Re: Atom user defined colours

Yes , I mean extra registers to change the colourpalette values. I am not interested in other modes but inspired by the VideoNula topic, I just wondered if something like that is possible with the Godil colourpalette. All Atom games in colourmode, have a coloured background while most games in other...

Re: Atom user defined colours

Sounds interesting ..... :)

I looked at the Godil code but how do you define extra addresses?

Re: Atom user defined colours

For the current hardware, you still can choose 1 out of 8 colours, right?
Is luminance also used?

Atom user defined colours

Hi guys, I was just wondering if it is possible to add user defined colours to the Godil. The colour palette is a constant array now but is it possible to add some addresses to the Godil to change the array values? The standard values must be restored after a BREAK. This way you can finally write ga...

Re: Porting Atom under Risc OS

It should be possible but Atom Basic is not as structured as BBC Basic. In the Basic #Cxxx ROM, there's one read at #B001 for reading the status of the ESCAPE key which is hardware depending and should be rewritten. Also not all Basic commands are in the Basic #Cxxx ROM, the commands PLOT, DRAW, MOV...

For autobooting you need a patched Fxxx rom but you can manually boot the AtoMMC rom by linking to #EFC0.
The Floating Point patch is for BRAN, automatic ROM switching software.

Re: I've got an Acorn Atom... Woot Woot :) (changed title (again) :)

But if he did that wouldn't it preclude the use of SDDOS which IIRC is an $E000 ROM? SDDOS is an #Axxx rom so could be used instead of the DISATOM. SDDOS is a standalone rom so doesn't need the AtoMMC rom. You can use an #Exxx version of AtoMMC and an #Axxx version of SDDOS. This way you can direct...

Re: I've got an Acorn Atom... Woot Woot :) (changed title (again) :)

No that doesn't work because the AtoMMC rom and DISATOM are both #Axxx versions.
You could install an #Exxx AtoMMC rom instead of a #Axxx version and place the AtoMMC rom on top.

Hi Phill,

I just had a look at *VIEW and there are some calls to the econet #Axxx rom which make no sense in the 3.50 rom. It could be that this *VIEW was ment to be used with the v3.1 Atom Econet rom as mentioned in the user guide.

Is this on a BBC- or a System 5 fileserver, level 1 or 2 (or higher)?

I'm very interested to see the econet packages that are send, can you monitor the data?
