Jason and I converted a couple of ps2 mice at the ABug meet at the weekend so this is a good opportunity to test them out fully! Will I need the rom or does the software handle the mouse automatically?

The previous dumps were all DSD but both sides were identical, so redumped them all as SSD, and added the following:
- AMX Art
AMXArt.jpg
- AMX Super Art
AMXSuperArt.jpg
- AMX Pagemaker
- AMX Pagemaker Fonts

Unable to redump 3D Zicon as disc has gunged my drives :(

You will also need the ROM. I'd recommend at least version 3.31, see http://mdfs.net/System/ROMs/Pointer/

Cheers! I gave i a try earlier today but the master didn't like the ROM I'd chosen. I'll give the ROM you mentioned tomorrow.

Hi guys,

Has anyone had any luck with the disk images supplied above? AMX SuperArt just goes into an infinite load-and-reboot loop, and AMX PageMaker fails with a bad command error.

(Using BeebEm to emulate a Master 128, with AMX ROM 361 from JGH's site installed.)

These versions are BBC only, there is a Master version of Super Art at viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2163&p=15522. For PageMaker you'll need the ROMs.

Thanks for that!

If I load the AMX Super Art Master.ssd disk with the same config (Master 128, AMX ROM 3.61, AMX ticked on in BeebEm menu) then I get an error of "Pointer switched off at line 2025". Have you seen that before?

No, because I followed the instructions onscreen:

Code: Select all

*BASIC
*|
*|     Master BBC Boot File
*|
*|  If roms loaded then chain !MENU
X%=&70:Y%=0:A%=64:!&70=-1:CALL &FFF1
IF !&70<>-1 THEN CHAIN "!MENU"
*|
*|     Load in Roms
*|
*SRLOAD RomI 8000 W Q
*SRLOAD Support 8000 X Q
*SRLOAD RomD1 8000 Y Q
*SRLOAD RomD2 8000 Z Q
*|
*|    Press <CTRL> <BREAK>
*|  followed by *POINTER ON
*|  and <CTRL> <BREAK> again

I don't get those instructions. For me, it goes as far as the "CHAIN "!MENU"" line, then I get the error about the Pointer being switched off. :(

Ah, sorted it! I was making a point of installing the ROM into a slot with BeebEm (because that's what I remember doing for real when I had SuperArt on a model B many years ago) which was confusing the later *SRLOAD stuff. I didn't realise that the Master version just had the ROMs as images to go straight into sideways RAM.

All working now - thanks for your patience!

Does anyone have AMX XAM? I believe that is the only package that we don't have to complete the set.

Edit: Added scans of discs above.

Anyone have anything to add to this collection?

My disc images of Pagemaker are actually Pagemaker+ and only work with the Pagemaker+ 1.7 ROMs. I have ROMs for Pagemaker 1.0 and Pagemaker+ 1.3 but no floppies to go with them. Also still looking for floppies for Stop Press (Beeb and Elk) and XAM.

Thanks for those, but can't get it to run. Tried in both a B with ROMs loaded and a Master using the Master Downloader, both give Bad Command at the Control Menu trying to issue *pMouse. What am I missing?

I'm not sure...
After the prolonged title sequence "TITLES", I'm prompted to press any key for mouse/keyboard control and I'm then presented with the main menu "MENU"
*pMOUSE from the > prompt has no issues either :roll:
AMX STOP PRESS MAIN MENU.png
That's using BeebEM 4.14 in BBC Master 128 mode, running the Master Downloader and having

Code: Select all

AMX STOP PRESS 1.9
(C) Tecnation 1984-1987
appear in *HELP
