That's right, ROManager only works with real CPCs / 6128plus, but not with emulators. So either copy ROMs back from the CPC to the PC to use it there with emulators, or PM me and tell me which ROM you want to have a which position, so I can do that for you.


Also, when using ROManager to install an XROM with WinApe it doesn't work. But the ROM is not at RAM block &C4 between &4000 and &7FFF with corrected ROM numbers. So leave FutureOS (press Q and 2), then in BASIC, type:


memory &3fff
out &7fff,&c4
save"rom",b,&4000,&4000


Now you got the ROM on DSK.  :)

For the next release I plan an adaptor tool to adapt ROM numbers for XROMs for EPROM cards and emulators.  :)

Quite some time ago remax suggested that it would be good to have a way to define a wallpaper. Now, we can  :)

List of the Updates:
  • Second Wallpaper (WP) XROM generated. Both ROM's now use the autostart function to display a WP at startup
  • FutureOS X-ROMs will now be initialized during cold boot.
  • Exit-OS / Restart-OS more reliable, Register R will be restored in case something changes 8. bit of R. This is important when calling FutureOS from the native OS and you want to return with intact memory.
  • 6128 Plus: Proportional arrow movement enhanced (especially when date/time is shown in letter instead of icons)
  • "End of File" message will now be shown inverted for better readability
  • Recognition of Speech Synthesizers enhanced (LambdaSpeak, dk'tronics etc...)
Order your personal version from TFM now! :) :) :)

Hi Gunhed,

I know zero about FutureOS so two questions:

1. Are Parados format 3.5" discs supported?
2. Is there an inbuilt file manager?

Cheers,

Peter

Thanks for your interest.  :)

In general there is a Wiki article about it:
http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php/FutureOS

On my homepage you can download the OS, applications, games and documentation (see download section):
http://www.FutureOS.de

1. Are Parados format 3.5" discs supported?
On 3.5" and 5.25" floppy discs it does support Vortex format (which is also supported by Varados or Parados with Vortex format enabled - that's the same  :) ).

2. Is there an inbuilt file manager?
Yes, you can load, save, type, print, delete, copy files and show their file headers.

Let me know if I can help any further  :) :) :)

Thanks for the reply GUNHED.

Is there a cartridge version, available now, for the 6128 Plus?

Cheers,

Peter

Always a pleasure  :)  Yes there are Cartridge versions. A 128 KB one which automatically starts. And a 512 KB one which contains FutureOS, CP/M Plus and SymbOS (also HxC ROM). The latter one was made by Dragon. Thanks again!  :)  (It's all in the same download archive at futureos.de).

If you have questions, request a personal version or anything else - just let me know. Any kind of help will be provided.  :)

Actually! What do you think about the Automatic-DIR functionality? Shall it be standard in future?

Also, do you prefer time/date shown as icons or as letters?

Please give some feedback, only your comments can make things better!  :) :) :)

Since this was requested I updated the Disc with the XROMs for FutureOS (see OS download). Now this DSK contains two tools for:
  • Defining / Installing a target ROM select number for XROMs (this is done by ROManager too, but you will need this tool if you use Emulators or burn you own EPROMs). Also the checksum is adapted of course.
  • Defining if and which Wallpaper shall be used automatically when cold booting FutureOS
If you have more feature requests just let me know. :)

Today (after someone suggested that to me) I created a paetron site:
https://www.patreon.com/FutureOS

I would like to ask you for comments how to make it better. Is the pricing fine? Does it make sense at all?

WoW! Damn the PCs! It works from here (Windoof 7 and Chrome), but not that important at all. As long as the original HP works for downloads.  :)


EDIT: Maybe it's because I needed to launch it. Sorry all that paetron stuff is new for me.

Hi GUNHED,

Are the cartridges still available and if so what is the cost of each?
Also, I have a Rombox attached to the 6128 Plus - would the carts interact or clash with this?

Cheers,

Peter

The files for the Cartridges are in my download section. You can use them for the C4CPC.

If you want a Cartridge - oh well - I need an EPROM burner for this first.

The Cartridges do not interfere with a ROM-Box or any other ROM expansion, since the ROMs are located at positions higher than &80.

Let me know if you need a physical Cartridge, but meanwhile it's more easy to use the Cart-file for the C4CPC expansion.  :)
