Re: AMX Mouse Software

What you could try is to take colour in pictures from the web, convert them with the image converter and, load them on a disc to use with AMX art. I did this a while back for my son with pictures from Miffy. Worked quite well. I can try if I have them somwhere if you want them. Bet you can find Wall...

Re: Faulty Master???

Has been a while, but there has been some progress. As described earlier, the AMX Mouse Support ROM is not fully working with some Master systems. Especially when it comes to switchable OSes versions. And what I tried, it always pointed back to the combination of a switchable OS and the ADFS. So wha...

I just pressed CTRL+BREAK after loading it into SWR and *ELITE to run it.
It's a bit buggy though. Found out that it is a basic program in a ROM. Got a disc image with the rom and basic code.

Re: Faulty Master???

Bad sum is an ADFS error where the workspace has been corrupted. If you don't need to use ADFS to run AMX, try unplugging it and see if the problem goes away. Bad contacts on Master ROM cartridges can cause all sorts of havoc as well, give them a clean or try without the cartridge if possible. I'll...

And your ADFS version? And can you switch from MOS version? ADFS 1.53. Yes, same results with MOS 3.2 Alan Thanks! Guess it has to do with the switchable MOS or the ADFS 1.53. The BeebEm uses ADFS 1.50, and the rest of all the rom versions are the same compared to the real Master (so far as I can s...

Re: Faulty Master???

That does not look right, the rom images have not loaded into the SWRAM slots. The *SRLOAD commands should load the 4 rom images into 4-7 so they should appear when you do *ROMS. Make a copy of the boot file, e.g. load into EDIT and save under a new name; then try editing the boot file in to *SRLOA...
