+9640News Posted December 14, 2019 Share Posted December 14, 2019 As far as XOP's and interrupts, please keep in mind programmers have approached multiple routes for some of their programming. Some programs using the XOP's to do/get video data and keyboard data, while others go straight to the ports and bypass the XOP's all together. Some even mix things up depending upon the needs or what worked for them at the time. I'm not sure how your "Supervisor mode" would interact in these situations. Your first task should be to get an unmodified latest version of MDOS running. If you accomplish that, then everything else is bread and gravy and existing programs should work. If it is not possible to get the latest MDOS version running "as is" without modification, then there are going to be many programs that will not run and I would question how many people would actually jump on board. As far as a cartridge port, myself, I am not particularly keen on a cartridge port. Are there really any cartridges that users wish they could run on their Geneve? Outside of potentially DragonSlayer and perhaps Matt's Finalgrom cart for the TIPI, those would be the only two cartridges. From what I read, it took the developer several years to reach the point where it was ready for release. Is there really any other ports that would be in cartridge form only that would be used on the Geneve 2020? Just trying to be realistic here.
