Well, I do not know in other place but in italy, with a tracked shipping and a declared value of $20, the custom duty are calculated on the total result of $20+cost of the item+23% so it is happened that i paid about 20,00 for a $20,00 declared value from USA.

 

It is not sure that this cost will be applied but it have a good % to be charged.

 

This risk is equal to zero if shipped from european country.

yep, but obviously TTIP is coming. This should make it much easier.

But I don´t like it for many other reasons....

If you declare the cost of the package to be $10 I expect that you won't get charged any import duty in Europe ;).

is not ALWAYS TRUE groovyBee :( ... sometimes i got a contact from the customs that asking to me to declare the contents of the package and they are reserved the possibility to open it if there was suspicious on it...

when i told him there were old videogames they added about €20,00 ... the same happened if it was marked as Gift.


some other times the package arrived to me without costs added... i think there is been 50% of possibility at today. i purchased hundreds of ti99's packages from USA in the years :)

Who the hell are they to determine the value versus what you paid? I know "they" do crap like that on various industries (textiles, etc.) but for private purchases?! :mad:

Yep, european customs are a pita. A couple of years ago I bought a P-Code card in its original wrapping. They unboxed it to look inside, otherwise I would not be allowed to take it with me......

That kinda ruined it for me.

 

EDIT: to be more specific... that should read german customs.

I don't like the German nor the Dutch customs. :thumbsdown: Both are a pita.

So much negativity, I love Dutch and German customs, particularly the crazy smoking and the eating of pancakes, I also love the drinking of real beer and eating unatural amounts of Bratwurst and Bratkartoffeln. ;)

How could it happen I didn´t see this thread? Jet Set Willy for the TI 99, that´s amazing! Thanks Rasmus that you also uploaded a Jet Set Willy video on Youtube so that I found out about this.

I'm still planning to release another bug-fix version. It was sent to the QA department yesterday. :)

Here is the absolute final version of Jet Set Willy.

 

 

Bugs fixed:

  • You landed in the wall while jumping up through "Halfway up the East Wall"
  • Jumping from "Halfway up the East Wall" into "Priests' Hole" only worked sometimes
  • Items at head height could not be picked up while walking left (West Wing Roof)

Funny, I am sitting here in front of my computer and currently working on a video about old classic TI 99 speech synthesizer games and when I saw the post from Rasmus I thought that maybe I will show that together with Sabre Wulf at some point. :-D

Any chance of a VECTREXROLI Extended Basic v2.7 Suite video? 99% of the reason I put together the software was in hopes of making it to a VECTREXROLI video. :cool:
