TIPI is an interface which implements a Raspberry Pi to provide networking ability and file storage for your TI-994/A computer. I helped conceive this project, but had little to do with what it turned into.
I have written some C programs that run on the TI using TIPI for networking, and have created some web-based programs and games which are noted below:
TIPI programs Below are programs created for the TIPI project.
CHATTI is a TIPI-based chat program/instant messenger where you can chat with other users of myti99.com, right from your TI.
You can load CHATTI right from your TI in console BASIC by entering:
To log into CHATTI, enter the following information:
You can press BEGIN to re-enter your account info on any other screen.
Use BACK to nagivate back out of a screen to the previous one.
To scroll between pages: FCTN-E (up arrow) and FCTN-X (down arrow)
You can also download the files and save them to your TIPI: CHATTI CHATTJ
ROCK PAPER SCISSORS
This is a simple program to demonstrate a very simple game in TI BASIC that uses TIPI and the TIPI Netvariables extension.
Check it out here.
This is a beta version of CHESS that uses TIPI to allow for network play. It is still missing some features, but is under active development.
TIPI CHESS uses the same engine as the web version mentioned below, so you can play matches using either one.
I'd appreciate any feedback regarding bugs or issues you come across, and of course - I'd love to hear your suggestions!

This is a game I put together along with an API on MYTI99.com which allows for high scores to be synced there. This way everyone's high scores are visible on your console.
ATTN programmers: Adding this support to a game is quite easy and requires only a couple of calls to fetch high scores, and to submit scores to the server. Currently it requires having first logged into myti99.com, so SNEK has a login page for this. I may remove this requirement so that it'd be even easier for anyone to add this score-syncing to their own games - it'd just be a matter of registering your game with myti99.com and receiving an app GUID so that the API will accept new score submissions from your game, and allow for reading them back for display within your game. If you are interested, Please contact me and I'll share the necessary info.

Chess for the TI on the web
01/31/16 - I have released the first version of Chess, which you can play agains others on the web with your TI. Once I heard about Stuart Conner's web browser, I knew I had to try to make some cool games for it. Chess is my first one and I have a few ideas for others. This version of chess is still in development, and may have bugs. Please let me know if you find any.
I'd also like to point out that as of right now:
To play Chess for the TI on the web, you must have the following:
To play chess:
Once you have registered for a MyTI99.com account, go to this address on your TI console: www.myti99.com
From there you'll be able to browse for open games, or create one yourself. You can play up to 5 simultaneous matches.
You can save this URL to your favorites for future retrieval. The browser doesn't support text input at this time, and does not (yet) support cookies.
This makes "logging in" a little less secure than a traditional system, and you must log in by adding your
screen name to the URL. For example screen name: TI99FAN you would enter this into the browser:
You can then use your PIN to complete the login process via the PIN pad by clicking on the numbers.
You can also enter all of this information on the URL. For example if your PIN was 1234:
This will log all the way in and bypass the tedious PIN pad.
UPDATE: Stuart's browser v9 and greater supports text input, and I have created a login page on myti99.com
I will continue to post updates as requested.
