TIPI enabled software listing

Recommended Posts

DIRW


TIPI compatible BASIC program to replace TI's CATALOG program. 

 

This program is based on the old CATALOG TI's Catalog program (from the Disk Manager booklet)

CATALOG is a little long on the tooth and outdated when using TIPI.

 

DIRW runs from with TI BASIC or Extended BASIC.

  • It provides a "wide" format directory listing of TI drives (Tested with TIPI and NanoPEB). This reduces screen scroll when I am looking for specific files.
  • It tags Directories and Programs in the output.
  • It accepts single digits for DSK numbers.  If you have a DSK0 or DSK4 then "0" or "4" will work.
  • You can type text as well:  "DSK1." or "TIPI.DEV" will both work if the directories exist.
  • There is no error checking as this will run on plain jane TI BASIC.  Text must be in upper case.
  • The screens are pretty self explanatory and the program can be easily edited to add any necessary features!
  • It is, by design, "no-frills".

 

Screen example:

 

Errors will occur if 

Drive/Disk is NOT present!

(*Dir +Program NoMark=Files)

 

Type digit for DSK# or Text for TIPI.

 

Mapped Disk: TIPI.DEV<blinking cursor>

 

This Returns (example):

 

Volume in TIPI.DEV is TIPI

Directory(+=Prg *=Dir):

 

1SCRATCH* BLANK* DIRW+

SSAVER+ SXB* SXB/DOCS*

 

Dir/Files(s): 4/3

Used:1440 Free:1438

..Again(Y/N)?<blinking cursor>

 

I hope that this file is useful.  Please, let me know if you have any problems with it!

TIPIMAP - by Gregory McGill (me)

TIPIMAP was written because I found it cumbersome to CALL TIPI and then try and remember the path to a folder like TIPI.GAMES.XB.ADVENTURE.WEREWOLF

Instead you are shown a list of directories on the TIPI and you can arrow up/down/forward/back and select the directory you want to be DSK1 and then press 1 to map the directory to the DSK1. configuration in TIPI.

Also 2 maps DSK2 and 3 maps DSK3

 

TIPIMAP is written in Extended Basic and can be loaded with

OLD PI.http://ftp.whtech.com/Users/Gregory%20McGill/TIPIMAP

TIPIMAP has been updated to support DSK4 and also improved keyboard responsiveness

I have a question about using disk 1,2 inside the peb shell.

If I map TIpi drives 1,2 I seem to lose my, what I call, Local disk 1 or 2 that are attached to the ti disk controller.

So ive not been mapping TIpi drives 1,2.?

I still want local dsk1,2 to continue functioning.

Thx

I am thoroughly impressed by the IRATA.ONLINE PlatoTerm platform. The PLATO content is tantalizing and will take a long time to explore.

This is a must for any TIPI owner. I set up my URI2 to HTTP://TI99.IRATA.ONLINE and access it via a CALL TIPI("URI2.PLATO"). I have also set up a Mega Menu entry for it for even easier access. You do however have to set up an account with IRATA.ONLINE first.

Now if you'll excuse me I've got to go back to it for more exploration :)

I'm glad you're enjoying it! That's one of the reasons it is there. :)

 

I would like to point out, that all of this content, was developed by the users of PLATO, ON the system itself. There is a complete development environment that can be used to make new 'lessons'...an example of this is e.g. jthiele/atari created a simple version of Hammurabi at 'jtwork' (which he does need to finish) ;)

I get what you see below, but YES, using the F18A's 80 column capability for display would be AWESOME!

<Image is shown his original post.  DG: It is a mess!>

For us non-F18 TIPI users, I've modified arcadeshopper's original program (I believe he did the original?)  to be better suited to the TI's 28 column screen.  The listing gives full credits.

There are 2 files in the zip.  One is a TIDBIT's listing  (my first use of it.  Thanks mattew18, I found it to be incredible!). 

The 2nd listing is a native Extended BASIC listing generated by TIDBIT.

I was playing with Super Extended BASIC's features with this program.  If you use the SXB to run it it will display a clock and few more tweaks.892200588_TIPIWeather.thumb.jpg.1bd97b0133b6605a4ce584cecb340640.jpg

I've truncated some of the return data, removed excess technical data, and added a word-wrap routine to clean up the screen.

In the AGAIN? (bottom of included screen): 

You can Enter:

  • Y to enter and new station.
  • N to Exit to BASIC.
  • R to Repeat/Update the last Station's Info. 
  • X to Exit to Force Command. (If you use it.  If not you should!)

The code can be easily modified to Specific regions.  (See the listing's contents.).  

If you find errors or have suggestions, let me know.  This has kept be occupied for a few days.  On to another project!

Are the links that were described in the above post still working properly?

(I can still see the group chat on myti99.com (as well as Chess). )

 

SNEK seemed to work?  CHESS had character display problems.  CHATTI seemed to throw errors.  Are these links now obsolete?

I loaded chatti sat but it had issues

I let Corey know


What exactly are you getting

Sure. 

Examples are shown.  Note:  SNEK works, but it shows errors on Score Screens.

myti99.com works fine.  (Pretty good score on scorch GM!)

 

(hope it isn't my TIPI?)

No I confirm either something's changed on Corey's server or something in the last couple of revisions of the TIPI software has broken chatti and chess

It's all working now. The code behind the old site uses Python 2 which is end-of-lifed. It still should run, just won't be maintained. I installed Python 3 for another project with the intent of running both until I upgrade all the code running on Python 2. Installing Python 3 also upgraded a library in the Python 2 installation, which caused another library to need updating, which I manually did. Anyway it's all good now.

CALL TIPI("PI.HTTP://myti99.com/COMBATTI")

 

do it

If anyone tried and was getting reboots, please try again. Greg pointed out that this was happening to him and a re-publish of the code fixed it.

Does anyone know what group you should use when connecting? The help says to "enter the group name given to you"
