A new test image

Post by Milli » Mon Dec 21, 2020 9:36 am

I set this beta test image up for James - it is setup as follows:

A = 8mb drive (the image)
B = Disk drive (or image on ADE)
C & D = DDP drives

80 column (40 column at a time - use CTRL -> and CTRL <- to swap windows.
It uses the escape sequences and control codes listed in the CP/M manual on D29 - D31
No smart keys are used or displayed

If you have an EVE or Orphanware RS232 you can use a null modem cable to plug it into a PC (or terminal) and this Beta will allow you to use the terminal instead as well as the Adam. It is setup for 4800 baud 8N1. This is the best speed I found where it doesn't loose any characters.

All printing is dumped to a parallel card if you have one - else it will not go anywhere.

Thank you. Will have some fun testing once I get a Null Modem Adapter to go between the ADAM serial cable and the PC USB to serial cable.

Looks like that image is causing some issues.
Turbo Pascal locks up intermittently and the display scrolling does not seem to work with the editor.
Adamed does not work at all.
Does the image make changes to the standard Adam VDP layout? Did you make changes to the BIOS calls?

The vdp routines are totally rewritten for 80 column. If you stick to cpm BDOS calls and use the control / escape sequences it works good though there are some bugs :)
