Hello! I've been thinking about getting back into retro console repair and modification. I attempted to, a long while back, but then my life got kind of dumped on. NOW that I have the time and money to get back into the hobby, I wanna get back to trying to learn. What would you include in a retro-console repair kit? What sizes of tools? and so on.
Hello folks, After the positive response from the Homebrew group on Facebook, I decided to start creating a tool for drawing out kernel code. This would ease out development of correctly timed drawing code, using a simple drag-and-drop tool. Here attached is a HTML demo of what I've made last 2 days. It is still very preliminary, but it is just to give the feeling. kernelpaint.html see also on Github: https://github.com/Yvar-deGoffau/Kernel-Paint Please send in any feedback, and I hope to find more free time in my week. Of course, all contribution is more than welcome!
Here is something I have worked on the weeking. It's some testfiles for un-crunching BASIC programs. The txt files are the LIST output of those programs, so they are matching exactly the way the BASIC INTERPRETER does the uncrunching of each basic line of the program. (Classic99 was used with LIST "CLIP" to generate those txt files) If you compare that to the available tools (TI99DIR, imagetool,...) you will see that all have some issues in recreating that same syntax. Example: Output from TI99dir of Line 4 of XBCMD1 4 ACCEPTVALIDATE("YN"):R$ Output from TiImageTool of Line 4 of XBCMD1 4 ACCEPT VALIDATE ("YN"):R$ while if you LIST the program in the TI99 you will see: 4 ACCEPT VALIDATE("YN"):R$ XBCMD1 contains examples for XB commands from A-P XBCDM2 contains examples for XB commands from P-Z XBCMD3 contains quote examples XBCMD4 contains all characters within strings from 0 to 255. Here the txt File fails for line 100 because it interprets some control character. The examples for XB commands are mostly taken from the XB Manual and are only extended by me if insufficient. I will create some more testfiles and add them as Unit Tests to Web99, so in case i touch the code, I immediately see if I broke some behavior. Feel free to do the same for your projects or use the files to manually test your tool during development. Btw: The programs can be loaded, but running them makes no sense, their purpose is to find out if your Tool decodes a TiFile into the Basic Source Code the same way the Basic Interpreter does. Please provide feedback if you want to use it, so I can provide you with updates. unittest.dsk XBCMD1.txt XBCMD2.txt XBCMD3.txt XBCMD4.txt
I have noticed on eBay, this Auction: Color Computer EDTASM+ Editor Assembler with ZBUG Radio Shack Tandy 26-3250 coco Would this be something "worthwhile" to purchase for the CoCo 3?? Are there any better recommendations for an Assembler Development Systems for the CoCo 3?? At this point, I have a CoCo 3 with 128K, and no Tape or Disk Interface. I am getting the DriveWire System setup on my computer, so I can work with Virtual Disk Images. The CoCo 3 is New in Box, and I am the Second Owner, the First Owner never plugged it in.. Neither have I, so I probably should.. MarkO
