Re: [Color Computer] DeskMate 3 Disk Images


Try WakaWaka : telnet to wakawaka.dns2go.com

Be aware that it is not a large pipe, so you often can't get
connected. Keep trying at different times of day.

Go to http://www.hilgraeve.com and download the free upgrade to
connect with. It has better functionality than the one supplied with
Windoze.

Re: Need utility to read Flex-09 floppies.

Hi,

It may not be of help, but I have the Flex "Adaptation Guide" manual for
"Unknown" computers.

I.E. You build a floppy disk controller and then write the bootstrap code
using an example in the manual. A short and very simple boot loader used
only to get started.

Not a easy way to do it when you have just purchased two miss - aligned disk
drives.

Worked much better after dealer replaced the drives.

And on a SYM-1 if you believe it. I have perhaps the only upgrade for the
SYM-1 from the 6502 CPU to the 6809 CPU (Satellite board required).

Then the display and keyboard have to be built and the software written.
(Display was a SYM-(Perhaps 2) and hand wired keyboard)

I never really did anything until I got my first CoCo.

Thanks! Anywhere in particular I should look?

Re: [Color Computer] DeskMate 3 Disk Images


Sorry - senior moment. I was thinking Tandy 1000.

Try RTSI - FTP to www.rtsi.com and look in the OS9 directory. That's
the most likely place.

These are the top level directories:

/OS9
/pub
/RSDOS
/UNIFLEX

If it isn't there, ask here again.

Re: CoCo Sound Chat and a li'l MiniHog news. Was: New game for CoCo3...


Well, for what is worth, I'm finishing a small game in Extended BASIC 
for the CoCo2. When it's done, I'll port it to CoCo3, DOS, Win3.1, and 
if I find a nice BASIC for Linux....
It's something in the stile of the minesweeper. As soon as I think I got 
to version 1.0, I'll upload the source

I'd like better the pinball.
Nobody ever thought about some strategy game in the stile of the X-Com? 
Since there is hardly any "Real time", speed shouldn't be a problem....

Thanks, Neil. I downloaded the indexes and found the images in

I am suspecting that for the Flex+ disk that I have, there is a similar 
solution.

It is a dual format disk.

The disk shows up from Disk Basic with one file named "FLEX+" that does 
the bootstrap.

Either that file must be used instead of the track 0, or it has a loader 
for track 0 on it.

If the this boot method does use track 0, it may not be important to 
have it's contents to get a boot to work.  Otherwise, it gives me a 
program that knows how to read a sector of that track from BASIC.

I Can modify that to copy the track separately to a BASIC disk and then 
copy that file to the PC.

I then can reconstitute it, and then see what it will take to get an 
emulator to read it.

Art Flexer hangs out at the Coco maltedmedia list and will see your

I don't know if messages posted at maltedmedia will get back here so

Rally-X for CoCo 3!!!

Nick!

Rally X was one of my favorite arcade games in the 80s.  On the VIC-20 
we had Radar Rat Race (same thing) so I expect a CoCo could do it 
easily.  Wasn't there a version for the CoCo at some point?

Hmmm...  It would be neat to do some kind of networked game to have 
ready for the next CoCoFest.

And Nick ... ever think of making some of your routines into callable 
libraries for use from CBASIC, BASIC, or ASM?

cocodisk, a program recovered from 1993.

I wrote a program back in 1993 to transfer files from Disk Basic to my 
Tandy 2000.

I discovered a while back that it could do directory listings under 
Windows NT 4.0, but could not write files.  Subsequent tests showed 
problems under Windows 95.

This weekend I was able to rebuild it using Symantec C++, and it seems 
to work on Windows 95 and Windows 98.  It would not work on Windows 2000.

The recompile exposed a few bugs that the earlier Quick C compiler did 
not detect.

On my test system, it sometimes is getting seek errors on the 3.5 inch 
floppy drive.

I have only tested this version on a 3.5 inch floppy.  I do not know if 
it will work with a 5.25 drive.

The 1.1 version is available for a while at:

http://encompasserve.org/~malmberg/coco/cocodisk_dos.exe.

Free for use.  I am not releasing the C source at this time.  It is too 
much of a mess, and I plan to restructure it as I move forward.

So Enjoy.  And let me know what platforms that it works on.

This program only knows about 35 track floppies.  Not exactly true, it 
should handle 40 track floppies, or what ever size that the gran table
