sworn that the TI99 was not capable of a game of this quality.
