Re: Easiest way to get RGB out of the MTX?

Keep you posted about what? My adventures in CP/M assembly, or my adventures in VDP World? What I need to do is setup a tool chain under CP/M. Text editor, assembler, debugger. Dave's page has some good starters. Thing is, I'm also after a Tatung Einstein and that is very similar to the MTX, albeit ...

Re: Easiest way to get RGB out of the MTX?

Another stooped question. It says here that CP/M doesn't support graphics. But that doesn't stop me programming the VDP direct does it?

In other words, I could assemble and run a VDP program in CP/M just as easily as I could in ASSEM..

EDASM broken..

Hi all Just tried to load EDASM. It was successful and I could list the program, which looks like a big assembly listing in BASIC. When I tried to run it, I got a blank screen. I think it crashed! How long should it take to initialise? Cheers JonB Edit: this time round I followed the instructions. I...

Re: Easiest way to get RGB out of the MTX?

Does the cpm MTX Basic include ASSEM? That's what I really want on the 80 column display!

Re: Easiest way to get RGB out of the MTX?

I'd be happy with composite, if it could give a better picture. Maybe some new capacitors in the video circuit? The Acorn Atom is the same, once the caps start to fail, the video signal goes wonky. New caps in, and the picture is crisp. Got the REMemorizer on order, but the 80 column output is not u...

Re: Do members like the colour scheme of the forum?

Re: Do members like the colour scheme of the forum?

Hate it, now I am using the forum in anger. See my other (similar thread).. Doh. Thing is, it looks cool on a 30 year old brushed aluminium computer, but not on a screen where you have to read a load of text. My eyes hurt! Compare it with, say, this one: http://stardot.org.uk/forums/ Se what I mean?

Hard to read forum colours

I find this forum very dark and hard to read. It's the red on black colour scheme. Very MTX-like, but not very legible. Any chance of brightening it up a bit? Anyone else got thoughts?
