I just got very lucky. About a week ago, I did a search for that Geneve/MDOS program on the internet and found an article about a demo I had given years ago for the program. In that article, I recalled seeing the program name called $$CRASH$$.
All my searching through my remaining diskettes over the years, I had been looking for a disk labeled called "Stock program". Any diskettes with missing labels, I was cataloging them.
Two nights ago as I was doing some troubleshooting, I opened up a small case of diskettes, and low and behold, there sat a diskette and a backup diskette both called $$CRASH$$.
I put it into the Geneve, and it was the program I had been searching for 13 years right underneath my nose.
The code has the Save routine removed. It is only 2 lines of code missing and I watched Peter Muys comment out those two lines years ago and I know it is minimal effort to add them back. I just have to disassemble the code, find the save routine, and add a couple of lines of code for setting up the Save PAB in the XOP, and reassemble. I exchanged messages with Peter, and he has now blessed the program can be distributed, etc. without any restrictions. So, I will add the code back in and will need to translate some text into English.
Last night, I started to use Tom Freeman's MDOS DiSKASSEMBLER. Unfortunately, the size of the program requires an expanded Geneve and the real Geneve I have is a stock unit with no extra memory. Looks like I will probably want to do the 32K upgrade for fast ram and may as well do the 64K VRAM as well when I can acquire the chips.
For the interim though, I will need to read the diskette into a DSK image and do the disassembly and assembly on the MESS emulation side of things. Sorry Michael as I haven't moved to MAME yet. Not sure if the MAME side of things gives me any extra value for the Geneve. The MESS version I am using is v 0.143u3 August 16, 2011. It works for me and I rarely if ever use the TI-99/4A emulation. I've got that setup with the full 2 MB of memory so it should be no issue.
Anyways, Peter was ahead of his time with the $$CRASH$$ program with some websites like Yahoo Financials generating all the graphs and stock reports he was doing now on their websites. As far as the graphic routines, he had graphs that were autoscaling and plotting that was superb!
Anyways, I am a happy camper. If you haven't guessed, you can guess what I will be doing in the next few days once the holidays start. And, my UDS-10 is set to arrive this afternoon.
