Panther Posted March 25, 2022 Share Posted March 25, 2022 (edited) SimCheck is a utility that's possibly useful for those with more Atari computers than they can keep track of. SimCheck detects and displays information on the following: System type (XL/XE or 400/800) CPU type (6502, 65C02, 65C816) Base memory size High memory size (65C816) XL/XE (PORTB), Axlon, and Mosaic banks PORTB bank bits and compability (Compy-Shop / RAMBO) OS version BASIC version Video system, frequency, and GTIA or CTIA U1MB/Incognito VBXE Sophia 2 PokeyMAX Display of base and extended memory maps, Axlon banks Executable and 8K cartridge version included. SimCheck-1.5.xex SimCheck-1.5.bin Version 1.2: Minor updates including some text and additional Axlon info in the memory map. Version 1.2a: Corrects Axlon detection bank order. Version 1.2c: Fixes issues with Axlon/Mosaic bank detection. Version 1.3: Adds display of writable base memory in 4K blocks. Minor fixes. Version 1.4: Reorganized memory allocation, fixes to cartridge behavior, corrected Mosaic memory detection issues, minor display updates, added GTIA/CTIA detection. Version 1.4a: Fixed GTIA/CTIA detection not always working (OS dependent). Version 1.5: Various fixes, added 65C816 high memory detection. SimTest is a memory test utility, available in both executable and cartridge versions. SimTest is currently still being developed and currently tests base memory and Axlon banks. It is completely non-destructive and tests all available base memory, including its own program space. On an XL/XE system with no cartridges loaded, SimTest can test all 64KB base memory except the hardware register range, D000-D7FF. Features are still being added. SimTest-0.8.xex SimTest-0.8.bin Version 0.7: Added Axlon bank testing, improved test information. Version 0.8: Added extended memory testing, fixed test of 1MB Axlon. OSDump allows dumping a system's OS to disk and detects whether a system is an XL/XE or 400/800, providing the appropriate options. Each OS can be dumped in its entirety, or you can select individual portions (E000-FFFF main OS, D800-DFFF floating point math package, etc.), with support for OmniMon/OmniView and other OS's residing at C000-CFFF on a 400/800. Currently the system stores ROMs to default filenames on D:, but future versions will likely allow selecting save paths. OSDump-1.2.xex Version 1.2: Added menu with dump options. MFDisk is designed to work with the internal Atari 800 version of the MyIDE interface, such as the one found on the GPB by Panos. It's a rewrite of the FDISK.BAS program that was included on the utility disk from Mr. Atari. It might also work with other versions of the MyIDE, including the external version. MFDisk.xex Edited November 5, 2022 by Panther Added MyIDE FDisk. 24 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
