Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

Here is it in Spanish: 14ESVI1.ZIP I replaced RSCs, initial Desktop.inf , keyboard tables to those from Spanish 1.04 . It may be that something plus about Alt key will be necessary. Please test for correct keyboard input - with some text editors if possible . Note, this is just test version, not com...

Re: TT Software overscan?

sometimes ago I did some tests and a classic ST sync-code works fine on the TT: lea $ffff8209.w,a1 sync move.b (a1),d0 beq.b sync not.b d0 lsl.b d0,d0 Thanks to that, we can get stable raster on the TT. Therefore there is a chance that software overscan could be reached. It is not dilemma here that...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

I looked Spanish TOS 1.04 . Longer than English - no wonder, they use 'CONFIRMAR' instead 'OK', and that's on many places. As remembered, not everything is translated - OUT OF INTERNAL MEMORY .... SYSTEM HALTED *** is same, and for sure in all other language versions. I need to run over complete 192...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

I'm not at home to check right now.. but if its a RSC file, couldn't it simply be swapped for other TOS104 RSC files ? Yes, just need to extract those other RSC files from other language TOS versions. Assuming that order of objects is same, it will work. And, since Desktop Info is in RSC file too, ...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

Yes, somewhere in 1993 I translated TOS 2.06 based on German v. - as said because text is usually longest in German. There were no sources then, and now situation is little better. I have well disassembled TOS 1.04 and 1.62. I learned some things in all those years. Most important is that some 98% o...

Re: TOS105 ROM

I plan to put this updated Desktop in all versions. And boot progress indicators too. This is actually not real 1.05 - just demonstration/test version how it looks. People may see better how TOS handles RAM allocations.

Re: TOS105 ROM

Here are 2 YT videos where can see what new is in - considering boot flow and added memory usage values in Desktop Info. https://youtu.be/r3SSagYt-ec https://youtu.be/SlumPA1967g Second one is with running game starting from AUTO folder. This should be final updates (well, logo must be not red :) ) ...

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

Well, I looked little about that lost piece of RAM after exiting some APP. Overall, code for RAM allocation and free is is pretty messy. When you start *.TOS it adds 14 bytes to basepage start address, where stays for me useless 'PATH= ..' . When start *.PRG, it adds much more, for AES workspace nee...

The roots of bad knowledge, using not proper SW

Some here would say: "Google is evil" :D So, I typed 'atari corp' in Google, looking for some good and simple logo, what can use in TOS mods, and got this page as third hit: https://www.emuparadise.me/Atari_ST_ROMs/ST_Tour_(19xx)(Atari_Corp.)[a]/119066 Don't know why I did not exit immediately, inst...

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

Didn't people complain how TOS 2.06 boots too slow, and asking to make it faster. Then I removed some tests there ... Now you asking for more tests in TOS 1.xx :lol: OK, I agree that it may be useful, especially this years when machines are very old. But there is RAM test in all TOS versions, surely...
