senior_falcon Posted March 7, 2013 Author Share Posted March 7, 2013 Hi Jacques: Can you run XB256 and 256DEMO in Classic 99? To be sure everything worked properly, I downloaded the zipped folder at the top of this page. The zipped folder contains XB256 and 256DEMO which are TI Extended BASIC programs, a PDF of the docs, and a Win994a disk image. I started TELCO on the TI side and Hyperterminal on the PC side, both set to 1200 baud 8-N-1. I had no trouble sending XB256 and 256DEMO (once I went to 1200 baud - 2400 seemed to not work, though it used to in the past) I loaded and ran XB256 with no problems. (When you run XB256 nothing happens that you can see - maybe I should have changed the cursor shape or something like that.) Then I loaded and ran 256DEMO and it worked like it should. I don't know anything about PC99 or the TI994W emulator and can't offer any suggestions about them. XB256 does a CALL FILES(2) from assembly language. Possibly there is some incompatibility with your disk controller. The code used is from TML and was tested back in the day with a Myarc controller and it worked fine. You shouldn't need to convert anything to text and back to transfer these files. Let me know if this works. If it doesn't I have some ideas, but let's try plan A first.
