Want help: Fold RunCPM Emulation into #FujiNet

Recommended Posts

@tschak909 I am very forgetful. Sorry if I ask more than once. I am a scatterbrain. I don't mean to offend you. I hook it it up to a 1200XL w/ SIO resistor fix ONLY. Rest is stock.

I get Fortress to boot from TNFS server Ras Pi. 64GB card. Direct cable plug in to WRT1900AC.

I used a Win 10 machine to D/L the latest firmware. It looked like it worked.

I still can not boot MOST things I try.

This thing really SUX at this point.

 

I KNOW it can be better.

 

Fortress will not boot again.

 

Very un-reliable at this point. NOT at all being negative, just Reporting.

It's...out there. 

 

Thing is, the guy who currently owns the copyrights has resurfaced, and worked out a deal with Vintage Computer Center to sell the carts, and has explicitly asked not to trade ROM images.

 

You can use DT80, or any other terminal program you wish to use (e.g. IceT).

 

If you use IceT for example, you can jump into CP/M mode by setting 9600 baud, and typing ATCPM.

 

One thing to understand:

 

CP/M was made for many different computers and terminals. So the programs can output many different terminal codes.

 

ICE-T is VT-100, and many of the programs in the big RunCPM archive are installed for VT-100, if you run DT-80, they will need to have the installer run again to re-install them for ADM-3A terminal type.

Flickerterm is good. My main question is: "Will NZ-COM run on this?" NDRs, Aliases, Timestamps, etc?

@tschak909 Can you please point me in the direction of how to select which CP/M system it runs? I want 64 or 60K ZCPR3.

 

Thanks.

That requires building support for that into the firmware. I will make a feature to be able to select the one to run.

No choice of CP/M system yet? That's ok. I am NOT complaining. All I am asking is for you to research and lookup a full blown Z System. It is a Beautiful thing. Named Directories and Time / Date Stamps and much more. Z-System is Powerful.

Oh yes, am very familiar with ZCPR, was a big user BITD. :)

 

it will just need somechanges as the CCP loader is statically built in to RunCPM.

One more thing:

 

I can connect WiFi ONLY if I DON'T have the MicroSD card in.

 

Why?

Thom, I used to have a TeleVideo multi user system. I modified the BIOS [on the server] to support 4 hard drives and patched the Z-System into the Satellites. That's what they called the diskless workstations.

TS-802A. Looks like a typical TVI Terminal. Has High speed RS-422 port on back to connect to TS-806 or TS-816 file server. I also used to have a TS-803, TS-816...

Sadly, many were lost in moves.

 

Look for Blair Groves

Missisauga, ON

 

He is my friend from years ago. I gave him my work on the OS.

P.S.  He has a beautiful cat.
