Best Plain Old TI BASIC Games (w/MP3)

Hmmm, OK, will try whether MAME accepts them, but I'll have to convert them to WAV, because MP3 is not supported. (Hence my question about original WAV files.)

Ah, emulation; fair enough.  A quick on-liner with ffmpeg or sox will take care of you.

Successfully loaded the created WAV file for Adventureland in MAME. 🙂  I ran it through Audacity, filtering away some higher frequencies, and pushing up the amplification.

 

May I upload those files on WHTech?

Does Audacity have a command line interface?  All that can be done with sox, too.

Maybe, but I'd like to watch it. You look at a curve and start pondering what kind of filter it could like.

No sweat. 
If this effort brings more “newbie” ti’ers to the fold it was well worth it.

I will be in the process, for my own library, to get these put on a real disk and dsk format. If I get enough, I'll put them somewhere also. But Ill be starting this project in the future, after SNP is done, which I'll also provide to the public..IF I can just get past DSR, automation may have just provided a breakthrough on that front. Sad..I'm not smart enough to get that figured out... but thank you for these mp3s.

Console Basic Collection [and Extended Basic Collection] from the zip file from jrhodes.

 

Well, that's a lot of programs for TI and Extended BASIC!!!  My rough estimate says it will take, oh, a million years to load all these BASIC programs from "tape."

 

When you test these audio files, do you play and use them or just check that they load okay.  Do you have a favorite or two in this collection?

I must admit I did not test all of them, however, I made a point to load the largest ones in each collection to make sure they load AND run. They did.

When i made those collections, i tested each program for a good 5-6 minutes each on classic99, followed by 10-20 minutes each on real hardware.

Hi all.  Regarding "Dodger" .... this is one game I've tried a few times, to get "right" and never been happy with my results.  It was a game I had with my original TI99 back in 1985 or so.  It was written by a company called Firefly and was one of the best tape games I had.  With lockdown forcing me inside more, I've had another go at getting it just like the original.  This one is hopefully as responsive as the original, and has graphics very similar according to my memory.  With no files existing of the majority of Firefly's games, I've been trying to make them myself lol!

 

This game uses Extended Basic but doesn't need the 32K memory expansion.  With each new level the game gets faster, and after level 1, more traffic and monsters appear.  I can get to level 3.
