Re: TOS after 32 years - what could be done better ?

More bad discovered - sorry, but it is good to know why and when some things happen, and to be prepared for ... There is max total 14 partitions limit in TOS - letters C-P. So, something like R is disabled ? Not really, you can have such partition if driver SW mounts it, and when you click on it to ...

Re: TOS max 14 partitions (logical drives) limit

It's not low TOS versions only . Even TT TOS 3.06 has same, 512 MB limit.
I talked mostly about case when more than 1 media is attached. How to solve file transfers.

TOS max 14 partitions (logical drives) limit

It is known that TOS can handle max 14 hard disk partitions (logical drives) in range C-P . That should be enough for normal usage, but there are cases when more would be welcome - I guess in first place when you have 2 cards inserted in UltraSatan, and total count of partitions is over 14. My drive...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

I need to say again, this are just early test versions, to clarify some things. I'm still in grey area with many things. Made progress about entering characters with Alt key. Here is updated Spanish v. : 14ES2.ZIP Note: do not test anything else except keyboard input with some editor SW . This shoul...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

I will not bother with some patchers when I have disassembled ASM source of 1.04. Just looked German v. - it has extra code starting at same loc. as Spanish, and it must be something for entering special characters when Alt is held down. 90 bytes plus, so I need only to disasm that part and add it t...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

It was based on " I never liked the black text on white screen thing... could this be changed easily for white (or grey) text on black background? I know this looks like DOS...." It's easy to make it inverted while logo is displayed, without swapping palette. Actually, I need always to invert all it...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

I think that word patch is overused. It is with games updated for hard disk run - in some cases there are patches, for sure, but in my case most of it is on special TOS in RAM environment - that's used in some 65 % of games, since that's percentage of games using TOS calls. Klapauzius used something...
