[coco] USB to RS232 adapter

  I'm working on connecting my coco to this PC and I've read that some 
of these adapters are better than others.
  Does anyone have some suggestion/experience with these things and what 
works best?

new release: RGB Monitor Test v1.0

Hello,

I have recently been working on some Sony PVM broadcast monitors that I picked
up for use with my Coco and Commodore machines, and I thought that it would be
nice to have a tool for conveniently generating video test patterns for
calibration and testing of the monitors.  So this weekend I wrote one.

It has a few different modes: a 64-color matrix (for setting RGB levels,
brightness, contrast), dots and lines (for setting geometry, convergence), and
solid color (for purity).  You can change the colors (red, green, blue, white)
and the width/spacing in the geometrical modes.  I have a ZIP file for people
to download:

http://www.fascinationsoftware.com/media/Coco3_RGB_Monitor_Test_v1.0.zip

This contains two DSK images.  RGB200 runs with the 320x200 resolution, and
RGB225 runs with the 320x225 resolution.

The 225-line version fits perfectly in my CM-8 display.  In addition to using
this with real CRTs, it is also nice for developing and testing the VGA
converters like Roy's or Luis's.

Richard

More updates for the CMOC compiler

Hi folks,

A few updates on the CMOC C-like cross-compiler. Version 0.1.8 is out.
Here are the highlights since 0.1.4:

- Added the --check-stack option to have CMOC insert run-time checks
  for stack overflows.

- Added a sprintf() function.

- Support for slightly different versions of the C preprocessor.

- A few more optimizations on the generated code.

- Several small bugs fixed.

- More topics covered in the manual.

- A precompiled .deb package for Ubuntu systems is available.

I have also published a new version of nobasic.c, now with support
for reading disk sectors. This program puts the CoCo in all-RAM
mode, moves itself to the top of the RAM, and shows a counter
being incremented by the 60 Hz IRQ. The second part of the demo
loads the first sector of the directory and shows it raw on the
screen. This is done with a relocatable DSKCON routine based on
the one in Disk Basic.

This demo can be useful as a starting point to write a RAM-hungry
program that does not want to keep Basic around just for disk access.

totally mad !

Hey Guys...

i took my tunnel routine (sg12) and decided to run some plasma through it -
worked out nicely, so i decided to plug in the 2 voice 58 byte player i
cooked earlier this year....

this is the 1st pass at that (please go easy on me here) - it needs speeding
up again, but it DOES prove a point !

CocoSD archive question

Hey all,

I finally got my CocoSD running with my Coco 3, although I haven't gotten
any software organized for the SD card.  A few questions:

Has anyone compiled all the archived Coco software into one giant zip file
for convenient downloading?

I was hoping to use cartridge and cassette images in addition to disk
images- is there an easy way to do that easily with the CocoSD?

Thanks!

ian

Best cartridge game?

At my annual 4th of July party this year in addition to the usual pinball, arcade machines, air hockey, and
Skee-Ball, I’m going to be putting out a bunch of my retro computers. One of the ones I want to put out is the
CoCo 3. I don’t have a joystick or any game cartridges for it, but I do have a CoCoEPROMpak and a CoCoSDC.
While the CoCoSDC is fine for me since I don’t have a problem typing commands, I think at a party it will be
too “technical” and require too much instruction for people to use. I was thinking that maybe I could
put a single game on the CoCoEPROMpak so that just turning on the computer will bring up a game.

If you wanted to show off the CoCo to people that have never seen one before, what one cartridge game would you
pick? Something that doesn’t need a joystick because I don’t think I’ll have time to cobble
something together.
