I wonder if there is any version of Turbo Basic XL that I can flash in one of U1Mb basic slots and use it instead of Atari Basic. I did a little research but I could not find anything to be used.
I already checked info on AtariWiki but I have no clue which of this can be flashed in U1mb. A version that I found on atr file supposed to be working through SpartadosX just gives "garbage" on screen after loading.
Appreciate any help on this...
Hi there, @dimfil,
Having recently looked into this with my own system, I can say that there is not a way to drop TurboBASIC into one of the slots (TurboBASIC is not within the 8K limitations, for example).
You should be able to use Version 1.5 with SpartaDOS X, although you will need to make certain your startup configuration files are set correctly, and for that I would refer you to Page 251 of the SpartaDOS X User Guide.
Version 1.5 will do this screen scrambling during load, and then bring you to the prompt once it's completed loading into your system. And like was noted above, you will load TurboBASIC with the X command.
