Programmers toolbox rom

Post by John Ferguson » Fri Mar 30, 2018 9:07 pm

Does anyone have a list of the commands for this utility please.

I have the Rom and know how to launch it with link #AFC0 but then I can not take advantage of the built in facilities.

#AFC0 (44992 is decimal) is the start address for ROSS Software Utilities.

(How did you work out the LINK address by the way?)

Here's the manual:
ROSS_Utility.pdf
(1.51 MiB) Downloaded 15 times
Do any of those commands match what you have?
e.g. *TONE 10000,40

What does PRINT $#A000 show?

I'm also interested in the other ROM you have: "M/C Monitor".

Have you found out what this is yet, or managed to run it?

That's the Program Power ROM that Roland posted the manual for earlier in this thread.
