At least I have also seen original Thorn-Emi cartridges for TI99 of the Submarine Commander and River Rescue but I consider them as prototype and very rare, maybe the only one copy I ever seen around internet. Them was also a kind of sidecar cartridges (connecting in the expansion port of the TI99 and not in the standard cartridge slot).

there is also this additional thread in AA you can read:

More forgotten knowledge.

Let's do a double game again (similar like Frogger / TI-Toad in May 2017)

 

I cannot believe that we did not do a Car Wars competition before, it was one of my first modules we had as a kid.

 

 

This time from one war to the other war:

 

1. Car Wars (PHM 3054) and @Compucar (German clone of Car Wars, but the cars add dots as well)

 

2. Score. We count the Car Wars score first as highest score   and @compu-car as second competition for fun.

    (Highest on Car Wars was 121,000)

 

3. Files:

    Disk version: CAR.dsk

    (see instructions below how to load the files)

 

    Finalgrom Car Wars:phm3054G.BIN

 

    Finalgrom: (maybe someone can make a .bin version)

 

 

2. Editor/Assembler module

    1. TI-BASIC  -- OLD DSK1.GROMLOAD

        (after the 3 files are loaded)  enter "CARWARS"  

        then in the menu option 3.

 

3. Editor/Assembler module option 3 - Load and Run.

    DSK1.@COMPU-CAR

    once loaded press enter

    type "COMPO"  to start the game.

  • OLD CS1 changed the title to High Score Competition (October: Car Wars & Compu-Car)

When I gave it a try, I remembered that back in the 80s I learned a kind of "brake melody" that brings you safely through the first screen. That is, when I started to remember the first lane switches, that long buried "melody" emerged from a dusty part of my brain, and I managed to finish the screen.

 

Edit: Not a "brake melody" but a "squealing tire melody".
