FlashROM 99 Compatible Files 

Last update: 02/13/2021



There is a link to a rather large starter collection of files OFF-SITE at WHTECH, the files were compiled by the creator of the FlashROM99 . For these files, please << CLICK HERE >>, it's easy to overlook.


If you are running a TI without a 32K memory upgrade in one it's various forms, you'll probably want to download the nice 'Starter Pack' compiled by Atari Age user 00WRex. It's available << in message #12 of this thread >>.


There are lots of files for the FlashROM 99, and it's very easy to lose track of all the programs! If there is something you've not been able to find (like a Rasmus game) be sure to check the starter packs!


There is also package for the FinalGROM 99 for that link, << CLICK HERE >>.

I am thinking Fred Karl's ti99-geek.nl Module Creator tool will be handy for transforming any EA5 that is small enough into a bin for the SD card cartridge. It targets 64k eproms, but depending on how he uses the space it may just require truncation. Or maybe Fred would make a 32k option?


With that and the plethora of Grom games that have been converted to EA5, basic games that can be compiled and saved as EA5, and most utilities that are already EA5, converting them to individual cart loaders will make these sdcard cartridges a primary storage device.


I'm waiting on parts to prove this technique, but I encourage anyone with an sdcard cart to explore this and let us know!


This list could get big!

Is there a site like asimov for the Apple // where these things tend to get uploaded? (One of the problems with asimov is that it has just about everything, but you may not know it's there or be able to find it due to 8.3 filenames in an era when that mattered, but that's a problem I intend to work on at some point.)

There's WHTech.com, which is a treasure trove of all things TI. It also contains all sort of cartridge dumps.


And there's a new folder of known good, single file, uninverted images that can also be used for the FlashROM 99.


If some image is not working just let me know and I'll add to the compatibility section on the FR99 homepage.

Are those images for the new FR99 also in a format for TI99Sim by chance? That would be even more cool. (Or perhaps, we need to have FR99 support in TI99Sim? Hmm, I wonder if that's within my ability to accomplish with what I know so far?)

Not quite. All emulators need some sort of meta information on what to do with the raw dump data, and they all use their own format. IIRC TI99/Sim has a command line tool to convert dumps to its own cartridge format.


The FlashROM 99 doesn't use meta information, as it only supports one type of dump. If those files are not palatable to the conversion tool you could try the MAME/MESS cartridges, just one folder up.

Thanks, I thought so but was not sure. For now just collecting useful information as I haven't got a FR99 yet. Although you'll probably find an email from me (I think it was your address I sent to?) when you have the chance. Unless ArcadeShopper does or will soon have what I need sooner? That'd save me shipping. (Which leaves the paying for of course...)

You can also use Classic99 as explained here.

This Classic99 feature is nice! I've been able to capture:



MARS ATTACK ( a basic program I had previously compiled )


After following that procedure, I use your bank inverter utility: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/193163-512k-cartridge-status/page-16?do=findComment&comment=3025762


With your bank inverter, I was easily able to add Stuart's browser, cortex basic, editor assembler II, and fbForth.


Pretty much anyone could do it for the typical EA5 program.

I want to thank whoever put Arcturus in the whtech bin repository. I'd tried version after version only NOT to hear the music I remember. I was starting to think my memory was wrong. Finally, this one had the correct music! And why did I see "Tursi" on the title screen? Is this our Tursi?

There are two versions of Arcturus--the file that most people had seen over the years with one tune, and the version in the physical cartridges with the other tune. Tursi did the conversion work to be able to move the image into cartridge space (part of the cartridge originally lived in the DSR space) and then launch the entire program out of Memory Expansion space.

Haha, yep, that's my sidecar cart image. I dumped it (with autostart disabled - hacked interrupt switch peripheral) with a Mini Memory and cassette recorder, and Tursi helped me fix it to run it out of 32K.


The music you are fond of is "The Picador", which is a Sousa march.

I'd like to post this Bank Test image here as well: BANKTEST.BIN


It's a thorough test for people who built their own carts. It checks every memory location in every bank in an endless loop. If things go right you should see "BANK n: OK" for n = 1, 2, 3, 4, and be able to FCTN-= any time.


If you then bring up the menu you'll see BANK TEST /m, where m is the bank that is currently selected. (Personally I seem to have a talent for bringing up banks 2 and 4, but eventually all numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 will show up.)


@Omega: Maybe you could edit your first post to include or refer to WHTech and this test so that people will find it more easily.

PREDIT80-8.bin (-m@: edited to rename file)


I snagged a cart loader out of the classic99 debugger for PREDITOR configured in 80 column mode, and with CHARA1 embedded, so you get nice lowercase font and a visible cursor.


These should be the default key configurations, or at least it is whatever the PR file in whtech/f18a PREDITOR.dsk had set. With the PRCONFIG, I only changed the the 80 column mode option.

Tried this with EA5 Frogger and it works on Classic99 but not on the FlashROM 99 (just get a blue screen). What am I doing wrong? :)

The classic99 image is an inverted rom and you need to make a non-inverted rom. Grab this tool: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/193163-512k-cartridge-status/page-16?do=findComment&comment=3025762


The 3.bin generally indicates it is an inverted rom. This tool will simply prompt for an input file, and then for an output file, and swap the banks going from inverted to non-inverted or vise versa.


I've found that if I name the non-inverted image __9.bin __8.bin then classic99 will load those too. I think there is a discussion of that over in the classic99 updates thread. Anyway, the FlashRom99 required non-inverted images. So that should do the trick.


(-M@: Edited to correct my 9/8 bin mistake)

The classic99 image is an inverted rom and you need to make a non-inverted rom. Grab this tool: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/193163-512k-cartridge-status/page-16?do=findComment&comment=3025762


Thanks! I just ran it through that tool though and FlashROM 99 doesn't seem to care for it any better than the original.


EDIT: I take that back, it works with my PEB attached :)

Oh, yep, this technique required expansion ram, the cart image being created is just a loader for expansion ram. It's like making a partial 'save state' and bundling it into a cartridge that restores state. An appropriate feature for an emulator :)

With all the manuals for everything I've made or downloaded that others have made in the past few years, I just noticed, I don't have a PDF of the PREDITOR program.


I didn't see anything on whtech either. There is a limanews review of it, and then the F18A version someone posted.


If you take the disk version, and run PRCONFIG, a manual could be created by taking notes on all of the key presses it asks about changing.
