What would cause it NOT to work in ADAM?

Recommended Posts

It works in every Coleco Emulator but as soon as I tried it in a real ADAM nothing...

 

Nothing but a flashing screen in both my ADAM's.

 

It is trying to display my game with the colors so I am not talking about a bad BIOS or ram.

 

It also fail's in an ADAM emulator.

 

 

Everything up till this point has been on the legit.

 

No special calls, Proper defined ram location as far as I know.

 

It is a little over 12k so size is not a problem. (at least that's what I tell my wife)

 

Somebody....anyone....

Do you have a Colecovision or just the computer Adams?

 

If your Adams is a module, unplug it and check if you can play on the console.

It's a game I am programing.

 

Works on Colecovision emulators but I have 2 real ADAM's

 

Both same issues when I try to run it.

He said , "It also fail's in an ADAM emulator." But it works on colecovsion Emulator?

 

Could it be he is using a bad Ram Area , like the mirored one? that would not be mirrored on ADam? or something like that?

I was thinking he was loading it on an ADAM computer other method, disk/tape. If it doesn't load in 8000-ffff area, then the game won't work since the jmp won't work since the address is incorrect place. Which is why I asked what method he was loading the program.

Could not wait till the weekend.

 

Word to the wise, initialize every bit of ram that your program uses so the system doesn't overwrite your data by a single byte.

Thank you for everyone's input. Have it running on real equipment and needless to say, I have to make some drastic changes to make it enjoyable.
