  1. Why don't you just use letters and digits? S, E, D, 3, 7, H A second letter would render the display unreadable.
  2. Let's make emkay less misanthropical. My proposal here is, if you want to make this ...
  3. Out of curiosity: Does this mean that changing a graphics mode via the OS will fail if there is not enough space in between?
  4. I own a Happy 810 copy of SynFile+ 1.00 which was made 1984 or 1985 from an original disk with many 21-sector tracks. It still works flawlessly. It even survived two crossings of the Atlantic Ocean to be dumped by Farb.
  5. It means "Freeware" according to TOSEC's naming standard. IIRC Steve Hales has given permission to freely distribute all his games.
  6. Not yet. I was caught up with too many other things. Due to the way I intend to present them, I must preprocess everything. You will find them eventually here https://archive.org/details/@cs_stuttgart where currently only a few test uploads can be found.
  7. I have no idea. Maybe @Farb @toddtmw @remowilliams @Bill Lange can help.
  8. Copy/Paste? H: device pointing to the same location.
  9. The "long line" character is in the exact place of the pipe symbol ($7C) and also looks like the pipe symbol in the non-international ATASCII character set.
  10. Both images of Expando-Vision contain some identical code and many different text strings. The cart contains only 4KB of data which are mirrored to the second half. @ianoid's 16KB dump is 8 KB of $FF followed by the 2*4 KB of data. And it is a bad dump. It seems that the $200 address line is always high.
  11. The second one is the standard pipe-symbol "|"
  12. BITD in the computer department of our favorite department store we cleared the screen, typed "READY" and went off. 😈
  13. Define them as "spoiler", then they can be opened when needed
  14. Why don't you upload all of them? Less work in verifying for you and disk space is cheap (as Kay Savetz say all the time). To compare ATXs with Farb's tool: a8diskcomp atxfile1 atxfile2 It will show differences in sector data as well as track formatting To compare ATRs: 1. Beyond Compare From scootersoftware.com (must be payed, standard version is suffiecient) to directly compare binaries. I mostly use it to find similarities but not differences. To do a sector-by-sector comparison it is too "intelligent" in resyncing after differences. Therefore you have similar or identical data side by side but no longer in the raster of 128 bytes sector data. 2. WinMerge From winmerge.org (GPL) which is only useful to compare text files. Therefore I preprocess ATRs with a hexdump tool and compare the resulting text output. xxd -g 1 "$FILE" - | sed 's/^000/00/' > "$FILE.txt" This way you exactly see the difference between sectors. If only one byte has been inserted, the remainder of the disk shows as differing - which usually is no problem when analysing disk images. I also have a shell script to call atx.pl and automatically convert ATXs to ATRs which I can upload later when back at home.
