: : Hi,
: : I recently re-installed the TI-BBS on my 99/4A and connected the TI to PC with serial cable. Now I can transfer files from TI to PC. But does that make sense? Can they be used on the emulators? Are these "copies" still usable somehow?
Files such as text files, gif files, data files etc. that can be made use of on a PC can be downloaded to a PC and used. The only problem is that when a file is sent out via the TI, it puts a 128 byte header on it so that other TI machines can decipher it. This leaves you with 2 options - edit out the first 128 bytes of a file, or use software that will send the TI file without the header. The second option is easier!
