In Topic: Atari's Plato Cartridge question

Tue Feb 6, 2018 4:00 AM

Found the logs, cleaned up to have just the PLATO stuff, here they are: https://pastebin.com/2E429mfK

 

I first connected on January 7th using TLP, took me a bit of fussing around with a sniffer to figure out that shift+SUB sent the right code to do what should have been shift+STOP and actually get logged in. I had trouble reading some of the screens though, because the color codes got in the way a lot.

Well, I'm glad to see much has been accomplished already since I initially logged in to my account back sometime in january (account created the 7th, probably logged in 9th or 10th, I'd have to check the IRC logs). I guess I beat you all to the first signon from an (unfortunately emulated) Atari in 35 years :-D

 

I would like to be able to use the 800XL, but my 850 is 150 miles away... Hopefully somebody can hack in support for disk loaded R: drivers, and then I can figure something out (or else I might have to see if the APE trial will fire up in wine or a VM).

 

Also, I guess I'll see if I can get my group changed to the atari one.


In Topic: Version 3 boots fine, 4 does not.

OK, well the only other way to go about this is for me to start building from various commits and trying to narrow this down. I'm not doing that now, I have to get some sleep and move my stuff down at school tomorrow, I can't get around to it until next week at the earliest.

Try this.


In Topic: Where can I get a new SIO2PC?

Wed Aug 2, 2017 6:30 PM

Ray's SIO2PC is just an FTDI chip, except that it has the VID/PID changed. This prevents the normal FTDI drivers from detecting the chip as an FTDI serial converter. Somewhere on Ray's site, I think there is the program to set the VID and PID back to the normal ones so the FTDI drivers will recognize it normally.
