At our last zoomer, one of the participants was sharing their screen. There was noticeable 'tears' in the Parsec demo screen. It looked like the video got behind, and some process said the heck with it and synced to where the video should be. I was curious how that would look on my video. 99/4a standard NTSC - going in to an LCD monitor via RCA cables. I do not get any tearing. But, standing back and looking at the whole screen, rather than focusing on any one thing - and especially at the ground - you can tell, it's not scrolling pixel by pixel, but it looks to be scrolling at a steady three to six pixels at a time.

This Sunday's event was very enlightening. Much discussion about TI's unreleased products, and even some cards that weren't meant to be products.

Other discussions where on MICE in the TI world, it started with the Mechatronics mouse that @arcadeshopper managed to wear out from use!

Later Mike Maksimik released the Asgard Mouse (serial) and Myarc released a mouse (using the 9938) to go with MyArt.

Mike also created MIDIMaster to hook up synthesizers.

 

This led to talk of early sound cards (PC) being sold to gamers for not only sound, but to hook up things like joysticks. Related to that, I've been reading up on the Atari ST line, which includes MIDI built in. In addition to it's original purpose, people used them to create small networks for co-op games. They were also used by Sierra in games like Kings Quest. So, if it found a MT-32 hooked to the system, at certain parts / events you MT-32 would start playing music.

 

We have MIDIMaster, now all we need is a game to take advantage of it! 😃 We also have the SID-Blaster that I don't think any game is taking advantage of.

 

These ramblings are kind of a new thing, if any part makes someone anxious, please PM me and I'll work out a fix.

As my 2022 PDF is only valid for the rest of 2022 ( go figure ), I have provided a more dynamic solution. 

 

Changed post #1 to move the details onto my page at: TI-99/4A Zoom Pandemic Club | Jedimatt42

 

This page features a visual calendar, that should respect your individual browser timezones.

This Sunday at 3pm Pacific, 6pm Eastern, you can view in your own timezone here: https://jedimatt42.com/4a/zoom

 

I'd be appreciative if anyone can corroborate that it shows the time in the calendar at the bottom of the page in your browser's local time. (Anyone but those of us already in Pacific time.)

The times shown in the calendar are Pacific times. The comment at the bottom of the calendar says, “Events shown in time zone: Pacific Time - Los Angeles”.

Thanks! I had done some browser header hacking to pretend to be in eastern and thought that worked, but maybe that header isn't normally set by a browser... I'll try again. Trying to be inclusive. :)
