KirkDCO Posted December 31, 2011 Share Posted December 31, 2011 (edited) Yes, I realize that Classic99 is only really targeted for Windows, but I've been working with it through Wine on a Fedora 15 system as well as a Windows XP instance running in Virtual Box. In general, it works very well. Speech synthesize is not that good in this instance, but everything else is quite good. The problems I've had are: On LINUX, getting some Infocom games, sp. Leather Goddesses of Phobos, running doesn't work. For starters, I cannot access the file system through the DSK1 menu option - it crashes. No problem - I just change the .ini file to have that disk in the right place. (I'm using the Infocom disks from Western Horizons, by the way.) All of the Infocom games I've worked with in this form work fine, but LGoP goes to a green screen and freezes. I get the same result when I try to use this file through MESS, but if I go to the WinXP instance, it runs fine with Classic99. On a Windows XP system (Virtual Box instance) I was trying to get Disk Manager 3.0 in place as a User cartridge by modifying the .ini. I'm able to do the Pole Position example in the manual, but when it comes to Disk Manager 2.0 (or 3.0) it just doesn't work. The ROM file is called dskmg2g.bin, so I add this: [userCart0] name="Disk Manager 2.0" ROM0=G|6000|2000|MODS\dskmg2g.bin The result is that when I choose this cartridge from the menu, there is only the "1 TI BASIC" option to choose from after the title screen. Any tips are appreciated. EDIT: For the Disk Manager carts, I changed the ROM line to this: ROM0=G|6000|4000|MODS\dskmg2g.bin and it works great. Simple memory address issue.
