CF Card for Incognito

Fri Jul 8, 2016 8:05 PM

Looking for some wisdom about how to get a CF card formatted and working for an Incognito Atari. I've got an 8GB SanDisk Ultra CF card and a USB multi card reader hooked up to a windows 7 system. I'm assuming it's not as simple as 'format the card, then put it in the atari'.


CIO Burst mode

Tue Jun 14, 2016 5:43 PM

Messing around with burst mode CIO on a iccom 7 GET. The last issue I'm having is that CIO wants to drop the value in A, which it thinks is the byte it just read, into the buffer at the first location. For reasons involving banking, I can't easily get that byte in the current code location, so I'm looking for a way to convince CIO that it doesn't need to do that. Is there a special value of A or Y that tells it to not do that? Other than flagging an error with a BMI Y I mean.

Looking for someone in the U.S. who can do a rapidus install on a 130xe. Will pay shipping and installation fee. PM me if you are willing & able, thanks.

128 bytes

Fri May 13, 2016 4:01 PM

I need 128 bytes in a static, known location. I need it to be safe from molestation by DOS's and ordinary user programs. Does not have to be contiguous. 

I thought CASBUFF might be ok, but a couple dos's walk all over it. I know page 6 is supposed to be free, but so many people use it as 'free' that it's probably not really any more.

I realize this is probably a fruitless quest, but I thought I'd ask before resorting to more drastic measures.

CIO Question

Sun Feb 7, 2016 3:03 PM

So, I'm doing a PRINT #2,"HI THERE" from basic, where IOCB #2 has been opened to my handler. I do get calls to my put byte vector, but ICCOM is 5, which is INPUT, not PRINT. Plus I seem to be getting a series of 10 or so spaces (hex 20's) before I start getting the "HI THERE" bytes. I am confused about why ICCOM is not correct and why I am getting the spaces. Is BASIC doing something weird here, or what?
