Has anyone put together a list of AMS/SAMS software?

 

Just curious. :twisted:

Do you think this is something you might want to take on? I know Gazoo is not here to benefit, but I can think of possibly 40 individuals in the future that might like to see a listing such as this.

This was sent to me by Paul Shipnick who wrote the original AMS test program.

The original AMS test program was written by Shaun Baron. Bruce Harrison and I did the upgrade to AMSTEST4 to allow for 1 meg cards.

Note--you definitely have to use AMSTEST4 to test the new cards as well. All previous versions fail to detect it.

Yes of course I´ll do that. No problem to differ that AMS-soft in the list. I just need all your input.

I watch the thread here to fetch all infos, and do some search on other threads next days.

 

hmmm, I just wonder about that I did not recognize his request here before....

What about all the stuff I have written for the SAMS in RXB.

 

File Copy program disk to disk or hard drives or other devices written in XB so easy to read and edit program.

Sector copy program that copies 8K at a time into lower 8K each page and stores up to 917K for copy or editing all from a XB program that is easy to read.

Game In the Dark using SAMS 384K of memory for map.

Screen displays that copy entire VDP to lower 8K and into VDP for instant Screens from SAMS memory.

Loading and storing massive numbers of Assembly programs all written by different authors that load and save and run those program all from SAMS.

FIRST UPDATE v1.01 on the list :)

The posting on the PDF should read 1993 BLOAD/BSAVE as without BSAVE the BLOAD will not work in RXB.

I wrote it on a prototype 128K AMS Criss from ASGARD gave me, and later I had it upgraded to 512K then 1Meg.

Hi,

 

referring to your post here http://atariage.com/forums/topic/237697-super-ams-card-compatible-programs/?p=3226919

 

 

can you please tell me which of these C-Compilers are AMS- or SAMS-capable ?

(and if I missed a compiler, of course) :)

And I have a question on R.A. Green, is here in this (filtered) list software that IS AMS-/SAMS-Capable ?

RXB has the same thing and will detect any size card. 128K, 256K, 512K or 1 meg.

 

Also the program in RXB is written in XB not Assembly:

10 ! THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN
11 ! MODIFIED SO NO ASSEMBLY
12 ! IS USED. RXB COMMANDS
13 ! ARE THE ONLY COMMANDS
14 ! USED. THAT MEANS THE
15 ! AMS CAN HAVE ANY PAGE
16 ! SWAPED FROM RXB.

Hi, any idea how to get it to a DSK-file (V9T9) ?

 

I have copy and pasted the RX-Basic-sourcecode from the ASTEST4(RXB) here into a plain file on my PC (Text),

and then copied it with TI99DIR to an empty DSK-file.

On this step, I just called it "AMSTEST4RX" and told TI99DIR while copying that it is a "PROGRAM"

(TI99DIR asks for that, and I also told NOT to add 3 words (6 bytes) to my head (whatever that is) :)

 

If I now try to open my new AMS4TESTRX from DSK1 (DSK) in Classic99, I get an "I/O Error 50"

Same if I open my text-file via a FIAD, from a folder on my PC.

I also copied it back via TI99DIR to another folder (DSK2) to be sure to have a TIFILE for the FIAD,

but no gain, exactly the same I/O error 50....

 

I have also tried just to copy and paste the basic-sourcecode into Classic999/->RXB,

but I cannot write to an empty DSK1 that is inserted into Classic99 :(

I remember that this is not possible, or there was something ?

 

Anybody an idea how to get the Basiccode working in a .DSK-file (V9T9) ?

 

thanks a lot

If you're just copy and pasting the text anyway, why not paste it directly into RXB in Classic99 and save it to the disk image from there? Just modify your Classic99.ini and change the DiskType from 2 to 3 to load the TI Disk Controller (sorry, I'll get that all expanded into a proper option eventually). Note that since it's a TI disk controller it must be DSK1, DSK2 or DSK3 and no larger than 180k.

ah OK. after a long crusade I got it into a DSK-file now. I don´t know what goes wrong on converting,

so I did as you told me, just copied and pasted the AMS4TEST(RXB) via the Classic99-XB-function, directly into RXB here.

Then I saved it to my DSk2, which is configured as a FIAD-directory.

There from I took the new TIFILE now, and copied it with TI99DIR into a new DSK-file (see below)

 

I don´t know what all the time happens to my DiskType "3", so I forgot about that and always do a workaround

via SAVE DSK2.bla (my FIAD-directioy), and then I copy this newly generated TIFILE via TI99DIR to a new DSK-file.

 

I think, the problem here was somehow between pasting the pure Basic-Text into a Windows-TXT-file on my harddisk

and copyiing it with TI99DIR into the DSk-file (see dialogue-box as described before, "Program" as filetype, NO 3 words/header)

I think here should be my error....(?)

 

 

 

AMSTEST4 for RXB: (XB AMS Card Query v1.07-951206)

 

AMSTEST4.RXB.dsk

PS: I also have added that to the AMS-list, the XB-version, AND the RXB-version.

Maybe sombody has the pure XB-version for me ? (EDIT: I think I found it on the "AMS-PAUL" now ?)

PS2: Oh yes, to have a GUI-function to swap to DiskType #3 would be really cool :) really :)

.

Yes of course, BUT

 

You might want to rename the file to avoid confusion with AMSTEST4 (A/L version)

 

which file to rename ? And what is the meaning of "A / L" ?

 

 

 

 

Are you going the link the lists to the software in the future? ;) (ducking and running for cover)

Seriously, great job!

 

thanks, but "link list to the software" ? Sorry I do not understand that meaning

Ah, OK. I´ve forgotten to enter the needed cartridges, so E/A also stands for A/L

The name is originally taken from the program, really change the name in the list ?
