Yet Another Norton-Commander Clone
« on: 07:53, 08 September 16 »
Puhhh, this was a long-hard-way, but i think YANCC for ACMEDOS and AMSDOS is stable enough to introduce a public beta-version to the forum.
YANCC exist only as a ROM-Version, so you need a ROM-Board...
What should i say about the program, if you don't know what "norton commander" is, then i think, you dont need this program ;-)

Please read the TXT there are additional Infos inside, especially the warning section is important!
I will put new versions in the 1st post. Please take a look, which ACMEDOS-Version is required, if you don't have the correct version, YANCC maybe will not be run.
Please post your suggestions, when you found a bug (reproduceable?) or whatever in this thread.

Added 10:33 - Future plans:
I'm searching for a beta-tester of the M4-Version and a graphic artist, who can make a background image for a launcher mode.
(both things are planned in the next months, but takes some more time)

Added 20.09. 08:51: XMASS 0.8P
Added 22.09. 08:37: Added new Version ("A"-Key fixed + BASIC-Config to prevent YANCC constitutes colors)

Great news!  8)

Is-it just possible that YANCC not set (or allow to change) the colour palette to keep the "white on blue" CP/M style adopted by the FW3.1x?

Was my 1st idea, but i dont want to skip the plain AMSDOS-Users.
I think, i will refresh my BASIC-knowledge and will try a "Config-Construction-Kit" and then modify directly the ROM.BIN-File.

So, don't set any colour into your ROM and let the user chose what is good for him (default or x-mass booting file)  ;D

And how get I this mega-cool-colours on my CPC, when I boot directly into YANCC?  ;)

In a future version (may be 0.80) at start we plane to RUN a BASIC file named something like AUTOBOOT.BAS / AUTORUN.BAS if found into the ROOT.
Because it is more powerfull than all BAT systems existing on PC... And everybody know how to do.  8)

My first PC (on which I used NC) had an amber screen, so the current colours are almost perfect for me :)

Amber was more dark red and orange than black and yellow.  ;D
