Mame Ti-99/4A vs Cart Images

Recommended Posts

Anyone have success running any cart images from Mame? Do you have a link to those images? Everyone I have and tried just gives me a message saying that it's an invalid image and an internal error.

All cart images are on our server https://ftp.whtech.com/Cartridges/MAME/

 

MAME uses zip cartridge format and RPK cartridge format, but no bin format.

download the link. it's everything you need to get MAME running with TI-99 including the batch files to attach to cartridges. just add MAME. also check out the section in software under MAME which has links to MAME and some tutorials.

I am enjoying using Mame on Raspberry PI 4.

I run my system using scripts.  It's pretty slick.

Is there a comprehensive document that shows command line information?

I've been using the supplied scripts as templates, however, I want to know more.

in the above download of mine from ti99resources for MAME TI/99 /MESS221/DOCS is a list of docs which includes a MAME document and other useful .txt files. in the MAME doc is a list of the command line also SLOTS, MEDIA and USAGE text.

I figured out you need to add the speech module by adding a PEB first and then add the speech module to the PEB.

Hello, if you want, follow this link, over the tutorial for the installation and configuration of MAME, scrolling the page at the bottom you will also find the software needed :)

http://www.ti99iuc.it/web/index.php?pageid=homepage&artid=196

Help please...I followed the instructions and got this running and everything works fine, EXCEPT.....I can't load .dsk images that I created and use regularly in C99, JS99er and a older version of MESS 140 that came with the Gamebase.   What the hell am I doing wrong? It must be something simple but I can't figure it out.  I have the peb connected, the TI disk controller and 3 drives...but it simply gives me a error  I/O Error 6    

 

I have it set up.   ioport>  PEB

                          ioport peb slot 2> speech

                          ioport peb slot 3> tifdc

                          ioport peb slot tifdc:0 > 525 dd 

                          ioport peb slot tifdc:1 > 525 dd

                          ioport peb slot tifdc:2 > 525 dd

 

What am I doing wrong?

The older MESS 0.140 is, I can say, another piece of software compared to the current MAME 0.225. The only advice I can give you is to upgrade to the recent release.

 

For instance, none of the path specifications will work on MESS 0.140.

Yes, but this is a newer release version that I set up with the instructions and downloads from http://www.ti99iuc.it/web/index.php?pageid=148&artid=196#.X4niCI7Yrrd

Could you post a dsk image that fails with your MAME installation?

Yes, this is my turboforth BLOCKS disk, mounted in dsk1.tfblocks.dsk

This is a DSDD disk, and you tried to read it with a TI FDC. Please use another controller.

These are my choices...what one do you think should work?  controler.thumb.jpg.c57ebb1e728412da13224b530d0ee7f8.jpg

HFDC

BwG

 

and once you upgrade to post 0.220:

DDCC-1

CorComp

Ok, so use HFDC and Bwg?  At the same time?  One in each "slot"?  I am sorry about these questions, I am so confused.  I just don't know what I am doing...learning is fun and frustrating. :)

No, it's just a choice - as with your real TI and PEB. Use HFDC or BwG.

I tried both, and I still get the error...maybe my .dsk file is bad.tried.thumb.jpg.da38defcfb21a9390b370da88b75b262.jpg
