Re: Possibly hundreds (?) of new games for the MTX

Just to confirm, not only did the download work, the fixes do too. While testing, I ran the MTXplus at various speeds, obviously faster is better, but subjectively, at 4mhz, M576ZVM seems a lot faster than CPMZVM, far more so that the 30% less cycles figure would suggest. It probably makes the diffe...

Re: Possibly hundreds (?) of new games for the MTX

The new one worked a treat. (6 partial downloads of the other version deleted!)

Re: Possibly hundreds (?) of new games for the MTX

I can't get the Zip to download, it starts, but immediately stops with 0 bytes downloaded, and the message "this file could not be downloaded"

Re: Possibly hundreds (?) of new games for the MTX

The comma issue with AMFV and M576ZVM is fixed. Good work :D amfv with commas.jpg But I've found another "issue" with loading and saving if I enter "save", the game produces a "Filename" prompt, and waits for the name to be input. When inputting "restore" to reload, the prompt is input in the wrong ...

Re: Possibly hundreds (?) of new games for the MTX

OK for clarity CPMZVM.COM gives the "correct" output
M576ZVM.COM is the version that prints 8e instead of a comma.

Re: Possibly hundreds (?) of new games for the MTX

Real MTX tests: The 62 column display on the CFX causes display issues, which is hardly unexpected, it's scrolling far more than the interpreter expects. It's not unplayable though. AMVF on CFX.jpg The ROTT board I build last year is basically a CFX with a full memory map, so I was able to test the ...

Re: Possibly hundreds (?) of new games for the MTX

The 191230 version fixes the issues with AMFV, it's now accepting commands. amfv new version.jpg Since the datafile for AMFV is "only" 256k, I set the MTXplus to it's maximum for CPM of 448k and was able to run the virtual memory version. It seems to have trouble with commas as it's printing 8e inst...

Re: Possibly hundreds (?) of new games for the MTX

I finally had a chance to try this, on the MTX plus, where I had the CPU running at 10.67mhz to ease some of the response issues Sometime back in the early 90s I brought Lost Treasures of Infocom volume 2, so I ran some tests using the original data files. Loading AMFV looked promising AMFV loading ...

Re: Another Home-Brew - Z180

If you want the "I made that" satisfaction, there's always the matrix board route. With the components on one side and wires on the other, it looks quite neat too. I use Kynar wire for hook-up, since it's simple to just melt the insulation when doing a multi point path like the data bus. Because it'...
