Yes, you are right. I use an older version of classic99 from 2011. It would be nice to get an hint about a newer version w/o the keyboard bug.

I tested the game also with win994a. And it runs fine on my original TI and ramdisk. With 5 1/4'' disks patience is needed.

 

Files _H are ascii header files for the images. File _H just give number of pixel and filename of pattern table (_P) and color table (_C) of the image.

Should be no problem to view it with TI99Dir or modify it with any ascii editor.

@goldmarty you can always get the latest classic99 at http://www.harmlesslion.com/cgi-bin/onesoft.cgi?1

There is about 15 mins playtime in this version corresponding to the ARCADA part of the solution.

I believe the complete game will come in parts. At least I hope so!

Same place as it was in 2011! :) http://harmlesslion.com/software/classic99

 

I don't move things around very often. ;) I did move the source to github though...

Wow, this looks good on the TI-99/4A, very cool!

I have only seen 2 screens so far!

 

But going to play this with my kid and is just in time as

we just read these interactive books:

https://archive.org/details/tibook_micro-adventure-one-space-attack

* (and typing the TI-99/4A programs to solve the encrypted messages, codes, etc.)

   (and this site related to it is also interesting with a build in emulator:

   https://auri-microadventure.azurewebsites.net/)

 

It comes in time to visualise the space ship!

 

(for reference only i did a search on Space Quest I as well to see how it looked on the PC):

* Dosbox - https://classicreload.com/space-quest-i-roger-wilco-in-the-sarien-encounter.html

* (is this PC?) http://sarien.net/spacequest
