Re: Using the Wordpak2+ on the Dragon

Looks nice!

Are you able to update the display fast enough to make something playable?

Re: 5.25" floppy disk controller

How generic is the Dragon Floppy Drive in terms of being used with other disk controllers? Meaning would it be possible to connect the DFD to such interface and then use it to write back images to floppies? Quite - standard shugart interface. What that does mean is that if you have an old PC around...

Re: Dragon 32 jumping to buff mode spontaneously?

Having experimented a bit, I can't replicate by tying øA, øB or CHB to various values. While it looks like it's in the other colour set (CSS=1), if it is, that's not the whole story: even in that set, the block by 0 should remain green. Maybe check around the LM1889? (Possibly IC9, can't really read...

Re: A next-generation Dragon?

The CoCo2 plus, a CoCo1/2 clone A good starting point? Would need a bit of redesigning to PAL-ise it, but rethinking that to an add-on board (with maybe some jumpers on the main board to switch between PAL/NTSC signal routing) seems like a good idea anyway. Edit: maybe make the D64 HSync routing bu...

Re: Dragon DOS variants

Can definitely add for SuperDOS E6 that it’s easy to get ?NE ERROR trying to access a file while motor still running (eg DIR then quickly RUN a program).

Meant I used to fill programs that CHAINed each other with calls to CLOSE (IIRC). Out of preference I usually go for DOSplus tho.

Re: Dragon Pepper by Genesis Project - a new Dragon 32 demo

That looks excellent!

I also love the dragons :)

No idea why we don't get even crunchy audio out of emulators, mind.

Re: XRoar on Nintendo DS

It'd be tricky... ISTR there being some unexpected limit on binary size, and of course getting it running fast enough would mean stripping back a lot of things - and re-adding the NDS-specific video and audio code from ye olde days. But if you want a coding challenge, it should all still be there in...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Right! Sorry for not replying to this sooner... Looks like some interaction with the "-type" command needs some thought. The config file reading changes mean you can use double or single quotes and escape characters with backslash. At the moment the "-type" command also interprets some of those char...
