  99er Magazine
Posted by: DavidMichael33 - 07-25-2015, 08:10 PM - Forum: For Sale - Replies (1)

Hello I have a bunch of the 99er magazine, Home Computer Magazine, Micropedium Magazine and a few Enthusiast 99 

I also have 4 TI99's and a floppy disk drive. 

Just wondering if there is a market for this stuff.

Years ago - between 1987 and 1989 - I subscribed to a magazine that contained programs for various computers, Commodore, Apple, and of course TI 99/4A.  I remember typing in these programs line by line.

It would be similar to Compute! in the earlier years.

Anyone remember the magazine?  I've searched around some, but have been unable to find it.

  MainByte 32K16 Hardware Project Question
Posted by: bholcomb007 - 05-28-2015, 04:40 PM - Forum: Hardware - Replies (2)

I was looking through the MainByte site and saw the 32K16 expansion setup and it said to contact a Richard Bell, but unfortunately his email is no defunct.
The project is at:
MainByte 32K16 Hardware Project

Even if he is not selling them anymore, I was hoping that at least the schematic and parts list for the project would be available.

Anyone out there that can help?

  stuck at "press any key to begin"
Posted by: seanlanefuller - 05-21-2015, 10:16 PM - Forum: Hardware - No Replies

I just bought a TI 99/4a on Ebay. It arrived looking beautiful. It was in the original box with all of the original paperwork and wrappings. Everything looks in near mint condition (except the outside of the box which shows some wear).

My problem is that I got it hooked up and the "press any key to begin" screen shows but it doesn't do anything when I press keys.

Any pointers before I crack the case? Are there any common causes for this type of thing? I don't have any cartridges to try or I would do that first.


I at least have a beautiful machine to look at, and the manuals, and I still have my emulator. It just would feel so good to run on the original iron.

  PEB Power Supply redesign
Posted by: bholcomb007 - 05-04-2015, 05:51 PM - Forum: Hardware - Replies (2)

I obtained an old PBE box with the interface card, the 32K Mem Expansion, Disk I/O controller and an RS232 interface card inside. The cards are in good condition, but the power supply board has 2 bad inductors on it and looking over the design, I was thinking of redesigning the Supply board and adding regulators for each of the voltages. Has anyone thought of or done this previously?

Thanks to all in advance!

  Introduction and questions
Posted by: jenorton - 03-14-2015, 04:52 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (1)

Hi folks:

Please forgive if I am posting this in the wrong place.

I am new to 99er.net, but, wanted to introduce myself and get a little information.

My name is Joseph Norton, from Dalton, GA.

I am a blind computer user.

I bought the TI from a friend of mine, since it had a speech synthesizer, and, was interested in what it could do.

This was back in 1984.  I had a lot of fun, eventually invested in the expansion box, disk systems and bought a separate hardware synthesizer.

As the years went by, I had a lot of fun, writing little programs for myself in both TI Basic and Extended Basic, routing most all of my Print statements through "rs232.ba=9600) to go to my Echo speech synthesizer.  I did have a Terminal Emulator II, but, if I wanted speech output in anything other than TI basic, I had to get a hardware synthesizer.

Anyway, years have gone by, My TI quit working one day, but, I had mostly moved on.

Now, I see there are still some folks still using their TI 99's.

Recently, I have been playing around with virtual machines, and, it occurred to me to look for a TI Emulator, as I had once had one working under MAME, I think.

On this very site, I found 2 that I find very interesting.

First, I ran across the Classic 99 emulator.

I found it interesting, because I could run it, go into the TI 99/4A emulation, but, I could print things out to a file, which would be saved on my PC's HD, then, I could view my results with my Windows screen-reader.

However, I noticed that neither of the things I tried could run the text-to-speech functions utilized by the Terminal Emulator II.

I happened to see the Win994A emulator.  It had a lot more of cartridges and disks in a couple zip packages I could use, and, amazingly, text-to-speech works!  The sound doesn't seem as true-to-life, and, the speech is still not quite as good as the real thing, but, I get to play with it again!

I am even looking to try a few educational titles on my 4-year-old and 10-year-old to see what happens.

Anyway, can any of you out there give me some pointers.  For example, does either of these emulators look similar to the original TI 99/4A?  One thing I found interesting, is that, in Classic99, I can change the system to an old TI 99/4--not that I would want to, but, it was fun to look at it, since I'd never experienced it before.

Anyway, I would be interested in hearing about the pros and cons of these and other emulators, as well as any programs I might find useful as a speech user.

This is bringing back a lot of memories.  After all, the TI 99/4A was my first computer I did anything with.

Thanks for any suggestions..
