VIC-20 Terminal program questions

Postby napabar » Thu Oct 12, 2017 11:52 am

For the moment, I need a Terminal program for an unexapnded VIC-20.

I know of three options.

1. VICTERM I. This shipped with the original Commodore modem that plugged into your phone to do the dialing. It is written in ML, but supports no dialing from the software. I have this, and it's useless because of that.

2. Commodore had newer terminal program out later called, confusingly, VICTERM I. This was for newer modems that supported direct dialing. It is at least partially written in BASIC, and you'd store your dial numbers in line numbers of the BASIC program.

3. AUTOTERM. This shipped last with the Commodore Automodem. It also runs on an unexpanded VIC-20. I've used this one before back in the day, but no longer have it.

Does anyone know where to download #2 or #3?

Thanks!!

I got a VIC-Modem for Christmas as a kid and I remember there being a type-in terminal program in the back of the manual. It was basic, with supported ML data statements. I do remember it working though! Maybe if you locate a manual you could type it in :)

I don't see any ML, but it's a VIC-20 type-in terminal.
