Loading standalone disks from BASIC or EXTENDED BASIC

To load other standalone (Disk Only) disks, you can similarly attach disks to DSK1 drive for example, and then run then with following command(s) in caps in BASIC: (a1) OLD "DSK1.NAMEOFPROGRAM" or DSK1.NAMEOFPROGRAM (a2) RUN -or- (b) RUN "DSK1.NAMEOFPROGRAM".

Some games will require other modules such as Extended BASIC (XB) or Editor/Assembler (EA) to load or run, in this case, attach the file to DSK1 and simply run the module, load game either per usual or with disk.filename if asked and if game does not autoload. > SEE DISK MANAGER tab for contents and programs on attached DSK image. >> Disk files listed in the table sections will note requirements.

GAME HELP LIST:
(Special instructions for playing specific games on this setup and GUI)

-- #1 Rules of Thumb --
The Q key, various keys or spacebar are often used for fire button/action, make sure to try keys.
For various action games WITHOUT a keyboard fire button control: Use keyboard ARROW KEYS + click the built in GUI fire button control. Joystick arrows/fire button are implemented on the emulator tray below screen. TIP: Some games work great using one hand with arrow keys with another clicking fire with mouse.

PyjamaramaTo release Wally from his Nightmare he must find the alarm clock and wind it up. Objects are needed to achieve different tasks which will become apparent as the game progresses. In many cases a particular object will be needed in order to collect or use another one to satisfy a certain task. A seemingly impossible action may merely require a different approach or object. To replenish lost energy there are items of food in the house, which will appear singly, and in different locations. Once one has been consumed the next will appear elsewhere, but always in its same location. When your Snooze Energy has run out 3 times, losing 3 lives, you will have to start the game again.

If you have any game tips regarding play, functionality, etc please visit the main page at games.yak.onl and share your knowledge.

To use the interactive command strip commands (functions) above keyboard and to operate the TI-99/4a, you would normally use the FCTN key (as a shift-function selector). On contemporary keyboards, this key would be the ALT key. Ex. ALT + 9 = BACK. OTHERWISE, note symbols on corresponding keys for actions.
