Any luck with this .ZIP file for disk read?

Have you tried only loading one disk?

I put DSK side 1 in DSK1 and DSK side 2 in DSK 2 using classic99. I was able to ruin and play OLD DSK1.DUNGEON and OLD DSK2.DUNGEON - they appeared to be the same game. In TI99DIR I took a look at both dsk files and they contain the same contents. Only of differing sizes. I don't know if they can be merged and produce a different result. Dungeon was like playing tunnels of doom in text mode only. That's about all I have to say about that.

Having this book + cassette as a kid, I was hoping I could load this in js99er. No luck. It treats it as one file.

Is there a Win32 app TI emulator that will work better? I wanna try this out.

 

You need to unzip the file. JS99er can open disk images or zip files of individual files, but it cannot open zip files of disk images.

I did unzip the file, which gave me a .DSK file, but JS99er didn't know what to do with it when I mounted it on DSK1. It came out as 1 big file instead of a bunch of individual files. ALso tried the pc99 version to no avail.

I don't know, it's working fine for me to open the individual disk images in js99er.

On JS99er, Press "Software" and choose "TI Extended Basic"

 

Then press "Open Disk/File" and point to the 1st .DSK-File

Then click "Insert to a drive" and insert to DSK1.

Same for the 2nd file/DSK2

 

Press "2" to go to Extended Basic

Enter OLD DSK1.GUNNER

RUN

 

Works for me.
