#4135224 SIO Wifi modem with esp8266

Posted by Kyle22 on Yesterday, 8:00 PM

Yeah, back up again. It turns out then when he pulled my cable, he also pulled his and (for some reason) couldn't remember how to fix it. He had to call me for help :)

 

Look for an upcoming Detailed post about this on the Board.

 

Doc reported this in post 1218, BTW. http://atariage.com/...49#entry4134438




#4132977 SRAM-Charger for Indus-GT - interest poll

Posted by Kyle22 on Sat Oct 13, 2018 6:49 PM

and where is 1.3X?

It's really 1.2 improved. I wish they hadn't taken out the beep from the buttons. That is CONFIRMATION for me. In the source, it's labelled BEP. Look for where CALL BEP was removed and replace it at the appropriate place.

I like the faster spin down, but not much.

 

I really don't think the Indus is really badly behaved at all.

 

My only issue with it is the SUPERSYNC that I fixed in the ONE and OLNY version of SDX4.23. !!!

 

If you boot DOSXL 2.35i and program the drive, it would work SOMETIMES in SDX 4.22 The Track Buffering RAMCharger version caused the most lock-up problem (sometimes press BREAK will get you past it).

 

I don't remember nw what I did, but it IS in the Z80 code of SuperSync that I added an extra NOP or 2 to affect the Bit-Bang cycle time.

 

I am SO SORRY that I don't remember the exact details.  I know this is possible!

 

Even faster speeds are really possible.

 

Come on, Z-80 guys help

 

This could be LIGHT YEARS ahead of Happy, Archiver, BitWriter or anything.

 

 

Now, when I run Zork or WordStar  from a RespeQt SIO drive locked to 19200, If I play Zork FAST, it works.

 

If you let time out at all ( there is NO indication ) of how long you can wait.

 

I normally don't cross post, but this goes to RespeQt as well.

 

 

Edit: Dumb ass ME made that SDX INDUS.SYS that works with RAMCharger. At full Sync+ speed..

Sucks that I lost it. This should only take a good hacker a short time to figure this out.

 

It just HIT me one day when looking over the SuperSync source code.\

 

 

I'm burned out (read my comment in the BBS thread)

 

and don't have all  my CP/M equipment any more to do the Z80 stuff.

 

Oh, I wish I did...

If you're into productivity rather than just games, you should consider http://atari8.co.uk

and also http://seriouscomput...altervista.org/

 

These are great sites with great people running them.

 

Edit: And there are many more. These two are my fav's, though.

#4132385 New version of ATARI 8 bit emulator released!

Posted by Kyle22 on Fri Oct 12, 2018 9:04 PM

Definitely recognize the love of this platform and hard work put in by the programmers.  I have run it successfully on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10  (64 bit version). 

 

Thanks for this release and looking forward to future releases.

 

I don't think we can ever have too many emulators!  :)   Great effort towards the fun factor here.  :thumbsup:

I wish they would compile this to run under Win XP. Altirra does. Why don't they? That is my main complaint at this point.

 

I haven't been able to even try this thing.

 

Before anyone asks why I run XP on my Probook i5 Quad, it's because I LIKE it, and I REFUSE to be SPIED upon by M$.

 

:)




#4131743 Altirra 3.10 released

Posted by Kyle22 on Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:22 PM

Hi Avery. I just want to say 'Thank You' for making this wonderful emulator! It's the best I have ever seen!

:)

I don't find Altirra 'clunky' at all.




#4131693 New version of ATARI 8 bit emulator released!

Posted by Kyle22 on Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:46 PM

OK, I have the VC17 runtime installed, and it refuses to run under Win XP32.

 

This makes it useless to me and many others.

 

I'll stick with Altirra.

 

Can you guys emulate a Corvus?

Edit: The Runtime installed OK, just not the emu. It says Not a Win32 app.

 

Is a compatible re-compile possible?




#4127416 SDrive-MAX ATX support

Posted by Kyle22 on Thu Oct 4, 2018 6:49 PM

I like original, big type B ports. They don't break anywhere close to the failure rate on the mini and especially micro.

I firmly believe these tariff's are a good thing. This is only a temporary situation. As soon as China agrees to back down, then we will.

 

All this is just some much needed political arm-twisting. Give it 6 months or so.  No biggie.

Great idea Doc! 

 

That reminds me of something I was thinking about: A Win32 executable that would scrape some latest news headline sites and download the top articles as text. Have it save to a PCLINK: directory, and then an automated script could run on the Atari to pull the latest news onto the board.

 

Possible?




#4125486 MiniPro TL866 Upgrade Instructions

Posted by Kyle22 on Mon Oct 1, 2018 10:08 PM

it does less.... that's about it..

 

Let me get this straight. The Newer model has LESS functionality than the old one, and is most likely more expensive.

M$ has been removing features from Windows for quite a while now.

 

Same with Apple and their Xs piece of crapple. Where's the home button? How do you double tap to bring up Task Manager?

 

Inquiring minds want to know what is so much better about this crap that it makes these rich idiots give up their money to buy this junk that spys on us.

 

No Thanx Crapple.

:)

 

Edit: Rooted Androids are the best, once you have gotten all the EVIL Goo drained out of it. :)

 

PIXELKNOT is awesome. Great for covert ops.

 

Try it.

:)

I don't remember from the top of my head, but I think it runs on a 128K system.
Possibly even 64K.
Others can chime in with more information (Doc?).

It looks good. The only things I would have done differently are:

 

1. mention that SIO2PC, APE, and the PC are not necessary if you have an interface (850, etc.) and a Lantronix box.

2. Express is OK, but now days I think more people use BobTerm or Ice-T.

 

BTW, I validated your account. You now have full access.




#4124090 Galaga for 8-bits?

Stop being so negative. Please don't make me (and more) put you on 'IGNORE' list.
