IC18 (marked as IC34 on D64 PCB) is the 32K mode BASIC ROM, and IC17 (marked as IC37 on D64 PCB) is the 64K mode BASIC ROM.

As promised the exclusive CF image for Dragon/Tanos:

There is a lot of coco2/3 stuff on it, but from 100 - 131 we have dragon dos disks converted to rs-dos. So you can play moon cresta, back track, chuckie egg direct from SuperIDE.

Also two OS-9 flavours: os-9 2.0 phoenix (for old games) and nitrOS-9 2.3.9

Enjoy

Cool! Thanks for sharing.
Is your amazing SideKick file browser (Dragon version) also in there?

Thanks! 8-)

When I click on the link to download cf_dragon.img.7z it swaps it for a file named iLividSetup-r157-n-bf.exe (claimed to be a download manager :o ). Where is the link to download only the cf_dragon.img.7z file directly?

Great collection!
OS9 2.0 is great as it leaves enough memory for applications like Dynacalc (which is on drive /I0/Apps ).
Note that I had to comment out line 1080 in autoexec.bat in order to boot OS9 and NitrOS9 from the menu. Without it I kept getting an ERROR message.

That's because you're using my old .rom file. Use the one provided in the .zip or inside disk 250 (TANOLBA.ROM) ready to be burn using FLASH.BAS on a real coco. Sorry, flash bin crashes on tano/dragons.

The new rom is using the last pulls from toolshed commits and uses a different address for some variables. SideKick won't work with the old rom.

You can make shortcuts typing:

BUILD DYNACALC
CHD /I0/APPS/DYNACALC
CHX /I0/APPS/DYNACALC/CMDS
EX DYNACALC </TERM
<PRESS ENTER>

Then just type DYNACALC on root dir.
