NitrOS-9 native support for Dragon Plus

Hey all,

this week I added the native 80 column support for NitrOS-9. No need to use old OS-9 with kludge go80 patching schemes. You just boot straight into 80 columns and you can use super IDE, SDC whatever.

See it running on my Tano Dragon Plus.

Re: NitrOS-9 on Dragon 32 (unmodded)

This is cool but I'm afraind there isn't much ram for anything :) can you format a disk ?

The dragon 64 message is hard coded in the SysGo I guess. Need to create a specific one for dragon32.

It's a strobe line. And IRRC when Q goes hight E is already high.

You guys must see the V9958 card. It's amazing: Showing up to 19 thousands simultaneous colours on screen and hardware sprites and hardware scrolling :)

Re: Dragon 32 system/user stack...

The CLEAR X,Y command sets the string storage (X) and the basic hi-mem (Y). So, before the string storage comes the stack. But it's not X - Y for the stack, there is the basic working area after the stack for string pointers and lengths.

Re: Tano Dragon 64 NTSC to PAL ?

On Cocos the big capacitors are all glued to avoid this.

Great to hear that you have fixed that.
