RTC program to display time on menubar ?

Post by exxos » Fri Apr 12, 2019 6:33 pm

I could have sworn the forget me clock had a program to display the clock at the top right hand side of the screen, but I cannot find my original floppy or even remember if it was part of a software package or not. Anyone remember or know about any such program ?

There is also DC Clock, file is attached.

The disk is in a funky format, so you have to run this program:

And once the A: drive window reappears, press 'esc' to refresh the window. Once refreshed, you'll see side B of the disk, and the DC Clock folder.

Not sure how good it is, will have to test on one of my real machines.

Right, finally found the one I was using!!

It's called Areal37.acc, just drop in the root of your boot drive and voila. There are instructions for use, plus other Areal37 software, however that software won't work with FGMCII or clones, you'll need the proper FGMC software for that.

After all the work on the RTC, it would seem fairly silly if I didn't have it lying around somewhere!

Here is a boot floppy image ready to go with the Areal37.acc in place. Just remove the .txt from the end to make it ready.

This also has all you need for setting the FGMCII, activating it at boot and Y2K fixes.

My guide here: http://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/R ... lation.pdf has all the information you need to set the clock, plus some info on TOS 2.06 gotchas.

Can you dump it on this tread, then will be able to find it again ;)

It is in the disk image I just uploaded, but here is just the file on it's own, once again, remove.txt from the end to make it usable.
