  1. The manual for this is available (Atarimania), but have the disks been imaged yet? According to the R-Time 8 / SDCS Supplement, the contents are as such: The SpartaDOS Construction Set package includes: 1) a diskette containing the standard SpartaDOS version 1.1 on the front and public domain games with the LOGOMENU program on the back side 2) a diskette containing both SpartaDOS version 2.3 and 3.2 with their supporting command files I'm interested in hosting information and files for this on a website currently under construction. Any help in obtaining copies would be greatly appreciated. Also, it was noted in the "Software Preservation" thread that the ATX for the SpartaDOS Toolkit "may have a dump error". Was this ever confirmed or discounted? I'm currently planning to host the ATX from this archive, but I'd prefer not to if the dump isn't clean. Thanks, MF
  2. Howdy everyone! Recently I read a post by someone here on AtariAge, in some forum or another, who mentioned how much he dislikes the key click sound on our beloved A8 machines. I don't remember who or which forum right now but, I got thinking about it, and decided that for the most part, I too really don't care for the artificial key click sound the Atari makes. There are times I like it, but mostly not. Anyway, I use SpartaDOS X and thought that it would be handy to whip up a batch file which can turn the click on or off. I did that, and it worked. The problem is, it isn't callable from another batch file except as the last command. The reason for this is SpartaDOS X only allows batch chaining, not nesting. So I decided to just go ahead and make a .COM file which does the same job. Of course this can be called from anywhere in an AUTOEXEC.BAT or of course manually at the command prompt too. I just finished it and tested it some. Works good so far. I will post it tomorrow after I get everything put together into a package that is fit for distribution.
  3. OK, this question is going out to anybody who knows anything about details of the SpartaDOS file system. I'm using the information posted at: http://atari.kensclassics.org/dos.htm#sparta. I've determined that there seems to be a mistake in the information posted, and I'm trying to fill in the gap. Specifically, the info on that page says that bytes 9 & 10 of the boot sector contain the "First sector of sector map for main directory" but I have determined that they actually point to the first sector of the directory itself, not the sector map. Now I need to figure out how to determine the sector map for the main directory. Or, maybe the main directory is a fixed size and doesn't use a sector map. I dunno... anybody who has a clue about this, please let me know. If you're asking yourself what a "sector map" is in this context, you're probably not the one with the answer to my question, but I'll try to explain. With Atari DOS, and most of the other variants that are compatible, the directory entry for each file specifies the first sector used by the file. The last 3 bytes of each sector specify either that this is the last sector of the file, or the number of the next sector in the file. SpartaDOS does it a bit differently. For each file or directory, there is a sector map which indicates which sectors are used. A sector map is one or more sectors which contain a list of sector numbers that belong to the file.
  4. Hello, SpartaDOS X 4.46 with Toolkit is now officially available for download on: http://sdx.atari8.info (or http://spartados.com and http://spartadosx.com). List of changes is available here: http://sdx.atari8.in...46/whatsnew.txt Since the manual will be updated to 4.46 a little bit later, please review the whatsnew.txt file carefully. You may also like to visit SDX upgrade project on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/SpartadosX Although still in the early stage, the page contains highlights of the new release and other announcements.

  5. First of all, sorry if this info is found elsewhere. I searched but couldn't find it. It is my hope that if a solution is found that it helps others with the same issue. I am running Sparta 3.x on my Incognito 800, and the clock is wrong. I remember something about Incognito being different from RT8, but I don't remember if it's just hardware addresses that need patched, or what. I am trying to get Carina BBS running. It claims to use the Z: handler, but I haven't seen any Z: references in the code yet. I have seen COMTAB+16 in the code which indicates that it reads the time from Sparta directly rather than using Z: Ideas? Edit: To clarify, the clock is CORRECT in SDX, and in anything (DOS 2.x or whatever) that uses Z:. Is is only wrong in disk based Sparta.
