Classic99 won't load ROMs


Recommended Posts

I've been trying to get into TI-99/4A emulation and the emulator I had the most success with was Classic99.  However, when I try to start a game from LaunchBox, it starts the emulator without loading the game.  The TI splash screen comes up but when I press a key to continue, it only gives me the option of using TI BASIC, as if there were no ROM loaded.  I checked the ROMs and they work fine when I load them from within Classic99.  I tried fiddling with quotation mark and other things, read over the documentation, googled and found nothing.  I'm assuming there's a default command line parameter I need.  Can anyone advise me on what to do?

What i ended up doing because i wanted to play parsec.  I tried classic99 but i never could get fullscreen quite right.

i download latest separate version of Mess separate from Mame.   then just wrote a batch file and have launchbox running that.



cd\users\brandon\retro emulators\mess

mess64.exe ti99_4a -cart parsec -peb:slot3 speech


Never could get running in new version of mame, i still cant get my head around mess bios folder structure.  all the required bios files just in roms directory.

know thats probably not the proper way but whatever works
