  1. Hello, all. I've purchased a Diamond Trackstar 128 but the utility disk wasn't included. Sadly this disk is needed in order to actually use the hardware. A Teledisk disk image is available from the asimov FTP, but it doesn't work... because the original disk is copy-protected. Software for the later Trackstar models is also available for download -- and by this time the company learned that copy-protecting the disks made no sense -- but these don't work with the 128. If someone has an extra working utility disk available for the Trackstar 128 I'd like to arrange to either buy it, or borrow it for proper disk imaging using special hardware. Thanks. Please contact me here or by e-mail (e-mail preferred) if you can help... [email protected]
  2. Summer is coming to a close and soon it will be too cold to ride the bicycle. I’m running out of old programs to post and look forward to writing new ones. When I wrote this one back in 1990 I had a lot of hiRes pictures that were produced using Graphics Master and Map Ware (APX). Both these programs (and a lot more) save pictures in a 62 sector format. It is saved screen memory without compression. The HiRez is also used for the Diamond Desktop. So knowing how to load background pictures (I think they call it wallpaper now.) can have its uses. I’m not sure what I was thinking back then but I’m thinking graphic adventures at the moment. The zip files contain revision 3. It uses the file select function in Diamond 3.0. The first version used the MAC/65 file select macro. This worked well but the default file extension was .PIC. The second was to fix a bug and the default extension was changed too .GR8. To Run- 1. Open a window to the disk with View8 on it. 2. Click on VIEW83.APP to run. 3. Put the disk with the pictures into the disk drive (having them renamed with extension GR8 is a good idea) 4. Click on Load-picture in the drop down menu. 5. Now use the file selector to select a file. With any luck the file will load. It will overwrite the menu bar titles but don’t worry. When the mouse is moved to the menu bar the selections will drop down. Luckily there are only three options. The first is the ACC list. If SDUMP.ACC is active you should be able to print out the screen. The second is for Load Picture and the Third is to quit VIEW8 and return to the desktop. This is one of those “it worked for me..you’re on your own” programs. If you have problems and find a fix, I’d like hear all about it. VIEW83.zip contains VIEW83.APP and VIEW83.M65 VIEW83.zip GR8.zip – assorted pictures/maps GR8.zip
  3. Does anyone know the right way to bring up the Diamond for the ColecoVision version of Mr. Do! which awards you with 10,000 points and a quick move to the next screen? As in, what would the proper algorithm be to get the Diamond to appear on the CV version? ~Ben
  4. Ever wonder if you could output MIDI data to a MIDI synthesizer from your Diamond GOS equipped ATARI 8 bit through a MIDI MAX compatible interface? I didn't think so but I had to ask. And the answer is: YES - {video removed} I came across a MIDI device handler(M:) and blogged about the adventure of writing a test program in ATARI BASIC. I have had the time to try it out with a Diamond GOS program written in machine code using the MAC65 assembler. It seems that the handler, if loaded as an AUTORUN.SYS, will stay operational when quitting to BASIC or when running an APP. The program DMIDITST.APP loads and then sets up the menu bar with a quit command. Then it places 8 icons for the C scale. These where borrowed from a previous program. The M: device is opened for output to the MIDI interface. There is no error checking for the M: device and am not sure what will happen if it's not loaded. I did note that after running SDUMP.ACC, the program stopped working. This was most likely caused by the ACC opening the same IO channel for the printer that was opened for the M: device. Haven't run into an other glitches. On the chance you have an A8, Diamond GOS, MIDI interface and a MIDI sound module, the disk with the m: device, application, source and macro library files is attached. Diamond MIDI test.atr Create a Diamond boot disk with DOS and configuration files. Copy the AUTORUN.SYS and DMIDITST.APP to your boot disk. Hook up your synth, push in your Diamond cart, boot up the system, and load the app. I used DOS 2.5 on an xe with st mouse, Diamond GOS 3 and MIDIMAX. There shouldn't be any reason why the program sill not run under Diamond 2.0. It would be nice to hear that someone else was able to get it to run on their system.
  5. This is from the Diamond 3.0 GOS user manual on page 8. "Command Line Files with a COM extender are considered to be Command Line files. When executing such files you will be asked to enter various parameters. This allows various options to be passed from the DeskTop to another program. If you do not need any parameters to be entered then simply press RETURN and the program will be executed as if it were a normal APP. The command line used by Diamond is not the same as the one used by SpartaDOS, however Diamond's command line is SpartaDOS compatible when SpartaDOS is active." I don't know of any reason why the command line can not be used with the FujiNet commands but it will be some time before I can experiment. If anyone has had any experience with the Diamond command line and FujiNet COMs please consider sharing them with me/us.
