Thanks again for all the help. I do have one question though. I have a SD2IEC SD device that plays carts, prog and D64 files. Why don't prog and D64 files work with the FE3? Or maybe they do and I don't know how to do it.

Update: actually I think I figured it out. I just used a card with SJload on it and I can run everything.

The FE3's SD card slot is a fully functional SD2IEC device. You use it just like you would a standard SD2IEC. Maybe you are using some sort of file browser with the other one so you don't know the commands?

To change to another directory:

@"CD/Directory Name

To open a D64:

@"CD:Program.d64

Here's a good article with the commands. Just put an @" before any of the commands shown on the site.

There is a guy on eBay that sells 30 cm moulded IEC cables in the UK. Jim Brain also sells them on go4retro.com too

The clock was new to me, so I thought I would share....

Setting the Real Time Clock
The following command can be used in direct mode to set the date and time for the real time clock after changing the RTC battery:

Code: Select all

OPEN15,8,15,"T+WA<weekday> mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss AM"+CHR$(13):CLOSE15


Change AM to PM if it is afternoon. :P

For the weekday use the following notation:
SUN.
MON.
TUES
WED.
THUR
FRI.
SAT.

Setting the VIC-20's clock to FE3's clock:

Code: Select all

5 I=1:DIMT$(27)
10 OPEN15,8,15,"T+RA"
20 GET#15,T$(I):I=I+1:IFST<>64THEN20
25 CLOSE15
30 TI$=T$(15)+T$(16)+T$(18)+T$(19)+T$(21)+T$(22)
40 PRINTTI$

I'm glad your devices arrived! Thanks for posting the information on the RTC. It's a bit difficult to use but not too bad once you do it a few times.

For a quick display of the current time, use the following command with the dos wedge.

@t-ra
@

That copies the time from the RTC to the SD2IEC error channel then displays the error channel.

Another good one is to get the date and time of files along with the directory listing:

@$=T

or

LOAD"$=T",8
