Mechatronic 80 Column Card (Side Card)

Recommended Posts

To test Multiplan with the "TIMP" disk (meaning that the Multiplan module is searching for DSK.TIMP. which

means that the disk can be in any of the diskdrive (DSK1. DSK2. DSK3. etc.)

 

I wanted to use the nanoPEB  (as TIPI is not be able to emulate a .dsk / image)

 

However I am facing issues, see the video here:

Here is another disk with tools of Ton Brouwer, but I did not figured out yet

how to get these programs to work (it seems that the TIWALT Extended Basic program is having an error)

and there is a Script file with a sequence to load object files, but I cannot remember how to use it with UTIL commands.

1111 = >1000   Used by TIPI (on 32K of Jedimatt) / Hard & RAM drives

1110 = >1100   TI / Corcomp / Myarc FDC / Atronic CPS9900 (Floppy Disk Controller)

1101 = >1200   Mechatronic 80 Column Card

1100 = >1300   RS232-1/2

1011 = >1400   128 KByte Speichererweiterung mit Centronicsschnittstelle  (128K Memory Expansion with Centronics Interface)

1010 = >1500   RS232-3/4

1001 = >1600

1000 = >1700  Hexbus (for TI-99/8 and CC-40 and similar)

0111 = >1800

0110 = >1900  Myarc 512k Memory

0101 = >1A00

0100 = >1B00

0011 => 1C00

0010 => 1D00  Triple Tech Clock  (CorComp)

0001 => 1E00  SAMS (Memory)

0000 => 1F00  P-Code  (UCSD Pascal)

 

Some things to note:  If there is not an RS232 card at >1300, but there is one at >1500, it responds as RS232-1/2.  The Myarc 512k card responds at >1000 and >1900 and its memory is paged into the 32k space, thus no other 32k containing card should be used with it.

Interestingly, while checking this, I found an obviously long-standing typo (6+ years) in MAME which made it impossible to switch the CRU base. You can now (next release) insert two RS232 cards and configure their CRU bases in the OSD. And yes, it proves the mentioned handling of a single card at 1500.

(I came along this, I did not validate it with the cable I made last time,

but also @fabrice montupet mentioned that the audio have to be on certains

PINs on the SCART interface to get audio).

@globeron Appreciate the dump.  That is a lot of images across a number of posts.  Could you Zip all that up into a single file and post for download?
