Playing the Hobbit on a Dragon 32 (expanded) via DW

Post by pser1 » Thu Sep 22, 2016 3:10 pm

this are two images of my Dragon 32 expanded with the +32k by Tormod Volden.
I have changed the internal ROM IC17 by a new one that contains the DLOAD
command modified to talk to DW servers.
With the help of that ROM I do load a Special program that installs the HDB-DOS
in my Dragon32+32. The loaded HDB-DOS is the port that Tormod made from
the CoCo one to the Dragon.
This way, it switches to MAP1 and maps the extra ram from $8000-$FEFF
Once HDB-DOS isstarted I can access the drives 0-1-2 ... from my DW server
where I have loaded the Hobbit for Dragon & Drivewire and the images ...
Then just LOADM"H1DW":EXEC (yes, CoCo syntax on a Dragon!)
