Unlike Michael Fox, I haven't been able to get permission from TI to distribute their TI-99/4A modules on a web site. They simply have not responded to any of my e-mails.
Isn't it odd that TI module roms are -- or were --among the hardest to find on the WWW? Do you think it's because of their limited number and their original module format? Or is it because of the numerous people who still use the TI today?
I have three TI's in my closet, one of which I bought on eBay for $25. It came with 15 modules. Right now there's a complete system on eBay with 26 cartridges (and a mint condition keyboard) currently at $15.50. How do companies like PC99 expect to sell software copies of modules for $8 a pop?
I don't know about you, but I haven't forgotten the 1982ish thrill of taking home Alpiner from Sears after begging Mom to buy it for $34.95. Today I'm somehow managing to regain some of that excitement by hunting down modules (in file format) that neither Mom nor I could buy or find. It looks like most of these are finally on the WWW. Here's some places I found them:
Let me know if you come across any that aren't on the above pages. Until then, press any key to begin.
