  1. Ok, fixed, current download will give you 38k free RAM. In the LiteDOS zip-file you find 2 other TBXL versions, compiled at $1100 and $1200. This is for users who want to reserve RAM for other things, like drivers or own usage. Again, Thanks to DMSC for the TBXL-versions. GOBO: Thanks for the report.
  2. Yes, you are right. Somehow the version of TBXL I have put on the download does not want to start. Very strange..... I will remove the download an upload a new one later this weekend. In the mean-time, here is the TBXL loading at $1000 I got from DMSC. That should have been on the disk and works just fine. Again, very strange.... tb-10.com
  3. Ok, I will check. Been away for some time (on my hols), I did not check AA for a while. If needed, here is a version compiled by DMSC at $0c00 for LiteDOS-XS You can take/use the compiler and runtime from the 2.08 disk. Plans are to upload the read-only version of LiteDOS soon. It can read only, so for games/apps that need to load files, or as gamedos. Memlo will be $0a00 for this version. Need to shuffle some routines around to make it work with overwriting programs, avoiding the loading routines.... Grtz, Sijmen. tb-0C.com
  4. 19k2 goes 🙂 Here is a patched FAST-IO were SELECT-1 (default) uses OPEN R: with baudrate $0F. Meaning for my ESP-driver to use 19k2. Short video.... MOV08295.MPG PLATOTERM-LITE-ATARI-1.3-NOTOUCH-FASTIO-19k2.rom R-ESP.ATR
  5. I forgot to mention the AUX-codes for these baudrates. They are $08 though $0F, $08 being 600 baud and $0F 19k2 So you need to use $0F, for selecting 19k2. Your buffer can start as low as $900 Actually my driver only checks the lower 3 bits, so 8 available baudrates, those obscure <300baudrates are not supported.
  6. Small update: Added 1800 and 19k2 Moved 300 and 600 baud to keys "H" and "BSP" Keys 1-2-3-4-5-6 are now baudrates 1k2-1k8-2k4-4k8-9k6-19k Default on OPEN R: is 2400 baud, internal 256 byte buffer So, let's see if PLATO can do 19k2 R-ESP.ATR
  7. There was a bug in the tiny terminal. Preventing the baudrate to change. Somehow it was stuck at 2k4. I noticed this only after setting my baudrate from 2400->4800 using the AT+UART-command.... (oops) In PLATO, changing the baudrate was OK. R-ESP.ATR
  8. I have set mine now to 4800, let see what it brings. Yours (Thom) was set to 2400 before I shipped it. It has a sticker on it with "2400", to remind you of setting plato to 2400. Success on updating the firmware on the ESP. I leave it like it is. Meaning the long TTY sequence of logging onto a BBS or Plato. Don't know how/Don't dare to update. So, please, get the TTY-modus of plato in line with the ESP logon sequence, thanks. (Just thinking out loud, when you set the ESP to 19k2, you could install a firmware that boot-straps and send the driver to the Atari as the 850 does.....) Later!
  9. The tiny-terminal inside my driver is because PLATO can not connect the ESP to the server using it's TTY. Before the ESP get's transparent you need to send the CIPSEND-command, and that is impossible. PLATO is already connected to the server and data is ging back/forth (after the CIPSTART-command). Thus making it impossible to send (any) line of text. So, until this is solved, I need to connect to the server with the tiny-terminal. Then press ESC, PLATO sees the connection and starts immediately, skipping TTY. ESP-driver: Memory-wise, it uses page 7 and 8 for code and page 9 for buffer (roughly). Page 9 is free, when the user supports it's own buffer size/place. ESP, out of the box: This is a bit of a hassle, since you buy it set to 115k and every AT-hard-reset will set it back to 115k. The ATARI (PAL) can't do 115k and the NTSC flaky (just in/out-side serial specification). So I wrote a small program that does a simulated 115k bitrate, mixing the pokey's available 111k and 127k bitrate. Sending the command to the ESP to go down to 1200 (1221 to be axact, lower values are wrongly accepted by the ESP, DO NOT TRY!!). I can easily change this to 2400, 4800 or any other (unbound) bitrate for PLATO. Grtz, Sijmen.
  10. OK, here are my w.i.p. versions: I do have the impression, PLATO has changed internally and the server interaction is different. (Perhaps that's why FAST-IO 1.2 stopped working.) Anyhow, I tested 9600 baud and that goes OK. Baudrates 300-600-1200-2400-4800-9600 supported by the driver. Colors in the background, just to check if transmission still goes. (300 and 600 are not supported by the ESP, but I have included them for R-verters) PLATOTERM-LITE-ATARI-1.3-NOTOUCH-FASTIO.rom FASTIO.ASM R-ESP.ATR
  11. My question about translation is for the driver. Currently it only supports RAW and sends Error-146 if something else is chosen. If plato uses it in TTY-mode, then I have to add this. Variable buffer/size and location already works, as changing the baudrate. But changing the baudrate only is to match the atari with the ESP. Changing the baudrate on the ESP is done with an AT-command. Work in progress and quit working OK: R-driver as bootable disk. Patched FAST-IO in a 1.3 version NOTOUCH, GET BYTE and STATUS only. Later!
  12. I posted this on facebook, small change to the schematics, the 3.3v regulator is to week. "I currently use the LM2937 (500mA), because the 2950 (100mA) kept resetting the ESP for 1-2 minutes before it stayed ON.... And changed the 10 uF to 0.1 uF, removed the 0.1 uF between 5vReady and ground." I have put the board vertically in the SIO-plug, that just fits. The 7404 can be a SMD-version, but I have put a DIL in the gap on the other side.
  13. Next: Does PLATO use translation modes $00 (EOL<->CR) or $40 (Add LF to translated CR) ?
  14. Short question: Why is PLATO 1.3 reserving $C00 buffer (3k) instead of your 2048 mentioned above?
  15. In the meantime, I use the bootable R-verter driver from disk (No DOS), that does what you ask it to do. Have to re-do the SPECIAL baudrate-command, since you should not/can't overwrite this. Baudrate is set using an AT-command, not by changing the pokey bitrate. Later!
