Nitros9 quick screen questions.

Quick question...

How do you change screen modes/colors in Nitros9?

It boots 80 col, black on green.

I'd like to be able to go to 40 or 32 col, and maybe white on black or vice versa.

I can't read crap currently.....

(Coco3, 6809, running off a coco sdc, with the latest download version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/nitros9/files/releases/v3.3.0/)

CoCo Joystick -> USB project

I found this yesterday:

I figure that there must be someone dying to do some PC-based gaming with
a CoCo joystick!  Well, maybe with an emulator... :-)

does any one have a bad  multi pak interfate  that  would be willing to sell there cases  looking 
for  both  the 3024 and 3124    cases must be in great shape

does any one know of a good  composite video board that's east to do  for  coco 2's

Coco [OT] Circuit Prototyping

Although this is likely to be of limited use, thought that some of you may
find it interesting.  A single sided circuit printer using a conductive ink
which also places SMD components using a conductive glue.

I'd think that $200 of ink/glue is expensive for 50 boards, yet the guick
prototyping may be useful... but, you'd have to factor in the sheet
resistance of "87.5 mOhms / sq".

For the limited stuff I "play around with", I'll stick with breadboarding.

How SLENB works ?

Hi all,

I decided to play with arduino + coco but I need to know exactly how the
SLENB works. As I can see in the schematics it's connected to the 74SL138
pin 6. This means when SLENB is LOW all the 138 outputs will be HIGH. But
what is the practical effect of this, will the coco wait for the cartridge
before doing anything ?

Thanks,

Luis Felipe Antoniosi

In and out of the Coco (OT but not OT)


Hi guys,
I will be pausing my Coco software projects for a while as I've got a few recording sessions to work on here in
my studio, and the acoustic duo I'm recording wants me to join up and make a trio. We then plan to eventually
add a drummer and bass player for a full band. These guys are already an established act, so the shows (for
the most part) are already booked.
Between the recording, learning the new material for the acoustic trio, and preparing for the full band, my
time will be limited. I have about 35 songs to learn (or in some cases, re-learn) before the first gig. We
will be performing 2-4 nights a week, rehearsing 2-3 nights a week and I'll be spending the rest of the time
learning songs, and programming MIDI light show sequences. We'll be using a MIDI "click" track to play to
so that a light sequence can be programmed in time with the music for each song. The click track will include
shakers, bongos, congas etc, to give something to keep time to so we don't lose the song.
If I had a RasPI, I would set up a Coco with NOS9 and Ultimuse3 to do the MIDI stuff for me. If it gets rolling (and
it will), I'll probably do just that. Controlling the lights from Ultimuse3 is easy stuff, the click track
sequencing even easier.
If I do end up using the Coco for this, I'll make a video of it and post it on youtube.
Now to see if my little Apple green screen monitor made it through the floods... I used this when I used the
Coco before (90s) in my acoustic shows. Small and compact. And with a raspi, I wouldn't need a drive or PC
server. I could stick it in the Coco and have dw4 on the raspi.
I will still be checking in on the list to see what's going on, and if I get free time, work on my projects. But I
won't miss a chance to do one of the few things I love to do more than tinker with the Coco, and that's play
music :-)
It's what I do best.

So I'll be in and out of the Coco scene for a while, but still available on the list.

Ebay chuckle for the day

Among many I must say. Was running through the suggested items list and
found quite an amusing selection of clueless/greedy/ID10T sellers... like
one individual selling a 3004 CoCo 1 for $499.99 (accept offers though, I
wonder...).

This one was the cherry on top of the icing: Demon Attack cart. No manual,
no box, not tested... a bargain!

Xroar + Windows 8 = zero

Well, gents,
I've been trying to run the precompiled version of Xroar on my Windows 
8.1 machine.

The programme starts fine, and using the mouse, I can use the menu 
system, but clicking on something like "Insert disk" is ignored.
I do not have MinGW installed on this computer (would it even work?) Is 
there a way around this? Is there a revision coming up?

a not very important drivewire question

I just noticed today my drivewire HDBDOS will not accept command DRIVE 
#255, gives me an FC error.  0 - 254 are fine.  I guess I figured any 
byte value would work.  Any explanation why 255 not allowed?
