I'd like to probably get put up as a sticky another category if we can... terminal emulator programs.

 

i.e. Sometihng like this:

Program     Type     Requires            Special Features
-------     ----     ---------           ----------------
Telco       EA/5     Disk, 32K, RS232    ANSI graphics (mono), 40/80
Fast TERM   EA/5     Disk, 32K, RS232


So, please dump all terminal programs that you know about here. :)

TIMXT EA5/FR99 32k, RS232,F18A ANSI Color 80 column

TEII Cartridge 32k, RS232 40 Column

4A Talk XB/EA 32k, RS232 40 Column

Mass XFER EA 32k, RS232 40 column

yeah, Term80 is E/A#5, requires disk, 32k, RS232, and offers 64 or 80 column text modes on a standard 9918A, with optional support for high-speed modem cables (I think Jeff got to 19.2k with his mods) and full color ANSI graphics.

 

TE2, if you want to be complete. ;) Requires TE2 cartridge, RS232.

 

I never used anything else myself!

Here are the ones I remember using and/or testing over the years:

 

TI terminal emulators

4A Talk

Telco 40/80 column, menu driven

Mass Transfer 40 column (multiple versions)

Mass Transfer 80 column (multiple versions, some w/hard drive support)

Triad (terminal emulator, word processor, disk manager)

FastTerm (multiple versions)

Omega Term (online RLE viewer)

Term80

ZT4 (same author as term80)

TIMXT (F18A color ansi support; 38.4K; incomplete)

 

Geneve-specific terminal emulators:

NotMyTerm

MyTerm

Gentri - successor to Triad

PORT - mono and color ansi; 38.4K

Hi, thanks for more data :) so here´s what I have:

 

attachicon.gifTI-99-4A-TOOLs-TELCO-v1.0-beta.pdf

Nice list! Here is what caught my eye...

 

PORT was written by me. ;)

 

Please update Heatwave BBS information to reflect its current DNS? (heatwave.ddns.net port 9640)

 

Please separate "TIMXT" and "Super Mass Transfer". They are now two different programs, even if based on the same code :)

 

I believe Omega Term was written by Travis Watford.

 

NotMyTerm was written by Jim Schroeder

 

MyTerm was written by Mike Riccio. (also add to list)

 

I do not see the 40 or 80 column Mass Transfers listed.

 

CAT3 Genre column seems inconsistent? Need to expand the column to see the information.

A few of us here actually have TE1 cartridges, so it is relatively available (although it is generally rare, as noted). Most of the hard core cartridge completists have one (or more) of them. I should probably extract the GROMs and make an UberGROM image for it (and for each individual TI cartridge out there, for that matter). Another project for my interminable list of projects. . .

Copy that :) so here were are:

 

info: all words in RED need to be confirmed. just my assumptions

thanks

 

FlipTerm BBS is written in c99 and does not require XB (in fact it won't work with an XB cart plugged in, it requires 32k, the Editor/Assembler cart and a Horizon RAMdisk - mandatory. It uses the RAMdisk's startup to boot itself.) ;) Thanks for including it though!

I didn't realize you were listing BBSs too, and I see you don't have Lloyd Galenzoski's BBS for the Ottawa TI Users Group. Many, many years ago (when I was just starting FlipTerm) he sent me the source, and I have that transferred over to my PC. Hopefully he doesn't mind if I share it for the sake of preservation today. :)

 

It's written in assembly, and so requires 32k. I think any loader will work. It looks like it may be incomplete, I'm not sure if it was finished. :)

 

Looks like source for Disk-Aid is on that disk too... I never tried that. :)

 

Anyway, I want to say this was called MiniTalk, but I can't find any evidence of that on the disk.

 

DISK, TOO, Telco/BBS, Lloyd Galenzoski, MiniTalk, 32k, ?, ?, ?, DL, 1987, Ottawa TI Users Group

check :)

 

DL (DownLoadable) means something like "it was not sold in a commercial way". But I am not sure, have to work on that later :)

So "DL" is a little bit problematic in conjunction with the "Rarity", maybe I am going to move all "DL´s" over to the Rarity-column later, overwriting this values.

And there was something concerned to that, in the CAT1, as you see "DSK" and "DISK" there... I have to remember about ;)

 

As such massive changes can done by me just in "some minutes", over ~ 3800 rows/entries at all, but easily by filtering,

I can wait with such actions until I have more data, and more knowledge about the products. (Is there more?) :)

 

But if changed once, I cannot go back, as the Rarities would be lost at this moment.

And I have to find out wehter the "DL" really is true for the concerned entries, so maybe better just to wait.

 

xXx
