RAM DISK - Interest check

RAM DISKS - Interest check  

42 members have voted

  1. 1. If someone was to come out with a NEW version of a Horizon RAM Disk would you be interested in purchasing one?

  2. 2. If someone was to come out with a NEW version of the Super AMS card would you be interested in purchasing one?

  3. 3. What format would you prefer?

    • Sidecar Design
    • Card in the P-Box
    • Other (if checked, post a message for clarification)
      0
  4. 4. How much memory do you think a card like this should have?

  5. 5. How much would you be willing to spend for an assembled product?

  6. 6. Would a BONUS option make you more willing to purchase one?

    • YES
    • NO
    • IF yes, speech internal, but nothing else.
    • IF yes, a real time clock, but nothing else.
    • If yes, both speech internal & a real time clock
    • Just keep the cost down and give me the memory only.

Funnelweb and MENU (for the Horizon RAMdisk) are two programs that fit the TI like a glove. I usually run MENU in auto-start mode then launch into either the cartridge or one of the menu items like Funnelweb, Disk Utilities, Archiver, etc. Funnelweb has its own menus in addition to the built-in editor, assembler, and loaders. Unfortunately, like many other V9938-aware programs, it cannot run without the extra VRAM, therefore the F18A is not 80-column compatible.

Hey Jim,Bob et al....

 

What size sram does the rd you are building use?

 

I'm pretty sure they're 32k chips with a max of 16 of them for 512k total capacity.

Gazoo is correct. :)

 

... and the DSR has recently been updated to extend the drive selection from it's previous choices of 1 to F. The choices are now 1 to Z. ;)

Ok. I assumed that the DDR was the ros8.14 but that sounds not to be the case?

 

Thanks for the answer on the sizes as well.

Correct, it's got it's own DSR. :)

I've been working on assembly of a couple of test articles over the holidays, so this one is definitely still in the works. It isn't ready for pre-orders yet, as I first have to verify that I got all of the traces on the layout done properly with the test articles--after that is proven one way or the other, I'll do a production run order. Depending on my available time, that may not be before the April/May timeframe. Life and hobbies don't always mix well, just ask my wife. :)

How can I use the entire memory on the Foundation 128k memory card on the TI99/4a?

Using DU2k's DSR search, it lists MEM96, MEM96A, MEM96B, MEM96C, MEM96D and MEMINIT.

I tried the Basic CALL statement on these DSR names resulting in Bad name, error.

Is there a program that allows setting up the portion of the memory above 32K as a ramdisk?

There is a replacement eprom available that effectively turns the foundation card into a Myarc 128k. It allows using the card as a ram disk. I believe you can run Myarc XBII as well. I got two of them for my Foundation cards from Hummingbird EPROMs.

I also have the QS-Ramdisk software somwhere. 

That would be great if you have that software as it was written specifically for the Foundation 128k card.
