Hi all,
 
 
I'm not sure you guys are familiar with DOS.Master, but it is a program by Glen E. Bradon that allows DOS3.3 sectors to exist on a ProDos formatted Disk. This allows you to launch DOS 3.3 from ProDos, with it the ability to run DOS 3.3 software.
 
I've always wanted to be able to run IntBasic from ProDos, so this seemed like a reasonable middle ground. Have this DOS3.3 partition on my ProDos drive. Enter from ProDos, load IntBasic, use it, return to ProDos when done.
 
The PDF of the manual makes reference to a program known as LOAD INT. This supposedly loads Integer Basic into the language card. Clearly this program was designed to work with Integer Basic. However, none of the disk images online have this program, so I'm not sure how it worked.
 
When I bring over the LOADER.OBJ0 from DOS 3.3, it doesn't quite work. It will load IntBasic, when when I enter it, I end up getting memory related errors.
 
Does anyone have a copy of the original DOS.MASTER disk? Give it's unique structure(DOS 3.3 & PRODOS), it may be a good time to AppleSauce it because the images available online today aren't quite right. I'd really like to take a look at LOAD INT.
 
If you can't find this original program, an idea for an alternative would be appreciated.
 
 
Best,
Grimakis
