10 c=peek(10)+256*peek(11)

20 day=peek(c+13):month=peek(c+14):year=peek(c+15)

30 hour=peek(c+16):min=peek(c+17):sec=peek(c+18)


What about this don't you understand? This is simple BASIC.




Edit: You guys DO know, I hope that I was only using BASIC to show you a simple way of doing this. It can be accomplished using Assembly more easily. Any language, actually. I was only providing a template.to help new users who haven't read the manual, available here: http://sdx.atari8.in..._User_Guide.pdf


(Banging my head off the wall now, if you guys can't figure it out yet.)...... :)

Wow, as of today's news: We are truly Infallible. :)




Read it first on my BBS.

Any chance for 1400XL V: PBI ROM and emulation of the Votrax SC-01A chip?

I'm now suspecting it the Rverter driver that's limiting me.   The board itself breezes through the ASCII animation at 38.4 when connected to my laptop (running minicom terminal emulator).


Animation runs at higher speeds without scrambling but it does become hurky-jerky.


I don't own any wired devices for connecting to the internet.




R:Verter is, I think the best solution. It is Pure PoKey performing at its finest. It will go fast, but we MUST get some kind of hardware flow control going. This should be an easy project. Use SIO + a JoyPort for the control lines. I have been saying this for a long time. This is CHEAP, EASY, and I know it will work. Prove me wrong?

I have a question:


For those who have added RVerter logic to their modules, ESP-1 or nodeMCU/lolin/wemos dev board, have you confirmed that the wifi modem that you created plays nice with real drives?



Add a Diode.


Edit: No, it's more than a diode for you guys that used that WRONG schematic. You must tri-state your device off of SIO during transactions un-related to the R: device.

This requires a chip to get your device on / off the SIO Buss as required..
