Why are there silver and beige versions of the 99? I have both but don't know the difference.

The only difference, as I understand, was the cost of production - the silver units were the early models, and the beige later units made to save on costs, when TI was losing money to competitors.

See NinerPedia here: http://www.ninerpedia.org/index.php/Frequently_Asked_Questions#Consoles

 

The only difference to care about, I think, is the v2.2 consoles, which were beige. If your title screen shows "v2.2", you have one. TI used v2.2 to lock out third-party vendors like Atari.

But it's worth noting that not all beige consoles have 2.2 motherboards. :)

That's right - I have two of the beige units, and neither are v2.2. Although it should be noted that for what ever reason, the 'newest' console oddly does not run Beyond WordWriter - the only third party software that I know of that won't run on that machine.

Now, if I could only do a direct transfer rather than a label.

 

Oh I LIKE THAT!

How much would you charge me to make a little label like that?

I was thinking of replacing the "Solid State Software" badge with an "F18A Equipped" badge, but your's is great!

A stamp? It really is nothing special. A $20 Casio label maker with black/clear label tape. Voila! It does look surprisingly good for what it is, though. I can send you a couple :)

Glad you appreciate them. One thing I really like about the way they print is the text matches up width-wise to "computer" and fits very well between. I would love to get a real badge print done. Might ask around.

 

And it looks like you do indeed have a very steady hand!

Not for lack of trying, though! :)

Here's my TI setup. Would really like to get a CF7+ or NanoPEB someday.

 

My Popeye label has seen better days. Anyone producing repros for these Parker Bros. games yet?

This is not me ! But I like the video. Actually quite funny. Guess my English is perhaps not much better, so I'll spare you for now.

Vectrexroli is a new user on here since last month, I'd be interested in getting hold of his homebrew games to put in Gamebase.
