Screen grabs from The Cyc

Skip the text

The images below are taken from screen grabs of The Cyc, information relating to the TI99/4A forming part of a data DVD: "PC99 Suite" from CaDD. The disk, PC99 Suite, is a labour of love with many hours of work, which is continuing to grow as more material is scanned, discovered, purchased, donated....

The Cyc is a collection of pdf documents, together with usable images of virtually all (apart from the latest) modules for the TI99/4A in a PC99/pc99w format, and many disk based programs again in PC99/pc99w format but easily converted for other emulators using Fred Kaal's TI99DIR program.

These images were obtained from a disk dated April 2017 and have been provided here to give a better understanding of what you receive:
Of note is that all written content is reformatted in clear text- often far more legible than the original source material. Later corrections have been made in the appropriate locations (in one case 30 years after original publication) and there is wide cross referencing. Internal document linking will take you directly to the appropriate part of the document. Cross document linking only works in Windows, when the collection location has been identified to the system as drive Y (instructions provided).

The overall index pdf runs to 1875 pages. The DVD includes the complete text from: Micropendium, 99er magazine, Enthusiast 99er, HCM, Smart Programmer, and many other publications. Considerable text from User Group magazines from the UK, the USA, and Australia. A handful of books, especially on Assembler Language.

The Vendor section includes vendor adverts and program documentation.

There is a significant collection of TI documentation including original internal materials such as TI99/7 specs. The Cyc includes all TI program documentation (there may be an odd rarity missing). Module images (for PC99/pc99w) are comprehensive and include 14 Extended Basic versions.

Disk collections include: Amnion disk library 60 disks; TI issued disks (97 disks), Boston Computer Society 123 disks, Chicago group 171 disks, 394 disks from Genie and the Tigercub collection of 600 disks. Disk contents are listed in extensive pdf documents- 1618 pages for Boston, 1735 pages for Chicago and a 4096 page document for the Genie disks. Sometimes screen grabs or running notes are added.

For publications and usergroup magazines, there are often disk files of the printed programs, so now you don't need to key the code in yourself.

The Cyc is part of PC99 Suite, which includes the emulators PC99 for DOS and pc99w for Windows together with supporting windows programs pc99wcfg and aps99wdu.

All Cyc content appears properly licenced/ with permission.

The images show cross referenced links- the images below are just images and you can't click them but with the Cyc you can.
