Disk of Horrors, Big thanks to blackbox for putting this out there for Halloween enjoyment!

I few notes, I ran this on Classic99, setup was TI Disk Controller, automap Disk1.

HORRORA.dsk <> DSK1.

HORRORB.dsk <> DSK2.

HORRORC.dsk <> DSK3.

 

Everything seemed to run fine, the only time manual intervention is needed, is when you choose option A.

You will be asked: Insert Disk C into Drive 1.

  Just do a pull down of disks, in Classic99, remap DSK1 <> HORRORC.dsk and press Enter

Is there a scanned copy of Ralph Molesworth book, "Introduction to Assembly Language for the TI Home Computer" anywhere?

 

Was looking for a scanned copy, but could not find anywhere either within CYC or on Whtech.

 

Thanks.

Thanks for the links.  Didn't look under "stevedav", was looking for Molesworth.

Today a zip containing clean 480dpi TIF images scanned from the manual for McCann Software:
TPA TOOLBOX
- extras for their Printers Apprentice program.  The zip this time includes the disk directories and the warranty card.   You can find dsk files from the two disks below.

Read, print, OCR or PDF as you wish.

Like the Printers Apprentice this is in forth - and takes ages to load- BUT McCann has recompiled TI Forth so that this time you can use ANY disk copier on the disk.  This forth uses the standard disk file system rather than the "screens" that TI Forth users are used to. You can drop to TI Forth from the menu system and return to TPA Toolbox from Forth.

Here is a zip of hi res clean TIF images, scans of the manual for:
Son of the Disk of Dinosaurs by Ken Gilliland, Notung Softyware.

This package contained two disks with Dinosaur Facts, a 62 frame animation created with Comic Show, and a Paleontology Quiz.  There was a TI Artist landscape picture and 17 TI Artist instances of Dinosaurs.   The big fella on the cover of the manual is a Vulcanodon.

It is noted that the animation may not play happily with Geneve or Myarc disk controllers. Ken says that animating with TI Artist Plus works with Myarc controllers but is unsuitable for longer pieces.

Here is a zip with clean 480dpi hi res scans as TIF images of the 40 page manual for Millers Graphics disk based program:
ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS
for you to read, print, OCR or PDF.

If you do not know the program, please note it should be called Advanced DISK Diagnostics. There is one command to test writeable memory, everything else is about floppy disks and disk controllers.  Now you can format a bit of your floppy as SD and half as DD (if your controller supports it)!  Hide file names from directory lists!  And lots of other disruptive stuff.   You can find out if any files are fractured but have to use Disk Manager to unfracture them.
If you have any interest in the floppy system, floppy drives, floppy disks, this manual probably has the information you need.   If you have newer hardware note the command "DSR" to handle not-made-yet hardware.

For Ken Gilliland fans out there....

 


This week a zip of TIF image at 480dpi scanned from the manual for
THE BRIDE of the DISK OF DINOSAURS
by Ken Gilliland, Notung Software.
For you to read, print, OCR and PDF as you wish.

This zip contains the manual, the two disks as .dsk files, images of the two disk labels, and a text disk directory document (hint- use a monospace font such as Courier to view or print it).  And also a sheet of the various pictures in native resolution.

This disk set contains 13 TI Artist pictures (_P) with one in colour; 13 TI Artist instances (_I), an animation made with Comic Show (usual warning that it doesn't work with Myarc/Geneve disk controllers). Text content is an index of the various dinosaurs on the dinosaur disk sets from Notung and a list of dinosaur parks and museums.

Staying in the dinosaur age, my next task is a mammoth one- the telephone directory known as the manual for Millers Graphics "Explorer" - advanced notice- disconnect any hard drives before using Explorer. It can wipe them.
