  1. Some of you TI'ers out there know about a guy that goes by the name "blackbox" online. He scans LOTS of TI manuals and documentation and saves them in .TIFF format for people to do with as they please. Well, one of the fastest and easiest ways to convert them into a combined .PDF is to use a program by HCH Software called << Pixillon Image Converter >>. This short little video clip shows how fast and easy it is to use.
  2. If the BBS is not down, use the TELNET program that comes with the TIPI and use the address: HEATWAVE.DDNS.NET. For the port number use 9640.
  3. I understand, I use my multicart for most things too, but every once in a while a REALLY COOL game comes down the pike that begs for it's own cartridge. The last one I made might be familiar to you...
  4. Bummer... but you could take your sidecar TIPI with you and use it in the evening! 😇 I took my "portable TI" on vacation with me last year, as seen below...
  5. Two VERY worthy mods. The original fan almost makes one feel like they are on the flight line of a military base.
  6. Please keep us up-to-date on your project. I suck with gamepads, but I'm thinking my portable system would enjoy using one... especially if your next game makes use of it.
  7. That will be NEXT MONTHS! Stay tuned! 🙂
  8. No, not really, which is why I took that video down. That video was around 4 1/2 years old and predated the TIPI. I did not feel comfortable promoting it any longer now that there is something much, much better with more functions and less expensive to implement.
  9. Naw. The main reason I got that phone was because it was cheap ($5.00) and I could use it with my acoustical modem. That phone had a funky proprietary connector so I had to add a couple of RJ-11 jacks to the cable. The thing was, that phone would NEVER ring, which never bothered me much because line 1 was the main house line and the other phones on it would ring and I would just press LINE 1 and pickup the phone. I would only press LINE 2 when I wanted to call the bulletin boards. I always assumed the lights, hold button and ringing features were controlled some Bell System box I didn't h
  10. Okay I finally found one... This is me in 1985 with an Atari 5200 display unit I later cannibalized for TI-99/4A use. I used the unit above to make the hutch with the 19" monitor for my TI-99/4A in 1987
  11. This one is kind of a disconnect, the outfit don't match the music, and I do like the song!
  12. I'll have to see if I can find something to post in this section. I love topic!
  13. NEED MORE INPUT! (Photos of TI systems)
  14. 😜 You know what I mean... Have you ever liked an old or new video game so much that you made a fancy manual for it, a keyboard strip, and even a cartridge label for the game and then burned a chip for it so it could reside in it's very own cartridge?
  15. Sure, that qualifies. Let's open it up to anything that has a video game or computer (70's-80's) in it, either on screen of the unit itself.
  16. Oh, by the way, the booklet prints up nicely...
  17. Sure, no problem... unless you are trying to use it in a QI Version 2.2 late model TI.
  18. There is a really nice game that has decent graphics, plays well and does not fit the "standard" first person shooter genre, but is actually quite fun to play... if you have more than 10 minutes to spare. What is that game? Well, it's... SUBMARINE COMMANDER Below you will find the PDF files for the documentation and a keyboard strip in PDF format. To download the program in .BIN format for the FinalGROM or FlashROM just... << CLICK HERE >> Submarine Commander (Revised 2).pdf Strip - Submarine Commander.pdf
  19. The music may not be to everyone's taste, but it has a video game in it...
  20. You made me work to see that one. At first all I could see was... So with a little "switch", I was finally able to view it... VPN's are wonderful!
