got these games for download?

Recommended Posts

I running out of games to put on ti99resources.wordpress.com/ . my imposed rule is that ALL software must have a corresponding manual or some form of useful documentation.  

I usually find software but no manuals, but here is a list of manuals I have found no software. I think most are ASD&D which were mostly tapes. if you got a .wav file that be OK.

here is the list of manuals with no software:

3-D bowling

bomb squad

Dow-4 gazelle flight simulator (I swear I once saw a copy of this software but can't find it now)

interceptor

kong

laser shield

par fore golf

quest for the keys

stone age

TI asteroids

Avalon Hill Galaxy (also though I once saw a copy of the software someplace as well as the next two)

up periscope

War at sea

I know my search abilities aren't perfect so some of these may be in plain site, that's OK for pointing that out in that case.

 

PS

if looking over the game list on list-of-games and you know of some game that does have a manual that isn't on the list, please post game/manual here too.

 

thanks, HLO

Here's a version of Dow-4 modified to run via disk, per the directions in the manual.  Note that this must be run from TI BASIC via

 

CALL FILES(1)

OLD DSK1.DOW4

RUN

 

 

DOW4.dsk

Did you check to see if these were in the TI Gamebase? @OX.did a great job of finding a lot of the more obscure titles to include in it.

I pulled off what I could find on his site, but that doesn't mean i may has missed something. and  @OX. does have a great game site.

 

correction, I was thinking of another site TI game shelf. what's the link to the TI gamebase (i need to add it to TI99resources anyway).

I believe I’ve got all of the above listed games except for war at sea. Help me out and post the publishers to help me dig them out of my archives. I’ll start uploading some tomorrow morning. 
I’m STILL looking for a complete PSYBORG by TImagination!

You spelled the first program name incorrectly... it was ASTEROIDS... I should know as I was the programmer for the game. Hi... Rick Rothstein here. I just stopped by to reminisce a little and saw this thread. It is nice to see people are still appreciating the programs we (FFF Software) created. You are still appreciating them, right?😉

happy to have had your attention! ...Ciro here. I sent you a pair of DM months ago but unfortunately without get a reply 😛
of course you're right, Lol...ASTEROIDS.  In my defense I can only tell you that I actually only reported the title that I found a few posts above 😛

 

Instead, as an anecdote of my life, I can tell you that for me and other friends here in Italy, when we were kids, that FFF game among us, we always called it AsTIroids to distinguish it from the other (many) games that had the title Asteroids classic 😛 So at least among us we didn't always have to specify that we meant Asteroids from FFF ahah. It all started when one of us read it out loud. I realize that after all these years I probably have this part of dyslexia left. And only recently i discovered that existed a real AsTIroids game and that one is not for FFF, but we didn't know that at the time (Just a little historical story from my life ;)

 

BTW, of course! I still appreciate the FFF software things! it's a nice historical part to safeguard :) I still have to publish them on my site, for now there are only the manuals in my DB... (Hope you liked anyway the pages i dedicated to them).
I think I found Shuttle Command but I'm not sure I still have a right copy of your Asteroids.

 

in addition, have you also news about the other people mentioned in your manuals as FFF stuff?
- Frank della Rossa for the graphic;
- Flavian Stellerine for the docs;

many thanks :)
