  Realms of Antiquity Collector's Edition
Posted by: adamantyr - 08-22-2021, 01:35 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (2)

Hi all,

In December of 2020, I released Realms of Antiquity for the TI-99/4a through ArcadeShopper's storefront, and a few months later, on the Steam and Itch.IO platforms.

I also marketed a collector's edition which included the game ready to play on hardware. I currently have a Kickstarter running to produce another run of collector's editions, and I want to make certain no 99'er misses out on it.

Please note the system requirements: you need a SAMS to play the game, either a side car or a PEB card will do. These can be purchased through ArcadeShopper.

8 days to go, and currently 59% funded!

  Playing Popeye & Games List
Posted by: jonesypeter - 07-14-2020, 03:56 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (2)


I'm new to the TI99/4A.  My home computer as a child was the ZX-Spectrum.

Couple of questions if I may:

Is there a site which shows screenshots of TI Games?  Rather like Lemon64 or similar?

I'm trying to play Popeye via Classic 99.  I have downloaded the TOSEC archive from archive.org and there is a part one file and a part two file.

Popeye (1984)(Parker Brothers)(Part 1 of 2).g
Popeye (1984)(Parker Brothers)(Part 2 of 2).c

Finally.  How do I report spam?  The report button under posts does not seem to be working.

Many thanks

Great Britain

  Problem with Cartridge Image not fitting on TV screen
Posted by: JStoller - 05-24-2020, 11:49 AM - Forum: Software - No Replies

I was finally able to hook up my TI 99/4A to a new flat screen TV, but some of the images from math games like Alien Addition don't fit perfectly on the TV screen (e.g., one equation only shows partially on the left side of the TV screen).  Any advice on how to correct?

  Viditel / Presetel prototype cartridge
Posted by: hofster - 04-13-2020, 03:26 PM - Forum: Software - No Replies


I found a prototype cartridge for the TI-99.
The cartridge is labelled Viditel although it has programs called Prestel and Bildshirmtext on it too (same thing in different languages perhaps).

I wonder if anyone has any more knowledge about this little gem.

I posted my findings here:

  Plato - Bad Chemistry Disks
Posted by: GullibleRaspberry9 - 11-25-2019, 12:11 AM - Forum: Software - No Replies

I have been going through the Plato High School Science - Chemistry course with my son, be we are hitting some bad disks.  

I have both the Mess emulator and the v9t9 emulator able to run the Plato Rom with the TIDisks downloaded from either whtech ftp or 99er download database.

I have never had any issues running any of the disks for many different subjects: High School writing, math, biology, physics.   However, in the Chemistry subject disks: 7, 9, 10, 12, 14 all load, get past the Plato welcome screen and to the course Menu screen.  It will say for example, "Menu 1. Chemical Reactions 1 Tutorial 2. Additional Studies 3. Select another Diskette.

When I choose 1 for the tutorial,  the disk starts reading but then just freezes.  The screen doesn't change, and the white message on the bottom just says: "Type the number of the" . 

I am hoping someone has any idea to help us along so we can finish this great course for Chemistry.  My son loves this style of learning.

Thank you for any suggestions
