Re: Atomic AGD

Windows 7.

In Camsstudio I selected region so it records the Atomulator window.

IIRC there was an Electron emulator with record option. Also David Boddie did some testing.

Re: Atomic AGD

I haven't build in a decent timer yet to time the frames at 50 Hz but I think this is too optimistic for 1 mHz.
The engine and the sprite routines also have to be optimized but first I want everything working.

Maybe the Z80 copro is an option ....... :roll:

Re: Atomic AGD

Yes I know ...... I'm using CAMstudio on a not so superfast laptop. I record at 50Hz because CAMstudio cannot record at 60Hz. The framerate x capture time must be 1000 and I can only input integers .... :? camstudio.png It would be nice to have a capture option in Atomulator like Wouter Ras his emul...

Re: Connecting a printer to the Atom

If the printer has a centronics connector, it shouldn't be a problem.
You do need IC's 1 and 50 to print.

ASCII won't be a problem but graphics can be because bit 7 is not connected to the printer dataoutput.

If you didn't have the source, a letter of the command was changed by poking another letter direct in the romcode.

Re: Program Power Machine Code Monitor ROM

I do most of the debugging in Atomulator but sometimes use the DISAS (Josbox) and HEX (PCharme) commands. There was also a good monitor program in the 80's written by Roel Heuvel, it's not a rom but many people used it. You can find a description of the commands here: http://www.acornatom.nl/atom_ni...

Re: Program Power Programmer's Toolbox ROM

Well done Dave .... =D>
I think that renaming commands was done when the Atom had a ROM switchboard and Branquart installed.
You don't want the same command names because then you don't know which one is used so you rename them ......

Re: Program Power Programmer's Toolbox ROM

The original ROM should be called at #AF00 and should display the (C) PROGRAM POWER string. This means that versions 6C9E and CB06 aren't original. The state of @ shouldn't be affected so version 1904 also isn't original. Missing the RESTORE command is also wrong so version 0D78 is also changed. Thi...
