First, I want anyone reading this to know that I'm not new to the TI-99/4A (been programming it for 16 years -- I'm 20!) and I'm not new to emulation either (I've tried emulators for C64, NES, SNES, GENESIS, N64, Playstation, Gameboy, arcade -- MAME -- and others...)
I installed the 3 MB V9t9run pack that I downloaded a few weeks ago, did everything the readme's and install info files said, and what happens is this :
V9t9run executes, I then select a module ini file, I click on run, I get the v9t9 text screen where I can select a module, I select Super XB or SuperCart and then I get a black screen that I can only get out of by pressing my "Windows" key to get back to windows and kill v9t9.
Last summer, I played around with an older version of v9t9 and v9t9run and I did get v9t9 to run a few times, but I often got a black screen. I don't know how I got the emulator to work those first few times...
I have a P233 MMX, with 64 MB of RAM, a Sound Blaster 16 (not a clone), Win98.
If all else fails, could someone please send me their modules.inf file if the emu works, and please tell me if you do something special?
I really want to play with the TI-99/4a again : I had 2 of these (long story) and they both don't work very well, for example they lock up after some time, and we all know that Tunnels of Doom makes for REALLY long games!!!
