chad5200 Posted February 4 Share Posted February 4 I have been playing around with Carina II BBS software lately with SpartaDos 3.2Z. I have an Atari 800XL with Ultimate 1MB with latest firmware. Carina is very modular with many Basic programs that RUN each other. I am using Atari BASIC rev C. Something I have been experiencing occasionally is one BASIC program tries to RUN another BASIC program... but the new program does not fully load. It's like it is experiencing a timeout in the middle of the load. Obviously, this causes the program to fail and everything stops. When I LIST the program, the first part of the program lists fine but at some point the listing turns to garbage. I reboot, try again, and everything is fine. So it's only happening occasionally. I have my ATR's mounted via my own local TNFS server. I am running the latest FujiNet firmware. I am wondering a network "hiccup" would cause this behavior? Or maybe if the TNFS host is "busy" for a couple seconds during a FujiNet disk read might do this? Possibly a timeout of some sort? I am looking for any suggestions as where to look. Is there a timeout limit during a disk read on the Atari? If so, are there any settings to help counter this? A "read retry" setting or something? Thanks, Chad Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
