Terminal Emulator 2 BBS's

Recommended Posts

Back around 1985, I called into a BBS I believe that was in Florida.  The BBS was the one and only BBS I saw that made heavy use of the TE2 interface to music and video displaying graphics and playing music.


Did that software survive?

Wonder if it was the same software that ran one in Milwaukee called 'The prancing pony'.  It had Tolkien theme and when you logged on you heard the TI say "welcome to the best... TI...  BBS".  color, sound, etc.

has some assembly code for TE2 checking, but limited to changing screen color only.

 

You will also find CARDET code in there as well. Since pin 8 of modems was DCD output and the TI RS232 pin 8 was output. He used TI RS232 pin19 wired to Pin 8 of the modem..... it worked as I ran that software back then.
