  1. Here is something... do you know how it's related to the TI?
  2. Yep, this is going to be a work along (with you) project! So far what you see is what we have for the front cover. Let make a cool retro-style TI-99/4A catalog with things available today. So, we need some graphics and ideas for the empty space below... anything you would like to see added to the cover?

    3D Images

    Now for something truly "timely", three images from the NASA Perseverance Rover newly landed on the planet Mars!
  4. This thread will be for "anything & everything" that does not fit into a defining space. If can be a 'one off', an 'off topic', a photo, cartoon, comment or whatever. If it's interesting enough to you, that you'd like to share, GO FOR IT! 👍 Here is a little something to get the ball rolling... Calendar 3-21.zip
  5. Oh, here is the teaser video I made for it last year, it intentionally does not show all the good parts... cause I want you to find them yourself!
  6. Here is a NEW game that took a few years to develop, that was released last Christmas. I'd like to upload the PDF manual shown above, by this site will not allow me to upload a 12.6 megabyte file. Sorry. Anyway the game can be played in Classic 99 or put onto a FlashROM or FinalGROM. ENK8.bin
  7. Thanks, I've spent a few years on it. Thanks. Yes, it's all internal inside the console... and I can still use the TI keyboard as well.
  8. 4 days zero downloads. I dunno if no one likes the game, or if you all already have it. I guess I'll have to pick out another one...
  9. Actually, all you would need to do it cut and paste it into Classic 99 and then save it to the TI. Post a BASIC program and I'll make a quick video showing you how easy it is.
  10. I noticed the video in message #1 was 6 years old and no longer available (deleted), so I decided to update with the latest photo of my system.

    Mega Cartridge?

    Well, Defender, Q*Bert, Popeye and River Raid needed a little help. When I got them their labels were totatal trash, so I had to remake the labels. Defender was a little more difficult as I needed to buy special silver cardstock to print the image on.
  12. No need for apologies. Sadly new copies are no longer available of that game, but every once in a while a used copy comes up for sale. I suck at the game personally, but because of it's uniqueness and total awesomeness it's the only boxed game I've ever wanted to have. Tursi is one of the TI greats to be sure, and a great guy too.
  13. Hey guys, should I make a promotional video for this section of ATARI.IO once we get something to look at?
  14. No kidding! There can be a lot of "issues" for a Newbie when it comes to getting a beige unit. The worst problem is the keyboard itself, most of those units have a Mitsumi (membrane) keyboard that self-destructs over time. Not being able to run third-part cartridges can be another issue with a good portion of them, so I steer all newbies to the black and silver version that says 1981 on the screen. It took me eight freaking years to FINALLY locate a non-Mitsumi in good condition that would also work with non-GROM cartridges. I'm now using it as my "portable system". Yes, portable, I've been known to take my TI with me when I go places. 😄
  15. You know it's a "Classic" when it takes a 9v battery! 😜
  16. You've got some really good ideas there @RickR! All five of those bullet points get a 👍! If you could take on a couple of those, it would be awesome. I also like @Marco1019's idea of emulation under the Mac platform, unfortunately I have no Apple products and will not be of any help there. I've heard of something called Wine, that may be of use integrating some Windows only items, but don't know. @Justin is right on the mark when it comes to this being a friendly place, in fact it's the major reason I'm here. 🙂 If we all chip in and spread the word, I think it'll build things up quicker. No one person can do it all, and some may not like hanging out at a place where one person dominates everything. The more the merrier is one of the major goals right? Yes, again I think @RickR has a valid point, especially as we are starting out, keeping it simple and fun. Later as more come on board if they want, more in-depth topics will probably just come about. Rick, would you be willing to start a thread something like, "A Beginners Guide to Getting into the TI?" You've shown you have a firm grasp on the entry level aspects. If you want, I'd be willing to make some support videos for your posts. A month on each game sounds good, maybe even a poll letting users pick between some choices for the person who decides to take on that role? Letting users volunteer for month might also be an option that will let others feel more involved.
  17. Nice! I like seeing things restored, especially when finished. I had a friend, who has since passed away, who picked up an old used game at a thrift store a few years ago and man that thing looked like garbage to me. But the first thing he did was disassemble the case and stick it in the dishwasher. After that he spent a few days with a bottle of scratch remover and some rags, after that he had me make him up some labels. When it was done it looked brand new... unless you got up real close and inspected it.

    Mega Cartridge?

    Well that's the problem, from what I've been told they are all 'common cartridges' with little to no value, so selling them would be like giving them away for less than what I paid, and keeping them will be out of the question when I downsize.
  19. If you want this new area to grow, we'll need to use it. So, to that end, what would you guys like to see here?

    Mega Cartridge?

    I was just the other way around. I got a bunch of cartridges first, then got the AtariMax. Now I'm stuck with a buch of cartridges I never use.
  21. Over the past few years there have been some really amazing new 'homebrew' games and some impressive ports. The question arises, where does one start when showcasing so many cool games? Well, I couldn't answer that question, so I closed my eyes and picked one. So, here we go... PENGO - Yes, Pengo, not a cheap copy or imitation, but a pretty accurate port of the Sega blockbuster. Give it a shot, and tell us what you think! In the future all of the "goodies" appearing in this thread will be indexed for easy perusal and downloading, but in many cases the physical file will be in this thread. EDIT - Please note, you'll have to be signed in for the download to be available. PENGO.bin
  22. Thank you. I'll not let it go to waste! I have most of Tuesday & Wednesday off next week, so I'll "start construction" then. It's going to be fun!
