Who here has the most "hopped up" TI Console?

Recommended Posts

Call it a contest, call it a display for bragging rights, call it what you will.  But let's see who here has the most "hopped up" or highly modified TI console/keyboard.

 

Some of you have 32K installed, I suspect at least one of you has an internal SAMS equivalent but I'm not positive.  

Some of you have a Tursi or Jedimatt42 keyboard enhancement possibly even an old RAVE model.

F18A's are out there as well?

Do you have any other mods or enhancements like the clock speed mod or something else?

Maybe you have something unique we might all like to copy?

 

Take photos, otherwise it all B.S. 😁

I'll start it off, because I know I'll easily be beat by you "heavy hitters" out there.

 

My TI main system only has two permanent modifications....

The First is a common upgrade, the F18A

The Second is a Tursi design Keyboard interface

That's all, for my showing.  So lets see the good entries now!

That's pretty freaking amazing, probably the winner of a future P-Box contest too, but right now, it's console only.

well I figured since the console was integrated into the unit, so it's a 99/4a with Speech and a PEB all in one then it qualified since I hooked the keyboard and video up to it.

My 64 K RAM in the console pales in comparison. One of the few designs I've seen giving the TI contiguous RAM across the address space, though.

He's missing a TIPI in the system to give WiFI capability...…….

That's an old system,  it does have a TiPi in there too.  I completely forgot about that little gem.

My best TI had

Switch for Turbo Crystal or normal.

Load Interrupt Switch.

Tim 9958 VDP upgrade with 192K VDP RAM.

Son of Board installed for TIM card.

2 Fans inside console to cool it both powered by separate Radio Shack power supply and volume knobs to control fan noise and speeds.

Lastly a CPU Idle switch that would stop processor and freeze until switch was turned on again, I could unplug P-Box or Carts and change things with no problems.

(think this one fried the CPU eventually)
