Altirra64: starting .xex file?

Recommended Posts

Default is to save settings in registry, you have to change this to save the settings to a file,

make a copy of the file, make your changes, then to recover, just use the saved copy.


In Altirra, go to Tools-> Options, then select "Settings" the switch is there to select File or Registry settings.

There's nothing special about .XEX files, they are just normal executable files normally run from

some version of DOS, although you can run them directly from some of the modern cartridges.


In a nutshell if they are not running there's something wrong with your setup.

Had a look at your .XEX file, if your using DOS of any kind, this won't run, it will be overwriting DOS files

please see below where the code is loaded:-


Segment  1: Load:0900 End:0C9A Size:039B
Segment  2: Load:0CA0 End:0E85 Size:01E6

Guess you have 400/800 mode activated in Altirra (the mentioned memopad mode is from these computers) and thats why the program does not run ? Or you activated (only) 16k RAM and therefore the program does not run ? 


I suggest to setup Altirra for XL-OS Revision 2 and somewhere between 128K and 1088K RAM. This should load most XEX programs. Last not least, the option for Basic on/off in Altirra is not always easy to understand (no clue why it does not simply say Basic on/enabled -or- Basic off/disabled), most XEX files will only work with Basic off/disabled.
