FG99 CARt SHOW

Recommended Posts

Today the photo by @pixelpedant of his FinalGROM 99 (pictured directly below) cartridge inspired this thread.

It appears there are many different cases, buttons and labels out there for this cartridge so this cartridge might be classified as "the most personal cartridge" for the TI in looks as well as individual contents.

 

Most of us are familiar with this cartridge...

... and we've seen red ones...

... I would not be surprised to see an orange or blue one as well!

Basic black always looks good, as does silver...

Man, I REALLY love your label design for that style of cartridge!  The way it labels, surrounds and highlights buttons is unique.  Is that downloadable for others to use?

I finally got around to carving up an old case, as I was never happy with the quality of the 3d printed one I had mine in before.

@pixelpedant  They say imitation is the highest form of flattery.  Well sir, I like how you labeled your FinalGROM's SD card.  It added a little touch of class, so I decided to copy you!

Nice!  Yeah, after I did the cartridge label, I decided it was kind of silly to have half of some random SD card manufacturer's label as one of the major aesthetic features  of my cart. 

 

Another fun option for the card label would be "Solid State Software" I figure.  Maybe with just "software" visible where the card projects out from the case.

I remember in the very early 90's, the fist TI I got, I and my sons, got a hold of some kind of Radio Shack module, I believe and tried to plug it several times into the TI console port. It never worked after a few times of that. We thought they were usable in all computers, found out the hard way for sure. Not trying to change the thread subject, just hit a memory spot with Airshacks picture.😄

Conversely, I swear if I push just a little harder, Space Harrier will work on my TI-99.  Someone port this game, before I do something drastic.
