Can I save BASIC programs to the FinalGrom?

Recommended Posts

Remember that you can save and load a TI BASIC or TI EXTENDED BASIC program to and from a cellphone or a computer (alternatives to the cassette recorder).
 

Do you have any examples of what is required to save to a Cellphone? That would really help.

Instructions below. Yes, you apparently have to use a tape recorder (or a substitute). You could go all cross-platform (emulation), and use disks there.

I think converting the compiled program to cartridge format can only be done cross-platform.

Well, the TI-cassette-cables have jacks and some cellphones take one (mine do). I think it's been covered a few times on this forum. Here's one (I hope).

It's not possible to save anything permanent on the FinalGROM from the TI-99/4A. It is cartridge (emulator) and not a storage device.

The Tipi since very complicated.

I only reboot (by unplugging and plugging back up) if it doesn't work..I haven't had to do that in probably a month and only because we had storms.

Someone could easily set it up for you, and you're on your way. Power up, and use disk drives, DSK0 DSK1,DSK2 like normal..put programs in folders on those drives.

Easy weassy

And the help is phenomenal

But does it require a special type of 32K expansion? How can I know If it is compatible with mine?

There are 2 versions of sidecar one requires a 44 pin header on the bus the other includes 32k .

If you're not comfortable setting it up, just have someone build it for you complete and slam bam, done!

I live in Greece. I don't think there are many TI users here to do it for me.

The videos are the place to start. Like greg said, watch those to get a feel of things. This tipi is your ticket to freedom for your computer, well worth the learning curve. Maybe order it completely setup from Greg?

No it has no connector so you would need to either solder on one or use a splitter and adapter to hook up tipi.. best idea is to get the combo board and shelf or sell that 32k

Do you have a direct link for it? The ones I see are out of stock? Also can you manage to send them from within the EU?

Thanks.

I talked to the seller and he says you bought one with a TIPI sidecar plug, and he also sells the sidecar tipi but hes got to assemble one and is pretty busy with another project. That's going to be the cheapest route.. I can ship from the states any time if you want one sooner.

Thanks Greg. So my 32K is compatible after all. I guess I'll wait and get a TiPI. In the meantime, I tried the tape recorder and it works fine after all these years!
