WTB: MTX-512, Floppy + RS232 for PLATOTERM dev.

Post by tschak909 » 13 Jul 2019 19:58

Hi,

I am currently in the process of porting PLATOTERM, the terminal emulator for IRATA.ONLINE, to the MTX-512.

I want to buy the following for dev testing:

* MTX-512
* Disk Drive
* RS-232-C add-on

Please let me know if anyone here has such a setup they are willing to sell (or let me borrow), the port is done, I just need to debug the serial routines in the program (given to me by Andy Key)

Thanks,
-Thom

I think you'll have rather more luck with the emulator than finding actually hardware - especially floppy disk hardware ! At least unless you have a very large budget.

memu can emulate the serial port although it would need a little bit of hacking in dart.c to make it open a socket to irata instead. Not much though.

Or, if running on Linux, point MEMU at named pipes, and have a program on the other end talk to Plato.

Hardware can be hard to find and expensive, but there may be options.
