WHAT MANNER OF UNHOLY WIZARDRY IS THIS?

Get the DSK image "ADV2" in this page.

http://sites.mpc.com.br/ric/cp400/eadv.htm

Now load the BASIC program called "#" and list it, don't run.

It gets the address of the end of the BASIC program, subracts 6 and
JUMPS TO IT! And an INTERACTIVE DISK MENU POPS OUT OF NOWHERE!

What is going on here?

(Unrelatedly, it seems HDB-DOS can't LOAD or LOADM files with
"n:FILENAME.EXT" syntax. It gives me a ?FN ERROR.)

Rainbowfest Photo

I finally found the photo of Bob Rosen and I at the Fort Worth Texas Rainbowfest. It is undoubtedly one of the
worst photos of me ever taken.

Why oh why didn’t I get a haircut before this show?

CoCo2 Video Output

I recently obtained a new 64k CoCo2 to add to my collection. The members pf
this list have helped me to get a better composite video (eliminating he TV
modulator). Now I want to hook it up to a Commodore 1702 color moniyot. The
1702 supports a separate Audio, Luminance and Chroma. So I am looking to
the list again for to find out of the CoCo2 can support that output and how
to obtain it.

Thanks

Re: eBay 6309 chips

Kip,

Indeed 6809 chips are more precious than they used to be, but so is the pc board you are removing they from.

If want to try to salvage them without investing in the "proper" tools here is a couple of tricks I have used in
the past.

Before unsoldering add a bit of solder (Radio Shack's is OK)to each pin. Typically your solder will have a
lower melting point than the solder used on the pc board.  The new solder will mix with the old lowering its
melting point.

Next use a "pro" quality desoldering wick (not RadioShacks or use a liquid flux with it) and remove as much
solder as possible.

Sometimes this is all that will be need. Use the desoldering iron if necessary, overheating can damage the
chip and/or the pc board. A lifted pc trace is permanent damage, while a 6809 can still be replaced.

Good luck.

stupid question, but the manual doesn't say

I have a shell script that I want to pass a value to. If I type the
script-file name and press enter, then enter the value I want, everything
is good, but if I type the script-file name with the value as a parameter,
I get a bad pathname error (215). To recap:

OS9:script-file
value

works.

OS9:script-file value

bad pathname

What is the correct form? Below is my script-file.

var.1
del %1Raw.txt
del %1Lines.txt
del %1Vars.txt
del %1VDT.txt
del %1DSAT.txt
del %1.B09

[Color Computer] Vcc OS-9 keyboard mapping

i have taken the plunge and installed Vcc v1.42 (don't need DW yet) on my laptop and have booted up Nitros9
v3.3 and all is well. Set my time, dir'd my 80 track disk image (cant seem to get the .vhd recognized, but hat
is for a later date), mdir'd what's loaded and see the /w# drivers so started up a shell i=/w5& and it looks
like it did it except when i went to press the [CLEAR} key to swap to it... where is the [CLEAR] key?

i searched the net for but did not find anything to tell me what the Vcc Basic or OS-9 keyboards maps to the
"modern" laptop keys. Could someone point me in the right direction?

-thanks, jerry

King's Quest IV Update

Hi guys,

For those interested, I have fixed several issues in King's Quest IV. Thanks 
to Robert Gault and Tormod Volden for helping me fix a few bugs in the 
Sierra AGI interpreter. Here's the complete list of changes:

- fixed visual priority issues with Rosella, the main character
- fixed background picture in room with the cemetary and the stone crypt
- fixed garbled dialogs in the sequence just before Rosella's wedding with 
Edgar
- added the "beam me" and "rap kq" easter eggs from KQ4 version 2.0
- updated the savegame disks for quick access to the easter eggs
- updated to the latest Nitros9 release (3.3.0)
- added the Becker Port version

You can download the update from the TRS-80 Color Computer Archive at:

http://www.colorcomputerarchive.com/coco/Disks/Games/King's%20Quest%20IV%20(Sierra%20On-Line).zip

I will also update all Sierra games to Nitros9 3.3.0 shortly.

Enjoy!

Guillaume
