Re: Coding on the CV

Hi Milli, I'll try to explain Colecovision sound programming as best as I can. The three best resources I have found are: 1. "Colecovision Coding Guide" by Daniel Bienvenu starting at page 198. Good documentation on sound structure. 2. "Official Colecovision Programming Manual" section 7 Sound Gener...

Re: Need help with testing joysticks

I know this is CP/M but you might want to review the POLLER and READ AND DEBOUNCE GAME CONTROLLER ($E206) subroutine in the EOS 5 source code to see how the game controllers are read and decoded in EOS.

Re: Copy.Asm Source code

What assembler do you use for CP/M? Also is there a disassembler you would recommend?

A while ago when the http://theadamresource.com went dark I saved all the TWWMCA articles I could find and put them in a PDF.

Re: MIB2 low-level access

This is one aspect of the ADAM which I find annoying: No standard serial or parallel port. How about using the Adamnet network? Any documents on how to access and decode the signals? There is documentation for ADAMNet in the ADAM Technical Manual which you can probably find on http://adamarchive.org/

I thought the MIB was Eve/Orphanware compatible
I don't see how it could be if the EVE/Orphanware use the 8251 and those ports.

Re: MIB2 low-level access

Does that code really work with the MIB2? I ask because the MIB2 and MIB3 do not use an 8251 USART they use a Phillips SCN2681 DUART and when I was dissembling ADAMLink V it uses ports 10H-1DH to communicate with the SCN2681 (see attached port list) when in MIB2/MIB3 mode.

Re: Turbo Pascal issue under CP/M

Did you ever get it to run? I typed in the same code and it compiled and ran fine with the latest disk you uploaded.

Re: Adam Image Manager

Found the source of the corruption I think. I'll upload AIM 1.1.1 soon for testing. The software should handle both interleaved (DSK) and non-interleaved images (DDP).

Re: Adam Image Manager

The EOSWORK.DSK image is a non-standard EOS image and why Image Manager throws the error. The directory structure for an EOS disk should have at least 3 entries besides the volume label; BOOT, DIRECTORY and BLOCKS LEFT. All of these are missing in the EOSWORK.DSK image. If you generate new media in ...
