ASGARD / WINFRIED WINKLER: XB3 - Extended Basic III


 

Update: the XB3-files here are same version as the well-known ones, so the "Call Coinc" crashes too...

Maybe this can be fixed ?

.Would be nice to have XB3 on the #FinalGrom99 :) :lust:

Hi, here - maybe - is another special from the

 

ASGARD / WINFRIED WINKLER: XB3 - Extended Basic III

 

attachicon.gifXB3_Eproms-small.jpg

 

At Birkenau´s Meeting, Bernhard and I, we could read out the XB3 cartridge with the Wiesbaden Supermodule II v2.1

using this special Widget I brought along. OK, Bernhard did ;)

I think, Rudi gave this widget to me, some years ago.

I am not sure if I understood that correct, but up to now it was a problem to read out the XB3 (and carts like this?) because of "the widgets" ?

By the way, so or so, with this widget we could switch that cartridges while reading out, without getting any errors.

And Bernhard also did more some work on that in the past, reading out the Eproms and so. I don´t know. You will know :)

In advance, I have also unpacked his DSK-files with TI99DIR, but I am not sure if this was really needed :0)

 

So here are the results now, maybe some of you wizards can use that to get it running on the UberGROM, FinalGROM´99, Emus,

or whatever, or can use that in any way, if not given :)

 

Have fun

xXx

Asgard gave me my first AMS 128K (SAMS) card to create a XB AMS routines built into RXB or at that time called Rich GKXB.

 

The result was:

CALL AMSINIT ! Initialized AMS for use, not needed today as I do this on start of module.

CALL AMSBANK(lowbank,highbank) ! Loads low 4K bank and high 4K bank for Lower 8K assembly support up to 192K of these banks.

CALL AMSMAP ! Puts AMS into Map mode.

CALL AMSOFF ! Turns off AMS Mapper and Pass mode switching.

CALL AMSON ! Turns on AMS Mapper and Pass mode switching.

CALL AMSPASS ! Puts AMS into PASS mode (behaves like a normal unexpanded 32K card).

 

I do not know how many RXB or Rich GKXB cartridges Asgard made or sold as I never asked them for any money or records, but did get letters from people asking for a cart.

I as thinking about the legendary “Press” word processing program that Asgard worked on for so long. Was the source code or actual program in this program stash? As I recall, writing a memory mapper was the downfall in the development at the time.

Yea I have the source code for PRESS but I think it is also on the White FTP site also.

Cool. I remember being pretty disappointed when it got cancelled.

Wait maybe I was thinking First Draft instead.

 

I have the source of that, I don't see Press on my drives so far.

I know it's been a year since anything got posted to this thread, but does anyone have First Draft and LinEditor? Those are really the only two Asgard packages I want but don't have. I checked whtech and Googled for them...nada.
