Here's a piece of TI-99/4A unobtanium: a genuine factory repair tech power-up tested.

Now this gadget on Ebay might make a VERY interesting auction to watch!

No, you are not doing anything wrong.  Some programs like TI-BASE simply do not work in the TIPI's FIAD environment.  At this point in time DM2K does not play well with the TIPI, and I have no clue if/when Fred will update it.  Force Command seems to be the only viable method so far, but I'll admit it can get tedious and time consuming to use on multiple files (unless there is something I don't know about, which is very possible).

 

 

Just looking into that right now actually... yes, having to manually copy all 40 files in the TI-BASE directory seems tedious.  When copying files to TIPI using the web page, it coverts SETUP/C into "SETUP¯C" on the PI which translates to "SETUP  C" on the TI as viewed through DM2K - which of course crashes the software.  When I look at the file using mc on the PI - seems like the data is there.  But file name conversations are all over the map.

Oh yeah! I run across things like that from time to time too.  My most memorable one was years ago when I still used Telco and copied it from my PC to TI.  Ugh!

With the decent sized user base of TIPI users now, my hope is to see an upgraded DM2K or even a dedicated program come onto the scene.  There would sure be a lot of happy campers, including the two of us for sure.

don't you have tibase as a disk image? If so just upload that disk image (DSK OR TIDISK) to the TIPI drive and it will unpack itself?
