Re: EightBall - New Programming Language

Right now I am interpreting the text directly, which is slow. However it is quite convenient to be able to load and save ASCII files and exchange them between systems this way (with some help from petcat!) I am planning on moving to a tokenized representation, which should speed things up. I am also...

EightBall - New Programming Language

I have been doing a bit more work on my little programming language interpreter project and thought that maybe it was time to let some other people play with it. This started out as a VIC-20 project (VICScript) but now supports C64 and Apple IIe/c as well. Accordingly I renamed it to EightBall "...

Re: Cannot load cassettes

I think that is a symptom of a bad VIA (6522) chip. Maybe try swapping the two and see if it causes other issues (for example keyboard problems). If so, it is a bad VIA.

Re: 486's that valuable??

I guess I really like the idea of all those expansion slots in the //e! I had a II+ for many years as a kid. The //c is nice, but the slots are a big part of what the Apple II is all about IMO. (Also all the //c machines I see these days are very yellow, while the //e I just bought looks to be prist...

Re: VIC20 ROM Cart Loader (in BASIC)

Omega Race *seems* to run OK without setting BLK5 read-only. The only one I had issues with was Star Post (and I tried them all briefly.)

Re: 486's that valuable??

Have you looked at the price of Apple II / Apple II+ ? (not //e or //c which are a little more reasonable.)
Never should have gotten rid of my loaded Apple II+ 27 years ago :)

VIC20 ROM Cart Loader (in BASIC)

I got fed up with messing around with memory configurations and trying to remember the various SYS addresses for starting Scott Adams, VICMON and Programmers Aid, so I wrote a little BASIC program to help. I have also tried to collect together a complete set of Commodore VIC20 cartridge images (for ...

Re: Scott Adams cart images

The pinned post is pretty useful. As far as I am aware the KERNAL entry points are reasonably well documented (at least the official ones) but the BASIC entry points are harder to find out about. I guess in this case it is all KERNAL stuff since we are actively trying to *avoid* some of the stuff BA...

Re: Scott Adams cart images

Thanks Mike - I think I am going to rework my loader program to use those SYS calls rather than LOAD (which restarts the program leaving variables intact). This will make it much simpler! It is much more elegant not to have to turn off BLK1 in order to load Scott Adams :) Incidentally - is there is ...
