while i'm still working on stuff here's some XB golden oldies converted to AdvBASIC for the Geneve.

games are:

Awari

chicken plus

civil war

millibornes

othello

star merchant

star trek

stocks

uno+

wumpus

yathzee

tried adding some AdvBASIC features to some and others I just converted with little change.

also included the latest AdvBASIC manual if you want to fiddle with the games some.

enjoy

Well I am one step closer to Geneve PC in software now that I have the Geneve script updated and working correctly - I always liked the swan splash:

on my 1st attempt at Geneve softPC I replaced the Win7 open/close screen with the above picture. It looked really cool. but now with the SSD drive radically speeding up the startup and shutdown the pic isn't seen but a split second anymore. still, it's a cool pic.

WooHoo! I finally got Parsec to run on the Geneve without glitches. It has to run in the Geneve XB environment, which I currently have 7 other cartridge games running in, but it works. For some reason a hand full of cart conversions won't run with MYGPL but have to run with in XB. Below are the arcade games I have working so far.

When I come out with a new MAME roll-up for the Geneve it'll have the Parsec it's not on the current  geneve.zip in https://ti99resources.wordpress.com/emulation/

but will be on the next upload.

also have several games under the heading SKILL. these include the Adventure Int games, which are several, and Tunnels of Doom games. this list will be added to extensively as I continue to convert TI99 XB games to Geneve Advanced BASIC.

Here a list of the Infocom games.

you can get to these list by just typing ARCADE, SKILL or INFOCOM at the main prompt. if you type HELP you get the list of list.

 

And I'm still working on part 2 of Win7 conversion project.

I am not sure what "MYGPL" refers to, but there are different versions of the ROM and interpreter. IIRC, one of them masks the video registers to account for settings that don't play well with the 9938.  I encountered this while testing the 80 column adventure cartridge, and it certainly did nothing for my mood at the time :) 

 

If you have a copy of PLAYE you can try running Parsec and other grom carts from that environment.  I think I posted it in the Geneve OS Dev thread about a year ago.

MYGPL is what I use to run the TI99 converted Carts that you can run as a file on the TI99.

I'll look into the PLAYE. (edit) got it. I'll look at it with some of the XB cart games after work and see if they now work properly.

Added Frogger, Pacman, Pole Position to Arcade and 4A flyer to Skill. 

here are the updated HD files. I will make a full post with docs and everything later to TI99resources.

If you downloaded the original Geneve emulation files from TI99resources just replace the OS7, FDRIVE and GDRIVE with these new files (if you made any changes or saved files to the original files, be sure to copy off before you replace the .HD files.)

NOTE: if you don't know where everything is just type HELP at the main prompt. it will bring up a list of info and other helpful menu files to enter as well as how to execute the APPS and GAMES.

(Part 1) Not all windows settings work. Like still have a windows logo om startup (used hackgnpt) Username still appears (enabled all registry settings),  Taskbar still is there as it takes time to boot.    And in Mame need to press a key (but understood that cannot be turned off in mame? .cc  @mizapf)   I used my own Geneve batch file setups.

 

Still need to test usb mouse and joysticks (usb to db9) and a Floppy Disk (would be nice to have something like flashfloppy usb disks that I use on the real Geneve).
