Hoping someone can help me figure this out. I am trying to use bobterm with the xep80. I am connecting via APE. I have no trouble while connecting without the xep80. As soon as I put the xep driver on the atr as module1.btm, bobterm starts dropping characters. I do see text on both the xep and atari screen, but tons of characters are dropped. I have tried all baud rates from 300 to 9600, although I don't think baud should be an issue because I get dropped characters even when not connected. For instance, I type '?', and the APE help menu has lots of dropped characters. I have tried bobterm versions 1.20, 1.21, and 1.22- all with the same result. I couldn't get 1.23 to load at all. I have tried using the updated module1 from Mathy's site that supports 9600 baud with each version of bobterm.
What am I missing?
I haven't tried downgrading or updating APE. I haven't tried not using APE and connecting via 850 and 830 modem. Is there anything else I can try? Is there an alternative to bobterm that works with the xep?
Have you tried using ICE-T 184.108.40.206 80 column ANSI/ASCII terminal for the Atari 8-bit? You can download a copy here in these forums. It was posted a while back. I use it all the time without the XEP80.
