Carina II, RoboWar II

Recommended Posts

Hopefully the hang-over wasn't too bad :)

Unfortunately, the memory issues have nothing to do with that. That's a life thing. :(

After re-constructing MAIN, ROBOEDIT and ROBOWAR, I have found some errors in those files. As soon as Tillek can get me what he has we'll know for sure.

 

I modified ATR Tools by adding a "Detokenize on Demand" feature where you can click on a character in a file using the "View as Binary" option after "View File" (to get the variables used) and then it will show you the detokenized result of a single line.

 

It's not a complete restore / fix yet, but with a little help, we'll get there :)

I'm copying it now... sorry for the delay.

 

My place is so disorganized right now (getting it organized this holiday weekend ended up being an epic fail) and I can't find the original disks... but I'm copying it from the working MODSEC. It includes my simple menus, so MAIN.TXT is the main menu A is the MAIN from Robowar.

 

I'm also including Zenobia. It'll be on a HD partition ATR... (I'm still cloudy on file transfer between the A8 and PC... it's been awhile but it will come back to me).

Ok... Let me know if this works for you. As soon as I can track down the original RoboWar disks, I can archive those for you as well. (They're here somewhere, I've seen them recently but I boxed up a bunch of stuff to try to make some space to organize the junk).

 

It's a 16mb HD image ATR so if that doesn't work let me know.

For anyone interested.... the Veteran Adventurer's Guild can be reached (for now) at bbs.sfhqbbs.org port 4444.

 

It's not 100% where I want it, but it's stable enough for people to call. Enjoy!

 

The games are in a sig called "The Arena" (keyword games).

Tillek, you should post this in the BBS section as well

I think it's a safe bet that since this thread has been towards the top long enough, anyone who cares enough to actually call has already been following it.

 

Plus it's silly to really promote it on a temporary address.

For anyone who was interested but got a problem with validating your email address......

 

I fixed the bug so it won't do that anymore. (Originally, that was your "real" address field... which had to be 20 characters or more to "validate", so I fixed that).

 

Thanks to those who have checked it out.

I am having this strange corruption issue with WAITCALL. I use xedit to disable MOE's fiddling with cursor controls, make the changes, and save it. Do I need to reboot without MOE to make changes?

 

WTF?????

 

See attached pic for example of corruption. I used my iPhone to take a pic of the real monitor, this is not emulation.

 

Keep in mind that I have not yet received the RTime8 that I ordered yet. This is really strange.

Edit: Look at line 25002 and 30000. I hit break when I saw the first F<ctrl-Q>K sequence. Upon further inspection, there is the same strange string in 30155 twice.

 

Could my original files be corrupted, is this a MOE/clock thing, or possibly hardware?

 

Ideas welcome.

It looks like the Variable Name Table has been modified or corrupted. Is this Carina 2.6 or 2.7?

Couldn't hurt to post the Waitcall file too for verification...

There's lots of it all over.

 

I'm going to back to square one with this to be certain nothing else is damaged. I'm going to replace all files in >MODULE> with originals, then try to remember what all I had to do to make it work with LANTronix.

I'm interested in running a Carina II BBS using the Atari800MacX emulator.....  How can I get a working emulator copy of Carina II? And what would the preference settings be for said emulator?

Carina 2.7 atrs, which are disks 1, 2, & 7. These atrs are set up for D1, D2, & D7 which can be  changed with some editing. I believe D7 was setup as a backup disk for the password file etc..

There is also a pdf of the manual here as well. - https://archive.org/details/CarinaIIBBSManual

As for this working on a Mac i couldn'ty tell ya.

Good luck

I grabbed those Carina 2.7 disks...  Thank you.... 

 

Also, that link to the BBS Software is pretty much useless. All the software is "unavailable".

Now, we just need to find source code for M.O.E.

 

Are Jerry Horanoff or David Hunt still around?

 

There is some kind of carrier detect issue with M.O.E.

 

If I do this:

 

100 STATUS #2,X:?PEEK(747):GOTO 100

 

The value changes depending if I have an active telnet connection to the Lantronix (as it should).

 

but

 

If I have M.O.E. turned on, it never changes. Carina never sees carrier so it sits at the wait screen.

 

Has anyone gotten Carina to work with telnet?

I got Carina working with a Lantronix UDS1100 and a UDS2100.  You need to make some changes to waitcall.  Now I've got it working with FujiNet, which is a lot better.

As for Jerry, he's around on the 'net.  I asked him if he had source code for Moe and he said probably not, but even if he did, we need to go through Dave Hunt (The Shadow) as he is the one who owns the rights.

 

I'm working on getting in touch with Dave.

 

Best,

 

Jeff

I was able to get in touch with Dave before I put up TVAG mostly to "ask his blessing".

 

He said he was fine with anyone running it and distributing the archive but made it clear he didn't really want anything more to do with it.  I even asked  him a simple question later about whether the ANSI was fully implemented since on my copy it looked like it was, but then disabled within the code... I never got a response.

The archives I've downloaded for Robowar are corrupt.  Any link to good ones?

 

Best,
