  1. My understanding is that this not compatible to the original DragonCart since it uses the W5100 chip. But in cartridge format.
  2. Exactly "where" is the location? I didn't find it.

  4. I don't think that this is true. For port #2 at least. In the 80ies I had built an C64-Atari connection cable to transfer data btw. them. This cable connected via joystick ports (one on each system). I have lost in the meanwhile the cable, the wiring diagram, and the source code to one side (C64 prog or Atari prog, I don't know right now). regards, chris
  5. I'm just reading that now. Thank you very much. And it feels good that somebody is actually using it and my work was not just for the ivory tower... regards, chris
  6. Version numbers are often not considered to be fractional numbers but in the format MAJOR.MINOR. And there 9 < 14. See for example MAME which switched from 0.99 to 0.100. But I agree, it's confusing. One has to know which scheme is in effect for a given prorgram.
  7. I'm fine with that. I exactly want this :-)
  8. Trimmed in which way? Is there something left out, except for preferences and splash screen? Nice job! regards, chris
  9. I would avoid division entirely, and approximate the multiplicator with power of 2 values, e.g. 1.6 ~= 1 + 0.5 + 0.0625 + 0.03125 = 1 + 1/2 + 1/16 + 1/32 = 1.59375 This could be implemented by a collection of shifts and adds and no loop is required. regards, chris
  10. Who played this video? It almost hurts to watch, I was much better back then :-) (Around '86 on vacation in Italy where the machine was in a cafe bar near the beach.)
  11. I would volunteer to help, but I've got only 5 or 6 copy-protected disks to test with...
  12. Are there programs which together with a Happy drive (I've got a Mega-Speedy which is compatible) can create ATX-Images from copy-protected disks?
  13. If you have an (old) PC with 360k floppy drive, and this PC has a controller which supports FM, you could use ImageDisk (http://www.classiccmp.org/dunfield/img/index.htm) to make an image. Floppy controllers for the PC which support FM are rather rare. I salvaged during the times three Siemens/Nixdorf Pentium and Pentium2 machines from the dumpster, and all of them support FM. So such machines are likely to support FM.
  14. Sure. I understand the concept of "time zones" and I know that there is Thanksgiving in the US. I missed the part with the "modem setting handling" in your release announcement, my fault. Didn't want to "push" you, but I feared you missed my post and just wanted to provide a kind reminder. You hadn't missed it, but I missed that you hadn't missed it... sorry
  15. phaeron, could you look at http://atariage.com/forums/topic/285191-altirra-how-to-get-a-non-modem-serial-connection/ ? Maybe it fell through the cracks, or maybe the question is too stupid? regards, chris
  16. To the OP: you can copy cputs.s from the library sources to your project, modify it (remove 0x10 special handling) and compile and link it to your application. It will replace the library version of these functions.
  17. I guess that was written by Mark Keates and/or me. This was in the year 2000 and I don't remember the details and who is responsible for that part. Could be that he or I wanted to be more compatible with "regular" (ASCII) text files. One could think of a "type textfile.txt" or "cat textfile.txt" like program to display the contents of a text file. If the text file wouldn't be in ATASCII, but in ASCII, the program would still do the right thing. Maybe that part is not really needed in the cputc function. But I will be a major test effort to verify that, after 18yrs the current code in place. regards, chris
  18. And, honestly, a connection to a real serial port on the Altirra host would be useful as well (maybe even more). One could connect real modems (ok, maybe not in 2018), serial printers, plotters, and all other weird RS232 stuff to the emulated Atari. regards, chris
  19. Hi, I'm running Altirra 3.10(?) (About-Help doesn't show the exact version number, I've inferred it from Help->Changelog) on Win10 which is running in a VirtualBox environment on my Linux machine. I'm running kermit65 on the Atari and want to test some simple data transfer over the emulated RS232 line. Along the lines of typing "abc" on the Atari and see it on the other end, and vice versa. I'm using "Full - SIO protocal and RS232 R: handler" emulation in Altirra. The TCP port used (9000) is relayed from the VBox environment to the Linux host. I'm running netcat on Linux. I doesn't work. Nothing I type on the Atari arrives on the Linux side. When typing something on the Linux side I'm getting something sometimes, but mixed with "BELL" notifications from kermit. (Maybe my kermit settings aren't 100% correct, this could also be part of the issue). But now an obvious problem I've noticed: In the "Modem setup" screen in the Altirra device mananger, when I unselect (or leave it unselected initially) "Emulate Telnet Protocol", close it, an open it again, it's always selected. I don't want the telnet protocol. I appears to be impossible to disable due to this problem. The modem emulation seems to interpret some AT commands. I don't want that. I'd like to have an unprocessed data line, like when connecting two computers with a null-modem calble. @phaeron, would you consider to add a straight data connection from an 850 port to a TCP port? regards, chris
  20. You can of course always host a svn repo on your local home server
  21. I watched the "Computer Games" link of the "Computer Chronicles" page. Nice stuff. That were the times...
  22. "changing gears": "I think there was even one where you had to press forward to accelerate, possibly the button changed gear." --> First I thought I misremembered, and that was my version. But I think, still, pressing button was to accelerate and joy-up changed gear to lower one, and joy-down to upper one. regards, chris
