If you wanted to try that Commodore emulator I posted a package on the 2.14X thread located at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=402169#402169

@ ttuuxxx, I have tried a few different TI 99/4A emulators that were meant for windows. None of them worked with WINE for me. As for the Commodore emulator, I never owned a Commodore. Besides, picture of a working TI 99/4A and a Commodore emulator running from a laptop wouldn't have the same effect. Also, as a member of the TI OLUG, it just wouldn't be right.

I am going to check out what you were saying with regards to that other TI emulator and editting the rules.mak. I have SDL installed in both my tower and laptop, so there might be an option. I'll let you know what I come up with.

To get it to work - the basic idea is ...
Code:
gcc -I./ -I/usr/include -o TI99 *.c -L/lib -L/usr/lib -lc -lm

(you should probably list out the *.c)

then you will get a bunch of undefined & implicit declaration and multiple definition messages mostly because the #include(s) are not there or they don't match what is expected

these may just require adding the proper includes and tweaking to code to fit with newer structures - updated from the 1994 code.... it may be a lot ... it is doable though... just knock out one error at a time

The problem is that this requires xmess. I have not been able to get that to compile and I don't know if there is either a .pet or .pup for it. However, I am trying to avoid using emulators to run, well, emulators. However, given that xmess uses fewers system resources than wine, I may look for a precompiled .pet or .pup and give it a go. Still, rather run it directly.

Since my last posting, I have been searching for an xmess pet that I can try. I found the old thread for pupmess, however, all the links are dead. Nothing in the repository sites either. Guess I am going to have to learn C/C++ and try to learn how this program is supposed to work, so much for my article. Guess its just a picture of the TI 99/4A itself.

Have you tried the emulator version of puppy yet? That might have something.

Emulator version? I will have to look it up. However, that will have to wait until Saturday. I don't think I will be able to get online again for the next couple days (time constraints).

Again, thank you for your help and suggestions. I do appreciate it. See you online this weekend.


Note: I will check in at facebook before and after work, if only to take care of messages.

Yes it was called Puppy arcade

Puppy Arcade doesn't include an emulator for the TI-99/4A... yet. I forgot whether or not MESS supports it; if it does, that can also be an option.

Edit: It does. I'm not sure what may need to be done to get it working under Puppy (even any SDL versions out there), or how well it does emulate the 99/4A, but it's probably better than the Linux emulators for it I've seen so far.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have to pull out my 99/4A and the speech synthesizer... just to waste time with Parsec. Very Happy

@Mokoto, lucky! I don't have a speech synthesizer. I have to play Parsec without the voice warning me of approaching enemies.

Hmm... never did find out if any of the emulators emulated the speech synthesizer (but then again, I haven't tried any of them). Then again, all I ever did with it was use it for games and make it say various things through Extended BASIC. Very Happy

Yes, several of the TI99/4A emulators purport to support speech synthesis. I am still working on getting TI4Linux to work. However, I can already tell you that it won't be done in time for my company's newsletter. However, I am going to write the source code into a notebook and try to see if I figure it out using a C/C++ reference book. Maybe if I can figure what needs fixing, I can create something pretty impressive. Its worth a try. What's the worst thing I could, rewrite it in either Basic or Cobol? By the time I did that, I'd probably have also attained a certain level of mastery of C/C++.

I think the only way to go as of right now is mess, I've spent tons of ours looking into this for you and really linux/Ti99/4a doesn't have all that much support.
xmess.x11 ti99_4ae <<<--- is the file you need to run the TI emulator on mess,
there's only a couple of pages on google about it[url] http://www.google.com.au/#hl=en&source=hp&q=xmess.x11+ti99_4ae&btnG=Google+Search&meta=&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&fp=829aa73c376e0bf9[/url]
goodluck Smile

Hmmm..... Interesting. I went to a page regarding emulators and read the following:

Quote:
The third contender, TI4Linux, is text-only and needs a lot more work to be useful, though the C source is efficient and quite interesting to read. Despite some quirks, TI99sim is much the best TI emulator for Linux.


So, perhaps, it would be best if I try to work out why I can not get TI99sim to compile and then later look at TI4Linux and see what can be done with it. Thanks ttuuxxx. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention. Gives me some food for thought as I prepare for sleep.

Have a good one. I'll swing by the forum before church.

Oh, feel free to try to look me up on facebook.
