Re: Patching SmartBasic

There are numerous version of SmartBasic v1.0 available in the Archive at the following link: http://adamarchive.org/archive/Adam/EOS/Programming/ There is one with a Parallel Printer Driver by Wayne Motel included, but I don't recall if all the SB bugs were patched as well. Seeing as SuperBasic Plu...

Re: ADE question

You CAN copy to a DDP Image File on an ADE, you just have to set the File Manager settings accordingly. Another option to copy a 256K DDP would be to copy it to a 320K disk image file or break up the 256K DDP onto 2 - 160K disk image files. Numerous options abound, so let us know how things go.

Re: Multiple ADE in one system

I do not recall ever connecting two ADEs to a system at the same time and really there is no need to do so seeing as the ADE can emulate up to four disk drives at once, for software that supports it, 2 disk drives is the normal. I would assume that it would work, but you would have to enable and dis...

Just another vaporware title... well, unless/until a copy magically appears like Mathemagician's Quest (Math Quest).

Like the ADAM Computer, SmartBasic 1.0 was rushed and a lot of bugs, omissions and oversights were the result... especially the manual. SmartBasic 2.0 made great strid...

Re: Pokes

Here is the POKEs, PEEKs and CALLs list for SmartBASIC 1.0 that I always used. I do not recall if it is complete, but should be very close.

Re: Sprites vs Shapes

You need to get the PDF versions of "The Hackers Guide to ADAM Vol. I & II" with volume II being more SmartBASIC specific. Also, download the disk image of SpritePower by Digital Express. This is a well down sprite creation program using a SmartKEY interface and there is a SmartBASIC 1.0 sprite load...

Re: EOS or CP/M

I don't have enough experience programming for either OS yet (working on it though!) so unfortunately I can't offer a recommendation but I do have a related question: With CP/M and TDOS when you boot you are greeted with a command prompt. What does it mean to boot into EOS or is that something you ...

Re: Super Donkey Kong Jr.

This all depends of what disk or DDP image file that you are using as this Easter Egg input was shortened and then eventually eliminated altogether as a requirement for the 5th screen to work. I never saw any mention of who or whom originally found this Easter Egg as well as who or whom hacked it to...
